f14 nvidia driver problem with rt kernel

Hello. I've been unable to boot into x using the real-time kernel from CCRMA at home. I get the error "Failed to load module "nvidia" (module-specific error,0) no drivers available. I'm using the driver from Nvidia. I know that this is not an official Fedora kernel and I should be bothering CCRMA about this, but in the mean time could I edit the entry in grub.conf so that it will use the Nouveau driver for that kernel only? That way I could "dual-boot", and just use the rt kernel when I want to use audio software and don't need 3d graphics. Thanks very much.

In short? Yes, you should be able to do it. Edit your xorg.conf to change your driver from nvidia to nouveau.

Thank you, but I was hoping for a way to use nouveau for only the ccrma kernel and leave it as nvidia for the standard Fedora kernel.

add rdblacklist=nvidia to the GRUB entry? (I'm not sure whether that will work)

My entry already had that. I've also tried adding nouveau.modeset=0.

Re: f14 nvidia driver problem with rt kernel

In case any future forum searchers are interested, I did end up getting the nvidia driver working with the ccrma kernel, thanks to Fernando on the ccrma mailing list. I doubt anyone else will have this exact problem, but in my case I booted the ccrma kernel in single user mode and ran /usr/sbin/akmods --force. It failed, but I saw digest and archive errors in the log, and figured I had gotten a bad download. Removing and reinstalling akmod-nvidia solved the problem. Marking as solved.
