Nvidia 6200

Hi all,

Im having trouble gettin my nVidia 6200 drivers installed. I have searched on the boards and only found a couple of instances of my issue but no resolution. I try

yum install kmod-nvidia

it runs through its files then ends with

Quote:
Error: nvidia-x11-drv conflicts with xorg-x11-drv-nvidia
I have been running Linux for a bit now but never encountered this error. know any fixes?

Thanks in advance

Why did you try to install two nvidia drivers ?


nvidia-x11-drv = freshrpms based nvidia driver

kmod-nvidia = Livna nvidia driver

That Worked!

I used to just use yum install kmod-nvidia and yum just installs what it needs, but I guess it didn't do that this time. any ideas as to why?
