Re: How to install the nvidia driver in F12 using the run method

It should run without any switches. That is the one command that is bulletproof, as it is nvidia's supported method. -k is used for a non-running kernel. If you run "sh NVIDIA*****.run -A", you should see it.

After you install from the media and execute yum update, a new kernel will be installed. You should see two kernels on the Grub screen. I assume you are booting into the new one and not the old kernel.

Re: How to install the nvidia driver in F12 using the run method

Yes, it is booted to the most updated one. it is all updated. then what else can cause nvidia.ko is not found?

Re: How to install the nvidia driver in F12 using the run method

You might want to look under /lib/modules/2.xxxx

There should be two symlinks. source should point to build and build should point to kernel-devel. All of the numbers should be the same.

Re: How to install the nvidia driver in F12 using the run method

i see. the source does point to build in the same directory. and build point to ../../usr/src/kernels/2.XXXX. The number are all the same. however, when i go to the directory /usr/src/kernels, it is an empty directory. nothing there, no 2.xxxx can be found. what could be wrong?

Re: How to install the nvidia driver in F12 using the run method

You could try reinstalling kernel-devel.

Re: How to install the nvidia driver in F12 using the run method

still have no idea why that is so hard for some
installing the .run is very easy ( a pain in the butt yes ,but easy)
and the akmod solves that

with adding the noueveu as default one needs to rebulid the boot image - easy but not hard
and the .run will still overwrite mesa ( so why is it in step 9 that mesa in installed so that the .run can REPLACE it with different ones)

and WHY is there not a last step for REINSTALLING it
the .run replaces fedoras version of
gl.h
glx.h
glext.h
glxext.h
links fedoras libGL.so to nvidias version libGL.so.270.41.06( ???.??.??)

all these do need to have mesa and mesa-devel -all three different mesa's reinstalled

a pain in the "you know what " but easy to do

the kernel-devel and the software group "Development Tools" need to be installed for the .run
no need with the kmod
the opensource driver needs to be blacklisted
a pain but easy

but then again i have been using the nvidia.run for 6 years and it is easy to install
just a pain in the rear end to do for updates .

Re: How to install the nvidia driver in F12 using the run method

I get the same message. It is not an error. As Leigh noted above, the nVidia driver is released under a non-gnu license. Nouveau is GPL.

It should still boot up and display the nvidia splash screen.

Smile Re: How to install the nvidia driver in F12 using the run method

The run method failed for me because the nouveau driver was part of the kernel and adding a file to /etc/modprobe.d to disable it does not work (the run script tried to disable it that way).

But as posted by Leigh123 here

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showth...ghlight=nvidia

once rpmfusion has been installed on your system, you simply do a yum install "package" and everything is set up the right way, including the disable options at the end of the kernel invocation in grub.conf. (in the above yum command, "package" is the appropriate one for your nvidia card).

Thanks to Leigh123 for making this so easy.
