Nvidia guide for F13 Development.

This is a Three-Step Process. If you don't follow all three steps, your install will fail!



1. Install the nvidia driver. ( if you have 4Gb of RAM or more you will probably have a PAE kernel [32bit only] so follow the PAE part )

For GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9 & 200 series cards

Code:
su
rpm -Uvh  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686
If you use a PAE kernel

Code:
su
rpm -Uvh  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
yum  install kmod-nvidia-PAE
Or (akmod builds the required kmod on bootup )

Code:
su
rpm -Uvh  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
yum install akmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686


2. Edit grub.conf ( if you omit this step the driver will fail to work )


this command adds rdblacklist=nouveau option to /boot/grub/grub.conf

Code:
su -
sed -i '/root=/s|$| rdblacklist=nouveau|' /boot/grub/grub.conf
mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname  -r)-nouveau.img
dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
3. Reboot

No need, just run yum update

i.e

Code:
yum --nogpgcheck update /path/to/rpms

Hi Leigh
Thank that work...
I have just a question:
I am on x64, but for wine I need xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-195.36.03-1.i686
And I don't remember how install (or built...) on my x64...

---------- Post added at 07:56 AM CST ---------- Previous post was at 07:17 AM CST ----------

I found the solution;
Code:
rpmbuild -ba xorg-x11-drv-nvidia.spec --define "kernels $(uname -r)" --target i686

You could use

Code:
rpmbuild -ba xorg-x11-drv-nvidia.spec --target i686
