F14 3D support for Nvidia

Hi All,

I finishing a install of F14 (i386) on a Laptop with the Nvidia fx 5650 gpu
I installed the drivers from the Nvidia site. BUt when trying to set up Desktop effects, I get a Accelerated 3D graphics is not available.

I had effects working in F11 so wondering wjhat I may need to do to get 3d working in F14?

I have nouveau blacklisted in modprobe.d and in grub...

Did you install the correct driver for your card? The FX series need the legacy driver as the current one no longer supports it.
See http://http.download.nvidia.com/XFre...rtedchips.html

Re: F14 3D support for Nvidia

I used the latest supported driver set for the gpu, 173.14.28

but I think there is more needed that just blacklisting the nouveau drives and running the install script.
even glxinfo complanes w/ glxCreateContext failed....


In F11, it was as simple as running the install script and 3D works....

Re: F14 3D support for Nvidia

Sorry not familiar with the driver from their site as I always use the RPMFusion driver. You could remove the nvidia driver and replace the Fedora files it overwrites and try the kmod following Leigh's guide, link in my signature. There is a 173 option there.

Your other option is the nouveau driver with the mesa experimental driver. Some people have reported success with that.

Ah, Better. glxinfo now reports it's working and compiz is no longer reporting an error.
I followed the install for rpmfusion, so no worries...
Still a mystery why the Nvidia driver doesn't work "off the shelf"


Thanks ...

Hmm, it usually does.
I guess you didn't really get rid of nouveau module before installing it. Just blacklisting it is mostly not enough, I need to rename the module and recreate ramdisk before using Nvidia driver.

I noticed that rpmfusion's driver not only blacklists the module (which like I said is not enough on my system), but they also disable nouveau's KMS feature. Maybe it's necessary along with blacklisting it to TRULY disable it w/o manually renaming/deleting the module and recreating ramdisk.
