I have setup my own custom image of Fedora 14
and installed the akmod-nvidia
drivers using leigh123linux's guide:
With the exception that I used the latest driver that is available today:
This image has then successfully
being installed on machines having the Nvidia Quadro cards: FX 1500
, FX 1800
and FX 3800
Currently, I have been trying my setup on two different machines with FX 1700
without success. The screen goes black once Fedora has booted. Ctrl + Alt + Fn does not work. The keyboard itself doesn't even responds.
If I uninstall the drivers Fedora boots as it should. I have not seen anyone else on this forum running both FX 1700 and Fedora 14.
By running leigh123linux's required command:
rpm -qa *\nvidia\* *\kernel\*|sort;uname -r;lsmod |grep -e nvidia -e nouveau;
I get this result:
nvidia 10270686 12
i2c_core 27212 1 nvidia
I also tried to delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf and recreated it using:
But it hasn't helped me either. I have attached both Xorg.0.log and xorg.conf to this post. The log does not contain anything suspicious.
I'm running out of ideas..
Anyone else using FX 1700 with Fedora 14?
Now that I compare the Xorg.0.log file with my machine it looks like it stops right before it's trying to detect what card the machine has.
