Exclamation help!! Nvidia drivers stop at kmod-nvidia-3.2.7-1.fc16.i686.PAE.i686

Ive ugraded to the newest fedora 16 kernel for my desktop computer but I forgot to check for support for my nvidia graphics card. But when I checked the rpm free and nonfree repos for the driver I needed (kmod-nvidia-3.2.9-2.fc16.i686.PAE.i686) wasn't there. The list stoped at kmod-nvidia-3.2.7-1.fc16.i686.PAE.i686. But the wierd thing is I went to my laptop which also has fedora 16 to see if the driver I needed was in the repos "yum list | grep kmod-nvidia" and it was there but when I do the same command on my desktop computer the list only shows older versions of the driver.

Does anyone know how to get the driver I need?

Re: help!! Nvidia drivers stop at kmod-nvidia-3.2.7-1.fc16.i686.PAE.i686

First, make sure you have the rpmfusion-nonfree-updates repo enabled on your desktop computer.

Then try this,
Code:
yum clean expire-cache
yum check-update

Re: help!! Nvidia drivers stop at kmod-nvidia-3.2.7-1.fc16.i686.PAE.i686

Along a similar vein, how about this?

When I installed Fedora this time, I took the option to enable the Fedora and Updates repos during installation. It looks like kmod-nvidia expects to have the 3.2.7-1 kernel installed, but the only kernel my system has is kernel-3.2.9-2. It is a good thing that akmod-nvidia goes ahead and builds the needed kmod or I'd be up a creek.

So, try "yum install akmod-nvidia" and see if that works for you.

I checked into this by filing a bug report on rpmfusion. I got a reply that the newer kmod-nvidia files have been posted, so you should now be able to complete this correctly.

Re: help!! Nvidia drivers stop at kmod-nvidia-3.2.7-1.fc16.i686.PAE.i686

You should have used akmod-nvidia


Code:
[root@main-pc /]# rpm -qa kmod-nvidia\* |sort
kmod-nvidia-3.2.10-3.fc16.x86_64-295.20-1.fc16.x86_64
kmod-nvidia-3.2.9-2.fc16.x86_64-295.20-1.fc16.x86_64
kmod-nvidia-3.3.0-1.fc16.x86_64-295.20-1.fc16.x86_64
[root@main-pc /]#rpm -q akmod-nvidia
akmod-nvidia-295.20-1.fc16.x86_64

You should definitely have used akmod, and then your nvidia drivers will track your kernel without any effort on your part. It's been working for me through several kernels...

Something amiss on your end. Try running yum clean all then yum list kmod-nvidia* and see if that helps.

Re: help!! Nvidia drivers stop at kmod-nvidia-3.2.7-1.fc16.i686.PAE.i686

I did that before I filed the bug report. I got a reply on that which said that a new kmod had been posted this morning. Sure enough, yum install kmod-nvidia now works.

Here's the link for the bug report:

https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2232

The reason given was an outdated mirror being shown by mirrormanager.
However, all is now fixed.

Re: help!! Nvidia drivers stop at kmod-nvidia-3.2.7-1.fc16.i686.PAE.i686

So before All these posts came up and I didn't check this page I simply went to the rpm fussion website browed thier pachages and clicked and installed the right driver right from my browser. THEN a newer kernel came out and I decided to try akmod-nvidia and it worked just fine installing from the repos and it runs the new kernel. THEN I came to look at this page and see what replys I got and so what I'm wondering what's the difference between akmod-nvidia.i686 and installing kmod-nvidia.i686 which requires a driver as a dependancy for a kernel update?

Re: help!! Nvidia drivers stop at kmod-nvidia-3.2.7-1.fc16.i686.PAE.i686

http://rpmfusion.org/Howto/nVidia has this:

Akmods

An akmod is a type of package similar to dkms. As you start your computer, the akmod system will check if there are any missing kmods and if so, rebuild a new kmod for you. Akmods have more overhead than regular kmod packages as they require a few development tools such as gcc and automake in order to be able to build new kmods locally. If you think you'd like to try akmods, simply replace kmod with akmod in the instructions above and run them again. For example, kmod-nvidia-96xx becomes akmod-nvidia-96xx. Akmods are fully compatible with regular kmods, so you can switch between the two or even use both at once without any problems.

Re: help!! Nvidia drivers stop at kmod-nvidia-3.2.7-1.fc16.i686.PAE.i686

Cool. So you said that the bug was fixed so I reinstalled the rpm fusion repos only to see the same problem I had in the first place occur. I'm sure I must have missed something...

"yum clean all" may solve the issue. Yum retains a cache of repository information. Even though you say you reinstalled the repos, some old cache information may be hanging around.

Well, I have reached the end of what I can offer. You will have to do some searching, either of the forums, the Internet at large, or both to see if there is more information. You might try browsing the rpmfusion repositories to see if it has what you are looking for. Perhaps it is a problem with needing to install the pae version of something. Since my equipment is 64 bit, I don't have a PAE kernel loaded to see why it might be failing for you.

Ok I do some research on it meanwhile akmod works. speaking of drivers does any one know how to install CUDA in Fedora? I use Blender to make 3d effects but rendering the scene I want takes a while because it renders on the CPU but CUDA enables it to render on the GPU, its supposed to be a lot faster rendering.
