Re: Delete Nvidia Driver

Sure, you can do it:

Quote:
su yum erase *\nvidia\*
However, are you going to be able to return to nouveau or try some other method for nvidia or is there something else involved?

BTW, this is the more up-to-date guide (Leigh's work, Dan posted it): http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=280750

Yes, that cleaned it all out for me so that I could install them again. BTW, those commands were from Leigh, who's developing the nvidia drivers.
