Nvidia FC4 Crash

Sorry if I posted this in the wrong are... but hey, I'm a newbie. I was wondering if anyone ever figured out what the problem with the Nvidia drivers and FC4 was. It worked fine on FC1, and it works fine if you comment out loading GLX. But OpenGL is slow if you do that, and for someone working on OpenGL, and playing opengl games, that's a problem.

I have no problems using the Nvidia Linux driver for my two FC4 machines with installed Nvidia graphics adapters.

also insure that you setenforce =0 before you compile the module interface if you do not no glx.

Enjoy the Choice

I have the most recent drivers handy, and the card works fine is I comment out GLX, but it crashes on X server startup if I don't. Maybe it was some peculiar detail of the lasti nstallation, or my hardware, well, I'm off to try it again. EDIT: Another crash and burn... one thing I just noticed though, is you're using a 64bit processor, and I'm not. I dunno why that'd make that big of a difference, but it might.

Are you using the official NVIDIA drivers or the Livna ones?

I'm using the official drivers, I didn't know there were other ones. Might those work a little better?

You know how to use Yum? You can install the Livna repository and get the kernel-module-nvidia file. Make sure you get the one corresponding to the kernel you are currently using.

What iamroot means simply is this:-
1. Fire up your favourite terminal and log in as root
2. rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/4/i386/R...5.4.noarch.rpm
3. yum install nvidia-glx kernel-module-nvidia-$(uname -r)
4. Everytime you install a new kernel, you need to do the following before you reboot , yum install kernel-module-nvidia-$(rpm -q --queryformat="%{version}-%{release}\n" kernel | tail -n 1)
Hope that explains things on your side.

Quick note....for parent poster, are you using 24-bit or higher to play some linux games? I had an issue that I just resolved by changing from 16-bit to 32-bit depth..

You have to edit your /etc/xorg.conf and change the depth to 32-bit under display. Try this nvidia how-to: http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=59937

Hm, I know net installations can't stand the proxy server I use, I dunno why. I'm using KDE, and Konsole, though Gnome doesn't do any better. I set up the proxy settings both times, and I'm not sure how to set environment variables in Linux. Could I get a link to the package so I could download it directly, and just rpm -ivh it? I tried yum first, because I was using it fine when I had broadband. EDIT: Well, I figured it out, part of it, going to see if it'll work now
