FC14: Nvidia Quadro FX 1700 troubles with akmod-nvidia

Hi all!

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:
  • akmod-nvidia-260.19.36-1.fc14.x86_64
  • xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-260.19.36-1.fc14.x86_64

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.

Re: FC14: Nvidia Quadro FX 1700 troubles with akmod-nvidia

To give you guys some updates:
Just tried to uninstall all drivers and install the latest testing drivers. I used the followings:
  • akmod-nvidia-275.09.07-1.fc14.ccrma.2.x86_64.rpm
  • xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-275.09.07-1.fc14.ccrma.x86_64.rpm
  • nvidia-settings-1.0-11.fc14.x86_64.rpm
  • nvidia-xconfig-1.0-9.fc14.x86_64.rpm
  • xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-275.09.07-1.fc14.ccrma.x86_64.rpm

However it did not help me. The only difference is that it doesn't hang at the same place in the Xorg.0.log file:
