Re: NVidia drivers on FC2?



Thanks!

I have never loaded this rivafb driver knowingly, but does not mean a thing:
how do I find out if I really do load this driver? 

Also the problem of gdm does not go away. Also, graphical boot goes haywire, so
I took off the rhgb.

Thanks for any help, and best wishes!
