Re: NVIDIA drivers working yet?



Has anyone used these RPM's or know if they are safe to use?

Aha, back with normal resolution again.

I did use the nVidia binary installer, I don't recommend that anyone
else does so, but if you do, you need to patch it with a patch from the
nVidia forums, and as somebody pointed out a bit late for me :-) the
modular xorg stuff has moved X's world to /usr/lib64/xorg on my box.
You have to copy the nVidia files from /usr/X11R6/lib64 ->
/usr/lib64/xorg and /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/drivers ->
/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers.

Or you can use the Livna RPM.  Apparently the nVidia installer as it is
can crap up 3D, I don't use 3D so I continue to use The Old Way.
