Re: Nvidia and Fedora 3-5

Hi! I have been using Fedora since core 1, and since core 3, nvidia has always caused a problem. I always have to jump through hoops to get it to work. How come? On SuSE 9-10 Nvidia has never caused a problem. It doesn't complain that the kernel module can't be built or something weird like that. I was able to get it to work with core 5, but I had to get a new kernel, recompile an rpm, and install a boot-script (found out how on fedoraforums.org)!! What is up with that?

The kernel at time of release for FC5 wasn't compatible with the nvidia or ati binary drivers, since they're closed source it wasn't a release blocker in the dev team's opinion, however a kernel should be released shortly that won't have this problem. Once this is done, simply install the kernel module / driver provided by livna, and you're done, much simpler than fiddling around with the binary installer from nvidia.
