View Full Version : How to remove nvidia-96xx drivers?
22nd August 2008, 05:58 PM
I want to remove nvidia-96xx and go back to nv. I've removed most of the nvidia stuff through yum, but its still starting the driver on boot and the bin stuff is all still there. How do I do this?

To revert to the 'nv' driver, just edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. Find the line that says:
VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
and change the "nvidia" to "nv". Save file and exit the text editor (you need to be root to edit this file). Then either logout and log back in, or CTL-ALT-Backspace, to restart the X server with the 'nv' driver.
How you remove the nvidia-96xx binaries depends a lot on how you installed them.

As previously mentioned, you never explained exactly how you installed the drivers.
Are you sure removed the correct rpm's? Run the following to check:
rpm -qa | grep 'nv'
If you are not sure which binaries belong to which RPM, run the following with the correct path to the binary you want to remove:
rpm -qf /path/to/file
Also, check your services:
/sbin/chkconfig | grep nvidia
The Livna installer puts a service to enable the Nvidia driver.
