NVIDIA releases 173.14.05!!!

As of today, 05/28/2008, the downgrade of Xserver 1.3 is no longer needed!!! With Nvidia's release of the new driver they have included Xserver 1.5 support! Thank-you NVIDIA!!!

If you had previously used this guide to downgrade, follow the steps below to reverse the changes and reinstall Xorg Xserver 1.5* and the new Nvidia driver, continuing on to the "TO INSTALL NEW" section.

If you are new to this guide and have not downgraded your Xserver, start at the "TO INSTALL NEW" section.


TO REVERSE DOWNGRADE
Edit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo and /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo
Remove this line:
Code:
exclude=xorg* linuxwacom* rhpxl* mesa*
Remove the fedora8.repo we created, remove 178.08 driver and update your Xorg RPMs.
Code:
rm /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora8.repo
yum remove nvidia-x11-drv
yum -y update
Continue on to the "TO INSTALL NEW" section.
