I am using Fedora 11 64 bit with GNOME.
I recently(2 months ago) inserted an EVGA NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT into the PCI-E slot on my motherboard.
I was able to install NVIDIA drivers for it by following some instructions I found online. I think it required me to the use an akmod command.
Once I had the driver I was able to enable desktop effects which I could not do before.
The graphics card seems to work well.
I installed the game "urban terror" to test its capabilities and when it the program is set to the maximum setting the fps varies but I frequently reach the program's ceiling which is 125.
The reason I am posting this is because even though the GFX adapter is working I still get an error every single time I turn on the computer.
At the login screen there are 2 icons at the lower right: an accessibility icon and a boot message icon.
When I click the boot message icon there appears to be a log of the system startup process and everything seems to be fine except for a line that says:
Enabling the Nvidia driver: /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions:line513:1219 segmentation fault "$@" failed
What should I do?
is the file the error is referring to.
Edit: I tried to take a screen shot of the error while at the login screen but when I pressed the Print Screen key all that happened was I saw those small blue orbs spin around the mouse pointer in a circle(this usually shows that the computer is loading something).
I pressed the key a number of times.
Is it possible that the screenshot key worked and the images are located somewhere on my hard drive?
