Kernel 2.6.33.5-124.fc13.i686 causing problems

New kernel update 2.6.33.5-124.fc13.i686 is causing problems with my nvidia geforce 9500. Resolution changed to 800x600 and i can't change it to 16x9 ( 1366x768). I have to go back to 2.6.33.5-112.fc13.i686. I have installed before kmod-nvidia-PAE & xorg-x11-drv-nvidia. Without nvidia-packages my screen will jammed totally during even short session.

It seems the kernal update went out without the nvidia kmod being ready. Happens occasionally. You found one solution. The other is to install the akmod and then it will automatically create the kmod if it doesn't exist for the kernal you are booting.

Re: Kernel 2.6.33.5-124.fc13.i686 causing problems

Why is this crap tolerated on a Fedora Linux forum?

The only src code for a nviidia video card in Fedora Linux is xorg-x11-drv-nouveau

The drv from nvidia has no src code and IT breaks the kernel.
The kernel does not break the drv.
The nvidia drv can not be fixed by anyone but nvidia corp.
Pleas ask nvidia to fix the drv, or use xorg-x11-drv-nouveau.
PLease stop posting about the nvidia drv that has no src code to fix and is not part of Fedora Linux.

Please, please, please.
Pretty please.
Pretty please with sugar on it,
STOP.

It doesn't matter.
The nvidia drv can not be fixed to work by anyone in Fedora Linux and the kmod, akmod, and several install procedures have been discussed to a slow boring repeating go nowhere T.V. show like LOST for the last 5 and 1/2 years.
So what is the point of another post when this site has thousands of posts of the same subject already?

There are so many, they spin the forums in a day sometimes.
The site may as well be called "newbie video and sound shop".

Re: Kernel 2.6.33.5-124.fc13.i686 causing problems

I will be happy to switch to nouveau when it works for me. The last time I tried it along with its experimental add-ons, which was fairly recently, you still couldn't do transparency in KDE with it. The proprietary driver works. The nouveau driver works for most basic video functions.

Of course people should search better and more often before asking a question. Yet when I click on FAQ (where a new person might be most likely to click first) and enter any of kernel, nvidia, or video in the search box I get no results back. This leads to people creating a new thread.

Leigh has some great setup guides, and I appreciate them and have used them. But even these would be better if they were single pages laid out in a non-forum format more like a true manual page, broken down more for video card type and the like, with a separate thread linked to each that held the discussion for issues common to particular hardware rather than being currently 51 pages of discussion thread on all sorts of nvidia boards. Any useful information could be moved back from the discussion thread to the main pages. Perhaps vbulletin doesn't lend itself to that, but perhaps another back end like drupal could be used for those features and would make several problem solutions like bind, apache, sendmail, postfix, and the like easier to develop and support than the existing vbulletin format does.

Regardless, as long as this forum links to solutions for using the proprietary drivers packaged by rpmfusion and until the open source driver works for all nvidia cards and fully supports them, the forum gets the responsibility of handling comments and questions about each. Dropping the links to drivers that make the hardware work better in Fedora would be a mistake.

Re: Kernel 2.6.33.5-124.fc13.i686 causing problems

Kernel 2.6.33.5-124.fc13.i686:

For this kernel there in no precompiled nvidia.ko available. However, you can copy the nvidia modules from old kernel 2.6.33.5-112.fc13.


If you want nvidia to work properly. Modify your grub boot line as:

original:

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.33.5-112.fc13.x86_64 ro root=/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root rd_LVM_LV=VolGroup/lv_root rd_NO_LUKS rd_NO_MD rd_NO_DM LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYTABLE=us rhgb quiet

New:

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.33.5-112.fc13.x86_64 ro root=/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root rd_LVM_LV=VolGroup/lv_root rd_NO_LUKS rd_NO_MD rd_NO_DM LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYTABLE=us rhgb quiet rdblacklist=nouveau iommu=soft


You can add this line to your /grub/menu.lst file.Your nvidia card will work perfect. Mine is working fine.
