yum install nvidia-glx kernel-module-nvidia-`(uname -r)` DIDN'T WORK :(

Below is the startup script for loading the module. I commented where it fails and goes to the else statement.
I followed the instructions from the fedorafaq. I ran:
yum install nvidia-glx kernel-module-nvidia-`(uname -r)`
and it completed sucessfully.

if [[ "${FGLRXSTATUS}" = "enabled" ]]
then
if action "Checking for ati-fglrx kernel module" test -f $module
#NOTE: THIS IS WHERE IT FAILS. THERE IS NO fglrx.ko ON MY SYSTEM
# SO IT GOES TO THE ELSE GET THIS MESSAGE BELOW.
then
retval=0
else
echo
echo "`basename $module` module for `uname -r` kernel not found"
echo "DRI will not work within X with the ati-fglrx driver. Get"
echo "an updated/suitable 'kernel-module-fglrx-<kernelver>' rpm"
echo "from rpm.livna.org"
retval=1
sleep 3
fi
fi

So my question is what can I do to get this medule installed. I really want to play 3d games soon.

Thanks in advance.

I found this on the http://rpm.livna.org/kernel-modules.html site:

# kernel-module-fglrx
The ati-fglrx package does not depend on the kernel-module-fglrx cause the Xorg/XFree86 driver can work without it -- but there will be no DRI-Support without a suitable kernel module. A script executed at boot time will warn you during bootup in this case.

If I have no DRI support I don't have 3D acceleration?

ati-fglrx.i386 8.12.10.1-0.lvn.1.3 installed

I found this in by running <yum list installed>

I'm a little baffled by all this.

ati-fglrx.i386 8.12.10.1-0.lvn.1.3 installed

ati!

The top post says nvidia but that was just a copy/paste error.
This is the command I actually ran:

yum install ati-fglrx kernel-module-fglrx-`(uname -r)`

Thanks.

I don't have 3D acceleration. In other words I can't play games cause they are too slow.
It installed the package but the package didn't install the kernel module for some reason.

When the startup script runs I get an error because:
#NOTE: THIS IS WHERE IT FAILS. THERE IS NO fglrx.ko ON MY SYSTEM
No fglrx.ko
No DRI - Direct Rendering support.
It is still 2D. Same as if I never installed the package.

So, I installed everything but still can't play enemy-territory etc...
Tuxracer is slow and unplayable etc...

Thanks again.

SElinux may be the problem

I just found this on another post. It may be the problem! If it is how do I turn off SElinux from the command line. I want to turn it off on a server also that doesn't have X installed.

Try installing nvidia drivers lately?
SELinux doesn't let you install new modules.
You have to turn off SELinux to install accelerated 3D nvidia drivers.

Found this: Gonna try again after work!

Turning SELinux off

As you'd expect with Linux, there are a number of ways to turn off SELinux. You can :-

1) Add selinux=0 to the kernel line within your /boot/grub/grub.conf file. Then, when you next boot, SELinux will not be started.


2) Add SELINUX=disabled to your /etc/sysconfig/selinux file (which may be a link to "/etc/selinux/config").

Disable parts of SELinux

Within Gnome or KDE you can use the System menu option Security Level, which runs the gui based program system-config-securtylevel.

This has a tab marked SELinux, which shows you what you can turn on and off.

From the SELinux service protection option within (at the bottom) the list of options you can turn off (disable) SELinux protection for particular daemons, such as portmap and syslogd.

You can also, from the SELinux tab, stop/start the enforce option (SELinux can be run either to enforce its policy, or simply to report on any breaches - you'll get loads of avc: denied messages if you do).

I found a solution

Well I finally just installed the following kernel and all is well. I didn't realize there was so few modules. The default FC3 kernel and the current one are not supported.
kernel-2.6.10-1.770_FC3.i686.rpm
It can be found here:
http://frontier.eas.asu.edu/updates/heidelberg/i686/

Here is a pretty site
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: RADEON 9200SE DDR Generic
OpenGL version string: 1.3.5010 (X4.3.0-8.12.10)
J

Special thanks goes out to this guy from the fedora-list:

I think you find the right Kernel here:

http://frontier.eas.asu.edu/updates/heidelberg/i686/

I am using 2.6.9 since my system hangs randomly after unplugging some USB
devices. Everything works well with this "old" Kernel.

Thanks a lot!! I've been looking for that kernel for a long time (the exact same problem as yours)...I usually forced the drivers to work with the 2.6.9 kernel (the one that comes with FC3), but that usually led to problems later down the road.

Glad to help. I have a feeling there are lots of people in this situation. BTY, I was playing enemy-territory all night and the graphics were awsome. I think better than when I had XP. It seems more realistic. I am not sure the mouse and keyboard responds as good as XP though.

jmachine....

So what did you finally end up doing to get it to install those ATI drivers??? Mine is not loading the kernel-module even though yum says it did. During bootup, it says it cant find a suitable kernel module. Also, its running MESA.....

Did you turn off SELINUX and install again or what??

I installed a kernel that was supported is all. yum did the rest. You just have to have the right match of kernel and module.
