Nvidia guide

Please note that I won't respond to any post's for help unless this basic information is included!


Code:
rpm -qa *\nvidia\*  *\kernel\*|sort;uname -r;lsmod |grep -e nvidia -e nouveau;cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

F16 Howto for the rpmfusion nvidia drivers



Click here for supported Nvidia cards list


This is a Four-Step Process. If you don't follow all three steps, your install will fail!



1. Update the kernel and reboot

Code:
su
yum update kernel\* glibc\* 
reboot
2. Install the nvidia driver.

For GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9, 200, 300, 400 & 500 series cards


Using akmod: This is the best option in my opinion as you don't get any problems when a new kernel is released.

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ __________
Extra step for PAE kernel only

Code:
su
yum install kernel-PAE-devel
__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ___________

Code:
su
yum --nogpgcheck install  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm
yum install akmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686




Or using kmod (which saves a bit of disk space but will have problems with every kernel update.)
( if you have 4Gb of RAM or more you will probably have a PAE kernel [32bit only] so follow the PAE part )

Code:
su
yum --nogpgcheck install  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm
yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686
If you use a PAE kernel

Code:
su
yum --nogpgcheck install  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm
yum install kmod-nvidia-PAE



3. Add selinux policy to allow gdm and gnome-shell to work


Code:
su
wget http://leigh123linux.fedorapeople.org/pub/nvidia/selinux/nvidia_xserver.pp
semodule -i nvidia_xserver.pp


4. Reboot

If nouveau refuses to die try
Code:
su
yum erase xorg-x11-drv-nouveau
mv  /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau.txt
mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nouveau.img
dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
