Re: F17 Nvidia guide

Is there word from the guys over @RPMFusion as to when can we expect the 310.3x driver series? Apparently they correct a number of issues with Steam and other gaemes... I know how to install them manually, only I'd rather do it through yum.

Re: F17 Nvidia guide

After updating my f17 system X won't start complaining about nvidia as a missing module:

Everything works ok when running the previous kernel. Amy ideas or suggestions to get the new kernel/driver combination working?

F18 Nvidia guide help

I've read through all that I could find, but I'm not certain of my understanding.

I have an ASUS x93S notebook with an nVidia GeForce GT 540M.
I installed kmod-nvidia, and now fail to get a Gnome log-in screen on Fedora 18 standard install. The boot process seems normal, I see the animated Fedora 'balloon' fill up, it changes to the Fedora symbol, then drops out to a text based screen with the boot log shown.

Can someone please indicate where I have gone wrong, and how to correct it.

Many thanks.

The fact that you are seeingthe fedora logo fill up, means that the nouveau driver is not being successfully black listed, and thus what you get is a driver conflict. Check that nouveau is indeed disabled in the initrd and kernel lines in the GRUB2 configuration (/etc/grub2.cfg). For me this was done automatically after the installation of the kmod-nvidia package, I later installed akmod.

I see the 313.xx driver in rpmfusion rawhide repo. Nothing in the 31x.xx series for F18 though. I was also checking this out because I wanted to launch counter strike.

Did you already blacklist nouveau? If you are seeing the bubble it probably means nouveau is still handling the graphics card.

You can try to blacklist either by adding nouveau to blacklist.conf in /etc/modprobe.d or by adding a blacklist.conf file to /etc/dracut.d. ..

Re: F17 Nvidia guide

I've added the nouveau driver to the blacklist in /etc/modprobe.d and also ran dracut with "--omit-drivers kmod-nouveau".

I have the exact same behavior as before.

Any suggestions ?

kmod-nouveau does not exist....

Re: F17 Nvidia guide

This is what I had.

Code:
$ cat /etc/dracut.conf.d/10-blacklist.conf 
omit_drivers+=" nouveau "
I don't think if kmod-nouveau exists. See if the above helps.

Exclamation Re: F17 Nvidia guide

Has anyone managed to get the graphical Plymouth boot back after installing the Nvidia proprietary driver?
I followed this guide.
The result? I got the graphical boot back, but the GDM login screen didn't appear and only the mouse cursor on a black background was displayed...

Kernel: 3.7.9-201.fc18.x86_64
Nvidia akmod: akmod-nvidia-1:304.64-6.fc18

RPMFusion-Rawhide has an akmod for nvidia: 313.18-2.fc19. (Hell, nvidia's website only lists 310.32 as the latest for Linux) I am running kernel 3.7.9-205, and it ran on prior kernels, 3.7.9-201 & 3.7.8-202. Can't speak for earlier kernels as I was using nvidia's 310.32 from the geforce.com site and recompiling every time I upgraded kernels. What a pain. The 313 akmod has so far recompiled on the fly after a kernel upgrade, what a relief. Highly recommended!!!

Hope this helps.

Re: F17 Nvidia guide

I installed fedora 18 yesterday, I followed this thread, the resolution was right, but I got a problem.
When I play a movie with mplayer, it told me my system is too slow.
I run glxgears, this is the result:
Quote:
$ glxgears
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.120 FPS
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.999 FPS
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.003 FPS
It is only 60 fps! I remember very well that it was 18000 fps when I run in fedora 17.

I don't use MPlayer but VLC, and no problem with movies.

But I remember with F17, glxgears show me a FPS more bigger...

what about 1080p movies? Can you try one and tell me?
I have no problem with playing most of my movies, but when I play a 3d sbs movie, the problem occurs.
