Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

Hi Secipolla,

I have added GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX with my desired resolution, thank you. (I loose the egg)

You miss one letter in the grub path. :P

/boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Cheers

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

hi !

i am facing problems with the graphics of one computer in my lab.. I am not sure about the driver type and the method used for installing the driver.. sorry.. the video card is nvidia quadro fx 540 and the OS is fedora 16.. The gnome starts smoothly and the graphical effects are looking good.. but when i try to start a video file in full screen it doesn't work... The player works perfect in small window sizes, but when i increase the window size or switches to full screen, there is no video, but i can hear the audio alone.. A similar problem is happening with a visualisation package, paraview also..

is there any solution for this problem?

Code:
[toolpostr@entropy ~]$ rpm -qa *\nvidia\*  *\kernel\*|sort;uname -r;lsmod |grep -e nvidia -e nouveau;cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

The proprietary driver has the problem that gnome-shell animations can get a bit choppy due when compared with nouveau since it does some extra calculations or something.

I have found that adding the following line to your xorg.conf makes the gnome-shell transitions more smoother:

Option "UseCompositeWrapper" "true"

thnx helped a little but still not perfect, maybe in f17 with gnome 3.4 it will be smoother

I'm tempted to try the F16 instructions, but I'm a cautious penguin.

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

Guys, while the title's still the same, I've used the Guide to install nvidia drivers on F17 and they work perfectly. I think Yellowman can confirm that no changes are needed.

The guide on post #1 is still valid for F17.
