Hello fedora users,
I have a problem with my nvidia card. The system freezes from time to time and the input is laggy. I type in characters but they appear delayed some time.
It all began with the update to fedora 21. I have to use another gfx card driver now because the one from rpmfusion doesn't work anymore. I used to
yum install akmod-nvidia
But then I got a version which doesn't support my nvidia card anymore. It is a
[timo@fed ~]$ lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GT215 [GeForce GT 240] (rev a2)
Then I tried the nouveau driver. But it happened very often that the system was frozen. Had to do a hard reset.
I downloaded and installed the driver from Nvidia themself with their installer script.
IIt worked in the first place and the bad thing is I have to run the script everytime the kernel is beeing updated. Which happens frequently on fedora.
I tried to go back to less gfx eye candy using the gnome classic environment and it seems to be a little better with that. But the delay of keystrokes is still present. Also the freezing is still there but much less frequent.
I am not very happy with this and I would not like to buy a different gfx card because of this. Does anybody know a solution?
