I've been using the kmod-nvidia packages without any trouble for some time, but after my last kernel update (2.6.20-1.2925.fc6) and installing the corresponding kmod-nvidia package my x-server failed. My only option was to use a new 'blank' configuration but since the nvidia module was not specified my screen is offset 0.5cm to the right.
So I tried to install the nvidia driver manually. (I have the right kernel-devel package installed), but the installer tells me "No NVIDIA graphics adapter found!"
I read through the lolg file and found the following:
NVRM: The NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400 GPU installed in this system is
NVRM: supported through the NVIDIA 1.0-96xx Legacy drivers. Please
NVRM: visit http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html for more
NVRM: information. The 1.0-9755 NVIDIA driver will ignore
NVRM: this GPU. Continuing probe...
NVRM: No NVIDIA graphics adapter found!
Does that mean that since my card is now considered 'old' and is no longer supported by the standard drivers? Will I need to manualyy install an older version of the nvidia driver from the nvidia archive?
