Re: Send Fedora Your Hardware Profile (Read the initial post first!)

Welcome, I believe that you should start a new thread in the hardware forum.
You have searched each of the forum and the web for info, yes? I'd make that my first step.

Re: Send Fedora Your Hardware Profile (Read the initial post first!)

Well, it isn't so much the hardware as much as getting everything set up for the hardware. I am trying to get the lastest and greatest open source drivers for my computer, primarily my video card and scanner. My video card is is an Nvidia GTS 250 and the scanner is an Epson perfection V500 photo.

Any help would be appreciated. And, if you have anything helpful with my hardware profile will be good. Hopefully my profile help out with the advancement of the open source, let alone Fedora.

Thanks.

A correction to my last reply, my video card is an Nvidia GTX 460, and a 250.

Re: Send Fedora Your Hardware Profile (Read the initial post first!)

for your nvidia card, leigh123linux has put a lot of work into keeping up a nice guide on installing the drivers for it.

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=204752

your scanner is supported by Sane if you use the backend from avasys which is here:

Re: Send Fedora Your Hardware Profile (Read the initial post first!)

Good news/Bad news on the install of the nvidia drivers. The good news is that is installed fine, and thanks for the threads. The bad news is that when I started my computer for the drivers to restart only one of my two monitors were enabled. Through the nvidia x server settings I tried to enable my other monitor and could not write to the x configuration file to reflect both my monitors being enabled because I didn't high privileges to me the change. So I tried to log in as the root user and kept on getting the authentication failure even when the password was correct. Please help here.

By the way, as soon as I can I will see about the scanner driver thread I will post as to how that went.

Thanks,

bigTDG

Re: Send Fedora Your Hardware Profile (Read the initial post first!)

how did you try to sign in as root? using su or sudo? if you use sudo, then you enter the user's password, not root's. If you use su., then enter root's password.

If you tried to log into gnome as root, then it's a little more complicated since the developers have decided in their infinite wisdom to not allow root logon. (this can be changed and there are a few threads on here that show how)

one way to do it would be to logon as your regular user. Then open a terminal window and sign into a root login shell:

su -
(root password)

nvidia-xconfig

This should open up your nvidia settings, but do so as the root user instead of a regular user.

Re: Send Fedora Your Hardware Profile (Read the initial post first!)

I have tried what you said but this the only that I got from the terminal.
[bigT@localhost ~]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost bigT]# nvidi-XCONFIG
bash: nvidi-XCONFIG: command not found...
[root@localhost bigT]# nvidia-xconfig

Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".
Backed up file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' as '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'
New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'

[root@localhost bigT]#
