Just installed Fedora 8.
The generic NVIDIA drivers that came out the box seemed to work well except that they did not support Compiz and Desktop effects. So, I installed kmod-nvidia and dependancies on my laptop (LCD max. resolution 1280x800) via yum from the Livna repository.
When I restart X, desktop effects etc work fine but the screen resolution is worse when compared to the generic driver..and I have the screen resolution correctly set to the maximum of 1280x800.
I have the NVIDIA GEFORCE Go 8400M GS chipset.
Any ideas ???
