Join the crowd - a quick search of these forums will reveal literally dozens of video problems related to the latest kernel update, most of them today. Suggest you reboot to the previous kernel.

And you should be using version 169.xx of the nvidia driver for that chipset.

drivers like "169.xx" never work on my pc

before upgrade the kernel , i just use the version 100.14.19. but now it can not be installed on new kernel

i will be happy if drivers "169.xx" work.

Thanks

I do not see a kernel module (kmod-nvidia-*) for that kernel-2.6.24 for the 100.xx series drivers: http://livna-dl.reloumirrors.net/fedora/8/i386/

You will have to upgrade to the 169.xx kmods, or reboot to the old kernel. If you upgrade, expect problems, as many other users have today.

Good Luck,
V

the nvidia driver and the kmod driver install gl32 in different locations and under different names
USE ONE OR THE OTHER BUT NOT BOTH

to quote
"before upgrade the kernel to 2.6.24, i can install driver 100.14,but now i can not install that version."

is in the wrong order install the NEW kernel THEN install the nvidia driver
if there is a kernel or xorg update you must REINSTALL the nvidia driver .
if you are using the kmod driver then yum will auto reinstall the new one ( IF available - may take 0 , 1, 2, or 3 days )
if you are like me i build it then i just run
# cd /
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.01-pkg1.run

it takes about 2 min. finish

thanks joshnvv

i know what you said

but what i want to say is "i want to install new driver no matter where it comes from,but none works"

i have tried many many times to install new driver (169.xx), using yum to upgrade driver or downloading new driver from nvidia.com

the point is new driver can not work on my pc

I hope someone can help me to resolve this problem, how to install new driver on my pc.


i want to know if someone install new driver(169.xx) for Gforce 8600gt on fedora successfully.

or someone install new driver on ubuntu successfully?

please give me the hope.

Hello everybody.

My machine, with an nVidia GeForce FX5200, had problems with the latest nvidia driver in F8 x86 too. The driver did install & work but it did it correctly only at low resolutions (832*[something], the default one for my monitor) but if I set the resolution to 1024*768, the maximum supported by my old CRT monitor , the image just went wrong: it was too 'diluted', as if the driver weren't installed.

I solved the problem by checking the nVidia display settings and selection the correct refresh rate for my display.

Thought this would help someone hitting the same problem.

Thanks.
Joe.
