I'm trying to install the newest Nvidia Drivers on a clean install of Fedora 9. The driver version is 173.14.12. I installed it using the nvidia utility and it installs cleanly, but when I try to start X I get an error that
NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidia0
If I check dmesg the output is:
NVRM: failed to copy vbios to system memory.
NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x30:0xffffffff:898)
NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed
I'm running a Nvidia Geforce 7900GT and previously had a working driver on Fedora 8. Has anyone else had this problem?
