That isn't the akmod service failing

Code:
systemctl --help
There will be a command to list the services, check to see what else failed.

Re: F15,F14, F13 & F12 Nvidia driver guides

ok

xorg.conf was bad:
Code:
$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old
# RPM Fusion - nvidia-xorg.conf
# 
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Videocard0"
    Driver      "nvidia"
EndSection
I've erased it.
Fedora 15 works fine.

Then, by terminal, i've recreated xorg.conf with

Code:
# nvidia-xconfig
Thank you.

Re: F15,F14, F13 & F12 Nvidia driver guides

Hi all,

Had a very frustrating day dealing with my GeForce 9800 GT on Fedora 15 and was wondering if someone could help...

I got the driver installed and loading up (I can tell because the fan sounds like an aircraft under nouveau, and this stopped when the nvidia driver was loaded).

However, Gnome 3 in shell mode runs appallingly. The only way I can actually get the screen to refresh is to toggle the super key on and off (bringing up the overlay). In fallback mode, it's completely fine.

Also, I seemed to be getting SELinux errors, even after performing the necessary steps detailed in the first post.

I've now nuked the install, but if anyone has any ideas I'm willing to try again.

Thanks in advance.

You could try this

Run glxgears before and after to compare the difference.

Re: F15,F14, F13 & F12 Nvidia driver guides

I'm trying to install my card as well and I'm getting the following stuff at the end of the "install":

Error: Package: glibc-2.13.90-9.i686 (fedora)
Requires: glibc-common = 2.13.90-9
Installed: glibc-common-2.13.90-13.x86_64 (@updates-testing)
glibc-common = 2.13.90-13
Available: glibc-common-2.13.90-9.x86_64 (fedora)
glibc-common = 2.13.90-9
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest


Any ideas?

Hey, the SELinux fix for GNOME SHELL, is there a way to apply that policy before restarting?

My understanding is that this has to do with rpmfusion branching F15 into its own repo from Rawhide. So I think the thing to do is wait until that process is complete.

The nouveau driver works tolerably well in the meantime.
