only Section "Device" appear nothing else. Will wait until the next crash to try your solutions and will let you know if this fix the problem.
The other section belongs in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-nvidia.conf and is part of the rpmfusion driver.

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

spambot
that was a very fast answer :-), I had not finished editing the post lol.

Keep checking your /var/log/Xorg.0.log,
you should get it so that there are no lines with EE (indicating an error), it is usually quite informative.

Try:
glxgears

to test that the GLX library is working properly.

I hope you get it sorted, I found once I had dealt with all the errors, the updates all work with no further troubles.

spambot,

leigh123linux is the man, follow his advice, not mine ;-)

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

Thank you all for the fast reply!

@leigh123linux,

I check what is the output from cat '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-nvidia.conf'
and all seems the same as in your conf file.

The modules path are correct after the nvidia-driver deinstallation.

@jnoake,
Thanks for you reply too.
i test glxgear and seems everything to work proper but when i exit the test in the terminal i receive this error:

Quote:
XIO: fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0"
after 46 requests (46 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
and in log/Xorg.0.log i keep see the errors...

Quote:

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

The Xorg.0.log errors now do not relate to your nvidia display drivers, which appear to have been solved.
The glxgears exit code (from memory) may just be the way it 'pulls the plug' on the app and not really an error.

You could look in the various xorg.conf... Files, and find and remove the bits that relate to the log errors if you wish, but they will not affect the display.

It seems like you have (or had) a wireless kb and mouse that is no longer fully supported or hqs missing software support. Re-installing the Logitech support might clear the errors, but you could safely leave it alone.

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

Is there information on how to reverse the installation of the nvidia drivers in this thread? I've searched the thread using a few different "keywords" and came up empty, at least as far as I can tell.

These drivers are horrible.
Firefox becomes almost unuseable once the drivers are installed.
System locks up at random.
Blah, blah,blah.

It's in there several times.

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

Thanks for the reply Leigh. I didn't think that those 2 commands would be enough considering that we move initramfs.img and build a new one. Thought there should be more to it.

I'm basically asking out of curiosity. I've already managed to get my system back to the way it was pre-nvidia drivers but I used a hammer and chisel appropach.

And by the way, no offense to your hard work implied here either. What you've done with these drivers has been wonderful for the Fedora community. I'm sure it takes up a lot of your time. It has helped me in the past and it is certainly appreciated.

Nouveau is hard to kill and comes back as soon as the blacklist removed.

Perhaps you should have checked to see if 290.10 supported your ancient graphics card which it doesn't.
Nouveau is your only choice.

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

Hi Leigh,
I have two questions:
1. In step 2 of the instructions for F16 why did you use
Code:
yum --nogpgcheck install
instead of
Code:
rpm -Uvh
as in the instructions for F15 and before? For F16 when I used "yum --nogpgcheck install" it claimed "nothing to do" but when I used "rpm -Uvh" it said "could not resolve host download1.rpmfusion.org." The next question regards the solution to this.

2. When I had F15 all I had to do to fix the "could not resolve host" problem was to add a line
Code:
blacklist ipv6
in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, and reboot, upon which step 2 worked fine. That was for F15, but when I do the same thing for F16 I still get the "could not resolve host" error even after blacklisting ipv6. Is there anything different about ipv6 in F16 that would cause this to happen, or could there be a different reason for this error?
Thank you.

Update: Never mind about question 2. Network manager was using the wrong DNS, so after changing it I can get through all of the steps, and the drivers work. P.S. I Love your guides.

Cinnamon has the same requirements as gnome-shell, both need about 256Mb of graphics ram to run IMO.
