Smile Thanks.

I am pretty much new to Linux and this really saved my butt. It worked perfectly and I learned alot about command line syntax. Thanks again

Hi there!
Been following this tutorial now for more than 1 month. Even tried re-installing the system, but my problem still remains.

What happens is as follows:
1-I install the system with no problems;
2-I got no errors when installing akmod-nvidia;
3-Disabled noveau in modprobe's blacklist;
4-Edited xorg.conf
but.... when enabling desktop effects or compiz, everything get's ultra-slow and unresponsive...

I'd much thankful if someone could help me.
Thanks in advance

I've the workarounds enabled on ccsm, but the only setting referring to nvidia is the "Force synchronization between X and GLX", witch in turn, being enabled or not, the result is the same...

For what it is worth department.

With fedora 11, kernel-2.6.30.8-64.fc11.i686 the screen redraw was VERY slow. I always had to use the 2.6.29 rev kernels. HOWEVER with the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.42, that problem has been fixed.

Update compiz first using Leigh's tutorial. Your version is buggy and obsolete.
Code:
rpm -qa |grep compiz
compiz-manager-0.6.0-11.fc11.noarch
compiz-plugin-screensaver-0.8.5-1.fc11.x86_64
compizconfig-python-0.8.5-1.fc11.x86_64
compiz-0.8.5-1.fc11.x86_64
compiz-plugins-unsupported-0.8.5-1.fc11.x86_64
compiz-gnome-0.8.5-1.fc11.x86_64
libcompizconfig-0.8.5-1.fc11.x86_64
compiz-plugins-extra-0.8.5-1.fc11.x86_64
compiz-plugin-peek-0.8.5-1.fc11.x86_64
compizconfig-backend-gconf-0.8.5-1.fc11.x86_64
compiz-plugins-main-0.8.5-1.fc11.x86_64
compiz-bcop-0.8.5-1.fc11.noarch
If on i386 arch, you'll get version 0.8.3 IIRC, and that's fine.

Updated compiz-fusion like Leigh's manual (as instructed by Nokia) and updated the nVidia driver for NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.42 (as instructed by caddr) and all is working fine now!

Thank you all for the assistance!

Cheers!

Leigh123 in your post dated 25/11/2008 it includes F12 in the heading but the individual codes only mention F11. Can I use this for F12beta x86_64? It has taken several goes to get F12 installed and re-bootable and any attempt to change the graphics settings result in it throwing a wobbly and not re-booting.

Post #4 should work with F12 , add nouveau.modeset=0 to grub.conf and run nvidia-xconfig to generate a xorg.conf before rebooting.

Hi there,

I've just upgraded to leigh's 190.36 and the old much dreaded black windows bug reappeared. Anyone experiencing this ?
I'm on F11/kde 4.3, kwin compositing not compiz, Twinview 2944x1200, geForce 6600.

Try adding vmalloc=256m to the boot line in /boot/grub/grub.conf and reboot.
