Sorry if some of you ppl say that I should search the web or this forum but I did and it's really hard to find a working solution to my problem. I'm not saying that I looked everywhere but I did search for similar problems and some were same like mine, but nothing worked.
I'm a new user to Fedora, new user to Linux in general. Did try before some other distributions like Ubuntu but I had similar problem. Please help because I really want to use Fedora but things like this totally ruin my will.
My resolution is at max. 800x600 pixels. Before when I used Windows I had resolution of not just 1024x768 but even around 1200x???
I'm thinking I have to update my GPU drivers. OK! The name of my graphic card is this:
ON THE BOX: ASUS X Series V9400 128MB (it's an old graphic card and pc in general)
But when I had Windows I used nVIDIAs drivers. On the box it says
Powered by NVIDIA MX 4000 GPU
NVIDIA nfiniteFX II Engine
Accuview Antialiasing Subsystem
nView multi-display technology
NVIDIA Lightspeed Memory Architecture (LMA) II
AGP 8X support with bandwidth of 2.1 GB/sec
Full connectivity: DVI / TV-out / VGA"
So, I used nVIDIAs drivers which came with GPU in the box and also downloaded some from nVIDIA soem time later. It all worked fine. But now on Fedora the resolution is 800x600 which is giving me a lot of problems. My old man needs to get a couple of games of chess at chesscube.com and because the resolution is low the table can't be seen good. If you won't help me for my sake, do it for my dad, will you?
I've tried with that yum. As I can see there are some "repositories" which contain those drivers.
But when I type to download(or search?) from those repositories it says that there aren't those files in repositories. kmod and akmod tried. Doesn't work. Please if you know how to fix this tell me.
I heard that the nvidia drivers aren't avaible in Fedora 10. Is this true?
I searched for old drivers for nvidias gpu's.
This is (I think) driver for my gpu:
How do I install it? I lso read somewhere that installing it like this may corrupt something. That I should search in the repositories. HELP!!!!
