I'm running Fedora Core 10 on the following configuration
Intel Core i7 920 CPU
3 GB DDR3 1333 MHz RAM
Palit GTX 295 graphics card (one)
HP 2309m LCD screen
I've installed the "latest" drivers from nVidia's website:
i.e. "NVIDIA Driver for Linux (Fedora 10) 185.18.08 Beta"
Everything seems to be working okay, but when I drag a link (just for the heck of it) or some text in Firefox, the whole screen flickers with movement of the mouse until the mouse button is released. I haven't been able to figure out why this is happening. If someone has an idea, please let me know. Screen flicker is quite irritating :P
Also, I don't see the nvidia splash screen when X starts. I didn't use kmod-nvidia to install the drivers because that didn't work for some reason the first time. (Should I use kmod-nvidia as well?). Is this normal?
PS -- SELinux is disabled.
