Unhappy Video drivers not working in new kernel...

Hello

I just updated Fedora 11. Kernel got updated to 2.6.30.8-64.fc11.i686.PAE. But during boot it says that nvidia drivers couldn't be enabled. It works perfectly well in the lower kernel versions. Am I the only one facing the problem? I've nVidia Corporation C51 [Geforce 6150 Go] (rev a2) in my laptop.

Thanks.

HOW did you install the nvidia driver ?
Did you use "yum install kmod-nvidia " or did you use Nvidia's .run driver ( from the nvidia web site )

John, I didn't install any drivers for it. I got it through yum update. My laptop's motherboard got damaged after I last booted in that kernel and worked on it for few minutes. I am not sure if it really happened due to that kernel. But laptop was all fine till I worked on that kernel.

Now I'm waiting for HP guys to give me a huge bill for new motherboard.

for every kernel update the nvidia driver needs to be reinstalled .
if you use the kmod-nvidia.rpm then is should update along with the kernel.
If you use the nvidia.run driver it needs to be reinstalled for EVERY kernel update.

Often the kmod is delayed and follows the kernel by a few hours / days.

You can avoid having to reinstall every time by using the akmod or dkms driver, see the nvidia thread in my signature.
