I very recently installed Fedora 17 x64 on my laptop, after getting used to gnome and updating the software and playing around with it a little I attempted to download the nVidia drivers for my card.
After following this thread http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=280750
I was unable to boot into the gnome login screen, instead I was greeted by a long list ending at [ OK ] Started Display Manager.
I can still access the Ctrl + Alt + F2-F6 in order to use shell commands, but I don't know how to go about fixing the issue.
According to a few google searches akmod is supposed to be reliable, and my card is supported.
Here's the result of lspci |grep vga:
00:12.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C67 [GeForce 7000M / nForce 610MJ (rev a2)
and the result of rpm -qa *\nvidia\* *\kernel\*|sort;uname -r;lsmod |grep -e nvidia -e nouveau;cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
nvidia 1124448 0
i2c_core 38177 3 nvidia,i2c_nforce2,videodev
If anyone can offer help with this that'd be great.
