View Full Version : kmod-nvidia

1st January 2009, 02:59 PM
I received an update notice yesterday evening and this is the message I get when trying to update. I have usually always been fine with akmod and kmod installed. Anybody have any ideas on the best way to finish update?

Thanks in advance.

I believe that when one gets an error of that sort that you just need to wait a day or two, or maybe later on today for things to sync up. The kmods aren't ready for the kernel version you have?

I'm sure you're right. I'll work on a little patience in the new year.

I could be right. I wouldn't bet my life on it though.:rolleyes: I've seen errors like this in the past, going back through previous Fedora versions also. Just means kmod and / or akmod isn't ready for the new kernel. Waiting has worked for me in the past.

That's a bug in the older akmods (there's since been an update that fixes future akmods) - try removing the installed kmod and replacing it with the one from Yum. If you apply any updates to "akmods" and "kmodtool", this shouldn't happen in the future.

I've removed akmod and kmod both, rebooted, reinstalled and still getting errors.

I finally realized that akmod was downloading i686 kernel in addition to the kernel i686 PAE which was causing conflict. I removed akmod and the i686 and updated with just kmod-nvidia PAE, all is working well. :)
