I am trying to install the right nvidia driver for my card but when i go to install it it comes up with a message like no pre compiled kernel and something to do with xen not supporting the kernel
i will attach my xorg.conf file note on the selection device there is no card type

this problem i think is effecting maya to freeze as soon as i create a cube and as i need maya for work it would be great if anyone out there could help out thanks

You need this driver: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.29.pkg1.run (32Bit) or NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.29-pkg2.run (64Bit)

Sounds like you are using xen with the wrong kernel, which you don't need unles you are running virtualization.

When you get this message : " no precompiled kernel ", that means that there is no matching kernel source or headers to build a module against.

You need to install the matching kernel headers for the kernel that you are using, to be able to install the nvidia driver.

Open a terminal and " uname -rm " (no quotes) to see which kernel you have, then install the matching kernel headers.

You can try my method for installing the nvidia driver here :

Ok then you will need the 64 bit driver instead: NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.29-pkg2.run

From here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_amd64_180.29.html

And you'll need to install the matching kernel headers.

When you installed that driver, did it ask you if you would like your xorg.conf updated ?
If it did, you should have let it update the xorg.conf then reboot the computer.

If installed properly the Nvidia logo will display during startup.

Check to see if Nvidia x server setting application was installed.
You can use that to adjust the settings.

just wondering WHY you are using the nvidia.run installer and not the akmod-nvidia from the repos ?
i use it ( see sig ) because it is version 11 , not the 7 that is in the repo

I was running F10 earlier (switched back to F8 because I like kde 3.5.9); I have an Nvidia 8500 GT and I used the Nvidia driver with Fedora 10 and it asked me that, and I let it modify my xserver settings, then when I would reboot, the Nvidia logo would flash and everything worked as it should.

Try going into display settings, then go to hardware and make sure you have this selected :
nvidia - Vendor-supplied driver for nvidia cards .

If not, select:" nvidia - Vendor-supplied driver for nvidia cards" and reboot.
