    hi ,everyone ,I got a problem seemingly related to this one .
    when I start my fedora(2.6.26.3) ,the screen displays :EC strom GPE detected , EC GPE disabled . and then it shows module nvidia.ko not found and several warnings followed . but it still allows me to login , after logged in ,the screen is totally white ,no text ,no pics. reboot and go into fedora(2.6.25.14)and this one works fine. recently I installed crystalspace mentioned over here "http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/showthread.php?t=193564&highlight=crystal+space" ,

    Nonsense. Nvidia provide their own installer, which works. See automatic script.

    True: I overlooked the possibility of using the basic NVidia-supplied binary installer instead of the other options mentioned.

    However, the primary point remains: the kernel-devel and kernel-headers packages are needed to generate the new kmods, regardless of which option is used to install the driver.

    In addition, I would note that for most users, the RPMs are the "officially" preferred method of installation and update, rather than the binary installer and/or a custom script(s) to generate the kmods (See: http://www.fedoraforum.org/?view=guide & note: "Do things the Fedora-way").

    This worked fine for me. The only quirk is a second reboot needed because the module detection happens earlier in the boot process that the rebuild.

    I like it!

    Fedora 8 2.6.26 nvidia kmod, when?

    Apparently I'm not alone in this boat, and there seems to be a lack of the nvidia kernel module for the 2.6.26 kernel in Fedora 8. I have tried several times to 'update' the kmod to no avail, the 2.6.26 kmod is nowhere to be found. I also tried installing akmod (to automatically build and load the kernel module when a new kernel is present in the system) to no avail, not even enabling livna-testing, so... Where's the 2.6.26 nvidia kmod?
    If ain't broken, don't fix it! :eek:
    If can be improved, go for it! :cool:

    you can always use "depmod -a" to avoid the second reboot
    Sometimes there are just something you cant explain

    Hello Thetargos

    I've just done the "akmod" version of the nvidia driver for the new 26 kernel about half an hour ago so I know it works here.

    It does take several dependencies though.

    If your card is supported it should work for you. What error messages do you get?

    I also gave up waiting for kmods and installed the akmod. Perhaps livna is dropping kmod in favor of akmod then?

    Hello jdeslip

    I wouldn't be surprised, think of the recompiling it will save them if they didn't have to do all the individual kernel mods.

    Nvidia, ndiswrapper, madwifi and so on.

    You forgot to mention that this only works on Fedora 9, where akmod-nvidia is available, for F8 users, there is no option but to go with Freshrpms' package.

    yes, akmod-nvidia works fine. After first reboot the driver will be installed properly.
