    Nvidia guide for F13 Development.

    This is a Three-Step Process. If you don't follow all three steps, your install will fail!



    1. Install the nvidia driver. ( if you have 4Gb of RAM or more you will probably have a PAE kernel [32bit only] so follow the PAE part )

    For GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9 & 200 series cards

    Code:
    su
    rpm -Uvh  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
    yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686
    If you use a PAE kernel

    Code:
    su
    rpm -Uvh  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
    yum  install kmod-nvidia-PAE
    Or (akmod builds the required kmod on bootup )

    Code:
    su
    rpm -Uvh  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
    yum install akmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686


    2. Edit grub.conf ( if you omit this step the driver will fail to work )


    this command adds rdblacklist=nouveau option to /boot/grub/grub.conf

    Code:
    su -
    sed -i '/root=/s|$| rdblacklist=nouveau|' /boot/grub/grub.conf
    mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname  -r)-nouveau.img
    dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
    3. Reboot

    No need, just run yum update

    i.e

    Code:
    yum --nogpgcheck update /path/to/rpms

    Hi Leigh
    Thank that work...
    I have just a question:
    I am on x64, but for wine I need xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-195.36.03-1.i686
    And I don't remember how install (or built...) on my x64...

    ---------- Post added at 07:56 AM CST ---------- Previous post was at 07:17 AM CST ----------

    I found the solution;
    Code:
    rpmbuild -ba xorg-x11-drv-nvidia.spec --define "kernels $(uname -r)" --target i686

    You could use

    Code:
    rpmbuild -ba xorg-x11-drv-nvidia.spec --target i686
