    FC14 upgrade breaks X, nouveau/nvidia issue?

    Dear All.

    My system with kernel-2.6.35.10-74.fc14.x86_64, NVIDIA 3800 + Samsung 2233 and 3Dvision kit works fine, but upon upgrading to kernel-2.6.35.13-92.fc14.x86_64 the system won't go past the blue->white bar along the screen. The modprobe.d directory has the file blacklisting nouveau and there is the grub entry rdblacklist=nouveau, but do I need to re-run the nvidia installer. If so I think I need to reset the init level to stop X11 trying to load. Advice how to do this or if there is some other problem, any advice is greatly appreciated - and will I need to keep doing this everytime I upgrade the kernel if I have nvidia drivers installed?

    Thanks, Richard

    Re: FC14 upgrade breaks X, nouveau/nvidia issue?

    yes, you will have to build the nvidia kernel module EVERY time you update your kernel.

    The easiest way is to use the akmod package from rpmfusion to install the nvidia drivers, then it will automatically build the kernel module for you whenever you do a kernel update.

    You can follow leigh's guide on installing the nvidia drivers here:

    http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=204752

    If you installed using the drivers downloaded from the nvidia site, then you can re-install them, or remove it and install according to the guide using the akmod or kmod packages.


    To get to a point where you can re-install the nvidia driver... when it hangs upon boot.. You can try hitting Ctrl+Alt+F2 and see if that gets you to a console screen where you can sign in.

    I downloaded the latest NVIDIA installer, hit Ctrl-Alt F2 on reboot and ran it as root. After completion I rebooted and X is back up and running including stereo support. Thanks a lot!
