I just did install FC11 with a Nvidia GeForce GT 220 which has not been recognized, so I had to install it with 'xdriver=vesa". I tried later on to configure it with system-config-display. Error message :

[root@rudolf boot]# system-config-display
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xconf.py", line 376, in <module>
dialog = xConfigDialog.XConfigDialog(hardware_state, xconfig, rhpxl.videocard.VideoCardInfo())
File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 641, in __init__
if len(self.xconfig.layout[0].adjacencies) > 1:
IndexError: index out-of-bounds

Here my /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "vesa"

Questions. How to get system-config-display to work and where to get the nvidia drivers for the GT 220 card ?

Thanks for help

Hello curano

Here's a link to a guode for installing nvidia drivers.


I've just found exactly the same problem you did with system-config-display. I guess it's a matter of waiting for it to be fixed.

As X11 is mainly self configuring now, you will probably find that you don't need it once you have installed the drivers.
