Fedora 16: after I updated some Nvidia files, Fedora stopped working

First, my problem was described in this link


The problem was solved, at least to work with the old kernel 3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64 and it was working ok. But today I updated the system because it told me there were some files to be updated, these are the files:

xorg-x11-drv-nvidia -libs

Now neither the old kernel nor the new one works. Fedora is stuck!!

This means I will always have problems when updating the system? Come on !!!

I hope somebody can help me... Thanks in advanced for your help

solved !!! at least for a while

I did this according Nvidia's installation instructions (from the recovery mode):

PROBLEM: I just upgraded my kernel, and now the NVIDIA kernel module will not load.

ANSWER: The kernel interface layer of the NVIDIA kernel module must be compiled specifically for the configuration and version of your kernel. If you upgrade your kernel, then the simplest solution is to reinstall the driver.

ADVANCED: You can install the NVIDIA kernel module for a non running kernel (for example: in the situation where you just built and installed a new kernel, but have not rebooted yet) with a command line such as this:

# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-285.05.09.run --kernel-name='KERNEL_NAME'
Where 'KERNEL_NAME' is what uname -r would report if the target kernel were running, and NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-285.05.09.run is the name of the driver you have downloaded (change it if you have a different one)

I did the last command with the new kernel: # sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-285.05.09.run --kernel-name=3.1.1-1.fc.x86_64

and now I can use the new kernel !!! Maybe someone could help this information. If something wrong happens, I'll be back.

OBS: I did # sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-285.05.09.run for the old kernel and it now works too.

So.. for this moment.. it's solved.
