Fedora 17 and the nvidia geforce display driver

Posted 07-13-2012 at 05:27 PM by subvertigo

This is how I installed the nvidia driver in Fedora 17 for 64 bit x86 without using a 3rd party repository. My experience will not work with all configurations.

Though the GUI looked so gr8 with oh-is-this-really-linux kinda transitions, I felt a lil hard to figure out how to configure static IP for my WiFi adapter. Well. Perhaps FC15/G3 could
