FC2-test 1, what about Nvidia?


I have just installed FC2 and it's fast as a rocket

I don't want to mess things up by adding "risky" packages or one that I'm sure will work OK.

The Nvidia drivers (at http://www.sh.nu/download/nvidia/2.6) have always worked for me, but as I am aware of that Fedora/Red Hat has it's own way of doing things (export GCC) I'm not that interested in install them and cross my fingers

Is it the same procedure with FC2 regarding Nvidia as it was with FC1?

I would imagine it would be very straight forward. I use FC1 and a 2.6.2 kernel. When I installed the NVIDIA driver it was a clean install. Maybe you could check to see if FC2 and FC1 use the same version of gcc. If they use the same then I would guess that it will be a clean install.
