FC5 + updated kernel + nvidia


Hi all!

Have installed fedora core 5 dvd 32bit. Updated to latest kernel. Trying to install nvidiadrivers in rpm-format from livna.org

[root@fc5-linux-celeron nvidia_drivers]# rpm -ivh kmod-nvidia-1.0.8756-3.2.6.16_1.2111_FC5.i686.rpm \ xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-1.0.8756-3.lvn5.i386.rpm
warning: kmod-nvidia-1.0.8756-3.2.6.16_1.2111_FC5.i686.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID a109b1ec
error: Failed dependencies:
selinux-policy < 2.2.29-2.fc5 conflicts with xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-1.0.8756-3.lvn5.i386


What do I need to do to get it work?

[root@fc5-linux-celeron nvidia_drivers]# uname -a
Linux fc5-linux-celeron 2.6.16-1.2111_FC5 #1 Thu May 4 21:16:58 EDT 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Try to manually install the driver.
Download it on nvidia.com, then launch it as root as this:
sh Name-of-the-driver.sh

Well, either u can disable SELinux Policy if you don't need it and then try your rpm or better why don't you install directly from the repo using yum. I prefer the yum option.

SELinux is disabled.. And I did not use the nvidia.com driver because I thought that would not work, but I will try that soon!

Did not use yum because I want to manually install so I can burn files to a cd and use it on a pc without the internet connection.. & I want to have "control" over the install so that I know it is possible to do the same installmethod / procedure on an another pc..

me too have some problem with nvidia and fc5
i'm trying to build a custom kernel from the vanilla source and i did .

get the nvidia driver from nvidia.com not from livna.org rpms because those rpms works only with the original or updated kernels of fedora , not vanilla

compiled the nvidia driver as well with no problems, but after rebooting i cannt start x

the output of dmesg complains about the absence of nvidia kernel module and glx module

and if i install it from livna rpms , at the startup it tells me that it cannot find the correct module for my custom kernel , so it disables the glx part and uses the nv driver not nvidia

am i missing something here

please help

try this, if it doesn't work, you may as well as have to compile a new kernel that supports fglrx.

Code:
# setsebool -P allow_execstack=1
# setsebool -P allow_execmod=1
reboot after these two.

Fglrx is for ATI cards...

Nvidia

What a sad issue concerning Nvidia and FC 5. After searching for a solution to my TNT2 card, of which only legacy is available (downgrading kernel), Went and brought myself a geForce4.
Problem went away and should stay away until FC 15...

Sound advice for you if your heading towards livna legacy site.

Now I have installed nvidia drivers from livna on different kernels in fc5 and both i386 & x86_64.

It works everytime now, starting to get a hold of it!

Only needs to install the dependencies..

(the newest versions)
libsemanage
libsepol
policycoreutils
selinux-policy-2.xxx
selinux-policy-targeted-2.xxx

rpm -ivh -U libsemanage
libsepol
policycoreutils
rpm -e selinux-policy-targeted
rpm -ivh -U selinux-policy-2.xxx
rpm -ivh selinux-policy-targeted-2.xxx

then install from rpm.livna.org
rpm -ivh kmod-nvidia-xxxxx / xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-xxxxx

restart and I have nvidiadrivers working!!

have not tried ati yet, but it looks like that is just as simple as this..

hey, do you mean the livna rpms worked for customized kernel
not the official one ?
if so , that would be great

Hi im trying to duplicate what you did because I already disabled selinux and still get the selinux-policy < 2.2.29-2.fc5 conflicts error and the drivers from nvidia.com simply dont work. However, I ran into problem with libsepol \. It seems there is a dependency conflict with an older version of libsepol. I tried rpm -q libsepol to know what exactly to remove but it says there are multpile packages? how do I remove multiple packages when they are the same?????
