does nvidia Geforce gtx 280 work on feodra 9?
does nvidia Geforce gtx 280 work on feodra 9? how can i install the driver for these? if theres any driver for the 280
GeForce GTX 280 support has been added since version 177.13:
To get the latest drivers (BETA 177.76), though, use the following links:
I'm using Fedora 9, though not the same GPU, and these drivers work pretty well.
do not install the nvidia.run blob install use the livna repo and yum to install the driver
but use " su - " and not sudo ( that is unless you already have sudo configured and setup)
I am running into problems with Fedora 9 and the GTX 280. I prefer to install everything through yum.
olracdor - Did you get it working?
John VV - Is 177.+ in the Livna repo?
the kmod for kernel 126.96.36.199-45
so YES they are in the yum repos
PS. If you have already installed the *.run package at some point .THEN YOU MUST run
before installing the kmod-nvidia
You misunderstood. The original poster needs version 177.13 or higher nvidia drivers, because anything before 177.13 does not support the GTX 280 card. Version 177+ is not in any of the well known repos for Fedora 9. So if you are using Fedora 9 or older you can not use the nvidia driver in the repos. You can use the binary driver nvidia provides on their website but due to conflicts with other software it is not recommended. I have found a work around, although I have not thoroughly tested. I was able to create a newer rpm of the nvidia-x11-drv package, thanks to some help within the Fedora community.
yeah! i got it working! but i used the driver from the nvdia website. i downloaded the latest kernel and installed the driver and its working fine now. THANKS guys!
