Smile How to install NVDIA QUADRO NVS 110m on Red hat Enterprise Linux 6 beta


Hi I am a newbie with Linux and I am eager to learn it .
I installed RHEL6 beta on My Dell D620 and everything seems to be fine except the Video Driver. I installed the Desktop and the Video card of my laptop is NVIDIA QUADRO NVS110M with the max resolution 1440x900. The max resolution I have now is 1024x768.I want to install the NVDIA driver,I already downloaded the RPMS from http://www.atrpms.net/ website but I am afraid it won't work because of dependencies..if I try to use the hard way by using rpm -Uhv.
Is there any other way for example using YUM or other ways.If I use YUM what command I have to type.

RHEL is a commercial distribution. You have to install the drivers using yum from your RHN account. But I don't know if RHN will supply a binary for the proprietary nvidia driver. Further, you have chosen an alpha release, which is not expected to be stable anyway.

You should realise that RHEL is not intended as a personal distro - it is aimed at commercial environments where stability trumps features. The alpha release is not intended for production environments. We would usually suggest CentOS or fedora to people who want a redhat-style personal workstation.

You want to increase the screen resolution, and you hope that the proprietary nvidia driver will help with this. It is probably possible to fix the resolution with the existing driver, but the proprietary one will also supply HW 3D acceleration.

To use yum, you have to enable the repository and enter:

yum install kmod-nvidia

... and iirc we normally suggest rpm-fusion as a repo.
rpm packages are usually very specific to your distro, version and kernel. If they don't match there can be trouble.

If you are really desperate, you can get the .run file off nvidia.

keep in mind that for some/most ( heavy openGL users/builders) that when using the nvidia.run driver you need to reinstall ALL of mesa
mesa-libGL
mesa-libGL-devel
mesa-source
mesa-libGLw
mesa-libGLU
mesa-libOSMesa
mesa-libGLU-devel
mesa-libOSMesa-devel
mesa-libGLw-devel


also inorder to build the nvidia.run driver you NEED- a must- is gcc and the kernel-devel
Code:
yum groupinstall "Development Tools" "Development Librarys" kernel-devel
and for that you need a red hat license

You've just been told how to install the driver - you enable the repo and use yum. What is the problem?

What is the secret?

Robert, Did you ever get your Nvidia drivers to work on Redhat 6?


I'm having similar trouble:

If so, what is the secret?

Thanks!
