nvidia driver install messed up my ipforwarding


when i installed the latest Nvidia Linux video driver, it told me it was updating the kernal for whatever purpose..

once i got back to running Fedora normally aside from the annoying nvidia splash screens (you can get rid of those right?) everything seemed fine. but once i swtched over to my winxp machine the internet didn't work.. i tried resetting my iptable rules but an error with 'iptables nat' (i forget the exact file name) and my kernel/iptables possible needs to be updated.

the file path for where it thinks this 'iptables nat' is.. is indeed where it is.. so i'm kinda confused.

i actually can't get the problem to repeat now (go figure).. but winxp still can't get on the internet regardless.

man.. who ever said linux doesn't need a few proper restarts to get things going is a liar..

got it going.. although linux has been branded with Nvidia propoganda.. i'd really like to get rid of that somehow.

You may want to look into a few of the options that you can pass to the driver namely the NoLogo one.
Code:
       Identifier  "Card0"
        Driver      "nvidia"
        Option      "NoLogo" "on"
        Option      "NvAgp"  "1"
        Option      "RenderAccel" "On"
        Option      "IgnoreEDID"  "on"
        Option      "IgnoreDisplayDevices"  "DFP, TV"
        Option      "NoBandWidthTest" "1"

        VendorName  "nVidia Corporation"
        BoardName   "NV17 [GeForce4 MX 440-SE]"
        BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
BTW it would be your XP install that is screwing up the hardware not linux it seems to like re-writing the firmware on the net card.

You put the Option "NoLogo" "on" directly under the place in the file where you edited to change the "nv" to "nvidia" then you can restart the X server or next time you start it the logo will not be displayed. I'll still go with windows as well linux will not start changing the MAC address on you unless you go out of your way to change the settings.
