why is screen resulotion doesn't changed?
 
Hi
recently I have installed the nvidia driver in fedora 8 through livna repositories. But after rebooting I see that My screen resolution has changed and now it is 640x480. I thought that I 'd changed it in the hardware-> resolution menu but it didn't work. I was amazed to see that there are only a single resolution option. Then I go to administrator->display, but here also I can't changed the resolution. I am helpless now i tried to open the nvidia display configuration but It was as usual nothing has changed. I restarted so many times but It didn't work.

Is there any solution to this? Every movie is partially displayed in my monitor. I have to moving around with my mouse to have a full access of my window.

Can you help me please?

if you run the command
Code:

rpm -qa *nvidia-*
what are the results?
Also what Nvidia card are you using?
It sounds like you have the wrong drivers installed. :tisk: Please post the answers to the questions I asked.

I ran those command and it displayed

[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa *nvidia-*
kmod-nvidia-2.6.26.6-49.fc8-173.14.12-5.fc8.2
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-173.14.12-2.fc8
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -q kernel
kernel-2.6.23.1-42.fc8
kernel-2.6.26.6-49.fc8
[root@localhost ~]#

I have nvidia 8600Gt graphics card and other configurations are:

intel core 2 duo 2.13 Gh processor
intel D946 mother board
and that graphics card. Now it has become impossible to log in as every single icon single page is much bigger than as usual.
What should I do?

Ok not wrong drivers missing ones.
rpm -qa *nvidia*
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-173.14.12-2.fc8
kmod-nvidia-2.6.26.6-49.fc8-173.14.12-5.fc8.2
kmod-nvidia-2.6.26.5-28.fc8-173.14.12-5.fc8.1
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-173.14.12-2.fc8
nvidia-kmod-debuginfo-173.14.12-4.lvn8.1
kmod-nvidia-173.14.12-5.fc8.2

It looks like you need to download the livna repo from livna.org/fedora8 and try going here: http://rpm.livna.org/rlowiki/
and clicking on the Fedora 8 repository RPM link and run the command: yum install rpmfusion-free-release rpmfusion-nonfree-release also. See if that gives you decent screen resolution.
Please post the results.
