HOWTO: Install the proprietary nVidia graphics driver in Fedora 13, 14


A new la entry has been added:

HOWTO: Install the proprietary nVidia graphics driver in Fedora 13, 14

Quote:
The Fedora development team has assumed a stance in opposition to the authentic nVidia drivers, in favor of the 2D-only nouveau driver for nVidia cards. Nouveau has to get a lot better, and it will. Suffice to say that it is tricky to get the nVidia.com drivers to install in F13 and F14. Here is how to do it:

Open a terminal program such as "gnome-terminal".

Nouveau is NOT 2D only.
I'm running nouveau right now on F14 and have full compiz capability.
You can easily install it from the Add/Remove software screen, or use yum

Code:
yum install xorg-x11-drv-nouveau
