Fedora Core Installation Hangs with Nvdia Geforce Fx 5200 Graphics Card

Posted 07-14-2006 at 08:21 AM by sudipkumarsaha

My specs are following:
A 845GL chipset based board with onboard graphics and 4x ultra AGP slot
Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 graphics card
2.4 Ghz Intel P4 presscott processor
40GB HDD, 1 CDRW and 1 DVD-Rom Drive
Onboard Sound
Onboard Sis 100/10 fast Ethernet controller
17 inch CRT Monitor
20GB for windows Xp and 20GB for Linux

I have previously installed FC3,4 and 5 with the onboard Graphics and it worked like a dream. After adding the the Nvidia 5200 graphics card Every time I go to install Fedora Core 3,4 or 5 and press the enter button at the boot prompt after loading some modules when it gets to the part called
"<6> USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver v2.2"
it will hangs up there. I have tried these commands linux ide=nodma, linux pci=off, linux allow=cddma, linux text, linux nofb, linux acpi=off, linux expert, linux ddc, linux nohit and nothing worked. But whenever I
type linux noprobe or linux agp=off at the boot prompt the installation worked and completed without any problem. After when I tries to boot into Fedora it shows
initializing storage_network_audio and gets to the part
"audio<3>hw_random: RNG not detected"
and hangs up there. I have tried to boot into other run levels but nothing seems to be working. Please Help.

    try this website for installing Nvidia drivers

    This will work for both 32 and 64 bit.

    Good Luck
