Fedora 17 and the nvidia geforce display driver

Posted 07-13-2012 at 05:27 PM by subvertigo

This is how I installed the nvidia driver in Fedora 17 for 64 bit x86 without using a 3rd party repository. My experience will not work with all configurations.

1. Download a compatible 64 bit x86 display driver from http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_a...y_archive.html (32 bit x86 display drivers are at http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_archive.html)

2. Install the kernel-devel and gcc packages.

3. Create the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf...

How to survive to OpenSuse 11.3 upgrade on PCs with NVIDIA Video Cards [ANNOUNCEMENT]

Introduction

In my opinion OpenSuse is one of the best GNU/Linux distribution... It is stable, it has maniac precision for the particulars, "branded" desktop... so you are REALLY productive since the first login and It's cool!

Another invaluable feature is th "YAST2 tool", a very fast, smart and useful control panel for services and system.

Anyway, I use this OS in my production PCs... OpenSuse never disappointed me!

Slackware64 nvidia-driver-compat32

EDIT: I added a new script for 195.36.24 as well as a script to compile libvdpau-compat32 on a 64 bit system. I never hear any feedback on this stuff... is it working for other people? Do I have errors anywhere?


ORIGINAL POST:
I'm one of those people that personally don't like installing things on my system without having proper packages made for tracking the files. As such I edited the scripts on SlackBuilds.org for an additional package to support this.
