Hi all,
I'm at a loss with the latest NVIDIA drivers (seems to be the cosensus around here). I searched the forums but couldnt find anyone with a similar problem as me. I installed the drivers per NVIDIAS website and modified my Xorg.conf file. for some reason, any screen resolution greater then 600x480 causes my computer to reboot. After the reboot, I checked my Xorg log file but couldnt find any errors. Has anyone else experienced reboots?

I had some problems with installing the drivers a while ago and I found the nvidia grafic installation section in the MythTV HOWTO realy helpfull ( )

You need to set up some yum repositorys in order to install the prebuilt Nvidia kernel module.
