ok, guys - last question - I think I edited the file correctly according to the Nvidia "read me" file. How do I know the installation was sucessful??? :retard:

I just go into etc/X11/xorg.conf and ...

driver 'nv' changed to "nvidia'
made sure I had 'glx'
removed Load 'dri'

Rebooted and ran glxgears...

here are the results

okay, i'm having a similar problem
i'm having a similar problem with the Nvidia installs on FC2

this is my results when tyring to install the new kernel.. i'm now without windows for the time.. and i'm using linux as my only OS.. so i've never needed the Gfx drivers before, as linux has only been my server os.. but i would like any advice you can provide, thanks

[darklordzim@blackwidow darklordzim]$ rpm -ivh --force kernel-2.6.6-1.427.8kstacks.i686.rpm
warning: kernel-2.6.6-1.427.8kstacks.i686.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 5dfbf7dc
error: can't create transaction lock

lupin_the_3rd 06-22-2004 10:06 PM

try it as root

darklordzim 06-23-2004 11:12 AM

omg, i feel stupid.. i forgot to su.. okay i got the kernel installed.. now i modifiy my inittab to boot to text mode, install the nvidia driver, modify my xorg.conf file, and change inittab back right?

lupin_the_3rd 06-23-2004 01:37 PM

as root

#telinit 3

install nvidia


then as user,


Next boot will boot up into 5... though your way will work also...

darklordzim 06-23-2004 02:22 PM

okay, i noticed a problem now, i've rebooted, the grafix drivers work great, i even have my dual monitors configured.. however.. when i installed the new kernel now i dont get any network... i cant connect at all.. :( anyone else had this problem, if i need to i can post this in another forum, but i also think its important for ppl to know that it might happen to them.. and how to fix it.. thanx

i'll check for a reply when i'm back from mowing the lawn an hour or so

Now for some reason ut2004 will no longer run?
I see the logo for the screen but then disapears and in command prompt I get a display error.

I also cant run glxgears...

here is th error


[carlwill@localhost carlwill]$ glxgears
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual


darklordzim 06-24-2004 06:38 AM

check this
in your xorg.conf file make sure you still have the line

load "glx"

if you dont .. add it with all the other load lines, and make sure you comment out this line

load "dri"

hope that helps a little

just a quick comment
replacing the kernel somehow screwed up my nforce drivers, when i changed nic's and disabled the onboard one, everything worked fine.. so i dont know what else to make of it.. just something to keep in mind for those of u with an Nforce board, and changing the kernel for your nvidia gfx card.
