I am assuming that this is a new clean install of fedora 17 ?
And not a upgrade using "preupgrade" or the dvd .


and you are installing the "akmod-nvidia" from yum ?
Code:
su -
yum install akmod-nvidia

This is not a new clean install of fedora 17. It is an upgrade.

I ran my daily "sudo yum update"
and the nvidia and the kernel both arrived at the same time.

I did not separately run "yum install akmod-nvidia"

I put a transcript of that yum session on a prior thread.

This is the third f17 kernel that I received and the akmod-nvidia for the other two processed correctly.(3.6.11-1.fc17.i686 3.6.11-5.fc17.i686 3.7.3-101.fc17.i686

After doing quite a bit of research I decided to issue the command myself - the command that had failed when I did yum update - and study exactly what went wrong

so I typed
Quote:

sudo yum install kmod-nvidia-3.7.3-101.fc17.i686

and it responded

Loaded plugins: auto-update-debuginfo, presto, refresh-packagekit
--- snip ---
Installed:
kmod-nvidia-3.7.3-101.fc17.i686.i686 1:304.64-2.fc17.1

Complete!
Go Figure - and I'm up and running on my latest version of f17

But in fact I learned a lot from this exercise and I want to thank you for the education

Dick
