nVidia 7025/7050 GPU and nv driver
I have nVidia's 7025 GPU integrated on my mobo and the nv driver doesn't work with it. :( Using Fedora 7 so guess my is fairly recent too.

Anyone else with these chipsets (they differ only in HDMI vs. DVI-D port I believe) have any luck with a driver other than VESA?

I'm stuck at 800x600 res. :cry:

Nvidia hasn't released a driver for it yet (the beta doesn't even support it yet). I would try installing the beta anyway and see what it does. You might at least get a higher resolution...

Was worth a try... I got the black screen of death. :o Had to ctrl-alt-del to restart cleanly.

For anyone else with Fedora who falls into same predicament: after rebooting hit "a" button at grub prompt and append "single" (no quotes) to the line that appears and then hit enter. Once you're at the # prompt type:
chkconfig nvidia off

You might also have to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to use VESA driver if you compiled yourself, but with Livna's binary I didn't have to. Just did a "yum remove kmod-nvidia" and the mess was cleaned up for me. ;)

Actually came out the 21st of last month, but FYI support for this chipset has finally been added.

Thanks again to Phoronix for the excellent info!
