Hey Jan,

first of all I suggest you to boot on your new kernel.
After that, using Synaptic or something else assure you that you completely remove all tracks of NVIDIA previously installled rpm.
To ways for doing that :
1. by the command line : rpm -e nvidia_package_name.rpm
you can get a list of yet installed packages by rpm -qa |grep NVIDIA
2. if the uninsttallation doesn't seem to work (was my case) try to remove them via the command rpm -e --force nvidia_package_name.rpm (I have to admit I'm not sure about the parameter --force)
3. Synaptic is a perfect gui tool for that

After that step, you'll only have to restart the whole procedure I posted but now under your new kernel. Should work very fine.

Have fun !

Thanks Membrax!
Would my old version still be bootable if I did that? Or is there a "point of no return"?

I'd say this will be a point of no return.
But I'm not a Guru, so, accord me the doubt of being mistaken.

I'll wait doing that until I have ample time then :-)
And in my book you are a Guru, like it or not...

Have fun !

nvidia: Can't find an IRQ for your NVIDIA card!
nvidia: Please check your BIOS settings.
nvidia: [Plug & Play OS ] should be set to NO
nvidia: [Assign IRQ to VGA] should be set to YES

I checked my bios, and assigned these new values and wahey we have Opengl!
So.... If anyone else has similar problems, try that!!

I want to try this, but I don't seem to have any options in my BIOS for this.
I have an A7N8X mboard and Phoenix BIOS.

Hope someone has more of an idea than I do, it's been days now trying to get it to work!!
