I am re-posting this because I was told that this needed to go to fedora-list and not fedora-test-list... Ok here it is.. Annndd I have been informed that livna-testing has the rpms in there repository. I was not aware of that and spent the better half of today trying to get the nvidia acript to work... I did search for this solution but nothing came up for ivna beta nvidia drivers ... So I came up with the solution below. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have FC6 installed with the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9626-pkg1.run and what a beautiful desktop. Download from ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-9626/ the drivers from here. To get it to work I drop to runlevel 3 sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9626-pkg1.run just to launch the script. <alt+f2> and login as root cd /tmp/selfgzXXXX/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9626-pkg1/usr/src/nv comment out config.h in nv-linux.h save and exit Switch back to script <alt+f1> Continue with the script. Reboot. Yes... I know FC6 is not released until tomorrow.
FYI, what you wrote above has been posted on the nvnews forum for a few weeks now. -- ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ L. Friedman [email protected] LlamaLand http://netllama.linux-sxs.org
