Akmod-nvidia problem

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



Since Matthew Saltzman was clear about it:

"I'm surprised the thread has gone on this long without pointing this
out:

"If you install the akmod-nvidia package, it will rebuild the driver
automatically when you boot a new kernel."

and there certainly was no strong disagreement, after I received the
2.6.29.6-217.2.7.fc11.x86_64 kernel, I installed akmod-nvidia and
rebooted. It didn't work. About 2 hours later, the kmod module was
available and I knew it had worked well until now. So, I uninstalled akmod
and rebooted. It didn't work. I un/reinstalled the kernel. Didn't work.
Uninstalled/installed kmod. Didn't work.

On the first reboot, I got something like:

audit(xxx):auid=xxx ses=xxx subj=system_u:system_r:readahead_t:50
op=remove rulekey=(null) list=2 res=1
audit(xxx):audit_enabled=0 old=1 auid=xxx ses=xxx
subj=system_u:system_r:readahead_t:50 res=1

Then, when I reboot, the boot process stops at eth0:link up or Starting
atd: [OK]. Then it freezes.

Of course, YMMV, but, as far as I'm concerned, I wouldn't advise anybody
to use akmod-nvidia.

Any way out of this mess?
