Depending on where you got your *last* nvidia driver from (either
rpmfusion or atrpms), you should just have to do a "yum update".
Remember to enable the appropriate repo if you normally disable it
If you are building it yourself, you'll have to rebuild it again....
I found the repos are dangerous and very difficult to find. Yum could
not find kmod-nvidia nor akmod-nvidia but locked up until I manually
removed them from repos.d .They don't or didn't for me provide any
useful applications and crashed the system.
I've been through the painful process of getting nvidia drivers to work, it's taken days of experimetnation.
I resorted to downloading the appropriate nvidia driver and finding it
only works with certain F10 kernels.
NVIDIA-x86-185.18.36-pkg1.run worked for me for my 8600GT card
Select your driver from the appropriate archive.
yum install gcc, make, glibc-headers,
uname -r to get the kernel version.
rpm -qa kernel-devel
rpm -qa kernel-headers
If there are mis matches yum search for the correct files yum remove the
mismatches and install the good versions.
then install from an init 3 terminal. not from X.
the NVIDIA-x86-nnnnn.run driver will check that you have the headers and
devel files to match your kernel.
The above is the only way I could get the nvidia driver to work
Nvidia drivers do not work with F11 and F12 there are dozens of failure
reports on google and I have experimented for days now to solve the
problems but am stuck with nouveau graphics which are useless for 3D
Hope this helps
