ATRPMS NVIDIA DRIVER

0 Comments

What worked was to simply go to nvidia and download their driver, run it, compile a module for my kernel and install it. The thing is I’ll probably have to recompile other modules after every kernel upgrade. I use it on several systems, but did have some trouble with it on a nvidia FX card similar to yours. I ran redhat since 5. Regarding nvidia drivers, there is the very nice rpmforge dkms-based nvidia-xdrv, which is sometimes not the latest release of the nvidia drivers. Nothing seems to have changed according to my problem above.

The box is also pretty standard. I guess windows black box strategies even work under linux! Ugh, why is this still such an issue, the drivers nvidiaa public!!! Either way, you are installing the same closed source driver. Not only did the atrpms pkg try to replace my kernel, but the install also failed after it conflicted with my current kernel.

I’ve had trouble with them in the past. I’m trying to figure out why the priority scheme doesn’t work, since it really should not allow my kernel to be overwritten. Now to install Fluxbox and the rest of my stuff At some point, the nvidia driver won’t support the kernel and I’ll be SOL.

The card is nothing weird, it’s a GeForce FX atroms a tv atrpm.

My experience with atrpms is that when you upgrade your base operating system formerly fedora in my casethe fcx. Now, if you have installed it by running the nvidia’s xxx. I’ll try the atprms module again and fiddle with modprobe, etc. The way I see it, the document is obsolete.

Cannot say that for atrpms packages. I’d say I’m just not familiar atrpmms the repositories people use nvidai under CentOS. Nothing seems to have changed according to my problem above. As you can see, it checks to see if the driver is already installed and, nivdia not, runs the script. I use it on several systems, but did have some trouble with it on a nvidia FX card similar to yours. I was going to try rpmforge next.

One thing that sucks about this strategy is that for every kernel upgrade I’ll need to recompile the darn module. It is set to take all default answers, so make sure you can successflly run the xxx. The thing is I’ll probably have to recompile other modules after every kernel upgrade.

I hadn’t tried this before because for some reason I thought nvidia had given up direct support for linux kernels and the drivers being used were 3rd party. Regarding nvidia drivers, there is the very nice rpmforge dkms-based nvidia-xdrv, which is sometimes not the latest release of the nvidia drivers. Under Fc4 I had a working xorg.

On the other hand, I still don’t know where to get nvidia, ivtv, etc. Thanks in advance, Joaquin. So, I need X. General support questions including new installations.
