QUOTE (Nerdio @ Feb 28 2007, 05:54 PM) *
I have decided now that I am starting to find my way with Linux, that I would install the correct NVIDIA driver on my FC5 installation (Video is awful at the moment, but bearable).

I downloaded the NVIDIA driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7184-pkg1.run
, and also, got hold of my kernel source using yum kernel-devel. This all seesm to be OK. However, when I run the above NVIDIA package, it seems to compile the kernel interface, then fails. The log file is quite lengthy, but the first notable error is as follows;

echo; \
echo " ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid."; \
echo " include/linux/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are miss
ing."; \
echo " Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it.
"; \
echo; \
Does anybody have any experience of installing NVIDIA drivers, and compiling the kernel interface? (Video card is an ol GEForce2 MX100 DDR/MX200 DDR)

Thanks

If you are logged into Gnome just use `switchdesk`

It will let you switch desktops for next time you login.

Look at creating a ssh key, this will be a public/private key that will let one pc talk to another without having to use a password.

Not sure where fedora puts the kde directory as I do not run KDE. but looks like SuSE places its kde in /opt/kde3 which i think is different than what Fedora does.

So basically figure out where KDE is installed to on Fedora and that directory will be in place of --prefix=KDEDRI

Or you could install Fedora : I am not understanding this proprietary business you are referring too.

I am assuming the nvidia installer is curious as to what kernel it should compile the module for?

In that case can you not just accept the defaults and it let do its thing automatically?

Yea Fedora uses /etc/modprobe.conf which replaced modules.conf

Not sure why your modules are getting unloaded at reboot, kudzu could be the culprit.

Could always put a 'modprobe 3c59x' in your /etc/rc.local file see if it loads it then.

you dont need to install alsa drivers as its built into the kernel so check your kernel config and see if alsa is actually enabled. alsactl store will just save the alsa settings for next reboot.

Looks like X didn't get installed properly try reloading X off the cd or use yum to upgraded to latest xorg.

You probably want to boot into runlevel 3 to do this so at grub boot screen type 'a' to append to the boot line, hit a space once and type 'init 3' without quotes.

once there log in as root and upgrade your xorg

Goto fedoratracker.org -> click repositories, create a new yum.conf based on your options whether it be base, extras, third party, etc.. make sure to choose yum/apt config and fedora core 2..

It will spit out a new yum.conf file just copy that over the old one and run yum update

Should get you going smile.gif

See if this fixes your problem.
