Either way, you are installing the same closed source driver. Board index All times are UTC. Now to install Fluxbox and the rest of my stuff One thing that sucks about this strategy is that for every kernel upgrade I’ll need to recompile the darn module. Not only did the atrpms pkg try to replace my kernel, but the install also failed after it conflicted with my current kernel. The way I see it, the document is obsolete.

The thing is I’ll probably have to recompile other modules after every kernel upgrade. What worked was to simply go to nvidia and download their driver, run it, compile a module for my kernel and install it. Nothing seems to have changed according to my problem above.
RPM resource nvidia-graphics190.32-libs
My experience atroms atrpms is that when you upgrade your base operating system formerly fedora in my casethe fcx. General support questions including new installations. Either way, you are installing the same closed source driver. On the other hand, I still don’t know where to get nvidia, ivtv, etc.
Regarding nvidia drivers, there is the very nice rpmforge dkms-based nvidia-xdrv, which is sometimes not the latest release of the nvidia drivers. I’ll try the rpmforge module again and fiddle with modprobe, etc.
I ran redhat since 5.
RPM resource nvidia-graphics325.15-libs
I guess windows black box strategies even work under linux! I’d say I’m just not familiar with the repositories people use reliably under CentOS.
The card is nothing weird, it’s a GeForce FX with a tv out.
At some point, the nvidia driver won’t support the kernel and I’ll be SOL. As you can see, it checks to see if the driver is already installed and, if 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 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.
Board index All times are UTC. Nviida, if you have installed it by running the nvidia’s xxx.
Thanks in advance, Joaquin. Now to install Fluxbox and the rest of my stuff The box is also pretty standard. One thing that sucks about this strategy is that for every kernel upgrade I’ll need to recompile the darn module. I was going to try rpmforge next. The way I see it, the document is obsolete. Not only did the atrpms pkg try to replace my kernel, but the install also failed after it conflicted with my current kernel.
atrpms Nvidia drivers? Yum kernel conflict??? A better repository? – CentOS
Under Fc4 I had a working xorg. Cannot say that for ztrpms packages. So, I need X. Ugh, why is this still such an issue, the drivers are public!!! I’ve had trouble with them in the past. I’m trying to figure out why the priority scheme atrpmx work, since it really should not allow my kernel to be overwritten.
It is set to take all default answers, so make sure you can successflly run the xxx.
