There are all sorts of instructions as to how to install Kmod-Nvidia on
Fedora, but I thought yum would do a better job of guessing my
configuration (x86_64, 9400 GT) to get the most up-to-date correct package
and getting everything right. So, I just typed:
yum install kmod-nvidia
Now, /etc/X11/xorg.conf looks like this:
# Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display
Option "AIGLX" "on"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
The file is only a few minutes old... So, I suppose it's a new config for
the Kmod driver. But the process was so transparent, I can't help but
wonder if all those modifications to the kernel that I read about in the
doc have been made.
If so, why not provide the documentation that all that is needed is to
type the yum command?
The Nouveau driver worked very well and, since I'm not too sure I'll
install 3D, maybe I could have kept it. But my screen kept blanking once
in a while for a few seconds. This happened with my previous computer too
-- it had an old ATI card, the same monitor and a very standard open
source driver for ATI -- but not so often and not for so long: it was just
a quick blank. I thought this might fix the problem.
Also, I intend to install a TV card and, it anything doesn't work, I'm sure
the first suggestion from Nvidia will be to install their driver. As the
material I buy is only on a one week money back guarantee, I prefer to
make sure everything works in advance.
Also, as it often happens when I download new packages, there was a socket
error and a long (~ 1-2 min) halt before another server took over. (I
forgot to save the console screen before I rebooted, but the name
"liberty" was part of it.)
After the installation finished, the rx/tx light of the modem began
flashing very fast as if there was a download occuring... or maybe an
upload if some information on the installation has to be sent back to
rpmfusion or nvidia.
No indication of what was going on appeared onscreen. Is this anything to
be concerned about? Any idea What this transfer was about?

Try the following:
$ alsamixer -c0
after adjusting those to your preference save your settings with
$ su -c '/sbin/alsactl store'
put in your password and settings should be saved for next reboot, ***unless*** an update(s) breaks your configuration and let us hope that those things don't happen :)
Hi all Fedora users,
I have just joined this list. I am running the latest Fedora but I can't get
my 3C900Combo networking card to work. I can see that the card is installed
but no IP-address is asigned to it and I can't set it. So I think that there
is a bug in that driver. Any other user out there who have a solution for
Best regards and thanks,
I know that is not a specific question about Fedora, but I can't find answer on the kernel mailing list.
Is somebody having server with integrated ATI RAGE XL video card? Is it possible to patch the kernel to support this video card? If I add VGA=791 in my grub.conf, I will have a resolution of 1024x768 which is good, but the display is very slow (especially when the screen is scrolling). If I use I this: "video=aty128fb:1024x768@70" it will not work. I'm using kernel 2.4.22 but I will try 2.6.0-test11 today.
If somebody has a patch, a link or anything else that can help me, it will be appreciated.
Thanks for your help.

I have two similar PC (old Pentium but workin fine)
In Pc no.1 I upgraded from RH8 to Fedora and it went fine: Soundblaster
is working fine
In Pc no.2 I made a fresh installation but in redhat-sound-config Fedora
doesn't see any card, that was working on Redhat 9 after soundconfig...
Where is the trick?? I assume that my Sounblaster is an old 16...but
fine on a router/firewall.
I've been using a floppy boot disk as reserve if my HD boot fails, But
it appears floppy support as now been removed. Why? Then how can I
create an emergency media that is flexible enough to be updated as required?
I have a terebyte sata drive that I need to securely wipe clean. It
originally had 2 partitions. I deleted them using `fdisk', rebooted,
and then as root ran
shred -vz /dev/sdd
The drive is capable of about 60MB/sec, but shred is only "shredding"
about 25MB every 5 seconds according to its output. Since the default
number of passes is 25, this works out to about 5 days.
The `shred' process is running at 100% CPU, presumably computing
the special random patterns for erasure. Since I have 4 CPUs
would creating 4 unformatted partions on the drive and then running
shred -vz /dev/sdd1
shred -vz /dev/sdd2
shred -vz /dev/sdd3
shred -vz /dev/sdd4
in parallel cut my time? Would be just as secure?
I am running alpine-2.00-1.fc10.x86_64 on an F10 box. If I get a message with
an html or file attachment and I try to open it, I get an error that
"Firefox can't find the file at /tmp/img--46112.htm" The correct program opens
up but I always get the can't find file errors. If the message contains a URL
then it comes up and displays properly.
Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this problem?

I've tried all the tricks on this list a/o the troubleshooting
site, over and over. I finally gave up : downloaded and burned a DVD --
and *still* hit the catch-22 error, with too little space in mnt/sysimage/
Can I simply delete all of /boot, or everything in it? All of
grub.conf? Or what? It's going to be a royal pain if I have to burn all
my data to media, and then sneakermail that back onto each machine,
instead of just upgrading f11 ....
