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?

Howdy All -
I have Gigabyte EP43-UD3L motherboard with a single PCI Express 2.0 x16
slot. It currently has a decent NVidia card - a GeForce 7300 GT. I've
got two monitors attached, one via the VGA port and one via the digital
video port. It works well, I get accelerated X and wobbly windows and
all that silliness. Guilty pleasure: I like eye candy.
I'd *really* love to do triple head - the monitor in front of me for my
main work, and the two side screens for supporting stuff.
I am wondering, since my motherboard has a four PCI Express x1 ports and
I see PCI Express x1 video cards for decent prices, if I can either
replace my single card with two identical two-port X1 cards, or just add
a single X1 video card to what I already have and get triple head.
Has anyone done this?

I was asked to assist connecting a Fedora linux system for video

Does anyone have any experience in using the Mac installation for oovoo
for Fedora? Can anyone make recommendations for connections that allow
video conferencing with Fedora.
Is there a list anywhere of supported hardware for gnome-shell? I've
tried it on 3 computers so far and none of them work. The first was
VMWare which I've seen isn't supported so I wrote that off. The second
was a dell optiplex 790 with on-board intel accelerated graphics. The
final one is an optiplex 960 with a Radeon HD 3450 in it. Is there
something wrong with the setup or is gnome-shell really that selective
about hardware even after its been in two Fedora releases?
SHORT VERSION: I think I've found a temporary solution to this Fedora
install problem (found on other distros too), but I am not sure about
_why_ it works, and it's the best solution. Any feedback is very
I've got a HP G6 1273SL laptop with this chipset and a live cd of
Fedora 16 x86_64, KDE spin.
When running live from the CD there were NO graphic problems. So I
went and installed it on the laptop hard disk. The install was
successful, or so anaconda said, so I rebooted.
I got the GRUB 2 menu just fine. However, when I select or let start
the default entry, the screen goes completely black. If I remove the
"quiet" option in the grub entry I see that the last thing before it
goes black is "radeon something..." (too fast to read it...)
So it seems to me that is the same issue mentioned here:
I have done a bit of research and found this:
which also mentions the same problem on Fedora, and indeed, if I
enter "e" in grub and add to its initrd line the two parameters
Fedora boots without problems, but the laptop is quite warm.
This other page says even the first parameter alone is OK:
Now the questions:
1) first of all, I admit I don't really understand how and why this
works, that is if this is a real/ complete / best solution. Should
I add those two parameters to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT, rerun
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
and go on? I believe i should also try some combination of
vgaswitcheroo and/or radeon.modeset=0 as mentioned in other "
Radeon HD 6470M and black linux screen" threads like
that, as far as I undertsand, should be better since they should
completely turn off that chip and make the laptop cooler but... how
to implement them in Fedora? This not clear to me.
2) why there was no problem with the live cd??? What are the options
used there that make the distro work from the cd but not from the
Please note that, for me, at least for the short/medium term, it is
perfectly OK for me to use only the on-board graphich chipset instead
of the radeon one, I don't need to do heavy 3D stuff with this
Thanks, hope this helps.
