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've installed Fedora 17 and trying to install Microsoft fonts from
But I couldn't install *msttcorefonts-2.0-1.noarch.rpm* file because *
chkfontpath* is missing.
Please help me install them. Thank you
Currently, my desktop's running F16, fully updated. Just a few minutes
ago, I was reading my morning comics on-line when my box froze. Nothing
responded. Even the second hand on my desktop clock stopped moving.
Just as I was about to try for an alternate text console, it rebooted
itself and seems to be fine. This is the third or fourth time I've had
it lock up in the past few months, but the only time it's rebooted
itself and, until I "upgraded" to F16 it never happened.
I'm reporting this mostly to see if anybody else has had any similar
issues, and if so, what version of Fedora they're using. Suggestions
for diagnostics will be appreciated, but they'll have to be something I
can do over ssh, as I'm about to leave for Chaos Manor, where I'll be
house sitting while Jerry and Roberta visit their beach house.
Recently I have been having problems with my machine completely freezing up
seemingly randomly. The display freezes in its current frame, and all I/O
is completely unresponsive. It is not possible to SSH into it at this stage
(ssh fails with a Host Unreachable error). The only remedy is a manual
I was wondering how I could go about trying to figure out what is going on?
What log files can I look at to figure out what happened just before the
reset etc? Would be grateful for any help.
My specs are the following:
Fedora 17 standard desktop version, completely updated as of June 17, 2012.
i7-3930K clocked at 4.2Ghz with 1.240 vcore (stable)
Nvidia GTX285 (main suspect, since it is provably broken. However, I have
not had these problems earlier)
SATA HDD from Seagate.
Pretty much as the subject says, I guess...
I can't seem to find the definitive (or any) answer on the web site.
The 'Upgrading Fedora using yum' section goes through the necessary
steps using dracut. I'm assuming these steps are not required before
running preupgrade in F16?
