problem with NVIDIA drivers on FC2

Recommended Posts

I downloaded the NVIDIA v.6629 drivers and installed it but before the installation proceeded, a msg appeared ( module license nvidia taints kernel). But after the msg, the installation proceeded smoothly so i didnt think too much abt it but then, after using FC2 a few times, everything fouled up. Gnome and KDE both crashed and i couldnt even boot up into the GUI. I uninstalled the 6629 driver and tried the older versions out but the same msg appeared. Somebody got this b4?

Did you boot into a console (non-gui environment) before installing the drivers by editing the /etc/inittab file and rebooting?

 

What lines did you change in the X config file?

And you did the following?

 

If you already have an X config file working with a different driver (such as the 'nv' or 'vesa' driver), then all you need to do is find the relevant Device section and replace the line:

 

Driver "nv"

or Driver "vesa"

 

with

 

Driver "nvidia"
