Default Can't load Nvidia driver on Fedora 9 x86_64

Hugh,

I know it doesn't help much, but just to give you a positive, that
driver is working on for my integrated GeForce 6150 on x86_64:

$grep -i nvidia /var/log/Xorg.0.log
<snip>
(II) Module nvidia: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
(II) NVIDIA dlloader X Driver 173.14.09 Wed Jun 4 23:48:23 PDT 2008
(II) NVIDIA Unified Driver for all Supported NVIDIA GPUs
<snip>

$lsmod | grep -i nvid
nvidia 8108912 24
i2c_core 28448 2 nvidia,i2c_nforce2

$lspci -v | grep -i nvid
<snip>
00:05.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C51PV [GeForce 6150] (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Kernel driver in use: nvidia
Kernel modules: nvidiafb, nvidia
<snip>

$rpm -qa | grep nvidi
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-173.14.09-1.lvn9.x86_64
kmod-nvidia-2.6.25.4-30.fc9.x86_64-173.14.05-3.lvn9.x86_64
(I have an old kernel still installed.)
kmod-nvidia-173.14.09-1.lvn9.x86_64
kmod-nvidia-2.6.25.6-55.fc9.x86_64-173.14.09-1.lvn9.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-173.14.09-1.lvn9.x86_64

$rpm -qf /lib/modules/2.6.25.6-55.fc9.x86_64/extra/nvidia/nvidia.ko
kmod-nvidia-2.6.25.6-55.fc9.x86_64-173.14.09-1.lvn9.x86_64

$uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.25.6-55.fc9.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Jun 10 16:05:21 EDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I guess it's a problem with the rebuilding of the module by the
kmod-nvidia rpm, so I'd start by removing and re-adding it; and/or
checking it's post/pre scripts and finding out how it rebuilds the
module and doing so by hand just to get it working.

I assume you have the akmods/kmodtool rpms installed? I believe they're
related to livna's rebuilding process, but I haven't needed to confirm
that.

$ rpm -qa | grep kmod
kmodtool-1-11.lvn9.noarch
akmods-0.3.1-1.lvn9.noarch


Regards,
Richard

I can confirm a problem

tarifa ~ 864# uname -a
Linux tarifa 2.6.25.6-55.fc9.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Jun 10 16:05:21 EDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

If I install the latest "livna" nvidia rpms then X fails

yum --enable=livna update

I had to back off to

tarifa ~ 865# rpm -qa|grep -a nvidia
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-173.14.05-1.lvn9.x86_64
kmod-nvidia-173.14.05-4.lvn9.x86_64

I have been lazy and not probed any further !!
