Unfortunately, there are two issues which the open source driver nouveau:
1. The laptop does not resume from suspend to ram after having been
connected to an external monitor, this is bug
2. I intend to work with Nvidias CUDA framework and therefore have to
use their driver
I tried to use both the nvidia-graphics.x86_64e kmod-nvidia* package
from rpmfusion repo and the nvidia-graphics package from the atrpms repo.
Using standard boot options, the boot process seems to hang just
before gdm is started. Adding the kernel option nomodeset,
the monitor gets dark after the boot process and after having
connected a 2nd monitor I realized that actually the laptop monitor
light was completely switched off. Is there any possibility to switch
it on during the boot process?
Any ideas or experience how to get the Nvidia driver running?
Of course, any pointers or hints are very much appreciated!
Hi: I've no Mac experience and currently run f16 but here are a few
The rpmfusion and atrpms packages are generally believed incompatible.
If you try one, remove all traces of the other - lib packages too.
I use ATrpms; the nvidia-graphics package should pull in
nvidia-graphics-helpers, nvidia-graphics302.17, a kmdl and a libs
package, and maybe nvidia-graphics-devices too.
I don't think the nomodeset kernel option has been needed for some time,
although it probably gets set automatically.
You may need to run, as root, /usr/sbin/nvidia-graphics-switch.
