Default livna nvidia at last!

Downloaded the latest kmod-nvidia from livna this morning, and finally
I can run my monitor at the 1920x1200 resolution God (or DELL, anyway)
intended it to run at. Still have to add the bogus driver option:

Option "ModeValidation" "NoMaxPClkCheck"

but that isn't new with this card (something somewhere insists that the
max pixel clock rate is considerably lower than the actual max rate
for a DVI interface, so I have to make the driver ignore that bogus
info, and it works perfectly - smoke hasn't yet started coming out of
the system after all these years of ignoring the pixel clock check :-).

Together with the magic ServerFlags option:

Option "AutoAddDevices" "False"

(which makes DragLockButtons work again so my trackball is functional),
and I'm almost ready to declare fedora 9 finally usable :-).

Upgraded to newer kernel in test and the driver no longer works. Not
having used livna's mods hardly, is there an rpm that will automake or
use the newer kernel without having to reinstall and/or rebuild the
driver?

I see both kmod-nvidia and akmod-nvidia. Possibly the akmod version
is the one that uses dkms (or something like it) to build the proper
kernel driver at boot time if necessary, but I'm not entirely
certain about that.

I usually just wait a day after a new kernel comes out and the new
livna module has usually shown up by then.

There is a thread called "Today's Kernel is no good" and a few comments
floating around. You might sit back and see if the new kernel becomes
the "newer kernel."

Now if only the nv driver would work on my system long enough to just
do the install I would be really happy.

Unfortunately the text based installer doesn't allow you to pick and
choose your packages or I would use it.

You can use "yum search" to get a list of matching packages,
then "yum install" to install exactly the one you want once
you know the full names.

You should be able to use the vesa driver. I think you enter "linux
vesa" on the prompt line when you boot the installer.

The vesa driver works correctly. Thank you!
