Default F8 & Freshrpms nvidia-x11-drv-96xx problem

I just updated my FC6 server to F8 (replaced not upgraded) and installed
the nvidia-x11-drv-96xx driver from Freshrpms which has always worked
before and is working right now on my desktop. Both systems are running
the 64bit version of Fedora. Below is the make.log file from DKMS:



DKMS make.log for nvidia-1.0.9639-1 for kernel 2.6.23.1-49.fc8 (x86_64)

I've never looked at this file before so I don't know what I'm supposed
to see but the "cp" command looks funny as it appears to be trying to
copy a file onto itself. The module obviously fails to build and X fails
to run.


Thanks,

Default F8 & Freshrpms nvidia-x11-drv-96xx problem

1.0.9639 is rather old, and isn't supported any longer. If this is
the latest that freshrpms is giving out, then they're out of date, and
you need to go elsewhere.

Sorry, should have said I've got an old Geforce 4 MX card which is not
supported in the newer versions...

Replying to my own message here... As an experiment I installed the
current nvidia driver from freshrpms and it sucessfully built.
Unfortunately it doesn't support my graphics card.


It seems that the current version of the driver installs/builds
differently from the legacy versions. It always worked perfectly in FC6
so I'm wondering if something fundamental changed in F7 or 8?
File/directory locations? Major Xorg version? Any ideas?


I have since installed the nvidia-graphics-legacy package from atrpms
and it did "work" but things don't look quite right. In the login screen
the "login" box and button size seemed out of proportion with the
background. Is this a DPI issue?


Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Richard

Same problem with nvidia-x11-drv-96xx-1.0.9639-1.i386.rpm on my 32bit
system (antique GeForce2 MX/MX 400 card). I fetched the latest legacy
driver from nvidia.org (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.01-pkg1.run.bin) which
built and runs without any glitches.

No Lonni, that's not quite true. If you happen to enter Nvidia through
http://www.nvidia.de/object/linux_de.html (the first page Goggle offers
over here when searching for 'nvidia linux'), then 1.0.6939 is the
legacy driver that you will get. Perhaps one of your colleagues might
try to update.

That's because 96.43.01 is the driver that you should be using.
1.0-9639 is an *OLDER* driver from the same branch as 96.43.01. As I
stated as the beginning of this thread, freshrpms is out of date.

I was going to do just that as a last resort. I really like the package
from freshrpms because it uses dkms so it auto rebuilds the driver with
kernel updates instead of hoping another repo has the driver ready the
same time the kernel releases.


Thanks,
Richard
