NVidia on Severn2 -> It works.



First thing that happened when I installed the beta was the lack of X, 'cause I have a GeForce4, so if ppl are goin to install and use a NVidia models GeForce or Tnt (I cant garantee for quadro or others), this info will come in handy.

Here is how I installed NVidia drivers on Severn release 2:

Download the latest driver:

wget ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-4496/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run

If you try to run this as is, you will only got an error when it tries to recompile a module for our kernel acusing diferent compilers, so lets do this at comand line:

./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run --add-this-kernel

	Gotta thanks the NVidia programmers for that one.
	After it all done you can run the new installer:

./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2-custom.run

and everything should be fine. Update /etc/X11/XFree86Config you it wasnt already prepared for their drivers and have fun with your bug hunting with the possibility to watch dvds on tv-out during breaks :)

ps: Is this the definitive logo for Fedora Core? It is kinda ... basic...
ps2: I upgraded from Shrike and couldnt select pckages. Thats bad :(
