Re: Beryl Manager Not Working in FEDORA 7



BTW, Beryl is no longer supported, they went to the compiz-fusion.

Anyway, here the link for the install.

Fedora recommends users install a 3rd-party RPM packaged driver instead of using the installer from Nvidia's website. Currently Livna provides a well packaged driver.

For yum only:

First, setup Livna Repository

[mirandam charon ~]$ sudo rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-7.rpm

[mirandam charon ~]$ sudo rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna

Install the nvidia driver through Livna:

[mirandam charon ~]$ sudo yum install kmod-nvidia

If a kernel update is installed at the same time, then a reboot will be required. If not, then simply log out completely of Gnome or KDE and the Nvidia driver should load. The Nvidia logo will flash quickly once.

For users without yum

Download the http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-7.rpm RPM and run:

[mirandam charon ~]$ sudo rpm -ivh livna-release-7.rpm
[mirandam charon ~]$ sudo rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-livna

Navigate to http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/7/ and select your architecture: i386, x86_64 or ppc. You will need 3 components: xorg driver, nvidia kernel module and a livna display configuration utility.

For xorg driver, select the one matching the latest Nvidia driver (1.0.9762). For example:
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-1.0.9762-2.lvn7.i386.rpm.

For nvidia kernel driver you MUST MATCH YOUR KERNEL. Use the uname command for the proper match. For example:

[mirandam charon ~]$ uname -rm
2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 i686

Selected: kmod-nvidia-1.0.9762-1.2.6.21_1.3194.fc7.i686.rpm

The display configuration utility should be named livna-config-display (example: livna-config-display-0.0.11-1.lvn7.noarch.rpm).

Install all files at the same time:

[mirandam charon downloads]$ sudo rpm -ivh kmod-nvidia-1.0.9762-1.2.6.21_1.3194.fc7.i686.rpm \
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-1.0.9762-2.lvn7.i386.rpm \
livna-config-display-0.0.11-1.lvn7.noarch.rpm 
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]

   1:livna-config-display   ########################################### [ 33%]
   2:kmod-nvidia            ########################################### [ 67%]
   3:xorg-x11-drv-nvidia    ########################################### [100%]


If you had a previous version of these files before, remove them first with rpm -e.

If you cannot find a perfect match you may will have to update to a kernel that matches from Fedora 7 Updates.

NOTE: SELinux Problems SELinux seems to prevent the v9755 Livna Nvidia Driver from properly loading after a reboot. This has been fixed in the v9762 Livna package. The following is a TEMPORARY work around:

[mirandam charon ~]$ sudo /usr/bin/chcon -cv system_u:object_r:xserver_misc_device_t /etc/udev/devices/nvidia*

If you are having this problem or unsure, please use yum to update: yum update nvidia-kmod.

Your video hardware/driver needs to support it (hardware accelerated opengl
mostly).
