Re: F10 question with nvidia card

I upgraded to F10 and now I need to get my nvidia card working. I ran

yum install kmod-nvidia

which went fine except that I still don't have the gl graphics working.

Ok, that's odd. So I then naively tried

[root saturn ~]# rpm -e kmod-nvidia
error: Failed dependencies:
kmod-nvidia >= 173.14.12-5.lvn9.1 is needed by (installed) kmod-nvidia-2.6.26.6-79.fc9.i686-173.14.12-5.lvn9.1.i686 kmod-nvidia >= 177.82-1.fc10.4 is needed by (installed) kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686-177.82-1.fc10.4.i686
[root saturn ~]#


Since this is an upgrade, shouldn't the package be installed on top of the old one?

Anyone know what to do next?

TIA


kmod-nvidia is a metapackage, to deal with the screwy dependency issues that result from having to ship an extra variant of the nvidia module every time Nvidia decides to stop supporting another generation of less-than-bleeding-edge hardware. What you're seeing is normal, and your module is already installed. Have fun with X configuration.

In other words, blame Nvidia.
