Re: I'm a newcomer to Fedora 10 Live CD


That was a bit harsh for a response, to somebody trying to help - whether or not it resolved your issue. That said, see http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=205360 - it seems to be a common issue with some nVidia cards and the live cd. That was the first result in Google. My laptop, for instance (Intel Graphics) does not require any xorg.conf - and I believe this is an intended goal. Stuff like this should just work without configuration necessary.

I checked the Fedora/RH bug tracker, and the first result was: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=473301 . Different hardware (although using 'nv' as well) and sounds like the same issue. I'd suggest searching the bug reports for your exact issue, and if you find it to not be a duplicate, submit a new bug report (attach X logs as well) so that it can be (hopefully) resolved in future releases. I'm glad you found a temporary work-around, there were some others posted in that first link if you'd like to try.

Good luck,

 So you should not answer.

 A proper xorg.conf was missing. I needed to create one with: X -configure
 Then I used it with:
X -config /root/xorg.conf.new
export DISPLAY=:0.0
 and now I'm root inside Firefox.

 Could someone fix the appropriate script?
