Re: Can't load Nvidia driver on Fedora 9 x86_64



Hugh,

I know it doesn't help much, but just to give you a positive, that
driver is working on for my integrated GeForce 6150 on x86_64:

$grep -i nvidia /var/log/Xorg.0.log
<snip>
(II) Module nvidia: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
(II) NVIDIA dlloader X Driver  173.14.09  Wed Jun  4 23:48:23 PDT 2008
(II) NVIDIA Unified Driver for all Supported NVIDIA GPUs
<snip>

$lsmod | grep -i nvid
nvidia               8108912  24 
i2c_core               28448  2 nvidia,i2c_nforce2

$lspci -v | grep -i nvid
<snip>

<snip>

$rpm -qa | grep nvidi

kmod-nvidia-2.6.25.4-30.fc9.x86_64-173.14.05-3.lvn9.x86_64
  (I have an old kernel still installed.)
kmod-nvidia-173.14.09-1.lvn9.x86_64
kmod-nvidia-2.6.25.6-55.fc9.x86_64-173.14.09-1.lvn9.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-173.14.09-1.lvn9.x86_64

$rpm -qf /lib/modules/2.6.25.6-55.fc9.x86_64/extra/nvidia/nvidia.ko
kmod-nvidia-2.6.25.6-55.fc9.x86_64-173.14.09-1.lvn9.x86_64

$uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.25.6-55.fc9.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Jun 10 16:05:21 EDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I guess it's a problem with the rebuilding of the module by the
kmod-nvidia rpm, so I'd start by removing and re-adding it; and/or
checking it's post/pre scripts and finding out how it rebuilds the
module and doing so by hand just to get it working.  

I assume you have the akmods/kmodtool rpms installed?  I believe they're
related to livna's rebuilding process, but I haven't needed to confirm
that.

$ rpm -qa | grep kmod
kmodtool-1-11.lvn9.noarch
akmods-0.3.1-1.lvn9.noarch


Regards,
Richard
