I've been playing around with nvidia cards on a number of machines the
last couple of days, and there is a gotcha with the RPM Fusion Nvidia
drivers.

That is, if nouveua is loaded, the nvidia driver won't work.  So, I
would say, dump one or the other.  Either remove kmod-nvidia, or
blacklist nouveau, as shown on this page:

http://fedorasolved.org/video-solutions/nvidia-yum-kmod/
(one caveat about this page)*

If you look at dmesg, and see a bunch of nvidia related errors, try
blacklisting nouveau.


Yes, I had blacklisted nouveau in grub.conf. The problem with the livna drivers is that they would not detect at boot time the second monitor.

I'd like to get nouveau to work, though.

Thanks for the response!
