Use the Nvidia 173.14.22 series drivers for your FX 5200. 3D won't be

Thanks.
Is it something I can do with yum and rpmfusion?
I'm able to work outside the package system,
but I always find it a struggle.


kmod-nvidia on rpmfusion

See <http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpost.php?p=1114782&postcount=2> for complete instructions. You need the section "For GeForce FX cards".

Thanks, it seems to mostly work.
On some files, I got the message
[vdpau] Could not open dynamic library libvdpau.so.1
At some point, I did a
yum  install libvdpau-0.2-1.fc11.i586
to provide it.
Now I'm getting the message
Failed to open VDPAU backend libvdpau_nvidia.so: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory
[vdpau] Error when calling vdp_device_create_x11: 1

yum provides libvdpau_nvidia.so
gives me two answers:
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-185.18.36-3.fc11.i586 and
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-190.42-1.fc11.i586 .

Trying to install either one gives me dependency errors:
yum install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-185.18.36-3.fc11.i586
...

Does that mean no go on libvdpau?

I just tried it on an old box with an FX 5200 running the "nouveau" driver on F11. Seems to work fine. I used the "Blacklist the nouveau driver" section to keep nouveau from loading. You may not need to do this.
