Since the "nv" driver seems to have lots of
problems, I thought I'd try the nouveau driver.  The
result was a black screen and a locked up box. No Xorg.0.log
file created, so no errors to report.

Does this actually work with F10? Anybody got it running?
Tips?

Thanks,

John

I was using it on Fedora 10 with nvidia card:

[olivares localhost ~]$ /sbin/lspci | grep 'VGA'
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GeForce 8400 GS (rev a1)
[olivares localhost ~]$
However, I wanted to watch movies and get the best out of my experience.  While the nvoueau worked, it was not to my liking.  I enabled rpm fusion and installed nvidia drivers and now can play movies and have no troubles like I did with nvoueau.  If you want to get the best out of your card, go ahead and enable rpm fusion and install the nvidia driver.  Check out the following page(s) if you will follow this route:

http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f10.html

and/or

http://www.fedorafaq.org/

and you should be set provided your card is supported in some way. Also you are encouraged to install akmod package, this way when and if you install a new kernel, the akmod package takes care of building the nvidia driver against your new kernel and all should just work. If you do not need multimedia capabilities the noveaux driver should work, and if it does not, many will encourage you to file bug reports.

Thanks for the reply. I'm using the nvidia driver for my new cards, but this card is a TNT2 (10 years old). The nvidia driver that supports it won't build with the current F10 kernel, the nv driver is a P.O.S, and it looks like nouveau doesn't like it either. Guess I'm out of luck.

If F11 doesn't work, I'll file a bugzilla.

Thanks,

John
