    1. Great. This is applicable to fedora15. I have tested it and it is working fine. Thanks, bro!! My video card is Geforce GTS 250.

    2. Don’t forget to run nvidia-config after running yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs. I only needed step 4. Thanks good post. For your help I will click some adds ;–))

    3. 99% of the time I have better luck downloading the driver from nvidia instead of the repo

    4. Sorry, I am new to Linux. How exactly do I open the xorg.conf?

      • Hi Phildo,

        You can open it with text editor. On command line you can open text files with text editors, like nano, vi, emacs etc. and on desktop environment you can use example, gedit, kwrite, kate etc.

    5. Download latest Nvidia unix driver from their website, make it executable

      Disable nouveau in grub.cfg by appending the following to boot line:

      rdblacklist=nouveau nouveau.modeset=0

      Switch to runlevel 3 (telinit 3)

      Install gcc and kernel-devel:

      yum isntall gcc kernel-devel-$(uname-r)

      Run nvidia installer.


      Job done

    6. It Helped me lot.. It is working fine..
