Looking Fedora 22/21 nVidia Drivers Install Guide? [inttf_post_ad1] This is guide, howto install nVidia proprietary drivers on Fedora 14 and disable Nouveau driver. I write this guide about two weeks ago, but I Delayed the publication of this guide, because of pyxf86config bug, which cause following livna-config-display errors on boot: Checking for module nvidia.ko: [ OK ] Enabling the nvidia driver: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/sbin/nvidia-config-display", line 28, in import livnaConfigDisplay.ConfigDisplay File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/livnaConfigDisplay/ConfigDisplay.py", line 29, in import xf86config File...

Great. This is applicable to fedora15. I have tested it and it is working fine. Thanks, bro!! My video card is Geforce GTS 250.
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 ;–))
99% of the time I have better luck downloading the driver from nvidia instead of the repo
Sorry, I am new to Linux. How exactly do I open the xorg.conf?
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.
This no longer works for fedora 14:
[[email protected] ~]# rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
warning: /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.bHzHp0: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 00a4d52b: NOKEY
error: Failed dependencies:
system-release >= 15 is needed by rpmfusion-free-release-15-5.noarch
Yes you are right…Fedora 14 have reached End of Life, and are no longer maintained and do not receive any updates. So I recommend you to install Fedora 16 and Fedora 16 nVidia drivers.
Download latest Nvidia unix driver from their website, make it executable
Disable nouveau in grub.cfg by appending the following to boot line:
Switch to runlevel 3 (telinit 3)
Install gcc and kernel-devel:
yum isntall gcc kernel-devel-$(uname-r)
Run nvidia installer.
It Helped me lot.. It is working fine..
