Red Hat / Fedora :: FC12 Fails To Start After Installing Kmod-nvidia

Jan 23, 2010

After installing nvidia drivers (sudo yum install kmod-nvidia), Fedora12 (kernel fails to start. To be more exact, it show the 'loading screen', and then the screen gets all scrambled. Trying to switch the ttys doesn't work either (though I can boot in runlevel 3).

I know that there might be some conflicts with nouveu, but i followed the steps from 'Fedora Nvidia Driver Install Guide' (not allowed to post URLs), so I guess nouveu isn't exactly my problem(?).

Another puzzling thing about this, is that I can boot and use FC12 from VMware. No problems there. I also tried removing/reinstalling the kmod-nvidia (and everything else nvidia related), but the problem persists.

Specs: Intel core2duo t7300, nvidia 8600m gs, 2gb ram.

PS tried nvidia installer previously, and problem was the same, so I reinstalled FC12 at that time.

Fedora :: System Hangs On Reboot After Installing Kmod-nvidia In F12 / Sort It?

Mar 31, 2010

Having a problem with my system hanging after updating Fedora 12. Here are my system specs:

Gigabyte MA770-UD3 motherboard
AMD Phenom 9950 Quad Core
6 gig Corsair DDR 800
1 x 160 gig SATA (OS)
1 x 500 gig SATA (data)

I have my system configured for dual boot with Windows 7. After installing F12, I can reboot with no problem. However, after I install the kmod-nvidia drivers, my system hangs on reboot. If I press any key on the keyboard, it will start to load, the freeze until I press a key again. I have tried both Fedora 12 x64 and i386 with the same results. Here are the steps that I took to install the kmod-nvidia drivers code...

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong?

Fedora :: Uninstall Nvidia Drivers (kmod-nvidia)?

Fedora :: Difference Between Kmod-nvidia And Akmod-nvidia?

May 30, 2010

i did something wrong and i was left with one way and that was reinstalling fedora core 12 so i don't want to do the wrong way one more time,what is the difference between kmod-nvidia and akmod-nvidia?i did yum -y install akmod-nvidia and then type xconfig-nvidia on the terminal,after logging off i confront with a blank screen,so i reinstall fc12 x86-64.from what i've understand this is what i should do?

1:yum update

2:setsetbool -P allow-execstack on ==> in order to lower your system protection so SElinux doesn't prevent the driver from loading

3:if it's standard kernel type use komd-nividia and for PAE kernel type use kmod-nvidia-PAE

4: Keep nouveau from loading so

su -c 'mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nouveau.img'
su -c 'dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)'

5:To use the default initrd, but disable the nouveau driver, edit /etc/grub.conf and add the following to the end of the line(s) starting with 'kernel':


if these are right!will yum update command update everything?as i'm still on dial up.i couldn't find kmod-nvidia with command yum install kmod-nvidia [although i had rpmfusion free&nonefree but i did not execute the yum update command before that,is this the reason that yum could not find the komd-nvidia?

Fedora X86/64bit :: Nvidia Libs - Print Fails To Start

Sep 8, 2010

After the 4th install The printer will at least produce a test page, but the available resolution is low, I suspect I need the gutenprint enhanced drivers, printer is a EPSON R285. Where do I find the nvidia libs so I can use the Nvidia driver for my ancient 8500 GTX. Using the package manager find nvidia shows nothing.

Are these libs held on another repo, as in other distros?, and is Acroread availble? is there a listing if the repos somewhere, I have some apps that have to be compiled and are a pig to get going, due to using those funny cut down libs that ubuntu use. When I backed up the last failing version of FC13, which hung as soon as yum was started, didn't print ect, I didn't close firefox down before copying the file. So the user config is locked, ie, you get firefox is already running, and fails to start. I found parentlock and deleted it, but but there is another lock file that needs to be removed, and I can't find it.. Anyone know the location of the lockfiles for firefox.?

Fedora :: 12 - Kmod-nvidia-PAE ?

Apr 6, 2010

I'm trying to get my 7800GS (AGP) working in Fedora 12. The default driver from NVIDIA will not install at all. Gives an error about nvidia.ko.

So I've tried to go kmod-nvidia. I followed this thread [url].

I ran a 'yum update' to get the latest everything. Reset, typed in rdblacklist=nouveau, reset, then tried 'yum install kmod-nvidia-PAE' it worked!

But now the computer does not have a screen. I had to SSH in to edit inittab to be runlevel 3.

How to get this nVIDIA driver installed?!

Fedora :: Kmod-nvidia And Dracut

May 31, 2010

Having downloaded the DVD iso which failed to burn correctly I decided to try a live X86_64 iso, and installed from that. This was fine and I had set everything up apart from the nvidia drivers( nouveau worked but with no 3d for desktop effects). The card is a 7300LE and was working fine with kmod-nvida in F12. Following the instructions that leigh provides a howto for as usual I thought I would finish off the install. However I had several errors show up, which unfortuantely I did not keep a note of concerning dracut. On the restart the install was trashed, just froze solid in plymouth. Having been here before I decided that I would just do a complete reinstall again and investigate further what is going wrong later.

Having now a really nice slick F13 with all my servers set up etc and now running under nouveau I have just decided to check out dracut dependencies with the following: rpm -qR dracut-005-3.fc13

This gives:

Checking through the list of installed software I am unable to locate the following:

Though rpmlib is installed which may well be for the various rpmlib()'s above, I cannot see any package for fileutils,mktemp or mount in the repo's.

Fedora :: How Does Metapackage Kmod-nvidia Work

Nov 6, 2009

I got my nvidia drivers for my Fedora 11 64 bit system from RPMFusion.But each time my kernel is upgraded, X stops working because I don't have the proper module installed. Previously I booted an earlier kernel and installed the proper nvidia kernel module, and all was well. But this time with kernel vmlinuz-, I don't yet have the corresponding kernel module.So I have to make do for the moment with an earlier kernel.

But in the process I discovered the metapackage kmod-nvidia-185-18.36-1.ff11.3.x86_64, and installed it.It has no files, and according to the information blurb, its sole purpose is to keep the installation of the kernel and the kernel module in sync.Does anyone know how this works?Is the kernel not installed until the corresponding kernel module is available?Also, it hasn't even been 24 hours, so I guess I should be patient, but how long is it likely to be before the kernel module for tthe new kernel is available?

Fedora :: - No Matching Kmod-nvidia Package

Jun 17, 2010

just updated to new kernel along with some other updates to python and boy what a mess!
I can't run at all with the new kernel (the kernel appears to load but stops before the xserver loads, I think)I really don't think this is a generally problematic bug though, i'm afraid that this setup is just fusty since I have been having trouble with metacity (causes the cpu to spin up --metaphorically of course--to ridiculous amounts until I kill the process, which it happily does without actually killing it but it does spin down again to 2-3% from 60% or so) and the python update seems to have killed the nVidia setup and 3D as well. so.... anybody have any suggestions on how to straighten this mess out without setting up again? This is actually the second time I set this up since the metacity bug made me thing it was fusty the first time, but a second setup didn't solve it.

I did turn the metacity bug in as a kernel bug (because it was in some way related to massive kernel ticks which was keeping the cpu going, but have had no response to that, unless this latest update did that.

Fedora :: Kmod-nvidia Package - Improper Installation

Dec 28, 2009

I have just upgraded the hard drive in my laptop with a new one that isn't about to crash (I dropped the laptop a few months back). After installing Fedora 12, the first thing I did was try to install kmod-nvidia and all its dependencies. Upon rebooting Fedora goes to the boot splash, and then when the login screen should display it instead shows a blank black terminal like screen. Do diagnose this I logged in under terminal (tty3) and proceeded to try to start X manually. It displayed an error to the effect of 'could not load Nvidia kernel module Nvidia_module.so3'. I figured it must have been a glitch so I reinstalled kmod and the same thing happened. Tried reinstalling Fedora all together and still the same result. I am getting kmod from the RPM Fusion repo

Fedora :: Installed Kmod-nvidia On My F12 - Doesn't Boot Anymore

Dec 7, 2009

I've installed kmod-nvidia on my F12 system and now it doesn't boot anymore. I just receive a black screen with a blinking '_' on top of my screen immediately after i choose F12 in my grub menu. (I have a Nvidia 8800GT.)

I've tried to run the following command after the installation but it didn't work: [url]

mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nouveau.img

So I didn't blacklist nouveau or anything else. I just foolishly thought it was going to work.

Now I can't boot my system anymore. Is there any way to solve the problem? Or can I remove kmod-nvidia using a live cd? How?

Fedora Hardware :: Recieve Error When Trying To Install Kmod-nvidia ?

Sep 13, 2010

I have been using F13 with no problem for ages, but yesterday I decided to wipe my computer and re install it, and now I am having problems! It is with the nvidia driver.

I have a GeForce 8600 GT and usually just install kmod-nvidia and xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 and blacklist the nouveau driver and that works fine. However since yesterday I recieve this error when trying to install kmod-nvidia:

Error: Package:

From hunting around on the net I took this to mean that there isn't a kmod-nvidia for the latest kernel? So one thing it said to try was to install akmod-nvidia, which I did. Then on boot up I saw that it created the correct dirvers for what I wanted and booted into Fedora, I tested that it worked (with 3d effects) and everything was fine.

However, when I restarted the computer it got seemingly to the end of the boot sequence, and then the screen just flashed repeatedly for a few seconds and then didn't do anything?
