SELinux Compatibility
 
I'm told by the Fedora people that NVIDIA drivers

don't play well with SELinux
. See the thread at http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=234814

I've used different flavors of Linux: Red Hat (back in the day before Fedora existed), earlier versions of Fedora (thru ver 5.), Ubuntu, and openSUSE, and I've never had a problem installing NVIDIA drivers for my GEForce 7200 GS card (or any other NVIDIA card I've ever had) on any of these previous releases and flavors of Linux (although openSUSE has special RPM builds of your drivers) until I recently decided to give Fedora 12 a whirl and that led to the post on the Fedora forums linked above.

So I wanted to ask NVIDIA what their position is on SELinux (and Fedora's Nouveau project) and what you all are doing to make your drivers play well with it?

Thanks

Fedora 12 and SELinux has not problems with the Nvidia Driver, its a rpmfusion thing. The Installer and Driver from nvidia.com works flawless as expected. All you have to do is to deactivate Nouveau by adding a command to the Kernel line in your grub.conf (nouveau.modeset=0).

I was quoting what people involved with the Nouveau project were saying. I did install the nVIDIA driver but after some other F12 annoyances I switched (back) to openSUSE, but I wanted to hear from nVIDIA what their stance/position is with respect to SELinux since the Fedora people claimed that there are issues with nVIDIA's drivers and SELinux.

So if anyone at nVIDIA happens upon this thread please chime in.

You just can't believe everything you hear anymore! :nono:
