No screens found in fedora core
Hi. I just updated from RedHat 9 to fedora core. The nvidia drivers were working fine in RH9 (including GLX and twinview), but they don't work in Fedora. I am running kernel 2.6.0 (just like I was in RH). lsmod shows:
nvidia 1708300 0.
I am using the same XF86Config that I was in RH9 (excpet in Fedora I renamed it to XF86Config-4). XFree86.0.log shows that the driver dies at:
II) Module fbdevhw: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.3.0, module version = 0.0.2
ABI class: XFree86 Video Driver, version 0.6
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module glx
(II) UnloadModule: "glx"
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (module does not exist, 0)
(II) LoadModule: "record"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/librecord.a
(II) Module record: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.3.0, module version = 1.13.0
Module class: XFree86 Server Extension
ABI class: XFree86 Server Extension, version 0.2

(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module nvidia

(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)
(II) LoadModule: "mouse"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/input/mouse_drv.o
(but this is crazy since the driver *is* loaded. It also sits in /lib/modules/2.6.0/kernel/drivers/video
I have already run depmod 2.6.0 after applying the patch and building 4496. Any ideas? Has anyone gotten fedora core running with the accelerated nvidia drivers?
That's just the kernel module. What about the XFree86 driver that talks to this kernel module?
OK. I have used the same build for a long time (4496). For whatever reason, installing Fedora Core made it unhappy (even though I installed Fedora on another drive, left this drive intact, yadda yadda. I downloaded new versions of 4496 (should be the same as the old ones), applied the patch, built and NVIDIA drivers are working. When I tried the old files, I did delete and untar from the old sources and rebuilt. It didn't work for whatever reason, and the new sources worked (again, for whatever reason). The Mesa/GLX stuff worked right off though. I didn't have to rebuild it at all. (Tux Racer, v4l/enhanced TV all works). Bizarre!
