Confused, FC2T3, 5328, GF5900.. and a Newbie!
 
I installed the 5328s (they had been modified for the 2.6.5 kernel), before I had the 5336's.
The installation worked fine, editied my XF86Config also...
I am not getting the NVIDIA splash screen on boot, I used to with FC1....
Here is a line from my X11 log-

(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (NVIDIA XFree86 driver not found)

I try to run UT2004, and it's screen comes up and just goes away...

Argh...

Why are you using the 5328, the 5336 works fine with 2.6.5.

Are you referring to the 5336's on NVidia's website?

I have reinstalled 5336. I edited my xorg.conf file, removed Load "dri" and changed "nv" to "nvidia"
When it tries to start X on that kernel, I get a black screen (on a SMP kernel), then I boot to the non-SMP kernel, re-edit my xorg.conf back to the way it was...

I am glad to hear someone out there can make it work, all I am asking is how??

I originally thought that editing XF86Config would do the trick, but, I am noticing that doing that did nothing at all..

Any words of wisdom to a Newbie??

Thanks

Yes...
You are running a kernel that will not work with these drivers because you are running test 3.
Have you taken the necessary steps to recompile the kernel into a usable configuration yet? You need to tell us if that is the case.

Where the "necessary steps to recompile the kernel into a usable configuration" refers to the process of rebuilding recent Fedora Core Test 2 kernels with 8K stacks (and w/o 4G/4G split for older driver releases), as described in related threads on this forum.
