1.0-5336 Nvidia Driver Broken on Fedora Core 2 Final
 
Just upgraded to Fedora Core 2 and the nvidia driver is broken. After upgrading, I re-installed the nvidia-5336 driver. It recompiled itself and installed without any errors. The reboot failed and crashed. I tried it with smp and mono kernels. After about 3 reboots, I got fed up and uninstalled the driver with nvidia-installer --uninstall and then updating the /etc/X11/XF86Config file to select the generic nv driver eg

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nv"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA Quadro 4 (generic)"
EndSection

Saw some threads that say the problem is related to the new 2.6 kernel paramters.

The problem is fixed by downloading a non-fedora kernel and compile with the following parameters


CONFIG4_STACKS = n
CONFIG_REGPARMS = n


(note n means NO)

Recompile the kernel, install as default and then re-run the nvidia-5336 install and change the XF86Config file back.

This is supposed to fix the problem.

Perhaps someone can let the Nvidia Support people know - I certainly could not find any contact / bug reporting channel.

The proper place to report the issue is to linux-bugs@nvidia.com. Please do not flood them with excess email.. I'm quite positive they are aware of this situation. If you would like to send an email and can't resist the urge... go ahead, but they know.

In fact, there has been an email excerpt from nvidia posted recently.
