Default Re: SOLVED Fedora 12 Problems installing Nvidia driver

Thanks for pointing out that link to me. Who has ownership of the RPMFusion repo's ? I do wonder how many Fedora newcomers (at Fedora 12) are having problems installing the nvidia driver with Yum, bearing in mind that the kmod-nvidia package is still in the rpmfusion update-testing repo's?

I love Fedora, use it on my desktop, and netbook, but, in contrast to Ubuntu who offers newcomers a popup notification at first boot saying "Nvidia Proprietary Driver available, would you like to install blah blah...". In Fedora, a newcomer must install the RPMFusion repo's, enable the testing repo, install kmod-nvidia , disable nouveau etc etc...

Anyway - enough! This is an Nvidia forum, not a Fedora forum.

RPM Fusion is a merger of Dribble, Freshrpms, and Livna repo's so I guess they own rpmfusion.
