Default Re: NVIDIA 8400M G installation fails

I just ran into a similar scenario with an Nvidia GeForce 7000m for my Acer aspire 5520 laptop. The sh command finally got the installation going without errors, but X won't load upon init 5 or system reboot.

It stays blinking over and over trying to load the graphics driver but then it stays blank.

My system is Fedora 12 i386. It seems to come preloaded with some nouveau or nouveaufb video driver which even disables the default vesa and takes over.

Somehow it keeps interfering i guess with the nvidia driver and won't let it load.

Nvidia, any chance for an updated driver with new gcc and stuff so we don't run into trouble?

any ideas anybody? Thank you.
