Default Re: Error on nvidia module insertion

That worked great, though I didn't need to rebuild the initramfs image. I just appended "rdblacklist=nouveau" to my kernel parameters in /boot/grub/menu.lst.

It seems nouveau is loaded early at boot time and prevents the nvidia driver from being used by the X server later on.

Now that that is fixed, no driver is loaded at boot time: I have no fancy fedora startup splash screen. Is there any way to make the kernel load the nvidia driver when booting, or does that require me to recompile the kernel?

By the way, when I get a newer kernel, can I simply compile the driver against that kernel and install it or do I have to uninstall the old one first? When I get an updated driver, can I just install it over the old one as well?

In any way, thanks!
