Default Re: Fedora Core 2: Solution without compiling kernel

I can verify that this indeed works. Here was my situation: I intalled the NVidia drivers, and experienced the resulting system hang. I changed my xorg.conf back to nv to fallback to the default driver. Then I downloaded the rpm, unzipped it and installed it via

rpm -U

Upon restart the driver still didn't work, but the system noticed this time that it couldn't start the x server. I was glad it wasn't a hard crash, and tried the reinstall the driver. So I did and it works. GLX gears reports 4184 fps on my Athon XP1700 and 5600 ultra.

One question. This is the first time I've run the X server. Are there any operational differences between xorg.conf and XF86Config, or anywhere else?
