Thumbs up Re: Freezing Problems, Still Unresolved. (PLEASE anything)

My problem is now almost solved on this issue. 2 days running and no X crashes what so ever.
I'm using Fedora Core 2 and Geforce4 ti4400


Here's what I did :

-updated all what is to update/upgrade with yum.
-followed instructions that were found on web :
http://rpm.livna.org/

1. Add the following entries to /etc/yum.conf:
-----------------------------------------
[livna-stable]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
baseurl= http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/yum/stable
gpgcheck=1

2. Import the Livna.org GPG key in order to verify the digitally signed NVIDIA RPM packages.
rpm --import http://rpm.livna.org/RPM-LIVNA-GPG-KEY

3. Install the NVIDIA driver RPM and dependencies.
yum -y install kernel-module-nvidia-`uname -r`

4. Modify /etc/X11/XF86Config to use the NVIDIA driver.
/usr/sbin/nvidia-config-xfree86 enable

Restart the X Window System to use the NVIDIA driver.
-----------------------------------------

It needs kernel that is brought by fedora updates. I haven't tested with others.

It installs atm 6106 drivers but that doesn't bother me as long as X doesn't crash again. I hope this solves your problems.

Sad to say that this probably solves only redhat/fedora users prob. but please do report if other distros users solve the problem too.
