Question Booting to the "f1" display in fc6

I've installed the 9626 nvidia driver on FC6, kernel 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 SMP x86_64.

The problem is that on boot, I end up in the "f1" text display and need to press ctrl-alt-f7 to get to the graphical login screen. When I uninstall the nvidia drivers, everything works as it is supposed to.

I think its more a nvidida installer issue than a problem with the actual dirver, but has anyone seen this? Anyone know how to fix it?

Default Re: Booting to the "f1" display in fc6

I face the same problem...
Start at level 5, but result in a text login screen... T_T
Finally, I install kmod-nvidia, and everything goes well...

Well, tho everything goes well now, I still want to use the driver from nvidia, not the modified driver(kmod-nvidia)...Cause the kmod-nvidia driver does not update the develop-headers(gl.h glu.h glx.h glext.h..)

Does anyone got the ideas to fix this problem?
Maybe...it was FC6's fault, not the driver?
