It's not this. It's the other.
The first I forgot to exit X, the second time I did exit.

I don't understand which 'other' you're referring to as the only error is the one I quoted.

Right, and in your installer log the error was what I quoted earlier. If that's not the case, then please attach the installer log for review.

Did you stop X?

thanks,
Lonni

Hi again

The log message it IS
ERROR: You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing.
For further details, please see the section INSTALLING THE NVIDIA DRIVER
in the README available on the Linux driver download page at
www.nvidia.com.


Both in the installation and in the log! Strange? YES

I made another try and this time the driver installed, BUT when I star the computer on linux, the big NVidia logo appears, then there are images "Loading Fedora blah blah blah"
Than Nvidia Logo appears again and the screen gets like this:

http://www.inf.ufsc.br/~csd/DSC00361.JPG
http://www.inf.ufsc.br/~csd/DSC00360.JPG

ps. sorry about the size I don't have any image editor right here, now.

After trying MANY times I manage to start with no problems and changed the initab to load in init 3. Than I can make init 5 and it works great.

But when I logoff or shutdown the computer that "thing" I showed in the photos happens.

I really hope my explanation helps.

I'm not sure that I understand the problem you're reporting, but it sounds like a new/different problem than what you originally reported. You should probably start a new thread, with details of how to reproduce the problem and an nvidia-bug-report.log.

thanks,
Lonni
