I followed the instructions and it seemed to install correctly but when I try to start telinet 5 the monitor just goes black, so I have to put the driver back to nv. I also tried the update from rpm.livna.org but get the following error message Error: Missing Dependency: nvidia-glx = 0:1.0.7174 is needed by package kernel-module-nvidia-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 .

I have been trying to update the graphic card drivers for two days now.

thanks

Most of those driver steps in that Fedora Faq guide are no longer needed for Fedora Core 4. Installing the drivers on a FC4 box is incredibly easy and it should work by simply:

init 3
sh <nvidia-package-name>
modprobe nvidia (generally its not needed with FC4 but you can do it anyways)

cd /etc/X11/xorg.conf
vim xorg.conf (and then change around DRI and the video devices, etc....)

OR

nvidia-xconfig (new nvidia tool to modify your config automatically

reboot

That should pretty much have you set for a FC4 NVIDIA install.

thanks for all your help, finally got it to work. The only thing I did this time differently was to use nvidia-xconfig,

cheers
