Default 8600GT not recognized by any drivers with Fedora 11 (2.6.29 kernel)

Tried to upgrade from Fedora 10 to 11 but couldn't get the driver 185.18.14 to compile. I tried older versions, same error. Basically, it appears not to recognize the GPU (PCI ID: 10de:0407). This seems odd since I had the same driver working fine in Fedora 10 with 2.6.27 kernel. Help please. I've already been forced to do a clean install and I get the same issue.

I should also note that I get the same thing in dmesg when I tried to use the precompiled binaries from the repos.

Try blacklisting the nouveau driver.

Check the log. It says the gpu is not compatible the driver. I tried installing with binaries using the instructions. Same error in dmesg. Kernel/driver issue?

Please attach an nvidia-bug-report.log file or the output of `lspci -vxxx` if the `nvidia-bug-report.sh` script is not installed on your system. My guess is you're seeing (one of) the problem(s) discussed in these threads: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=133129, http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show....php?p=2021773.

Thanks, zander. From what I make out in the other thread, this is just sit and wait for kernel modifications?

@shocksofmighty: you may want to check if the Fedora developers are aware of the problem, or else file a bug in their database; there isn't much the driver can do to correct this problem (we'll add more sanity checks for future driver releases, but we won't attempt to fix up kernel state, etc.).
