Default X fails to start after card upgrade

Hello,

having difficulty getting X to start after upgrading to 9800 gt

I've tried 190.42, and a few variations of the 185 series

all attempts have failed, I've tried running the uninstall option of nv installer as well.

error logs all report unable to locate device.


This is a m2n4 sli asus m/b running in single card mode. fwiw

Running Fedora F11 on Kernel 2.6.30.9-90 and Gnome 2.26.3

the previous card was a 6800 ultra and had no issues when installing drivers

You need to increase vmalloc. Look in the Nvidia driver README explains how to fix this: http://http.download.nvidia.com/XFre...hapter-09.html

well, that was a painless fix,
I randomly chose 256M, or double the default 128M
With 4 gig system memory, I can afford to loose 128mb
I doubt that it will be a performance issue

thank you.
