Exclamation RmInitAdapter failed using Nvidia 190.40 with a GeForce 210

card: PNY Technologies GeForce 210 512MB DDR2 PCIe 2.0 x16 Graphics Card
condition: brand new from store
what works: text mode, vesa
what doesn't work: nouveau, nvidia
apparent problem: driver cannot initialize card
connection: PCIe to board, VGA to LCD
distribution: Fedora 12 (i386)

Just as an FYI, I only have about 5 days to get this working, if I can't, I need to return it to the store and get another, or at least verify that it works completely in Windows. I am willing to work with anyone interested to get it working however.

Your kernel is running out of vmalloc space. Please see the section in the README that describes this kernel problem and how to resolve it.

Thank you, I don't know how comes I had missed that error message.

For anyone who finds this later, the solution was adding

vmalloc=192MB

to my kernel parameters in GRUB
