Default Fedora FC-5 x86_64 installation problems (GLcore and nvidia modules)

Using Fedora FC-5 with kernal 2.6.16-1.2080_FC5.

Installation of NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8756-pkg2.run appears to succeed
(nvidia-installer.log is attached) but the file /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/libGLcore.so
that was installed from xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.0.1-8.x86_64.rpm disappears during the nVidia driver installation.

This leads to the error loading module glx (sub module glCore not found) that is reported in the attached Xorg.0.log file.

The glCore error goes away if the xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.0.1-8 package is forcibly re-installed, but the missing "nvidia" module problem remains.

Based on your xorg.conf, it doesn't look like the nvidia driver was (correctly) installed. Please generate and post an nvidia-bug-report.log.

Thanks,

I found something similar - it looks like FC5 or Xorg7 (don't know which) has changed the default location where it expects to find the modules.

The NVIDIA installer puts the modules in /usr/X11R6/lib, but xorg looks for them in /usr/lib/xorg/modules

There's an installer option to specify where the modules should go, I can't remember it exactly, but run ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8756-pkg1.run.bin -A and it will list all the options.

Use /usr/lib/xorg/modules as the modules directory.

mrkh is right; the modules were installed in the wrong place.

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0.8756-pkg2.run -a --x-module-path=/usr/lib64/xorg/modules

put files where they could be found.

Definite progress; I need now to work on the xorg.conf file, but it looks like the
nVidia modules are loading and initializing correctly.

Installing the xorg-server-x11-sdk RPM would fix this problem without any nvidia driver install time options. Note that this topic has been discussed already elsewhere on this forum.

Thanks,
