Default Re: Install problem :: FC6 64 bits & 7900Gs.

Hi gmp, I did all that you explain and it works fine. I'm now running the nvidia 8776 but at the end of the installation the nvidia-xconfig fails complaining:
Warning: unable to determine corepointer; will rely on X server's built-in default configuration.

What's this? thx in advance.

pd: sorry for my english, i'm spanish

Thanks a lot for your great support G ! it give me some strength back !

In fact i follow your process and it works perfectly, the kernell is now build and i've install the 32 bit lib. i choose to change xconf at reboot with nvidia parameter and i got this error :

WARNING: Unable to determine CorePointer; will rely on X server's built-in default configuration.

At the reboot , i've got the same problem than with the livna-driver. I don't have the logo at startup , i don't have the nvidia control menu. I've just in System Utility the NVIDIA X server Settings, but i can't do anything from it. My xconf.org doesn't mention any nvidia driver ... here it is :

# Xorg configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "kbd"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "fr"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "vesa"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
EndSubSection
EndSection

Well i'm afraid linux has decided to make me pay the highest price for using him. But i won't give up this time. Your 100% true the VFX buisnnes is in the Linux/Unix world. I believe you when you'r talking about a true OS. But lot of frustration and desillusion to discover it !

best regards

S.K

gmp: after step 16, the installer-script om my x86_64 still ends with the error-message "Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module."
Now I wondering what this "YOU SHOULD INSTALL the 32-bit compatibilty libraries." means.
After two days working to get the nvidia-driver installed I'm getting desperate.

sybren , the lib 32 installation message , come after the kernel building ! at this time you'r stuck with my previous probleme , the Unable to build kernel Message.

By the way it is strange cause this pb was resolve for me with config.h to autoconfig.h modification !

Check that your nv-linux.h is correctly configure

GLuck !

If you're experiencing problems installing the driver, then please post the installer log.

SebKaine and others: thanks! After
rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.f6.i686.rpm
the installation of the driver finally succeeded on my x86_64 system

Nevertheless: how logical is it to have to install the 32-bit kernel on an x86_64-system to install a driver prepared for the x86_64? Have I missed this in the official installation-instructions?
