    Exclamation NVidia drivers Fedora 9


    Hello!, I'm using Fedora 9 Sulphur (x86_64 - kernel 2.6.25-14.fc9). I have an GeForce 6100 on board. I have a LG L1920P Monitor (LCD). I'm using a generic driver (nv) with a resolution 1280x1024. The resolution is supported by my monitor. It runs perfectly.

    Now, I have installed the nvidia driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-173.14.12-pkg2.run) downloaded from Welcome to NVIDIA - World Leader in Visual Computing Technologies and I have used nvidia-xconfig to config my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

    The problem is when I start X the screen is black with a blue line on the top. I move the mouse to the top and I can see a part of the pointer in the line. I press Ctrl + Alt + + or - to change the resolution and I found the problem is when I use the 1280x1024 resolution because with 1024x768 and 800x600 it runs correctly.

    I have the same problem on Mandriva 2007 Spring.

    Can someone help me?

    Thanks!

    You could try an older version of the driver.
    Linux AMD64 Display Driver Archi

    Or you could try the latest Beta version of the driver.
    Linux x64 (AMD64/EM64T)
