    Ok, actualy fedora was running but you had an additional problem with your display, if you remove "quiet rhgb" from your boot string you will see that fedora boots but is still choking on the xorg.conf settings when it tries to start X.

    I meant for you to use the same NVidia driver from nvidia , once this is installed then run "system-config-display --reconfig" from init 3, set up your monitor for display and resoluotion
    exit from system-config-display and check manually that it did not screw up your nvidia settings in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    The gcc that is included with fedora is fine, no need to compile the nvidia stuff outside of the script it self. there was also no reason to reload,the problem is with X, It looks like fedora is hung but it just cant start X , X is what gives you the graphical boot but if the config is wrong then it cant display, had you tried to get access from the network the machine would be there.

    Ok now I have followed your instructions and removed rhgb quiet from the command line when booting up,

    Then I ran then x-server did choke on loading and its ran the display config for me.

    I changed to the approprite settings

    Then Fedora loaded and I went to check if the settings had been changed in /etc/X11/xorg.conf and they had been changed

    So every time I noot up I have to remove rhgb quite just to get into xerver

    Help!

    no if your X works after bootup now it will be ok to leave rhgb quiet there, or edit /etc/grub.conf to remove permanently


    So is what your saying is that you now have an xorg.conf file that sets the proper driver "nvidia" instead of "nv" and your monitor is set up properly and x displays when at run level 5?

    Thank you every body for your help I HAVE NVIDIA WORKING
    My first Linux hurdle jumped with sucess

    My solution was as follows
    Since I became a bit lost I decided to reinstall Fedora and start fresh!

    Login as root to text console CTRL+ALT+F2
    Type the command

    # init 3

    # sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run

    EDIT /etc/X11/xorg.conf as follows

    Section "Module"
    add (if not already there):
    Load "glx"
    comment out (add # in front of them, if they are there):
    #Load "dri"
    #Load "GLcore"

    ("glx" and "dri" were there for me, "GLcore" was not)

    Section "Device"
    change from:
    Driver "nv"
    to:
    Driver "nvidia"

    Then the command as root:

    # modprobe nvidia
    # cp -a /dev/nvidia* /etc/udev/devices
    # chown root.root /etc/udev/devices/nvidia*
    # init 5

    Then rebooted the computer and smile

    The help came from http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...3.shtml#nvidia
    Thank you very much!

    Again thank you all who posted to this thread I am sure you were aware of this solution I was just not explaining the problem to you! Thank you!
