    After I install the NVIDIA drivers my computer wont boot


    After I install the NVIDIA drivers my computer hangs after detecting hardware.
    Im sure I know how to get my computer to boot without the drivers but how do I get it to boot with the drivers. I would really like to get these installed so I can use 3D applications with my linux distro.

    Applied the patches but it still hangs. And If I install the kernel update it hangs even with vesa chosen in xorg. Im at a loss I can get my system to boot but I would like to use the lates kernel and also have 3D acceleration.
    Im using the nforce 2 chipset could this be the overall problem.

    thanx for your help

    Another thing you could try that has worked in many cases for some others is to just drop back to the previous driver, 6111. You can find it here...

    try turning off kudzu

    you can try to turn off kudzu, you can do this by
    chkconfig kudzu off
    and then see if it still hangs.
