Nvidia is not working

January 5, 2009

yeah … sometimes kmod-nvidia conflicts with other packages

so you can’t install it directly

even when you go to nvidia site and try to install it to your linux, you’ll be disappointed because compiz and other 3d effects won’t work perfectly

so you’ll have to install the “akmod-nvidia” package

first, know what’s your kernel version by typing:

#uname -r

then install nvidia

for redhat based:

#yum install akmod-nvidia-#kernel number

in ubuntu:

apt-get install akmod-nvidia-#kernel number

note that the bold words are comments

you can try using:

yum install akmod-nvidia-$(uname -r)

instead of the two lines above (but i didn’t test this one)
