Instalar Driver Nvidia en Fendora 16





This is guide, howto install nVidia proprietary drivers on Fedora 16 and disable Nouveau driver. This guide works with GeForce 6/7/8/9/200/300 series cards.

Once again Fedora 16 nVidia driver installation is not much different from previous Fedora versions. I have tested this guide with a couple computers, so let me know, if you have some problems.



Install nVidia proprietary drivers on Fedora 16 “Verne” and disable the nouveau driver



1. Change root user
su -
## OR ##
sudo -i




2. Make sure that you are running latest kernel
If not then update kernel and reboot

yum update kernel*
reboot




3. Add RPMFusion Repositories (Free and Non-Free)

32-bit and 64-bit

rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm




4. Install nVidia proprietary drivers for GeForce 6/7/8/9/200/300/400/500 series cards

Select akmod, kmod or kmod-PAE from following.

akmod-nvidia

yum install akmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs

or

kmod-nvidia

yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs

or

kmod-nvidia-PAE and PAE-kernel devel

yum install kernel-PAE-devel kmod-nvidia-PAE

kmod is good option and easy way avoid problems on kernel updates and is best and only option if you use:

self-compiled kernel
older Fedora kernel
quickly changing kernels from updates-testing/rawhide
Full spec of kmod and akmod differences, check this.



5. Remove / disable nouveau drivers from kernel initramfs

mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nouveau.img
dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)




6. All is done and then just reboot

reboot
