I have worked on fedora 10 and the installation of that to nvidia was simple
just install kmod-nvidia and reboot
than fedora 11 came out same story.
now fedora did some nouvau expiriments on fedora 12 and 13.
the howto on fedora 12 did work perfectly at that time at fedora 12
the howto does work fine on fedora 13 i installed and did run glxgears and nexuiz fine on one monitor
but on fedora 13 when i enable both monitors
glxgears and nexuiz (for testing) does not work anymore.
i did disable and enable nvidia-config-display and did so much more.
so on one monitor setting 3D is enabled.
but when i enable both monitors 3D does not run anymore.
Fedora 12 Nouveau + Nvidia Driver Solution
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 24, 2009
UPDATE: updated to include Fedora 13...
This is info that I've found to install the proprietary Nvidia driver in Fedora 12. After searching and searching this is the best I've found. I hope this helps someone out there that needs help with this.
If you use an Nvidia card in your system and install Fedora 12, Fedora will use the Nouveau driver by default. Follow these steps to disable the Nouveau driver and install the Nvidia proprietary driver.
-Download the latest Nvidia driver from their web site
-Drop to init 3 (CTRL + ALT + F2, login as root, run "init 3")
-Install the driver using:
NVIDIA Quadro and GnomeShell in Fedora 14
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 10, 2011
I would really appreciate some direction with an issue I am currently experiencing. Truthfully, I am unsure where to begin to resolve it, I also am not confident I am posting this in the correct forum.
I am running Fedora 14 on a Dell Latitude D620. It is not a powerful laptop, but meets my personal programming interests. From what I have read, the video card is pretty low end, and that my be the heart of the issue.
The video card is NVIDIA Quadro NVS 110M, and I used the package kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs, following the instructions found here:
It seemed to be quite successful, Compiz worked well when I enabled it. GLXGears was giving a fps that was on par with what I found online for the same card.
I decided to give gnome-shell a shot, and really like it. However, when I attempt to run it when hooked up to an external monitor, choosing Separate X Windows, gnome-shell fails to load after login. It see

I also posted this in the Fedora forum.
I've got no sound at all on my Macbook pro after installing Fedora 13. It seems that on Ubuntu 10.04 you have no problems with this generation of MBP, could anyone suggest how I could solve this issue?
Ubuntu vs Fedora LiveCD Nvidia
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 7, 2009
I would like to know why the following facts are the way they are:
Point of Reference
I have been using Feisty 7.04 for over two years. I have a GForce 6600 Nvidia card attached to a Viewsonic DVI monitor. After installation I only got 800x600 in resolution. I had to chase down the drivers directly from Nvidia and do a somewhat confusing install---cannot remember details now) to get it to work in the native 1680x1050. I also had to chase down a special driver for my Canon IP4000 and install it twice; once for each paper source and duplex was not available.
Now it is getting close to upgrade so I created LiveCDs for a few distros and am comparing Ubuntu Intrepid with Fedora 10. Fedora seems a little faster and less of a problem.
Results of quick test:
Fedora LiveCD automatically found my nvidia card and automaticaly set the resolution correctly.
I installed and tested the suggested driver for my Canon IP4000 and all features worked properly.
[SOLVED] Fedora Rawhide Nvidia problem
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 31, 2013
I am having an issue getting Fedora Rawhide working with my GTX 470. The nouveau driver works, but the performance is really slow, so I am trying to install the official Nvidia driver, but it is not working. I can install the Nvidia driver using either RPMFusion, or the one downloaded from their website, but after installation all I get when GDM tries to start is a black screen and a cursor in the shape of an X. I have disabled nouveau, but this does not solve the issue. I have also tried starting my session from the command line with startx, but the same problem occurs.
Here is the GDM log, that also appears to include the X11 log:
[SOLVED] Fedora 10 and Nvidia text splash
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 3, 2009
Installed Fedora 10 yesterday from a DVD that came with Linux Format mag, and mostly I've been very impressed. I'm less impressed though, with their handling of proprietary drivers. Obviously I'm aware of the Fedora mantra with regards proprietary drivers, but nevertheless I'm still surprised at their "head in the sand" approach. Other distros seem to handle this better.
Anyhoo, I managed to enable the Nvidia driver OK via extra repos, and can now get desktop effects, OpenGL settings etc, but I still only get the Commodore 64 bootsplash, rather than a proper graphical boot as many in the modern age would hope to see. Also, on shut down I just get garbled text instead of the splash again.
I have been on the Fedora forums, and found a reference to adding the option vga=318 to the grub conf, but this hasn't worked and I still get the circa 1980's progress bar etc.
Now I know the Ubuntu forums is the friendliest place on the net, so I'm sure someone here will be able to help!
nVidia Drivers in Fedora, which should I install?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 29, 2007
I am using Fedora, which I have never used an RPM based distro, only Gentoo and Apt based.
But should I install the nVidia driver from nVidia, yum, or a yum repo that isn't mentioned?

I have tried to install NVidia Drivers and instead of going to Fedora Forums I looked on Google. Now I can only get a command window form a black screen by ctrl+alt+f2.
