Are you, by any chance, using nvidia proprietary driver from rpmfusion?
Comment 2 Dave P 2013-09-23 11:48:50 EDT
Nvidia GEforce GT640. 

Does that make a difference pls?

Comment 3 Epifanov Ivan 2013-09-23 11:55:21 EDT
Think is, kernel module for proprietary nvidia driver not available in rpmfusion at this moment.
Can you please provide output of
rpm -qa | grep nvidia
Comment 4 Dave P 2013-09-23 12:01:08 EDT
]# rpm -qa | grep nvidia

Comment 5 Epifanov Ivan 2013-09-23 14:18:11 EDT
Yeah. ok. Rpmfusion experiencing problems with buildsystem at the moment.
In the meantime you can use akmod from here http://www.forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=294091 (or, i can build kmod for 304xx and 3.11.1 kernel.)
Also, it's kinda strange that you have both kmod and akmod.

Anyway, this should be directed to rpmfusion bugzilla, as fedora doesn't provide nor supports proprietary drivers.
Comment 6 Dave P 2013-09-24 12:35:14 EDT
OK, Thanks Ivan. 
  I probably have akmod and kmod because of my history?

Thanks for the redirect.   

I think it might be easier to wait for rpmfusion to catch up?

Comment 7 Epifanov Ivan 2013-09-24 16:37:50 EDT
Well, i don't know how long it will take for rpmfusion to catch up. You can monitor it here, i guess: https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2956

By the way, packages on fedoraforum provided by one of rpmfusion maintainers, so it's kinda safe to install (and will update normally, when rpmfusion resumes normal operation), providing, of course, you are using akmod.
Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 14:56:19 EST
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 9 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-17 12:18:04 EST
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
