Description of problem:
I installed the NVIDIA driver normally and wanted to start X. He gave
me the error "/dev/nvidiactl: permissions to restrictive".
So I read the NVIDIA Readme and changed the
/etc/security/console.perms and erased every line related to <dri>.
Then I changed the permissions back to 0666 and chown root and tried
again to launch X.
The same problem: permissions to restrictive.
is there a workaround or another file in Fedora I need to change ?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
latest nvidia driver
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install NVIDIA driver
2. edit XF86Config
3. start X
Actual Results: black screen and error message
Expected Results: see the NVIDIA logo and the login screen
