Description of problem:
I installed the Nvidia Drivers with the downloaded file from
Nvidia.com, Compiled it the usual way. Once drivers were installed i
changed the driver from nv to Nvidia and rebooted.
Once rebooted the system locked and could not get to a console, I
could not ssh to my pc either so was forced to do a hard reboot and
used the cd to enter in to rescue mode to restore the XFree86 file.
Then rebooted and now is working without the Nvidia driver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fedora core test2
2. enter in to init 1 to go to single user mode
3. sh NVidia............. Driver file
4. vi /etc/X11/XFree86...........
5. Change from NV to nvidia
7. System Lock and reboot to rescue mode to recover
Actual Results: The X failed to start and locked the system
Expected Results: X should have used the new Nvidia Kernel Moduels
and started normally
