Description Carl Davis 2004-11-12 15:15:17 EST
Description of problem:

I have an FX 5200 video card.  I downloaded the drivers from
www.nvidia.com (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run) and used their gui
to compile and install.  Everything worked great.  However each time I
reboot the machine, the drivers become corrupt, lost, ?, etc. and I
have to run the gui again and recompile the driver.  After
recompiling, startx works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Reboot machine
Actual results:

Have to reinstall the nvidia drivers

Expected results:

should be able to startx without having to recompile drivers each time
I reboot

Additional info:

Let me know what other info may be relevant

This bug may well be resolved invalid because the nvidia binary
drivers are nothing to do with Red Hat. However from reading the
mailing lists people have been suggesting reading the bottom of this
page http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/udev/
