Description of problem:
I have installed the latest nvidia driver for the Quadro FX3400 card into a dual core operton XW9300 workstation. The system crashes after initializing the hardware. The only way to get the system to boot with to supply the mem=2GB on the boot command.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install Nvidia Quadro FX3400 card
2.Install latest driver for FX3400
ok. what kernel version are you running?
The kernel is:
Linux rdgdtrh20 2.6.9-22.ELsmp #1 SMP Mon Sep 19 18:00:54 EDT 2005 x86_64
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
There was nothing special done during the install. It's a basic, full install
of RHWS 4 Update 2.
ok. do me one favor, and try the latest release kernel 22.0.1.EL
In most cases when I've installed RedHat, I just use the CD's and things work
fine, so I'm not to experience with download kernels and such.
Is there a place where i can just find the kernel rpm to be installed? What
you know the download link?
WOuld you suggest that I update my entire system, via the redhat update over
the net to get the latest kernel?
ok. try 'up2date', and just select the kernel. it should be 22.0.1. thanks.
I have re-installed RH WS 4, Update 2. After starting with a clean install of
RH, I've used the up2date program to install a new kernel. Once the kernel was
installed, I also updated all the other applications.
After the sysetm was brough up2date, I installed the nvidia driver and have
been able to get everything to work properly.
This case may be closed.
excellent. glad to hear :)
