Description of problem:
hi, i dont know if this is the right place. i couldnt find any field related to nvidia, kmod, nouveau or graphics. so filing it under general distribution.
Please, move (or tell me where to move) it into the proper section if this is not the right place.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
NVIDIA Driver Version: 195.36.24
Steps to Reproduce:
1. disable the nouveau driver.
2. install the kmod driver
3. update to the latest version kernel 2.6.33.xxxx
nvidia-xconfig.i686 works but 3D graphics cant be enabled. complains of absence of driver; (as kmod-nvidia doesnt load at startup)
kmod-nvidia should load properly
seems like some bug in Python. reinstalled python and gcc. no improvement.
That sure is sad, but the nvidia driver isn't something we're responsible for.
