'm trying to install the NVIDIA drivers on Fedora Core 5. I've updated it to the lattest kernel etc made sure i've got all the development sources etc and installed the driver which compleated ok. I've installed the software which I downloaded off the NVIDIA site and it all installed ok but when I start X I get the following error:

dlopen: /usr/lib/tls/libnvidia-tls.so.1: cannot restore segment prot aft
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 7)
(EE) dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.so: cannot restore segm
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.so
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (loader failed, 7)
(EE) No drivers available

I've hunted around forums and tried a couple of things but it still doesn't work Oh and it was NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8762-pkg1.run which I installed. BTW its an alienware laptop with a Quattro GO card.

Help!

For FC5 you can install the kmod-nvidia module which contains nVidia driver.. do:

# yum install kmod-nvidia

Sure, it was modified by the NVIDIA config proggy which seemed to work ok:

Hi,

If you are sure that you have installed the nvidia driver correctly, check your SELinux.

1) If you do not wish to use SELinux enforcement, you can disable SELinux enforcement by running "setenforce 0" before starting X, or add "selinux=0" to the end of the 'kernel' line in /etc/grub.conf and reboot.

2) If you wish to use SELinux enforcement, then you will need to change the security context of the NVIDIA X driver and server-side NVIDIA GLX extension. On 32 bit (x86) installations, this can be accomplished with the following commands:
# chcon -t texrel_shlib_t /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.so
# chcon -t texrel_shlib_t /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so.1.0.8762

If it doesn't work, try to make sure that you have these:
# yum install kernel-devel xorg-x11-server-sdk pkgconfig
# yum update
# init 6

and run the nvidia installer again.

Please read this:
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-test-list/2006-February/msg01565.html
and then follow this excelent walk through on how to properly install nVIDIA video driver
kernel module that mach your kernel:
http://www.stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_5_installation_notes.html#nVidia


Also make sure first  to UNINSTALL original nVIDIA driver by running the same
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8762-pkg1.run script .

goog luck

solved, the problem was that I hadn't set: setenforce 0  I did do it first time and it didn't work but I didn't realize that X was using a different config file at the time.

Thanks for the help tho!

Well NVIDIA is v picky about kernel patch level
but ne ways
If you have an smp kernel make sure you use and smp driver(SMP=Symmetric MultiProcessor i.e Dual core prrocessor)
on the other hand remove all the nvidia drivers you have installed so far and follow these instructions
Please use an Nvidia driver with release 1.0.8756 or newer.

Please update your kernel to release 2.6.16-1.2080 or newer.
Either 'yum update kernel' or manually with FC5 Updates.
The default Fedora Core 5 kernel has a bug with respect to binary drivers.

Setup Livna Repository
[root@charon ~]# rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-5.rpm

[root@charon ~]# rpm --import http://rpm.livna.org/RPM-LIVNA-GPG-KEY

Note Other than for drivers there can be some problems with the Livna repository,
hence I disable it by default:

[root@charon ~]# cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
[root@charon yum.repos.d]# mv livna.repo livna.repo.bkp
[root@charon yum.repos.d]# sed 's/enabled=1/enabled=0/' livna.repo.bkp > livna.repo

Install the nvidia driver through Livna:

[root@charon ~]# yum --enablerepo livna install kmod-nvidia

Then simply log out completely of Gnome or KDE and the Nvidia driver should load.
Test by running: '/usr/bin/glxgears' (included in the glx-utils RPM package).

Note on Livna

There are many possibilities that Livna will not work for you. Especially if your
kernel is modified, not from Fedora Updates, or much older.

Users without YUM

Download the GPG Key and run:
[root@charon ~]# rpm --import RPM-LIVNA-GPG-KEY

Navigate to http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/5/ and select your architecture: i386, x86_64 or ppc.
You will need 2 components: xorg driver and nvidia kernel module:

For xorg driver, select the one matching the latest Nvidia driver (1.0.8756)
ex: xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-1.0.8756-1.lvn5

For nvidia kernel driver you MUST MATCH YOUR KERNEL
Use the uname command for the proper match.

For example:
[root@charon ~]# uname -rm
2.6.16-1.2080_FC5 i686
Selected: kmod-nvidia-1.0.8756-1.2.6.16_1.2080_FC5.i686.rpm

Install both files at the same time:
[root@charon fc5]# rpm -ivh kmod-nvidia-1.0.8756-1.2.6.16_1.2080_FC5.i686.rpm \
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-1.0.8756-1.lvn5.i386.rpm

(If you had a previous version of these files before, upgrade with 'rpm -Uvh' instead)

SELinux users

Make the following changes to allow for the Nvidia driver and libraries to work properly:

[root@charon fc5]# setsebool -P allow_execstack=1
[root@charon fc5]# setsebool -P allow_execmod=1

The exact specific changes needed for Nvidia libraries can be found on nvnews.net.

I clain no credit or liablity for the istructions:) I found them from link below for my own sytem
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-fc5.html
and they  work  :)
