http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I just baught a Lenovo Ideapad y570 its a really good laptop and it has a nvidia gt 555m graphics card on it. I installed fedora 17 on it and I'm tryinng to get the graphics card to work. I tried installing the most recent driver with the right kernel from rpm fussion but it doesn't want to work. All I see is the log file on the display when it boots up. I then went straight to the nvidia website and installed the driver from there but the same thing happened. I also ran 'nvidia-xconfig' on both attempts but it didn't work. I got the default graphics up and working again but I can't figure out (HowTos)
