http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi all, I just updated to F12 from F10 (did a clean install though) after updating and getting a new kernel I'm having some problems. The two kernels that I've got are: 2.6.31.6-127.fc12.i686 2.6.31.6-145.fc12.i686 I'm typing this from the top one which still works but has massive graphics issues, I tried to install my graphics drivers (for Nvidia Geforce 7600GT) using: Code: su - yum --enablerepo=rp*g install akmod-nvidia \ xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.x86_64 But it seems not to have worked. glxgears gives me about 90 fps which is actually worse than before I tried to install the drivers! When I try to boot using the other Kernel I get to the blue screen where the Fedora logo turns white (the one just before the log in screen) but I never actually get to the log in screen all I get after the Fedora logo screen is a black screen with a blinking "_" in white at the top left. I've tried leaving it for half an hour but it doesn't do anything. All I can do is restart the computer and boot using this kernel. Any ideas what the problem is and how to fix it? Many thanks in advance! (HowTos)
