New kernels and nVidia drivers

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – After playing around on my F17 test installation with new kernels and nVidia drivers, I have discovered that installing a binary nVidia driver from nVidia works with a new-ish kernel (one without akmod or kmod support), and everything runs fine. The nVidia installation goes smoothly, and there are no issues. If, however, I want to install a new kernel when there is no akmod or kmod available for the binary nVidia driver, I first have to uninstall the nVidia driver (including de-blacklisting of nouveau in /etc/modprobe.d), then install the kernel, and then go through installation of the bin (HowTos)
