http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I've had a working desktop even running compiz just before I updated today. Anyway, after the reboot which was required after my update, I got a notification in the boot message which says: Code: Checking for module nvidia.ko:                                [FAILED] nvidia.ko for kernel 2.6.30-9-96.fc11.x86_64 was not found.  [WARNING] The nvidia driver will not be enabled until one is found.    [WARNING] I continued logging in and got a white screen (most likely brought by compiz without the nvidia drivers). I hit terminal and disabled compiz then tried to see how nvidia is doing. Here's what I got from nvidia-xconfig: Code: Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf". Backed up file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' as '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup' New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' and finally here's what /etc/X11/xorg.conf contains: Code: # Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display Section "ServerLayout"         Identifier    "Default Layout"         Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0         InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"         InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer" EndSection Section "Files"         ModulePath  "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers"         ModulePath  "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules" EndSection Section "ServerFlags"         Option            "AIGLX" "on"         Option            "Xinerama" "0" EndSection Section "InputDevice"     # generated from data in "/etc/sysconfig/keyboard"         Identifier  "Keyboard0"         Driver      "kbd"         Option            "XkbLayout" "us"         Option            "XkbModel" "pc105" EndSection Section "InputDevice"     # generated from default         Identifier  "Mouse0"         Driver      "mouse"         Option            "Protocol" "auto"         Option            "Device" "/dev/input/mice"         Option            "Emulate3Buttons" "no"         Option            "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" EndSection Section "Monitor"         Identifier  "Monitor0"         VendorName  "Unknown"         ModelName    "AOC 5En"         HorizSync    30.0 - 54.0         VertRefresh  50.0 - 120.0 EndSection Section "Device"         Identifier  "Videocard0"         Driver      "vesa" EndSection Section "Device"         Identifier  "Device0"         Driver      "vesa"         VendorName  "NVIDIA Corporation"         BoardName  "GeForce 7300 GS" EndSection Section "Screen"         Identifier "Default Screen"         Device    "Videocard0"         Monitor    "Monitor0" EndSection Section "Screen"         Identifier "Screen0"         Device    "Device0"         Monitor    "Monitor0"         DefaultDepth    24         Option            "TwinView" "0"         Option            "TwinViewXineramaInfoOrder" "CRT-0"         Option            "metamodes" "1024x768 +0+0"         SubSection "Display"                 Depth    24         EndSubSection EndSection Section "Extensions"         Option            "Composite" "Enable" EndSection Section "Files"     ModulePath  "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"     ModulePath  "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers"     ModulePath  "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules" EndSection How do i fix this?
