The latest nvidia up in testing (310-19) has dropped support for cards 7xxx and below. To keep supplying a non-free driver for those cards, the last used nvidia that supported those is now packaged as nvidia-304xx.Anyone on those kind of older cards, please test this version (you'll see a pretty clear warning in the nvidia update):sudo pacman -Syu
sudo pacman -S nvidia-304xxThis should

I had misread the wiki that I should use nvidia-304xx with GTX 770 instead of nvidia package.I installed nvidia, nvidia-utils and lib32-nvidia-utils.
Is nvidia C61 GeForce 6100 nForce 405 rev a2 in the same category as nvidia-304xx? The x86_64 machine I'm trying this on seems to hard lock the machine if I try to push it too much. Stellarium is enough to lock it up without any effort. I've tried nvidia-304xx and all it gives me is 1024x768. I clear out everything except nouveau and xf86-video-nouveau.
I have a Dell 3008WFP 30 inch monitor with native resolution of 2560*1600, Fedora 19 installed and a Nvidia
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK104 [GeForce GTX 760] (rev a1)
I have this driver installed
yum list installed | grep nvidia

On my desktop PC I'm running F19 with the rpmfusion nvidia driver. The PC is booted daily. Sometimes the boot goes smoothly, but more often than not it hangs before the GUI comes up. If I reboot into "multi-user target" (formerly known as runlevel 3) and then issue "startx", the GUI always comes up. This has been going on for several weeks.
