2013-02-10 10:41:20 -0500 asked a question Fedora 18 grub setting

I got Fedora 18 and Windows 7 installed on the same machine, and I want to change Default boot time from 3sec to 7sec also and the default start-up systems windows 7. I have used this commande :

gedit /etc/default/grub

And I have edited the file like this :

 GRUB_TIMEOUT=10
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="$(sed 's, release .*$,,g' /etc/system-release)"
GRUB_DEFAULT=”Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sda1″
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rd.lvm.lv=fedora/swap nomodeset rd.md=0 rd.dm=0 $([ -x /usr/sbin/rhcrashkernel-param ] && /usr/sbin/rhcrashkernel-param || :) vconsole.keymap=fr rd.luks=0 rd.lvm.lv=fedora/root rhgb quiet"
GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true"
GRUB_THEME="/boot/grub2/themes/system/theme.txt"

But it hasn't worked. Any one tell me what's the problem?

it seem you are trying to compile the proprietary nvidia driver from nvidia website.

you have prepare your system for compiling :

sudo yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers gcc

do a yum update to make sure you're on newest kernel release, better to not have to do this twice

sudo yum update

change default runlevel to multi-user (the old init 3)

sudo ln -fs /lib/systemd/system/multi-user.target /etc/systemd/system/default.target

reboot into the new kernel & runlevel

shutdown -r now

make sure Open source nouveau driver is blacklisted from starting on next reboot.

sudo egrep -i "blacklist\s*nouveau" /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf || echo "blacklist nouveau" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

move the nouveau module out of the default path so that we won't have it built into the new initramfs.

sudo mv /usr/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau.ko /usr/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau.ko.blacklist

move the old initramfs to a backup location. Not strictly necessary, but a good idea to keep backups IMO, feel free to skip this step.

sudo mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).nouveau.img

make the new initramfs.

sudo dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

reboot into new initramfs where nouveau won't be loaded.

shutdown -r now

cd to where you downloaded the NVIDIA driver. In my case, it was in my Downloads directory.

cd ~username/Downloads

make the file executable, and run it, follow onscreen instructions

chmod 700 NVIDIA-Linux-*.run
sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-*.run

If you're running any proprietary games (to include steam games) make sure to install the 32 bit compatibility drivers, and update the xorg.conf file when prompted.

when it is installed, change back to the default runlevel,

sudo ln -fs /lib/systemd/system/graphical.target /etc/systemd/system/default.target

and reboot

shutdown -r now

When your system comes back up, you should be at the graphical login screen. Log in, open a teminal, and run

nvidia-settings

however use the propietary nvidia drivers that provide fedora packed, Here is a good link for installing via RPMFusion. They are a great deal easier:

Hello, Some time when I want to execute some code or create new file I cant because of permission, so I got to switch to root Session evry time and it's really wast of time and pissing me off . So I'm wondering how to give my account all privilege.

Taking a guess here, but I am pretty sure that you also need to install the kernel-headers package as well.

Also, if you recently updated, you may have a different version of the kernel package running compared to kernel-devel one just installed. Try rebooting the machine, to make sure the most recent kernel installed is running and then try to run the nvidia installer again.

I have excuted 'yum install kernel-headers' and it tel me that's that's is already installed with last version. > yum install kernel-headers Modules complémentaires chargés : langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit Le paquet kernel-headers-3.7.5-201.fc18.x86_64 est déjà installé dans sa dernière version Rien à faire

I'm trying to install nvidia Driver (Geforce 525M). Bur i got this error :

    ./nvidia-installer

Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the 'kernel-source' or 'kernel-devel' RPM installed.  If you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the '--kernel-source-path' command line option.

I have installed kernel-Devel" with this commande :

yum install kernel-devel

And for kernel-source :

yumdownloader --source kernel

I can't resolve this problem.

I'm trying to build the nvidia Driver (Geforce 525M). But I got this error :

ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This is most likely

    because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source

    files.  Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files

    for your kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you

    have the 'kernel-source' rpm installed.  If you know the correct

    kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source

    path with the '--kernel-source-path' commandline option
