Revision history [back]

I had the same issue, but I re-installed Fedora 19. When I installed either kmod-nvidia-304xx or akmod-nvidia-304xx, I would get an error that the nvidia.so could not be found. The GUI would just flash then go away.

I checked to make sure the nouveau driver was being blacklisted etc... I also ran "akmods --kernels uname -r" which gave me a huge clue. It told me that it could not find the kernel sources in order to build the driver.

I then ran "yum install kernel-devel" and then re-ran "akmods --kernels uname -r" which then built/installed the nvidia driver.

I then ran "modprobe nvidia" and it loaded the module without error.

I think the akmod and kmod RPMS should both require that kernel-devel should be installed for the kernel that you are using. That would save everyone a lot of time.

Hope this helps.
