I previously have been running the nVidia driver
from nVidia's website: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-169.12-pkg1.run
on RPM forge was exciting, as we now have an RPM.
So, after installing it and rebooting, I
get a blank screen and two blinking lights on
my keyboard: Cap Locks and Scroll Lock
Dropping to "init 3" (edited inittab with
my rescue disk), I "rpm -e" the rpm and reinstalled
it. Same symptom.
Rebooting, and "rpm -e" the RPM and reinstalling
nVidia's driver corrected the problem.
Rats! I was looking forward to using the RPM.
