Hi dr3w807,

that looks not good. OK, let's reset the configuration and make a fresh driver installation. First deinstall all nvidia relaten stuff - please deinstall all packages from the output of

Code:
yum list installed | grep nvidia
After that reboot the system. When the system is up again, make a backup of your xorg.conf and create a new one via:

Code:
cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup
Code:
system-config-display --reconfig
Additionally you have to reconfigure your keyboard layout.

Code:
system-config-keyboard
Reboot your system again. When it's up again, install livna's nvidia driver that fits to your kernel version and your system architecture.

Find out your kernel version and the architecture.

Code:
uname -mr
Install the nvidia driver. (The dependences will be resolved automatically)

Code:
yum -y install kmod-nvidia-%kernel_version%.fc8.%architecture%
For example:

Code:
yum -y install kmod-nvidia-2.6.24.3-12.fc8.i686
After that reboot your system and all should be OK.

Best regards,

Olli

Two 8500gt in a single system? Hm... I've never worked with two structurally identical graphics cards in a single system. You should remove one and look if it works with a single graphics card.

Best regards,

Olli

Hi dr3w807,

the nvidia related settings are missing in your configuration. You should try to reconfigure your xorg.conf with

Code:
nvidia-xconfig
(as root)

By way of comparison my configuration - GeForce 7800GT with kmod-nvidia-2.6.24.3-34.fc8.i686 on Fedora 8 (2.6.24.3-34.fc8 i686).

Code:
# Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "Default Layout"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
        InputDevice    "MX Rev" "CorePointer"
EndSection

Section "Files"
        ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
        ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
        Option      "AIGLX" "on"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "kbd"
        Option      "XkbModel" "pc105"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "de"
        Option      "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "MX Rev"
        Driver      "evdev"
        Option      "Phys" "usb-*/input0"
        Option      "Name" "Logitech USB Receiver"
        Option      "CorePointer"
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "nvidia"
        Option      "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
EndSection

        Identifier "Screen0"
