Default Fedora 8 preupgrade to 9

http://www.howtoforge.com/upgrading-...ith-preupgrade

I am running fc8 with livna and nivida drivers.

After:

Code:
yum install preupgrade
preupgrade
I rebooted and anaconda went into gfx mode and my monitor reports 'out of range'.

I tried removing all packages with nivida and livna via:

Code:
 rpm -qa|grep livna
 rpm -qa|grep nvidia
 rpm -e ....
Then I tried:

Code:
rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-9.rpm => fedora-release >= 9 is needed by livna-release-9-1.noarch

Rebooting still puts me in a state where I can't view the screen...

I updated from the iso via txt mode to get around this.

However, now in fc9 I can't seem to install fc9 nvidia drivers.

Code:
yum search kmod-nvidia
Lists only fc8 packages and my repolist only refers to fc9 sources?

There are no NVidia drivers for Fedora 9 yet...

Hi,

NVIDIA drivers are now available (livna).

Best regards,

Olli
