    Hi dr3w807,

    when I looked around a bit I found out that some 8500GT cards are not recognized by the actual nvidia driver (distribution independent). Maybe you have to wait for the next driver release.

    Best regards,

    Olli

    That really sucks, do you know when the next release is?

    Alas I have once again failed. I just updated my kernel and the nvidia package to no avail. What should I do now?

    Hi dr3w807,

    that was not the new driver - it was only a new package of the existing driver for the new kernel. The new driver will be version 171.XX.

    Best regards,

    Olli

    Ah, well I guess I was just a little to hasty, thanks for the info, once again I'll try to be patient.

    Hi dr3w807,

    because a new kernel came out (2.6.24.4-64.fc8).
