I just noticed realcrypt doesn't seem to be in the fedora 21
version of the rpmfusion repos. Is it no longer maintained
or something? I couldn't seem to find any mention in the
I grabbed the fedora 20 source rpm and built from that
which seems to work OK.
I'm trying to install the NVidia packages but yum seems to be unable to
connect to mirrors.rpmfusion.org right now. I've done some basic
troubleshooting and have determined that it's possibly not an issue on my
end. I filed https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3521 but
thought I'd report it here to get extra eyes on the issue.
Is anyone else experiencing this issue or Is it just me?
I can't seem to get anything to work that needs any kind of
3D support with my GTX 750 Ti card and nvidia binary drivers
from rpmfusion and fedora 21 64 bit.
I followed the instructions for installing from the web page
at http://rpmfusion.org/Howto/nVidia and 2D certainly works
(which is more than it does with nouveau), but no 3d.
I've gathered all the information I could think of and
stashed it on this web page:
The most likely way I could have broken something is by
installing some rpm I shouldn't be installing (because I tend
to copy the list of rpms from the old fedora and install
the newer versions of the same rpm names in the new fedora),
but I don't have any idea what rpms might cause a problem that way.
I don't even know for sure that maxwell cards are supposed to
be fully working in fedora yet :-).
Anyone have any ideas, or can confirm that it just don't work yet?
I've spent the last week suffering over trying to configure my two 4K
dell up3214q monitors to work properly with my nvidia quadro k2200 card.
The hardware works fine, but the dual tiling mode which is common with
high end 4k displays throws the linux display software into a tizzy. In
any case, as I was generating xorg.conf file after another, I noticed a
small issue. The nvidia X server Setting GUI generates an xorg.conf file
which has the following files section....
Now the nvidia files I install from rpmfusion repository generate the
[adler@office01 ~]$ more /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-nvidia.conf
#This file is provided by xorg-x11-drv-nvidia
#Do not edit
which has its own "Files" section. So when I go to start the x server it
bombs because it looks like the x server picks up the Files section in
the xorg.conf file and ignores the files section specified in the
xorg.conf.d directory. So my work around was to add the two modulepath
directives into the primary /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
Before I messed around with trying to get my 4k monitors working, I just
downloaded the nvidia drivers from rpmfusion and all worked fine (at
least I thought it did) I noticed I was having font problems in my web
browser (firefox) especially when I used the <ctrl>-<scroll button> to
execute the zoom in/zoom out function in firefox to enlarge the fonts.
The font sizes got all whacky I and I just thought it was a broken
browser issue. But once I configured the xorg.conf file in /etc/X11,
generated from the NVIDIA X Settings GUI and added the two modulepath
directives from 99-nvidia.conf file, the fonts in firefox are much
So, I'm wondering if the 99-nvidia.conf file should also include the
font path for the Type1 fonts.
Anyway, those are my two cents worth.
