Install nVIDIA Graphics Driver in Fedora 15

Previously some days before I have written how to Install ATI Drivers in Fedora 15 using RPM Fusion repositories. Similarly the official Fedora repositories are still not updated with nVIDIA proprietary drivers. So in this post I will explain how to install nVIDIA Graphics Driver in Fedora 15 using the RPM Fusion repositories.

To install the ATI drivers in Fedora 15 first we have to integrate the RPM Fusion repository. For this, open a Terminal and type :

su -c ‘yum localinstall –nogpgcheck

http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm

http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm’

To update Fedora, type :

su
yum -y update

Now install nVIDIA driver by typing :

su
su -c ‘yum -y install akmod-nvidia kmod-nvidia nvidia-settings nvidia-xconfig xorg-x11-drv-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-devel xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs’

Now again update Fedora by :

su
yum -y update

Now reboot your system to make the nVIDIA drivers to work.
