Subject description: Please help me configure NVidia to work with Planet CCRMA's real-time kernel
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

I've just got a new laptop with NVidia GeForce 9300M and intended to use it as a Fedora linux box for music synthesis.
In the past, my laptop's specification are okay for small-size live music synthesis and performances, but usually when I'm displaying more and more things, the audio sometimes drops out.

So I decided to have a high-spec machine with NVidia to help with the display part.

Now after installing Fedora 10 and Planet CCRMA's real-time kernel,
I can't get NVidia to work by Livna repository's method..

But if I go back to use Fedora 10's default kernel, which has NVidia precompiled kernel module on Livna, NVidia works.

So ... what should I do? Does anybody has this kind of set up and succeed?
While running the nvidia driver install package from nvidia's site, it seems it couldn't find the kernel source although i've installed the kernel-rt-devel.

Please help heheheh. Thanks. Embarassed

You ever get this straightened out? I know too well the nvidia drivers can be tricky, and can need specific kernel modules to work properly.

Try using the open source "nv" driver rather than the proprietary "nvidia" driver. You won't get nearly as good 3D performance, and many 3D features will be missing, but the display will work perfectly well for audio synthesis and recording work.

The problem in general is that upstream can't put low latency hacks into closed source kernel parts.

Good luck!
