I've been searching the forum for an answer to my video card issue. I also have a GeForce GTX 550 Ti. I just finished building a new computer and put in this new card. I plugged the monitor into the card and it works, but I didn't know if it was configured correctly. I went into PCC to configure, and I got a black screen when I pressed the config button.
I just installed nvdock, and it doesn't open.
I see in a post above that in /etc/modprobe.d/display-driver, there should be some items blacklisted. I don't have display-driver under modprobe.d. I have blacklist, blacklist-compat, and blacklist-pclos. The only thing nvidia in there is nvidiafb in blacklist-compat.
(by the way, what are these blacklist files for?)
This is the result of rpm -qa | grep nvidia:
Do I need to delete all but the 2 "current" ones?
I looked in the wiki for a nvidia how-to, but didn't see any.
Saw another post here on prelink and nvidia...I don't have it installed.
