Help On Geforce Fx Go 5200 Driver
Hi all,
I've installaed the new Fedora 12 distribution on my Acer Aspire 1363 Wlmi.
Everything went just fine except driver installation.

First attempt was run, as root, the following pack:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.22-pkg1.run
but it went on error.

Second attempt was installing drivers using yum:
yum install kmod-nvidia-173.xx-PAE;
everything seemed just ok but after rebbot I got a black screen with a blinking cursor on top left so I had to uninstall nvidia drivers and libraries.

Taking a look on nvidia site I've found that kmod-nvidia-173.xx driver supports, so far, only fx 5200 card but not fx go 5200 card.
May you kindly explain me if card geforce fx go 5200 will be supported by nvidia driver?

Thanks in advance for any help.
