How to remove nouveau driver without using rpmfusion ?

0 votes

Please post the incantation necessary to remove the nouveau driver in Fedora 19. I'd really like to install the driver directly from Nvidia, instead of from rpmfusion.

You have to recompile your kernel with nouveau switched it off in your kernel .config (CONFIG_DRM_NOUVEAU). As far as I know, you could also blacklist the nouveau driver and recreate your initramfs (dracut -f).

Just for kicks, I decided to play a bit with Fedora 23 beta. Yes, I know it's not supposed to work like a production distro, but I thought it would be fun to poke around on it a little. I sorta need to install a couple of packages from rpmfusion, though. Unfortunately, they don't have a Fedora 23 setup out yet.

I tried to install the Fedora 22 repositories, but it didn't work.

I get the error:
Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'rpmfusion-free' from '':
Cannot prepare internal mirrorlist: No URLs in mirrorlist, disabling.

So, how would I go about, say, installing mplayer in Fedora 23 beta?

I am currently running F17. As it is nearing end of life, I am anxious to upgrade. Around kernel 3.7, I started to experience very heavy graphics slowdown and corruption. I reported a bug around the time I experienced it . Because F17 has a version of the 3.6 kernel, I can continue using the desktop without interruption.

In preparations for upgrading I tested out F19 Beta, Alpha, and final live CD. All versions show the same bug, creating an unusable desktop.

At this point I am stuck between F19 which has corrupted graphics; unusable desktop and F17 which is EOL and will not receive security updates (not to mentioned outdated).

Any thoughts on what to do?

I want to start a systemd service (dhcpd) , but only if a link to the internet is present. I don't want the service to start on boot.

systemctl start doesn't work unless the service is enabled.

This works, but it's very kludgy:

 systemctl enable 
 systemctl start 
 systemctl disable 

Any better ideas ?

I would like to be able to copy-paste text without transferring the format. Im using F19 with KDE.

Currently, when I copy-paste (between Firefox, LibreOffice, etc), formatting like font, font size and font attributes get also copied and pasted. But I am looking for a way to copy-paste such that the format of the original text is discarded and instead the format of the target document is used, as if I had typed the text on the keyboard.
