Nvidia Fx 5200 on Fedora 17

recently a friend lend me your desktop pc for reinstall the OS, I decided install Fedora 17 as a backup OS, if something happens with Windows XP linux will save his life.

After install and configure Windows XP, Fedora take his turn, but when the install process ended an out of range message appears into my screen. Fortunately network was working and ssh was runing :-P.

First I take my laptop and  discover the nvidia computer ip, you can check your router ip or use nmap.

ssh <nvidia_ip> -l root

vim /etc/default/grub

and append in your  GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX  this text “rhgb quiet rdblacklist=nouveau nouveau.modeset=0″

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=”rd.md=0 rd.lvm=0 rd.dm=0 SYSFONT=True rd.luks=0 LANG=es_ES.UTF-8  KEYTABLE=es rhgb quiet rdblacklist=nouveau nouveau.modeset=0”

and finally run

grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

reboot your computer

reboot && exit

now your screen is working , not fluent  but working :-P.
