Applies To: Acer Aspire 9300 Laptop
The Laptop has an nVidia GeForce Go 6100 video card.
The driver was downloaded from this link:
The problem with the manual install is that you manually have to reinstall each time you update the kernel. If you update the kernel with yum and you have installed the video driver with yum, yum will install the driver in the new kernel for you.
Make sure to configure yum with freshrpms repository.
You can run the following command to see which packages are available:
yum list | grep nvidia
This is what it gave me:
nvidia-x11-drv.x86_64 1.0.9746-1 freshrpms
To install, run the following:
yum install nvidia-x11-drv
