Thanks Jarod. I got lirc and the nvidia drivers update for the new
kernel, but not without some issues (kernel-firmware is a dependency I
couldn't find...I had to enable the rawhide repository for that). For
others that might be following this thread, here are the commands I
used based on Jarod's suggestion to try RPM fusion's akmods:
# I had to temporarily disable package signing in /etc/yum.conf
# Change gpgcheck=1 to gpgcheck=0. This is a workaround as one
# of the packages wasn't signed. Don't forget to change it back.
yum install kernel-22.214.171.124-198.fc11.i586.rpm \
# kernel-firmware >= 126.96.36.199-198.fc11 is needed by
# Try adding enablerepo=rawhide:
yum --enablerepo=rawhide install kernel-188.8.131.52-198.fc11.i586.rpm \
# Install the akmods. See:
rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
yum install akmod-nvidia
# check /etc/grub.conf to make sure the new kernel is selected
reboot # my boot process got hung here for some reason
reboot # after ssh'ing in and issuing a second reboot command,
everything came up fine.
My F10 -> F11 transition was definitely the most painful upgrade I've
done in a while. I guess that's the price of staying on the bleeding
edge. Hopefully things stabilize a bit in the coming months. Thanks
again for your help.
