Actually it says that the nVidia driver conflicts with and to make sure it
doesn't get loaded. At least on my system it doesn't automatically load.
However after a bit of googling a friend and I found that the rivafb
module can be disabled on bootup without needing to recompile the kernel
removing the rivafb module.
I am also running FC2 (on my test system with nVidia 6106) and added the
following to the end of the kernel line in my /boot/grub/grub.conf:
Make sure you modify the section you are actually booting from if you have
multiple kernels installed.
Here is the whole section on mine:
title Fedora Core (2.6.7-v4l2-pcHDTV)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.7-v4l2-pcHDTV ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet video=rivafb:off
P.S. My system did work fine without adding this and rebooting. I only
added it to be anal ;)
