Fedora 17/18 "Steam" Kurulumu

Merhabalar ;

Oyun Dünyası takip edenler "Steam" programının ne işe yaradığını ve nasıl kullanıldığı iyi bilir. Bügünler de tabiki de "Linux" sürümü çıkmış olması rağmen çoğunlukla "deb" ve "aur" paketi görüyoruz.Ancak Fedora ekibide bu konuda tabiki boş durmuyor. Fedora ekibinden "Spot" nickli arkadaşımız bize bu konuda bir iyilik yapmış ve RPM paketlerini Fedora 17 ve 18 için meydana getirmiştir.
su - 
cd etc/yum.repos.d/
wget http://spot.fedorapeople.org/steam/steam.repo 
yum install steam -y
Bu işlemden sonra steam'e merhaba diyebilirsiniz. :) Şimdi de ufak bir ayrıntı daha eğer "beta" kullanıcı hakkınız varsa giriş yaparken herhangi bir problem olmayacaktır.Ancak "beta" kullanıcısı hakkınız yoksa da steam programını açarken root olmadan terminalden
steam steam://store 
Kodu ile de steam güncellemesi başlatıyoruz ve 111 MB civarı bir güncellemeden sonra ( benim gözlemlediğim kadarı sizde değişebilir) steam programı account girişini soracaktır. Bundan sonrasında iyi oyunlar dilemek kalır :)



Teşekkür Ederim

Fedora 18 Kernel+Nvidia after update fix.

Hi Fedorans;

1.5 week ago,  I was working on some of my friends laptop for installing nvidia optimus (aka bumbleebe) on his Fedora TC7 fresh install machine. Well after that his update system. I changed my system for Disk crypt and also see new F18 TC8. For me installing nvidia was easy because I already know new lib paths and also fresh instal easier then updating Nvidia 304.xx to latest version of nvidia. Normally ; If you update everything even kernel and other things except nvidia, everything is works fine but when nvidia update come, first things first


  • We should check new nvidia libs and paths
  • Check X11/ and modprobe.d/ directories for open source driver block and xorg.conf  file exists.
  • Check /etc/ld.so.conf.d  directory for nvidia-libs.conf ( It can be x64 so depends your ARCH can be change ) If exists we should delete and do "ldconfig" as root
  • Re-install bumbleebe and restart service and configure conf ifles and services files.
  • Re-install "mesa-libGL" packages for intel because nvidia change lib and intel can't understand so we need get back our original libGL libs
  • Re-install new akmod-nvidia and delete all old version akmod-nvidia (aka kmod-nvidia too)
  • You can see this error If you do optirun command like a " 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation Device 11a0 (rev ff) can't be control " or such a like that  ( I forget the get error to paste sorry If I see again I will change here) 
This error in above can be handle with just "reboot" and Intel + Nvidia will gonna work.

This suggestions was come from my experince and I really did all of it for make it work after update new version of nvidia without fresh system install to my friend laptop and he's working really nicely on this laptop says "Thank you" to me :)



Thank you

Fedora 18 Beta TC8 Nvidia 304.64 Library Path Change

Today I installed new Fedora 18 Beta TC8 as a Default Desktop(Gnome-shell) and I updated my system add packages after all I started to follow my Nvidia optimus guide and I realized now Nvidia xorg.conf's libraries paths  ;


Section "Files"
   ModulePath   "/usr/lib64/nvidia"
   ModulePath   "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"
EndSection


Another things are , we don't need anymore these things; 

2 “mv /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia /usr/lib64/xorg” so that Xorg on intel stops finding nvidia modules

4 in /etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia change ModulePath from “/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia” (set per instructions above) to “/usr/lib64/xorg/nvidia” so that X on nvidia will find nvidia modules

Rest of guide is still same have good optimus using :)) 

Thank you

Fedora 18 Beta TC6 Nvidia Optimus Part-2


Nvidia and Fedora ... good combination to have nice graphics but. oh If your card has optimus technology what we gonna do ? Of course we gonna use it by installing right programs and make it work !! :)
My first article was about installing Nvidia adding a softwares for optimus also get power save by closing our card.

That's all but  "Nvidia-Settings" Control Center not working ?



That's problem but here is how can we fix that so easily. As we all know first If we gonna try run application by nvidia we have to use "optirun" command. And our desktop has virtual X screen by controlled bumblebee and that's also control by nvidia. Default screen number is ":8" , so here is how can we control that screen and also our nvidia cards.

optirun nvidia-settings -c :8 



And tad aaa . Now we can see our control center fully. Now I set my settings for nvidia save it to "xorg.conf.nvidia" in "/etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.nvidia" . and If you gonna save a new files please make sure get back and your library path section and screen section is right like my before article.


Another problem is about "Nvidia-Settings" desktop shortcut is not working. We have a desktop but no use. We gonna need to fix that and make use full to us.

Let's write command to reach this desktop shortcut file

su -c 'vim /usr/share/applications/nvidia-settings.desktop'






Okey after that command we gonna see something like this.



and we gonna change 6. line to this ;

Exec=optirun nvidia-settings -c :8 

Save and exit and done. Now you can use your nvidia-settings desktop shoutcut too.


That if somebody want real optimus experience use fedora : https://fedoraproject.org/





Thank you and have nice optimus tips using :))
