Image
To keep myself from searching every time I install or re-install Fedora 19 64-bit I made a little cheat sheet. Below are the steps I use to install the nVidia Drivers for my GeForce 660 Ti. This should work with most other nVidia cards which are of the 8xxx variety or newer (maybe others too but the oldest I've tested is a 8800).

First you'll need to make sure you have the RPMFusion repository enabled. To do so use the below command (1 long command)

sudo yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm

Handbrake for Fedora 19

Image
I was looking for handbrake for my Fedora 19 install and was having a dickens of a time. I stumbled upon this repo with it and a few other apps of interest. It's owned by a chap called Slaanesh, so all thanks goes out to them. Original information source from here.

First add the repo to your system

sudo wget http://negativo17.org/repos/fedora-handbrake.repo -O /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-handbrake.repo

Then install Handbrake

yum install HandBrake-gui

Thanks again, Slaanesh!
