Ran into this same problem.  If I recall correctly, someone posted the
solution here.  You need to follow these steps:

1) boot into runlevel 3 (edit the grub menu and append a '3' to the
boot line for Fedora
2) login as root
3) type modprobe nvidia to produce device files in /dev
4) copy the nvidia* files from /dev to /etc/udev/devices
5) type chown root.root /etc/udev/devices/nvidia*

That should fix it.  Did for me.
