Hm, nevermind, I upgraded the kernel to kernel-2.6.21-1.3142.fc7 and I'm
using the NVidia F7 packages from ATrpms and it's working fine.

someone from Nvidia told me that one has to use the following command
to compile the Nvidia driver with recent X builds (works for me):

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9755-pkg2.run --x-module-path=`X
-showDefaultModulePath 2>&1 | cut -d, -f1` --x-library-path=`X
-showDefaultLibPath 2>&1`

Thanks for the info with the ATrpms package, I will look at it.
Before, I used the freshrpms package which isn't available for F7 yet.
