I can confirm a problem

tarifa ~ 864# uname -a
Linux tarifa 2.6.25.6-55.fc9.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Jun 10 16:05:21 EDT 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

If I install the latest "livna" nvidia rpms then X fails

yum --enable=livna update

I had to back off to 

tarifa ~ 865# rpm -qa|grep -a nvidia
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-173.14.05-1.lvn9.x86_64
kmod-nvidia-173.14.05-4.lvn9.x86_64
kmod-nvidia-2.6.25.6-55.fc9.x86_64-173.14.05-4.lvn9.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-173.14.05-1.lvn9.x86_64

I have been lazy and not probed any further !!
