The solution was to tweak the xorg.conf file to what the rpmfusion
people say is needed.  That means ensuring that the following exists in
the xorg.conf file:

Section "Files"
   ModulePath      "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
   ModulePath      "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
EndSection
[...]
The RPMFusion package is broken if that hack is needed in xorg.conf.

As mentioned in another mail: the RPM packages adds those line to xorg.conf normally. If it doesn't please check why it doesn't and file a bug -- only then the problem can get solved. And solving problems is way more important then documenting workarounds.

And a separate dir for the nvidia stuff is needed, as the RPM Fusion packages can't replace files that are owned by Packages provided by Fedora -- for example /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so is owned by xorg-x11-server-Xorg, hence RPM Fusion must write Nvidias libglx.so to a different path.
