Annndd I have been informed that livna-testing has the rpms in there
repository. I was not aware  of that and spent the better half of today
trying to get the nvidia acript to work... I did search for this
solution but nothing came up for ivna beta nvidia drivers ... So I came
up with the solution below.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have FC6 installed with the

NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9626-pkg1.run and what a beautiful desktop.

Download from ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-9626/ the
drivers from here.

To get it to work I drop to runlevel 3

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9626-pkg1.run just to launch the script.

<alt+f2> and login as root

cd /tmp/selfgzXXXX/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9626-pkg1/usr/src/nv

comment out config.h in nv-linux.h

save and exit

Switch back to script

<alt+f1>
Continue with the script.

Reboot.

Yes... I know FC6  is not released until tomorrow.

FYI, what you wrote above has been posted on the nvnews forum for a
few weeks now.
