You Fedora rooters seem to forget that Nvidia unlike many other
hardware builders DOES provide a "DRIVER" for Windows, not a surprise,
but also for Linux! I know your trying to get a thing set up so you can
yum Nvidia. It is not working well.
In the mean time you can and I did get the software made by Nvidia
for Linux and yes, I must run it every time I accept a kernel change.
This takes about 5 minutes.
