I am still not able to install the nvidia drivers. I have used the 
fedora forum using the akmod/kmod method and still I am getting no 
results. I have sent pictures of the screen after trying and the error 
message and no one seems to have a clue as to what is going on. Will 
somebody look into it? The only information I have found was that the 
iwl4965 firmware was messed up and will be fixed shortly. It has been 
more than 2 weeks and no results. I am a novice at this so I am unable 
to determine a course of action to resolve this problem. Please help
