XOrg 7.1 or later
Well, it says make sure you have the latest X0rg. Like the cockroach man
from "The Men In Black" crashing around going "Where is it!? Where - is
- it?!" rpm -q xorg or Xorg or XOrg jeesus. I fergit! Nice docs would
say -check using rpm -q Xorg-blahblah  nice step by step for the
braindead or Good Ole Mum. I'd like to have this pain over in 10 minutes
or less.

The nvnews instructions are intentionally not distro specific.  The
first 5 lines of /var/log/Xorg.0.log will show you the version you're
using.  The short answer is that you need FC6 for Xorg-7.1.x.

NVIDIA graphics drivers >= 1.0-9625

not. check this, check that. Use this one at your own risk, that kinda
thing. I beleive and trust in you and nVidea explicitly. It seems the
Fedora / RH stance is to trust only livna-brand rpms. What the fizeck do
I or the average user know? I've never figured that one out, as you love
what you do and it's not about the Ka-ching!
