So,I installed the livna repository and am not sure which yum command installs the drivers from livna. (I've done yum update) does this install them? I hope not because my frame rate still sucks.
yum install kmod-nvidia
It even takes care of your xorg for you. Just reboot & you should have working nvidia drivers.
However, please note that if you have a GeForce4 or lower, then those drivers won't work. You'll have to use the 96xx legacy driver on nvidia's site.
