Problems compiling via video driver in Fedora Core 5

I am trying to compile the latest via video driver. However, two of the listed dependancies are xorg-x11-libs and xorg-x11-devel. When I try to install them with yum however, they can not be found.

Any help for a *nix noob?

Xorg has a via driver that you can install by doing
#yum install xorg-x11-drv-via
As for the devel packages of newer versions of xorg, do
#yum install libX11-devel


compile, driver, fedora, via, video
