How to install kmod-nvidia for fedora 13 beta

how to install kmod-nvidia for fedora 13 beta.

*I know there is an experimental mesa driver that works. However, it does not control fan speed, and the fan is always on full. It's driving me crazy.

*card nvidia 250 gts.

You could try rpmfusion and install from there.

I found a better way

Install rpmfusion.

enable rpmfusion for fedora 13-free-test updates
enable rpmfusion for fedora 13-Nonfree-test updates
*enable repo's through packagekit it's easier, but use yum to install.

*install kmod-nvidia if the version is available for your kernel.

if not........ install akmod-nvida

^borrowed this point forward from leigh123linux which are his 6th and 7th step

run this command as the root
sed -i '/root=/s|$| rdblacklist=nouveau|' /boot/grub/grub.conf

run this command as the root

gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

and add

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "IgnoreABI" "true"

*this worked for me I do not know if it will work for others.
