kantu how did you get to root .Using " su - " or " su " ( no - )
if su then give it a try using
Code:
 su -
( root password)
rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-*
and if that dose not work try this
--- the how to from fedora ----
"Howto for the rpmfusion nvidia drivers "
