i installed fc12 but i failed on installing my vga driver for 2 times,so i install fc11 and nvidia driver just works fine,
that's is what i did:
1:at first i lower my system protection so SELinux doesn't prevent the driver from loading [setsebool -P allow_execstack on]
2:download the driver [yum -y install kmod-nvidia]
for the first time i install kmod-nvidia,and for the second time i got kmod-nvidia-PAE (then i understand that my kernel is not PAE it's just PAE enabled)
3:mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nouveau.img
dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

but after rebooting i confront with splash screen,so i replace the xorg.conf.backup with the new xorg.conf that nvidia has been created,nvidia asked me to do the nvidia-xconfig command and because of this command it will make a new xorg.conf.
i did not even test fc13 because i scare,you know,if i fail one more time!
thanks in advance
