Using: nvidia-installer ncurses user interface
-> Tagging shared libraries with chcon -t textrel_shlib_t.
-> License accepted.
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
   ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
   rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: Yes)
ERROR: Unable to connect to download.nvidia.com (temporary DNS error (try again
       later))
-> No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site;
   this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for
   your kernel.
-> Performing CC sanity check with CC="cc".
-> Performing CC version check with CC="cc".
-> Kernel source path: '/lib/modules/2.6.28-0.140.rc9.git1.fc11.x86_64/source'
-> Kernel output path: '/lib/modules/2.6.28-0.140.rc9.git1.fc11.x86_64/build'
ERROR: If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure
       you either have configured kernel sources matching your
       kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
       on your system.
       
       If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
       you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
       installed on your system. If you specified a separate
       output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or
       the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this
       directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with
       the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.
       
       Depending on where and how the kernel sources (or the
       kernel headers) were installed, you may need to specify
       their location with the SYSSRC environment variable or
       the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.
ERROR: Installation has failed.  Please see the file
       '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details.  You may find suggestions
       on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
       driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

So can anyone help me please???

Tnx in advance!!!

go back to nvidia and get the 2.6.27 and up nvida kernel patch. or go to there site and see if they have the newest on there. for fedora. if not you get the patch and run the ./Nvidiaxxpkg.run.bin --patch-file if you are in the same directory s the patch file nvidia will load the patch and rebuild the driver. then you can now you use the custom pkg. it will be this way till fedora builds it or nvidia decides to rebuild it and get it ok from the fedora 10 repo. othere wise look around I am sure some one has built it and has posted the rpm somwhere. Do not wrack your brains trying to compile it. onother BIG thing is you need to install your devolpment packages gcc g++ kernel source. or you will never be able to compile it and you will have to find a matching rpm for your kernel.

fedora core is a bleeding edge distro with many work arounds still to come it is a distro that is totaly on the edge with experimental stuff. most likley you will find fedora core 8 is stable now and 9 is doing a lot better they have 90 percent of what you need. nothing against fedora core I down load and install the new ones when they come. f10 is a work in progress.
