You need to set up the rpm-fusion repositories. Propitiatory software cannot be placed in the Fedora repositories.

To set up the repositories for yum run this command:
Code:
su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'
Note that, if you are running from a "root" TTY, the su -c prefix and the single-quote marks are not necessary.

Note that because the nVidia kernel module is built specifically for each kernel release, you need to download and install the specific nVidia kernel module for your particular kernel. If you update your kernel, you also need to update the nVidia kernel module.

Unless you install one of the akmod packages that automatically check for the correct version during the boot and recompile as necessary. There is also a yum plugin (fedorakmod) that will check for a matching kmod file when the kernel is updated.)

this is auto done by yum
Code:
yum install kmod-nvidia
-- or --
Code:
yum install akmod-nvidia
this will install the correct one for your kernel
