Do you have 3D acceleration enabled? Do this command:
Code:
glxinfo | grep direct

Get this file:

http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/L...-5336-pkg1.run

Get out of your gui and to a console (logout, press ctrl+alt+F1 usually does it), login as root, init 3 (to kill everything off).

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run

then open up your XF86Config (usually found at /etc/X11/) and change a couple of things.

Remove this value:

Load "dri"

and under Section "device", change:

Driver "nv"
to
Driver "nvidia"

Then reboot.

Try tuxracer, post back if all is still not well.

I dont think so. Its probably asking if you want to download a precompiled module for your driver. Answer no to that, then answer yes to having it compile one for you. After the installer finishes, su to root, then do this command:
Code:
modprobe nvidia
Then exit root, then do startx &.

Do you have your kernel sources installed? Do a search for kernel-source in the RPM database.

You sure? It should be in there... what is your kernel version? What is in /usr/src?
