Do u know how to enable Direct Rendering?(click if u r a super linuxer:D)

im currently using x86_64 Fedora Core6 w/ newest nvidia driver.
openGL is working and 3D accelerating is working fine also.
the problem is
when i use wine/cedega which is 32bit program, it wont let me use direct rendering.
i was researching what problem could be, and some ppl said that i need 32bit library as well as 64bit library files
to use direct rendering in wine/cedega.
i wonder if any of u had same problem as me and solved it...
plz help me to find those library files or other suggestions to fix this issue.

ah...well...i fixed it...but i will leave this thread for those who will search for same question i had....
it was very simple if u r using fedora core.
i believe that fedora core is the easiest kind of linux module...
well...i never have used other kinds linux...only red hat and fedora.
wonderful thing about this fedora core is u can just add stuff u need from yum, yumex
or package manager.

if u installed x86_64 fedora core w/ cedega like me <- idiot...
plz install All the files that name under "kmod-same version as u installed"
i just needed to install 2 more files...
if there are 2 or more different versions of kernels, install the newest one....
and use cedega, it will recognize 32bit direct rendering...

Fedora is best.
it's much harder for ubuntu....i just read how to do it...
(XD hehe
