I am new to linux and trying to install nvidia has been a steep learning curve. I am using FC6 and a GForce 3 Ti500.
Managed to get 9626 to build by changing <linux/config.h> to <linux/autoconf.h> in nv-linux.h, after much searching.
Can't find solution though from the forum or it's there but I can't understand it. I have checked the installed components against README and they seemed to be present. But my xorg.conf file still shows "nv" driver.
Running glxgears gives me:
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual
And ldd glxinfo gives me:

My xorg log shows this error message:
(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)
Below are my logs.
In my untrained assessment, it could be a linking problem?? Would appreciate some pointers or help.
