Zander, the minion site is great. Thanks. I've noticed only one thing that could cause some of the problems people are having. If for some reason, you unpack your drivers, then decide not to user nvidia-installer or repack into a new *nv.run file, but rather use a 'make' from usr/src/nv, then the GLX drivers remain at the last version. I looked over the makefile and don't see why this is, but at first I found in /usr/lib/tls the GL drivers of the previous version.
However: If you recreate an *nv.run package and run it, it first creates the /usr/lib/tls GL drivers and all seems well.
btw: I'm on fc1 (like 2 beta from development) , have a basic 4200 nv card. 2.6.0 kernel and am up to gcc 3.3.2-3, glibc-2.3.3x for what it's worth.
