Re: FC5 8756 drivers NVIDIA GO 5700FX 128MB, P4 3Ghz Alienware Laptop
From the installer log it looks like you didn't install the sdk package, since "X install prefix" is set to /usr/X11R6.
Not sure why you're reinstalling the entire OS when you bump into problems, that's not really a good way to solve it. What matters with FC5 is that you update both kernel and kernel-devel to the latest available (and reboot to it), and that you have the sdk installed. After that the nvidia installer should work flawlessly.
Are you actually running 2.6.16-1.2096_FC5-i686? Any hints in dmesg why the module didn't load?
