(WW) Warning, couldn't open module nvidia
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)

Looks like you didn't follow these instructions:

Hello,

I've had the same problem with my FC7 x86_64. Maybe this solution works for you:

It seems that the nvidia setup installs the xorg driver into a wrong path. So you need to take this way:

At first create a link in /usr/lib/xorg

Code:
cd /usr/lib/xorg/
ln -s ../xorg/ lib
Now install the driver package, please replace ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9755-pkg2.run with the name of your installer
Code:
 ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-9755-pkg2.run --x-prefix=/usr/lib/xorg/
At this time, Xorg will start with the nvidia module. If you get an error regarding the glx-module or beryl doesn't work, please check the xorg.conf. There must be the following sections:
Code:
Section "Module"
       Load  "dbe"
       Load  "extmod"
       Load  "fbdevhw"
       Load  "glx"
       Load  "record"
       Load  "freetype"
       Load  "type1"
       Load  "GLCore"
       Load  "dri"
EndSection
Section "Extensions"
       Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection
The screen-section should contain this values:
Code:
Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "True"
Option "RenderAccel" "True"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
If you run a x86_64-system, please change replace all lib with lib64

regards
Marcel

Default Re: can't create nvidia module for Fedora7 (after kernel-2.6.20-1.2967.fc7)

Hello,

I'm having problems with fedora 7 test 3,

kernel: 2.6.20-1.3045.fc7
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-1.0.9755-2.lvn7

When I try to rebuild xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-1.0.9755-2.lvn7

I get the following dependency problem...

Building target platforms: i686
Building for target i686
error: Failed build dependencies:
kernel-devel-i686 = 2.6.20-1.2967.fc7 is needed by nvidia-kmod-1.0.9755-1.2.6.20_1.2967.fc7.i686
kernel-PAE-devel-i686 = 2.6.20-1.2967.fc7 is needed by nvidia-kmod-1.0.9755-1.2.6.20_1.2967.fc7.i686



No idea why the kernel version is hardcoded in the spec file..

Thanks, I remove /usr/X11R6/lib/ and make link to /usr/lib/xorg/. Now nviadia works fine
