Default unable to install nvidia drivers on FC4

I think I know the answer, but am trying to confirm. I recently installed Fedora Core 4 on my system and tried updating the video drivers. When I run "yum install nvidia-glx kernel-module-nvidia-$(uname -r)" I get:

yum install nvidia-glx kernel-module-nvidia-$(uname -r)
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
updates-released 100% |=========================| 951 B 00:00
extras 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
base 100% |=========================| 1.1 kB 00:00
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: nvidia-glx
No Match for argument: kernel-module-nvidia-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4
Nothing to do

Does this mean I have to wait for NVIDIA to release the appropriate files, or am I missing something?

No, this means you have to yum install the correct module. Upgrade your kernel to the latest version, then try again. Also, it would be helpful if you let us know what yum repository you are using.

Nvidia is in no way connected to FC4 or any repositories.

Armand,
You only need to install the kernel-devel RPM. Then please use the official NVIDIA driver package from the NVIDIA website.

Thanks,
Lonni

I tried running the latest installer (7676) and had problems. After looking deeper, I discovered I had to disable selinux to install the drivers. Thanks for the help though.
