Default Geforce 8800 GT on Fedora core 8 64

Anybody manage to run Geforce 8800 GT on Fedora core 8 64?

I try to install 169.04 drivers manually and from livna package.
On both cases my computer starts and when it starts graphics
driver system crashes permanently.

This are the last part of xorg.log file I got:

(II) Setting vga for screen 0.
(II) Enabling PCI device
(**) NVIDIA(0): Depth 16, (--) framebuffer bpp 16
(==) NVIDIA(0): RGB weight 565
(==) NVIDIA(0): Default visual is TrueColor
(==) NVIDIA(0): Using gamma correction (1.0, 1.0, 1.0)
(**) NVIDIA(0): Enabling RENDER acceleration
(II) NVIDIA(0): Support for GLX with the Damage and Composite X extensions is
(II) NVIDIA(0): enabled.

To work in Linux I have to come back to Geforce 6800, with
the same drivers and setting which crashes Geforce 8800 GT
it works without any problems.

Nvidia log file : nvidia-bug-report.log

You need to boot on the last kernel which was installed when you have installed the livna package... For now there isn't any 169.04 kmod-nvidia package for the last F-8 kernel...
(should be fixed asap)

I install 169.04 from NVIDIA side and there is one version for one kernel in livna testing pack. I get the same results on both drivers. I start driver and than computer stop to respond, with Geforce 6800 it works perfect.

It is interesting because I saw that somebody write here

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=102570

that he manage to run Fedora 8 with Geforce 8800 GT, but maybe it was different configuration as single core computer or 32 bit system.

Thing I do not like here is that I do not know what is going on, I check logs I have and there is nothing there.
