Default Maya and OpenGL Problem on FC 5.

hi all

i've got many trouble for installing the nvidia drivers on fedora 5. i'm new to linux

- nvidia said that i had to do this
Code:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8756-pkg1.run
here i've got an error , i need to shutdown X.

- nvidia said that i had to modify the /etc/inittab like this
Code:
id:3:initdefault:
in order to start without X, that's what i do

There , i've got a new error i need to install the kernel interface

- For solving this i had to install the
Code:
kernel-source.rpm
i try to find this Package on the Fedora core package list => Nothing
i learn on the web , that this kernel-source was no longer available on fedora .

so here i am in a dead end . i really don't know what to do !

really really hard to install official drivers without livna. I can't use xorg 8756 because they make maya 7 crash , with a signal 11 error (usually driver pb)

if someone can help me i'll really appreciate it

kernel-devel has to be installed instead of kernel-source.
e.g.: kernel-devel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.i686.rpm
depending on your kernel and version

#	Option	"XkbLayout"	"de"
#	Option	"XkbVariant"	"nodeadkeys"
