Thumbs down Both (8776 and the 9625) Drivers Don't Compile on FC6

my kernel version is: 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 (right out of the box fc6 install). I have kernel-devel and the xorg server sdk installed. My video card is a 6800GT.

excerpt from the nvidia.log:

Did that (search).
Patched the nv-linux.h for autoconf.h.
Installer completes building new ko files, but insmod fails to load driver ko.

Have fallen back to Xorg nv driver for now.
If I can workaround what's happening, I will try to post workaround steps.

Please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log while this problem is present.

Thanks,

One some machines FC6 installs the i586 kernel and i686 kernel-devel.

Please check the architecture of the kernel installed:

rpm -qa --queryformat "%{NA****-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}\n"|fgrep kernel
