Default No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernal

I just installed FC6, and now would like to get the latest nvidia drivers onto my system. Unfortunetly since FC6 just came out on Tuesday there are not precompiled kernal interfaces for my kernel version. At least that's my assumption.

So do I wait for one to be installed, or do I roll my own? If so how do I roll my own?

The error message after I try and download the kernel for ftp://download.nvidia.com is
"No matching precompiled kernel interface was found on the NVIDIA ftp site; this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for your kernel."

I press OK and it starts to build the kernel module and it gives this error message:
"ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module."
Press OK and I get this error:

"ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com"

Which brings me to here. I searched for the Title of this thread and found nothing.

From the log file I found this which means nothing to me:

make[4]: *** [/tmp/selfgz4249/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8776-pkg2/usr/src/nv/nv.o] Error 1
make[3]: *** [_module_/tmp/selfgz4249/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8776-pkg2/usr/src/nv] Error 2
make[2]: *** [modules] Error 2
NVIDIA: left KBUILD.
nvidia.ko failed to build!
make[1]: *** [mdl] Error 1
make: *** [module] Error 2
-> Error.

No solution, just a "me to". I get the exact same error trying to build the module.
