    It turned out livna-config-display was causing issues. I went back to single user mode, then used yum remove livna-config-display. I then changed the file name of xorg.conf to xorg.conf.bak as you suggested devils casper and it worked just fine. After this I was able to boot into Fedora graphical mode. I thought I'd try kmod-nvidia again, but after installing and restarting I once more found myself staring at that flashing text cursor. Is this not as simple as typing yum install kmod-nvidia? I just can't seem to see what I'm doing wrong here...

    Edit: I'm currently using Fedora 12 64bit kernel 2.6.31.12-174.2.22.fc12.x86_64 and my graphics card is a gtx 260.

    Thanks ryptyde. Don't know whether my original source was a guide for older Fedora versions or whether I just overlooked the grub and allow_execstack steps. This is by no means an issue, but grub now seems to boot differently. Is this just because noueau is now disabled so it has to use basic graphics? Also, is allow_execstack a security concern? Was reading about it and it sounds like it applies not only to this driver but everything.

    Not sure of the security concerns but know that following the guide has enabled 3D effects for two of my Fedora 12 installs. The nouveau open source driver is progressing and has 3D effects for some nvidia cards with Fedora 13 recently.
