NEWBIE - I have recently installed Fedora 5 - having troubles install NVIDIA drivers!
When I install the driver I get a message saying that it can't find the kernel. I am presuming it is talking about a nvidia kernel as I have checked that the main kernel for the system has been install from the DVD I downloaded fedora core 5 from. Any ideas on what I have to do? The nvidia installer thingy tries to build a kernel but then it goes pear shaped and says I need to download a kernel. As I am a newbie I forgot to write down exactly what it says - whoops - should I try it again? I am in INIT 3 when I try to install the driver by the way... Any help would be greatly appreciated! Also, I have downloaded the latest drivers.

1. First make sure you have the most recent kernel. Go to Applications > System Tools > Software Updater. When the list of packages appears, there should be something along the lines of "Updated kernel packages available". If there isn't, it means you already have the most recent kernel and can skip down to step 2 below. If there is, make sure that's checked, then click Apply Updates, then reboot when done.
2. Open up a terminal and type "yum -y --enablerepo livna install kmod-nvidia". This should download and install the right driver package for you automatically. When done, you'll have to kill x and start x to use the driver. If you know how to do this, go for it. If not, just reboot again.

I cannot seem to find a posting with the entire answer neatly packaged for me (ha).
When I execute the following:yum -y --enablerepo livna install kmod-nvidia
I get: "...repository not found"
Is there a resource where I can go to and get all the steps once and for all?
