and before anyone asks..

rpmfusion probably won't pick this one up since it is a beta/release candidate. They will probably wait until the final release.

(now watch them make a liar out of me! :D )

You need install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-280.11-1.fc16.x86_64.rpm and xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-280.11-1.fc16.i686.rpm

The nvidia driver wont work with the rawhide kernel due to the extra debugging symbols.

The driver will work great with a normal kernel, the crap they add to the rawhide kernel prevents it working (this is a fedora only issue).

if I use the liveusb to go into the system, which file I could delete or modify ,so that I could enter the system through the harddisk,and then install the old akmod-nvidia to recovery my system.

ciao,
