-> Installation of the NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86
(version: 1.0-7184) is now complete. Please update your XF86Config or
xorg.conf file as appropriate; see the file
/usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README for details.


success!!!! after installing the devel and header files. however i have to reset my resolution upon bootup every time. i probably have installed too much stuff without knowing the good or bad. i will start from scratch (reinstall fc6)
im still interested about what you think about those lines. i did them without knowing they would do any good or not...

There is no need to reinstall FC6 from scratch unless you just want to do it for fun. The resolution is controlled in the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf. By default I run at a Depth of 24 and resolution 1280x1024; here is the relevant section from my xorg.conf file

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
#Device "CRT-0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
#Monitor "CRT-0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 16
Modes "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection

These lines are similar to what I do to compile vanilla (meaning non-Fedora) kernels so they make sense to me. I don't know if they're necessary with official Fedora kernels but since they worked it doesn't look like they hurt anything.

That makes sense. That way, you don't need --kernel-source-path. The touch line, I'm not so sure about: it makes a file called config.h. But what do I know...
I'm installing 1.0-8776.

Install finished successfully with headers, but now the startup halts at "Starting RPC idmapd". Advice?
EDIT: Never mind, it works fine with my Xen kernel, and on subsequent non-Xen reboots.
The driver installed successfully (I had to use the 9625 driver, though...), and I'm getting the NVidia splash. But GLXGears is running as slow as ever (277FPS, tops) and SuperTuxKart was unbearably SLOW! What's wrong?
EDIT 2: So was everything else I tried. Maybe it's AIGLX...

That doesn't sound like glx is loaded. Look for glx in the file /var/log/Xorg.0.log and see if it is actually loaded. Lines starting with (EE) indicate errors. Also, is the nvidia driver specified in /etc/x11/xorg.conf?

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "nVidia Corporation G70 [GeForce 7600 GT]"
EndSection

I added the "Driver "nvidia"" line myself. I'll look for the GLX loader in /etc/xorg.conf later.
