Stop double posing, it irritates people and its against forum rules. Either have patience and wait for someone to be kind enought to offer some help or use google and search for an answer for yourself.

whait a sec!! xorg.conf says

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
BoardName "GeForce 8600M GS"
EndSection

and /sbin/lspci | grep VGA says

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Unknown device 0425 (rev a1)

...This shouldn't really work, but give it a shot.
Code:
yum remove kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-devel xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-32bit xorg-x11-drv-nvidia livna-config-display
yum install kmod-nvidia-96xx
Then restart your system and give your apps another try.
