On server x display configuration it continues say seperate screen x requires restart even after I ran the nvidia-xconfig in the terminal(now I can change my resolution but I still can't use twinview. I only have one monitor hooked up.
And opengl/glx information doesn't show up.
How do I tell if it is just a nvidia-settings bug, nvidia xconfig bug, or my driver has problems.
I know it is atleast partially working for I'm no longer in fall backmode.
Also even though it doesn't show it in my xorg.conf file the nvidia-xserver-settings
detects my display. It's a hp mx70.

If you would like screenshots of the nvidia x server settings, just let me know.

Re: Problems with nvidia geforce fx 5500 using 173.14.35-1

I thought I add that even though it doesn't specify gnome3 failed I believe I am still in fall back mode from the screen shots I have seen of fedora 17 or atleast certain 3d features aren't enabled. The settings for fall back mode are turn off which doesn't make sense. I tried earlier version I got fedora but got currption of the gnome shell. This is the first version I didn't. Anybody have nvidia geforce fx5500 and is their a way to to make it work correctly with nvidia 173xx driver?

You're not the only one having issues with Nvidia 173.* driver!
Perhaps it can be useful for you to have a look at this thread: NVidia FX series with F17 (from message #8 onwards).
