I have been trying this for many hours and searching the forums.
I installed the nvidia beta driver 1.0.9626 from livna through yum in a hope to use the aiglx. However,
When I run glxgear
glxgears
Aborted

the following is my glxinfo output

Well, maybe you could try the NVIDIA rpms at freshrpms.net ?
I tried the Livna rpms first, they wouldn't work on my system.
glxgears runs fine here with the freshrpms.

Have you tried compiling the nVidia driver yourself?

-download nVidia driver from nvidia.com
-download and install kernel source yum install kernel-devel (or something like that)
-end x session (probably have to reboot with runlevel 3)
-run and compile nVidia driver (will need a bunch of x software development packages)
-resume x session (reboot with runlevel 5)

This worked for me. I don't really trust the pre-compiled software on the repos anymore.

thanks linshark11 and itshescottdog. After many tries finally it is working now but extremely unstable. The screen freezes when using aixgl. glxgear still aborted............
