nvidia nforce 610i/7050 (SOLVED with 173 drivers on F9)

This is my first post here (because I don't have any problem I can't solve with fedora)

I have bought a new PC,
it's based on nvidia shipset
as usual every thing works!

the sound, the Ethernet ..etc.

and I every body else I needed the accelerated drivers
and I did as suggested, I did not use the tarball of nvidia
I used the livna package
anyway, it worked but it needed a restart because the kernel
was also upgraded (usual my beloved fedora don't need reboot, but this time was different because of a security update of the kernel)

before doing this I did
su -
then I added the packages
and it works ...BUT

but there is something very strange and here comes the problem
[CODE]bash$ glxinfo | grep direct
Error: glXCreateContext failed
bash$ glxgears 
Error: glXCreateContext failed
what does this mean ?

here is the card wiki on smolts

please people do what I did
install smlot and contribute to fedora it costs you nothing, it just help others
yum install smolt-gui

I think that your video chipset is not supported...

nForce 610i/GeForce7050 for Linux 32-bit/64-bit comes up empty = no driver support.
