Recently i felt the need to upgrade the video card to an NVIDIA GT610 on my Fedora 17 system and with that thought installing the proprietary drivers might be a good idea. Lucky for me rpmfusion provides the drivers I am looking for installation.
First step is to make sure your are at the latest kernel, so run
$ sudo yum update kernel\* selinux-policy\*
and reboot after completed.
Second step is to make sure rpmfusion repository is on your system which it should be if you followed any other posts, but if not then run.
$ sudo yum --nogpgcheck install http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
Third step is to make sure you card is on the supported list here.
Fourth step is to install the drivers, now I am currently running x64 version of Fedora so the syntax is
sudo yum install akmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.x86_64
For 32 bit:
sudo yum install akmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686
For PAE enabled kernel
$ sudo yum install kmod-nvidia-PAE
Fifth step is to remove Open Source driver (nouveau)
$ su $ mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nouveau.img $ dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
Final step is to reboot and enjoy the NVIDIA driver!
