* Added support for Quadro FX 5600/4600 SDI and Quadro G-Sync II.
* Resolved a bug causing left and right eyes to be reversed in stereo mode on some Quadro FX GPUs.
* Fixed a problem that caused OpenGL to stop rendering to windows with origins at or beyond 4096 pixels (horizontally) on GeForce 8 and 9 GPUs.
* Fixed a bug causing some Quadro FX 4500 SDI configurations to take a long time to achieve synchronization.
* Added preliminary support for X.Org server 1.5.

* Addressed visual corruption when driving Cintiq 20WSX wide format tables with some GeForce 6 and 7 GPUs.
* Fixed OpenGL rendering corruption with textures compressed using the DXT5 compression algorithm.
* Fixed a regression that caused invalid EDIDs to be detected for the internal display device on some notebooks.
* Improved hotkey switching and power management support on some GeForce 8 notebooks.

* Fixed a bug that prevented the console from being restored correctly in SLI mode on GeForce 6 and 7 GPUs.
* Fixed interlaced modes on GeForce 8 GPUs.
* Fixed a problem that caused the synchronization signal polarity to always be positive for DVI devices on GeForce 8 and 9 GPUs.
* Resolved a problem resulting in X startup to fail on some GeForce 8 and 9 systems without swap space.

The new driver works fine with the F9 xorg version ( the driver is available from Livna )

FAIL

livna drivers do same thing as package from nvidia site... just flicker the text on the login screen 100 times really super fast then fails.. log file says "no devices found" although i can uninstall the nvidia drivers go back to "nv" and get video...

*sigh*

UPDATE: if you have this problem try adding your video card's BusID to your xorg.conf its working for me now, but now I get to wrestle xinerama and twinview huray!

I have been reading the threads and am quickly becoming frustrated and confused with what it is I need to do to get nvidia drivers with 3D rendering working on Fedora 9. Is there a clean and updated step by step howto for this?

Thanks,
Paul

Phenomenal! Thank your for quick and easy. Bleeding edge just requires a little bit of patience. Install worked like a charm.
