Howto install nvidia drivers on fedora 11

Greetings to you all , As for myself , I think Linux is an excellent example of Open Source products . And among different distributions , I think Ubuntu , Fedora and OpenSUSE are all great choices for you .

However , there are still some trouble in enjoying the 3D effect on Linux because of the commercial copyright of the Video Drivers ,which means most of them cannot add those drivers to their CDs even they are free of charge in fact . Fortunately , Nowadays It’s more and more  for us common users to install them manually .

Today , I ‘ll tell you how to install the official driver from Nvidia on coming-soon Fedora 11 .
