I have found that I need to use the following nvidia drivers with I
think are not the ones mentioned in the wilsonet document.
yum -y install nvidia-graphics8756-kmdl-$KVER
yum -y install nvidia-graphics8756
I issue those two commands after an installation and my nvidia card
displays x fine. I initially needed to issue those commands after any
upgrade but that is not the case now.

I have been using Myth .19 for a while now, and when
.20 came out I went to start fresh with a clean fedora install.
Previously I was using the Mythdora package, but that caused some
problems during the install. I started following the directions from:
http://wilsonet.com/mythtv/fcmyth.php (Fedora Myth(TV)ology:)
Everything was working great after the initial steps, but
immediately after installing the ivtv packages with yum, X11 would no
longer start up. I tested this a couple times to make sure I wasn't
doing anything too foolish, and I got with the same results. Any
suggestions at all would be great. I have no idea where to start.
Errors are that the glx module doesn't load, however, this hasn't
changed from before I installed ivtv. The offending lines are:
undefined symbol: _nv001205gl
(EE) Failed to load
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 7)
Thanks for any help.

I doubt that ivtv is the culprit. From my understanding it gives you
video entries but it doesn't have anything to do with the xwindows
system. Have you tried rolling back to the preloaded nvidia drivers and
seeing if you can get it going with that. You might also reinstall the
nvidia binary and see if it will fix itself. Your xorg.conf file and
what driver you are using might help.
