Hello everybody, I'm new to list...
If you don't have apt installed you can download the kernel-devel package


(I know it's a dirty trick)

Take a look into your /etc/yum.repos.d directory, if you have the 
repository enabled you should be able to install the package with a

yum install kernel-2.6.16-1.2080.13.rrt.rhfc4.ccrma.i686

Now I'm running a fc5 with the latest rrt kernel. I rebuilt the nvidia
package from livna successfully, it seems to work, though sometimes it 
and freezes my screen.
One month ago I was using fc4 with a rrt kernel, and I rebuilt the nvidia
package from livna there too. Same problem as in fc5: had some occasionally
X crash...

I apologise for my bad english, but I'm Italian, you know...
pizza, spaghetti, mandolino and all that stuff.
Not a word of english in my whole life before!!!

Hope I helped.

Ciao, ClaudioT.
