Well, that should go to Thomas Gleixner and all the other kernel gurus 
that keep patches rolling out...

I just released packages for akmod-nvidia for both fc13 in 
planetcore-testing (updated to the latest version) and fc14, available 
in the planetcore repository directly.

If you install the akmod-nvidia package the binary module should be 
rebuild on the next boot (don't forget to install the kernel-rtPAE-devel 
or kernel-rt-devel packages).
