[PlanetCCRMA] Nvidia Driver with fc12 Testing Kernel

I found this patch somewhere in the Nvidia forums.  You'll need to extract  
the driver (use the "-x" switch) in order to apply it.  Cd to the top  
level of the driver directory and do patch -p1 < nvidia_33_rt.patch.  It  
will probably ask you which file to apply the patch to.  If you're  
installing the latest version of the driver then apply it to  
kernel/nv-linux.h.  I believe older versions of the driver will need the  
patch applied to usr/src/nv/nv-linux.h.
