Fedora release 18 (Spherical Cow)
[ra@hamburger ~]$ rpm -qa | grep -i nvidia
I managed to build the srpm's without much issue (and without changing anything). I
did have issues installing the resulting rpm's but I solved that by removing the old
My only remaining problem is when new kernels are released in updates. I have to boot the
new kernel to runlevel 3 and rebuild the kmod again. But Im sure there is a much better
way to do that :)

I have been building the 310 driver for F18 for quite some time. It
works well and builds easily. You can information on how to build it
I also have built the 313 drivers successfully, but haven't tried
installing them. I did try building the 319 drivers, which built but
failed on the install. It appears that there are some issues with
the 3.9 kernel (perhaps??, not sure).

rpmbuild --rebuild works ... , but if you have 64 bits you might have
build for i686 also which is not easy with rpmbuild, so for this
and others, I prefer use mock:
mock -r fedora-18-x86_64-rpmfusion_nonfree --rebuild src.rpm
mock -r fedora-18-i386-rpmfusion_nonfree --rebuild src.rpm
you need install mock and configure it
and also install from rpmfusion
to have mock config files for fedora-18-x86_64-rpmfusion_nonfree.
Go luck :)
