Newer distributions using SELinux may encounter problems with restrictions that prevent init scripts from executing certain commands related to kernel modules. Creating an SELinux rule exception is the correct solution, but may be difficult. A work-around is to insert "/usr/bin/setenforce 0" before running the NVIDIA installer, and "/usr/bin/setenforce 1" afterwards.

The RPM way of maintaining the NVidia driver nowadays can be found at http://elrepo.org/tiki/kmod-nvidia . This is preferable to the DKMS way that RPMforge provides.

To test the nvidia driver:  blacklist the nouveau and intel graphic modules, disable kernel mode-setting, and boot to runlevel 3 - all via the following kernel command line args:
 +
nouveau.disable=1 intel.disable=1 nomodeset 3  <--append this to grub kernel line
 +
Then run nvidia's xorg creation tool (nvidia-xconfig).  Give X a try and see if it works.
 +
 +
If that wont work, black list nouveau and nvidia, and try the intel module (delete the xorg.conf made by nvidia-xconfig):
 +
nouveau.disable=1 nomodeset 3  <-- append this to grub kernel line
 +
 +
The elrepo.org kmod-nvidia package already disables nouveau mode-setting (nouveau.modeset=0), blacklists the nouveau driver and runs nvidia-xconfig to create a suitable xorg.conf file.
