What are the dependencies i need to install for this driver so it can compile the kernel headers or what is the name of the kernel header package itself?

I'm new to this whole YUM and RPM thing.... I'm and apt-get, DEB guy...

I was able to get it working using RPMfusion repo's but I'd like to know the other way.

Code:
rpm -Uvh http://ftp-stud.fht-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/rpm.livna.org/livna-release-10.rpm  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
Code:
yum install kmod-nvidia

Read my guide!!!! It will work the same for fedora 10 even though it was written about fedora 8
EDIT: Ignore the SLI part though, stop before the whole SLI part

I do it the old fashioned way: download the Linux driver from NVIDIA website, stop X, install.

To stop X, "ctrl+alt+F3", login as root, change to runlevel 3 (init 3). point to the driver.run file and execute it. It will compile a kernel module, and update xorg.conf by itself. reboot (init 6).

The only thing I didn't know is what package is required to compile the kernel module, I know in ubuntu its "build-essential"

For Fedora 10, the default "personal desktop" installation has every dependency NVIDIA installer needs.

It could not complete the installation for me, I did the "Personal Desktop" installation and it could not compile the kernel module whatsoever.

Then it doesn't really sound like a dependency issue.
