Sorry, should have said I've got an old Geforce 4 MX card which is not

1.0.9639 is rather old, and isn't supported any longer. If this is
the latest that freshrpms is giving out, then they're out of date, and
you need to go elsewhere.

I just updated my FC6 server to F8 (replaced not upgraded) and installed
the nvidia-x11-drv-96xx driver from Freshrpms which has always worked
before and is working right now on my desktop. Both systems are running
the 64bit version of Fedora. Below is the make.log file from DKMS:

I've never looked at this file before so I don't know what I'm supposed
to see but the "cp" command looks funny as it appears to be trying to
copy a file onto itself. The module obviously fails to build and X fails
