This appears to be likely to cause a problem.  The kernel module is
likely to be the one from RPMfusion, but the client is from some other
source (nVidia directly, maybe?).  It's not at all surprising that the
version mismatch would cause a failure.

I think this probably means that you don't have the kernel-devel RPM for
that kernel.

If you got that from RPMfusion, it's from the
rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing repo.  I haven't tried that yet, but
the akmod-nvidia-185.18.14-1.fc11.x86_64 one is the one that worked for
me.  If you didn't get it from RPMfusion, you might want to remove all
traces of it from wherever it came from and start from scratch with
akmod-nvidia.
