I ran yum install nvidia-graphics again and it says there's nothign to
update - the driver is already installed. Here's the bits from

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "Panasonic"
        ModelName    "TH-50PX600A"
 ### Comment all HorizSync and VertSync values to use DDC:
        HorizSync    31.5 - 37.9
        VertRefresh  50.0 - 70.0
        Option      "dpms" "off"
        Option       "DPI" "100 x 100"

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     16
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     16
                Modes    "1366x768_60" "800x600" "640x480"
        ### Password file for built-in VNC - see vncpasswd util
        Option      "passwordFile" "/home/mythtv/.vnc/passwd"

And here's the error in Xorg.0.log if I try to use nvidia as the driver:
(II) LoadModule: "vnc"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libvnc.so
(II) Module vnc: vendor="RealVNC Ltd"
        compiled for, module version = 1.0.0
        Module class: X.Org Server Extension
        ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.2
(II) Loading extension VNC
(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module nvidia
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)
(II) LoadModule: "mouse"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/mouse_drv.so
(II) Module mouse: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
        compiled for 7.0.0, module version = 1.0.4
        Module class: X.Org XInput Driver
        ABI class: X.Org XInput driver, version 0.5

So at the moment X only runs if vesa is the driver. UNLESS - I go back
to version 8774 but that's no good because I need the ModePool in 9xxx
to get the right resolution on my new HD plasma TV. Could this be a
bug in the binary RPM package for the 9746 driver. perhaps?
