I'll preface by saying that I continue to boot into Windows to play EVE. But do log into EVE in Linux once in a while just to do something quickly.
I'm using nVidia's 260.19.36 driver with my 9600 GT card in Ubuntu 10.10 (32 bit)
I haven't yet experienced any graphical problems with this driver (all settings on high) other than the character creator screen being a little choppy, but usable.
The reason that I continue to reboot into Windows to play EVE is due to random client crashes. I don't believe that they are graphics related, but I don't know for certain. These become more frequent with two clients open, as I normally do.
Being the Linux newbie that I am, I don't know if the following command lines will work for you on Fedora. But, I'll leave them anyway for anyone else reading this. This will install the current nVidia driver loaded into the corresponding repository onto your system.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/nvidia
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-current-modaliases nvidia-settings
The driver version number is the same for the 32 vs. 64 bit operating system, so I don't know if the driver is actually any different.
I hope this helps.
