Install of NVIDIA driver (v 319.32 & v325.08) on updated Fedora 19 64bit kernels fails ...

Hello friends:

The following worked flawlessly before, but suddenly it does not.

For my Fedora 19 O/S (64 bit) I use the nVidia drivers supplied by nVidia,
not the drivers provided in the Fedora repository.

To install it, I boot into the relevant Fedora kernel and, as root from the CLI
(i.e. no X or graphics running), I simply run the installer,".

Everything succeeds without issue when I do that for the following kernel:

Fedora kernel: 3.9.9-302.fc19.x86_64 (Install works).

Eventually new kernels from Fedora become available, and each one requires
the same installation procedure:

(1) Boot into the new kernel.
(2) As root from the CLI (i.e. X windows not running), run the installer,

Sadly, what worked for the kernel above does not work for the following
two kernels (that came after the above):

Fedora kernel: 3.10.3-300.fc19.x86_64 (Installer fails for this kernel).
Fedora kernel: 3.10.4-300.fc19.x86_64 (Installer fails for this kernel).

Below is the failure message (install log file output). I can see where the errors
occur, but do not know how to fix them. Can anyone provide suggestions?

Thanks in advance. (See below).

325.08 doesn’t support the Linux 3.10 kernel. Does this still happen with 325.15?
