Fedora19 nVidia drivers problem

Okay, first of all - sorry for my bad english, it is not my native language and I am mad out of my mind right now. I am green to linux.

After meeting variety of errors and giving up on akmod and kmod after installing which I can't even boot linux I've encountered this problem (oh, the card is nVidia210 and the drivers version - 304.64 - on this version I was able to proceed that far (relatively).

So, the problem is:

nvidia-installer log file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' creation time: Sat Oct 12 14:06:10 2013 installer version: 304.64

PATH: /sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin

Please see the file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

If You got any clue how to help me, please do. Thanks and have a great day.
