Comment 1 Chuck Ebbert 2007-05-31 17:28:43 EDT
We don't ship or support kmod-nvidia.

However it is known to work with the latest kernel; if it is available
during update it will be installed. Looks like your repo for that
package wasn't up-to-date.

Should be installable with "yum install kmod-nvidia"
