Comment 1 Alexei Podtelezhnikov 2007-11-10 23:22:16 EST
something is wrong with a mirror. I have that kernel installed.
yum clean all
yum update
Comment 2 Simon Roberts 2007-11-11 00:49:06 EST
kmod-nvidia is from livna, and it is dependent on a kernel package that isn't
available on most mirrors yet.
Comment 3 Landon Kelsey 2007-11-11 01:06:37 EST

yum install kmod-nvidia

worked fine after installing F8

and solved the problem of the screensaver running slow (same problem on F7

This yum install kmod-nvidia was recommended on the Mauriat Miranda site for F8
Comment 4 Dan Emmons 2007-11-13 06:23:06 EST
yum updates are breaking dependencies with livna kmods now, i think, because
something is making yum try to remove the old kernel when it updates to a new
one. since i started using fc6, it has always allowed the latest kernel to live
side by side with the one it replaced for safety. this stopped when i installed
f8. we can  download the kernel manually and install with rpm -i though, i hear.
Comment 5 Landon Kelsey 2007-11-13 11:55:22 EST

(1) I installed F8 and the automatic yum did an instant update

(2) I installed livna

(3) I did a yum install kmod-nvidia (details on the other OS) and solved my 
screensaver running too slow)

(4) and later came a automatic yum update that got the error

I had seen no kernel updates at any point
Comment 6 Florian Festi 2007-11-14 07:55:24 EST
(In reply to comment #4)
install_only moved to the yum core and no longer is a yum plugin. If you just
updated you installation you might need to adjust your configuration to reflect
that. Have a look into the yum config files shipped with the current yum.
Comment 7 Thorsten Leemhuis 2007-11-14 15:22:21 EST
the initial comment in this bug looks like mirror issues (the kmod from livna
was available before the Fedora mirror had the matching kernel for it)

Comment #4 is likely about Bug 330711 

Comment #5 -- no idea what that's about without a detailed error message, but
likely 330711 as well
