Description Gaston Verhulst 2009-09-09 16:39:22 UTC
Description of problem:
Receiving new update packages for a new kernel and a new nvidia driver, I see that the version numbers, especially the last one for kmod-nvidia,are not the same
---> Package kernel.i586 0: set to be installed
---> Package kernel-firmware.noarch 0: set to be updated
---> Package kernel-headers.i586 0: set to be updated
---> Package kmod-nvidia-173xx.i586 0:173.14.20-1.fc11 set to be updated
---> Package kmod-nvidia-173xx- 0:173.14.20-1.fc11 set to be updated
To start Fedora successfully, the kernel and kmod-nvidia have to be the same version.
E.g. now I have:
[gastonv@d515202bf ~]$ yum list installed | grep kernel
kernel.i586                            @updates 
kernel-firmware.noarch                 @updates 
kernel-headers.i586                    @updates
[gastonv@d515202bf ~]$ yum list installed | grep kmod-nvidia
kmod-nvidia-173xx.i586                  173.14.18-2.fc11.17            @rpmfusion-nonfree-updates
Awaiting for a newer kmod-nvidia package and/or a new kernel, I don't make the update.
Thanks in advance for any answer,
Gaston Verhulst.

This morning, I saw there was a new kmod-nvidia for the new kernel.
So, I could safely make the new kernel and nvidia update.
The could successfully restart the system.
I am very happy that I can say that the problem is solved.
Many greetings,
Gaston Verhulst.

Comment 2 Juan P. Daza P. 2009-12-04 01:42:34 UTC
This is due to a time difference between the kernel release in the fedora repository and the package kmod-nvidia provided by rpmfusion repository.
