Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:22:49 EST
Description of problem:
running 'yumex' or 'yum update' returns that there is an update to xorg-x11-drv-ati even if i dont have an ATI gfx and thus dont have the prev xorg-x11-drv-ati installed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 17
I installed xorg-x11-drv-nvidia (I have an Nvidia gtx 260) and then after restarting and performing 'yumex' or 'yum update' i get an update for the ati driver
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install nvidia driver from rpmfusion
3.run 'yum update'
yum gives an update for ati driver that is not even installed in system
not return an update for a package not installed

xorg-x11-drv-ati is part of a default fedora X11 installation and so is a lot of other xorg-x11-drv-* drivers. So X can support a lot of graphics adapters out of the box.
you can check 'yum list xorg-x11-drv-ati' so see it.

ofc i understand that but its a package like all others its not installed by default. in my system that has an nvidia gfx only driver installed was then nouveau driver. After installing the nvidia driver yum update tells me to install ati driver too? why? i don't have an ati card.
I don't matter what gfx card you have, X will have installed a lot of drivers for different hardware to make it work out of the box if you change your gfx card.
The xorg-x11-drv-ati is not releated to installing the nvidia driver, the update just popped up at the same time.
sudo yum history pkg-list xorg-x11-drv-ati
and you will see that xorg-x11-drv-ati when the system was installed.
