Whoa, Mark. Man, you must be tired. The fact that your machine with
the 290 driver only sees the kmod-nvidia for 295 and does not see
nvidia-x11-drv is a big clue.

You might want to double check the includepkgs= line on the machine you
originally posted about (not this latest machine), and make sure that it

I can duplicate this behavior very easily, and can duplicate the reverse
behavior as well, by manipulating the includepkgs= line. Here's an
example run, from a RHEL 6.3 machine (same would apply to CentOS, just
with a few differences in the yum output dealing with the RHN repos....):
Works fine.

The includpkgs= line has to include all dependencies, as it really does
do what the man page says it does. Try it without the includepkgs=
line, or with it commented out, and see if you get different results.

Thank you *so* much - this works. One oddity: originally, I'd had only
includepkgs=kmod-nvidia, *not* the nvidia-x11-drv. My last try, last week,
I'd added extra lines with that on two separate lines:

Just now, following your example, I put them on one line
includepkgs=nvidia-x11-drv kmod-nvidia

and it worked with no problem at all.


And for the guy from the elrepo team, you'll note it was *not* an elrepo
problem, which is what I'd suspected, unless the repodata file's changed
since Friday.
