'yum update' should do the job. You might want to do some stepwise
updates according to :


yum clean all
yum update glibc*
yum update yum* rpm* pyth*
yum clean all
yum update mkinitrd nash
yum update selinux*
yum update
shutdown -r now

I suggest you look into ELRepo's kmod-nvidia :


(You need to find the version that works for your device)

Once installed, there is no need to rebuild for each kernel update.
