Regarding your NVIDIA issue usually the people over at Livna  are
quite fast about pushing out a new RPM with a new kernel. When you do a
yum update and notice a new kernel make sure that a new kmod-nvidia is
in there too.
If you want to run a Linux distribution that has very little chance of
breaking with updates please take a look at Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Desktop or CentOS.
1: I am sure other RPM repositories are just as quick. I do not have
any experience with them though.
