I upgraded to F10 and now I need to get my nvidia card working. I ran

yum install kmod-nvidia

which went fine except that I still don't have the gl graphics working.

514 > rpm -ql kmod-nvidia
(contains no files)


Ok, that's odd. So I then naively tried

[root at saturn ~]# rpm -e kmod-nvidia
error: Failed dependencies:
         kmod-nvidia >= 173.14.12-5.lvn9.1 is needed by (installed) 
kmod-nvidia-2.6.26.6-79.fc9.i686-173.14.12-5.lvn9.1.i686
         kmod-nvidia >= 177.82-1.fc10.4 is needed by (installed) 
kmod-nvidia-2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686-177.82-1.fc10.4.i686
[root at saturn ~]#


Since this is an upgrade, shouldn't the package be installed on top of the 
old one?

Anyone know what to do next?

TIA
