They're not; there simply aren't livna kmod-nvidia packages that match
the latest F9 kernels; if you've got the latest F9 kernel then you won't
get a matching nVidia module, and hence no 3D.

To be absolutely certain of the state of the OP's system we'd ideally
need to see the outputs of 'yum list kmod-nvidia*', 'yum list kernel'
and 'uname -a', which would tell us which nVidia kernel module packages
they have installed, which kernels, and of those kernels, which they're
running. I'd guess that they'll have the most recent and most-recent
-but-one kernel, the kmod-nvidia package matching the most-recent-but
-one kernel, and they're running the most recent kernel.
