As I said, I don't believe rpmfusion, a repository not supported by Red
Hat/Fedora,  could block a kernel update.

I used akmod once because kmod wasn't provided. It didn't work.,, for me,
though it seems that it worked for some peopke on this list. I have no idea
how theses things work but maybe they have problems making kmod work for
every card??? Anyway, working with akmod was not a pleasant experience for
me and I've sworn I'd never get back to it,

It's now 4 days that the latest kernel has been released and the equivalent
quernel module is still not available.
