No, this is an argument for fixing yum so it can do partial repo updates
and not block on the first problem/conflict, and yum is FLOSS so it's
within Fedora mission, so work on getting yum fixed. (again, useful
feedback why do you insist on focusing on an issue no one but NVidia can

However to cut this thread short : unlike most technical posters you
think closed drivers could be supported with a reasonable amount of work
without hurting the rest of the system. So let's make a deal - maintain
the NVidia drivers in that-other-repo for six months, and if you make it
to the end without thinking as everyone else it's a total waste of time
and energy, we'll talk again.
