There's a kmod-nvidia available, but not the new kernel
on which it depends.

My standard repos are Fedora and Livna.

I assume by Fedora you mean also fedora-updates. Yes?

Yes ...

It appears that I'm not alone in noticing that the latest kernel,
kernel-, has been something of a problem.

I've had no problem installing kernel updates before this.  I did
install the fastestmirror plugin since then, but disabling it
hasn't helped.  I can see the RPM file kernel-
on <http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/updates/7/i386/>,
though I didn't see it there before my last post.

Yum just tells me the kernel package is a missing dependency.  Weird!
And in yumex, only '' series kernels are displayed under
the 'Available' context, possibly because that's the one I'm currently
running.  I've tried both yumex and 'yum update'; and 'yum search
kernel' finds no new kernels.

Is this likely to be a repository problem?  Running yum with debugging
on (yum -v -d 10 update) wasn't helpful.

Thanks for the response.
