Not that expect the right response, but you should change that to saying
that Livna is *one* place you can install them from.  There are
alternatives, people don't have to do it this way.

This is where recipes fall apart.  They're either too single-minded, and
lock out other options, or become complicated if/then/elses.

Simply doing "yum install kmod-nvidia" will only work if you have one of
the NVidia card supported by that package.  If you have an older one,
you'll have to work out which alternative package you'll need.  That may
involve reading from the nvidia website, really checking your hardware,
and a lot of head scratching.
