Re: nvidia package conflicts

found out the problem -

i removed the package and also as i was doing a "yum install kmod-nvidia" it was installing the rpmfusion version so i made it only look for the elrepo

yum remove -y nvidia-x11-drv-340xx-340.107-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64
yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=elrepo install kmod-nvidia
