    nvidia package conflicts


    hi all,

    i am using ElRepo to install my nvidia driver as i have heard its the best way to do it rather than running the .run script that nvidia website provides

    https://elrepo.org/tiki/nvidia-detect

    but when i run "yum install kmod-nvidia" i run into this package conflict

    --> Processing Conflict: nvidia-x11-drv-340xx-340.107-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64 conflicts xorg-x11-drv-nvidia
    --> Finished Dependency Resolution
    Error: nvidia-x11-drv-340xx conflicts with 2org-x11-drv-nvidia-384.111-1.el7.x86_64
    You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
    You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

    im researching into the error myself but if anyone can help me out i would be much appreciated

    cheers,
    rob

    yea, your 'researching" by posting the same crap on a bunch of forums, like you always do. did your 'extensive research" try the two things that yum told you? since you 'heard" from someone how great doing it this way was, why dont you ask them?

    The instructions provided are for new driver installs. The package conflict literally tells you the package that's stopping it which is a different nvidia driver. Drop to a shell and remove the conflicting package and try again.
    Here are some great instructions...

    These drivers (340 and 384) are meant for different generations of nVidia cards. If 384 works then one definitely does not want to downgrade to previous generation.

    and it doesnt matter anyway since the op posts the exact same crap on about half dozen forums and never follows up. just carpet-bombs forums with his hand out.
