Exclamation Possibly a real bad repo problem ati update for nvidia machine.

I just noticed this but this looks really bad.

I have a dell xps 1530 with a nvidia card. Looking over the updates in xyum it states this as an update.

: X.org X11 ati video driver.

"Why would update think I have a ati card" and it is not showing a update for my nvidia card. This looks really bad to me as in scary, would not want a config problem cooking my laptop or parts.

Not to worry, as the xorg-x11-drv-ati rpm is/was part of the original installation that you did.
It provides the basic radeon_drv.so

This is just an update to that.

This is not a problem: the RPM package xorg-x11-drv-ati is a standard X11/X.Org driver package supplied with Fedora, and will be updated accordingly. There are numerous video driver packages xorg-x11-drv-* installed by default. Simply ignore such updates.

Although it's theoretically perfectly possible to remove all unnecessary drivers, video and otherwise, the effort is not worth the small HDD space savings, IMO.

This is completely off-topic, but Omni-Tom, I really like your signature! It reminds me of my dear **cough** neurotic **cough** grandmother's life. Unfortunately, I've inherited some of her **cough** "concerns".
