Thinking that the compiled kmod-nvidia for the current kernel might now be in rpmfusion, I tried this:
[doug@cardraeh ~]$ yum search kmod-nvidia
... snipped lots of matches ...
kmod-nvidia-18.104.22.168-1.fc15.x86_64.x86_64 : nvidia kernel module(s) for 22.214.171.124-1.fc15.x86_64
So, let's install it:
[doug@cardraeh ~]$ sudo yum install kmod-nvidia-126.96.36.199-1.fc15.x86_64.x86_64
... snip ...
Package 1:kmod-nvidia-188.8.131.52-1.fc15.x86_64-280.13-2.fc15.7.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
So, let's force it to update:
[doug@cardraeh ~]$ sudo yum reinstall kmod-nvidia-184.108.40.206-1.fc15.x86_64.x86_64
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit

That installed a 3.3Mb kmod-nvidia

Now to see what happens when I reboot.
... and it worked! EXCEPT that I now have no Bluetooth drivers! AAAAAARGH!
Anyway, the kmod-nvidia problem must have been due to akmods compiling a dud copy of the driver, which resisted all efforts to remove until I forced the reinstall of the compiled package from rpmfusion.
Thanks very much for walking me through this. I now know more than I did.
Now, how the BH do I get Bluetooth up and running? I use a Bluetooth mouse and it is horrendous using the touchpad. Sigh.
... 's orright. I powered down, restarted and Bluetooth came back.
All working fine now. Thank you linesmen, thank you ball boys.
