are akmod-nvidia and kmod-nvidia exclusive?

I've got akmod-nvidia and kmod-nvidia installed and I'm constantly getting this error:
Transaction Check Error:
  file /lib/modules/ from install of kmod-nvidia- conflicts with file from package kmod-nvidia-
  file /lib/modules/ from install of kmod-nvidia- conflicts with filefrom package kmod-nvidia-
Are you not supposed to use them at the same time?

My kernels are:
and kmod-nvidia/akmod-nvidia are:
rpm -qa | grep kmod-nvidia
the repos have a newer nvidia driver 180.29-1 ...

They're not exclusive, akmod-nvidia will generate kmod-nvidia packages actually... Do you have the yum-fedorakmod plugin installed? There's a bug in it that causes those errors.
