I need xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-275.09.07-1.fc15.i686

I installed updates last night, and although my 280.13 drivers work fine, I now do not have a working kernel module for VirtualBox. So I booted into my old kernel, and now the nvidia drivers tell me that they do not match the nvidia kernel module.

However, the old version of my nvidia drivers (275.09) was erased by last night's update and I had not turned on rpm caching for yum prior to downloading the 275.09 drivers in early July.

Please, how can I get access to the 275.09 drivers? I am missing work because of this.

There seems to be a problem getting the VirtualBox kernel module working with the 2.6.40 kernel, as documented in these other threads: 1500929 1500568

so my only choice is to revert back to the 2.6.38 kernel, but now my nvidia drivers don't work with my old kernel. I guess since I had both the 2.6.38 nvidia kernel module installed AND the 2.6.40 kernel module installed, yum/rpm felt it was OK to upgrade the drivers to the 280.13 version, which do not work with my old 2.6.38 kernel/nvidia module.

Sigh. I guess I will download the 275.09 drivers from nvidia and just install them over my rpms.

So I got it working by downloading the drivers from nvidia and manually copying the .so files over my current .so files so that at least I could remove them and replace them using yum when the problem with VirtualBox gets fixed.

My day would have been so much easier if yum were configured by default to cache RPMs, OR if new rpms from rpmfusion could exist along side the old versions for a while, so that it would be possible to roll back.
