kmod-nvidia-340xx.x86_64 for centos 7 kernel 3.10.0-229.20.1.el7.x86_64

I just installed centos 7 upgraded, etc.

>sudo yum update
No Packages to Update
>sudo yum upgrade
No Packages to Upgrade

I followed the instructions to install elrepo.

When I try:
>sudo yum install kmod-nvidia-340xx.x86_64

I get:

I don’t think i can upgrade my kernel…so how do i find kmod-nvidia for my kernel

Answer

It appears that elrepo has built their kernel module against the (pre-release, at the time) CentOS 7.2 kernel, 3.10.0-327.

[mirror@saurok mirrors]$ ls -l centos/7.2.1511/os/x86_64/Packages/kernel-3.10.0-327.el7.x86_64.rpm
-rw-rw-r--. 2 mirror mirror 34633276 Nov 25 09:48 centos/7.2.1511/os/x86_64/Packages/kernel-3.10.0-327.el7.x86_64.rpm

I’m not entirely sure why they did that; it may be worth asking them directly if you’re curious.

CentOS 7.2 is now becoming available on mirrors worldwide (it landed on my local mirror a few hours ago) and you should be able to access it within the next few days.
