Y'know, I appreciate any and all help, but I'm beginning to feel those
trying to help haven't actually *read* my previous posts. Jay suggested I
do a yum clean all, when I already said I'd done that; Ned's asking for
what the repo looks like, when I posted the top bit and said the rest of
the entries were the same....

Repeating my original post:
### Name: ELRepo.org Community Enterprise Linux Repository for el6
### URL: http://elrepo.org/

name=ELRepo.org Community Enterprise Linux Repository - el6

and the entries for elrepo-testing, elrepo-kernel, and elrepo-extras are
the same.

But the real question not about elrepo, which clearly *has* kmod-nvidia,
but why yum can't find the repo, and that is on target for this list.
