The problem is that you do not ONLY need kmod-nvidia ... you also need
"nvidia-x11-drv" from elrepo ... however, you only have
"includepkgs=kmod-nvidia" in your config, so the requirements of
"nvidia-x11-drv" can not be met.  If you add "nvidia-x11-drv" to your
includepkgs line, it should work fine.
