[CentOS] Software Updater issue

For some reason the Software Updater thought it would be interesting for
me if it upgraded my nvidia 304 driver with the nvidia 310.32-1 driver.
That would be nice if the 310 driver supported my crusty old GS 7600
but it doesn't. I had to run two yum downgrade sessions to get it back
to working again. First downgrade brought me 310.19-2, which doesn't
support my video card, in place of 310.32. The second downgrade
restored the 304 driver.
I'm not sure about this but that seems like a bug when it thinks that
the 310 driver package is an upgrade for the 304 driver package.
