Hey All,

Heads up!

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.
