I suppose the epel kmod-nvidia might count - it will allow CUDA apps to
run but you can't develop with it.

I use the nVidia repo for CUDA. It seems to work OK and you don't need
to compile anything as far as I can see. Sorry if you already know
this, but you can get it from 


sorry for the long URL - if you want go to 


and click through the selections. Ultimately you just do a 'yum install
cuda' and it installs everything you need for a CUDA development
environment including the kernel drivers - and it's kept up to date.
