I just installed centos 7 upgraded, etc.

>sudo yum update No Packages to Update >sudo yum upgrade No Packages to Upgrade

I followed the instructions to install elrepo.

When I try: >sudo yum install kmod-nvidia-340xx.x86_64

I get:

  • You should report this to elrepo. They've built against a pre-release kernel which isn't officially available yet. – Michael Hampton Dec 8 '15 at 21:55
  • @MichaelHampton ok, i've never done that before i'll try to figure it out. Is there a version of the elrepo i could use via yum? – hba Dec 8 '15 at 22:34

It appears that elrepo has built their kernel module against the (pre-release, at the time) CentOS 7.2 kernel, 3.10.0-327.

[mirror@saurok mirrors]$ ls -l centos/7.2.1511/os/x86_64/Packages/kernel-3.10.0-327.el7.x86_64.rpm
-rw-rw-r--. 2 mirror mirror 34633276 Nov 25 09:48 centos/7.2.1511/os/x86_64/Packages/kernel-3.10.0-327.el7.x86_64.rpm

I'm not entirely sure why they did that; it may be worth asking them directly if you're curious.

CentOS 7.2 is now becoming available on mirrors worldwide (it landed on my local mirror a few hours ago) and you should be able to access it within the next few days.
