The recent xorg-x11 update probably "broke" your nvidia install.  Since
nvidia refuses to use an RPM-based installer (they claim it is "too
complicated") you have to reinstall the nvidia driver after every xorg-
x11 update.  The nvidia driver replaces xorg-x11 libGL files, but
without corresponding entries in the RPM database the RPM system has no
way of preventing the driver from being overwritten on updates.
