I would like an nvidia driver for this kernel.  It doesn't seem to be
available.

Could someone rectify this ?

Best to report issues like this the repo and package maintainers(¹) as that will make sure the issues gets known and fixed as soon as possible.

Mentioning a important problem like this it on some list or forum in most cases won't help (or will just delay getting the problem solved), as it's impossible for the repo maintainers to closely monitor all Fedora specific mailing lists and webforums -- there are hundreds of them all over the net and some are even using different languages than English.

But a little bird told me that the livna repo maintainers by pure luck got aware of the issue; they apologize for the problem (²) and a updated nvidia kmod will be in the master repos in round about half and hour(³).

(¹) preferred way is via bugzilla.livna.org or bugzilla.rpmfusion.org for Livna and RPM Fusion. Asking on IRC in the channels #livna or #rpmfusion on freenode can work as well and is easier, but bugzilla works more reliable

(²) all other updated kmods had been rebuild and pushed to the F8 and F9 repos a few days ago already; but the nvidia kmod due to some stupid problem got lost :-/

(³) yum might not see it by then due to mirror delays and metadata caching
