The reason I am bringing this up is because its highly atypical.  I
waited overnight just to be sure that it wasn't a mirror propagation
time issue and in fact, its NOT. 

# yum update

No Packages marked for Update                 

# yum list kmod-nvidia* | grep 19 
<empty response>

The two packages being excluded are related to mythtv.

Why am I not seeing kmod-nvidia for this kernel ?
