nvidia-kmod and wine


i ran into a strange dependency problem with wine-1.1.29 and nvidia-kmod, both from the fedora and rpmfusion repositories (f11 64bit). i prefer to use the latest nvidia .run driver, currently version 190.36 from nvidia.com. when i perform a 'yum install wine' it wants to install nvidia-kmod in version 185.18.36 and several other packages. they will overwrite the installed 190.36 and mess up xorg.conf. i were trying to follow leigh's guide http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=204752 post #4, it will remove all wine packages for some reason and if i try to reinstall wine it will force 185.18.36 to be installed again.

yum reinstall wine*

 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs  x86_64  185.18.36-1.fc11    rpmfusion-nonfree-updates  7.6 M
what's the point of making nvidia-kmod a dependency for wine ??
i want to use the new 190.36 and not the old 185.xx garbage which had many bugs for me. as workaround i had to do:
 rpm --erase --nodeps kmod-nvidia
any suggestions ?

That wasn't a workaround. That's what you needed to do. But you probably should have used: 'yum erase akmod-nvidia' instead of the rpm -e command you used.
~/> yum deplist wine-core | grep -B3 nvidia
  dependency: libGL.so.1
   provider: mesa-libGL.i386 7.0.2-3.fc8
   provider: mesa-libGL.i386 7.0.1-7.fc8
   provider: xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i386 173.14.12-2.fc8
   provider: xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-beta-libs.i386 177.61.02-1.fc8
   provider: xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-libs.i386 8.542-2.8.10.fc8
   provider: xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-96xx-libs.i386 96.43.07-2.fc8
   provider: xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-legacy-libs.i386 71.86.06-2.fc8
   provider: xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-newest-libs.i386 177.82-1.fc8
As long as you have the akmod-nvidia installed, wine-core is tied to a dep that akmod-nvidia provides.

thanks for the quick reply

like i said 'yum erase kmod-nvidia' (or akmod) will uninstall the wine-core package, i saw no other way than using a --nodeps option. now i don't got any kmod/akmod package installed and its still the same behaviour. same for mesa packages, a 'yum reinstall mesa*' (which is necessary after installing nvidia .run driver) will try to install the old 185.18.36 driver again. i'm not sure if this is meant to be but since its working i leave it for now. its either a fedora/rpmfusion problem or nvidia's driver not pointing other packages to libGL.so.1 though it always worked before and now i got a clean f11 installation and it don't.
