Unable to install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 on Fedora 25

I installed the latest proprietary nvidia driver using rpmfusion on fedora workstation 25:

$ dnf list installed | grep nvidia
akmod-nvidia.x86_64                   1:375.20-1.fc26           @rpmfusion-nonfree-rawhide
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia.x86_64            1:375.20-1.fc26           @rpmfusion-nonfree-rawhide
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-kmodsrc.x86_64    1:375.20-1.fc26           @rpmfusion-nonfree-rawhide
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.x86_64       1:375.20-1.fc26           @rpmfusion-nonfree-rawhide

However, steam seems to require a 32bit version of xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs. This is also listed here as a requirement for 64 bit users.

I tried running the command in the fedora documentation above, but getting the following response:

$ sudo dnf install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686
No package xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 available.
Error: Unable to find a match.

I'm new to Fedora so I wondered if I had to somehow enable 32 bit packages, but a simple dnf list installed | grep i686 shows plenty of those packages.

Am I doing something wrong, or is the package just missing?

Why are you using rawhide nvidia packages?, f25 nvidia is in rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing


sudo dnf --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686

Well, seem as the rpmfusion-nonfree repository is not providing nvidia drivers...

dnf --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-updates install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia
