my negativo 17 repo is:

[fedora-nvidia]
name=negativo17 - Nvidia
baseurl=https://negativo17.org/repos/nvidia/fedora-$releasever/$basearch/
enabled=1
skip_if_unavailable=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://negativo17.org/repos/RPM-GPG-KEY-slaanesh
enabled_metadata=1
metadata_expire=6h
type=rpm-md
repo_gpgcheck=0

[fedora-nvidia-source]
name=negativo17 - Nvidia - Source
baseurl=https://negativo17.org/repos/nvidia/fedora-$releasever/SRPMS
enabled=0
skip_if_unavailable=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://negativo17.org/repos/RPM-GPG-KEY-slaanesh
enabled_metadata=1
metadata_expire=6h
type=rpm-md
repo_gpgcheck=0

but as is visible in Index of /repos/nvidia/fedora-34/x86_64 a lot of packages and updates are missing in the list. Any clue why dnf cannot get up to date with the repo?

As far as I know in order to show all of negativo’s packages you would need to have the multimedia repo enabled instead of the nvidia repo.Unless it has changed I haven’t used it in awhile you can not have rpmfusion and negativo enabled at the same time as they will conflict and negativo will not over ride rpmfusion.

Hum, by what I know fedora-nvidia is not dependent of fedora-multimedia. I’m a bit confused because there is a comment by the maintainer pointing only fedora-multimidia is not compatible as stated here:

Nvidia packages are just conflicting with the RPMFusion ones, while the multimedia repository is not compatible at all with RPMFusion.

Aparently there is a way to set priority or resolving the conflicts between RPMFusion and negativo17? Would be nice because I need Virtualbox.

From what I see there you have conflicting repos enabled.
cuda-fedora
rpmfusion
fedora-nvidia
and
updates-testing

several packages show in more than one repo and that leads to problems, if not now then later.

Personally I would suggest you clean up the repo that are enabled and only use the one(s) that are stable. I only use the regular fedora, updates, and the rpmfusion repos and don’t see the mess you displayed there.

I’m trying to move to negativo17 because it is more complete for CUDA and tensorflow, but you’re right, I will clean it, and see if it gets sane.

DNF lists only the latest package versions unless you specify the --showduplicates option.
So packages with the same name but older versions are hidden by default.
You can also customize the priority setting to prefer some repo over the others.

Still pretty much confused, don’t know what is going wrong: :thinking:

Finally found the problem.

After the cleanup, the problem persisted, moved back again to rpmfusion and the problem, still there, but now, a bunch of things from rpmfusion missing… Tried to install akmod-nvidia and after a careful filtering:

decided to give a look at dnf list modules:

[e] indicates enabled.

sudo dnf module disable nvidia-driver and bingo. Problem solved.

How this module was enable? I don’t know… I never used modules, never gave a dnf enable module ... in my life… now I will restore to a ~ 5 days ago snapshot to revert all this app manager squeezing and apply this fix an clean up my repo list a bit.

I find that every time I do an upgrade or new install the fedora modular repos are enabled. I hate the idea of the system taking actions during installs or updates that I don’t approve beforehand, so it is routine for me to disable the modular repos as soon as the install or uprade completes and before I do the first major update.

As such, with that practice, I have never had any issues whatsoever in out-of-sync packages. I know the use of flatpaks and modular repos is for the purpose of making it simpler for the newer user, but to me it seems to introduce complexity and sometimes conflicts in managing a system so I avoid both…

I’ve searched a bit and it appear not to be connected to default modules but something to do with a fail safe procedure that happens in specific conditions of a repo not being available or something like it, happens. This module disappeared after disabled… I was surprised because I dist-upgrade since 26 and have disabled modules a long time ago, and apart from this case, fedora-modular and fedora-update-modular are still disabled.
