Beta driver is the default in RHEL 8

This morning, noticed that the following beta driver is the default in Enterprise Linux 8 (EL8) when using the (stable?) CUDA RHEL8 YUM Repository. According to the release announcement and the (non-packaged) download page, this appears to be a ‘beta’ driver.

Is it intentional that a beta driver be the default of a (stable) YUM repository?

Looks like this beta driver is also being deployed in Ubuntu 18.04 from the stable cuda apt repo…

450.51.06 was pushed to the stable cuda repo, said driver version appears to still be flagged as beta.

I’m also seeing that kernel updates to EL8 are being skipped due to no kmod package being available for kernel 4.18.0-193.14.2

After re-imaging from CentOS8 to RHEL8, the warning about there being no kmod packages are gone, either that, or they were updated in the meantime.
