Solved: no package for dkms and libvdpau

yum install cuda-drivers fails due to missing dkms package!

Tried a couple of links but can’t access them due to restrictions in my environment. Can I get the missing dkms package from any authentic source?

yum install cuda-drivers gives me an error about dkms. It says package xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-390.30-1.el7.x86_64 requires libvdpau(x86-64 >=0.5

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest[/b]


You may get dependency from

dkms is available in the EPEL repo:

EPEL repo is installable with

yum -y install epel-release

Thanks Andrey1984 and nvidia.

Got it fixed and the driver is successfully installed and running :)

dkms and libvdpau x86_64 were required to fix it.

  1. dkms from []
  2. libvdpau from []

**Note: libvdpau package available in the EPEL repo doesn’t work! []
