kmod-nvidia-304xx provides the NVIDIA 304xx legacy driver kernel module (nvidia.ko). It is built to depend upon the specific ABI provided by a range of releases of the same variant of the Linux kernel and not on any one specific build.

nvidia-x11-drv-304xx provides the proprietary NVIDIA 304xx legacy binary OpenGL X11 display driver files.

If you have kmod-nvidia installed, uninstall it first by running yum erase kmod-nvidia nvidia-x11-drv.

yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=elrepo install kmod-nvidia-304xx nvidia-x11-drv-304xx

After installing / updating these packages, users are advised to reboot their system. Simply restarting X may not suffice, one needs to drop out of X, remove and reload the nvidia kernel module and restart X. For most end users, a reboot will be simpler ;)

Notes for users who used Nvidia's binary installer
Users who have installed the driver by running the binary installer provided by Nvidia are advised to uninstall it before attempting to install kmod-nvidia. Run the same script that was used for the installation by adding a --uninstall flag. For example:

sh ./ --uninstall
