The latest update to Nvidia driver akmod-nvidia-520.56.06-1 is causing flickering with my laptop display.
I have seen this issue also with OpenSUSE Tumbleweed & the official Nvidia driver installer. So I’m pretty sure it is an issue with the driver and not Fedora/Rpmfusion.
I want to downgrade and switch back to akmod-nvidia-515.76-1 but the packages are not in the repository anymore (rpmfusion-nonfree-updates).
Is there a location where I could still download akmod-nvidia-515.76-1 packages and it’s dependencies to perform a downgrade?
I do have a BTRFS snapshot to fall back to but would prefer to use dnf to downgrade the packages.

How about the
nvidia*kmod packages? I think they generate the
kmod-nvidia packages. For example:

That’s it. Thanks!
I found the build for
nvidia-kmod-515.76-1.fc36 with links to the rpm packages for
I was searching Koji for
kmod-nvidia because the Rpmfusion Nvidia Howto mentions
sudo dnf install akmod-nvidia and it is what my package list shows:
$ rpm -qa | grep '520.56.06' | sort
It just confused me that the “build” and “package name” in Koji is
nvidia-kmod but produces the package
Thanks a lot for the help.

Yeh, koji lists packages by their source package name (used for the spec etc.), but a source package can produce different rpms as sub-packages, and even not generate a primary package. So this must be the case here. The spec/source package is nvidia-kmod, and it produces rpms akmod-nvidia/kmod-nvidia.
