Can you please tell me how I would go about doing it?
First make sure your packages will not be automatically updated again.
Download all x86_64 packages and the i686 versions of
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs and xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-cuda (or all i686 if
you are running Fedora i686; skip the i686 packages if you are running a
clean x86_64-only system) from
Get the corresponding akmod-nvidia package for your architecture (just
one, NOT the x86_64 AND the i686) from
check with "rpm -qa | grep nvidia" that you have downloaded replacements
for every package except for kmod-nvidia
run "dnf --allowerasing install *.rpm" in the directory you have
downloaded the packages into (clean directory with just the downloadad
RPMs). Only the kmod-nvidia packages should be listed for removal, if it
wants to remove more, you likely did something wrong and should not proceed.
Wait some time for akmods to build and install the kmod-nvidia package
for your running kernel.
