I was having same issues.  I just wiped out everything from Axels site,
and put it back, and it worked perfectly.

Yum remove nvidia-graphics8774
Yum remove nvndia-graphics
Yum remove nvndia-graphics-devices
Yum remove nvndia-graphics-helpers

Rebooted

Yum install nvidia-graphics8774
It got all the dependencies
Rebooted

Booyaw!  All is well.
