[mythtv-users] Software Update always results in X not starting

In all my searching trying to remove and install nvidia drivers, I
found that that yum had a GUI version called yumex. So I installed
# yum install yumex
When it finished the install, I opened up "Yum Extender" from the
"System Tools" menu. I searched for "kmon-nvidia" and there was a
version for my kernel! An install and a reboot later, I had great
control of the two video ports connected to my computer.
This website also helped with yumex and the nvidia driver install:
Unfortunately, X Windows would crap out whenever I launched MythTV
and I would be returned to the login screen. The same problem would
occur when I would try to click on the "OpenGL/GLX Information" in
the "nVidia Display Settings" under the "System Tools" menu. I
edited xorg.conf and commented out Load "glx". That solved the
problem. The mysterious part is, Load "glx" somehow got uncommented
and the problem is not occurring. Strange...
The questions I still have are:
How do I know what kernel version will result from a Software Update?
How do I know that yum will have a nvidia version for my next kernel?
How does everybody out there coordinate the two so easily?

It took me four months to build this MythTV box and I'm discouraged
to try to upgrade. I'd say I'm 95% satisfied with everything on the
computer and really hesitate to update unless things stay continually
broken. I will prepare myself for "that day" though.
