I've got rev. 1.208 builded and installed ...with nodeps:

~:  rpm -V kernel-video-nvidia-180.29-1 at 2.6.25usPAE.athlon
Unsatisfied dependencies for kernel-video-nvidia-180.29-1 at 2.6.25usPAE.athlon:
        Requires: xorg-driver-video-nvidia = 1:180.29-1 at 2.6.25usPAE

~:  rpm -q xorg-driver-video-nvidia

xorg driver mustn't be versioned with kernel's release as it's always
the same binary. So this was a breackage.
