Can't install nvidia-detect from El Repo -Requires:

Fresh Centos 7 + MATE install and so far have managed to install Nvidia drivers.
Several issues and questions but first am unable to install nvidia-detect after properly installing the El Repo repository.

After a
sudo yum install nvidia-detect
I get (partial output)
Error: Package: nvidia-detect-375.20-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64 (elrepo)
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
Any feedback appreciated!

Apparently you need to enable CR repo. But I still can't install other apps like ffmpeg, vlc, etc without errors

With nvidia, I had better luck by grabbing the installer directly from With multimedia apps, I think you need to enable a repo that ends in .ro. I am not sure about that though.

Yup, you have to add the repo for vlc and other software that yum doesn't know about.

Additional information about the EPEL Repo-
