nvidia-driver-cuda-libs dependency

Hello all,

I've had Fedora since it's 4th version (Fedora Core 4) and I've been running it without re-installing at all since version 17, just upgrading from console. I've always have had Nvidia GPU not for a particular reason; but the last one I had, stopped working(it was too old). So I decided to use the Intel integrated graphic card. What happened was that once the kernel updated a couple of times, eventually I got a black screen. Then I booted on level 3 and removed all nvidia drivers. At this point I had software that needed to be removed because of dependency on these drivers; more specific: VLC, Kodi, KDEnlive and ffmpeg. So I did, thinking about installing them back once I had working video drivers. After reboot everything looked just fine. The problem is now to install any of the software I removed. It is asking for nvidia-driver-cuda-libs as dependency. I searched for CUDA and it is supposed to work only with Nvidia GPUs. At this point I'm confused. Should I install it or not?Those softwares are not intended to work only with Nvidia GPUs; why is it asking for these dependency?

Re: nvidia-driver-cuda-libs dependency

You haven't tell us what GPU you have there to determine if its older than the 1st CUDA equip GPU or not...

Yes there are very old GPUs that don't have CUDA so installing deps or not is only matter for what the software needs to work

The first one was nvidia gforce 7300. Now I'm using the integrated Intel graphics. MB chipset B85. Processor i5 4590S. The INTEL SPECS for this chip list the HD 4600 IGPU.
