I build the kmods for the kernel that were shipped with the beta. If you 
follow rawhide then you might want to install the akmod-packages (e.g. 
akmod-nvidia); then the akmods scripts will automatically build new kmod 
packages when you install a new kernel-install (or during boot); that's 
similar to how dkms does it.

The plan is to rebuild all kmods in RPM Fusion for the latest rawhide 
kernel automatically once a week (likely on each Sunday) to make sure 
they still compile (and for users with slow netbooks, where you don't 
want to compile modules); but I haven't got around to set that up yet,
