[PlanetCCRMA] CCRMA Video Issue

I attempted to install the CCRMA akmod package. With the RPMFusion repository active, I could not see the ccrma-testing version. So, I disabled RPMFusion. Then I was able to see the ccrma-testing version, and tried to install. I got the following error:

Hmmm, as far as I can remember both will point to the correct 
architecture (as the architecture is not hardwired in the .repo files, 
it comes from yum itself.
