Have just installed Stella 6.6 in old machine with Nvidia FX-5700 video card with 173xx driver that does not support Xorg versions newer than 1.15. Before doing updates how can I pin or hold my existing installed Xorg version 1.15? And is the Nvidia driver performance advantage worth it over just using the Nouveau driver?

Hello,

You can probably add this to your /etc/yum.conf:

exclude=xorg-x11*

(untested)

Re performance, not sure what to tell you. In all likeliness the proprietary driver likely will have better performance and/or power management.
