I would like to install ati catalyst driver which cooperate with kernel up to 3.11. Fedora is currently running kernel 3.15. I would like to avoid installing kernel from the sources and use some prepackaged version (best from some official repo). I'd also like to block fedora from updating kernel beyond version 3.11.

you can get it from koji

but be careful it could compromise ( security fix ) or break your system (compatibility ) to downgrade your kernel

I will answer my own question. There are two yum plugins that are useful here: yum-allowdowngrade and yum-versionlock.
