Hello , 
Can you take a look on this patch: https://github.com/rpmfusion/Virtual

Not using this patch makes VirtualBox-guest-additions provides 

"both EGL and GL are replaced, the name of the path name doesn't count,
only the internal soname count (readelf -a /usr/lib64/VBoxEGL.so |grep
"for now we can't provide this package, you will need to filter theses
dependencies and make sure they will confict with other libgl providers
(such as nvidia) "

So I made this patch , any feedback is welcome
