I've been playing around with nvidia cards on a number of machines the
last couple of days, and there is a gotcha with the RPM Fusion Nvidia
drivers.

That is, if nouveua is loaded, the nvidia driver won't work.  So, I
would say, dump one or the other.  Either remove kmod-nvidia, or
blacklist nouveau, as shown on this page:

http://fedorasolved.org/video-solutions/nvidia-yum-kmod/
(one caveat about this page)*

If you look at dmesg, and see a bunch of nvidia related errors, try
blacklisting nouveau.


* My caveat about those instructions... I found that I had to make
sure the nouveau driver didn't load with grub, which involves running
dracut after adding rdblacklist=nouveau to grub.conf.  Looking at
things now, some of my problems may be due to misspelling nouveau.
