Wrong.  It then says "I can't confirm that. Changing the driver in
xorg.conf from 'nvidia' to 'nv' wasn't enough for me, the freezing
persisted. But after completely removing the nvidia binary driver from
my system (running the installer with the '--uninstall' option), plasma
seems to be stable with the nv driver."

It then goes on to state that the NVidia driver installs custom
libraries, overriding the default Fedora ones, even when the driver
isn't selected.
