RPM Fusion Nvidia Drivers for F30

I clean installed F30 when it was posted a few days ago, but I haven't been able to install Nvidia drivers from the RPM Fusion repository via the Software application. Although the drivers appear in Add-ons > Hardware Drivers, attempting to install the drivers results in an error of "Unable to install 'Nvidia Linux Graphics Driver' as not supported" (for what it's worth, I've disabled Wayland).

The graphics card is a GTX 1070 and I've been using Fedora for a couple of years, but I've never had any significant hardware issues in the past (including w/ Nvidia drivers). I've searched for a solution for a couple of days and have checked Fedora Bugzilla, but I can't find any mention of anyone else experiencing this issue. As such, I'm fairly certain this is user error, but I still can't figure it out.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Also It might be the case that although in Fedora 29 one doesnt need to explicitly blacklist nouveau,I found out that in Rawhide the nouveau driver remains active even after the nvidia drivers installation.If this happens to you also on Fedora 30 then maybe you can excplicitly blacklist nouveau in /etc/modprobe.d. Create a file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf and paste in: blacklist nouveau options nouveau modeset=0 Save and update initramfs: dracut --force Then reboot et voila!!!! :)

Thank you very much for the response and potential solution. I'm not on the problematic computer currently, but I'll try your suggestion when I get the chance. Thanks again!
