Hi all... As the title says, I had to install Fedora 22 onto my MacBook Pro 13" mid 2010 (7,1) using a live USB and with the nomodeset option, as the default boot would cause the live session to shutdown the computer. Now, I cannot seem to be able to enable or "whitelist" nouveau. I must confess I did this install in hopes to finally be able to install the nvidia blob, but also wanted to test the degree of support from nouveau for this 320m chipset.

Not sure if this is relevant but did you disabled the waylan on gdm, maybe that is causing issues there.

Problem is that noueveau either from installed, updated packages or from the live session, would not allow the computer to boot, as mid-boot it causes runlevel 0 (halt) without power down.
