After install nvidia drivers from rpmfusion I get problems with gdm, the screen freezes , CTRL+ALT+Fn n= 1-6 doesn't work , etc. I have to reboot 2 times the pc for a successful boot.
I know about WaylandEnable=false on /etc/gdm/custom.conf

There should be no problem to have both installed. You should even be able to install all of


If you have system-switch-displaymanager-gnome.noarch you can run system-switch-displaymanager to select which one you will use after the next reboot.
