Hello

Looking for help to install drivers at all, i had found and adapted Leighs guide at fedoraforum into a script i named post_nvidia.

Anyway, so i installed the latest kernel of f20, 3.13 or 3.14, and rebooted.

Afterwards, i've installed "akmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs" and rebooted.

Didnt work, so i've rebuilt dracut:

mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nouveau.img
dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

And... rebooted... Still stuck after plymouth befor login shows up...

However, this is the error log i could get on init 3, before i had removed the drivers and rebooted.

Well, since it didnt work with F20, i tried with F21, but with the same results...

I wouldnt bother with this, as i dont want to play games, but since HD movies lag massivly its not an option to skip.

I had bought this laptop (german) to watch HD movies, and to play on Windows, using the GeForce 745m.

Any advices, hints or ideas? I dont have much experience with graphics.

Below you will find the debug-nvidia.log and post_nvidia script.

Thank you in advance

Did you only install akmod? If so, also add kmod-nvidia you might just be stuck while the akmod is compiling.

i have a feeling you messed up the nvidia driver installation. Bumblebee gives you a seperate set of drivers, for the optimus thing to work. You probably should uninstall the installed nvidia drivers and follow this guide -> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bumblebee

Yes, you should install and use bumblebee. Have you followed its installation guide thoroughly?

Finally, since your main graphics card will be the Intel one (rather than NVidia), your xorg configuration should not try to use NVidia drivers. Try these commands and reboot, it might solve your problem:

mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.orig
mkdir /etc/X11/nvidia-backup && mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/*nvidia*  /etc/X11/nvidia-backup
