I'm new to fedora. As Fedora seems to update to the latest version of the kernel, is this a problem if I use the nvidia private drivers?

Thank you.

automated, and private, running 384.69 and dkms to update when kernels are upgraded. if you need details, there are several of my posts that explain all the steps to setup FULLY automated kernel updates with nvidia and dkms.

Welcome to ask.fedora! That's an excellent question that's been asked and answered here many, many times. If you download and install the drivers from the nVidia site, you'll have to boot into a CLI environment to install them, then reboot again to use them. And, every time there's a new kernel installed, you'll have to do it again.

Or, if you prefer to do things the easy, automated way, you can simply enable rpmfusion, install the appropriate drivers from there and have them update themselves when you install a new kernel.
