I did a fresh install of fedora 27 yesterday, with it now being the only OS on my machine (used to dual boot with windows before). Since I have an nvidia gpu, I used to always have to install the rpm fusion drivers for my second monitor to be recognized and for things to run at the native resolution for f25 and f26.

For f27, I installed the rpm fusion repos and drivers without checking whether they're needed first. After the install and reboot, however, my login screen after boot was already laggy (When I clicked on my user, when entering the password etc). So I uninstalled the drivers again and now I'm running whatever f27 came with.

After all this hassle before on f26 and f25 to install the right drivers, I'm a bit circumspect about why and whether this will come back to haunt me at some point. EDIT: and the screen just froze when I opened Spotify, so I'll definitely have to change something.

Another problem, and I think it might be related, is this: After boot, my keyboard doesn't get recognized by the OS immediately (although the keys light up and it worked perfectly during installation and both f25 and f26). I have to unplug it, wait for a few seconds and plug it back in. Maybe it's just a coincidence, but that didn't happen with the rpm fusion drivers. Additionally, I'm using a special keyboard layout (neo 2) and f27 is the first fedora to not recognize the super key correctly. I've always mapped "open nautilus with home folder" to super + e, but I can't input that in neo in the dialog to change the keyboard shortcut. I can in qwertz / qwerty, then change back to neo and it works. When I reboot, I have to remap again for it to work. The super key itself works in neo, however - it behaves like the super key should.

Maybe these issues have nothing to do with each other, I don't know enough to say, but the coincidence seemed odd to me at the very least. If they're not interrelated, I'm happy to split the question up into 2-3 pieces.

I saw certain folks report different issues with the nvidia drivers from rpmfusion but, I asked if anyone else was having issues in IRC and everyone said they are fine. What I did for the moment was run sudo and send the logs to nvidia
