I got one of the dell precision workstations and tried to install fedora 21. Went smooth.

Installing the nvidia driver in order to utilize the GPU I always ended up with gnomes sad face.

Unfortunately I did buy it with Windows since the Ubuntu version got just available today in my region.

Does anybody have an idea what specific setup is required to mimic the now shipping ubuntu behaviour?
