Hey guys! I have a Laptop Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E540. I'm using fedora 21 as an OS and I'm having trouble installing the Nvidia GT 740M driver. OK I must say that last time I and up installing IT and even worked well, if only the xorg would have started :). I've tried most of he tutorials there on the internet. Every time something else goes wrong.

The thing that goes wrong are basically the same after the installation the OS doesn't starts, and last time started but xorg was crashed every time, I've tried reconfiguring it and so, i end up uninstalling the nvidia driver and everything started to work fine, almost because the kernel did not see a lot of my other drivers so i end up reinstalling fedora! I will post all my System configuration here, maybe some of you had the same problem i wold love to hear how did you managed it.

And my question are: How should i proceed in installing the NVIDIA GT 740m and if you installed it how did you do it? Don't forget it's an laptop and has both NVIDIA and Intel HD 4600 so most likly i will need to install bumblebee to!
