I've installed clean Fedora 23 (64-bit) with all updates and did steps for installing Nvidia closed source driver from http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bumblebee

Tried drivers 352.63 and 352.55

After reboot I can't use browser, terminal etc. Just loading and that's all. My card is GeForce GT 540M

Kernel 4.2.6-300. Downgrade to Xorg 1.17 also didn't help.

Could you please confirm if you're able to login into your session then it's stays stuck loading ?

Could you have a look at the journal and paste any specific error message on the session that could help ?

$ sudo journalctl

Good luck!

Hi xmetax Were you able to follow this guide (if-not-true-then-false), and didn't need to install bumblebee project ? Does your nvidia card has optimus technology ? Thanks.
