I know it is beta, so it is not a suprise if it does not work. But maybe someone has got it working?

I tried it with this:

dnf --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-rawhide --enablerepo=rpmfusion-free-rawhide install akmod-nvidia

But X does not start afterwards anymore.

After patching akmod-nvidia it works fine here (fixed rpm's aren't available from any repo yet) .

and more excuses from the kernel devs


I don't know why they needed CONFIG_DEBUG_VM_PGFLAGS=y in a release kernel seems pretty dumb to me.
