nvidia doesn't work for me

I have installed so many times between alpha, beta, and now final. Can never get nvidia to work. It boots and I see the nvidia logo, and gnome shell loads, but it is PAINFULLY slow. Someone else on IRC was having the same problem... no solution. I filed a bug with Red Hat and they said they don't package the driver so they don't support it. Whatever... thats garbage. I can't believe it shipped in the state it is in.

I really wanted to like Fedora but with no nvidia drivers its not worth my time. I guess I'll try Linux Mint now, I know my drivers work fine there.

Try nouveau, it should work better than the nvidia blob.
