    xorg-x11-drv-nouveau is supplied by fedora, but I was told that the
    kernel driver was more up to date, so I removed the fformer.

I have a late 2012 iMac with Nvidia that was using 470xx.  I mostly use nouveau
with wayland, but do have xorg-x11-drv-nouveau.

There were issues with 470xx failing to build in F40 with the akmods install from rpmfusion, but now there is a testing version that does install.  Some users have success with the Nvidia installer. I have the rpmfusion-testing package installed
but haven't had time to test it.  I don't think it supports Wayland.

Thanks for your comment.  I posted later, in this thread but with a subject-line change. It does show in HyperKitty and I've put a link to it on the rpmfusion list.

I have just updated that, re the dual-boot box.  See below:

I have removed all nouveau packages and installed all *470xx" packages, which installed the new versions.  That gave HDMI and vga screens with their expected resolutions but essentially no user interactivity because active kwin_wayland runs all cpus at full throttle. Perhaps that's 'not supported'.

Ctrl/Alt/F3 still works, and I have 6.8.9 now.  That complained that there was "no space on /boot/efi/EFI/Linux/Fedora " (200 MB) but seems to run (with the same cpu runaway) after I deleted several f39 files.

I hope this doesn't offend any 'religious' beliefs.  Installing


(in the updates repo but NOT supported by the Fedora KDE SIG)

and selecting "Desktop Session: Plasma (X11)" in the login screen, has apparently restored this system to a usable state. At present password entry still has a sluggish keyboard.

The single-boot box is still running nouveau.
