I have Fedora 21 on a computer that I built with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti graphics card. When I was originally installing my system, I had a large number of issues with getting it running until I installed the
kmod-nvidia package from RPMFusion. Since then, my experience in the operating system itself has been fine and smooth.
However, at the kernel selection screen and bootup process, I can tell that it is using the basic graphics drivers, as when it prompts me for the decryption passphrase, it uses a basic text interface (as compared to the normal text box that appears with the
plymouth theme). Additionally, after entering my decryption phrase, it also loads up with the bar instead of the Fedora balloon.
This obviously isn't a major issue, but it is something that has had me curious for a while as I know my system has the capable drivers, but I just don't know how to get them loaded that early in the system.
When I was originally diagnosing and fixing my system, I followed this guide from if-not-true-then-false.
Any help is appreciated!
