    4. First attempt F23->F24 failed. I think it may have been nVidia causing the issues. The upgrade made it all the way to the new grub screen with F24 showing. Plymouth ran ok but never got graphics. Could boot to RL 3 into F24. Tried re-installing nVidia but it failed at the DKMS point and would not complete. Tried it without DKMS and nVidia installer still failed. Question: is it best to go back to nouveau BEFORE attempting the F23->F24 upgrade? Is it possible that I needed to re-install DKMS after the upgrade and before attempting to re-install the nVidia stuff? I think DKMS is standard and installed with the rest of Fedora now. Info: using the 340.96-patched driver; also tried the 340.101-patched to no avail. Older HP Pavillion with GeForce 8600M driver.
