In this config we will install a official Nvidia GeForce driver on Fedora Linux. The system used for this installation is Fedora 21 however, the below config should work for any subsequent Fedora Linux release version. First download the official NVIDIA driver installer from nvidia.com. Your driver version will be different as this depends on your graphic card version eg.:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-346.35.run
Two conditions must be fulfilled before we can start the actual NVIDIA driver installation:
  • nouveau free nvidia driver must be disabled
  • X Server must be disabled
To comply with the both above conditions the below command will disable nouveau nvidia driver:
# dracut --omit-drivers nouveau /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r) --force

Below we will install missing video and audio plugins such us MPEG-4, MP3 on Fedora linux. First enable free and nonfree package repository on your system RPMFusion on your system:
# yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-20.noarch.rpm
# yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-20.noarch.rpm
The above packages are for Fedora 21 Linux so check RPMFusion website to update the above links so they math your Fedora Linux system. Once you have run the above commands you need to update repository index:
# yum update

To create a Fedora Linux Live bootable USB key you will need Fedora Linux ISO image and some sort of USB key with disk size higher than the actual ISO image size. Currently, the size of Fedora 21 Live image is 1.3GB:
# ls -lh /home/lrendek/Downloads/Fedora-Live-Workstation-i686-21-5.iso
-rw-rw-r--. 1 lrendek lrendek 1.3G Dec  4 08:38 Fedora-Live-Workstation-i686-21-5.iso
