Sure, if you'd rather do software rendering with mesa, just uninstall
the nvidia drivers and reinstall mesa-gl.
The other option is to create an RPM package from the nVidia GL package,
and have it provide the proper dependencies. Axel Thimm does this on
his site, and you can use his RPMs or adapt them to your use.
Note that he also rebuilds new RPMs for each Fedora kernel release.
