better, the nvidia driver decreased my CPU load tremendously in the
application that I was working with. From 90% (barely useable) to 30%
Now I just need to figure out what is going on with my boot setup.
Thanks for all the help!
In the past it has seemed to me that switching between the nouveau and
rpmfusion nvidia drivers was easy, provided that the wanted driver was
the one installed most recently. Otherwise you may get blacklist
troubles. Just a thought.
