I'll tell you if it works out.
I don't know about the specifics to Fedora with your Mac, but if you want rid of that Fallback mode, you're probably going to have to install the Nvidia drivers.
Those instructions actually almost set you up for installing the driver. After running those commands you just posted, if you want to install the driver, try running this:
yum -y update kernel* selinux-policy*
After reboot, run these:
rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
yum -y install akmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs
But if you don't want to go to that extreme, try what you posted first.
The bonus of running my recommended command is you might be able to get 3D acceleration working.
I've run Fedora on a Mac before, but I never tried installing the Nvidia drivers on it, so do research first if you're unsure you should try. I believe it would be fine, but I could be wrong.
