dnf install lxdm
systemctl disable gdm.service
systemctl enable lxdm.service

at least that will give you a clean login screen.

EDIT: also the proper way to disable nouveau, and get the nvidia drivers working is:
1. make sure you have the nvidia drivers installed (say from rpmfusion, or proprietary)
2. edit /etc/default/grub
and make sure you have this:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rhgb quiet nouveau.modeset=0 rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau"
then execute: grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub

Once you reboot, if you chose the akmod / dkms way for the modules, you will notice that the login screen takes a while to load, that's cuz the system is compiling the kmod. Don't worry , this will only happen once in a blue moon.

In other words, you successfully blacklisted Nouveau with this option in kernel command line: nouveau.modeset=0. I also do not see your proprietary Nvidia driver, it does not show anywhere. And this is #1 Mystery here. Why?

I see that the only HW working, and giving to you full HD: 1920x1080 is nothing more than INTEL Integrated GFX Driver on INTEL Integrated GFX HW, which MUST have by design Kernel ModeSetting (KMS):

Quote:
The Intel kernel module should load fine automatically on system boot.

If it does not happen, then: Make sure you do not have nomodeset or vga= as a kernel parameter, since Intel requires kernel mode-setting.

Also, check that you have not disabled Intel by using any modprobe blacklisting within /etc/modprobe.d/ or /usr/lib/modprobe.d/.

Enable early KMS

Kernel mode setting (KMS) is supported by Intel chipsets that use the i915 DRM driver and is mandatory and enabled by default.

Refer to Kernel mode setting#Early KMS start for instructions on how to enable KMS as soon as possible at the boot process.
The #2 Mystery here is how blacklisted Nouveau, reinstalled, enabled full HD, since in your latest log I do not see any trace of Nouveau (which is very correct, should not be there, anyway)???

It should work as full HD (1920x1080) even if you de-install both Nvidia proprietary and Nouveau (in other words, ONLY INTEL Integrated GFX HW will be used, as, my best guess, is solely used now)?!

Re: F25: nVidia M2000M kmod driver

Yes, I don't get it either. But using "ps -ef" I previously noticed that the nvidia driver was fully loaded.

The "nouveau.modeset=0" part I found in a Ubuntu forum post. Without this, I only get 800x600. Don't ask me why.

And I have the another problem: after several kernel updates, I get this:

$ dkms status
$

So the nvidia driver is no longer installed. I did try to install the driver again and got the same install ***** again. Result:

$ dkms status
nvidia, 375.26: added

And I can't run the OpenGL dependent software anymore. Has something changed with the latest kernels? When the 4.9 kernels were there, all worked. Now with the 4.10 kernels, no longer.

hvn

Re: F25: nVidia M2000M kmod driver

OK, after some waiting, nVidia released the 375.66 driver for the 4.10 kernel which installed great.

Then, wondering about the nouveau stuff, I find a post that all you need is "i915.nomodeset", so insert "i915." to nomodeset which is in grub already and it works. No need for "nouveau.modeset=0".

However, despite:

dkms status
nvidia, 375.66, 4.10.13-200.fc25.x86_64, x86_64: installed

I still find that both FreeCAD and Blender don't work because of OpenGL which is strange because both worked fine on 375.26 and 4.8 kernel and according to the 375.66 releasenotes OpenGL is supported. I have installed:

Installed Packages
mesa-libGL.i686 17.0.5-2.fc25 @updates
mesa-libGL.x86_64 17.0.5-2.fc25 @updates

Installed Packages
mesa-dri-drivers.i686 17.0.5-2.fc25 @updates
mesa-dri-drivers.x86_64 17.0.5-2.fc25 @updates

So what do I miss or do I do wrong, if anything?
