    Is closed NVidia going to work for F28 beta?

    I installed the F28 Beta on my laptop today that has Intel video and it worked great.
    But I also would like to update my newer skylake Dell laptop but it has a NVidia video card. So with that I'm using F27 + the closed nvidia driver.
    I went and looked in the "28" rpmfusion-nonfree areas and didn't find the kmod-nvidia there. So would that mean doing a system-upgrade with
    dnf to 28 would fail for my NVidia closed driver case?

    for the time being probably. it's strongly adviseable to give the rpmfusion guys some time to prepare F28 packages before upgrading

    I went ahead and installed the beta, the nvidia driver built correctly:
    Code:
    root:~ #  modinfo nvidia
    filename:       /lib/modules/4.16.5-300.fc28.x86_64/extra/nvidia/nvidia.ko
    alias:          char-major-195-*
    version:        390.48
    supported:      external
    license:        NVIDIA
