No GUI after update Fedora 20 and NVidia Card
 
I have tried to install NVidia Drivers and instead of going to Fedora Forums I looked on Google. Now I can only get a command window form a black screen by ctrl+alt+f2.

**Solved**
 
I ran a yum remove *nvidia* and it apparently did the trick. I can now open the GUI without any issues.

but now you are running on the default nv drivers that offer zero 3D or OpenGL support.

???
you replaced the default gtk3 with some other version of 3
you uninstalled gtk2 ( that should have taken most of the Gnome GUI with it )
you blacklisted Nouveau
you tried to install kmod-nvidia
then removed everything nvidia including the nvidia part of xorg ( provided by xorg and NOT nvidia)

there is a very serious glib warning / error


I would REINSTALL fedora 20
then fallow the fedoraforum GUIDE for installing the nvidia driver

Thank you very much for this information. I will now be re-installing my OS.
