Nvidia Driver for Fedora on Dell xps

as per last post, On Dell Studio XPS 13
kmod-nvidia was making small problem
to hibernate and other issue,
searching for solution. Need to

download latest Nvidia Driver

I installed "NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.51-pkg2.run"
packages and it helped to fix me the problem.
it need to install without running X server.
Alt +F1 (or F2/F3) is not only working.
'init 3' also not working. need to remove
/tmp/.Xorg* files and then only driver started.
It required kernel libraries and then
complete automatically for it.

'init 5' command started new interface
and it looks good than 'kmod-nvidia'
driver somehow. Following problem fixed

1) Hibernate working fine

2) Sensor for GPU is working fine
(4th with Red strip is Nvidia - 62C is too much)
3) Display seems Good to eye then pervious

4) System->Preference-> 'Nvidia X Server Setting'
(it has various setting for X Server)
