New Fedora 21 update to Kernel 3.17.7-300.fc21.x86_64 activated nouveau driver again

On my system, I have a NVidia Quadro FX 770 and therefore I'm using
the NVidia driver itself, since rpmfusion does not support my graphic anymore.

But the last update to kernel 3.17.7-300.fc21.x86_64 activated the free
nouveau driver, which sets a kernelmode. But this didn't let me install
the NVidia driver. So I blacklisted the nouveau driver, but it was also in
the initramdisk. So a
dracut --force

built a new one and after a reboot, I could install the NVidia driver again.

Upgrade of Laptop from Fedora 20 to Fedora 21 worked partly ( Nvidia problems )

I updated my Laptop from Fedora 20 to Feodra 21.

The update with fedup worked nice out of the box:

fedup --network 21 --product=workstation

But after rebooting I didn't get X11.

Some time before, I had the nvidia-driver installed, so I started

nvidia-installer --update

which downloaded the latest nvidia driver installed it and after a reboot X11 and the GUI-Login
was back.

When I have more time, I have to look why the rpmfusion akmod drivers do not work for me.

My docker image with mariadb based on Fedora 20 started and could be accessed with mysql client.
