As it turns out, that ended up just being a boot from Fedora live CD (or
USB in this case), "mount /dev/sda1 /boot ; grub-install '(hd0)'"
process...  Not a major ordeal.

There were two major(-ish) problems.

1) Somehow there are F11 updates that are newer than F12's release
packages *or* updates.  I'm guessing that will get fixed fairly

2) The NVIDIA binary drivers on rpmfusion.org are (well, were yesterday)
just gone for some reason.  I'm guessing it has something to do with
nvidia + nouveau going boom without a little work.


It could also have something to do with the SELinux issue noted there
too...  I haven't bothered to Google for an answer.  The F11
rpmfusion-nonfree-updates package works fine (if you use akmod-nvidia).
