Problems with other DE's on Korora


As you may or may not know, Korora is a derivative of Fedora, and most things operate the same way.

I installed Korora 25 GNOME on a secondary HDD on my computer, and it worked for a while. I decided to install Cinnamon as a second DE, and it was fine for a few days. Today I loaded Korora, and nouveau (the unofficial nVidia driver) was disabled, so I re-enabled it, which wasn't too hard, but my Cinnamon DE won't start. I select my user, Enter the password, change the DE from GNOME to Cinnamon, and the screen goes black for a second, then goes back to the GDM log on screen. I also tried it with KDE, same issue.

If anyone has any Idea on how to fix this, it would be greatly appreciated, as I need to use Cinnamon for my YouTube channel, as OBS won't record in GNOME for some reason.
