    1. Thank you very much for this awesome guide!
      Worked like a charm for me. Here is my output:

    2. These instructions, except for DKMS, worked for me up through most of Fedora 30. DKMS stopped working for me several releases before that so I had been manually rerunning the NVIDIA installer whenever there was a Fedora update. Then this stopped working with Fedora 30 and 31. Specifically, I get the message “An error occurred while performing the step: “Building kernel modules”.

    3. This guide was a welcome clear guide to installing the NVidia drivers on new Fedora 31. I had to get newer GeForce GTX 1650 to solve issue with digital ATEN CS1944DP KVM that could not handle the Fedora 31 Nouveau drivers on older NVS 310 card OR the new 1650 card. Outstanding clear step by step guide.

      Here is info requested after successful install:

    9. MAKE SURE TO DISABLE SECURE BOOT IN YOUR BIOS!!!

      On Fedora 31, if during boot you get “Nvidia kernel module missing. Falling back to nouveau” it’s probably because you failed to disable secure boot.

      Otherwise, you didn’t ensure that akmod compiled the module. Check
      modinfo -F version nvidia
      and make sure it is the right version for your module
      If not, dnf reinstall akmod-nvidia and wait five minutes then run the modinfo command again

    10. Also you can use sudo telinit 3 to drop to runlevel 3 (but shouldn’t have to do this if using akmod-nvidia)
