    2. what is the procedure when upgrading to a new nvidia driver level? I noticed that my previous kernels no longer boot after having upgraded the nvidia driver on my current kernel.
      thanks

    3. After rebooting at the end of step 4.3, I received a notification for an “Unexpected system error”.

      A kernel problem occurred, but your kernel has been tainted (flags:POE). Explanation:
      P – Proprietary module has been loaded.
      O – Out-of-tree module has been loaded.
      E – Unsigned module has been loaded.
      Kernel maintainers are unable to diagnose tainted reports. Tainted modules: nvidia_drm,nvidia_modeset,nvidia.

      The first page worked well, no problems.

      I recently installed Fedora 31, on a Nvidia 2060 Super, and AMD Ryzen 9 computer. Using grub, no dual-boot.

      Let me know if I should paste more info!

    6. Super helpful thanks! I’ve been using this guide for a while across a few Fedora versions.
      Had an issue with DKMS for a few versions (like another post), but all working great on latest versions (30-03-2020) with patched 390.132 installer.

    8. 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

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

      Got great problem with video codecs for h264 , avi … files

      Both mplayer and vlc are not handling anymore any video file.

      I guess I’ll go back to nouveau.

      Anyway thanks for the very good guide.

      • Hi t_pol,

        Unfortunately nVidia 340.108 drivers are really close end of life and that’s why not supported anymore by nVidia. Only way to get everything work is hardware upgrade.

        Reply
      • The same here but I’ve found a solution:
        Uninstall Vlc and then install it from flatpak. It works like a charm.

    11. Hi,

      Your method worked perfect and resolved my problem.
      I struggled many hours yesterday with my new desktop with NVIDIA RTX2080 and finally made a success in installing Linux (Fedora31) in the machine. There were some glitches during the NVIDIA driver installation (Kernel-source location problem) but I found other source to fix that issue and make it work..
