    2. I’ve used this guide before and it worked great, but recently the breaker popped while on Clear Linux and I had a fedora 31 thumb drive from last year. Well I installed it and it worked everything went over fine. tryed the guide got some erros about sdg3 which was the thumb drive for Fedora…. So I finally reboot into run level 3 after just copy paste the guide and go to install the driver and it novuea was still there despite being disable in modprobe. said with kernel headers in inramfs… so I hit startx and it comes up into desktop…

      Is the signing part is too early in the guide (at 1.3)? The signing command doesn’t run with X server running. I signed the driver at 2.8.1.

      Best

      • Hi kragelj,

        Nice to hear that you got everything working and have to say that you have awesome cards!

        Thanks! Yes you are totally right, you can’t sign kernel modules on step 1.3, but it’s good point to disable Secure boot before you start installation, so maybe I should add note that signing is possible after step 2.8.1.

    8. Hi JR,
      Thanks for spending the time putting together this guide. I found it very useful performing, what I feared would be a harrowing experience.

      Unfortunately I did have one issue.

      $ nvidia-installer -v |grep version
      nvidia-installer: version 440.64

      $ uname -a
      Linux ddpserver2.dpurdie.dyndns.org 5.5.16-200.fc31.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Apr 8 16:43:33 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      $ lspci |grep -E “VGA|3D”
      01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK208B [GeForce GT 710] (rev a1)

      The problem I had was that modprobe could not insert nvidia-drm.
      Manually running the command yielded “Operation not permitted”
      Eventually I selected ‘no’ to the DKMS question and moved onto the next step.
      I did succeed in installed the driver, but I don’t think I have DKMS integration

    10. Does this work with Fedora 32?

      Reply
      • Don’t use this for F32. It will totally pootch your system. I tried it with the beta, and it didn’t go well.

      • You will need to patch the nvidia driver to 5.6-kernel for it to work.

        I have detailed out how to do it in a reply to your comment below.

    13. May need to patch driver 390.132 for kernel 5.6.6. The module build fails for this kernel.

    14. Will there be a patch for the 390.132 driver and kernel 5.6.6?
