    1. Anyone with pached 340.108 for 5.6* kernel?

    2. Hello all!

      I just updated this guide and tested all drivers with Fedora 32.

      New patched drivers are available too, should work normally with kernel 5.6+, dkms and Gnome 3.36.1.

      Please let me know if you still have problems?

    3. Patched 390.132 on Fedora 31 with Kernel 5.6 works! Thanks so much!

    4. how can i patch my 440.59 nvidia for work on kernel 5.6?

    5. How can i patch my 440.59 nvidia driver for work on kernel 5.6?

      • Hi Maksym,

        Any reason why you want patch 440.59 nvidia driver for 5.6 kernel? You can use 440.82 and it works out of the box.

    6. Successfully installed and working great, thanks!
      Hard: Thinkpad T410 with NVIDIA 218M
      OS: Fedora 32 Workstation x86_64 (upgraded today from F31)
      Kernel: 5.6.7-300
      Driver: Nvidia-340.108

      But Plymouth doesn’t work after page 2 tutorial. It seems dracut don’t find nvidia_modeset:

      #dracut -f
      dracut-install: Failed to find module ‘nvidia_modeset’
      dracut: FAILED: /usr/lib/dracut/dracut-install -D /var/tmp/dracut.yLU746/initramfs –kerneldir /lib/modules/5.6.7-300.fc32.x86_64/ -m nvidia nvidia_modeset nvidia_uvm nvidia_drm

      • Hi Tiago,

        Thanks. This might be nvidia 340.108 problem, but I check this soon.

    7. Hi,
      IMHO, you must correct all the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-304.135, with NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.108

      This because we dowload the 340.108 and not 304.135 …

      • Hi FS,

        Actually this is just old example howto patch drivers. I could be updated to nvidia 340.xx or 390.xx too. I have patched nvidia 340xx and 390xx and should work currently with 5.6 kernels.

    8. TYVM

      4.1 Create /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf file

      Create /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf with content “options nvidia_drm modeset=1”

      echo “options nvidia_drm modeset=1″ >> /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf

      4.2 Create /etc/dracut.conf.d/nvidia.conf file

      Create /etc/dracut.conf.d/nvidia.conf file with following content:

      add_drivers+=”nvidia nvidia_modeset nvidia_uvm nvidia_drm”


      Works in Fedora with rpmfusion nvidiadrivers too (F29/30/21/32)

      • Excellent! Nice to hear. I haven’t used rpmfusion nvidia drivers since Fedora 20, but they do nice work too.

    11. Any guess to why do I get “An error ocurred while performing the step: “building kernel modules”..”?
      I’m trying to install 440.64 on a recently upgraded F32 from F31 with kernel 5.6.8-300

      I have a GT710 and had installed the driver on a previous kernel

      • Hi Fabro,

        Try latest nVidia 440.82 instead, should work with latest 5.6.8 kernel.

        • Thank you very much! That did solve the problem I was having!

          Have a nice one

    12. It worked great for me. Running Fedora 32, Intel Core i7-6700K and two GeForce GTX 980 in sli. Thank you so much for posting this guide, I am so grateful.

      • Hi Freddy!

        Excellent nice to hear that you got everything working!

    13. Nvidia x server settings didn’t get installed and brightness is always always reset on boot up to about 60% , any idea ?
      Fedora 32 , Gnome DE and 5.6.12 kernel.
