    1. It works with some DKMS issues during installation.

      1) type this –
      ./NVIDIA-Linux*.run –add-this-kernel
      2) run custom build, 440.82 for me –
      NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-440.82-custom.run

    2. Patched driver 340xx not work on fedora32 and error is bad return status
      Kernel 5.6.11-300.fc32

    3. UPDATE for kernel 5.6.11 I guess:

      The DKMS installation failed to build some module. (j8?) before that it did warn about a module make unnecessary. “Bad return status” “bad exit status:2”

      I tried (as per the prompt suggestion) to install it without DKMS. There was another warning about the CC version mismatch (Driver on 10.0.xx kernel on 10.1.xx IIRC) I ignored the warning and installed anyway. All good outputs. Ran nvidia-smi. Smiled at meeting the expectation.
      Really comprehensive guide. Keep up the good work guys!!
      (PS: I hope I am alerted on my mail about any follow up comment/remarks :P )

    4. Nice guide,

      nvidia-installer -v |grep version : version 440.82

      lspci |grep -E “VGA|3D” : 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP106 [GeForce GTX 1060 3GB] (rev a1)

      but since update kernel 5.6.11-300 yesterday, no graphical boot…
      Any idea?

    6. I use the rpmfusion nvidia packages with nvidia GeForce GT 710 hardware.

      I recently upgraded our desktop computers to Fedora 32. Then I came across these instructions. After restoring “splash” to /etc/default/grub, and set plymouth to my favorite (fade-in), I followed your instructions and did “reboot”. The plymouth splash worked the first time on both computers, one of which is dual screen. Thanks for the help.

      Thank you so much for this perfect set of instructions. I have yet to see any freezes the way I was seeing them (about once per day, lost mouse, lost all keys so no ctrl-alt-del, had to use power supply’s reset button) with nouveau driver.

    10. I have a new drive with f32 just installed on it, so I tried using your good guide.
      It looks as if it all worked well:

      nvidia-installer -v | grep version says
      nvidia-installer: version 390.132 ([email protected])

      uname -a says

      lspci | grep VGA says

      —————————
      I did notice that in step 2.6.3, both grub-mkconfig -o commands showed several messages with

      “rmdir: failed to remove ‘/var/lib/os-prober/mount’: Device or resource busy”

      but I ignored those messages. Does that matter?

      Thanks again for your very careful and complete set of instructions.

    11. The patched versions installed without an error. But I see a blank screen on booting into the graphical mode. I am using Macbook Pro Mid 2010 on fresh install(updated) of Fedora 32.

    14. Apparently, after a recent dracut update, we must now surround all items on both sides with whitespace, thus

      add_drivers+=” nvidia nvidia_modeset nvidia_uvm nvidia_drm ”
      install_items+=” /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf ”

      After modifying these, I no longer got warnings.
