    3. I successfully installed with this guide. I ran into a lightdm problem that prevented boot when I next tried to upgrade my kernel, so I’m using the old kernel through grub for now. Don’t know whether that’s related to nvidia driver.

      Error is:
      lightdm[1285]: gkr-pam: unable to locate daemon control file

      Kernel version from
      5.7.17-200.fc32.x86_64
      to
      5.8.4-200.fc32.x86_64

          How are the steps to build the Nvidia installer 399 for kernel 5.8?

          Thanks

    5. Successful kernel and driver upgrade:

      ~ $ nvidia-installer -v |grep version
      nvidia-installer: version 450.66
      ~ $ uname -a
      Linux localhost.localdomain 5.8.7-200.fc32.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Sep 7 15:26:10 UTC 2020 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
      ~ $ lspci |grep -E “VGA|3D”
      01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM204 [GeForce GTX 970] (rev a1)

      Was on a 5.7.x kernel and 440.100 driver. Ran dnf upgrade and installed 5.8.x. Prior to reboot:

      – downloaded 450.66 driver runfile and made it executable
      – mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nvda-440.100.img
      – dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
      – systemctl set-default multi-user.target

      After reboot, ran the 450.66 runfile, then systemctl set-default graphical.target, restart and done. Worked first try this time.
