    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.

      • Hi TheSami,

        Have to say that you probably did something wrong, because I have used this method since Fedora 20 and still no problems.

    12. Hello, I’m triying to use this solution, but when you open the Note 390.138 users: 390.138 on Fedora 32/31/30 with Kernel 5.8 needs a patched version (Download NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.138 + Kernel 5.8+ patched version), inside says it only works from kernel 4.1 to 4.3:
      This is example how to patch nVidia 304.134 drivers with latest kernels, like 4.12/4.11/4.10/4.9/4.8/4.7/4.6/4.5/4.4/4.3. You can create any directory and run following commands under it.

      I don’t get how it works, I’m getting message error, can you help me please?

      • Hi Francisco,

        You could download patched version from FAQ page. Use wget on command line or copy link directly to your browser.

    13. Thanks for this. Installing the nvidia driver is *just* delicate enough that missing one step is a disaster. PPPPPP applies. (Proper Preparation Prevents Piss Poor Performance )
      As requested:

    14. After install of the patched 340.108 driver, on Fedora 32, attempting to play a video resulted in:

      /usr/lib64/libOpenCL.so.1: no version information available (required by /usr/lib64/libavutil.so.56)

      I re-installed the OpenCl package. In Fedora this was
      dnf reinstall ocl-icd

      and I installed the devel
      dnf install ocl-icd-devel

      I also ran:
      mkdir -p /etc/OpenCL/vendors && echo “libnvidia-opencl.so.1” > /etc/OpenCL/vendors/nvidia.icd

      Working fine now.
