    1. Thanks a lot for a great guide!!! It took me around 1h:30min to finish it without previous knowledge.
      Here are the outputs of the commands you asked for.

      If you are using laptop connected to monitor, before you go to system LVL 3, it is smart to turn off monitor and just use laptop built-in display. I got a bit confused during this part, but once I turned off the monitor, restarted the laptop and used only a built-in display everything worked perfectly.

      • Hello Nash,

        Nice to hear that you got everything working! And excellent tip to turn off external monitor when booting runlevel 3.

    2. Whenever I try booting right now I get two errors for a Nvidia kernel module missing and then it stops at Failed to start Light Display Manager [Nvidia Geforce 560ti, driver version 390.138]

      • Hello Phalen,

        Do you have secure boot enabled on BIOS/UEFI? Did you have problems when you run NVIDIA installer?

    3. Hi All.

      If you need it (like I did), I patched the 340.108 drivers to compile on the 5.10 kernel.

      Download the package I built for my needs here:


      You can also download the .patch file there, if you want to do it yourself.

      Good lock! Have fun! :)



    4. I cannot see none of the plymouth theme.
      Before the login screen I only see tree square, initially gray, and after the became all orange.

      • Hi Michele,

        Do you have working installation? I mean NVIDIA Drivers works normally?

    5. Success. Thank you.

    6. Thanks for the guide, rpmfusion drivers broke my system :D Playing videos in Firefox slowed down the whole system with alot of framedrops and choppy playback. Removed them, installed nvidia driver following your guide, rebooted, smooth as f*ck :)

      • Hello dan,

        You’re welcome, nice to hear that you got NVIDIA drivers installed and running smoothly!

    7. Just for information purposes, the nvidia driver 390.141 released on Thursday the 7th seems to work just fine without patching on 5.9 kernels

      • Thanks Bob,

        I missed this release totally. Works with kernel 5.10.4 too without patching! I update this guide and remove 390xx from NVIDIA patcher script (until 390.141 works)!

    8. Dear JR, Many thanks. The new 390.141 driver (no patch!) worked like a charm for the new 5.10.6 kernel and everything is up to speed.
      You are my life saver.

    9. I tried with gt 530 and the 390. It didnt work at first. Something about a make config.
      I did make oldconfig in the kernel source folder and it worked after that.

      Never using nvidia again

    10. Hi JR,

      Thank you very much for this. I had fedora version 5.8.18-300.fc33.x86_64 with the Nvidia version 340.108 for the GT215M [GeForce GTS 360M]. This is working!

      When I updated Fedora to the versions 5.9.10 and 5.9.11, I could not boot Linux anymore. Luckily I had kept version 5.8.18 so I could still work on my laptop, but now I can use version 5.9.11

      But Thanks again!

    11. I would have never figured all this out alone. You’re a bloody genius. Thank God you published this guide. Brilliant!

    12. I have a fresh Fedora Workstation 33 install I just did on my laptop. It has a GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile card.

      [[email protected] ~]$ lspci | grep -E “VGA|3D”

      01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation TU106M [GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile] (rev a1)

      I followed the guide, installing the 460 driver. After switching back to Runlevel 5 and rebooting, Fedora won’t start. I see the boot screen with the spinner, but I never get a graphical login screen. The spinner just stops spinning and disappears, but it still just displays the booting screen. I’m able to boot into graphical mode in the kernel which was installed when I installed Fedora, but not in the most recent kernel which was placed on the system when I ran “dnf upgrade” after installing Fedora.

      • Hello CS,

        Do you mean that you have fully working desktop with NVIDIA drivers when you use older kernel?

        You can always boot again to runlevel 3 using newest kernel and reinstall 460 drivers. Do you get any errors when you run installer?

        Real problem might be your laptop panel + NVIDIA Optimus technology. Check this for more info: http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/460.32.03/README/optimus.html

        NVIDIA Drivers installs and works, but you can’t use your laptop panel. One possible solution is check BIOS/UEFI and try to disable integrated graphics or disable NVIDIA Optimus technology.

    13. I have NVIDIA Sever Setting no How do I install … ???

    14. Merci beaucoup!

      Is-it possible to do update (dnf update) without problem??
      Merci encore

      • Hello cat,

        Yes you can use dnf update without probelems. DKMS should rebuild your NVIDIA kernel modules when you update kernel.

    15. This is the single most useful page on the internet, it is informative, accurate, it works and is regularly updated. I have used this page for a long time now. Thanks
