    1. Hi great guide! i’ve been using this for years now as my go to reference for nvidia drivers on fedora.

      Following kernel update on Fedora34 to 5.13.4-200 I had failure when installing 390.143.
      Updated driver from nvidia 390.144 installs fine.

      Hope that’s useful to someone!

      • Thanks Steve, just updated all guides!

    2. Has anyone been able to use the real-time kernel with Nvidia (dkms
      fails on kernel-rt-*)?

      So to accurately record Midi input, for example, have been using a
      laptop with an Intel graphics driver.

    3. New computer – using Linux since 1999, began with Red Hat Linux 5.2, walked along through Fedora Core, then Fedora – installed Fedora 34.

      Installing the NVIDIA drivers was a piece of cake thanks to your detailed instructions and it worked right away.

      $ nvidia-installer -v | grep version
      nvidia-installer: version 460.84

      $ uname -a
      Linux ryzen9 5.12.15-300.fc34.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Jul 7 19:46:50 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      $ lspci | grep -E ‘VGA|3D’
      0a:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation TU116 [GeForce GTX 1660] (rev a1)

    4. nvidia-settings version 470.52 is still not be able to start on wayland.
      ERROR: Unable to find display on any available system

    5. Unfortunately I am getting a blank screen on when gdm tries to start

      • Never mind, just had to disable my integrated graphics in the firmware configuration.

    6. Hello!
      I am a Linux newby and very thankful for your guides that always help me. But now I have encountered a strange problem with NVIDIA drivers, maybe you can help me.
      A week ago I installed Fedora 34 alongside Windows10. For NVIDIA installation I used this guide and everything went perfectly. During the week I set up a nice usable system for myself and then I decided to ban windows completely and only use it as a guest system in the virtual machine. So I prepared all ssds and reinstalled fedora, but the installation of NVIDIA drivers no longer works properly. Now I have problems with dkms. I get this error:

      Failed to run ‘/usr/sbin/dkms build -m nvidia -v 470.57.02 -k 5.13.5-200.fc34.x86_64’: Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel. Skipping…
      Failed to install the kernel module through DKMS.

      And here is the error from the file /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/…/make.log:

      make[1]: Entering directory ‘/usr/src/kernels/5.13.5-200.fc34.x86_64’.
      Compiler version check failed:
      The major and minor number of the compiler used to compile the kernel:
      gcc (GCC) 11.1.1 20210531 (Red Hat 11.1.1-3), GNU ld version 2.35.1-41.fc34 does not match the compiler used here:
      cc (GCC) 11.2.1 20210728 (Red Hat 11.2.1-1)
      ***Failed CC version check. Bailing out! ***

      And i dont know how to deal with this :(
      Now I have installed drivers without dkms. But I don’t know what disadvantages it has. Need advice. Hopefully you can help me.

    8. Hi,

      just wondering if anybody is experiencing a problem similar to the one I have. I have a hunch it might be hardware related, but I’m still struggling to understand exactly what is going on.

      Some history: Dell 7510, been using it since Fedora 28, sometimes used akmod-nvidia, sometimes manual installed drivers. Worked with different levels of hackiness (but always worked) til F33 and 465.xx(? I think)

      Anyway, now I’m trying to get F34 and 470.42 working, which should be a working combination, but I only arrive at black screens.

      Nvidia Quadro M2000M, kernel 5.13.7, sddm

      Is there something I’m missing? Should I be saving myself the trouble and getting a Radeon to replace this card? ),:


      • Michael, I’ve identical behaviour to you,
        execpt: M1000M nvidia card (on Dell 7510), 470.63.01 driver, 5.13.13-200 kernel, booting runlevel 3, then starting X with “startx” (i.e. no display manager), using KDE (not gnome)

        I get a blank screen from which there’s no return. Must reboot. I have no clue how to solve this. Clues anyone??

        • Hello Sherman,

          I maybe reply to you on Youtube aleready?

          • Yes JR, you did!

            I use a different name on youtube. Good eye!

            I didn’t have another laptop to fulfill your request but now I do. My wife’s laptop (a Lenovo W530 with a Quadro K2000M video card) has been dead for awhile, the disk having died. I just took the disk from the Dell Precision which gets the blank screen, and booted the Lenovo off of it.

            Nothing has changed on that disk since I wrote you on youtube. Amazingly, the Lenovo booted, and startx boots X (no black screen). So it seems that there is a strange interplay between the nvidia driver and the M1000M (or M2000M in Michael’s case) which is giving the blank screen. Once I clone the disk so I can boot both machines and get ssh running on the two laptops I’ll run the commands you suggested on the Dell and send results to you on the youtube chat. My linux skills are VERY rusty so everything goes slowly for me. Thanks for your help.

    9. How do you generate Initramfs? I checked the Dracut directory but I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO PROCEED SAFELY. Any additional comment would help….

      • Check step. 2.6.5 Generate initramfs.

    10. Hi, works great with fedora workstation 34, the only thing is that when it comes updates it lost again, so is needed to run dracut -f manually, is there a way to automate this? like a post script or something?

      • Hi Ronald,

        Do you have this problem with kernel update or NVIDIA update? Basically kernel updates should work without dracut -f and NVIDIA driver updates too.

    11. It is nearly impossible for me to install a Linux on dual graphics laptop and use it with multiple monitor. I had tried Pop!_OS it worked out of the box and I was able to use multiple monitor yet the problem is it uses X11 instead of wayland it caused Screen-tearing, when I changed it to Wayland instead then the Pop_OS’ Graphics switcher does not work with Wayland.

      It nightmares to have dual graphics laptop with Linux installed and uses multiple monitor with Wayland enable on top of Nvidia proprietary driver

      • Yes, you are totally right. Dual graphics laptops with Linux+NVIDIA drivers are not good combo. Almost best option is nouveau, if NVIDIA and X11 cause problems.

        Unfortunately this is something what Linux communities can’t fix, only NVIDIA can fix these problems, but it’s going in a better direction.

    12. Install instructions worked perfectly. Kind regards and high thanks from aconno GmBH.

    13. Didnt work for me. Had to reinstall the OS after the trial. Tried twice.

      • You didn’t tell what happened. Why it didn’t work, did you get any error messages?

        Btw. Linux OS re-installation is never really necessary, you can always reverse steps and restore it original state without reinstall.

      • Thanks for posting this Rob, I don’t currently have any NVIDIA Optimus devices so it’s very to hear that it works with Optimus devices too.

    14. Hi JR,
      I followed your instructions which are very good! When I get to the point to run the installer, NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.108-patched-kernel-5.11.run, it fails with:
      -> done.
      -> Driver file installation is complete.
      -> Installing DKMS kernel module:
      -> done.
      ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module.

      Any help is appreciated. Thanks
