    1. Hi JR,
      Did the following
      1. Verify nvidia card is supported
      01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G72 [GeForce 7300 LE] (rev a1)
      2. downloaded the associated nvidia driver
      3. followed the instructions and got the following error when running the nvidia installer:
      make -C /usr/src/kernels/5.13.13-200.fc34.x86_64/tools/build CFLAGS= LDFLAGS= /usr/src/kernels/5.13.13-200.fc34.x86_64/tools/objtool/fixdep
      make -C /usr/src/kernels/5.13.13-200.fc34.x86_64/tools/lib/subcmd/ OUTPUT=/usr/src/kernels/5.13.13-200.fc34.x86_64/tools/objtool/
      make -C /usr/src/kernels/5.13.13-200.fc34.x86_64/tools/build CFLAGS= LDFLAGS= /usr/src/kernels/5.13.13-200.fc34.x86_64/tools/objtool/fixdep
      make[4]: *** [Makefile:55: /usr/src/kernels/5.13.13-200.fc34.x86_64/tools/objtool/objtool-in.o] Error 1
      make[3]: *** [Makefile:69: objtool] Error 2
      make[2]: *** [Makefile:1990: tools/objtool] Error 2
      NVIDIA: left KBUILD.
      nvidia.ko failed to build!
      make[1]: *** [Makefile:261: module] Error 1
      make: *** [makefile:59: module] Error 2

      5. I am running : Linux fedora 5.13.13-200.fc34.x86_64

      Any suggestions on what went wrong??

      • Hello Herb,

        Unfortunately NVIDIA 304.xx is not supported anymore with latest 5.13 kernels.

    2. Thank you very much! Worked like a charm:

      $ nvidia-installer -v |grep version
      nvidia-installer: version 470.63.01

      $ uname -a
      Linux fedora 5.13.13-200.fc34.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Aug 26 17:06:39 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      $ lspci |grep -E “VGA|3D”
      01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM206 [GeForce GTX 950] (rev a1)

    3. Hi there,

      after the installation only my external monitor is working. The laptop monitor does not show anything. How to enable dual monitor?

      • Hi,

        Actually this is how to NVIDIA drivers works with NVIDIA Optimus laptops. If you check step 1.2 you can see link to https://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/470.63.01/README/optimus.html

        “The driver may be installed normally on Optimus systems, but the NVIDIA X driver and the NVIDIA OpenGL driver may not be able to display to the laptop’s internal display panel unless a means to connect the panel to the NVIDIA GPU (for example, a hardware multiplexer, or “mux”, often controllable by a BIOS setting) is available. On systems without a mux, the NVIDIA GPU can still be useful for offscreen rendering, PRIME render offload, running CUDA applications, and other uses that don’t require driving a display.”

        Next thing to do is check your BIOS / UEFI. Is it possible to disable integrated graphics / NVIDIA Optimus?

    4. Worked like a charm. Thank you very much!
