    1. Success:
      Thank you for the detailed write up. I am not sure if the package from rpmfusion is wrong or broken (495.44 vs 495.46), but before finding this guide – I ran into issues where I would just get a black screen right before login on a fresh install of Fedora 35.

      nvidia-installer:
      version 495.46

      uname:

    2. 390.147 is available from NV and I verified it doesn’t need a patch with 5.15 kernels

        • This of course depends on your system. Could you post output of following command:

          lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"

      • Do you have NVIDIA drivers installed succesfully?

        Could you also post output of following command:

        lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"

      Not sure how to force it to only read the GTX to continue. Can anyone help me?

      • Hi John,

        Problem here is NVIDIA Optimus, could you disable it from BIOS/UEFI?

    5. after step 2.7 \ reboot my system goes into a fast-blinking curser and my HD are blinking without any perceivable cause. I can reboot with control-alt-delete and likely back out but I would like to move forward

    7. Hi JR. I upgraded to 390.147 a few days ago, which worked for kernel-5.15.12 on Fedora 34. But after upgrading to kernel-5.15.13 this morning the reboot failed. (5.15.12 is still OK.) My VGA is GF116 [GeForce GTX 550 Ti] (rev a1). Should I wait to see if yet a more recent driver (> 390.147) appears? I always rely on your marvelous assistance! Thanks so much.

    8. When i perform the steps in 4.2 and then run 4.3 i get the following errors

      libkmod: kmod_config_parse: /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf line 1: ignoring bad line starting with ‘add_drivers+=”‘
      libkmod: kmod_config_parse: /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf line 2: ignoring bad line starting with ‘install_items+=”‘

      what do I need to do to fix this.?

      Reply
      • Hi Steve,

        Looks like that you have add_drivers and install_items lines in /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf ? Both should be in /etc/dracut.conf.d/nvidia.conf file.

    9. OH. I tried again with 390.147 with (in run level 3) kernel-5.15.13, and this time it all worked fine. I have no idea what the problem was on January 11. Oh well.

      • Hi Peter,

        This is weird. It sounds that dkms has failed to compile the driver for some reason. dkms build log might help to debug problem. Currently it’s clean, but if this happens again. Great to hear that everything works now.

    10. Excellent guide, works like a charm.

      One suggestion for improvement – you forgot to mention adding “nvidia-drm.modeset=1” to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX in the grub file for users that want Wayland available after installing the driver.

    11. For step 2.1, you forgot to put 5.15 for 340.108, although it appears in the link. For the patch.

      • Thanks Lyes, I added missing kernel 5.15.

      • You don’t know?? What caused the inability to simultaneously use 2 different parity (integrated and PCI) drivers of NVIDIA GeForce 1660 GTX and AMD Radeon Vega 8 graphics cards on Fedora 32???

        P S After installing NVIDIA drivers and switching to the BIOS on the integrated GPU AMD Fedora does not boot from the integrated GPU ???🤔🤔🤔 When booting from NVIDIA, everything is fine and working.

    14. I have installed the latest nvidia on a fedora 35 machine with this features:

      nvidia-installer: version 510.47.03

      Linux 5.16.7-200.fc35.x86_64 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Feb 6 19:53:54 UTC 2022 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      02:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation TU117M [GeForce GTX 1650 Mobile / Max-Q] (rev a1)

      There is one thing that puzzles me. When I run nvidia-settings I cannot see the following sections in the main menu:

      X Sever information
      X Server display configuration
      XScreen 0

      I can only see: System Information, GPU 0 Information, Application Profiles, nvidia-settings configurations. Is it normal?

      This is the output of nvidia-smi:

      The only way I have to use nvidia card is to set these variables:

      setenv __NV_PRIME_RENDER_OFFLOAD 1
      setenv __GLX_VENDOR_LIBRARY_NAME nvidia
      But it apparently screws something up

      Any suggestions?
      Thank you

    15. Hi again,

      I’m still having to execute
      NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.147.run
      every time there’s a kernel update. During the dnf upgrade, it says there’s an error:
      “could not find dkms.conf file”. Maybe my
      “NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.147.run” is in the wrong place (it’s in my home directory at
      /home/drip/src/nvidia/) and/or my dkms.conf file is in the wrong place (it’s in

      /usr/src/nvidia-390.147/dkms.conf).

      Any thoughts about what I should do?

      Otherwise, all is fine. uname -a shows

      Linux anna 5.16.10-200.fc35.x86_64 #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Feb 16 13:28:00 UTC 2022 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      and lspci | grep VGA shows

      01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF116 [GeForce GTX 550 Ti] (rev a1)

      Many thanks for all your clear and impeccable instructions.
