    1. fedora35 kernel 5.18+ may need some patch for nvidia driver 390.151 (May 16, 2022).

    2. This is a very well put together tutorial.
      Worked like a charm on Fedora 36.
      Hope you’ll update it in the future for next Fedora releases.
      Thank you good sir :)

    3. Thank you for your work.
      Please tell me how to open a “Run a Command” modal window on Fedora 36

      • Hi Sergey,

        Press ALT+F2 to open “Run a command”.

      • Sorry, my mistake. I am did not comply instructions.

    4. Hi JR,

      Is there a way I can avoid (in run level 3) having to rerun
      when a new kernel is installed?

      nvidia-installer -v | grep version responds with
      nvidia-installer: version 390.151 ([email protected]) Wed Apr 20

      and uname -a responds with
      Linux anna 5.18.13-200.fc36.x86_64 #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Fri Jul 22 14:03:36 UTC 2022 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      and lspci | grep -E “VGA|3D” responds with
      01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF116 [GeForce GTX 550 Ti] (rev a1)

      It’s not a big deal, but I was just wondering. The reboot fails whenever I’ve previouly run
      NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.151-patched-kernel-5.18.run (skipping any DKMS options).

      Thanks. Otherwise everything works like a charm.

    5. Getting an error:
      ERROR: Failed to run `/usr/sbin/dkms build -m nvidia -v 515.57 -k

      Please install the linux-headers-5.18.13-200.fc36.x86_64 package or
      use the –kernelsourcedir option to tell DKMS where it’s located.

      There is no package called linux-headers but kernel-headers.
      I do not know how to solve this, can you please help me?
      Best Regards

      Please sign so that pgp can allow upgrade!

      • Thanks David, just signed packages. Some reason signing was failed earlier.

    8. Hi JR,

      Any response to my previous note of 7/24/22? It’s still behaving that way whenever the kernel gets upgraded, so I have to re-run (in run level 3)

      Thanks for any thoughts,
      — Peter

      • Oh, my bad. I had neglected to realize that 390.151 had been updated to 390.154 as of August 2, 2022. So I switched to 390.154, and probably now my question becomes irrelevant. Hence, never mind about my question.

        • Hello Peter,

          If you still have problems with automatic NVIDIA module rebuilding, then please check output of following command:

          dkms status
      • I try build new kernels as soon possible, sometimes Fedora developers are much faster.

    9. I used this guide on fedora 36, i managed to install the driver, updated the kernel to “Linux fedora 5.18.17-200.fc36.x86_64 #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Thu Aug 11 14:36:06 UTC 2022 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux” and no problems

      But theres a new update 5.18.18-200, when I install it, the system wont even let me move to tty, i removed the kernel and everything is back to normal, how can I tell its safe to update the kernel?

      https://imgur.com/a/dLxvvGf <— heres whats updated

      Any help will be appreciated

      • Hello molotovich,

        You should have kernel on exclude list and use kernel updates from inttf repo. If you install kernel from Fedora updates repo, then it won’t work.

    10. NOTE: Take a look at the notes for version 340, you should use the patched kernel driver.

      [[email protected] ~]$ nvidia-installer -v|grep version
      nvidia-installer: version 340.108 ([email protected])
      [[email protected] ~]$ uname -a
      Linux JhonnyVaioFedora 5.19.8-602.inttf.fc36.x86_64 #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Mon Sep 12 10:59:47 EEST 2022 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
      [[email protected] ~]$ lspci|grep -E “VGA|3D”
      01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GT218M [GeForce 310M] (rev a2)
      [[email protected] ~]$

    11. I did the install over the last nvidia drivers, the installer removed the previous one..

      Now it gets stuck on loading once again, but when I switch to another TTY and run the installer as soon as it loads, im thrown to the desktop (not 1 minute before)
