Originally installed following your instructions with Nvidia 367.57, just did a dnf update, boot runlevel 3 and nvidia-installer –update to the versions below. Everything is running well.

Thank you so much – awesome, awesome guide!

I had this weird issue that my f24 install on a 2009 Mac Mini was working fine, but every subsequent kernel update (3 in total) would result in a black screen (no signal to monitor) when booting.

The only error message I was able to find was “ACPI: \_SB_.PCI0.IXVE.IGPU failed to evaluate _DSM”, which I traced back to a possible issue with the graphics driver, but without much help to resolve it.

I ultimately figured that installing the Nvidia drivers might be the resolution and came across your guide. I had to tweak it a little bit as I was booted into an older kernel, but I was updating the most recent version (i.e. I copied the kernel name instead of using $uname when re-generating the initramfs.

But it worked flawlessly and I am booted into f25 now with a beautiful GUI :-)

Thank you!

I could not run Steam after installing this way and I had to install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 because of this error: libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

Just running the above – in order to check something. I had a lot of trouble trying to reinstall the nouveau drivers. I then remembered to edit /etc/dnf/dnf.conf to remove the “exclude x11-*” line. Once I’d done this, it worked perfectly. Otherwise, dnf keeps saying it cannot find a match

I have encrypted volume, and, as I understood, I can’t input the password…

Hi Abay and Dmitriy,

Could you post output of following command:


lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"
reply Reply
Dmitriy

I can’t :-)
The boot stops on:
[OK] started forward password requests to wall directory watch
so, here I should enter the password for LUKS, my home is encrypted. But nothing happens. I tried add to kernel params this:
systemd.unit=multi-user.target
but unsuccessfully.
The boot ends with:
dracut:/#
I will try to boot with LiveUSB and return back all changes.

After a Fedora 24 upgrade (2016-11-26) on a Lenovo ThinkStation S20 with nVidia Quadro FX4800, video (X11) failed. I installed the rpmfusion drivers (nvidia-340xx), but they also failed.

I installed the nVidia proprietary drivers, following your instructions to the letter. I was able to login via SSH from a laptop (also running Fedora 24), so copy-and-paste saved a lot of time and (I think) reduced typing errors to none.

Now the system seems to to working perfectly again.

I have been happy with this card for editing photos (digiKam), audio (Audacity), and a few short videos (OpenShot, etc.), but now I am considering upgrading the card if the Quadro FX 4800 (GT200GL) hardware (340.xx) will not be supported in Fedora 25 with newer versions of Xorg.

Thanks for posting such helpful clear instructions.

Excellent work. Just updated 24 to 25. Then found the HDMI interface would just hang. Followed the guide and everything went back to working properly. Then there was an update just out – guess it messed with the x11 stuff and now its really broke, no xwindows at all. Recommendations? I don’t seem to be able to read comments, so if possible pm me. Thanks.

I followed tutorial above, installation of driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-375.20 went smoothly, but after reboot system got stuck before gui login has appeared.

I can use terminal but have no GUI, could this be because I didnt use the patched version NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-364.19-patched.run but the new version?

[nouse@Far2016 ~]$ nvidia-installer -v |grep version

kernel-modules-extra-4.8.6-300.fc25.x86_64
kernel-modules-extra-4.8.10-300.fc25.x86_64

So I tried nvidia-uninstall

and

$ sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-364.19-patched.run

Which ends in
ERROR: Installation has failed.

So I tried to install the 375.20 version and it installs, but still no gui login.

But the computer doesnt hang as it did before, so I guess it half good..

Maybe a reinstall and try again approach will fix it..

Something wrong with F25, used to work at first (only some problem with Plymouth) then some update broke gnome (I guess it has something to do with wayland and xorg) I cannot log in into gdm (black screen, though consolle works). Tried with lightdm and it works but still gnome not working, installed cinnamon and it works but still not gnome.

Hi rick,

You could try reinstall xorg and mesa packages:


dnf reinstall xorg-*
dnf reinstall mesa*

Reinstalling xorg and mesa didn’t work, instead for all of you who have the same problem (no gdm or gnome but all other DE ) the problem was mutter 3.22.2, downgrading to mutter 3.22.1
(https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comments/5ce6a6/black_screen_on_gnome_login_and_xorgwayland_switch/)
worked flawlessy, now I got back gdm and gnome. Still have no plymouth on boot, it shows only when I turn off pc.
As always, thank you for this guide.
