Fedora 28/27/26 nVidia Drivers Install Guide - Comment Page: 35

This is guide, howto install nVidia proprietary drivers on Fedora 28/27/26/25/24/23/22/21 and disable Nouveau driver. This guide works with GeForce 6/7/8/9/200/300/400/500/600/700/800/900/10 series cards. GeForce 400/500/600/700/800/900/10 series cards works with 390.xx and 396.xx nVidia drivers GeForce 8/9/200/300 series cards works with 340.xx nVidia drivers GeForce 6/7 series cards works with 304.xx nVidia drivers This is totally different guide than my earlier guides, like Fedora 20 nVidia driver install. This guide uses nVidia drivers directly from nVidia site and dkms to help on kernel updates. Have to say that I have had and heard strange problems with different repos...

    1. Great manual. Thank you SOOOO MUCH! After upgrading to Fedora 25 I coudn’t use nVidia 340 driver. Noveau driver crashed several times a day especially when playing some video in mplayer. You saved me, thanks once again. Good job.

    2. Thank a lot for this. My card stopped working when I fedupped to 25, but all’s well now.

      Followed your instructions to the letter (had to use a second laptop for the runlevel 3 mode).
      One thing which was different was the missing symlink during the nvidia driver installation – it was “libEGL.so”

    6. Driver 304.134 was released. Is it compatible with Fedora 25 Wayland and GNOME 3.22?

      • Hi Corlat Emanuel,

        I just updated this guide and patched 304.134 installer to work with 4.8+ kernel.

        Unfortunately this update doesn’t fix nVidia 304.134 incomptability with Gnome 3.22.2.

        nVidia 304.134 change log:
        – Added support for X.Org xserver ABI 23 (xorg-server 1.19)
        – Fixed a bug that allowed nvidia-installer to attempt loading kernel modules that were built against non-running kernels.

    9. Everything worked at first, now I’ve booted up again and am faced with a black screen and a cursor. I was able to log in as the elements seemed to be there, as when moving the mouse around it would change if hovering over a text field, etc. Still a black screen, I got a popup from one program starting up(yakuake) and was able to open yakuake, but only once, this doesn’t work anymore. Cursor still hanging in blackness. Ctrl+Alt+F2 works, and here is the output of those commands:
      nvidia-installer -v | grep version:
      nvidia-installer: version 375.26 ([email protected])
      uname -a:
      Linux localhost.locadomain 4.8.14-300.fc25.x86_64 #1 SMP
      lspci | grep -i VGA:
      01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP104 [GeForce GTX 1070] (rev a1)

      The problem is, though it looks to be due to the drivers, I can’t go back to Nouveau, as without the Nvidia drivers my mouse doesn’t work. Would appreciate any help.

      • Forgot to mention, I’m using KDE Plasma, and installed the KDE Plasma Fedora, as such I have no gnome stuff.

      Some details: Is made on a new clear installation of fedora 25. I have a laptop with i7-6700k (yes, the desktop cpu), gtx 970m et g-sync screen.
      On windows, i have disable optimus for the g-sync.
      Bizarrely, the Intel igp is not dectete with “lspci |grep -i VGA” (also with nouveau driver)
