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.

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”

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.

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 (buildmeister@swio-display0x86-rhel47-01)
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.

I got no error while installing, but when i reboot after driver install. a screen with “Oh no! Something has gone wrong.”
A problem has occurred and the system can’t recover. please logout and try again.

I tried to install, everything went ok but when I ran the installer at the finish i got some errors and then something like Kernel Module failed. Not touching Fedora for the moment, but please help me!

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)
