Hi,

I followed this guide and nvidia driver was installed successfully, but the gui doesnt load. After rebooting, the screen flickers for sometime and is stuck on started GNOME display manager.

Also, one thing I noticed during the installation of this driver was a new error not mentioned above which is as follows.

“Unable to determine the path to install the libglvnd EGL vendor library config files. Check that you have pkg-config and the libglvnd development libraries installed, or specify a path with –glvnd-egl-config-path”

Also, here are the outputs of some of the commands:

# nvidia-installer -v |grep version
nvidia-installer: version 375.26 (buildmeister@swio-display-x86-rhel47-01)

$ lspci | grep -i VGA
04:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF100GL [Quadro 5000] (rev a3)

I am new to all this stuff so please help me.

TIA.

Your guide to installing the NVidia drivers on Fedora worked perfectly. Thanks very much for providing them! I’m not sure where I am supposed to post the output that you requested, but here it is:

Hello there,

Need some help with some problems, and in your guide is said “let me know if you have some problems”, so i’m letting you know.

First when i make the execute the lspci -v command it shows me my VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF117M [GeForce 610M/710M/810M/820M / GT 620M/625M/630M/720M] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) , so i downloaded the appropriate driver(hope so) from the NVIDIA website. It is NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-375.26.run .

Next i chmod-ed the file, then execute it with sudo sh ./path-to-the-file/name-of-the-file .

Everything was great, accept the license agreements, and tought everything will be sexy, but here is where i stuck.

I receive a message that says – ERROR: The Nouveau kernel driver is currently in use by your system. This driver is incompatible with the NVIDIA driver, and must be disabled
before proceeding. Please consult the NVIDIA driver README and your Linux distribution’s documentation for details on how to correctly
disable the Nouveau kernel driver.

OK, so i tried the commands showed in your guide – echo “blacklist nouveau” >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf , nothing happends, so i did it as su –> su echo “blacklist nouveau” >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf , nothing happends.

Also tried the dnf remove xorg-x11-drv-nouveau with sudo , but still nothing.

I’m attaching a file with my notes, and messages i had recieved on the following link – http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=13734593605388483684 , and also the log here – http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=00200865679494955128

Thx in advance

Hi StefanSt,

First it’s good to know your full output of following commands:


lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"

Then, did you generated initramfs, after all changes?

Here is the full output :

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF117M [GeForce 610M/710M/810M/820M / GT 620M/625M/630M/720M] (rev a1)

For the second question I’m not sure for witch files you are asking, here is what is in my pc for initramfs search – http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2a816v8&s=9

If you need i can regenerate completely all of them with the : sudo dracut –regenerate-all –force command but i don’t know do you need that.

have a nice day

I am running into problems getting two different builds to work with this guide. Both using the default Fedora 25 Gnome interface. Fresh install, first thing I do, is a “sudo dnf update” then I reboot, then I follow this guide. Everything looks like it works, then I reboot, and Gnome fails to load.

One box has only the Geforce 980 ti graphics card, the other has a geforce card, and a geforce 1070. The second one, I disabled the onboard video, but it presents the exact same problem as the one with standalone graphics.

From what I have been reading on my searches, this appears to be a problem with Gnome and Wayland, but the patch drivers I see, don’t match the latest from nvidia. Your guide shows pictures of the 375.xx drivers, which is what I am using, but I don’t see where those need to be patched. Is there something I am just overlooking?

Hey,

I posted earlier with some issues, found out it was secure boot. Can’t find my original post to reply to that, but it worked like a charm.

Hello, i successfully installed drivers using your guide, but after the first fedora update gui stop loading – i get black screen instead of login screen. Console view in init 2, for example, works well.
Are there any solutions to the problem? gtx 650.

I found out that problem can be solved by reinstalling nvidia drivers after update, but that means DKMS isn’t working.

reply Reply
JR

Excellent to hear that you got it working!

I guess that dkms is working, but some other updates, example xorg or mesa, could override nvidia drivers files. When you see next kernel update, update just kernel packages and nothing else, then reboot to see is dkms really working or not.

You can of course check dkms status using following command:


dkms status

## Check more options ##
man dkms

I updated only the kernel packeges, rebooted and got the same error:
loading process stop after gnome display manager loaded and screen starts to flicker. So i reinstalled drivers again.
dkms status:
nvidia, 375.26, 4.8.16-300.fc25.x86_64, x86_64: installed
dkms –version:
dkms: 2.3.0.0
Can you advise something?
