I have a nvidia GTX 980 with optimus technology and i am really finding it difficult to install drivers on fedora 23. I have seen the bumblebee project but should i first install the nvidia drivers? Anyone did this before?

iam using
AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1055T Processor

GTX 670
i tried to disable the nouveau and tried to make nVidia installer executable .. i did all the steps but still nothing
when i rebooting to runlevel 3 i tried to open the nvidia .run but it always say it can not open the file no such file name or directory … so i tried sh nvidia.run
and it is opend and i start the installing by accepting the nvidia bla bla bla ..
but then error come out and it is say that nouveau driver is in use !!!!!!
i even installed anew fresh installation because when i login back to kde kernel it was not showing the colors right and icant even read .. iam doing this and keeping on reading all over the internet for more than 4 days now ..
i really starting to hate this …

Thanks!

Okay, first problem is that the nouveau module is still loaded. You can verify it, when you boot to runlevel 3 and run following command:


lsmod |grep nouveau

If you see any output, then it’s loaded.

Then you can post output of following commands here:


uname -a

lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"

cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

grep GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX /etc/sysconfig/grub

rpm -qa xorg-x11-drv-nouveau

dkms –version:
dkms: 2.3.0.0
Can you advise something?
