    1. I previously had my 1050ti working with 375.26 on Fedora 25, but on recent kernel update, it stopped working. If I booted to older kernel, it was fine. Today I thought I would see if I could fix it, and came across your tutorial. However, after following all the steps, trying to boot into kernels 4.9.10, 4.9.12, and 4.9.13, and installing from several version of 375 and 378, the best I can get it an unresponsive login screen. And by unresponsive, I mean absolutely no response to mouse or keyboard. I have tried going to init 3 and doing a setenforce 0, as I read recent selinux policy may be an issue, so I downgraded that to selinux-policy-3.13.1-224.fc25.noarch, but this did not help.

      Any help or pointers in how to recover would be highly appreciated!

      • Hi jayg,

        I just tested with latest packages and kernel 4.9.13 and it’s working normally for me, see:

        Fedora 25, nVidia 378.13, Kernel 4.9.13, Gnome 3.22.2, SELinux 3.13.1-225 enforcing
        Fedora 25 nVidia 378.13 Kernel 4.9.13

        Fedora 25, nVidia 375.39, Kernel 4.9.13, Gnome 3.22.2, SELinux enforcing

        So please try to update all packages to latest versions and reinstall nVidia drivers and then it’s easier to start debugging…

        • Ok JR, thanks for the response. I tried again this morning, and was successful. It appears the behavior I was seeing was not related to the nvidia setup, but rather something was not working with the usb hub I was connected to. Poor timing, but apparently unrelated. In any event, your directions were great, and the working combination for me was:

    3. Hi JR,

      Thanks for your detailled tutorial.
      I have a probem installing the 340 driver on fedora 25 kernel 4.9.
      I did load the patched version as you wrote.
      I also installed all the packages to install the driver.

      When the installer then try to install the driver I get the following error:

      Can not load the kernel module.

      On Fedora 24 with kernel 4.8 everything worked.
      Now I have no more 4.8 kernel to choose on grub and so I can’t run my fedora in graphical mode.

      Any ideas?

      Much regards,

      Tim

        • Hi Tim and Jonathan,

          Just tested patched nVidia 340.102 and installs without problems with latest selinux (3.13.1-225.11.fc25) and kernel (4.9.14-200.fc25) packages.

          If you get still this “Can not load the kernel module.”, it’s SELinux problem and you can of course set SELinux to permissive or disabled mode to get it working.

          Modify /etc/sysconfig/selinux:

          
          SELINUX=enforcing
          
          ## change it to ##
          
          SELINUX=permissive
          ## OR ##
          SELINUX=disabled
          

          Then reboot to runlevel 3 and run nVidia installer again.

          • Hi again,

            I have made an error.
            Instead of installing the acpid package I only installed the acpi rpm.
            So maybe that was the reason I can’t install the driver.

            Later the driver can be installed on 4.9.14.

            Now with kernel 4.10 there is a new problem with the 340.102 driver.

            Maybe you have to provide a new patched driver?

            regards

            Tim

    6. Hey, thanks for the guide. However it doesn’t work for me, on GDM (login) doesn’t load – it flickers and says Ops, something went wrong and there’s a logout button, and that’s it. Any suggestions? I’m on Fedora 25, updated, video is GeForce GTX 750 Ti. Thanks.

    11. One thing you might want to mention is that SELinux blocks the nvidia install script from loading modules if the system is in enforcing mode.

      avc: denied { module_load } for pid=9096 comm=”insmod” path=”/tmp/selfgz7126/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.135/kernel/nvidia.ko”

      This causes the installer to exit with an error message.

      • Hi Michael,

        If you see this error, then change SELinux to permissive or disabled or alternatively create own policy for this.

        I just tested nVidia 304.135 patched installer (on F25 latest packages installed) with SELINUX=enforcing and got module installed and loaded normally.

    14. Could you please submit a patch for kernel 4.10.5-200 (which is the current kernel in fedora 25) with the latest nvida drivers?

      This is freaking hilarious that nvidia does not fix its f*cking source code…
