With the latest Kernel update to 4.10 I needed the nvidia driver 375.39 together with this patch: https://leigh123linux.fedorapeople.org/pub/patches/nvidia/kernel_4.10.patch

If you have the nvidia[…].run file, apply the patch and install the driver by something like “sudo ./nvidia[…].run –apply-patch /path/to/patchfile.patch

If you have the installer extracted, cd into the directory with the extracted files (i.e. the directory containing nvidia-installer, LICENSE and so on) and run something like “patch -p1 < /path/to/patchfile.patch" and install as usual with "sudo ./nvidia-installer").

I hope this helps!

(For those fearless peaple running kernel 4.11:
There is another patch for this here, you might need to apply both: https://leigh123linux.fedorapeople.org/pub/patches/nvidia/)

First of all, thanks for your work as this is an awesome source of information for me for several years!
I recently updated my kernel on my F25 to 4.10+ and I don’t see yet an updated patch? Should I use the 4.9+? (I tried and couldn’t​ get it to work, I don’t have a login screen).

Thanks again!

Thank you so much for this. After several failed attempts at installing the drivers on a fresh Fedora install, this finally saved me!!

Worked flawlessly for me! Granted it was on a fresh install of Fedora 25. Regardless this is one of the best guides for installing the nvidia drivers for linux that I have seen!

Sorry for silly question. Should I repeat drivers installation on each Kernel update?
