The date is 7th May and Nvidia just released stable 375.66 drivers!!! This is newer than the 375.39 drivers that are included patched in this post’s set of instructions. This new stable released includes suppor tof GTX 1080 Ti’s.

Dear author, is it possible to get Fedora-patched version of those latest drivers? I’m sure lots of people would be interested in it, especially those owning GTX 1080 Ti’s.

Awesome guide, thank you so much!

Hi Joshua T,

I just updated this guide and tested nVidia 375.66 drivers. Installs and works normally without any patch.

So just download it from nVidia site. And follow this guide, if you want to upgrade, then just boot runlevel 3 and run installer and boot back to desktop (runlevel 5).

Hi, can u help me? I recently followed this guide and installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-375.66

How do I know if it really works? I mean i was able to use it now but it feels hot and I can’t use another monitor.

This is the output of the confirmation commands:

nvidia-installer -v |grep version; uname -a; lspci |grep -i VGA;

Hi alur,

I think that problem is your Intel VGA controller. Could you disable it from BIOS/UEFI?

Hi All

feel free to update to newest NVIDIA drivers
as 381.22 is out from 9th May 2017
just installed yesterday, no patch is needed
381.22 is working correctly my 1050Ti

FYI Fedora 25 has a problem with classic gnome desktop
if depth 30 is set in xorg.conf
and can not use the icons on the desktop
so I went back to using depth 24 for now all is up & running again

as summary
asus 1050Ti + nvidia 381.22 driver + HDMI2.0
4k@60Hz 8bit + samsung TV UE65KS7000
working fine for the moment

I hope in future to enable 10bit 4:2:0 over HDMI2.0 for HDR
once linux drivers becomes more stable

Hello, could someone kindly give me a hand on this ?
I cannot make this work :(

in details the graphic card is still Intel® Kabylake GT2
Only one thing that did not appear when I installed it is

Simply did not happen

Hi Colin,

Problem is here:


00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 591b (rev 04)
01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile] (rev a1)

Described in step 1.2 NVIDIA Optimus Technology.

If you can’t disable Intel Graphics from BIOS/UEFI, then this guide won’t work for you. You have to check Bumblebee Project.

I was afraid of that. Indeed I does not seem to be able to disable it. I own a dell xps 9560, so if you come across a fix to disable it and get the courage to drop an answer I’ll be grateful. Thanks for the guide anyway !

Thanks for nothing

On a completely clean installation of Fedora 25, I get “Unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel.” when running the NVIDIA drivers.

Hi there I am having nvidia Geforce 820M on Fedora 25 with Optimus, technology.

When ever I run “nvidia-settings” it gives the following error. And when I go All Setting -> Details. Under the graphics it show “Intel® HD Graphics 5500 (Broadwell GT2)”

Had some trouble with Fedora 25 and 381.22, but managed to fix it. First, my system, for some reason, had an extra libGL.so version that should not be present:

/usr/lib64/libGL.so.1.2.0 should be removed. You can do so manually and then


dnf reinstall libglvnd-glx

to correct the installation files and symlinks.

Next, the nvidia-installer also checks for the presence of libglvnd files that are not installed by default. You need to make sure you have these packages installed:


dnf install libglvnd-opengl libgl-devel pkgconfig

These extra packages will remove all libglvnd related warnings and give you a clean install log at /var/log/nvidia-installer.log.

Note: You need to remove the “nomodeset” from the Grub configuration else you will get the black screen of sadness…

but it’s not perfect.

Can’t get Cinnamon Desktop working or the external monitor.

I did try Bumblebee because of the Optimus issue but it was unreliable – an “lspci” command or attenpt to run Cinnamon crashed the machine…

My screen goes blank & won’t resume. Happens on others besides Fedora, but this fixes it. Thank you! Is there any down side to running both the 32 bit and 64 bit? Steam requires the 32 bit apparently.
