Had to install kernel-devel and dkms first. Apart from that it worked on first try :-) Thumbs up!

What a great site and what a resource for those of us running Fedora. I upgraded to fedora 25 about 6 weeks ago and I have been running Nvidia 340.102 drivers (patched version from your site) with no issues on 4.10.x kernel versions. I upgraded to kernel version 4.11.3 over the weekend and my graphics are not starting properly. Could this be related to moving from kernel version 4.10.x to 4.11.x?

Happy to troubleshot this but I am not quite sure where to start.

Hi Charlie,

I have been a bit busy now, but just updated this guide and added kernel 4.11 patched nVidia installers (340.102 and 304.135).

Everything went smoothly except that for some reason kernel-devel installed a later version than my kernel. I had to run “dnf distro-sync” prior to the “Run NVIDIA Binary” step to fix the issue.
