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

    3. 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.

    5. 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.

    6. hello sir, excellent tutorial!

      I was successful on Fedora 25 with an HP Elitebook 8770w, here’s the output respectively:

    9. Hi,

      I think it was faulty to invoke the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-381.22.run via the remote ” ssh – X ..” command. After reboot the monitor is black (HDMI).
      The corresponding “monitor section” is empty.

      Section “Monitor”
      Identifier “Monitor0”
      VendorName “Unknown”
      ModelName “Unknown”
      HorizSync 28.0 – 33.0
      VertRefresh 43.0 – 72.0
      Option “DPMS”
      EndSection

      The NVIDIA Software Installer for Unix/Linux.

      How can I re-create /etc/X11/xorg.conf its monitor-section?
      Regards

    10. I already installed the driver in Fedora 25 can I still run the dnf update command as I normally do? To do a complete system update is it necessary to uninstall the driver and after the update reinstall?

    11. I am new to linux and fedora. I freshly installed Fedora 25. However, my installation of NVIDIA driver (following the above steps) fails during the installation step ( ./NVIDIA-Linux-*.run). I am posting the error output of my nvidia-installer.log file.
      ERROR: Failed to run `/usr/sbin/dkms build -m nvidia -v 375.66 -k 4.2.8-200.fc22.x86_64`: Error! echo

    12. Thanks a lot.

      Got a worrying message during the non-GUI nvidia driver installation:
      “An incomplete installation of libglvnd was found.Do you want to install a full copy of libglvnd?This will overwrite any existing libglvnd libraries.”

      Which i responded with: “yes, overwrite” and it pretty much worked.

      Here’s my output:

      1: nvidia-installer: version 381.22 ([email protected]86-rhel47-02)
      2: Linux s 4.11.7-200.fc25.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Jun 26 15:58:22 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      I was in the process of updating the system while i stumbled across this great article so for people who are worried they ran “dnf update” before making any changes, there shouldn’t be any.
