Fedora 28/27/26 nVidia Drivers Install Guide - Comment Page: 46

This is guide, howto install nVidia proprietary drivers on Fedora 28/27/26/25/24/23/22/21 and disable Nouveau driver. This guide works with GeForce 6/7/8/9/200/300/400/500/600/700/800/900/10 series cards. GeForce 400/500/600/700/800/900/10 series cards works with 390.xx and 396.xx nVidia drivers GeForce 8/9/200/300 series cards works with 340.xx nVidia drivers GeForce 6/7 series cards works with 304.xx nVidia drivers This is totally different guide than my earlier guides, like Fedora 20 nVidia driver install. This guide uses nVidia drivers directly from nVidia site and dkms to help on kernel updates. Have to say that I have had and heard strange problems with different repos...

    9. TOO MUCH code, it’s unacceptable !
      Ubuntu (and derivates) install these drivers
      with only 1 click !
      Fedora is optimal Linux distro, but i uses
      others because it !
      If Fedora wishes popular such Ubuntu
      needs review these points imediatelly !!
      All news versions of Fedora does not
      show any advance in this side.

      • Hi ronaldo,

        This is quote from Fedoraproject site:
        Fedora itself is a completely free and open source project. Fedora has not only a publicly-available git repository for all its software, but also offers source code for every piece of the project, from build systems to web sites to artwork to documentation. All code must be covered by a free and open source license for inclusion in Fedora, guaranteeing your rights to modify and redistribute the software. The only things that are controlled by Red Hat are the Fedora trademarks. These protections are in place to ensure the integrity and continued value of the Fedora name and brand for use by the Fedora community, nothing more.

        So what you think, should we blame Fedora or nVidia, if Fedora use only free and open source licensed software and nVidia publish closed source software.

        Unfortunately you have to wait until Fedora change their main principles or when nVidia publish their source code and make it free or open source. Then you might see nVidia drivers “one click”-installer on Fedora.

    13. Hello,
      I tried to setup the nvidia driver on my new Dell laptop precision M3520 Mobile workstation with Quadro M620 graphics card running Fedora 26.
      The installation was successful but when I reboot in graphical mode, the X seems to be hanging and I never get a login window.
      Here are some information
      % nvidia-installer -v |grep version

      Do you have any idea what is going wrong?
      Thank you
      All the best,

      • Hi Patrick,

        Could you disable Intel integrated graphics from BIOS/UEFI?

    14. My experience:
      [~]$ nvidia-installer -v |grep version
      nvidia-installer: version 304.135 ([email protected])
      [~]$ uname -a
      Linux darkmoon.inthesky 4.11.9-100.fc24.i686 #1 SMP Wed Jul 5 17:25:42 UTC 2017 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
      [~]$ lspci|grep -i vga
      01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G72M [GeForce Go 7400] (rev a1)
      During installation process, compilation was ok, but kernel refused to load module with the error:
      NVRM: CPU hotplug notifier registration failed!
      Unfortunately my old system (HP laptop with Intel Centrino Duo) doesn’t support the “Page Attribute Table” (cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep pat) and the nvidia code doesn’t seem to manage correctly this state. So the only way I found to get the driver functional is disable this extension adding the following line to /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf:
      options nvidia NVreg_UsePageAttributeTable=0
      If anyone has a better solution, please share :)
      Meantime I hope it will help who has my same problem.

      • After some test, I finally removed the workaround from /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf and proposed the patch detailed here.

        Regards,
        M.

    15. Just wanted to add to this >>
      Instructions are perfect for Geforce 745 and teh only problem I encountered was to do with an error
      >> Unable to load the ‘nvidia-drm’ kernel module.

      This was handled by turning of Secureboot from my BIOS
