Fedora 28/27/26 nVidia Drivers Install Guide - Comment Page: 47

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...

    1. These steps are crazy. Why can’t this be simple like in Windows. Just install and some clicks.

      • Hi rock,

        Linux is not Windows. Just like asking “why I can’t use 64Tb RAM on Windows efficiently?” or “Why I can’t boot Windows without GUI?”.

        Maybe you have some reason why you are using Linux, not Windows?

      I didn’t get the Cannot create symlink etc.. errors. Perhaps resolved?

      Thanks for a very well written and easy to follow guide!

      • Hello anormal08,

        Unfortunately I don’t have any Fedora 26 i686 PAE system running, so I don’t have i686 kernel patched version. I can check quickly if I found patch, then this guide should work for you too.

    8. Restore Plymouth doesn’t wok for me since I upgrade My fedora from fc24 to fc25+(fc26 included),when I set plymouth to hot-dog,Splash screen only displayed when reboot/poweroff,but do not show on startup.Sorry for my pool english.grub2 menu background shows correctly,so I think this is not for framebuffer.below is my /etc/defaul/grub file content:
      GRUB_TIMEOUT=12

    9. The Fedora 21 instructions also work flawlessly for Centos 7; the only change I had to make was replacing ‘fedora’ with ‘centos’ in “2.6.3 Update grub2 conf”

    11. Absolute lifesaver! Thank you so much.

      I had a little problem running the executable complaining about kernel headers for fedora25. Needed to do `dnf clean all` then update. Now it works great!

    12. Well once again I used this tutorial to successfully install driver on linux,
      my previous comment was at Semptember 2016 (30 page, also tagget with name kotu). Here details:

      UEFI BIOS Version N1EET57W/1.30
      NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-384.59.run

      In UEFI BIOS I have at tab CONFIG/DISPLAY following options:
      Boot Display Device: ThinkPad LCD
      Shared Display Priority Display Port
      Total Graphic Memory 256 MB
      Graphic Device Discrete Graphic
      Boot Time Extension Disabled
