Worked perfectly – thanks!

I tried earlier 375.66. Worked for month or so. Most have updated kernel at some point. Something blew away the initramfs for the current OS. Then NV driver couldn’t be found. Reinstalled Linux (Fedroa) Used latest NVidia bundles and your clear instructions. Thanks for your diligence!

Getting stuck on 2.7 Reboot to runlevel 3. I execute the command, reboot, and only come up to a blank screen. No keyboard shortcuts except ctrl+alt+del for a reboot seem to work. Any ideas?

Try to write :
nomodeset 3 at the end of line and then press +x
Should looks like:
“rhgb quiet rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau nomodeset 3”

Hello, I have gotten to 2.8.6 and it gives me:

Did I miss something/ do you have any suggestions?

Thanks

That was awesome! Thank you !!!

On my Lenovo P50, I upgraded from fedora 25 to fedora 26 and with nouveau it wouldn’t even boot up. So after some workarounds to bring the system up, I found your page and followed it straight through.
Very nice.
Everything went fine and all exactly as stated through your procedure. There was a proposed overwrite of GLVND libraries, because they were found incomplete in the last step of nvidia installation script.

Here is the output:

[root@signal ~]# nvidia-installer -v |grep version

Hi,
Thanks for your tutorial…
It was a half successful session. I have two screen : monitor asus was perfectly recognized but no way to improve the samsung resolution : sm s22a350h 22″ vga hdmi (unknown and stay to a 640 480!) … I suppose a special driver have to be installed too. … I haven’t find anyone for this screen… except windows versions…

The result of the request after following all your instructions, and configuration of repositories as recommended by Fedora wiki (about nvidia drivers)…

With “1.2 NVIDIA Optimus Technology” do you mean that this guide was not tested with notebooks that uses Optimus?

reply Reply
JR

Yes, this guide works normally for Optimus laptops too, but it’s good to know how NVIDIA Linux drivers works with NVIDIA Optimus laptops (functionality may be limited):

https://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/384.59/README/optimus.html

You can install drivers and use it, but if you have muxless Optimus laptop, then this guide might not be for you. If you have muxless Optimus laptop and want enable offscreen rendering, run CUDA applications or do something else without display, then this guide should work.

Hi, now as Fedora 26 is out, do you think I can update my Fedora 25 with Nvidia drivers version 375.66 and don’t lose them? Or do I need to install them again on the new version? Thanks for help!

Hi Dmitry,

If you want make sure, that you have desktop after upgrade, then update first your Fedora 25 with latest kernel and packages. Then install latest nVidia drivers, like 384.59 (or 381.22) and then upgrade your Fedora 25 to Fedora 26.

When you want to update your nVidia drivers installation, then just do following:

1. Download nVidia drivers installer (step 2.1)
2. chmod +x your installer file (step 2.2)
3. Boot runlevel 3 (step 2.7)
4. Run installer (step 2.8)
5. Reboot back to runlevel 5 (step 2.9)

You can also modify boot parameters on grub to boot runlevel 3 and back runlevel 5.

If you still have problems after F25 to F26 upgrade, then run installer once again on runlevel 3. Sometimes system upgrade might mess something, but normally everything run normally if you system and drivers are up-to-date before upgrade.
