Clear and concise and it worked like a charm.

Thank you very much for this!

Getting error while installing ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-375.66.run

1. Unable to load the nvidia-drm kernel module
2. No discrete VGA device found

My laptop is an Acer Aspire 7520-5185 with:
AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual-core processor TK-55 1.8Ghz (2 cpu cores)
Nvidia GeForce 7000M TurboCache graphics card
3GB DDR memory
17″ WXGA Acer CrystalBrite screen
160GB hard drive
DVD-Super DL writer
802.11 b/g wireless

After I installed Fedora 26, it booted okay but after I login to the gnome login screen, it goes blank and hangs.
CTRL-ALT-F2 brings up a terminal login and I can login and run Unix commands so all seems well.

I downloaded this driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.117.run and
and followed your steps.

Everything went well until I ran the above NVIDIA…run
Near the end it failed and reported an error.
Now my graphical terminal login screen blinks … Started Gnome Display Manager

Did I install the correct NVIDIA…run file?
Any help would be appreciated.

Using your guide I was able to convert my System76 Onyx Pro build from Ubuntu to Fedora 26. Thank you so much, this was an excellent walkthrough

Awesome guide, thank you! Just installed Fedora, never used Linux before, and now my screen resolution doesn’t look like poop anymore!

I followed your tutorial because my HDMI didn’t work.
HDMI works now but I had an (false?) error in the nvidia installer at the end : ” ERROR unable to load the nvidia-drm kernel module”. The log said driver &co are OK… and there is the error with nvidia-drm kernel.

Thanks for your doc

the guide got really handy – with Fedora 26 newly installed and a 4K display graphical window managers got stuck for me every now and then with the complet desktop hanging. Getting rid of noveau and installing proper Nvidia drivers fixed it for good! many thanks!

Well crap.
I followed this tutorial successfully, only to notice afterward that I have Nvidia Optimus …
Is there any easy steps I can follow to undo the whole thing ?

I have seen that graphic card NVidia supports 304.xx driver, if I install the patched ” (Download NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.135 + Kernel 4.12/4.11/4.10/4.9/4.8/4.7/4.6/4.5/4.4/4.3 ” will not work with Gnome, is it correct?

Hi Sinuhe,

Yes, unfortunately nVidia 304.xx drivers won’t work with Gnome 3.24/3.22/3.20/3.18 desktop. Only option is use some other Desktop (or Window Manager), like KDE, XFCE, LXDE, etc.

Hi JR

Thanks for your attention, I have installed Fedora 26 Mate, I follow the instructions for setup NVidia Graphic, however…

i have the error:

failed to run ‘/sbin/dkms build -m nvidia -v 304.135 -k
kernel preparationunnecessary for this kernel

Can I help you, please

Hi Sinuhe,

Actually you can download 304.137 directly from nVidia site and try to run it. I just tested it and it should work without any patches.

On Supermicro dual CPU MB, *only* the built-in video card (ASPEED) works. Once, first time after install, I saw a glimp of Fedora logo on the screen connected to the GTX 970. On Windows both screens connected to the GTX970 work fine without any changes in the bios.

Hi bert,

Is it possible to disable ASPEED from BIOS? I have seen same style problems with integrated Intel/ATI Graphics. In theory it’s possible hide/mask ASPEED device and get nVidia card working without touching BIOS, but many case this will cause problems, when your computer go sleep mode or some other special cases.
