Thank you very much for this!

Installation of 340.102 failed at DKMS step
I’ve tried a patch called 4.11 I found somewhere and this didn’t work either

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

1. Unable to load the nvidia-drm kernel module

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.

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!
