Fedora 28/27/26 nVidia Drivers Install Guide - Comment Page: 49

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...

      Clear and concise and it worked like a charm.

      Thank you very much for this!

    4. 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 has GeForce 1080 GPU but not detected. I couldn’t enable through BIOS also. My laptop model MSI GT73VR

    5. 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.

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

    8. 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

    10. 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!

    12. 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 ?

    13. Hi, I have installed Korora Gnome 25, my PC has:
      uname -a
      Linux 4.12.9-200.fc25.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Aug 25 13:23:30 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      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

          Reply
          • 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.

    15. 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.

      The NVIDIA Software Installer for Unix/Linux.

      This program is used to install, upgrade and uninstall The NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver Set for Linux-x86_64.

      Help appreciated, regards, Bert

      • 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.
