Thanks for the guide, I was having major issues with my desktop freezing up to 10 times per day and the journal pointed at nouveau being the issue. Followed your guide and will see if my issue goes away. Output of the commands you asked for below.

I’m sure this question have been asked already, but I don’t know how to search through the 50 pages of comments…
How can I install the 32-bit lib support for the driver once I’ve installed the latest one? (I’ve just installed v384.69 flawless on Fedora 26 following this guide). I need the 32-bit support for Steam for Linux.
According to Steam guide, I should install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686, but since the driver installed following this guide are not managed by the package manager (dnf) apparently (no ‘*nvidia*’ package listed among the installed), I wonder if installing a xorg package (with eventual dependencies) this way may break something.
Or is there a way to install these lib through the nvidia-installer?

You can install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 from the rpmfusion-nonfree repo (https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-26.noarch.rpm).
If you use Fedy, that repo will be installed already. Keep in mind you would want to install the package, boot into runlevel 3 equiv. (sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target) and then reinstall your NVIDIA binary driver. Change back to runlevel 5 equiv (sudo systemctl set-default graphical.target) and you should be able to successfully launch Steam. HTH!

Thanks a lot for the prompt reply.
Actually, I haven’t had the time to try, yet… But I’ve just noted that at point 2.8.5 of this guide it’s mentioned that the NVIDIA installer specifically asks about installing the 32-bit compatibility libs. I’m pretty sure I’ve selected yes to this prompt.
Would this be enough to have the libs for Steam?
(I know the best thing would just be to try installing Steam right away and see… but since I don’t have the chance to do it for another couple of days, I’m just posting here to discuss a bit… maybe also somebody else finds it useful)

A bit long but easy to follow and educational.
Success at the first trial. Thank you.

Hello.

I have a few questions but most importantly one: How to uninstall?

I struggle with managing the nvidia drivers like this, when manually installed. How do I e.g. install CUDA? Can I just install the repo from DNF (I get some message that packages could not be uninstalled).
So I would like to revert everything done here and start fresh.

I can also not run Steam (although I installed the 32bit version along when it asked me to in the nvidia installer) which is one of the biggest problems.

Otherwise it worked fine.

Here my output (I don’t have the nvidia-installer program):

Linux computer_name 4.12.13-300.fc26.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Sep 14 16:00:38 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK107GLM [Quadro K2000M] (rev a1)

Update: Steam works now strangely after installing cuda. I have the fear that it somehow installed some nvidia dependencies with it and now I have two drivers installed (one via fusion and one via this installation). HELP

On Fedora 26, with a Lenovo dual-xeon desktop, I had to disable Secure Boot in the bios — otherwise I got an error about being unable to load the nvidia-drm module (even with selinux disabled). PLEASE add a note that this requires disabling Secure Boot (or a way to sign the modules and allow secure boot).

Thanks! other that that, it was no problem

Wow, never came across instructions that worked seemlessly before!

Installed new GT1030 into an Intel CPU desktop running fedora 26. Followed instructions, every step worked and the dual displays set up perfectly.

Very appreciated, many thanks.
