Hi!

Thanks for the beautiful guide!

All went perfectly fine, exactly as you said. however my laptop still lists

graphics: Intel Haswell Mobile,

in the details section in the settings. also, nvidia x server settings won’t open…

Nevermind, i did this because of shutdown freeze which i think was caused by the nouveau driver. This is now resolved, so i am happy. :)

After going through this guide two times and having the same outcome, I have decided to leave a comment. During the installation, when rebooting from going back to runlevel 5 after installing the drivers, my OS gets stuck at the end of the kernel startup, just before I have any access to the system. I am unsure what may have been messed up during the installation process, as my second time through I was careful to try and ensure I did not make any mistakes, though the case was that I came across the same outcome. Anyways, thanks for reading, and if I need to reiterate anything I said in this comment, or give more details, that’s fine, I will probably be watching the comments anyways for a follow-up. Thanks again.

I ran this on an Inspiron 7559 with a fresh install of Fedora 26 and it sets things up perfectly. Thanks! And keep up the good work.

Currently running kernel 4.13 and I am getting an error stating that the driver requires the ability to change memory. Any thoughts?

Dell XP3 running Fedora 25 –

I have encrypted drives and I don’t see the pass phrase prompt. No big deal since I can’t see what I’m typing anyway.

I can’t toggle to a console. When I toggle it comes up onthe internal adapter and I can’t switch back. Not that I really need to do this. The console runs on the internal adapter.

I have encrypted drives, too. LUKS come up in text mode for me to enter my passphrase. I had plugged the monitor (DVI) into the graphics card; maybe you left the monitor plugged in to the old/onboard graphics socket?
