Fedora 28/27/26 nVidia Drivers Install Guide - Comment Page: 52

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...

    4. 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. :)

    6. 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.

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

    13. 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?
