I am getting this error:

Hi Kashif,

You should update your system and try example 384.xx or 387.xx nvidia drivers.

Fedora 26

Following your directions: after installing the driver, I rebooted. In all 3 modes the cursor just goes to the top left corner and the system hangs. I do get an error message prior to this though. dracut-pre-udev[355] failed

How do I fix this?

I get “Unable to load the ‘nvidia-drm’ kernel module” error during the NVidia part. It happens when trying to install the module. Any ideas?

I have installed Nvidia graphics card successfully without errors. Unfortunatelly when I run glxgears it only perform 60 fps. Usually after installer nvidia graphics driver, the fps will much higher. Is it normal?

As the glxgears console output notes, it is:

“Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.”

The 60fps rate is intentional and expected. glxgears is no longer (but once, long ago, was) useful as a maximum-frame-rate stress-test of the graphics card.

Hi,

thanks for this article. Maybe you can add a hint, for deactivating wayland for NVidia, because wayland and NVIDIA are not working together.

The next is, that after i have installed the driver, i was not able to login into gnome. There was only a blank screen. Running again the command “nvidia-xconfig” manually after booting into the console helped here. Just execute the command, reboot, and be happy about a working login :-)

Thanks and regards
danyo

Hi harm,

To add execute permission, just run:


chmod +x /home/popcorn/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-387.34.run

as root or normal user.

Finally a guide that actually works! Fedora 27 – 1050TI
I’ve almost given up completely on Linux because I couldn’t find a distro with a proper guide. I’ve even spent 6 hours one time working to figure it out after I borked an install.

This works great, but it disables the second graphics card (Intel CPU graphics). I’ve had both running on Fedora 27 without doing all these steps, but when I did a ‘dnf update’ it killed the system. I want Nvidia driver for my GTX 1060 graphics card, and a smaller monitor to run off the Intel graphics card. Once again, I’ve done this in the past with Fedora but these steps prohibit it.

hi guys
I need your help

Currently I have such situation:
[root@localhost ~]# lspci |grep -E “VGA|3D”
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK107M [GeForce GT 750M] (rev a1)

“If you see multiple VGA controllers, then check next step and sometimes you might see example Intel VGA controller which have nothing to do with Optimus, normally you can go to BIOS and simply disable it.”

BIOS of my laptop does not allow me to disable the Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller;

Please Suggest me
How i can disable Integrated GController or set NVIDIA controller as a PRIMARY if it is possible.

Thank you
