    2. 2.6.2 Edit /etc/sysconfig/grub

      This should be /etc/default/grub at least for Fedora 27. Things in /etc/sysconfig/grub have no effect on the grub config being built by grub2-mkconfig. The rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau needs to be appended to /etc/default/grub, followed by the rest of your instructions.

      I verified this by adding a grub config line to /etc/sysconfig/grub, built a new grub config with grub2-mkconfig and viewed the contents of /boot/grub2/grub.cfg confirming the rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau was *not* included. After rebooting into multi-user.target, nouveau was still loaded.

      When I moved the blacklist line to /etc/default/grub, rebuilt the grub config and ran dracut again, and rebooted, only then was nouveau not loaded and I could proceed with the nvidia install.

      • Hi dephekt,

        /etc/sysconfig/grub is a same file, symlink to /etc/default/grub (on clean installed Fedora 27):

        
        ls /etc/sysconfig/grub -la
        lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 15 Oct 24 13:01 /etc/sysconfig/grub -> ../default/grub
        

        So you can use both.

        Btw. this /etc/default is more Debian/Ubuntu style configuration directory and /etc/sysconfig is more Fedora/RHEL style configuration directory.

        Check ls -la /etc/sysconfig on Fedora/RHEL and ls -la /etc/default on Debian/Ubuntu.

        • You’re right. I’m not sure why grub2-mkconfig didn’t build grub.cfg properly when I tested that before posting my comment. Perhaps I forgot a step or something.

          /etc/sysconfig/grub certainly is a link to /etc/default/grub in F27 on a fresh install.

    7. Patched 340.xxx installer does not work with new 4.14 kernel on fedora 27

      dkms stops with errors and throws kernel configuration invalid.

    8. Anybody tried the upgrade from Fedora 26 to 27?

      I’d like to, but I’m not sure if it can be done smoothly… Can I just do a regular upgrade from 26 to 27 (usually I do by command line) and it should be ok?

      Any hint would be really appreciated, thanks.

      Reply
      • If anybody care… Just a regular upgrade to F27 does the trick perfectly.
        I didn’t have to do anything else, just upgrade with the command line tools and everything was working perfectly again.

        I guess the trick is in dkms, which correctly takes care of recoumpiling the modules on the updated kernel.

    9. Will you have a 4.14 kernel patch and a 340.104 driver?

    11. Hi! Is it possible to have a small CHANGELOG of this article? Just to see what has been added or edited since previous version. Thank You in advance.

      • Hi Artem,

        Yes it’s possible, normally I just update nVidia drivers version numbers, patched drivers to work with latest kernels and some screenshot. Idea and procedure how to install nVidia drivers is same.
