    5. Hello!
      I’m trying to restore plymouth, but when I type
      insmod vbe and vbeinfo I get “vbe.info not found”.
      I’ve tried to looking for on /boot/grub2/ folder and on all filesystem without success (locate vbe.info and find . -name ‘vbe.info’).

    11. Hi, what is the process for upgrading to a newer set of drivers?
      Should I just follow steps from 2.7? Does the installer deal with older versions?

    15. I created blacklist.conf in /etc/modprobe.d and added echo “blacklist nouveau” >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf to the file.

      When I run dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r) I am getting this error:

      libkmod: kmod_config_parse: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf line 1: ignoring bad line starting with ‘echo’

      I am on Fedora 27

      • Hi Haptizum,

        Check what you have on your /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file?

        On step 2.6.1 you should add blacklist nouveau to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, not echo “blacklist nouveau”.
