This procedure worked great for me. Back to regular Xorg w/ Nvidia drivers – which gives me some color management – per display (I have 3).

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’).

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?

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”.
