Fedora 28/27/26 nVidia Drivers Install Guide - Comment Page: 58

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...

    2. Animations gone after recent fedora update (yesterday-today). I’m using the latest proprietary driver. Problem remains on my both machines. Is there any workaround over this bug?

      • Hi Floody,

        What you mean with animations?

      • The solution is to reinstall the same Nvidia drivers again following the guide…

        I had the same problem. I think it is caused by the updates of xorg-x11-server-*
        (-Xorg, -Xwayland or -common).

        The Nvidia proprietary drivers were attempted to uninstall. I saw something in the in the output when installing updates with dnf upgrade.
        Anyway your installation is altered and the Nvidia drivers aren’t loaded as expected.

      • Hi Mazzo,

        Do you see Grub? Is your Fedora booting?

        • Hi!
          I couldn’t see the grub.
          I formated. Now it works on nouveau driver, but only after the grub, before that itś all blackscreen.

    4. I get “Unable to load the ‘nvidia-drm’ kernel module” error during the NVidia part.
      I tried this (sudo systemctl set-default graphical.target). Boots into Graphical Login, but then KDE Freezes. Please help.

      • Now I can’t even get back into Command Line Boot. Do I have to reinstall Fedora?

      • Hi Alexei,

        Do you have secureboot enabled on BIOS/UEFI? Try to disable it.

      Tried this because Civ5/steam would completely freeze the system. After this it just crashes…

      System works great though. Haven’t noticed any annoying delays when opening windows yet.

      Thanks!

      • System keeps freezing(no ping/ssh/CTRLALT F) at random. Fedora 27 is worse than redhat 3.1 or what it was in 1986.

        To bad, I really like the rest of it.

        • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and “Add additional drivers” have been completely stable this past time.

          Also, Civ 5: A poster, “P-IH”, on reddit wrote “I had the same problem. I changed “MaxSimultaneousThreads” in the file .local/share/Aspyr/Sid Meier’s Civilizatio 5/config.ini from 8 to 16. In my case it fixed the problem”

          Fixed my problem there as well.

    7. It works, but you should add for russian guys
      After removing nouveau and reboot you`ve into tty1 WITHOUT any suport of russian letters, so you shoud replace driver.run from folder ‘Загрузки’ to any folder with enlish latters, for example, i replace it to /home

    10. Hi, Thanks so much for the guidance. Now I finally installed the Nvidia Driver on my Fedora 27. I am using GeForce 210, and with your patched version of 340.114 it’s finally done! I no long see the line on my screen when I scroll it too fast!

      Here’s the output from the command:
      [[email protected] ~]$ nvidia-installer -v |grep version

    13. Wow!! Thank you! Been hanging out in run-level 3 for last few days trying to get this working.

      Fedora 26
      4.14.13-200
      Nvidia GT218 (Geforce 210)

      Used your NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.104-patched-kernel-4.14.run and your simple easy to read instructions and I’m finally back in runlvl 5.

    14. All done. But now login page falls back on itself when I try to login.
      Any suggestion?

      • Hi Gianni,

        Do you get any error? Do you use Gnome and GDM? Fedora 27?

        Please tell also some info about your nVidia card and drivers version?

    15. I always get a blank screen after login. I have a Dell Latitude E6510 with Fedora 27 and gnome desktop.

      I have followed all the steps without problem.

      My graphics card is an Nvidia Quadro NVS 3100M.

      The system starts smoothly but, after login, the system gets stuck with a blank screen.

      I’ve tried lots of solutions, but with no success.

      Anyone could help me?
