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?

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.

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.

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

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:
[xinting@localhost ~]$ nvidia-installer -v |grep version

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.
