    1. Thank you JR for all the work you done/do to help with installing NVIDIA drivers. Following the first 3 steps I notice that after logging in the screen is black. Only after using ESC I go to the desktop.
      Step 4 doesnt improve a lot. Only the (low resolution) plymouth theme I notice and I still notice boot commands on my screen before the login window appears. Whats the difference between efi_uga and efi_gop? Also I tried to use GRUB_GFXMODE=” 1920x1080x24″ instead of “auto” but no difference in resolution when I reboot.

      • Hi Leydekker,

        You could try to add “nomodeset” boot parameter. Check this comment and change (step 2.) number three to “nomodeset”.

        Those /etc/default/grub configs are just examples and normally you could even drop whole GRUB_VIDEO_BACKEND line with UEFI, because those video modules are loaded anyways.

        Then difference between efi_uga and efi_gop:
        The EFI specification defined a UGA (Universal Graphic Adapter) protocol as a way to support device-independent graphics. UEFI did not include UGA and replaced it with GOP (Graphics Output Protocol), with the explicit goal of removing VGA hardware dependencies. (Source: WikiPedia)

        Example some Apple Mac uses EFI not UEFI and need efi_uga, but normally PC UEFI users could use efi_gop (btw. I updated this guide and changed example to efi_gop and alternatively efi_uga, just in case).

    2. Great post Jr,

      I had a problem on the step 2.9.7 “nVidia Installer Xorg Backup”, every step was correctly but on the instalation skipped this step, and then my Fedora 23 didn’t start the X.

      I have a geforce 740m,I tried to install the version 352.63

      Can you help me?
      Thanks

      • Hi Marcelo and thanks!

        Could you post following command output first:

        
        lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"
        

        Looks like GeForce 740M have Optimus, but maybe it’s disabled?

        Reply
        • Sorry Jr, follows :

          “00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0b)”

          “09:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK208M [GeForce GT 740M] (rev a1)”

          I believe that I don’t have the Optimus enabled.

          Reply
          • Unfortunately Optimus is enabled, could you disable Optimus / Intel Graphics from BIOS?

            You should see only NVIDIA GeForce line and not Intel Integrated Graphics, when Optimus is disabled.

    3. Hello, the guide worked great to install the drivers!; However, I use 2 GTX 560ti’s in sli, I know how to enable SLI, but have not done that yet. My issue is after installing the driver, my right monitor is no longer available to my session, eg my right screen is on, black, and has a X for my mouse pointer, and no windows can move to it. In fedora, I can only see my left monitor under displays. Now the fun part, in nvidia-settings, I see both monitors, and they are both configured in xorg.conf properly. I am relatively new to fedora, and have no clue what to do to get my 2nd screen running properly. Thanks for any help in advance, Charles.

        Could you post output of following command:

        
        xrandr
        

        And also your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log example to http://pastebin.com ?

        • Hey I’ll post when I’m back from holiday, however with much tinkering I found that if I use both dvi ports on one card and configure xorg to output to the same x screen with nvidia settings I can get both screens working. I’d prefer sli enabled but think it’s a driver limitation there, but I would still like both cards to output individually vs using only one card. Again many thanks and look for my configs and outputs in a week when I’m back. Have a great holiday!

      • Hi F23user,

        I just tested it on F23, F22, F21 and it’s working normally with SELinux enabled. I updated this guide too.

        • Hi JR
          For me it is not working.
          I was trying separately by:
          enabling selinux -> black screen
          disabling selinux -> graphic environment was recovered;

          and by updating Xserwer to 1.18 and reinstalling nvidia driver -> black screen
          downgrading xserver to 1.17 -> graphic environment was recovered.

          • Hi F23user,

            I tested it again and it’s working normally for me, SELinux enabled and with Xorg 1.18.

            nVidia 358.16 on Fedora 23 Gnome 3.18.2 Kernel 4.2.6

            You tried 358.16 drivers? What display manager / desktop environment you use?

            Could you also post output of following command:

            
            lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"

              • Yes, this might be problem with Plasma + SELinux + Xorg combo.

                SELinux messages found from /var/log/audit/audit.log, so you could check that and try to find nvidia + KDE Plasma related rows.

                Btw. You have nice Linux PC! Overclocked? Water cooled or air?

    4. That’s ok for me.

      I have an issue uninstalling nouveau. Let’s see:

      [[email protected] ~]# dnf remove xorg-x11-drv-nouveau
      Dependencias resueltas.

      Resumen de la transacción

      For some reason in my system, dnf wants to remove libidn, opencv-core, and taglib. Be careful about that. Otherwise you must reinstall it by rpm -i in a chroot terminal through live dvd for example.

      I don’t restored Plymouth yet.

      Cheers!

    5. This is the easiest time I’ve had installing the nvidia driver on fedora. Thanks.

    9. Thanks so much for this guide.
      I had trouble building the nvidia driver, version 352, with the 4.2.6 kernel installed from fedora. What I ended up doing was getting the kernel, version 4.2.6, from kernel.org and building it w/out nouveau configured. Once I had this kerenl up and running ( in run level 3 / multi-user.target ), I could install the 352 driver from nvidia w/out any problems.

    10. I have used the F22 guide with no problem! But when I upgraded to F23, I am having some issues. Everything works great up until I restart my computer for the second time. I can install everything fine and I can restart my computer and it boots up with perfect graphics. It only works that one time. The next time I shutdown and boot up, I get a black screen with a blinking text cursor in the top-left corner of my screen.

      I am using the Dell Inspiron E1705 from 2006 and as far as I know, the Nvidia GO 7800 with an aftermarket processor and HDD.

          • In my BIOS there are two options under Graphics 1]UMA only 2]Optimus
            can I still follow this guide?If not can you guide me to install bumblebee

            Reply
            • Looks like it’s impossible to turn off Intel Graphics / Optimus. UMA Only (Unified Memory Architecture) means normally only Intel Graphics with shared memory (you can of course test this, but I guess that this disable NVIDIA controller).

              And your lspci |grep -E “VGA|3D” looks:

              So then only option is try bumblebee. Check Fedora Bumblebee wiki page, it looks nice guide to get it working.

                So If I’m not wrong this is what the folks who have the following config have to do :

                Fedora 23 installed 64 bit laptop with Optimus technology enabled

                dnf -y --nogpgcheck install http://install.linux.ncsu.edu/pub/yum/itecs/public/bumblebee/fedora23/noarch/bumblebee-release-1.2-1.noarch.rpm
                dnf -y --nogpgcheck install http://install.linux.ncsu.edu/pub/yum/itecs/public/bumblebee-nonfree/fedora23/noarch/bumblebee-nonfree-release-1.2-1.noarch.rpm
                dnf install bumblebee-nvidia bbswitch-dkms VirtualGL.x86_64 VirtualGL.i686 primus.x86_64 primus.i686 kernel-devel

                I opted for “managed” version rather then the “unmanaged” version. Is there any advantage of using “unmanaged” version ?

                Reply
                • Thank you for sharing this.

                  With unmanaged version you can choose your nVidia installer version, if you need example 304.xx or 340.xx version.
