    3. For the libglvnd error, libgl-devel is not a package. The correct package is libGL-devel. Small but necessary.

      Thanks for the guide though, big help!

      • Hi Mike,

        Thanks, actually package name was wrong libgl-devel should be libglvnd-devel, but not libGL-devel, because Fedora doesn’t have libGL-devel or libgl-devel packages, check:

        dnf list libgl-devel libGL-devel libglvnd-devel
        Available Packages
        libglvnd-devel.i686                     1:1.0.0-1.fc27                   updates
        libglvnd-devel.x86_64                   1:1.0.0-1.fc27                   updates

      • Some errors reports during 4.16.4 kernel boot:

      • Hi Kirill,

        That’s true and corrected on guide.

        So following packages should work normally with Fedora 28/27/26 and kernel 4.16:
        nVidia 396.18 BETA
        nVidia 390.48 patched
        nVidia 340.106 patched

    4. thanks a lot for the guides, would probably have given up on Linux by now if it weren’t for you ;)

      been having issues with the drivers on F27 since 4.15.16 kernel update. 390.48 wouldn’t load Xorg, so I installed the 396.18 beta on 4.15.17. I then updated the kernel to 4.16.3, and again I couldn’t boot into Xorg. I reinstalled 396.18 again, and it’s fine for now.

      I understand the 390.48 needed a kernel patch, but the 396.18 only worked with 4.16.3 after I reinstalled the driver. Any idea what the issue might be? is it DKMS related? I would hate to reinstall the Nvidia driver with every kernel update…

      my system is F27 x64 BIOS

      thanks in advance!

      • Hi siaul,

        This problems sounds like dkms related, could you post output of following command:

        dkms status
        Reply
        • Error! Could not locate dkms.conf file.
          File: /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/390.25/source/dkms.conf does not exist.

          You’re right. Looks like it’s pointing to the old directory instead of the current 396.18, which exists.

    5. I’m having some trouble with even the latest beta driver on the latest kernel. The error regards the inability to load the nvidia-drm module. Here are my details:

      Machine: Dell XPS 15 9560
      Firmware: 1.7.1
      Secure Boot: disabled in BIOS
      Boot method: UEFI
      OS: Fedora 27
      Nvidia Driver version: 396.18 Beta
      Kernel version: 4.16.3-200.fc27.x86_64

      nvidia-installer.log
      https://pastebin.com/DjxcFCFC

      I did try to install the 390.48 and ran into the same issue (cannot load nvidia-drm module), uninstalled it, and reversed the post changes. This log is for the second attempt to install 396.18 (that’s why it complains about the driver already being installed). I’ve since uninstalled it and reversed the post changes, so in theory I should have a fresh start to try again.

      Would appreciate any guidance for further steps to try. Thanks!

    7. Hi JR,

      I had an issue while installing the drivers I got the error:
      Unable to load the ‘nvidia-drm’ kernel module

      could it be because my system uses Nvidia Optimus?

      system specs:
      -Dell Inspiron 15 7000
      -model 7577
      -graphics: GTX1060

      • Hi mo,

        Could you post output of following command:

        lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"

        It should tell us, do you have nVidia Optimus card.

      • Hi maithanhan,

        This might be hardware error, is this card working normally with earlier kernels or other operating systems?

        Could you first post your xorg log and output of following command:

        lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"

    11. I got a problem with GPL license when run the installer. Could you help me?

      • Hi andys0975,

        First problem is that you are using debug kernel?

        Check your uname -a output:

        Linux localhost.localdomain 4.16.6-302.fc28.x86_64+debug #1 SMP Tue May 1 23:10:27 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

        Then next problem is nVidia Optimus device? Or is it possible to disable Intel Graphics from BIOS/UEFI?

        • ya I use debug version kernel
          Is that an important problem?

          Mine is Nvidia Optimus, however I can install properly on previous kernels version, so I don’t think it’s an important problem?

          Reply
          • OMG You’re damn right
            The debug kernel can’t install
            but normal kernel can do even need not to close X window
            Thank you for pointing the blind spot !
            Note that I use rc kernel 4.17.0.rc3 and it works

    12. Nvidia drivers before 396.18 (currently beta) are incompatible with fedora and kernel 4.16

    14. Fedora 28 is out.But nvidia-340.106 patched driver worked at a low level.For example,in Kde Plasma desktop,The driver installation may broken libOpenCl.so.1 file,this make play of videos failed.Besides this,desktop effects don’t work(Alt+TAB,ctrl+F11) except desktop transparent.
