    1. Works just fine until a kernel gets upgraded. After that when I reboot X won’t load and I have to reinstall the driver to get X back running after every kernel upgrade.

      $ dkms status
      Error! Could not locate dkms.conf file.
      File: /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/390.42/source/dkms.conf does not exist.

      $ ls -1 /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/

      • Hi,

        If you upgrade kernel from 4.15 to 4.16 you really might have issues. I recommend you to install latest nVidia 390.67 driver and then register dkms again. Btw. you might have some other problem with dkms, because you get error, when you run dkms status.

    2. I followed your instructions step by step and ended up with blank screen after installing the nvdia package and rebooting back to level 5.

        Could you first post output of following commands:

        nvidia-installer -v |grep version
        
        uname -a
        
        lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"

    4. The procedure is failing on fedora 28 fresh install. After the last step in this guide the system can not display GDM anymore. It looks it is trying to restart continuously the GDM, but fails all the time.Now after a while my idea is that it is important to switch to Xorg before performing all the steps described here. I didn’t have time to test yet this idea. If someone has better hypothesis.. let me know.

    7. Thanks for this valuable guide. Like many i used succesfully RPM fusion on F27 but it stopped working the day after F28 was setup (kernel updated from 4.16.3 to 4.16.15)

      Reboot at step 2.4 is likely to be useless unless the kernel is updated.

      • Hi B4s1l3,

        Yes, reboot is useless, but it’s possible, that you have updated kernel earlier, but not running latest kernel.

        You can of course check it with following commands:

        rpm -qa kernel |sort -V |tail -n 1
        
        uname -r

      GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=”rd.lvm.lv=fedora/swap rd.lvm.lv=fedora/root rhgb quiet rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau”

      I tried to copy all commands to the letter and just got black screen?
