Fedora 28/27/26 nVidia Drivers Install Guide - Comment Page: 70

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. All worked. Here’s my outputs:

    3. Apparently the recent kernel update to 4.17.x broke my Fedora 27 install. There also seems to be an issue with DKMS when trying to re-install drivers from shell in multi-user.target mode. Bypassing DKMS installs, but nothing but flashing or black. I guess I’ll have to wait until nVidia puts something out to fix it before I get graphical.target back up.

      • I should have added more information. Here’s what I have installed:

        nvidia-installer: version 396.24 ([email protected])

        Linux franks-laptop 4.17.3-100.fc27.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Jun 26 14:19:03 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

        01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM204M [GeForce GTX 970M] (rev a1)

        Tried a few things getting around the “DKMS module already in tree, cannot be added twice” issue (not an exact quote). The “dkms remove nvidia/396.24” seems to not fail, but still cannot install into DKMS due to same duplication error.

        • Hi Frank,

          Could you post output of following commands:

          dkms status
          
          rpm -qa kernel\* |sort -V

          You can also try first uninstall nvidia drivers using following command:

          nvidia-installer --uninstall

          And then reinstall.

    5. I installed 396.24 on the kernel 4.17 and now i have a blackscreen, i tried to install different versions of drivers:
      – NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.59.run
      – NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.67.run
      – NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-396.24.run

      but still failed. Right now this is my config:

      nvidia-installer -v | grep version
      nvidia-installer: version 396.24 ([email protected]) Thu Apr 26 01:14:04 PDT

      uname -a
      Linux firefly 4.17.3-200.fc28.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Jun 26 14:17:07 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      lspci |grep -E “VGA|3D”

      • Hi KillLo,

        What is your nVidia card exactly? Is it a PNY/Palit 1060 card?

    6. [[email protected] ~]$ nvidia-installer -v | grep version

      Glad to have it working on shiny new fedora 28 install (2018 07 10) with kernel 4.17

      Didn’t work using the rpmfusion non-free method as advertised. This hower did work though I feared the 4.17 kernel would be the issue.
