Fedora 28/27/26 nVidia Drivers Install Guide - Comment Page: 72

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...

    1. I tried to ask this question before but trying again as it did not post after some days.

      Thank you for the guide. I succeeded in installing the Nvidia drivers on a clean Fedora 27 install but when I reboot, I get an error when it tries to start gdm. Just says: Oops! Something went wrong! Please log out and try again.

      But every time, the same thing happens.

      I stopped gdm and used lxdm instead, and that works for starting graphical environment, but now there is no lock screen or switch users.

      Any idea why gdm doesn’t work (but lxdm does)? And why no lock / switch user? What can I look into?

      $ uname -r
      4.17.9-100.fc27.x86_64
      $ ls Downloads/
      NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.77.run
      $ lspci | grep ‘VGA’
      01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP107 [GeForce GTX 1050 Ti] (rev a1)

      Thank you!

        • I can try this.

          Today, I logged in and got this error:

          Unexpected system error
          The system has encountered a problem and recovered.

          Name: kernel-core
          Version: 4.17.9-100.fc27.x86_64
          First Detected: 52 seconds ago
          Reported: cannot be reported

          Your problem seems to be caused by NVIDIA graphics driver

          The NVIDIA graphics drivers are proprietary, and many kernel developers consider this driver to violate the GPL license of the kernel. Fedora does not include proprietary software.

          Fedora Suggests: Consider using the free and Nouveau driver instead or use a graphics adapter from Intel or AMD or any other manufacturer that provides full specifications and/or source code.

          So I will try to upgrade and report back what happens. Hoping this error goes away.

          • I got some time to work on this today and successfully upgraded and then switched display manager back to gdm.

            When I first logged into the graphical environment, there was no switch user in the menu, but it appeared after I locked the screen the first time. Strange.

            But all appears to be working now under F28.

            Thank you.
