    2. Thanks! works great! had to re do this when upgrading from fedora 26 -> 28. (old driver was version 396.24)

      • Hi Max,

        Yes, this is normally needed when you do this style upgrades, because nVidia 396.24, is not anymore compatible with latest kernels. Nice to hear that you got it working!

      A very good instruction describing step by step what to do and in what order. But in my case I had to use the option “–no-cc-version-check” to compile the NVIDIA kernel module. And the guide is missing information that after installing NVIDIA / removing NOUVEAU drivers, you will not be able to use Wayland instead of X.

      • Hi PK,

        It’s always temporary, if you need --no-cc-version-check, and normally it’s fixed on next kernel build. This could happen, when you got updated gcc, but your kernel is still build with older version. Kernel 4.18.15 works without problems.

        I could add this to guide, but I think that everyone knows that there is no wayland support with NVIDIA Drivers.

        • Thank for your response.

          I took the next step, I tried to restore Plymouth according to the instruction.
          There were no errors during completing the procedure.
          Everything seemed to be OK, but the result was half-done.
          The resolution of the text console is correct, as it should be.
          The shutdown screen displays correctly.
          But the splash screen on boot has not changed. They are still three small squares that appeared after installing nVidia driver. I tried with different themes, the result was the same. I added an entry GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”splash”, nothing has changed.

          It is Fedora 28 Workstation fresh install. My GRUB config looks like below:

          GRUB_TIMEOUT=5
          GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=”$(sed ‘s, release .*$,,g’ /etc/system-release)”
          GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
          GRUB_DISABLE_SUBMENU=true
          #GRUB_TERMINAL_OUTPUT=”console”
          GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=”… rhgb quiet rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau”
          GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY=”true”

          GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=”keep”
          GRUB_VIDEO_BACKEND=”vbe”
          GRUB_TERMINAL_OUTPUT=”gfxterm”
          GRUB_FONT_PATH=”/boot/grub2/fonts/unicode.pf2″
          GRUB_GFXMODE=”1920x1200x24″
          GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”splash”

    4. I got a message saying GT 610 no longer supported. Only supported through NVIDIA 390.xx legacy drivers
      Is this correct?

      Reply
    5. The 410.66 driver says my GT610 is not supported.

      Reply
        • Thanks for the reply. So is the fix here to get a new card or be forced to stay on the Linux kernel compatible with the older NVIDIA drivers?

          Reply
          • Hi Sam,

            I said it bit wrong. Your nVidia card is fully supported by older drivers. As long as this is the case, you can use your nVidia card with old drivers and with new kernels. So currently 390.xx drivers should work with the latest kernel and your nVidia card.

            Reply
            • Yeah, I think I tried to run the old driver against the new kernel but got an error. I will go back and see what the issue was. I know gcc version was updated which was the start of my issues….

              • Just got back to investigating further..
                My card is supported going by the link you provided.

                GeForce GT 610 0DE7 C

                I have logged with NVIDIA

                  Yes, you can find it under following text:

                  Below are the legacy GPUs that are no longer supported in the unified driver. These GPUs will continue to be maintained through the special legacy NVIDIA GPU driver releases.

                  The 390.xx driver supports the following set of GPUs:

                  • Ah ok, must have missed that. Thanks

    6. Thanks for your detailed instructions. I am running Fedora 28 with a GTX 1060 and after installing the drivers boot no longer works for *any* kernel.

      Considering to forget it and install windows, as much as I hate it, or at least a version of linux which is compatible with modern GPUs.

      • Hi James,

        For debugging, could you post output of following command first:

        lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"

        And actually Fedora is compatible with your card (any other modern GPUs) just boot Fedora and use it, right? One of the primary aims of the Fedora Project is to provide an open operating system that can be freely distributed and modified by anyone, wherever they are in the world. So nVidia proprietary drivers can’t be included. This is matter of principle, not compatibility issue at all.

    7. Hi, since kernel 4.18.x i’m having trouble at boot time: black screen after login and nothing happens.
      Older kernel are Ok (4.16).
      i tried the latest nvidia 410.66 and some older too.
      I don’t know how to fix the problem.

      • Hi Cristian,

        Do you see any errors on your Xorg.log? Could you test some other desktop, than Gnome, just to see that problem is Gnome not anything else?

    8. I wrote a long post about installing the Nvidia drivers and CODA Toolkit on Fedora 28 with a Titan Xp. Whatever I do, I get blocked. Please tell me how to contact you.

    9. Hi,

      I was able to install the driver, graphical runlevel works, everything seems to be fine.

      Yet there is one BUT:

      # nvidia-settings

      ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system

      Is this known issue? Anything I can do about it?

      Thanks!

        Could you first post output of following commands:

        uname -a
        
        lsmod |grep nvidia
        
        lsmod |grep nouveau

    10. Worked great!

    11. Worked without any problems.

    12. Broke the system…ran updates, upgraded to 29, now I get black screen after login

    13. Update: So my problem was not reviewing instructions for Fedora 29 (installing an alternative display manager before running updates).

      nvidia-installer: version 410.73
      Linux localhost.localdomain 4.18.16-300.fc29.x86_64 #1 SMP Sat Oct 20 23:24:08 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      Somewhere along the line I messed up DKMS but seems to be normal now, I think?

      # ls /var/lib/dkms/nvidia
      410.73 kernel-4.18.16-300.fc29.x86_64-x86_64

      # ls /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/410.73
      4.18.16-200.fc28.x86_64 4.18.16-300.fc29.x86_64 source

      # ls /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/kernel-4.18.16-300.fc29.x86_64-x86_64
      log module

      # dkms status
      nvidia, 410.73, 4.18.16-300.fc29.x86_64, x86_64: installed

      Does this output mean dkms will help with kernel updates? I was initially getting this response:
      # dkms status
      nvidia, 410.73, 4.18.16-300.fc29.x86_64, x86_64: installed (WARNING! Diff between built and installed module!) (WARNING! Diff between built and installed module!) (WARNING! Diff between built and installed module!)

    14. Thanks for the instructions. It worked for me, except I needed to install make to get the driver installed. Also it seems like GDM is working fine for me (I didn’t change my display manager at all and I am not having any problems)

      Reply
      • Hi Mike,

        Excellent to hear that you got everything working. Actually make should be installed on step. 2.5, if you install all dependencies!

    15. Hello! Today, Fedora 29 released. Is GLvnd works on it? I want to start X-Server on my Intel GPU, then start a game on NVIDIA
