      • Thanks Dirk,

        Problem is rhgb kernel parameter. I guess this is fixed soon. I can get same xorg error:

        (EE) NVIDIA(0): Failing initialization of X screen 0
        (II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"

        You can use 410.73 drivers. Your card should be supported!

          • dkms, should be supported also. Did you installed all dependencies on step 2.5 and selected “yes” on step 2.8.3?

                Oh, now I see make is not anymore installed as dependency on step. 2.5. Thanks, I added it to install line too.

        • There are chances that his GT 730 is based on a Fermi GPU which are now maintained through an older driver branch just for bug and security fixes.
          I think than the latest version for Fermi GPUs is 410.66

    4. Looking through NVIDIA documentation I found a more “elegant” way.
      I’ve installed the required packages (only kernel-devel was missing).
      Then I just created a new configuration file (since is advised to not modify existing ones) in /etc/modprobe.d/ with this two line:
      blacklist nouveau
      options nouveau modeset=0

      and suddenly I rebuild initramfs as you described, which pick up the module loader configuration file mentioned above, preventing Nouveau from loading and performing a kernel modeset.

      Both ways (yours and mine) filed the firs time because the package “elfutils-libelf-devel” was not installed, luckily the nvidia-installer log reported that the cause was the missing package so was easy to solve.

      • Hi Stefano,

        I know that here is a few not mandatory steps, but I have used several years to modify this guide and used my own experiences and users feedback. This is what it currently is.

      • Hi Rokuzov,

        Did you get nVidia drivers installed and could use graphical environments? Or where you get this message box?

    6. Hi JR,

      thanks for the detailed instructions.

      Recently I had to uninstall the Nvidia and re-enable nouveau drivers on a Fedora 28 machine. To make it work again I had to reinstall the libglvnd* packages in step 5.12 as well.

    10. I was able to install the drivers on fedora 29 from the rpm fusion repo (by enabled in software centre repo menu) and then installing the driver by the commandxorg-x11-drv-nvidia.x86_64. That was still broken so I tried these packages nvidia-modprobe.x86_64 and nvidia-persistenced.x86_64 then I run “sudo dracut -f” and now I can boot into gnome without gdm locking up or removing the “rhgb” parameter . I don’t know which packege fixed this, it wasn’t dracut. Hope this helps, worked on gtx 970.

      • Hi SomeGrunt,

        This guides point is not solve only rhgb problem, but just to be alternative way to install nVidia drivers stable, beta, legacy or whatever version you wish. It’s something what you can’t get from any repo.

      • DKMS broken though, says it can’t find 410.73 conf file, and now can’t boot into OS after 4.18.18 kernel update. Tried running the installer again in multi-user and got no errors, but dkms status still returns an error.

        Any help would be greatly appreciated.
