    1. Great resource. Thanks a lot for putting this out to make it easier to install nvidia drivers on Fedora.

    2. Worked fine, thank you very much!

      I can confirm that after the latest update to the plymouth bootsplash, removing the boot option ‘rhgb quiet’ from /etc/default/grub is *not* necessary anymore.

    3. Trying to install Nvidia beta driver 415 on Fedora 29 with kernel 4.19 with secure boot of but I still get Unable to load the ‘nvidia-drm’ kernel module error. What should I do? I have a mobile 1060 6GB GDDR5

      • Hi Tiwo,

        I just tested 410.78 and 415.13 with kernel 4.19 and both works normally for me. Are you sure that the secure boot is really disabled?

        Then could you post output of following command:

        lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"

        • I tried 410.78 as well and I get the same problem. Here is the command output:

          00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 630 (rev 04)
          01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP106M [GeForce GTX 1060 Mobile] (rev a1)

          Thanks for the help

    4. Just upgraded from 4.18.18-300.fc29.x86_64 to 4.19.2-300.fc29.x86_64, and the driver 390.87 did not load and the boot halted. Had to back to 4.18.18.

      • Hi Brian,

        You are right, nvidia 390.87 drivers won’t work with kernel 4.19. You can now download patched installer using following command:

        wget https://nvidia.if-not-true-then-false.com/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.87-patched.run

        I just patched it and tested it, please let me know if you have any problems.

        • I rebooted into 4.19 and installed the patched version. It worked! Thanks so much!

        You didn’t tell anything about your problem or your system?

    10. My last comment somehow did not get posted, so here goes nothing again…

      Upgraded kernel to 4.19.2-200.fc28.x86_64, and boot hung at “Starting Switch Root.” I also tried installing versions 390.87-patched and 415.18, both of which had the same issue. Uninstalling the nVidia drivers solved the issue.

      Any thoughts?

      • Hi Jason,

        Kernel 4.19.2 worked for me normally, but try to update kernel 4.19.3 and try installation again? It should work too.

    11. Hi, I have tried your tutorial, but fedora won’t load normally anymore, what should I do please? I am stuck in black screen shell over whole screen. Using fedora 29, gtx 1070, I have done everything correctly expect I have disabled fast boot as least, because I thought I have already done it, could it make some big problem, thank you for your advice.
