      • Hi,

        in kernel 4.20 the driver doesn’t work…..

        • Hi Moyson,

          I haven’t tested kernel 4.20 yet, but it’s normally that it takes while when nVidia releases new versions for next kernel. You can also try some patches for kernel 4.20, this might work https://ptpb.pw/xg4x

      DKMS broken so needed to delete old driver folder and kernel modules in /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/, wonder if it’s because I booted into multi-user after updating system via terminal.

      Also I’ve been seeing this error during kernel updates whether via terminal or regular reboot:
      warning: file /lib/modules/4.19.3-300.fc29.x86_64/updates: remove failed: No such file or directory

      Current kernels installed are 4.19.4, 4.19.5 and 4.19.6, debating deleting the older ones.

      • Deleted the folders as the contents were all nvidia-related. Think it might be related to DKMS but can’t say for usre.

      • Hi Slawek,

        First, you are running very old kernel? Did you really followed this guide? Check step 2.4 Make sure that you system is up-to-date and you are running latest kernel, later commands fails if you are running wrong kernel.

        Then totally different problem might be your nVidia Optimus device GeForce GTX 960M. If you read step 1.2 NVIDIA Optimus Technology then you should know that too. Some higher end systems (where you can disable nVidia Optimus technology) this will work, but normally nVidia Optimus devices not work. You can install drivers successfully and run CUDA apps and do other offscreen rendering, but any graphical environment is not supported, more info from: http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/410.78/README/optimus.html

    13. Hello again; I have LUKS encryption on my hard drive, and I think the prompt for the passphrase breaks the steps you describe – the grub2 menu displays with the new font and resolution from grub, but it flips back to text mode to ask for the encryption passphrase. The shutdown screen doesn’t display either. Apart from the system details in my post earlier today, what other info would help?
