    5. All nice, but…. how to install these drivers, if I don’t use GRUB ? I’m using rEFInd bootmanager. Yesterday – after trying to follow similar instruction – I’ve experienced rescue mode after reboot. Reconfiguring grub.cfg didn’t help, I had to reinstall whole F29.

      Any clues, please ?

      I know I might temporarily enable grub for installation process, and revert it back once done, but is there another way to disable nouveau ?

      • Hi Martin,

        I think that it might work if you update your new initramfs on refind? If you have not grub2 installed at all, then just try blacklist nouveau on /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf to see if it’s enough to disable nouveau?

      Hi, after installing the nvidia Driver I’ve trouble getting grub to show higher resolution than 1024×768. I’ve tried adding vga= and GFX_MODE. But both didn’t work.

      Has anybody similar problems?

      • Hi Gianluca,

        You have nVidia Optimus device (https://www.geforce.com/hardware/notebook-gpus/geforce-mx150). If you check step 1.2 NVIDIA Optimus Technology then you see that problems might occur, because nVidia Optimus devices is not (fully) supported by nVidia’s Linux drivers. You can only do off screen rendering and run CUDA apps, but can’t run graphical environment. What you can do is check that if you can disable nVidia Optimus from BIOS/UEFI, then it might work.
