    1. Hi,

      great and useful webpage (thanks for it)

      How long before a .run file (for 340.107 for me) usable with the new linux kernel 5.x ?

        • Hi Jr,

          I just managed to follow all instructions and get the NVidia patched driver working correctly with kernel 5.0. It was working great, I rebooted a couple of times. After this I went and installed some basic packages (like vim) and I restarted the computer and it froze on fedora login screen. It says that it is falling back to nouveau because the NVidia driver failed to load which won’t work because I uninstalled nouveau in one of the steps above and the entire system hangs.

          What can I do to solve this issue?

          Thanks

    3. JR,

      Many thanks for your helpful and clear explanations updated on April 2, 2019.

      On Fedora 29 it appears that the new core 5.0.5 do not match with 410.xx NVIDIA driver to run X window (by startx) and require 418.xx drivers. Reverse side, old kernel 4.20 doesn’t run with new 418.xx driver

      Thanks to you much, I updated my config without any issue on the first run !

      My config is the following one :

      • Hi Paul,

        Both versions 410.xx and 418.xx should be working with kernel 5.0.x. After all nice to hear that you got it working!

    4. This worked with my new HP desktop with Quadro P400! (I’ve used versions of this guide before…)

      However, I don’t see 4k modes (or any over 1920×1080) like I did on my old quadro 2000 machine, or that I saw on this machine with the default drivers from F29.

      Worse: after a reboot, I see no graphics until I unplug and replug the cable (mDP – I also tried a mDP->HDMI cable; same problem.)

      Interestingly, the edid doesn’t show >1920×1080. Including when I pull it on the machine showing 1440 video! Monitor is Dell P2715Q.

      • And now it did come up without replug with a copy of the “good” xorg.conf from the other F29 machine — but still 1920×1080 max.

    5. Is there a patched version for 390.87 for kernel 5?

      Reply
      • Bump! I too need a patch for the 390.87 for kernel 5.

        Reply
        • Hi Sam and Tobias,

          No patched 390.87 for kernel 5. Use latest version nVidia 390.116 instead which works without any patch.

    6. Oh my god, this is insanity.

      Am i really forced to do this? It’s almost as worse as try and hit modelines in the good old 90s. But now it’s 25 years later.

    8. Everything worked as explained but… I needed to press “e” on the grub boot screen after “Reboot to runlevel3” section and put “nodemoset”, without quotes, after …rgbh quiet… and press “crt+x” to start. I got a black screen if I didn’t do that.

    10. Well, I just migrated from Linux Mint to Fedora 29 (I am a bit sick of Cinnamon Desktop, and wanted to try Plasma 5). However, I had never used Fedora (or another “Red Hat Distro” before, so I was completely lost trying to install my GPU.

      Thanks to your guide, things are running nice and smooth here, so all my gratitude to you. And, as you asked, here we go:
