    4. Hi everyone,

      I installed successfully the nvidia 430.26 (geforce MX150) at the intel core i7 8550u using Fedora 30 (without dkms). When I put “nvidia-installer -v”, is shown:
      “nvidia-installer: version 430.26
      The NVIDIA Software Installer for Unix/Linux.
      This program is used to install, upgrade and uninstall The NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver Set for Linux-x86_64.”

      If I put “lspci |grep -E “VGA|3D”, I have:
      “00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation UHD Graphics 620 (rev 07)
      01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP108M [GeForce MX150] (rev a1)”

      But at the settings (Details), at Graphics, there is “Intel® UHD Graphics 620 (Kabylake GT2)”. How can I set GeForce there? And nvidia-settings doesn’t work (I think due to wayland, is it a problem?), the GeForce board is working?

      Thanks a lot.

      • Hi Danilo,

        Is this nVidia Optimus device? Check step. 1.2 nVidia Optimus.

        Could you post output of following command:

        lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"

    6. It’s the third time I installed drivers for my GTX 1060 with your guide. Thank you so much!

    7. Tried to install latest LT-driver with

      # ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-430.26.run

      and got the error:
      ——–
      FATAL: modpost: GPL-incompatible module nvidia.ko uses GPL-only symbol ‘mutex_destroy’
      ——–

      My configuration (Fedora 31) :
      # uname -r
      5.2.0-0.rc6.git1.1.fc31.x86_64

      nvidia-installer: version 430.26

      lspci |egrep -i VGA
      01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM206 [GeForce GTX 960] (rev a1)

    8. I also tried to set the variable CONFIG_DEBUG_MUTEXES to ‘N’ (no) in the kernel sources:

      /usr/src/kernels/5.2.0-0.rc6.git1.1.fc31.x86_64/.config
      and
      /usr/src/kernels/5.2.0-0.rc6.git1.1.fc31.x86_64/include/config/auto.conf

      Again – no luck!

      In the nvidia-installer.log it reads:
      ————-
      FATAL: modpost: GPL-incompatible module nvidia.ko uses GPL-only symbol ‘mutex_destroy’
      make[2]: *** [scripts/Makefile.modpost:91: __modpost] Error 1
      make[2]: Target ‘_modpost’ not remade because of errors.
      make[1]: *** [Makefile:1603: modules] Error 2
      make[1]: Leaving directory ‘/usr/src/kernels/5.2.0-0.rc6.git1.1.fc31.x86_64’
      make: *** [Makefile:81: modules] Error 2
      ERROR: The nvidia kernel module was not created.

    9. 2.6.2.
      SED could be used (Replacing last ” with new string):
      “`
      grep -m 1 GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX /etc/sysconfig/grub | sed -i ‘s/”$/ rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau”/’ /etc/sysconfig/grub
      “`
