    1. Thanks for keeping this page up. It worked for me – key thing is to read instructions very carefully and think about what you’re doing and allow enough time not to be rushed.

      Here is output from commands:
      $ nvidia-installer -v | grep version
      nvidia-installer: version 390.116 ([email protected])
      $ uname -a
      Linux localhost.localdomain 5.1.15-300.fc30.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Jun 25 14:07:22 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
      $ lspci | grep -E “VGA|3D”

    2. 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
      “`

    5. Thank you for the patched 390 driver for kernel 5.1! It fixed my system which couldn’t handle 5.1 on GT 730 card with plain drivers.

      Will this 5.1 patch work on 5.2 kernel?

    6. But when kernel updated from 5.1.16 to 5.1.17 I had to reinstall patched .run-file. It seems that patched driver cannot handle kernel upgrade.

      • Hi Sergei,

        DKMS should handle it not driver. There was bug with Fedora, dkms run on next boot not in kernel update post tasks, you should run it manually or boot once and then reboot again.

    7. After installations I’ve got errors and drivers are not working…

      My configuration, Fedora 31 kernel 5.1.17

    8. Hello,

      not working even tho I tried like 4 times now. Everything seemed to work but when I change to user level 5 (graphical.target), the only difference to user level 3 is that the many green “[ OK ]” logs appear and stop at “[ OK ] Started PC/SC Smart Card Daemon”. I disable Secure Boot and everytime the same, systemctl get-default returns graphical.target… So I’m stuck between booting and XFCE??

      Here my data after installation on my new Linux gaming laptop: :/

      nvidia-installer: version 430.34

      Linux linux-2.fritz.box 5.1.18-300.fc30.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Jul 15 15:42:34 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      • Hi ArminS,

        Looks like you have nVidia Optimus device? Drivers works, but you can’t run any desktop, you can run cuda apps and do offscreen rendering only.

        Did you read step 1. Before nVidia drivers installation?

    9. Thanks, again!

      [@localhost ~]$ nvidia-installer -v |grep version

    10. To execute the driver file I had to install kernel-devel-‘my kernel’ then cd to the Downloads folder and run sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux…run.

      Cut and pasted your commands and followed your steps exactly. sh command is missing and I had no kernel source so install failed. otherwise went great! Hope this helps.

      • Hi Honor,

        If you really follow the guide (fully update your system and reboot, step 2.4 Make sure that you system is up-to-date and you are running latest kernel) you got right kernel-devel installed on step. 2.5 Install needed dependencies. And if you make your installer executable on step. 2.2 Make nVidia installer executable, then you really don’t need sh command at all.

    11. Excellent, worked like a charm. I was a little worried about regenerating the intramfs because of the luks on lvm, but it worked perfectly. Great guide.
