    1. After upgrading to Fedora 30, 5.2.13 kernel (HP-HDX-18 laptop, GetForce 130M) 340.107 driver stops working and attempts either to uninstall or re-install it were aborted with SIGBUS error. Problem was solved by deleting all files/directories/links which have “340.107” in their name followed by installation the driver.

      • Unfortunately, this is not the end of the story. The system booted smoothly only once. After second boot, it didn’t reach the video driver loading, but ended with the following message:
        Generating “/run/initramfs/rdsosreport.txt”

        *Entering rescue mode. Exit the shell to continue.
        Type “journalctl” to view system logs.
        You might want to save Generating “/run/initramfs/rdsosreport.txt” to a USB stick or /boot after mounting them and attach it to a bug report.*
        So, if you want to be a Linux expert, just install Fedora. After long hours spent on forums to figure out how to deal with multiple Fedora bugs, you will become a real expert … It’s a pity, because long ago, perhaps until the advent of Gnome 3, Fedora was supported by a highly professional team.
        For me, bye Fedora.

        • Good to know I am not the only one to run into the dracut fail. Not sure if this stems from Fedora’s move to BLS ( fedoramagazine.org/setting-kernel-command-line-arguments-with-fedora-30 )and issues using grub2-makecfg in 30 or for me a combination of BLS, grub2 and use of raid for /. If I completed step 2.6.5 Generate initramfs, upon reboot I found that had to add rd.auto as kernel arg to successfully boot since it could no longer find / partition.

          • Hi Daniel and Vasily,

            This is actually interesting change what I have missed totally, because I don’t have had any problems with grub2-mkconfig. Do you use Legacy BIOS?

            So yes you can use grubby and you can also disable BLS changing /etc/sysconfig/grub GRUB_ENABLE_BLSCFG=true to GRUB_ENABLE_BLSCFG=false and install grubby-deprecated package.

    2. Thanks a lot, god work !

    3. Worked for #fc29 #zfsonlinux #zfsonroot, thx.

      Thanks again for the great guide!

    5. I just wanted to thank you for the well put together guide, and report back my output as requested at the beginning of the article. I was successful and, in my case at least, am now enjoying true high refresh rates (165Hz and 144Hz) on the desktop! That is something I thought I would miss coming from Windows 10.

      $ nvidia-installer -v | grep version
      nvidia-installer: version 430.50 (that’s the version of the driver I downloaded, works fine)

      $ uname -a
      Linux localhost.localdomain 5.2.16-200.fc30.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Sep 19 16:14:04 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

      $ lspci | grep -E “VGA|3D”
      01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP104 [GeForce GTX 1070] (rev a1)

      My hardware:
      Intel i7-8700K
      NVIDIA GTX 1070
      Using 2 2560 x 1440 (16:9) @ 165Hz Dell Monitors (Dell S2417DG)
      + 1 2560 x 1440 (16:9) 144Hz Dell Monitor (Dell S2417DG) (other two allow overclocking to 165Hz)
      4 x 8GB 2333 MHz DDR4
      Various disks (system disk is SATA SSD 2.5″)
      EVGA Z370 Motherboard
      Using ethernet, no wifi hardware nor bluetooth

      This was done on a fresh Fedora 30 install, with default settings (using GNOME, and I guess x.org or whatever is the default) with all packages up to date and latest kernel.

      The only issue I have is that GNOME seems not to remember display prefs at boot. After boot, my display layout is off (vertical monitor is horizontal, displays are out of order). After logon, I have a few screen flickers and then my displays go to the configured (desired) layout. Subsequent screen-locks keep my display layout settings properly, but each reboot brings the out-of-order displays at first logon.

      I understand my problem has nothing to do with your guide, I’m just sharing and I hope it is informative. On the other hand, if you happen to know of somewhere I could get information about fixing that issue, I would appreciate it if you would drop a link.

      Thanks again!

      A linux noob

      • I thought it would be pertinent to add that I am using DisplayPort across the board with my displays. I was unable to get access to high refresh rates (above 60Hz) using HDMI connected to the NVIDIA card.

    6. It fails to me, at graphics appear llvmpipe and I can not run nvidia-x-sever-settings

    7. Everything seemed good to go, fedora 30, 5.2, Nvidia 340.107 patched for 5.1+, login and black screen…. Have tried gdm and lightdm. Same result using rpm fusion method. Frustrated beyond belief at this point. Nouveau flashes playing video.

      • Hi Sam,

        Could you post output of following command:

        lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"
    8. It would be helpful to include the filename for step 5.8 ‘Remove rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau’ per the installation instructions.


      5.8 Edit /etc/sysconfig/grub

      Remove rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau

      • Thanks c, added to guide!

    10. Hi,
      I have problem after suspend the PC; after waking up, the screen will blur.
      Please help me

      Fedora 30, Gnome 3.32.1, GeForce GT 730

      • I have the same problem, after suspend the laptop is locked to the login screen.

        On Dell XPS 9570

    11. Nice, Its work fine ! Great Job on my Fedora 30 !

    12. Thank you for the perfect how to. I had zero issues with your information. BTW…
      I used the auto signing from nvidia readme

      “sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-430.40.run -s \
      –module-signing-secret-key=/path/to/signing.key \


      • Hi gbg,

        Excellent, nice to hear that everything worked and thanks for sharing this info.

    13. worked like a charm, thanx a lot

      nvidia-installer: version 430.50

    14. Boot to black screen after updating from a 5.2 to a 5.3 kernel with nvidia drivers 340.107. The patch does work perfectly for a 5.2 kernel but is does not work anymore for a 5.3 kernel. Please can anyone give me some pointers how to fix this?

      • Hi Peter,

        Just updated guide and added patched 340.107, check here. Also tested with Fedora 31.

        • Thanks JR,

          Downloaded the new patched 340.107 version.
          No problems with install.
          Fedora 30 up and running with kernel 5.3.7 and nvidia drivers 340.107.
