    1. Hi,

      I’m on fedora 30, progressing through the 5.1, 5.2 and now 5.3 kernels. I’ve been using the patched (from this site) 340.107 driver. This has worked well for the 5.1 and 5.2 kernel versions, but fails to build for the 5.3 kernel. What to do?

      • Hi Peter,

        Any additional info about your system, graphics card and driver version?

    3. I upgraded from Fedora 29 to Fedora 30 5.2.18-200 and installed the nvidia driver and it worked. Then after an auto-install of 5.3.6-200, the driver stopped working and I can’t get past the Dell splash screen. A similar thing happened with Fedora 29 which is why I upgraded to 30.

      • Hi Mitch,

        What nvidia driver version you use? Do you use dkms for building new kernel modules? If not then you should enable it using installer or you really need build it manually for every kernel.

    7. Nvidia version 340 in Fedora 30 with any kernel version above 5.3 doesn’t compile anymore. Any chance to have it fixed? It up to Nvidia do a patch again?

    9. Hey guys, I followed the guide and successfully installed Nvidia 390.129 on my fedora 30 kernel 5.3.7.

      The problem is that ok next reboot, the boot is stuck at a certain point (Started Gnome Display) and I don’t know why and don’t know what to do.

        Could you post output of following command:

        lspci |grep -E "VGA|3D"

    10. I had a problem in that I could not reboot into level 3. I think this is because I am running Fedora 30 Server edition and the boot line in Grub is entirely different that the boot line for Fedora 30. I could not figure out how to get it to boot to level 3. I have another Linux distro on my computer so I was able to mount the partition containing Fedora and undo all of the changes made to the files. Then I had to perform a recovery with the original installation thumb drive and get back into the system with the nouveau driver. Perhaps you warn server edition users. Is there a work around?

      • Hi Floyd,

        Actually Fedora 30 Server edition is not different than Fedora 30 Workstation (or any other Fedora spin). Server edition actually should boot directly runlevel 3 without any graphical environment. If you have installed desktop (Gnome-desktop, KDE etc.), then everything should work as described and you can boot runlevel 3 and runlevel 5 normally.

        For clarification runlevel 3 is console without any graphical and runlevel 5 is desktop or some other graphical environment.

        You can use Grub parameters 3 and 5 or change runlevel using systemctl set-default multi-user.target and systemctl set-default graphical.target commands.

    12. I’ve followed instructions, installed diver which seems to work but but Nvidia X server settings doesn’t – it’s strange because it’s not in apps but if I go to software packages app it shows it’s installed.. but when I press “run” nothing happens , any idea what went wrong ?

      nvidia-installer -v |grep version
      nvidia-installer: version 430.50

      uname -a

        Just run command nvidia-settings as normal user.

    13. Hello I could follow the steps, but in the end after the last reboot the system starts and is marked in the middle of the start more precisely after “[OK] Started WPA supplicant.” or after “[OK] Started CUPS Scheduler.” I can’t find a solution. The controller is 390.129.
      thank you

    14. I had to use the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.87-patched-kernel-4.20.run version to get it past the black screen lockup last time. Is there a 5.3 patch available? I also cannot get dkrm to work either. I just say No at this point. Should that be working?

      Linux server1.com 5.3.6-100.fc29.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Oct 14 21:48:12 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux.

      Fedora release 29.

      Thank you.

      • Hi Jim,

        Simply download newest nVidia 390.xx driver, current version is 390.132. Should work without any patches.

        Is this laptop or desktop computer? Is it possible to disable Intel graphics?
