    F18-F20: Nvidia guide

    (updated 1/1/14 by Leigh; see post 215)

    Please note if you require help -- provide this basic information!


    Code:
    rpm -qa *\nvidia\*  *\kernel\*|sort;uname -r;lsmod |grep -e nvidia -e nouveau;cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    lspci |grep VGA


    __________________________________________________ _____________________________________

    Howto for the rpmfusion nvidia drivers



    Click here for supported Nvidia cards list


    This is a Three or Four-Step Process. If you don't follow all three steps, your install will fail!



    1. Update the kernel and reboot

    Code:
    su
    yum update kernel\* selinux-policy\*
    reboot
    2. Install the right nvidia driver for your card.


    For GeForce 8, 9, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 & 700 series cards


    Using akmod: This is the best option in my opinion as you don't get any problems when a new kernel is released.

    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ __________
    Extra step for PAE kernel only

    Code:
    su
    yum install  kernel-PAE-devel
    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ___________

    Code:
    su
    yum --nogpgcheck install  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
    yum install akmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686




    Or using kmod (which saves a bit of disk space but will have problems with every kernel update.)
    ( if you have 4Gb of RAM or more you will probably have a PAE kernel [32bit only] so follow the PAE part )

    Code:
    su
    yum --nogpgcheck install  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
    yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686
    If you use a PAE kernel

    Code:
    su
    yum --nogpgcheck install  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
    yum install kmod-nvidia-PAE


    For GeForce 6, 7 series cards


    Using akmod: This is the best option in my opinion as you don't get any problems when a new kernel is released.


    Code:
    su
    yum --nogpgcheck install   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm     http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm     
    yum install akmod-nvidia-304xx xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-304xx-libs.i686



    Or using kmod (which saves a bit of disk space but will have problems with every kernel update.)

    Code:
    su
    yum --nogpgcheck install   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm     http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm    
    yum install kmod-nvidia-304xx xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-304xx-libs.i686
    If you use a PAE kernel


    Code:
    su
    yum --nogpgcheck install   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm     http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
    yum install kmod-nvidia-304xx-PAE
    For GeForce FX cards


    Using akmod: This is the best option in my opinion as you don't get any problems when a new kernel is released.


    Code:
    su
    yum --nogpgcheck install  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm    
    yum install akmod-nvidia-173xx xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-173xx-libs.i686



    Or using kmod (which saves a bit of disk space but will have problems with every kernel update.)

    Code:
    su
    yum --nogpgcheck install  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm   
    yum install kmod-nvidia-173xx xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-173xx-libs.i686
    If you use a PAE kernel


    Code:
    su
    yum --nogpgcheck install  http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
    yum install kmod-nvidia-173xx-PAE
    3. Make sure nouveau is removed from initramfs *Note: Leigh has said that this step is not necessary for F20


    Code:
    su
    mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nouveau.img
    dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

    4. Reboot



    Please note if you require help -- provide this basic information!


    Code:
    rpm -qa *\nvidia\*  *\kernel\*|sort;uname -r;lsmod |grep -e nvidia -e nouveau;cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    lspci |grep VGA

    Re: F17 Nvidia guide

    Admin note:

    Please note that this is an extension of Leigh's normal Nvidia installation guides. For the sake of a shorter thread, and simplicity, I have moved the F16~F17 guide to a thread of their own.

    That being said, please know that this is all still Leigh's fine handiwork, and not my own. I simply opened the thread.

    Re: F17 Nvidia guide

    One issue for efi users....

    --------------------------------------
    Installing : 1:xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-295.53-1.fc17.x86_64
    error opening /boot/grub/grub.cfg for read: No such file or directory
    --------------------------------------

    Because on a efi system that file will not exist...

    The file is

    /boot/efi/EFI/redhat/grub.conf

    And that is grub1 config (uefi defaults to grub1..)

    What changes are made to grub during the install?
    anyone know what changes I should do ?

    Re: F17 Nvidia guide

    I don't know how much, if any, help this might provide, but you can see what the install/uninstall scripts are doing associated with the xorg-x11-drv-nvidia rpm package. I ran it on my F16 /w kmod-nvidia installed and there is no attempt to check for a /boot/efi/EFI/redhat/grub.conf flle in the postinstall scriptlet.
    Code:
    rpm -q --scripts xorg-x11-drv-nvidia
    Ahh...right. If the xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-295.53-1.fc17.x86_64.rpm package isn't installed (due to that error), then use:
    Code:
    rpm -qp --scripts xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-295.53-1.fc17.x86_64.rpm

    Please file a bug report against xorg-x11-drv-nvidia at rpmfusion.

    F17 with nVidia GT630M

    Hi,

    I've just purchased a new laptop (Asus N53SM) with nVidia GT630M. Though Asus' advertising literature said nothing about this, it seems as though it is an Optimus setup, with an Intel chip controlling the display.

    I am having trouble installing the nVidia drivers, and I suspect that is why. After installing akmod-nvidia and xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686, at the next reboot Fedora 17 hangs at "[OK] Started Display Manager". It is a fresh [updated] installation.

    Has anyone else had this issue? Is there a way around it? Or is this problem unrelated to the Optimus setup?

    Code:
    [root ~]# lspci |grep -i VGA
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 0de9 (rev a1)
    Thanks!

    AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0

    Thanks Dan fo continuing this thread.

    I have followed the instructions, as well as including the BusID and a CustomEDID, but now I am getting "AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0" in my Xorg logs without sadly any error markers (EE). Can anyone spot something that I've done wrong or overlooked?
