    Re: F18-F20: Nvidia guide

    I edited the file that was there so I assume I don't have the original. So you're saying delete the file (or rename it to something else) and reboot? As I said, the monitor I have seems to need the correct resolution sent to it and I guess it doesn't send over a valid EDID so I'm guessing xorg.conf needs to have the correct settings for this monitor.

    If no one knows what might be wrong with my setup I was hoping there would be some setting I could enable such that I can find out what output the video card was generating when going into graphics mode and that could be stored in some file so that I can inspect it after going back into text mode. I guess nothing like that exists?

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Re: F18-F20: Nvidia guide

    I gave it up to install nvidia on fed 20.
    In short term: Installed nvdidia 320 from rawhide repo with apper, removed nouveau
    even with apper. Then reboot, system locked up. Sad to use this outdated driver
    where no 3d functionality is given.

    I know that I have a nvidia geforce 840M in my laptop but I could'nt find it in the list of supported drivers.
    Does this mean that my laptop can not run with any nvidia proprietary/free drivers?
    I'm still a little confused as to what I should install...

    Re: F18-F20: Nvidia guide

    Well I am finally over to the dark side and installed the proprietary Nvidia driver.
    The installation was considerably more annoying than nouveau (which works out of the box) but after getting the right packages, xorg configuration, desktop manager (GDM) configuration and desktop environment configuration (took some time to figure out it actually supports the control center screen configurator), it works well.

    What made me install it was that Serious Sam 3 from Steam crashed with nouveau, which I believe is caused by mesa.
    I tried mesa-10-3 from F21 and the latest kernel (3.17) from F21 (which required some force) and the symptoms stayed the same (at the intro movie when the voice over says "... Then a startling discovery was ma-" it hangs and dmesg shows some nouveau messages like channel fail and recovering, but it didn't crash the system. With Nvidia the same hang is apparent but it is a very short one and obviously it doesn't crash).
    The reason I suspect mesa is that radeon seems to be hit by the same bug: https://www.libreoffice.org/bugzilla...g.cgi?id=83416).

    I did need the i668 libs or OpenGL didn't work right (which inhibited GDM and Gnome-Shell from functioning).

    Exclamation Re: F18-F20: Nvidia guide

    Hello.

    I just followed the instructions described on this list but now I'm unable to get a graphical enviroment, all I get after boot is the Plymouth logo and after that, I get a black screen with withe letters that says:

    *ERROR* uncleared pch fifo underrun on pch transcoder A
    *ERROR* PCH transcoder A FIFO underrun

    the problem occured after I followed the guide and made the reboot

    I'm not even able to acces with "Fedira Rescue"

    Also, I'm not able to stop an x server by clicking "Alt + F2", I've tried all the possible F keys and I onlly get a black screen, no text, not anything.

    My graphical card is an NVIDIA GT 740m, I used the akmod 304 version and also, the xorg 304 version, as my card is supported by this driver.

    How would I be able to uninstall akmod-nivida and xorg package?
    Or how can I repair it?

    I hope you can help me, I really need my computer for work and school.

    Thanks in advance

    I was able to acces without UI, I uninstalled the Nvidia drivers listed here but I'm still unable to install the drivers, currently running nouveau.

    Re: F18-F20: Nvidia guide

    From what I can see, I'd try the standard drivers, not the 304 version. No guarantees, but at least you now know how to uninstall and revert to nouveau if that doesn't work.

    Re: F18-F20: Nvidia guide

    Hi All,

    I am trying to install the nVidia drivers for my GeForce GTX 750 TI card in F21.

    I originally the instructions on the first page of this thread and had no success, I then saw the instructions in post #286, after following these instructions I still had no success.

    I seem to bounce between being able to boot but not being able to reach a login screen (I end up at a screen that displays status information about the boot sequence) and having the boot fail and then being dumped into the emergency console.

    If I edit the grub boot command (by pressing 'e' in the grub boot menu) and scroll down to the line with 'linuxefi', putting a 3 at the end of that line then pressing F10 will get me to a tty login terminal without error.

    Although I have a 700 series card, I decided I would install kernel-devel as was suggested for the Series 6/7 cards (figured why not).

    Attached is the output from all of the commands that post #286 asks for. Along with a couple of other outputs (dmesg, journalctl, systemctl, /var/log/Xorg.0.log, and startx).

    One thing that I noticed is that I had no /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but I had a /etc/X11/nvidia-xorg.conf. I tried copying nvidia-xorg.conf to xorg.conf. No luck though. As you will see, this file is pretty bare (is this how it is supposed to be?).

    I had issues uploading files directly to this post, so I uploaded them to dropbox instead and here is the link for them. There is also a script file there (debugCommands.sh) that shows how each of the files was generated.

    Best Regards
    Bidski

    Hey Bob, I realized what my problem was, I needed Bumblebee, and now it works pretty good!!

    Re: F18-F20: Nvidia guide

    Has it been suggested that a step about running nvidia-xconfic might be added, in case everything else has been done properly and there's still no x-server?
    Just mentioning it, because I know there have been a couple times where I reran every step to make sure it's setup properly, checked on mode-setting, checked this and that, only to find that my problem was fixed magically and beautifully by a simple execution of nvidia-xconfig.

    RPM Fusion has noted the GeForce 8/9 driver packages as "still under review."

    Re: F18-F20: Nvidia guide

    I still can't get video to work. I believe the OS is up and running but it's not driving the monitor (QNIX 2710) correctly. I guess this monitor doesn't send the correct EDID and thus the OS doesn't know what the monitor supports or expects. I've read some posts about modifying the xorg.conf to output the correct signal to the monitor, but that didn't seem to work either. I was hoping someone on here had an answer for me or at least would know if there was some tool or setting such that I could inspect what mode the OS was putting the video card into when trying to go into graphics mode and write that out to some log somewhere so that I could inspect after a reboot.

    Any suggestions? At this point I've got this nice machine that hasn't been running in probably a year. The only thoughts that come to mind are:

    1. See if there is some paid support option.
    2. Install a different linux, maybe redhat.
    3. Install windows.

    Thanks,
    Nick
