Howto/NVIDIA – RPM Fusion

Read the release announcement for fddora the details. I haven’t experienced any issues with the nvidia driver on 4. This will not work with secure boot per the rpm fusion website. Nvidia released a new driver – version RPM Fusion is a 10 year old project that already has switched once of primary coordinator.

On recent hardware such as 10xx series for laptops that lack decent support in nouveau, this service needs to be disabled. Working great now without any problems. When you get kernel updates, the update pauses after installing kernel-devel to build the new nvidia module for the new kernel, and it takes about 2 to 3 minutes, on my system, then the rest of the update will complete.

Akmods have more overhead than regular kmod packages as they require a few development tools such as gcc and automake in order to be able to build new kmods locally. Metadata Update from catanzaro: Your graphics card should be inserted into the PCI-E x16 slot closest to the heat-sink.

With some help received here and some additional googling, I concluded that the KDE-spin update utility does not refer to dnf to handle the updates, but to packagekit that for a probably old and unresolved bug does not obey to the excudepkgs command placed in dnf.


But for now I decided to have Fedora with open source nouveau driver as my primary workhorse distribution, and dual-boot to Ubuntu or SolusOS with proprietary NVidia drivers for Steam and maybe some other 3D games. Something that in my experience is from time to time needed.

It walks you through the installation of both software and hardware, and covers everything you need to get your NVIDIA card up and running.
