Revision history [back]

I recently switched to Fedora 25. The newest driver (375.20 at time of writing) does indeed support Xorg 1.19 according to the release highlights.

  • Added support for X.Org xserver ABI 23 (xorg-server 1.19)

This driver should work for most Fedora 25 users although you may have to jump through some hoops. However, you and I are both on laptops. I have an Acer Aspire V17 with a 960M. I believe your machine also uses Optimus to switch back and forth from the integrated graphics and the Nvidia GPU. After installing the newest driver X wouldn't start. (I recommend you image your machine before doing anything.) I did a brief search on your machine and you may be able to disable Optimus - see here. If that's the case, then maybe just installing the driver will work for you.

If that doesn't work, there's the Bumblebee project and is what I ended up using. You'll need to add the repo and then choose between the managed or unmanaged version. I chose the managed version and as of right now - it all seems to be working properly. It was quite a struggle though and I spent a lot of time googling which is how I found this question :)

Good luck!
