Hello everyone, I’ve recently tried to replace my Ubuntu version with Fedora 34.
The installation worked fine, however I cannot seem to get the Nvidia driver running.
After seeing this being an issue on multiple threads on Nvidia’s forum, I checked and secure boot is disabled.
Before each of the guides, I installed a fresh version of Fedora 34, ran
sudo dnf update and switched to Xorg by changing
[daemon] part to this:
[daemon] WaylandEnable=false DefaultSession=gnome-xorg.desktop
I tried these guides:
sudo nvautoinstall --rpmadd sudo nvautoinstall --driver
After each of these, I was able to reboot successfully. The driver did not function. It wasn’t possible to open the settings application and trying to execute
nvidia-settings resulted in different errors:
ERROR: NVIDIA driver is not loaded
ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system
ERROR: Unable to find display on any available system
Both before install:
I also heard about the driver having issues with 5.11 kernels. Is this true?
I attempted to use another kernel, however that didn’t end up working (getting the kernel to compile).
Another idea was to force the kernel module (?) to force build, however there were some dependencies missing I couldn’t find.
Any help is highly appreciated. Please let me know if additional information is required and where to get it, I am quite new to Linux, and Fedora, so I’m not very familiar with the system.
