OS : Fedora Workstation 34
CPU : AMD Ryzen 5900x
I purchased a cheap MSI graphics card which uses Nvidia’s GeForce GT 710 GPU.
Following is the specs of the graphics card
I want to install this graphics card in my new AMD Ryzen desktop.
As I understand, Fedora does not come with proprietary drivers. And Mr Linus Torvalds does not like Nvidia either So, what is the recommended way to install this Nvidia GPU’s driver in Fedora WS 34 ?
I found (and downloaded) the driver for Linux 64-bit from the following Nvidia web page.
Its a 169 MB file named
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-460.80.run . This .run extension seemed a bit weird to me as I expecting a .rpm package. But, before running this (and if I can run it successfuly in Fedora), I thought of asking you guys on the common/recommended way to install a Nvidia GPU in a Fedora 34 system.
