NVIDIA – New Driver – OK with 4.8.. — 1 Comment

  1. Hello, I’m having a bit of trouble with Nvidia’s drivers on Fedora 24 64bit.
    I can install them using the installer (currently using 370.28) and they work fine until I get a kernel update. Then I can’t get to a graphical login. I have to uninstall the driver, install nouveau again, get some more info off the net and reinstall the binary driver. I’m using dkms to try and keep the modules ok with the new kernels, but it looks as if it’s not working. Current kernel is 4.7.3-201.
