How to Install Nvidia Drivers on Fedora Linux

Nvidia Drivers for Linux

Nvidia drivers for Linux are high-quality drivers that provide excellent support for Nvidia graphics cards on Linux systems. The drivers are regularly updated and provide good performance and stability for a wide range of graphics-intensive applications.

One of the main advantages of the Nvidia drivers for Linux is that they are fully supported by Nvidia, which means that users can receive technical support and access to the latest features and updates. The drivers are also well-documented and easy to install, which makes them a good choice for users who are new to Linux or are not comfortable with the command line.

How to Install Nvidia Drivers on Fedora Linux

To install the NVIDIA drivers on Fedora, you will need to disable the Nouveau driver, which is the default open-source driver for NVIDIA graphics cards on Linux. You can do this by adding a file to the /etc/modprobe.d directory that prevents the Nouveau driver from loading.

To disable the Nouveau driver and install the NVIDIA drivers on Fedora, follow these steps:

Download the NVIDIA driver installer package from the NVIDIA website:

wget http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/450.57/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-450.57.run


Replace the URL with the URL for the latest version of the NVIDIA driver. Create a file to disable the Nouveau driver:

sudo touch /etc/modprobe.d/disable-nouveau.conf

Add the following lines to the file to disable the Nouveau driver:

blacklist nouveau options nouveau modeset=0

Save and close the file.

Reboot your system to apply the changes:

sudo reboot

After the system reboots, switch to a terminal and stop the X server:

sudo systemctl stop gdm

Make the NVIDIA driver installer executable:

chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-450.57.run

Run the NVIDIA driver installer:

sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-450.57.run

Follow the prompts to complete the installation.

When the installation is complete, start the X server:

sudo systemctl start gdm

This will install the NVIDIA drivers on your system and disable the Nouveau driver.
