Almalinux 9.3 issue. After driver install it gives a black screen

Hello. I installed the latest drivers on my computer that is running almalinux 9.3 and after the restart it is giving a black screen with a command prompt. I am using the NVIDIA 970 and it did work with ubuntu, pop os and mint. Not sure why this is happening with the PC. I did the same process with my laptop which is using NVIDIA MX 710 and it did work perfectly as I am posting using it.

I have enabled SSH to the computer before installing the drivers, so I can give any information needed throw the command line. Just give me the steps of what to do since I am a bit weak in this area.

Please advise me and thank you in advance.

Please run as root and attach the resulting nvidia-bug-report.log.gz file to your post.

I did upload the file. Please check it.

This looks like there’s just no DE installed. Please try installing gnome and set standard runlevel to start it
systemctl set-default graphical

I did as you told me but still and btw I am using KDE.

Can you manually start the DM?
sudo systemctl start display-manager
Please attach a journal output
sudo journalctl -b0 >journal.txt

I couldn’t start DM. But I have the journal file attached.

SDDM tries to start a Wayland session and fails. Please either switch SDDM to X11 or set kernel parameter nvidia-drm.modeset=1to enable wayland support.

I would like to thank you for your support, you cant believe how happy I was once it started working as it should.

I didn’t reply yesterday as I was testing the system and making sure it is working as it should.
