I started with a fresh install of Fedora 25 from:
Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-25-1.3.iso (booted from USB stick)
I then performed the 1st update
Then I added the RPMFusion repositories (both Free and non-Free) and followed the instructions found at
Then I followed the instructions to install
dnf install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia akmod-nvidia “kernel-devel-uname-r == $(uname -r)”
Upon reboot I received an error that xorg-x11-server-devel was missing.
I installed xorg-x11-server-devel.
I experiemented with reboots, reinstall on the above packages, and nvidia-xconfig and nothing worked so I decided to start from scratch.
After reformatting, installing, and dnf update, I then manually used
dnf install xorg-x11-server-devel
Then I added the RPMFusion repos and installed following the instructions (including the dnf update).
After rebooting I would start nvidia-settings and get:
You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run
nvidia-xconfig as root), and restart the X server.
root~]# nvidia-xconfig WARNING: Unable to locate/open X configuration file. New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'
I was told some modules were missing and given a command to use the updates-testing repo:
dnf --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing --enablerepo=updates-testing update akmods *\nvidia*
I still run into the same problem. I am attaching a nvidia-bug-report. In generating this report I first manually started X using
startx – -logverbose 6
Any help greatly appreciated!
