Nvidia Driver Quadro P2000 on Redhat 8


We are trying to install the driver for Nvidia Quadro P2000 on Redhat 8.2
After several unsuccessful attempts following some instructions like that link : https://linuxconfig.org/redhat-8-nvidia-driver-install-guide
We followed this link sent from Redhat support : https://access.redhat.com/solutions/4134401
Now we can get a GUI by running startx command but when restart the server it stops at boot as you can see :

There is this error in Xorg.0.conf :

The symptom is like you don’t have a valid xorg.conf file…
But please run nvidia-bug-report.sh as root and attach the resulting nvidia-bug-report.log.gz file.
We need to read the whole error log to figure out the main problems.


Thanks for your answer.
You can check the file below
