I recently upgraded my fedora from 25 to 26 (the original install was something like fedora 22). I had the nvidia drivers from negativo repo (using this http://blog.mdda.net/oss/2016/11/25/n... ) and everything was fine (tensorflow GPU too).

But after the upgrade I got this message:

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

and the Graphics on Overview is: Gallium 0.4 on NVE7. These drives are terrible btw, the computer crashes very often.

The GPU is the Nvidia GeForce 650.

[....@homepc ~]$ lspci | grep NVIDIA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK107 [GeForce GTX 650] (rev a1)
01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GK107 HDMI Audio Controller (rev a1)


EDIT I actually fixed it using:

sudo dnf install kernel-devel xorg-x11-drv-nvidia akmod-nvidia --allowerasing --skip-broken
edit retag flag offensive close merge delete


just run nvidia-xconfig as root ? have you tried this?

Sorry I didn't mentioned it, but yes I tried and then the gui refused to start, so I deleted the configuration files from rescue mode to be able to boot again.
