When I execute the command

sudo modprobe nvidia

I get the message: modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'nvidia': No such device

My Sistem:

lspci -k | grep nvidia Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia_drm, nvidia

lspci | grep -i VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [GeForce GT 635M] (rev a1)

rpm -qa | grep nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-kmodsrc-418.43-1.fc29.x86_64 kmod-nvidia-4.20.14-200.fc29.x86_64-418.43-2.fc29.x86_64 bumblebee-nvidia-418.43-1.fc29.x86_64 nvidia-driver-cuda-libs-387.22-1.fc26.x86_64 kmod-nvidia-4.20.15-200.fc29.x86_64-418.43-2.fc29.x86_64 akmod-nvidia-418.43-2.fc29.x86_64

try sudo dnf remove nouveau and see if that helps, you might have to rebuidl the nvidia drivers, from the rpm

Please follow this guide from repositories:

I personally find this repository best in term of Nvidia proprietary drivers.

Or you can try this short solution:

  • sudo dnf config-manager --add-repo=
  • sudo dnf remove nvidia
  • dnf -y install nvidia-driver dkms-nvidia
