Hi there,

I am running Fedora 25 with cinnamon (see below for details). Since some days, cinnamon is only running with software rendering mode and I cannot change this - can somebody please help me to fix this?

$ rpm -qa | grep -i cinnamon cinnamon-menus-3.2.0-1.fc25.x8664 cinnamon-desktop-3.2.4-1.fc25.x8664 cinnamon-control-center-filesystem-3.2.1-1.fc25.x8664 cinnamon-translations-3.2.2-1.fc25.noarch imsettings-cinnamon-1.7.2-1.fc25.x8664 cinnamon-screensaver-3.2.13-2.fc25.x8664 cinnamon-3.2.8-11.fc25.x8664 cinnamon-control-center-3.2.1-1.fc25.x8664 cinnamon-session-3.2.0-1.fc25.x8664 cinnamon-settings-daemon-3.2.1-1.fc25.x86_64

Kernel is: $ uname -r 4.9.9-200.fc25.x86_64

I am using properiatary nvidia drivers: $ lsmod | grep -i nv nvidiadrm 45056 2 nvidiamodeset 790528 3 nvidiadrm nvidia 11935744 54 nvidiamodeset drmkmshelper 151552 1 nvidiadrm drm 339968 5 nvidiadrm,drmkmshelper

Generally, it seems like this driver is correctly working: $ glxgears 3302 frames in 5.0 seconds = 660.211 FPS 3408 frames in 5.0 seconds = 681.546 FPS 2956 frames in 5.0 seconds = 590.841 FPS 3015 frames in 5.0 seconds = 602.847 FPS

So what´s the problem here?

run nvidid-installer --sanity as root, and see if opengl files have changed. if so, reinstall the driver, and should be good. same issue for me, after an update of mesa stuff.

Thanks, that was it. Unfortunately, now, I have another problem (the driver mod does not survive a reboot), but I will go for this in another thread.

cinnamon uses software rendering mode when the driver fails to provide hardware rendering, you have a broken driver.
