I have installed the latest version of fedora 25 on my desktop computer. - i7 870 - Geforce 980ti - gnome 3.22.2 - disk raid software (defined with live CD)

My computer has random freeze: I can move the mouse but nothing is clickable. I don't know if it is related to Nvidia proprietary drivers that I've installed following this tutorial https://rpmfusion.org/Howto/nVidia. But when it happens I have to reboot.

Please help me, I really love fedora (I am using it for web dev) and I don't want to switch to another distribution because of that bug.

PS: I don't know which log file I should provide you after a freeze.

Try a different DE, as there are a large number of people complaining about Gnome. I use Cinnamon and seem to do find, with my gtx 970 and amd processor. I run the pure proprietary, with the patch applied for kernel 4.10. dkms updates when the kernel changes, and I do not have to reinstall, unless a library file is updated. I run nvidia-installer --sanity after major updates, to make sure the driver is still working, and it not, just re install the nvidia driver.

Thank you for you answer, but I don't see myself using another desktop environment... Gnome is really great with my dev routine.

You might consider trying the proprietary driver, to see if that works better than the rpm one. Search for 378.13 on here, and follow the instructions to install and patch the proprietary for kernel 4.10. I have had zero problems, and i used dkms during the install to make the kernel files. I also put in 32bit during the install, and steam works great also.

I think You can try install official nvidia drivers for Your graphic card.

BUT!

when I install the newest (380.xxx) proprietary drivers I can`t use HDMI audio output.

This issue affects many different distributions, I delete the newest driver from nvidia and install old version (340.104).

Sound is working with HDMI output and I think frezzes do not happen anymore. But I do this in manjaro - not fedora.

It is worth a try.

I WILL BE DOWNVOTING ALL 4 QUESTIONS, WHERE YOU COPY AND PASTE THIS ANSWER, ESPECIALLY SINCE YOU STATE YOU ARE USING MANJARO AND NOT FEDORA. HOW DOES THIS HELP SOMEONE USING FEDORA?

Can You tell my what is the difference in installing drivers between fedora and manjaro? i do not have idea... This issue affects many different distributions. The solution is the same everywhere. What do you not understand?

The steps needed to install drivers on different distros are not going to be the same, so by not providing more information, you are not really helping.

http://cool-technology.blogspot.com/2... contains information about the HDMI issue in fedora with nvidia drivers, and also that it was fixed as of version 19, so you are misleading people about the audio problems, even if the original post had nothing to do with audio.
