Hi guys, I wanted to install nVidia drivers to my machine, running F24. I found this 'tutorial' which seems to be legit, but I am gettinginto troubles as it says, that it (dnf) was unable to find the desired package (akmod-nvidia).

I am pretty sure that I have rpmfusion repositories installed and enabled (free and non-free). When I look on the rpmfusion web, especially to the list of packages, here, I can see, that there are many packages available in the repo.

When I run dnf repolist | grep rpmfusion I get the following output:

rpmfusion-free             RPM Fusion for Fedora 24 - Free                     0
rpmfusion-free-updates     RPM Fusion for Fedora 24 - Free - Updates           8
rpmfusion-nonfree          RPM Fusion for Fedora 24 - Nonfree                  0
rpmfusion-nonfree-updates  RPM Fusion for Fedora 24 - Nonfree - Updates        0

I think that the status number means the number of packages that are available in the repo. Similarly, when I run dnf list available | grep rpmfusion I am getting only 8 entries.

When I run sudo dnf update it says, that there is nothing to do, same when used --refresh

Can you please suggest me any possible solution?

Thanks in advance

@mseleng I suggest to you do sudo dnf clean all and then try again.. and follow sudo dnf update and sudo dnf search akmod-nvidia regards.,

I would concur with @hhlp, a dnf clean all will resolve this issue! @hhlp I would change this to the answer for this item.

@hhlp thanks for the answer, but I noticed @sergiomb 's answer earlier and it works also. But still, thanks for the quick response

dnf repolist --refresh

dnf list available | grep rpmfusion | wc -l
