You have a laptop with Optimus Technology as shown by the two VGA strings from your lspci command. Unfortunately the default install from the binary driver is unlikely to handle various settings specific to Fedora to handle this technology.

At this time the best way is probably to use the packaged drivers from RPM Fusion https://rpmfusion.org/Howto/NVIDIA

If any issue, please consider forwarding a bug report to NVIDIA: https://rpmfusion.org/Howto/NVIDIA#Bu...

2018-04-08 12:31:04 -0500 answered a question The pc freezes after login, have to reboot for successful start up. RPMfusion, nvidia drivers, gdm, Gnome Workstation.

Thx for your feedback. For the record, newer drivers from RPM Fusion will disable wayland in gdm until the situation improves. (specially when mutter will enable EGLStream as reported in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.... ).

Everything should work as appropriate by default. (if not, please report to https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org )

2018-04-08 12:31:04 -0500 answered a question How to really install CUDA 9 on Fedora 27

Please consider using the NVIDIA official "network" repo over the NVIDIA "bundle" RPM with everything in it. You will miss some critical CUDA updates if not done.

This repository is compatible with the whole RPM Fusion repository, so you won't expect package conflicts. Of course, you need to use a compatible compiler if using a more recent fedora than what is supported by the NVIDIA repository. But this can be done as mentioned in 5.

2018-04-08 12:31:03 -0500 answered a question Graphics seems not rendered on Nvidia dGPU after kernel update

Please verify that both nvidia.ko and the userspace are at the same version. The Current RPM Fusion driver is at 390.48 nowadays.

We are looking to improve this interaction in this report https://bugzilla.rpmfusion.org/show_b...

For now, best is to restart automatically when a driver update occurs (or rely on gnome-software offline updates).

2018-04-08 12:31:03 -0500 answered a question rpmfusion nvidia driver doesn't load from kernel 14.4

The original issue in this report seems to be related to an old issue for :

sudo akmods --force

This is not needed anymore with current fedora (f26+)

Best is to use RPM Fusion packaged drivers in any cases.

2018-01-03 11:21:30 -0500 answered a question Installing adobe flash player on fedora 27

The Official way to install flash on any version of Fedora is to install the Adobe yum/dnf repository. This can be done browsing https://get.adobe.com/en/flashplayer/ and installing the "adobe-release" package.

Then:

  • For firefox or any NPAPI enabled browser:

    sudo dnf install http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
    sudo dnf install flash-plugin
  • For chromium or any PPAPI enabled browser:

    sudo dnf install http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
    sudo dnf install flash-player-ppapi

Because there is now a native and modern NPAPI flash plugin, there is no more the need to use the freshplayerplugin wrapper. (which allows to use the PPAPI plugin within firefox or any NPAPI enabled browser). This package can be removed.

sudo dnf remove freshplayerplugin -y

Please note that using the Adobe repository is on the safe side for using known third parties repository for Fedora. https://rpmfusion.org/FedoraThirdPart...

2017-06-21 18:26:49 -0500 answered a question Setup hybrid graphics on a Slimbook Excalibur

Nvidia Optimus Laptop are supported easily since Fedora 25 using the Nvidia driver. This requires no change from the usual packaged installation process.

Please follow the official RPM Fusion documentation for Nvidia https://rpmfusion.org/Howto/NVIDIA

And the section for Optimus https://rpmfusion.org/Howto/Optimus

In your case, you shouldn't even need to use nvidia-xconfig, so you will have to remove the generated /etc/X11/xorg.conf And possibly clean conflicting libraries created by the nvidia installer.
