2017-11-21 12:12:36 -0500 answered a question How install nvidia drivers on fedora 27

Hi,

I followed letter by letter the guide linked below, it worked for Fedora 26 and for Fedora 27 after upgrade. You download the driver from nvidia website. Type cautiously every command they say (especially the ones to reboot to one mode and the other).

Fedora Nvidia Guide - If-not-true-then-false

The guide also has pictures, and code blocks, so it's easy to follow. All credits to the web site owner.

Good luck !

I was having the same problem, please try this, it worked for me.

What I did :

sudo dnf repolist sudo dnf config-manager --set-disabled [repo name without stars] sudo dnf repolist /!(check if only star repo)/!\ sudo dnf update

Then follow what's described in fedora magazine article for upgrading from 26 to 27.

Worked like a charm.

Don't forget to enable back your repos after update.

Commenting the line didn't worked for me and raise another error at line 636

Coming from problem-reboot-to-upgrade-from-26-to-27. May this be a kernel bug or actually hardware problems ? I remember having trouble installing fedora 26 because of my gpu (a gtx970), I had to do boot without graphical acceleration or I ran into a reboot.

Thanks for your answers, both of them were helpful in a way. By trying to choose another kernel (have something like fedora 4.11.13, 4.11.12 and 4.11.8), I did have some graphical result by starting the fedora 4.x.8, 3 dots appeared on a grey background, then reboot, but this almost the same log, and error for the same thing.

2017-11-16 14:21:50 -0500 asked a question Problem reboot to upgrade from 26 to 27

Hi everyone,

I followed every steps described on the fedora magazine website to upgrade my Fedora Spins Cinnamon from 26 to 27, and all 3 command to get upgrades went okay (one downloaded like 1k upgrades, around 1.6G so I assume this is okay).

When I use the command to reboot and do upgrade, it goes to where the upgrade should start, just after the fedora build to choose (here 26 as it's not installed yet). Then I got my normal cpu over temperature (never caused problems, even to install 26 one week ago), and I barely see a message popping then it reboot again. From there, back to 26 like everyday.

What can I do to troubleshoot this ?
