I installed kernel 5.x with Nvidia NVS 310 card and the 390 driver from the rpmfusion repository. It works perfectly.

When I try and do:

   sudo dnf groupinstall -y "KDE Plasma Workspaces"

I get the following error:

Running transaction check
Transaction check succeeded.
Running transaction test
The downloaded packages were saved in cache until the next successful transaction.
You can remove cached packages by executing 'dnf clean packages'.
Error: Transaction check error:

2019-03-25 16:02:24 -0500 marked best answer Fedora 29: Nvidia driver broken with 4.20 kernel

Since updating to the 4.20 kernel the nvidia driver appears to be broken - compiler error. I have the NVS 300 nvidia card with the 340.107 driver.

I did a 'dnf update' and now all kernels 4.20 and older are broken. At the point where it should display the login screen I get the 'Oops something went wrong...' dialog.

I guess I have to revert to nouveau driver?

Is there a way to prevent 'dnf update' from going past a particular kernel version?

The last version of the 340.107 driver is July 2018. Is Nvidia likely to release a patch for this, or am I am stuck at a pre-4.20 kernel?

I am looking for suggestions for a well supported graphics card, as in not Nvidia. I have an Nvidia card at the moment and it doesn't play well with Fedora resulting in a constantly broken system.

2018-11-26 15:05:31 -0500 marked best answer Can't get Netflix working on Fedora 29 (Firefox browser)

I can't get Netflix to work on Fedora 29. I get the following error:

Oops something went wrong...

Netlflix Video Player Unavailable

We're having trouble playing Netflix in your browser. Please make sure you use an Official version of Firefox.

Error Code: F7355

I have searched for that error, and it says to clear browser caches and it also says there is a problem with codecs:

https://help.netflix.com/en/node/1051...

It doesn't say which codec specifically.
