I tried running a game, but I got the error that my driver is too old. I need at least roughly 525, but I only have 520. Other people seem to already have the driver, although I’m not sure if they’re from rpmfusion or even on Fedora. There are no updates available on my side. Are the latest drivers already pushed to rpmfusion?
There’s a newer (525.60.11) version in a testing repository, you can test it by running:
sudo dnf update akmod-nvidia --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing
Please post the output of
dnf list installed *nvidia* and
dnf repolist so we can see exactly what is installed and what repos you may be using.
The 525.60 drivers have been on rpmfusion for some time.
Here’s the output of both commands:

I’m in a similar situation: currently have the 520 drivers, even tho it does seem the 525 are available, yet I am not being offered an upgrade.

Even tho, the 525 are clearly available on ‘updates’
Now the update is pushed to me.
My mirror updated too. Something must have been stuck, earlier today I run dnf with --refresh parameter, yet dnf info showed 525 still in testing.
and, I have it too now.
I guess someone gave it a kick, or someone kicked them, lol
I see you have both the rpmfusion-nonfree and the rpmfusion-nonfree-nvidia-driver repos enabled. I also see that the 520 driver you currently have came from rpmfusion-nonfree and not even from the rpmfusion-nonfree-updates repo. In my experience dnf tends to stick with one repo when a package has been installed from that repo even if there are newer packages on the other repo.
sudo dnf upgrade akmod-nvidia --refresh --disablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree. This should force dnf to select the newer packages from rpmfusion-nonfree-nvidia-driver and the version update should work.
You also could get the very latest from the rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing repo with
sudo dnf upgrade akmod-nvidia --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing since the 525.60.11 packages are still in testing while the 525.60.06 packages are in the updates repo. This was mentioned by @ozeszty above.
Thanks very much for the reply. However, shortly after my last post, ‘dnfdagora-updater’ offered me the 525 drivers, without me having done anything.
Good to know how to point to ‘testing’ in the future if I need to. Cheers
