I currently have the Fedora Cinnamon Spin installed on this machine and I’m having some trouble with deciding which packages I need to install.
So far I’ve done:
sudo dnf install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia akmod-nvidia
sudo dnf install xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-cuda
sudo dnf update -y
sudo dnf install vulkan (Already included with the first command)
sudo dnf install automake (needed for akmods)
I have no idea what Optimus is. Here it says that Optimus is supported for my Graphics Card, however if I run
/sbin/lspci | grep -e 3Dnothing shows.
Is the KMS section needed? The only thing I could see it helping me out with from reading is to set the screen resolution for my LUKS passphrase prompt.
I don’t think Cinnamon uses Wayland, is this correct?
For the NVENC/NVDEC section, does the 860m support this?
For the x86_64 (64bit) users section, it says
I plan on using Steam Proton and Lutris so I’ll probably need this package. It says for the kmod version to use
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 however I installed the akmod nvidia driver package, what’s the difference between akmod and kmod? So is there a akmod package version instead?
- video acceleration support must work for the 860m, the Geforce 8 series is 12 years old.
What should I install and not install? Thanks!
