Yes, I have them both installed.
It is possible that some step was missed in following that tutorial.
What is the output of
dnf list installed *nvidia*? and
dmesg | grep secure

I don’t know if that is a result of using f37 which is still beta or not, but you have many of those packages as f36 and some as f37.
I just did an upgrade of my F37 VM and did an install of the akmod-nvidia-470xx package from rpmfusion-nonfree and I got this.

Note that I have the kmod-nvidia-470xx package built for the newest installed kernel that was also newly installed. All the nvidia packages installed are for f37 and none are for f36.
This may very easily be due to the fact that you are using the rpmfusion-nonfree-nvidia-driver repo which is not yet available for auto enabling via the gnome software panel on f37.
I then removed the nvidia drivers I had just installed and reinstalled them from the rpmfusion-nonfree-nvidia-driver repo.
Removed: akmod-nvidia-470xx-3:470.141.03-2.fc37.x86_64 kmod-nvidia-470xx-5.19.12-300.fc37.x86_64-3:470.141.03-2.fc37.x86_64 nvidia-gpu-firmware-20220815-139.fc37.noarch nvidia-settings-470xx-3:470.141.03-2.fc37.x86_64 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-470xx-3:470.141.03-2.fc37.x86_64 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-470xx-kmodsrc-3:470.141.03-2.fc37.x86_64 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-470xx-libs-3:470.141.03-2.fc37.x86_64

Note that now I only have the f36 packages, they are for version 470.103 instead of 470.141, and it failed to build the kmod-nvidia package.
I would strongly suggest that for f37 you do the following.
sudo dnf remove *nvidia* --noautoremove --exclude=nvidia-gpu-firmware
sudo dnf install akmod-nvidia-470xx --disablerepo rpmfusion-nonfree-nvidia-driver --enablerepo rpmfusion-nonfree
- Wait 5 minutes then run
dnf list installed *nvidia*
If that last command shows kmod-nvidia as installed then reboot and the nvidia card should now properly load the nvidia driver.
Thanks! It’s working now.
remember to read full instructions
ex. rpmfusion documentation
I don’t now if it’s ok for me to jump in but should the secure-boot be disabled and if so how? I’m having the same problem. I’m running a NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1660ti on fedora 37
Welcome @smithapproved to ask
Shortly after a new boot, please run
uname -a and
dmesg | grep -iE 'secure|nvidia|nouveau' and post the result of both commands here using the
</> Preformatted text tags on the toolbar above the input window.
Thank you for this, just upgraded from 36 to 37 and this last 3 step worked great for me.
Just upgraded from 36 to 37 but getting same error on boot up
I ran the commands here are the results .
Can this be fixed ?
I see turning off secure boot fix this and if so is it safe?
Or is it just removing the message?
Thanks. The last 3 commands did it for me.
Turning off secure boot is safe for most users.
Alternatively, if you wish to keep secure boot active, you can sign the nvidia driver modules following the instructions at rpmfusion.
After the reboot and enabling the key in that procedure then remove and reinstall the required portions of the drivers with
sudo dnf remove \*nvidia\* --exclude=nvidia-gpu-firmware followed by
sudo dnf install akmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-cuda. After the reinstall wait 5 minutes for the modules to be built properly then reboot and the system should now load the signed nvidia modules.
Thanks alot, it is working, but the system wont regconize gpu sensor any more, it cant read the temp or the frequency.
If you are using lm_sensors you may need to run sensors-detect since the driver for the GPU has changed.
Thanks for interjecting, but being critical of what has worked for others is not the best policy.
My comment was correct. If everything went well when akmod-nvidia is installed then the akmod-nvidia package will trigger a build of kmod-nvidia. Once the kmod-nvidia package has been built then a reboot should load the modules. If kmod-nvidia is not built and not identified as available for the kernel being booted then the modules are not available to load.
It wasn’t absolutely in my purpose to be critical to your answer Jeff.
I tried to use the most humble words available to my knowledge of the English language. Even so, if I’ve been unable to communicate my experience (fedora 37 KDE Plasma) where -I thought- the message from the OS could be different, it’s only my fault.
On the 1st phrase, after the comma It was more appropriate to write “shouldn’t it be” rather than “It should be”. Even when I’ve started the sentence with “Maybe…” and started the 2nd paragraph “Sorry if I’m mistaken…” and even tried to put a little bit of humor, If the message can be misunderstood It’s my fault (the sender is the only responsible for the quality of the message), so I hope you accept my apologies.
The only must left is delete that post and keep myself on the simplest and most direct expressions to avoid screwing it up again at this forum.
One literal apology and one thousand thanks for helping me solving my issue with my driver.
PS.: I’m really a newbie on Linux and even more on this forum, I tried to answer you on a private message but I’ve been unable to. So I’ll delete this post too once I noticed you read it and change it to another one shorter and direct.
No problem. Please do not delete your second post. In fact deleting the first one now puts mine out of context.
My comment was not meant to insult and I was not insulted. I merely wanted to point out that we all have to be careful in phrasing to avoid conflicts. After all, the general guidelines here are “be excellent to everybody” so we all need to read twice before posting once, and judge how others may interpret what we say. I apologize if that offended, as it was not intended that way.
I still feel, that since my post you referred to was related to expected results the statement was correct. If the install did not put the akmod in place other errors would be seen, but only a proper install of the akmod-nvidia package and other supporting packages could be expected to then build the kmod-nvidia package on the system.
Welcome to the ask community and I will try to be a little better in my comments and hope you accept my apology as well.
Piece of cake!
Even when the in “my machine” (fedora 37 KDE - nvidia driver 390xx)
dnf list installed *nvidia* didn’t show any
kmod-nvidia, I’ve rebooted and everything went as expected. Maybe the desktop or the driver version are involved in that third step issue, so if you are in the same scenario it could help wait several minutes (to be safer) and reboot anyways, but take this suggestion as a pinch of salt.
I was assuming to revert f36, but these three statements allowed me to go on so I can’t be more grateful to Jeff ant the forum.
Keep it up!

PS.: I felt welcome to the ask community from the first login. And this feeling is getting better and better all the way.
I am very beginner and I just created an account to tell you that, the 3 last commands worked just fine for me, thank you very much, much appreciated it.
Hello Marcos and welcome to ask
I am glad you were able to find this and that the suggested commands worked for you.
Remember that the 470xx driver only applies if your GPU is old enough that the newer 525.60 driver does not work, and that the 470xx driver does not support wayland so you will be limited to only run xorg for the desktop.
Anyway, enjoy .
