Checking kmods exist for 5.19.11-300.fc37.x86_64 [ OK ] Building and installing nvidia-470xx-kmod [FAILED] Building rpms failed; see /var/cache/akmods/nvidia-470xx/470.103.01-1-for-5.19.11-300.fc37.x86_64.failed.log for details
Hint: Some kmods were ignored or failed to build or install. You can try to rebuild and install them by by calling '/usr/sbin/akmods --force' as root.
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.
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 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.
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.
