No actually its booting into desktop fine. But I’m missing the cool spin animation it used to have before NVIDIA driver installation

I recall a time when mine did what you show, but the bios logo with the fedora logo and spinning returned. I don’t recall that I did anything to change that.

4.1 Create /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf file

Create /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf with content “options nvidia_drm modeset=1”

echo "options nvidia_drm modeset=1" >> /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf

4.2 Create /etc/dracut.conf.d/nvidia.conf file

Create /etc/dracut.conf.d/nvidia.conf file with following content, note you need white spaces inside add_drivers and install_items:

add_drivers+=" nvidia nvidia_modeset nvidia_uvm nvidia_drm " install_items+=" /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf "

4.3 Regenerate initramfs/initrd image(s)

dracut -f

Issue is fixed now


Many thanks for replying with the solution! I’m going to bookmark it in case it comes up again. I figured modeset support might have something to do with it.


Actually NVIDIA & Plymouth doesn’t fit with each other. I hope Team-fedora addresses this issue and fixes this in-future
It’s really annoying to see a three dot animation at Boot time.

Fedora does not provide the proprietary nVidia drivers. This problem is specifically an issue with nVidia. Please contact nVidia and let them know you’d like this fixed in their code.

I think that if Fedora offers laptop with NVIDIA, Fedora will definitely solve this problem.
