Hey I am new to fedora, but I have some experience in Ubuntu.
I have installed fedora yesterday, everything was going fine until I tried to change the resolution of the monitor (nouveau), and it pumped out an error (Badvalue)
So I downloaded the nvidia drivers to try and fix it, it went horrible, only two 16:9 resolutions were available and the screen was awfully zoomed and I couldn’t see anything.
After some research I acknowledged that the dvi converter I’m using was blocking the EDID from the monitor,
So what I did was creating a custom EDID, by extracting the already existing one from windows 10, and moving it over and using it, as per the instructions provided by the arch wiki.
-NVIDIA/Troubleshooting - ArchWiki
-Kernel mode setting - ArchWiki
I created the .EDID file and moved it to fedora and made a .conf in the X11 directory.
Here is the problem, whenever I modify the x server settings, the fedora will never get past the point of a CLI with the last line in it being :Started gnome display manager.
It never goes past this point and if I try going to the console by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F3 and typing gdm as root,
Nothing happens except a black screen after going back to the GUI interface.
Please help I’m so frustrated by this problem, as it also happened in Ubuntu, but I seemed to get around it by deleting the xorg.conf file, but I didn’t get the desired resolution, so I just decided to stay in a smaller res.
I decided to switch to fedora in order to learn more about linux and avoid the frankendistro I made using Ubuntu.
