Hi, I am looking to upgrade from 29 to 32.
I am reluctant because of the headaches associated with my video card and the default grub settings following an upgrade, or any new install, at least at the time of 28 and 29.
After installation my system would hang because of an issue with the generic nouveau kernel module that would try and run my Nvidia card.
My system would hang and restart.
The information regarding my video card;
01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile] (rev a1)
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 10c1
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 141
Memory at a3000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
Memory at 90000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
Memory at a0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=32M]
I/O ports at 4000 [size=128]
[virtual] Expansion ROM at a4000000 [disabled] [size=512K]
Kernel driver in use: nvidia
Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia_drm, nvidia
I would have to go and install some nvidia repos and update using dnf, then black list the nouveau driver, set to load nvidia in my grub command line, by editing grub command with the following flags; (/etc/default/grub)
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=“$(sed ‘s, release .*$,g’ /etc/system-release)”
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=“rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau modprobe.blacklist=nouveau nvidia-drm.modeset=1 resume=UUID=891184a1-0d36-4c83-8033-198fd32658ae rhgb quiet”
It is a bit of a hassle and I would like to know if I can update Fedora without going through the same procedures.
Can something be done ahead of time?
Has this issue been resolved in the newer version?
