Graphical glitches when booting in Fedora 36


I’m experiencing weird graphical glitches when booting. It does not happen on any other distro. I have installed Nvidia drivers from RPM Fusion. I’m new to Linux so if you need additional information just let me know.

Video of the problem:

Do you have 2screens if true try unplug one and try with a single one if that works any smoother.

It does not help, still the same with only 1 monitor.

Are you trying in a live mode or have installed. If not install it and update the system.

I’ve been using this system for 2-3 days now. It is installed on my nvme. If I remember correctly Live session didn’t have this problem so I assume this is something to do with nvidia?

I have the same problem but mine lasts longer than yours. This all started since the 500+ Nvidia drivers.

I have just upgraded to Fedora 36 (from 35) and noticed the same video glitching. I logged out and logged back in using xorg and the glitching is gone. If I return to use Wayland it comes back (this didn’t happen with Fedora 35 + Wayland).

There were a lot of changes in the latest version of gnome so you may have to see what settings have changed.I don’t use gnome on wayland I stick with xorg so I can’t help with what needs to be changed.

This may or may not be related to the original problem in this post, even if the symptoms seem similar.

Please open your own thread with this issue and we can do a bit more digging into hardware and software as well as video drivers to see if the problem may be identified and fixed.

It is generally bad form to tag your issue onto another that has been idle for some time.
