In Fedora 37 , it crash Apex legends in game sometime with the driver in rpmfusion i seek a way to downgrade the driver because i cannot play properly like some peoples in reddit also

The closed source, proprietary driver is provided by Nvidia—the Fedora (or Linux community in general does not develop it). RPM Fusion merely packages it up so it can be used cleanly with other Fedora packages.
You can report a bug at RPM Fusion to ensure they are aware, but preferably, this should be reported to Nvidia directly.
Thanks i open a bug in rpmfusion , i know closed source is bad but Fedora must be a good linux gaming workstation so have a bugged driver make the gaming linux switch a pain
if you want to help 6466 – [drm:nv_drm_fence_context_create_ioctl [nvidia_drm]] *ERROR* [nvidia-drm] [GPU ID 0x00000100] Failed to allocate fence signaling event
I seek how to report the bug in nvidia too if you know how do it
I understand, but the limitations of closed source mean that Fedora can’t do anything about the bug in the driver—the source code is not available so no one other than Nvidia can fix it.
Like I said—we can’t help, even if we want to.
As the RPM Fusion maintainer has noted, the Nvidia developer forums would perhaps be the place to start:
To add some more information about what was said in the bug report:
- We cannot have multiple versions of the same software in the repos. We are limited to two versions—the stable version (which is in the
rpmfusion repos—these are created at the time of a Fedora release and do not change), and one in the
updates repos. There is no way to keep intermediate versions around. The repos were not designed for this, and the infrastructure cost of keeping all versions around is just far too high for the few times this is useful. Users can still get intermediate versions from the build systems for a period of time.
- Fedora is not an enterprise distribution and moves much quicker than enterprise distributions. This means that it generally gets newer versions of software, including things like the kernel, before enterprise distributions would. Newer versions of the kernel require newer versions of other software, in this case, the Nvidia drivers.
