Hi, I installed Fedora 38 yesterday, on a Lenovo Legion Y-450 laptop. I installed several applications, enabled additional repositories and downloaded proprietary NVIDIA drivers from the software store. I have a great deal of problems with Fedora. The boot time is very long, I have to type the password to decrypt the disk on every boot (I don’t know if it’s a bug) When playing native Linux games, I have 1 to 20 fps (after a while the system shuts down due to x X11 error) and every now and then my system has some critical X11 related error, even when checking the forum my system had an error. I thought it was a Wayland related error, so I fired up GNOME on Xorg session, no change. Is this some general problem with NVIDIA GPU’s, or is it just my laptop? (Ignore the system error tab, it was an one time GNOME shell crash)
Make sure that you have removed all other irrelevant NVIDIA drivers, correctly determined your card model, installed the driver exactly for your card model, and the kernel actually loads the installed driver for your card.
Just to be sure, my card is fairly new (GTX 1650), so I only need to type the 3 commands in the Current GeForce/Quadro/Tesla section, right? Unless I need to do more than that, I think I have done all I can. I have reinstalled the drivers using dnf, but there is still no visible effect. Should I install the drivers using the harder method (Official Advanced Driver Search | NVIDIA).
That would not be advisable since it is different.
What are the results of the commands previously suggested, especially the dnf list installed \*nvidia\*.?
Also, what is the output of mokutil --sb-state?
If secure boot is enabled the system will not be able to load and use the nvidia drivers until one either disables secure boot or has signed the nvidia modules.
