Nvidia 555.58.02 in rpmfusion testing repo

Rpmfusion is switching from the production branch to ‘new features’ branch.




Added rpmfusion

This will get pushed to stable repo’s this friday as there are no negative reports here or at rpmfusion bug tracker.


Just a quick question before I dive in.
I see the packages akmod-nvidia and akmod-nvidia-open there.
Is it correct to assume that this now should be installed using dnf install akmod-nvidia-open instead of the older dnf install akmod-nvidia command?

When I use dnf upgrade akmod-nvidia --enablerepo rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing it does not offer to install the akmod-nvidia-open package; but using dnf install akmod-nvidia-open --enablerepo rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing wants to install both akmod-nvidia packages.

I have no intention to change to akmod-nvidia-open module, the default will remain akmod-nvidia as it supports all cards.

It’s possible to swap to open

sudo dnf --enablerepo=r*g swap akmod-nvidia akmod-nvidia-open

I will update now.

Is this the Open kernel module ?

# modinfo -l nvidia

I assume that means you tested installing akmod-nvidia-open ?

No, I haven’t tested this particular method. The Negativo17 Repo has had the instructions on loading the Open Driver module for over a year. I was asking more so if now it’s being packaged by RPMFusion now.

Should have worded my response better. Sorry for the confusion.

rpmfusion began shipping nvidia open more than two years ago.


You probably missed it as it’s in rpmfusion-nonfree-tainted repo to avoid conflict with nvidia-kmod.

Why doesn’t anyone bother to RTFM



To be fair, on Machines I used to service or personal I have not ran RPMFusion is a long time. Have kept up with progress lightly though. This is still good to know !

I wont be buying anymore nvidia hardware once my GTX1650 breaks as nvidia no longer make low wattage cards.

Not all the newer nvidia GPUs are power hogs.

As you can see the max is 130W but, as it is running right now, it only is drawing 13W. This is on my desktop with 2 monitors.
