Hi! Today, after I updated Fedora to 36 (Beta), I started getting the message “Nvidia kernel module missing, falling back to nouveau”. I have tried removing and installing back akmod-nvidia and xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-cuda packages (installation instruction). But no luck. I’ve seen some people resolve this by installing 470 drivers, but this isn’t an option for me — I have GeForce 940MX, which is supported by current drivers.
Installed version of akmod-nvidia:
Name : akmod-nvidia
Epoch : 3
Version : 510.60.02
Release : 1.fc36
Architecture : x86_64
Size : 24 k
Source : nvidia-kmod-510.60.02-1.fc36.src.rpm
Repository : @System
From repo : rpmfusion-nonfree
Summary : Akmod package for nvidia kernel module(s)
URL : http://www.nvidia.com/
License : Redistributable, no modification permitted
Description : This package provides the akmod package for the nvidia kernel modules.
I am running: 5.17.2-300.fc36.x86_64 and have kernel-devel version 5.17.2, release 300.fc36 installed.
Output of sudo akmods (and sudo akmods --force too):
Checking kmods exist for 5.17.2-300.fc36.x86_64 [ OK ]
I have secure boot disabled, which is also indicated in these logs:
secureboot: Secure boot disabled
Other than that, there’s kernel command line with rhgb quiet rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau modprobe.blacklist=nouveau nvidia-drm.modeset=1 arguments.
And afterwards something from nouveau — nouveau 0000:01:00.0: NVIDIA GM108 (1180d0a2)
That tells me you have not installed the nvidia driver.
Please post the output of dnf repolist
Also, if you want the RTX 3050 to be fully functional you will need to (if not already done) enable the rpmfusion repo and install the nvidia driver. The repo can be enabled from gnome-software on the 3rd party repos tab, and the drivers can be installed with sudo dnf install akmod-nvidia.
Other instructions here and here that still work as well.
As I’ve said in the original post, I have installed akmod-nvidia from rpmfusion for my Nvidia GeForce 940MX. I have posted the output of dnf info akmod-nvidia, too. And obviously, I have these repos alongside others:
