I updated my kernel to
but throughout the update process I was forced to logout of my current desktop session and couldn’t log back in
for reference, I was faced with this error
Unable to download updates: Cannot download Packages/k/kernel-devel- matched-6,1.8-200.fc37.x86_64.rpm: All mirrors were tried; Last error: Status code: 404
when trying to update from the software centre
so I tried performing the upgrade from the terminal instead.
in the end, I faced the error message that forced me to logout.
I rebooted the system to see this message
Nvidia kernel module missing, falling back to nouveau
I was able to login and all that but the GPU driver now is the mesa one.
Checked the software centre and I saw that the driver is installed indeed.
but when I run
modinfo -F version nvidia
modinfo: ERROR: Module nvidia not found.
so now I don’t know what to do.
things I thought I could mention that might be important somehow
last time I faced this error message was when I enabled secureboot on my machine since I’m also running windows 11 “dual booted with my fedora”
I followed thishttps://rpmfusion.org/Howto/Secure%20Boot
and was able to get the drivers back and all was good
I don’t know if I should do it again upon every kernel update
