- I keep on getting errors from Fedora about missing nvidia kernel modules on my Fedora 39 installation. I’m getting this:
07:12 ~ modinfo -F version nvidia
modinfo: ERROR: Module nvidia not found.
✘ 07:12 ~
And also have disabled secure-boot from the get-go. Can someone tell me what im doing wrong?
I also can’t seem to find it (NVIDIA 535) on the software app at all.
Make sure third-party repos are enabled
sudo dnf install akmod-nvidia
Wait about 5 minutes or so
modinfo -F version nvidia
When it shows version
All done when no secure boot enabled
This is my output:
08:06 ~ sudo dnf install akmod-nvidia

Okay, don’t worry I fixed it using this link:
Usually when this
modular filtering error message is shown it is because the user has installed cuda from a cuda-fedoraXX repo and thus a modular driver is interfering.
The details can be found with
dnf module list and
dnf repolist the last of which shows the enabled repos. If a repo whose name begins with
cuda is shown that repo should be disabled.
if the error continues then the command
sudo dnf module disable nvidia-driver should fix it. (the module name may have been shown with the
dnf module list command above)
