The new nvidia packages will not install with dnf dragora or Discover. They must install from command line.
@Colin has built new nVidia driver packages for OM Lx 4.1 with kernel version 5.5.12-1. User needs to know whether their hardware will work with either nvidia-440 or nvidia-390 and install the correct version for their hardware. The list for nvidia-440, the list for nvidia-390.
We just built new packages for latest Lx 4.1 kernel. So if user has x86_64 system and requires the nvidia-440 package this is how to install these packages. Be sure you are booted in to kernel version 5.5.12-desktop-1omv4001 and run these commands:
$ sudo dnf clean all $ sudo dnf install --enablerepo rock-testing-$ARCH-non-free --allowerasing nvidia-440 nvidia-440-kernel-modules-desktop
Substitute your architecture for $ARCH, that will be either x86_64 or znver1. If your hardware needs the nvidia-390 package then substituent that where you see nvidia-440.
This command will erase any kernel versions not compatible with the nvidia packages. That is intentional.
Then reboot your system. After rebooting the command:
$ inxi -G
should tell you what graphical driver you are using. I presume that after rebooting you would then use nvidia-settings and/or nvidia-xconfig to do what ever people that use nVidia hardware do.
Note: As you can see currently the packages are in non-free/testing repository. That is why most users will need the option “–enablerepo rock-testing-$ARCH-non-free” until we move the package to non-free/updates repository.
