Yes it will only affect the next boot if inserted in the initrd. You will have to modify /etc/dracut.conf.d/50-dracut-distro.conf to include the driver. Then run dracut to rebuild the initrd. I’m interested in your setup.
Or people don’t care enough to provide any feedback.
In both cases we can be happy: or everything works like a charm, or there are no users interested to have their nvidia graphic card drivers working (adelson.oliveira excluded - thanks for your constant feedbacks)
It is extremely important for nVidia users to know what software supports which hardware or product. According to what I’m reading the 396 driver does not have the same supported products list as the 390 driver. As an example 390 supports GeForce 500 series and the 396 driver does not. There may be more so users need to be aware of this.
This does not make sense to me but it is what is published at here.
New nVidia drivers version nvidia-current-396.45 and nvidia-long-lived-390.77 available here. Both should work with kernel 4.16.13 and 4.17.x. Please test and report any issues here. Also please report if they work. That is important for us to know also.
Thanks to @Colin for providing these new packages.
