This blog post will talk about how to set up Nvidia proprietary drivers on your Fedora 22 Workstation, or at least how I did it ;-)

  1. Detect your Nvidia card model:

    lspci |grep -i VGA

  2. Switch to root (or execute rest of the commands with sudo priviledges:


  3. Update your system and reboot after that:

    dnf update -y reboot

  4. Enable RPM Fusion repositories:

    dnf install -y

  5. Install Nvidia drivers (8 + series of cards are supported):

    dnf install -y akmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs kernel-devel acpid

  6. Backup old initramfs image:

    mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-old.img

  7. And generate new one:

    dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

  8. Reboot and enjoy ;-)
