Fedora 25 has Wayland enabled by default. However, if your computer has a (good) Nvidia graphic card and want to make use of it, you’ll need to switch to Xorg and install the Nvidia proprietary driver.
Note that only the Nvidia driver with the version newer than 375.20 works on Fedora 25.
Ref: How do I install the Nvidia driver on Fedora 25?
This is my third time having problem installing Nvidia drivers on Ubuntu (14.04). What’s worse is that I could not remember how I fixed them last time.
Hope this blog post will prevent me from pulling my hair out for the 4th time.
So, I installed Nvidia driver as usual:
# apt-get install nvidia_352
After it’s finished, I tried to load the module:
# modprobe nvidia
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'nvidia_352': Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
Well, it turned out that I need to also install another linux-image package: linux-image-extra-3.13.0-70-generic. If you try to install this package on your machine, ensure that you match the version of the kernel too; i.e. 3.13.0-70 in my case.
# apt-get install linux-image-extra-3.13.0-70-generic
# modprobe nividia
# lsmod | grep nvidia
nvidia 8642880 33
drm 303102 2 nvidia
