I am using Qubes 4.1 with kernel 5.8.16, but I am not sure if this issue belongs to Testing 4.1.
Currently I am trying to install nvidia drivers. I’ll summarize here a few issues I’ve encountered so as not to create too many posts.
First, I tried to apply this docu (https://github.com/Qubes-Community/Contents/blob/master/docs/configuration/install-nvidia-driver.md).
In a fedora-32 standalone VM I first did
sudo dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm sudo dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
and get stuck with the error:
[user@dev-testing ~]$ yumdownloader --resolve xorg-x11-drv-nvidia
Last metadata expiration check: 0:44:43 ago on Wed Dec 30 12:07:54 2020.
No package xorg-x11-drv-nvidia available.
Exiting due to strict setting.
To get on with it already, I then looked at the next steps: In most forums there is something about editing the grub/efi/xen config file.
However, I can’t find such anywhere.
[root@dom0 boot]# ls -R grub2/ grub2/: grubenv themes grub2/themes: qubes grub2/themes/qubes: progress_bar2_c.png qubes.png unifont-regular-14.pf2 progress_bar_c.png theme.txt unifont-regular-16.pf2 progress_bar_hl_c.png unifont-bold-16.pf2 unifont-regular-32.pf2
[root@dom0 boot]# ls -R efi efi: EFI efi/EFI: BOOT fedora qubes efi/EFI/BOOT: efi/EFI/fedora: efi/EFI/qubes: fonts grub.cfg grubx64.efi xen-4.14.0.efi xen.efi efi/EFI/qubes/fonts:
[root@dom0 etc]# ls | grep grub grub2.cfg grub2-efi.cfg grub.d
I find corresponding config files. How do I continue?
Edit: My system spec are listed in Qubes 4.1 installation failure.
Edit: I followed the steps in
and downloaded the related rpmfusion files (i downloaded and installed
https://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/releases/32/Everything/x86_64/os/repoview/rpmfusion-free-release.html and https://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/releases/32/Everything/x86_64/os/repoview/rpmfusion-nonfree-release.html since my dom0 has fedora 32.
Then I tried
[root@dom0 Downloads]# sudo qubes-dom0-update akmod-nvidia
Using debian-clone as UpdateVM to download updates for Dom0; this may take some time…
