Instalar Driver Nvidia en Fendora 16

This is guide, howto install nVidia proprietary drivers on Fedora 16 and disable Nouveau driver. This guide works with GeForce 6/7/8/9/200/300 series cards.

Once again Fedora 16 nVidia driver installation is not much different from previous Fedora versions. I have tested this guide with a couple computers, so let me know, if you have some problems.

Install nVidia proprietary drivers on Fedora 16 “Verne” and disable the nouveau driver

1. Change root user
su -
## OR ##
sudo -i

2. Make sure that you are running latest kernel
If not then update kernel and reboot

yum update kernel*

3. Add RPMFusion Repositories (Free and Non-Free)

32-bit and 64-bit

rpm -Uvh
rpm -Uvh

4. Install nVidia proprietary drivers for GeForce 6/7/8/9/200/300/400/500 series cards

Select akmod, kmod or kmod-PAE from following.


yum install akmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs



yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs


kmod-nvidia-PAE and PAE-kernel devel

yum install kernel-PAE-devel kmod-nvidia-PAE

kmod is good option and easy way avoid problems on kernel updates and is best and only option if you use:

self-compiled kernel
older Fedora kernel
quickly changing kernels from updates-testing/rawhide
Full spec of kmod and akmod differences, check this.

5. Remove / disable nouveau drivers from kernel initramfs

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

6. All is done and then just reboot
