Install Nvidia Driver On CentOS 7.1

I’m trying to install the nvidia driver on CentOS 7.1. I see instructions to remove nouveau and disable the kernel module. When I create this file and put this options in:

disable-nouveau.conf

blacklist nouveau options nouveau modeset=0

and reboot, and run the nvidia installer again, it says nouveau kernel driver is installed. How do I disable the nouveau kernel driver in 7.1? Is it different than in 7.0?

Thanks,

  • What instructions? If you use the nvidia drivers from elrepo.org, it will automatically set up the xorg and kernel command line config.

  • I used this to start:

    sudo yum install epel-release

    but yum list|grep nvidia doesn’t show anything in epel.

    | EPEL is not elrepo …

    You can also use the CUDA repo to get the latest nVidia drivers. Both ELRepo and CUDA set the values for you.

  • Yes. I’m looking at that site now and added it and now I’m getting several items with yum list|grep nvidia.

  • Thanks all for the nvidia tips (especially elrepo.org). I have the nvidia driver installed and working on 7.1!

  • Yes, once you have the elrepo repository configured, the general procedure is:

    yum install nvidia-detect

    then:

    yum install $(nvidia-detect)

    then reboot and you should be good to go :-)

    The second command will automatically install the correct nvidia driver packages for your device.
