Which graphics cards have the best driver support on Fedora?

You only have 3 options when it comes to GPUs on PCs: Intel, nVidia, and AMD (ATI). Intel has the best graphics support you don't have to install anything, however, performance wise intel GPUs are not the best but are good for low-mid 3D needs. For high-ends needs it is nvidia or AMD, but I find nVidia's support to be much better than AMD, the performance of the open source driver is good and the closed one works great most of the time. While I had many issues with my other computer which had an AMD card.

nVidia's support to be much better than AMD

"Oops, something went wrong"

After boot, the proprietary drivers from RPM Fusion brought up that white screen with this error on my first RPM Fusion install with Fedora 21/22.

I resolved it by doing the following immediately after a clean install:

sudo dnf update


Configure RPM Fusion. http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration/

sudo dnf install kernel-devel


Install the correct package for your NVIDIA driver version. I included the 32-bit libraries because I use Steam. So my commands were:

dnf install akmod-nvidia-340xx xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-340xx-libs.i686


Upon reboot, you will probably get the " Oops, something went wrong.." message. That's okay, just do the following:

Hold CTRL + ALT + F2 to drop to terminal. Then login. From there do these commands:

akmods --force

You will see akmods detect the new kernel and compile the NVIDIA drivers for it. From there:


You should now be able to reboot using your NVIDIA drivers.When doing this process again after upgrading to Fedora 23, I found that you don't actually have to reboot in between installing the different bits. I installed kernel-devel, akmod, and ran akmods --force all in the same session, and then rebooted so I could start using the new drivers, and there wasn't any error message during boot.
