I just did a dnf update on my f24 desktop. I saw new nvidia akmod
source get loaded from rpmfusion. After dnf finished the update, I watched
a bunch of c compiles, depmods, etc. being run by akmod.
After that all finished, I rebooted the system, and on the way
down, systemd got hung counting up to 1m 30s saying that
a stop job was running for Builds of akmods.
It looks like systemd wasn't aware that the build had already
finished. Is this an akmod bug of some kind?
Anyone know what systemd is looking at to make it wait on this?
I could add it to my script full of all sorts of things I manually
bash over the head to make systemd not wait on them :-). (Which
I run as part of my "reboot" alias).
A new machine and I have installed the rpmfusion nVidia akmods but xorg
is trying to load module "nv", not "nvidia" according the Xorg.0.log.
Where could the system be trying to load the nv driver instead of the
99-nvidia.conf exists and points to the correct module directories.
This may be the issue.
modprobe: modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'nvidia': Required key not
How do I add a key to nvidia to load the module?
I need secure boot configured on this machine for Windows 10 and gaming
as it is not my computer and will be configured as dual boot.
