Fedora 23 packages now live

All the repositories have been updated for Fedora 23, so if you trigger an update, everything should update properly. CUDA enabled programs are still building.

A few notes:

  • HandBrake has been updated to a pre-release of 1.0 for Fedora 23. Updated x264/x265/FFmpeg libraries should give a speed bost to all encoding operations.
  • The Spotify 0.9.x repository has been removed. It will never receive updates anymore, and now the 1.x builds are on feature parity, including 32 bit support. If you haven’t upgraded, just do it now.
  • Nvidia drivers version 358.09 do not yet support X.org driver ABI 20, so you’re probably going to have some lock ups or random issues.
  • The SteamOS and X-Box replacement driver have been updated to the latest upstream.

Please let me know if you have any upgrade issue.

    1. I’ve seen that yesterday, but they just post the hidden binary tarball and nothing else. Here is the “release folder”:

      ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/

      I need the following for packaging:

      – Binary makeself files for armv7hl, x86_64, i386
      – Source packages for nvidia-settings, nvidia-xconfig, nvidia-modprobe, nvidia-persistenced

      Until all they are there I can’t package them.

      1. I’ve downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-358.13.run, and installed and tested it. However, it is not 100% stable. My impression is that 358.13 is still in BETA quality.

        Thus I downloaded and installed the NVIDIA 352.63 package file. Luckily, 352.63 runs fine on Fedora 23.

        I guess it takes more time till the 358xx Linux branch settles down and be ready. It might not be a bad idea to offer 352xx or other stable Nvidia drives for Fedora 23 in your repo.

        Thanks.

      2. look like the ftp site now contain the 358.16 driver components.

        that’s the perfect driver for fedora 23.

        thanks for the good work 🙂

    1. I’ve built the packages, along with other changes and updates, but those are only for the CentOS/RHEL 6/7 branches. Fedora 21/22 use the 355.xx branch and Fedora 23 the 358.xx branch.
      Nvidia also released 340.96 and 304.xx with ABI 20 support, so we probably just need to wait a bit more.

  1. Steam is crashing for me gdb shows an OpenSSL error, is this known?

    Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
    0xf62539b5 in OPENSSL_ia32_cpuid () from /lib/libcrypto.so.10

    Thanks,

  2. Thanks for a great Nvidia repo!

    I have a question. I have a multi-boot Linux box, and sometimes I have to run “grub2-mkconfig” manually after updating kernels of other distrubutions (Fedora 23 is the distribution to control GRUB2 booting.)

    But after installing Nvidia dirver from your repo, “grub2-mkconfig” DOES NOT correctly insert GRUB2 arguments in “grub.cfg”.

    For example, after installing the Nvidia driver from your depo, arguments like

    “nouveau.modeset=0 rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau nomodeset gfxpayload=vga=normal”

    have been added to “grub.cfg”. But if I manually run “grub2-mkconfig” afterwards, no such arguments added and my Fedora 23 becomes un-bootable unless I manually edit the GRUB2 arguments.

    Is there a method to fix this?

    Thank you.

  3. If I understood correctly, as explained by RPMFusion, the latest nvidia drivers are not built for the upstream X11 version of F23: http://rpmfusion.org/Howto/nVidia#Installing_the_drivers

    They suggest to downgrade the X11 version like this:

    # dnf downgrade xorg-x11-server\* –releasever=22 –allowerasing
    # echo “exclude=xorg-x11*” >> /etc/dnf/dnf.conf

    Doing that made all random crashes/freezes disappear on my Fedora 23, when using the latest proprietary nvidia drivers from the negativo17 repo.

  4. I’m having trouble with handbrake capturing to mkv with subtitles. Everything worked fine on F22. If I switch to MPEG-4 or remove the subtitles, everything works fine.

    [matroska @ 0x7fd19cf10ae0] Using AVStream.codec.time_base as a timebase hint to the muxer is deprecated. Set AVStream.time_base instead.

    1. I’ve just pushed an update for Fedora 23. Can you try it? Otherwise I will try to update to the same version for Fedora 22 tomorrow.

    1. I’m currently travelling, I will update them through the weekend along with the latest packaging enhancements from the 358.x branch.
      Don’t expect anything spectacular, as there is no support for X.org 1.18 nor kernel 4.2 in the legacy drivers, I don’t even know if it works.

    2. Hi Marco

      I am in the same situation as you with my GT 240! Let us hope the update over the weekend works. Right now I have a 1970 ‘s style text based Unix!

    3. This has been done. The nvidia-340 repository hosting 340.xx drivers has been updated to the latest 340.96 supporting Fedora 23 and some packaging improvements backported from the 358.xx branch.

  5. I was getting a lot of crashes with F23 and the current drivers. Downgrading xorg to 1.17 fixed the problems for me.

    sudo dnf –releasever=22 downgrade xorg-x11-server-Xorg –allowerasing

  6. Any ETA on an updated repo for legacy nVidia drivers? I know the ABI issues are present there too, but I’ve experienced a lockup once already with mesa/nouveau so I doubt it’ll be worse.

    1. same trouble, if i click blindly and type my password i connect to my session and i got ejected from it after a minute, strange!

      Another trouble, during the update to f23 it did stop being unable to install the kernel-devel package and impossible to do it from command line.

      i was force to remove all kernel-devel , re-install the last one , finish the upgrade and install again the nvidia-drivers.

      this upgrade procedure of f23 is buggy for the proprietary nvidia driver.

  7. One of my Steam games doesn’t start after upgrading to Fedora 23:

    /home/xxxxx/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/RunningWithRifles/rwr_game: symbol lookup error: /lib/libGL.so.1: undefined symbol: xcb_unregister_for_special_event

    Any ideas?
