No regression noted (running for a few hours only, in a VBox VM). Passed default regression test.

I am sure it has been reported already a million times, but NVIDIA mod akmod-nvidia-390xx.x86_64 is still broken in 5.9.8 and 5.9.9. This is pretty major as it renders the computer basically unusable after update. Do you know when this will be fixed, or it still depend on NVIDIA guys ?

Cheers, Simone

@tysimon While it is indeed dependent on nVidia folks to support upstream stable kernels, the last I heard was that graphics were working find with 5.9.x kernels, but CUDA was broken. Unfortunate, but hardly "unusable". That said, I believe nVidia drivers are at 455.45 versions, and 390xx is pretty out of date.

@jforbes thank you for your reply, that gives me hope. My perfectly excellent ThinkPad T540p i7 needs driver 390xx to run GEFORCE GT 730M, which according to their Wiki, is still supported on the main Kernel. Now that you tell me that support for "current" 455.45 is OK, it gives me hope for 390xx soon. I am also holding back upgrading Fedora to 33 because of this, I don't wanna get caught in the middle with an unusable system, as my Fedora station is my daily working station. Cheers man, thank you.

Just for completeness, this is the best document I found explaining all: https://rpmfusion.org/Howto/NVIDIA

Current GeForce/Quadro/Tesla [LATEST DRIVER] Supported on current stable Xorg server release. This driver is suitable for any GPU found in 2012 and later.

Legacy GeForce 400/500 [390xx DRIVER] Supported on current stable Xorg server release. This driver is suitable for any NVIDIA Fermi GPU found between 2010 and 2012

Legacy GeForce 8/9/200/300 [340xx DRIVER] Supported on current stable Xorg server release. EOL by NVIDIA at the end of 2019. Still available on "best effort basis" (newer kernel may break, will be discontinued at anytime if not actively maintained)

So if any of you have a case like this, you better check before upgrading the kernel.

Cheers, Simone
