There has been a kernel change of some sort.  The driver needs to be updated to match the kernel.

You will not get this driver to build on any newer kernels.

So realistically, my only practical choice is what Todd suggested, "to just switch to the stuff Nvidia provides directly"?

Unless there's a hope of the rpmfusion package getting updated, it looks like it.  I'm not really familiar with akmods, but maybe you could just update the source somehow.

I'm not a systems administrator.  I need someone to step me through the full switch in detail.
This is a dual boot (Fedora-38 and windows-7) stand-alone work station; it's 11 years old.
I have only one old kernel, and no rescue kernel.
The graphics card is an nvidia GeForce GTX 660.
(anything else?)

I have two systems affected by this, and have posted about it on the rpmfusion and fedora-kde lists.  I'm having trouble accessing the rpmfusion archive, so maybe a comment here is in order.

Both systems have GeForce GT 710 cards.  This is low-spec, not for gamers, and I've been using the rpmfusion 470xx drivers for years.  I upgraded from F38 to F39 around 2 weeks ago.

AIUI we are moving from X11 graphics towards Wayland, which the nvidia driver will not support; but nouveau might.  So I've been trying it.

On one box it's working acceptably, with VGA nad HDMI screens. Single-boot F39.

The other box is dual-boot with Windows 10.  I can boot into Fedora only with 'nomodeset', when I get a single screen HDMI 800x600 which seems fine but limited.  I can run MythTV frontend with --geometry 720x504+40+20

The biggest worry is getting past a frozen boot, so I don't want to make any recommendations.  I have removed all the *nvidia* rpms except nvidia-gpu-firmware, and installed nouveau-firmware from the rpmfusion-nonfree-tainted repo.

Maybe the rpmfusion team will make the old system work soon, or maybe the even-older but just-updated 340xx driver would work.  I'll try living with what I have for now.

After kernel and firmware updates today the behaviour of both systems, using nouveau, seems essentially unchanged from the report above. kernel now is 6.8.5-201.fc39.x86-64

If the 'nomodeset' is edited out in grub, a reboot of the dual-boot box still hangs almost immediately.

I've removed the claim that mythleanfront works with mythbackend on the dual-boot box. I think that was mistaken, and a local permissions issue.
