Geforce 1050ti Driver issues.

I have a fresh install of GNOME desktop & dev tools. I'm attempting to install MSI Geforce1050 ti video card. I'm attempting to load the drivers via Elrepo.
I keep getting this error. I've tried a bunch of google-fu. I'm getting nowhere.
Can someone please point me in the correct direction. Thank you.

Your /boot partition is full. Quickest fix is to remove old kernels.

and for a more permanent fix, I edited /etc/yum.conf and changed the installonly_limit=3 instead of the default 5.

Note that this change does NOT immediately clean out old kernels; that auto 'cleanout' happens when a new kernel is installed during a future 'yum update'.

Or when you run package-cleanup --oldkernels --count 3

I'm not sure this worked.

No old Kernels to remove?? Should I change my .ks file to make the /boot partition bigger?
Thanks for reading.

I modified the Kickstart file to increase the /boot partition from 200mb to 800mb. Started a fresh install. Let's see how this bad dude works.

Still not working. Now I'm getting this set of warnings for the install.

Code: Select all

yum install $(nvidia-detect)
WARNING: Xorg log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log does not exist
WARNING: Unable to determine Xorg ABI compatibility
WARNING: The driver for this device does not support the current Xorg version


Thank you for reading.

Well, if you just did an install and followed that with a yum update then you'll only have 2 installed so package-cleanup --oldkernels --count 3 won't do anything as that command says to leave 3 kernels installed.

This info. While good to know. Doesn't help me much.

While trying to run, yum install $(nvidia-detect). I get the following errors.

Code: Select all

yum install $(nvidia-detect)
WARNING: Xorg log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log does not exist
WARNING: Unable to determine Xorg ABI compatibility
WARNING: The driver for this device does not support the current Xorg version


If anyone could point me in the correct direction for required reading, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you for reading.

I managed to get the driver installed without error.
The following is the #1 google result when trying to google-fu this problem.
https://elrepo.org/bugs/view.php?id=426
I read this over several times. I took it to mean, this had been modified. Removing the need to start Xorg before installing the driver. So I never tried running xorg before the install. I ran startx and then did a reboot. The driver slipped right in. :lol:

A little confusing. But moving forward.
Thank you to everyone who posted. I'd be nowhere without this forum.
