This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-install-the-nvidia-drivers-on-centos-7-linux
I finally managed to install the NVidia drivers but I had a few problems. Firstly my NVidia driver installation failed due to having the wrong package. I tried to reboot and couldn’t as the XOrg configuration was messed up.To fix it I needed to go into rescue mode and uninstalling the NVidia driver was the key to fixing it
sudo bash NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-*.run --uninstall
Then I had the driver installed but it wouldn’t let me run nvidia-settings. The grub entry had nomodeset on it. So I removed that and now everything seems ok.
Maybe you could add this to the article?
