Known Issues

  • The nouveau driver bundled with Fedora kernel 4.7.2 currently doesn’t work with Nvidia GTX 970 GPUs due to a bug introduced in Linux kernel 4.6. This bug affects Chapeau 24 as it does Fedora 24 Workstation.
    If your system uses an Nvidia GTX 970 graphics processor the live image should be booted with ‘basic graphics mode’ (Choose [Troubleshooting] > [Run in basic graphics mode] at the boot menu). After installing Chapeau from a ‘basic graphics mode’ live session, the new installation will also boot into basic graphics mode.
    Once booted into this new installation install the proprietary Nvidia graphics to enable full support for your GTX 970 by running the following in a terminal;

    sudo dnf -y install chapeau-nvidia-current

Enjoy Chapeau 24!
