Hello there,

 

I could not start the installation with Fedora, so I used Mageia not without some issues.

 

So I went to the NVIDIA website for the latest drivers: https://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk

 

Take care.

Use the link I gave before to download the driver. The latest (02/2019) for Quadro P2000 is called "NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-418.43.run". You just need to run it from shell and answer a few options. Alternatively, you can start temporarily in single user mode to execute it.

For what it's worth, the built-in nouveau driver works very well in Fedora 32. Otherwise, RPMFusion has built the nvidia drivers which worked pretty well in the past.  I think you can click "enable third-party add-ons" button to enable access to the driver.

My recommendation is to try Fedora32 - it's working really nicely on my P1G2. There were some nouveau driver fixes that went into the release

 

As mentioned above installing the proprietary drivers (if that is what you want) is pretty simple on Fedora - see the attached file for instructions. As an aside - if you try the instructions let me know how it goes and if there are any issues or improvements that can be made :)
