I have installed AlmaLinux 9 on my workstation. I know that I should
wait until x.2 minor but if anyone wonn't test since first releases no
bugs will be discovered.
First problem: I'm not able to install nvidia driver (from nvidia.com)
using dkms. I tried the latest driver and the previous one running under
8.6. Actually I'm running nouveau driver. I got this error:
"DKMS make.log for nvidia-510.54 for kernel 5.14.0-70.13.1.el9_0.x86_64

It is recommended to set the CC environment variable
to the compiler that was used to compile the kernel.
The compiler version check can be disabled by setting
the IGNORE_CC_MISMATCH environment variable to "1".
However, mixing compiler versions between the kernel
and kernel modules can result in subtle bugs that are
difficult to diagnose.

Anyone encountered this issue and solved? Running gcc --version I get
11.2.1. How could the kernel be compiled with a newer gcc version? it
was build running CentOS Stream? I don't know. I checked for update but
there are not available upgrade.
Second issue is related to libvirt. All my VMs were using spice and QXL
but EL9 deprecates spice and QXL. So to solve the problem I did imported
all my old VMs. No problem here just more work. I noticed that
/etc/sysconfig/ files libvirtd and libvirt-guests are not more
available. I always used them to config "start on boot" shutdown
parallel vms or shutdown timeout. Where I can set this option in EL9?
I don't know if the following is an issue, but running dnf module list I
can't get appstream (it is empty). I think it is normal because EL9 is a
young release but I excpected to see at least the default release with
Thank you in advance.
To AlmaLinux Team: great job!
