nvidia GTX 980 Ti: Wrong resolution on fresh install

Postby quadgun » 2017-04-04 02:31

Installed Debian this night and the resolution is wrong

Available resolutions are only up to 1024x768

Graphics card: Nvidia GTX 980 Ti

I need the resolution to be 1920x1080, preferably without installing the proprietary drivers. How can I do that?

If that card dates from after Debian 8's 2014 freeze date, the open driver has very little chance of supporting it. Your option are:

1: The proprietary driver.
2: Trying the next Debian in testing, Stretch.
3: Backporting or finding a backport of a newer nouveau (open) driver that supports your card.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.0.4, Pale Moon 27.2.1, Liquorix kernel 4.10-2, mpv 0.24, Kodi 17.1, Ksnip 1.3.1, Mesa 13.0.6
