NVIDIA Driver 390.48

If none of the more specific forums is the right place to ask

NVIDIA Driver 390.48

Postby ryankm » 2018-04-08 20:39

So after much work I found the .deb package of this driver to install...

The error I am getting is;

Dependency is not satisfiable:

nvidia-driver-libs(=390.48-1)|nvidia-driver-libs-nonglvnd
(= 390.48-1)

So where do I begin. I am running 375.82

I download the libs package for that driver and i can not install because it conflicts with existing ones.

You have provided no real information about what you're trying to do, or why you need the very latest version, but I suspect you are attempting to manually install upstream Debian Sid deb packages on Debian Stable. Is this the situation?

DON'T BREAK DEBIAN

You can get nvidia-driver 384.111 from stretch-backports if you need a driver that is known to be compatible.

One of my games crashes in STEAM and I'd just like to get the latest driver working anyway,Vulkan ; pretty cool. That is what I am trying to do. I also don't want to mess up the entire system and have to wipe.

Granted this system is only one day old...

Last time I tried a backport install, I got this message; where it was like...
You must enter: Yes, Do as I say; to continue, and that screwed everything up.

The OP should answer this in a straight forward clear way,
What version of Debian are you actually using ?

Have you tried the stretch-backports version instead? It works fine in MX Linux 17.1, which is Stretch-based, so we have it in the main MX 17 repo now.

I added the backports to the source list and updated. It was unable to locate it.

Not surprising, the package is called nvidia-driver.

You can check if a package is available and its status with apt policy.

It is advised to follow set up your system to build the drivers first. You can do this by installing module-assistant and running as root or with sudo:

Code: Select all
m-a prepare


It's a good idea to look at the Debian wiki for the correct way to install the drivers, too. That'll give you the correct package names. Usually we won't have to wait too long for the newer drivers to make their way into backports, either. Maybe a couple of weeks or so.

i haven't gotten sudo to work correctly for me yet. I always get you have entered the incorrect password.

I just saw this in the wiki for installing nvidia drivers:

Building newer releases from SVN

... Back to the backpors...

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
nvidia-driver : Depends: xserver-xorg-video-nvidia (= 384.111-3~bpo9+1) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Usually that means you have damaged your system by adding incompatible repositories or force-installing incompatible deb packages. Backports are supposed to be compatible, though.

You don't need sudo if you have root. Perhaps you did not set up sudo during the install.

install inxi and give us the result of

Code: Select all
inxi -r

apt policy xserver-xorg-video-nvidia

What password are you using ?, Sometimes people make the mistake of thinking it should be roots password, and that is wrong, it should be the users pass word, assuming the user is in the sudoers group.
https://wiki.debian.org/sudo
and https://manpages.debian.org/man/8/visudo has more details.
But really you don't need "sudo", any way, as all ready mentioned "su" and roots password should work.

Did you create a root password when you installed Debian? You must have, to install any packages.

Use it then with
Code: Select all
su -c 'm-a prepare'
You can use su -c instead of sudo--make sure to enclose the following command in single quotes if it has spaces.
