stil no luck ?

u are on buster version right ?

do u use the RT = real time kernel or the normal one ?

if u are on RT , for as much i know there are no good source headers for this kernel, i had no luck to get nvidia pack to install on this kind of kernel...

if try to install the nvidia pack form the nvidia website don't forget to close your x.org driver with the root command "" init 3 "" and the try to install sh NVIDIA-470.10.run after this reboot.

That's not a bug, it's a feature! :mrgreen:

And anyway bw123 was perfectly polite, please get over yourself.

I'm on my Debian Jessie now, so i don't know what kernel I use. Its the kernel that comes with the installation of Debian Buster.

For some reason unknown I got it to work now. One thing i did was run "sudo update-glx --config glx" if that have something to so with it. The Debian install I installing the nvidia-driver on is just a test install to see what works and behave. I will install Debian again on my primary disk and then I will see if i can get it working.

From up to Debian Jessie I never had these problems. It has just been working. Usual way I installed them have been to install the nvidia-driver (nvidia-glx) then run nvidia-xconfig and that is that. Dunno what have changed.

I got tired to get this to work, so I took the opportunity to try another dist, but I thought the dist was buggy. So here I am again trying to get this to work.

I can get it to work if I remove xorg.conf. When having a xorg.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf I only have 2d graphics. If I remove xorg.conf I have 2d and 3d.

I wouldn't mind having xorg.conf removed, but I need to enable "Force Composition Pipeline" and that is something you need to set in xorg.conf.
I have googled my ass but hot finding a solution.

Is the xorg.conf needed to be in another folder than /etc/X11 or do i set my settings in another conf-file?

What method did you use to install Buster?
link to the (install.iso) file or Describe the install briefly

and show a list of nvidia packages you have installed

I might have solved this on my own, though, I don't know if it is the right way to do it. In my xorg.conf I deleted all except the "Section Screen".

So this is the only text I have in my xorg.conf:

Code: Select all
Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Device0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "Stereo" "0"
    Option         "nvidiaXineramaInfoOrder" "DFP-0"
    Option         "metamodes" "DVI-D-0: nvidia-auto-select +0+0 {ForceCompositionPipeline=On}, HDMI-1: nvidia-auto-select +1680+0"
    Option         "SLI" "Off"
    Option         "MultiGPU" "Off"
    Option         "BaseMosaic" "off"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
    EndSubSection
EndSection

Yes it does. Tried to play ut2004 and it is working fine. Don't think it is an ideal solution though.

If it works

you can always check the Xorg.0.log to see if it's showing an EE errors you think should be fixed

Didn't see your answer.
I installed from netinstall iso:
https://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/cu ... etinst.iso

Then I upgraded to Buster (editing sources.list)

I installed the nvidia drivers almost the first thing i did after upgrading to Buster.

These are the packages I have installed:

I edited my post not realizing you were online, no worries

nvidia-xconfig is deprecated since stretch replaced by nvidia-settings

nvidia-installer-cleanup is supposed to remove xserver-xorg-video-nvidia
which is still installed as shown in the list.

if it's working I wouldn't touch anything until ------
