I broke my graphics installing Nvidia over Nouveau

Postby dotrosedotnet » 2020-03-20 21:24

I was trying to get my T520 to work with external monitors, but I definitely borked it.

Can anybody lend a hand?

Here's the log from startx: http://ix.io/2eNl
Here's the my xorg.conf (generated by nvidia-xconfig): http://ix.io/2eNo

You haven't built the NVIDIA kernel module.

Don't use that, it's obsolete and broken.

Delete the configuration file and build the module. Use the nvidia-detect package to determine which driver version is needed for your card and use the module-assistant package to install all of the packages needed to build custom kernel modules.

Search the boards for more help, there have been *many* threads about this. I won't be posting in this thread again, I'm not even supposed to be helping NVIDIA users.
