Nothing especially. Just always do the "aptitude-safe upgrade" when it needed. :)

But now I'm on Linux Mint 18.2 Xfce, as I mentioned before.

I'm not a newbie, and I'm continue using Debian, but on servers. On desktop I see the Mint better than Debian. :)

Yes, of course, you are not a newbie, but can't find 375 driver version in Debian backports...very ridiculous.

What? Why find?? I just read and did all step by step what I found on the official nvidia-debian site - especially the Version 375.66 (via jessie-backports). Every command run without any problem or error message. And after I just reboot, and got the black screen without any error message or anything. And yes, I tried it after clean installation of the system too. But didn't work. But thanks for your helping... I think you didn't understand my problem. And please stop trolling here with me.

I'm back again on Debian for desktop too... :) Now with Debian 9 Xfce, this is working perfect with the newest driver. I was very sad with Jessie, but I think this was a good step. Thanks again, who wanted to help me. :)
