greetings,

im runnning stretch

Linux carlos 4.10.0-35-generic #39~16.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Sep 13 09:02:42 UTC 2017 x86_64 GNU/Linux


After changing the gpu to a 1060, i had problems with nouveau (blackscreen), so i decided to install the nvidia driver. With a Ubuntu system i had no problems at all, but on my debian it is the horror.

At first i went with this tutorial

https://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers

but after reboot i go a black screen. After that i tried different tutorials and sources like

apt install linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's/[^-]*-[^-]*-//') nvidia-driver


apt install firmware-linux nvidia-driver nvidia-settings nvidia-xconfig



the run from the nvidia website was no success cause first i hard to blacklist the nvidia_drm, after this it found pieces of older installations, the uninstaller could't delete all, with

apt purge nvidia*


i didnt work either.

After reboot sometimes i got a black screen, with nomodeset i reached the console but cant start x. Log says either

The xorg.conf i created with nvidia-xconfig is nealry the same as the one at the running ubuntu system.
Installing nvidia-kernel-dkms didn't work on my problems.

i'm out of options and knowledge, if you got any solutions, i'd really appreciate some help :)

(much technosorrow due to the Ubuntu kernel headers not being available and the user ignoring the error messages deleted)



Not with that Ubuntu kernel, you're not. Use the Debian kernel and repositories, and it should work.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Notepadqq 1.2.0, Pale Moon 27.9.0, KeePassXC 2.3.1, Calligra 3.1, VLC 3.0.1, Firefox 59.0.2, Shotwell 28.2
