You're right. Fortunately, I only made that typo on here, not in my terminal.

you could cleanse yourself


Sadly, this graphics card doesn't seem to like Nouveau very much. It won't wake up from sleep.


:?: :?: :?: Look at the inxi output. You're using the nouveau driver. I don't know how that's set up with the nvidia-driver packages installed, since those should have blacklisted nouveau automatically...what does nvidia-check say about what driver you should be using?

The output of "inxi -r" to show your software sources might also be very enlightening.

Look at the inxi output. You're using the nouveau driver.


I was at that time, while my system was still partially broken. Then I reinstalled the Nvidia drivers as per the debian manual - I mentioned that in a later post.

The output of "inxi -r" to show your software sources might also be very enlightening.


You're right, it might be. Especially seeing as I'm sure I installed the Nvidia drivers as per the manual in the first place, and the update where the mess occurred included upgrades to Nvidia packages. So here it is:
Code: Select all
$ inxi -r

           deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib
           deb-src http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib
           deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main contrib non-free
           deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main contrib non-free

           deb-src http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main contrib non-free
           deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian stretch-backports main contrib non-free
           Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/base.list
           deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stretch main
           Active apt sources in file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/wire-desktop.list
           deb https://wire-app.wire.com/linux/debian stable main


Any evidence that Dr Frankendebian is in the house? (I only installed Wire yesterday, so those two lines at the end were not present when I had the problem.)

FWIW, my current output of inxi -G is:

Code: Select all
$ inxi -G
Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA GP107 [GeForce GTX 1050]
           Display Server: X.Org 1.19.2 drivers: nvidia (unloaded: modesetting,fbdev,vesa,nouveau)
           Resolution: 1920x1080@60.00hz
           GLX Renderer: GeForce GTX 1050/PCIe/SSE2
           GLX Version: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 390.67


Incidentally, I only have two groups of packages installed from backports: the Nvidia drivers and Audacity.
