hello comunity,

i have a problem with my nvidia dirver: i have two pci cards:

nvidia detect
-bash: nvidia: command not found
erickma@erickma:~$ nvidia-detect
Detected NVIDIA GPUs:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GF119 [NVS 310] [10de:107d] (rev a1)
04:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GF119 [NVS 310] [10de:107d] (rev a1)

Checking card: NVIDIA Corporation GF119 [NVS 310] (rev a1)
Your card is supported by all driver versions.
It is recommended to install the
nvidia-driver
package.

so i follow the debian wiki nvidia driver

i have updated the sourcelist:
deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/ stretch main contrib non-free


and the install linux headers and driver:


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

after rebooting it says a screen:

Oh no! Something has gone wrong

i can see only this log:

Sep 27 11:16:22 erickma gnome-session-binary[615]: WARNING: software acceleration check failed: Child process exited with code 1

check that headers and kernel are same ver, and driver built with no errors. check that nvidia driver is being used when x starts.

also, found a lot of hits when search internet for "gnome-session-binary[615]: WARNING: software acceleration check failed: Child process exited" did you read any of them?

found this also, suggests adding gdm3 to video group

sedheads think it's the bomb, they use it everywhere, but is it really a good idea to use something so complicated for something so simple?
Code: Select all
$ uname -r|sed 's/[^-]*-[^-]*-//'
amd64
$ echo linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's/[^-]*-[^-]*-//')
linux-headers-amd64


See, that will install headers, but no guarantee that they are the headers for the kernel currently being used.

To install the headers use
Code: Select all
# apt install module-assistant
# m-a prepare

Apparently an Xorg configuration file is no longer needed for the proprietary NVIDIA drivers so try removing it if you have one.

Perhaps post a link to the entire Xorg log, somebody might be bored enough to check it for you.

The $4M question is this: why do you need the proprietary driver? Nouveau works very well these days. Gamers, really, are the only ones who need Nvidia's driver for a competitive edge. Why fix it if it ain't broke?

You also did not mention installing any compilers (build-essential), which are...essential.
Module-assistant will make sure you have them.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Foliate 1.5.3, Minitube 3.1, wine-staging 4.12, Virtual Box 5.2.32 & 6.0.10, Pale Moon 28.6.1, Waterfox 56.2.12

Since a dual 310's is not exactly a gamers solution, nouveau should be the driver of choice. But 2? For 4 monitors maybe on a trader station?

I do know nouveau will not grab both cards as default. You will need a manual xorg configuration for two cards, and I hope that hasn't changed. I have ran a 310 as a third card.
