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


any idea???

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
