Debian 10 supported Nvidia cards.

Postby bryanmc » 2019-08-23 14:16

I'm thinking about installing an Nvidia 750ti in my Debian 10 machine. A quick search on here shows that someone installed this card with the legacy driver (in accordance with NVIDIA-legacy-detect) but another person added that nvidia-legacy-detect was wrong and )it would work with the nvidia-driver package (418.74-1). Further digging hasn't uncovered an answer one way or another and the wiki doesn't have buster info yet. Is there a list anywhere of the cards supported by nvidia-driver like the one for the legacy package anywhere? I suppose I could just install the card and see what happens but if someone has the answer it could conceivably save me some time and trouble.

I have an Nvidia 750 ti and the nvidia-driver package (418.74-1) works fine.

Stretch updated the driver in non-free quite a few times, so if Buster does the same thing, the answer may change in the future.

Just an update. Finally got time to install the 750ti. Machine restarted and card ran fine with the previously installed legacy-390xx driver. Ran nvidia-detect which indicated the card should run with the 418.xx driver. Installed the 4.18 driver and rebooted. Card is performing as it should.
