Backporting nvidia driver with i386 libs on a 64 bit system

Postby toquinho » 2021-01-12 22:58

Hello!

I experience irregular random freezes with different xids on my system with an nvidia graphics card. I am running buster with the backported driver 450.80.02. (I need the backport to run a proprietary numerics solver.) I came across the following bug report:
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=979573

Although the reported bug seems only to occur for driver Version 455 and not for 450, I would like to try the "fix" proposed in the post, which is to upgrade to Version 460. I got the package sources for Version 460 from the dsc file for Debian Experimental
http://deb.debian.org/debian/pool/non-free/n/nvidia-graphics-drivers/nvidia-graphics-drivers_460.27.04-1.dsc
and backported them to buster by following the instructions here:
https://wiki.debian.org/SimpleBackportCreation

This builds the amd64 packages without problems. (I have not tested them yet.) As I need to run an old OpenGL 32-bit application under wine, I also need to install the 32-bit libraries. Would a 32bit chroot be the best way to build the packages with the 32bit libraries? Will the original nvidia-installer from the nvidia website install the 32bit libraries, too? (I prefer installing the driver via apt, though.)

Best regards,

Toquinho

Yes, I do the MX backports for i386 in pbuilder, or sbuilder if the build fails in pbuilder.

Building them on the OpenSUSE Build Service is another option.
