it would be good if release of the 5.9er could wait until the updated driver is available.

And here is the problem, no one knows, if there will such driver available in short time.
I'm not willing to hold back kernel 5.9 only because nvidia blob is not working.
Kernel 5.9 has too important functions that I want or can withhold it for all others.

Ich verstehe.

Please, can we have a warning when 5.9 is about to be released, so we can do the pinning?

Thank you.

I imagine everyone has noticed  towo 5.9 kernels have been working with nvidia just shortly after this. I'm up to 5.9.11 now.

"Working" -- yes, but with no CUDA, as I learned on this thread:

Not exactly right, the driver 455.45.01 works indeed fully on kernel 5.9, now even with cuda.
You can find this driver in debian/experimental.

Well ... hmmmmmmm. I installed 455.45.01 this morning, and checked for the nvidia-uvm module.  No nvidia-uvm.  My hardware is only a few years old -- but maybe it doesn't support cuda.  Thanks.

You could look, in the dkms.conf if the uvm-module is activated there.

I think it is activated, but maybe something is not working correctly.  Here are the modules in dkms.conf:

Code: [Select]
BUILT_MODULE_NAME[0]="nvidia"
DEST_MODULE_NAME[0]="$PACKAGE_NAME"
DEST_MODULE_LOCATION[0]="/updates/dkms"

BUILT_MODULE_NAME[1]="nvidia-modeset"
DEST_MODULE_NAME[1]="$PACKAGE_NAME-modeset"
DEST_MODULE_LOCATION[1]="/updates/dkms"

BUILT_MODULE_NAME[2]="nvidia-drm"
DEST_MODULE_NAME[2]="$PACKAGE_NAME-drm"
DEST_MODULE_LOCATION[2]="/updates/dkms"

BUILT_MODULE_NAME[3]="nvidia-uvm"
DEST_MODULE_NAME[3]="$PACKAGE_NAME-uvm"
DEST_MODULE_LOCATION[3]="/updates/dkms"

And here is the output of the search for nvidia modules:

Code: [Select]
don@dibl-patience:~$ lsmod | grep nvidia
nvidia_drm             57344  6
drm_kms_helper        258048  1 nvidia_drm
nvidia_modeset       1220608  17 nvidia_drm
nvidia              28286976  1018 nvidia_modeset
drm                   618496  9 drm_kms_helper,nvidia_drm

My hardware:

Code: [Select]
Graphics:  Device-1: NVIDIA GP106 [GeForce GTX 1060 6GB] driver: nvidia v: 455.45.01
           Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.9 driver: nvidia resolution: 1: 1920x1200~60Hz 2: 1920x1080~60Hz
           OpenGL: renderer: GeForce GTX 1060 6GB/PCIe/SSE2 v: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 455.45.01

Was it build?

modinfo nvidia-uvm

It is not loaded by default, it will be loaded, if you fire up a application, which use cuda.

I don't think I have any application that uses cuda -- that's for serious games, correct?

I have not seen any error in any package while working in KDE/Plasma.

No not serious games, its more used for things like machine learning or video encoding.  For example if you want to user blender or davinci resolve you need cuda.  Playing games works fine.
