[EN] My card is not supported by nvidia driver
« on: 2022/10/14, 09:47:20 »
Hello
I have a GeForce GT 730 and with the last nvidia driver is not supported anymore see:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1XBbcwzYcJjBmKM3zwq_fguwZSJ0-Qv6d/view?usp=sharing 
Therefore, I should use the legacy driver.
What is the proper procedure to install the legacy driver
Thank you

Moin,

I went to console:
Code: [Select]
sudo systemctl stop sddm.serviceI purged all nvidia:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt remove --purge *nvidia*I install nvidia legacy:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install nvidia-legacy-390xx-driverI rebooted:
Code: [Select]
sudo reboot
That's what I did

Regard dsat

And it will fail with

a) kernel >= 6.0
b) a new Xorg

siduction and old hardware is not the best team.

Thank you both
If you see the message in the pic it suggest to install the legacy nvidia-tesla-470-driver.
What do you suggest me to do?

I'm running a pure debian sid with kernel 5.19

System:
  Host: main Kernel: 5.19.0-2-amd64 arch: x86_64 bits: 64 Console: pty pts/3
    Distro: Debian GNU/Linux bookworm/sid
Graphics:
  Device-1: NVIDIA GK208B [GeForce GT 720] driver: nvidia v: 390.154
  Display: x11 server: X.Org v: 1.21.1.4 driver: X: loaded: nvidia
    unloaded: fbdev,modesetting,nouveau,vesa gpu: nvidia
    resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz
  OpenGL: renderer: GeForce GT 720/PCIe/SSE2 v: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 390.154

Tesla 470 also did it for me. As I do not use challenging graphic applications I did not notice differences betweeen both drivers.

@towo thanks for the hint with upcoming kernel 6.0

Thank you
I will try the Tesla driver that was also suggested by the system.
I don't need high performance card. Apart from video card the rest system is very powerful although I cannot run at full speed the 64GB RAM.

Moin,
