Currently, d-u seems to break nvidia, system is dropping me to text console.
So probably better to wait a bit on systems with nvidia card.
Trying to reinstall nvidia-driver gives complaint about missing / outdated firmware file.

Code: [Select]

apt install nvidia-driver
Paketlisten werden gelesen…
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut…
Statusinformationen werden eingelesen…
Einige Pakete konnten nicht installiert werden. Das kann bedeuten, dass
Sie eine unmögliche Situation angefordert haben oder, wenn Sie die
Unstable-Distribution verwenden, dass einige erforderliche Pakete noch
nicht erstellt wurden oder Incoming noch nicht verlassen haben.
Die folgenden Informationen helfen Ihnen vielleicht, die Situation zu lösen:

Die folgenden Pakete haben unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten:
 nvidia-kernel-dkms : Hängt ab von: firmware-nvidia-gsp (= 535.146.02) oder
                                     firmware-nvidia-gsp-535.146.02 ist aber nicht installierbar

As of yesterday, nvidia-driver 535.xxx and its dependencies were not complete (nvidia-kernel-dkms "held back"). So you need to stay with 525. If you're using the siduction "fixes" repo, don't use contrib and non-free at this time (or just comment out "fixes" for now,

What's the problem with nvidia-driver?

with
Code: [Select]
deb https://packages.siduction.org/fixes/ unstable main contrib non-free non-free-firmware
it installs fine.

I have

nvidia-detect/siduction,now 535.146.02-0siduction1 amd64 [installed]
nvidia-installer-cleanup/unstable,now 20240109+1 amd64 [installed,automatic]
nvidia-kernel-common/unstable,now 20240109+1 amd64 [installed,automatic]
nvidia-modprobe/unstable,now 535.54.03-1 amd64 [installed,automatic]

but

nvidia-persistenced/unstable,now 525.85.05-1+b1 amd64 [installed,automatic]

and most of it is tesla-470

nvidia-tesla-470-kernel-dkms/unstable,now 470.223.02-2 amd64 [installed,automatic]
nvidia-tesla-470-kernel-support/unstable,now 470.223.02-2 amd64 [installed,automatic]

It's working fine at the moment.

                                     firmware-nvidia-gsp-535.146.02 ist aber nicht installierbar
Please check, why " firmware-nvidia-gsp-535.146.02" is not installable for you.
I have the "siduction-version" (535) of nvidia installed, too, like several others here, and no problems with it. Especially I have "firmware-nvidia-gsp-535.146.02" installed as "firmware-nvidia-gsp 535.146.02-0siduction1"! So again, what restricts its installation in your case?

Good luck.

 :-X   Uppppps!  A fool who lives in my house failed to add non-free-firmware on the fixes repo.  :'(

Fix the repo, and the new driver comes in correctly.

Ok, will check this too... I /think/ I added non-free-firmware, but this looks like a very plausible explanation...

Well... added non-free-firmware to debian sources but not siduction. nvidia-driver installs fine now with the addition. Kaum macht man's richtig, geht's auch.

Going to put a brown paper bag over my head for now...
