Here are my two desktop systems with Nvidia graphics -- not the newest hardware, for sure. They are both fully updated and working well:

You wrote that you "tried to update the nvidia driver ...". I am not sure what that means -- did you have a previous nvidia driver installed and working?

For my systems, there is nothing special about updating the nvidia driver, except when sometimes a new linux kernel is not backward compatible to the current driver in unstable, then you have to do as @towo says and go to the experimental repo for a newer version. But that is not the case for the current 525.147.05-4 driver -- at least it is not a problem on my hardware, as you see above.

Here is the list of the packages that you need:

Code: [Select]
don@dibl-MOW:~$ apt depends nvidia-driver
nvidia-driver
  PreDepends: nvidia-installer-cleanup
  PreDepends: nvidia-legacy-check (>= 495)
  Depends: nvidia-driver-libs (= 525.147.05-4)
  Depends: nvidia-driver-bin (= 525.147.05-4)
  Depends: xserver-xorg-video-nvidia (= 525.147.05-4)
  Depends: nvidia-vdpau-driver (= 525.147.05-4)
  Depends: nvidia-alternative (= 525.147.05-4)
 |Depends: nvidia-kernel-dkms (= 525.147.05-4)
 |Depends: <nvidia-kernel-525.147.05>
    nvidia-kernel-dkms
 |Depends: <nvidia-open-kernel-525.147.05>
    nvidia-open-kernel-dkms
  Depends: <nvidia-open-kernel-525.147.05>
    nvidia-open-kernel-dkms
  Depends: nvidia-support
  Recommends: nvidia-settings (>= 525)
  Recommends: libnvidia-cfg1 (= 525.147.05-4)
  Recommends: nvidia-persistenced
 |Suggests: nvidia-kernel-dkms (>= 525.147.05)
 |Suggests: nvidia-kernel-source (>= 525.147.05)
 |Suggests: nvidia-open-kernel-source (>= 525.147.05)
  Suggests: nvidia-open-kernel-source (>= 525.147.05)
 
  I think maybe you need to remove all nvidia related packages, then try again with nvidia-driver.

Removed nvidia driver.

apt-get purge nvidia.

Installed it again.

apt-get install nvidia-driver

The situation has not changed.

@towo has shown that you are running a kernel (6.4.4) that is too old for the new nvidia driver version.

Do you have the siduction linux-image and linux-headers packages installed?

Code: [Select]
# apt update && sudo apt install linux-image-siduction-amd64 linux-headers-siduction-amd64
Next

Code: [Select]
# apt update && apt full-upgrade
This will bring in the latest released siduction kernel.  After you have the the new kernel, then the lastest nvidia driver should install correctly.

I installed the old kernel and driver because @towo said that 6.6 kernels and the new driver do not work together.
At the beginning of the update and now I have kernel 6.6.9 and a new driver.
The errors are the same all the time.

Yesterday I did:

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

But mistakes remained.

This morning I reinstalled the new driver (mistakes remained.).
Now I did it again:

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

Everything worked.
Kernels 6.6.9 and 6.4.4 work with the new driver.


Thank you all very much.

Cool.  (You need to use apt full-upgrade with sid, not upgrade, or your system will not receive new Debian packages that are released into sid, and eventually it will break.)

Now for the benefit of others, please open your original post for editing, and add "SOLVED" to the beginning of the title, and thank you.
