I have just done a new install followed by dist-upgrade and been hit by this. Everything is still at default settings, so debian unstable main contrib no-free and fixes are in the sources list but I get unable to locate package nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver.


Has it been removed?

The 340.76-2 version is in 'extra' repository and 340.76-3 in 'fixed'.

...
Which driver should I choose with this card?

Code: [Select]
Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA GF119 [GeForce GT 610]
           Display Server: X.Org 1.16.4 driver: nvidia Resolution: 1920x1200@59.95hz
           GLX Renderer: GeForce GT 610/PCIe/SSE2 GLX Version: 4.4.0 NVIDIA 340.76

By now I have 340.76-1.siduction.1 which was in fixes... Is there a list with the supported/moved cards?

According to the list I posted already the GeForce GT 610 seems to be supported by the newest nvidia driver (i.e. not legacy). But no guarantee ...
Ok, you can't code, but you still might be able to write a bug report for Debian's sake

I still cannot locate the legacy drivers but I think my GTX650 TI should be normal driver anyway.
The normal driver (340.76-1) fails with:
Code: [Select]
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.0.0-towo.1-siduction-amd64 (x86_64)

So probably best re-install and forget about dist-upgrade for a while!

Use the driver from our fixes repo!
Alternatively you can use the newest driver from our extra/experimental repo.

Thanks to all that helped ... I have to admit a bit of a booboo!


Although the default sources file has fixes, extra, etc it does not have contrib and non-free on the end of the lines and I did not notice until now!




All working great now on 346.59 with the exception of extra artifacts around the (awful) text in QupZilla.


Many thanks.

hi billium,

perhaps two issues are mixed? 

For the awfulness of fonts see  http://forum.siduction.org/index.php?topic=5401.0
Fonts can be a site specific or desktop specific problem. Are you using LXQT? Which URL is it?

For the artifacts (driver issue?): no idea but you can try to upload a screenshot of the problem.
which vga card do you use?

greetings
musca

So lange Du ständig die Ausgabe von inxi als Root hier postet, wird das sowieso nix.
Und ein dpkg -l | grep nvidia würde mich auch interessieren.

Das hat nix mit stören zu tun, sondern damit, das inxio als root keinen Sinn macht, weil wichtige Angaben fehlen!

Laut deinem unvollständigen inxi wurde aber nicht der Nvidia-Treiber benutzt!

Stimmt du hast Recht:

Code: [Select]
Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA GT218 [GeForce 210] bus-ID: 01:00.0
           Display Server: X.Org 1.16.4 drivers: nouveau (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) Resolution: 1920x1080@60.00hz
           GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on NVA8 GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 10.4.2 Direct Rendering: Yes

Darauf habe ich gar nicht geachtet. Ich war einfach nur froh dass es wieder funktioniert hat.
Es ist anscheinend der Nouveau Treiber aktiv der auch installiert ist wie ich jetzt festgestellt habe:

Code: [Select]
apt-cache policy xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
xserver-xorg-video-nouveau:
  Installiert:           1:1.0.11-1
  Installationskandidat: 1:1.0.11-1
  Versionstabelle:
 *** 1:1.0.11-1 0
        500 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ unstable/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Beide brauche ich ja wohl nicht. Ich denke mal der Nvidia-legacy Treiber ist die bessere Alternative was man so liest. Wie bekomme ich den aktiv?
