nvidia driver


#1

hi
system info and lshw say to me that i’m using nouveau
i’ve installed nvidia-driver, all works fine, rebooted, but still using nouveau
what i’ve to do to use nvidia-driver 390.67-2?

also, after rebooting, i’ve task manger “reversed”: in monitor 1 it shows process of monitor 2, and viceversa


#2

after reboot the “inverted” issue is solved
still have problem with driver
update to 5.13


#3

In theory installing the nvidia driver should blacklist the nouveau driver and set xorg.conf to use nvidia.
So check if both is happening for you.

Blacklist should be in /etc/modprobe.d/ folder.
Xorg configuration in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ folder.


#4

there is nothning there
i found this thread too: https://forums.netrunner.com/showthread.php?tid=24516
if you prefer, close this thread and i continue there


#5

in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ there is only /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
in /etc/modprobe.d/ I added blacklist.conf with this content:
blacklist nouveau
options nouveau modeset=0
but still using nouveau


#6

i missed update-initramfs -u, after a reboot X started in 640x480 (with llvm driver i suppose)
so i tried to add nvidia configuration in xorg.conf and in xorg.conf.d, but X doest start at all
removed all, i came back to nouveau


#7

Anything in the log why the nvidia driver did not work?


#8

i’ve installed nvidia-xconfig, it creates this xorg.conf

Please take a look at the Xorg.0.log file in /var/log after enabling nvidia driver to see why it is not working.

#12

The nvidia x11 driver module is missing. Make sure to have the package xserver-xorg-video-nvidia installed


#13

yes, i’ve

ii  xserver-xorg-video-nvidia                     390.67-2                              amd64        NVIDIA binary Xorg driver

#14

i’ve removed ALL packages about nvidia, rebooted and then reinstalled them
now it works


#15

Nice that you solved it :slight_smile:


#16

unbelievable
today i power on and it’s using llvmpipe driver :open_mouth:
this will me going crazy
later i try reboot


#17

i already have llvmpipe and that worst after reboot video card doesnt work any more
tried 4 times, first 3 times i “simply” power off and power on until it starts again
at 4th try i’ve had to phisically remove it, power on, power off, re-put it insiede my case
very disappointed


#18

Wow that sounds really strange. Are you sure it is not a hardware issue?


#19

I’m having the same issues. Installed the nvidia drivers twice but it’s still
using nouveau. This won’t work. I think Netrunner isn’t quite ready for
prime time.
