Since we are now based on debian testing, this may be helpfull:

Hi AJSlye

Worked like a charm - Thank You

Regards Zeb…

Note that our Debian snapshot already should provide the nvidia-driver package that should be installed. So this can be done without the need to upgrade to the Debian testing rolling repositories.
