What does he say to

apt install nvidia-driver --no-install-recommends

with the 386 packages ?

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia drivers - and more

I have absolutely NO IDEA what is going on.

1. went to root

sudo su -

2. I removed i386 programs:

apt-get purge ".*:i386"

3. I removed i386 architecture - will reinstall printer drivers later.

dpkg --remove-architecture i386

4. dropped to tty2

sudo su -
apt install nvidia-driver

all looked good, no i386 packages.

Got the notice about conflicting nouveau driver & best way to deal with it was reboot.  GREAT I thought!

Watched the process to the end, no errors.

5. [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[F1]
6. OB menu - shutdown

Switched cable to video card

7. Rebooted
- BIOS Screen
- GRUB screen - Debian
8. tty1 asking for my login name | password
....

9. tty1 asking for my login name | password
....

10. tty1 asking for my login name | password
....
shut down .....
11. put graphics cable back on mobo graphic
- thinking: No nouveau driver - will need to reinstall
- OH JOY!!!!

12. REBOOTED <<<<<<<<
SAY WHAT?  HERE i AM - CONFUSED LIKE THE DEVIL!

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia drivers - and more

The nvidia driver is loaded:

driver: nvidia

You should disable the builtin graphics if you want to purely use the nvidia card, and plug in the monitor cable to the nvidia card. I have that same AMD chip in my system so I disabled onboard graphics via the BIOS.

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia drivers - and more

^^You're going to destroy your whole system....  big_smile

In my opinion, you always confuse the 386 packages with those that nvidia installs in addition. But the 386-nvidia packages are only meant for people who want to play crappy M$ games via wine for example.
In this sense 386 has nothing in common with 386 on your system here.

Assuming you haven't already undone everything, you're standing here now, and you should after updating Xorg you should reinstall the driver.
Note: Also this tutorial is already 8 years old and I have NO nvidia  wink
Please change above to en

By the way, I need the exact name of your printer, because it can't be that there are only 386 packages for it.  hmm

That worked ... but I got three lines of errors at least 2 were BIOS ERRORS

I am on my: GeForce GT 710B card at the moment

How do I read the error logs of tty1 from tty2-7 ?

Because tty1 is my log in point.

Looks like "nouveau" is still there but "unloaded":

Graphics:  Device-1: NVIDIA GK208 [GeForce GT 710B] vendor: Gigabyte GK208B driver: nvidia v: 418.181.07 bus ID: 01:00.0 
           chip ID: 10de:128b 
           Display: tty server: X.Org 1.20.4 driver: nvidia unloaded: fbdev,modesetting,nouveau,vesa alternate: nv 
           compositor: compton resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz 
           OpenGL: renderer: GeForce GT 710/PCIe/SSE2 v: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 418.181.07 direct render: Yes 

Then I found this:
EDIT:  Just noticed that the code above from inxi says the "nouveau" driver is unloaded so this does not apply, but will leave it:

You need to unload the nouveau driver before you can load the nvidia driver. However, the nouveau driver is currently in use by the X-server, so it cannot be unloaded yet. You have to stop the X-server first (but don't just re-start it, as then it will use the nouveau driver again).

So in short:

  1. stop X-server: sudo service lightdm stop

  2. unload the nouveau driver: sudo rmmod nouveau

  3. load the nvidia driver: sudo modprobe nvidia

  4. start the X-server: sudo service lightdm start


You might be out-of-luck and the framebuffer for the console is locking the nouveau driver as well. In this case I haven't found a way to unload the driver at all...

Obviously 1 and 4 in my case can be eliminated.
Does everyone in the world use lightdm?

My feeling exactly ... I was willing to leave it alone.  But still got replies.

So what I did - AFTER getting the proper dkms installed:

  1. removed all i386 programs (just my printer drivers anyway)

    • sudo apt purge ".*:i386"

  2. got rid of i386 architecture

    • sudo dpkg --remove-architecture i386

  3. dropped to tty2 and installed the nividia-driver

  4. rebooted - have OOPS with card would not work

  5. rebooted - with mobo graphics card

    • sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

  6. re-installed printer drivers

    • /media/10/Brother_HL1110/hl1110cupswrapper-3.0.1-1a.i386.deb

    • /media/10/Brother_HL1110/hl1110lpr-3.0.1-1a.i386.deb

Exactly why I removed i386 this time before installing nvidia-driver.

Does everyone in the world use lightdm?

I get those same errors in BIOS as well but they are harmless on my setup and not interfering with system operation. Also you need to blacklist the nouveau driver like this:

Open “/etc/modprobe. d/blacklist. conf” in your favorite editor and add the following line to the end:

blacklist nouveau

Save and close the file. This will take effect on the next reboot.

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia drivers - and more

This already exists, I did not create it:

/etc/modprobe. d/nvidia-blacklist-nouveau.conf

# You need to run "update-initramfs -u" after editing this file.

# see #580894
blacklist nouveau

My guess, part of the nvidia-driver install process.


I have done at least 2 reboots already.

I find moving windows is very jerky.  sad

For the future  smile

1.Debian has a rescue tool that is not very well known.  It comes with Systemd and is called debug-shell.service. It allows you to open a rescue shell on tty9 if you have problems with booting your system.  The service file is pre-installed but not activated.  So, to be able to use it when you need it. In this shell you are already root:

systemctl enable debug-shell.service

The system will set a symbolic link:

ln -s '/lib/systemd/system/debug-shell.service'
'/etc/systemd/system/sysinit.target.wants/debug-shell.service'

Please deactivate it again after work is done!

systemctl disable debug-shell.service

2. or, simply set it to tty1 and leave it open

sudo journalctl -af > ~/freeze.txt

Change to tty2, do the work and after logging in, logging out the log is in your ~/

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia drivers - and more

All done - up and running.

It was a process though

NOTE:  I do NOT have lightdm installed


IF you have i386 architecture" enabled on a 64 bit system.
And you can remove it for a while do so.
As I only needed it for my Brother Laser printer so:
1. went to root

sudo su -

2. I removed i386 programs:

apt-get purge ".*:i386"

3. I removed i386 architecture - will reinstall printer drivers later.

dpkg --remove-architecture i386

Now to get the update bug free version of "dkms" into Debian 10 Buster:
Because the dkms that comes with Buster is broken:

Parsing Found/Fixed information... Done
grave bugs of dkms (→ 2.6.1-4) <Resolved in some Version>
 b1 - #956245 - /etc/kernel/header_postinst.d/dkms: Error! You must be root to use this command. (Fixed: dkms/2.8.2-1 dkms/2.8.2-2)
Summary:
 dkms(1 bug)
Are you sure you want to install/upgrade the above packages? [Y/n/?/...] 

4. SO I grabbed

Debian SID: dkms (2.8.4-3)

5. And installed it locally:

 26 Mar 21 @ 11:24:08 ~
   $ sudo su -
[sudo] password for sector11: 
root@sector11:~# cd /media/10/DEBs/test-sid/
root@sector11:/media/10/DEBs/test-sid# sudo apt install ./dkms_2.8.4-3_all.deb

and that was in slick as a whistle!

Next:

6. [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[F2] to get to tty2

 06 Apr 21 @ 16:35:57 ~
   $ sudo su -
[sudo] password for sector11: 
root@sector11:~# apt install nvidia-driver

and let it do it's work work.

And as damo said, do NOT run nvidis-config

And here I am <- my desktop.

My heartfelt thanks to everyone that helped here!
You're all great!

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia drivers - and more

Finally an end to quite an adventure. Now what happens when you re-enable i386 to reinstall your printer's driver?

lol  lol  lol  lol
My forgetter really is getting better, and ya had to point it out, didn't ya.  wink

Well as soon as the nvidia-driver was in and I did a reboot I added i386 architecture:

dpkg --add-architecture i386

Then:

 $ sudo su -
 $ cd /media/10/Brother_HL1110/
 $bash hl1110cupswrapper-3.0.1-1a.i386.deb
 $bash hl1110lpr-3.0.1-1a.i386.deb

Instructions on this page - just stop the download.

Worked perfect!

BUT When this one dies: HP no more i386 for me.

But have no fear there will be another Sector11 Linux Adventure in the future I'm sure.

Great to hear it all works now and yes HP's are worth getting as their drivers are quite robust compared to brother's. No i386 silliness for HP drivers smile

Once you move to Beryllium/Bullseye things should be working better with dkms.

I may not be the brightest bulb in the room but I'm not totally burntout yet.  smile

I struggle with a lot of things.  And 'usually' get things working.  I can do a lot on my own and when new things hit me, I try to find a fix.  If I can't I'm here.

Bullseye will have the proper  dkms, I'm running that version right now. Don't know why the Debian team can't bring it here as a bug fix?  Does not make sense.  BUT ...

I also read something about Bullseye and i386 architecture, forgot to bookmark it.  Seems they are trimming it back, so an HP printer might be a thing before the 'Brother' dies.

And then there is this: Debian 'Bullseye' enters final phase before release as team debates whether it will be last to work on i386 architecture

To i386 or not to i386 that is the question,
But to HP is a given.

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia drivers - and more

I think it will be that i386 architecture will still be offered but i386 install media will no longer be available and the i386 packages will still be in the repos. There may be a time when i386 will be completely dropped however, but that will be a ways off as things like Steam still depend on 32 bit libs.
