CANNOT LOGIN anymore after installation of nvidia driver nvidia-tesla-470-driver


I cannot login anymore after the installation of nvidia driver nvidia-tesla-470-driver for my Quadro K6000 on Debian 6.1

I followed Nvidia prerequisites build up the kernel (compiled the kernel and I could log in again) I ran nvidia-detect which recommanded nvidia-tesla-470-driver.
I ran the installation through : sudo apt install nvidia-tesla-470-driver
ended up well.
I reboot and I cannot log in anymore.

What is wrong?
It seems to happen very often, and nobody is proposing a solution online.

It was because gdm has been damaged by driver installation and I could fix it using
app-get install gdm3
