I have tried to install the nvidia-driver on my new laptop in two different ways with the same result - it didn’t work out. The installation was done on a fresh debian (Linux version 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.43-2 (2017-04-30))
I install the “nvidia-driver” with the package-manager - the installation ran without problems.
After reboot the system starts the KDE-desktop with the “Nouveau-driver”.
Calling “nvidia-settings” gave the confimation that the system currently does not use the
nvidia-driver and I should run “nvidia-xconfig” to set the necessary settings automatically.
Calling “nvidia-xconfig” failed cause the file wasn`t available in the system.
I reset the system with the image I do before installing the driver - so it is fresh again and download the current driver-version from the nvidia-homepage (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-375.66.run).
Stop the x-server and start to install the driver from tty1.
Installation ran without problems - I accept the “automatical update of the x-configuration”.
After reboot the system comes up in tty1. The x-server on tty7 seems to run but there is only blinking courser.
Please find attach the appropriate logs and bug-reports.
Thank’s for help / pexx
