I’m trying to install the driver of the Nvidia Quadro P4000 in a workstation but for the moment i’m not able to make it works
First I tried to enable the Nvidia Driver form the GUI through System-Settings–> Software & Updates–>Additional Driver: it enable the drier 384.130 but it completely destroy the system that after that start in Rcovery mode.
I have reistalled the System and i wanted to try to install the proprietary driver downloaded by Nvidia: NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.87.run
- Under /etc/modprobe.d i have added a blacklist-nouveau.cfg with the following two line blacklist nouveau and options nouveau modeset=0
- i have run this command sudo update-initramfs -u to regenerate initramfs
- The in the terminal i have stopped the lightdm service with sudo service lightdm stop
- The i tried to run ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-390.87.run
But it pre-install script failed with the following erroer:
Unable to load: nvidia-installer ncurses v6 user interface
there is method to fix or i made some mistake? Below there is the complete log file
