There is a new nVidia legacy driver 340.101 out to support new Xorg, but needs patch to be applied if the kernel version is greater than or equal to 4.9.0.

Patch is in this post:

I'll give it a try within the next day or so and report back. Using special test options?

OK tested sgfxi with 340.101 driver with 4.9.0 kernel and had success. No issues so far with this driver along with the patch.

When 4.10 rolls around we shall see if this will work with it or if there's a patch for 4.10.

Could not pastebin my sgfxi.log: Could not add your entry to the paste database: Length of code is not allowed to exceed 150kB

Anyway, things were fine until installing kernel 5.6, and then I got ERROR: (245) The nvidia installer exited with the error: 1 when installing current nvidia 440.64

Tried (hacked away at) it a number of times, and then I sgfxi installed the debian-nvidia driver, which is 440.82 vs. what the script wants to install as 440.64 for current-nvidia (sic).

Before trying to bug hunt, I'd update the script to pull 440.82.

I did not check for debian package maintainer errors for 440.64 and kernel 5.6, but the bottom line is that the debian-nvidia driver installed correctly/without a problem, and the script should pull something later that 440.64

Thanks

You have to provide details: inxi -Ga

I can't do anything without that information, otherwise i can't match internal IDs to anything. You must include inxi -Ga for me to be able to see what is happening.

I double checked, that driver had been added, but I simply forgot to upload the sgfxi file when I added it, that's been corrected.
