The version of nvidia-driver in our main mx repo is '367.44-3mx150+3'
Code: Select all
$ apt-cache policy nvidia-driver

I think our ddm-mx nvidia installer installs the 367.44 version nvidia driver from our mx main repo if the testrepo isn't enabled, if you follow the Debian wiki instructions they probably install that version too. But if you look at the 367.44 supported devices list here: http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/367.44/README/supportedchips.html
, you'll find that the 10de:1c8d device isn't supported.
If you temporarily enable the mx testrepo (with MX Repo Manager)
, the ddm-mx installer should install the 375.66 version nvidia driver instead of 367.44. The 375.66 driver supports the 10de:1c8d device (http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/375.66/README/supportedchips.html
). Disable the testrepo afterward. If that works it might be reason enough to have Tim move the 375.66 version nvidia packages to the mx main repo.
