Nvidia woes on new machine

#1

Post by zebedeeboss » Tue Jun 25, 2019 11:01 am

Running the driver install says it is already installed at 418.74.1 (from when I originally installed it via this tool) but when I reboot it drops down to a terminal. I have to remove the xorg.conf file from /etc/X11 folder and reboot using nomodeset

What to do next. - system specs below this screen. The nvidia card is an RTX2080 Ti

Thanks in advance Zeb...

Sorry. This is a result of last week's kernel update issue you may have seen posted here.
In about an hour the missing linux-headers package should again be available on the *.mxrepo.com mirrors. Other mirrors will take longer to sync up.
Or you could install a different kernel. Check the MX Package Installer for options. The LIquorix kernel version is now up to 5.1-13.

Thank You - I did see a post about kernel problems and tried the method mentioned there

Did not realise the fix had not been fully made available yet or another was being prepared

Will try it again in a couple of hours and if that does not work - try another kernel in the MX Package like you suggested.
