Installing NVIDIA drivers in Debian – short version

Summarised from the excellent guide here for those that have no time (although if you are installing for the first time you should probably have a read to at least know what your doing). I take no responsibility if this borks your system.

# If you have installed using the package directly from NVIDIA, remove it:
nvidia-installer --uninstall

apt-get install module-assistant nvidia-kernel-common
m-a prepare
m-a auto-install nvidia

The below is necessary only the first time you install:

# replcae unstable with your Debian dist
apt-get -t $NVDIST install nvidia-glx
addgroup --system video
adduser $USER video
grep -q ^nvidia /etc/modules || echo nvidia >> /etc/modules
cp -p /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.bak
md5sum /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 >| /var/lib/xfree86/XF86Config-4.md5sum
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

When asked to choose an X server driver, choose “nvidia”.
An open-source #alternative is the “nv” driver, which has 2D but no 3D capabilities.
When asked to select X server modules, deselect (uncheck) GLCore and dri, and select (check) glx.

Requests please

I’m currently taking song requests to attempt to mix, since I wish to appease the music afficandos. I can’t promise anything, as I expect to get DnB requests from Ben, and Death Metal/Psychedelic Rock/Avant Garde Metal from Barnes and Jon.

This’ll be interesting…

Edit: To make it slightly more doable, I’ll take requests for artists only. Since at least that’ll give me some room to maneuver.


…I wish I had no legs so that I wouldn’t have to try and fit them under desks.
