Re: Problem after dist-upgrade and dpkg install -f (Probably nvidia packages related)




Hans,
Don't be sorry (yet). I need some time to figure out some steps.
Making a backup now. After that I will re-read your answers and try to try them all.
If you or someone would want to do schedule a remote login let me know. As I am doing a Linux course now I would really like to learn from this and what others would do on my system when the would perform a remote login.
If anyone needs more info try and tell me how to get it out of my system.
I was wondering for instance whether some sort of roll back is possible after performing a (dist-)upgrade. Maybe it is too late now ...

Kind regards,
Aquarius

Hmm, your package can definetely not installed. Is it possible to remove the
packages one-by-one?

If you are able, to remove the nvidia packages, you can download the Nvidia-
driver from the nvidia web site. It is a file named similar NVidia-blabla.run.

You have to make it executable and start it as root like

./NVidia.blabla.run

Maybe this is working for you. If this is working, you know, it is working at
all. This file can easily deinstalled with ./NVidia-blabla.run --uninstall.

It is difficult from this side to see what is happening. It is easier, when
having direct access to a system, so one can see more, what is happening.

Maybe someone else has also some tips ( I hope)

Sorry, that my hints did not really help.

Meanwhile I tried dpkg --configure libgl1-nvidia-glx:amd64
Output:
Setting up libgl1-nvidia-glx:amd64 (340.101-1) ...
Killed
dpkg: error processing package libgl1-nvidia-glx:amd64 (--configure):

What you described below is a bit of too 'over the top' for me.
Don't know exactly what to do by what you describe but will try to find out.
Maybe I will better first do a backup of data.

Thanks again,
Aquarius
