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




Hi,

I tried to find out X I have and it seemed to be lightdm. So I killed that proces but only my GUI was gone.
Find and Locate did not find nvidia.ko

So this did not work for me.

Hmm, bad thing. Maybe you should remove kdm, gdm or whatever loginmanager you
are using out of the way, so it will not start after boot and force you into a
bad X.

Then you can try dpkg-configure -a again.

You can also try to delete nvidia.ko in the kernel libs, so it inhibits to
start nvidia-driver.

Try then dpkg-reconfigure -a again. Maybe it is working now.

You might try to deinstall the downloaded package with
dpkg -r nvidia-blabla.deb

If this all fails, trigger me again, maybe I have some other ideas.

Good luck!

Thanks Hans.
I must add when shutting down I get a black screen with lots of text. The
system will not shut down. I have to press the powerbutton and hold it to
power it off. After starting up again I performed apt-get --purge remove
nvidia-*
The output was:
root@debian:/home/piet# apt-get --purge remove nvidia-*
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to
correct the problem.

Well, it seems I would be running in circles then.
Any other idea?

Kind regards,
Aquarius
