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




Hi,

I switched to init 1. I performed a dkpg --configure on the lib11 etc but it did not work.
Then I decided to try remove the packages one by one:
dpkg --purge nvidia-glx: succes
dpkg --purge nvidia-driver: succes
dpkg --purge xserver-xorg-video-nvidia: succes with messages among which:
update alternatives: warning: forcing reinstallationof alternative /usr/lib/nvidia/current because link group nvidia is broken
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.16.0-4-amd64
dpkg --purge libg11-nvidia-glx:amd64 with message:
dpkg: warning: ignoring request to remove package which isn't installed

I initiated init 6 logged in then logged out and all seems well. Thanks for the advise or removing the packages one by one.

But what am I missing now?

Kind regards.

Hmm, your package can definetely not installed. Is it possible to remove the

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):

137 Errors were encountered while processing:

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
