When upgrading my lenovo T530 I was warned that nvidia-driver does not
support anymore my graphic card. Thus I chose to not upgrade in the dialog.
Now I have partially installed packages for nvidia driver, so what
should I do with this ?
And what should I have done ? Install non working drivers ?
I am on a W520, equipped with a Quadro-1000M; I saw the same warning you
did, and the card was identified correctly. I am on Buster.
I installed nvidia-legacy-390, uninstalled nvidia-legacy-checker, and my
machine survived a reboot with the GUI coming up nicely.
On a totally separate note, I have no idea actually if I am using this
driver over nouveau, since I was messing with bumblebee a while back and
don't push the graphics capabilities here....
