I installed the new nvidia driver with opengl 4.5 capabilities after a fresh install of linux mint (the usual way: stopping mdm, disabling nouveau, installing, starting mdm, nvidia-xconfig). But now cinnamon crashes and I only have a resolution of 640x480. Also I get an error that it can't get the correct configuration of the monitors or something similar to that. How do I fix that?
Edit: the error message started with "could not apply stored configuration to monitors"
I have the following errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log:
(EE) NVIDIA: Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the
(EE) NVIDIA: system's kernel log for additional error messages and
(EE) NVIDIA: consult the NVIDIA README for details.
(EE) No devices detected.
(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)
Edit3: lsmod shows
video 19476 1 nouveau
so that's odd, I guess Nouveau loads before the nvidia drivers get a chance to do so?
Edit4: Ok, I disabled nouveau bei blacklisting it and updating initramfs. Now it seems to work! Thanks!
