I need to install proprietary Nvidia drivers in my Debian Wheezy (to use CUDA if you wonder why) but none of these two options work for me:
- From Wheezy (backports) packages, the last nvidia-driver version is 319.82 and it does not manage my graphic card which is recent enough (GTX850M).
- From Nvidia website (using .run file), I can get the very last version of the driver, compatible with my card, but it breaks my system because -- as I guess -- I need Bumblebee... which refuses to be installed if Nvidia drivers were installed using .run file!
What is the solution except waiting for drivers upgrade in Debian?
Hint: it seems sid nivida-driver may solve my problem, but I am afraid that if I start using sid packages, because of nvidia-driver and bumblebee dependencies, I will need to cope with a stable/sid packages mixture for a while...
