I have a Nvidia GeForce 845M card. I wish to install the driver for NVIDIA Vulkan in my Debian 8.

I followed these steps without luck.

  1. I go to web. I selected Download for Linux 64-bit: enter image description here

Below you can see a list of supported cards: enter image description here

I can't see my card.

But in the download page I can see my card: enter image description here

  1. When I downloaded the driver i do:

    $ chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-367.27.run
    $ sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-367.27.run

But this errors show up:

Here's the log: /var/log/nvidia-installer.log

What am I doing wrong?


Your installer log says that an X server is running. You might try doing whatever it takes to get to a text shell prompt with no X server running.

Whenever I install these drivers on an Ubuntu system, I Ctrl-Alt-F1 to get to a text shell and kill the X server with sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm stop.

Then I run the .run file.
