Setup is a XPS 15 9560 with Nvidia gtx 1050 mobile gpu. I know it's an optimus system but I do not want to install bumblebee for various reasons. Anyways, I had successfully installed the driver with NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-375.26.run file while running kernel version 4.9.0-4-amd64. After the kernel upgrade, X was no longer using the
nvidia driver so I uninstalled it, installed the new
linux-headers, rebooted into runlevel 3, and when attempting to reinstall it failed.
Here is /var/log/nvidia-installer.log.
I have blacklisted
nouveau in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
lsmod | grep -e nouveau -e rivafb -e nvidiafb
output is empty
$ uname -a Linux debian 4.9.0-5-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.65-3+deb9u2 (2018-01-04) x86_64 GNU/Linux
$ cc -v : gcc version 6.3.0 20170516 (Debian 6.3.0-18)
$ cat /proc/version Linux version 4.9.0-5-amd64 (email@example.com) (gcc version 6.3.0 20170516 (Debian 6.3.0-18) ) #1 SMP Debian 4.9.65-3+deb9u2 (2018-01-04)
Looks like the same
gcc version used to compile the currently running kernel and the Nvidia kernel module are exactly the same, so then is there something else I'm missing?
UPDATE: I had installed
tlp shortly after the initial installation of the nvidia driver which is when this issue actually began. I uninstalled
tlp then the driver installed flawlessly just like before.
