Thread: Nvidia driver problems

  1. #11

    Default Re: Nvidia driver problems

    The latest driver I found at https://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx is 384.98. OTOH, I found 387.34 (with a Nov. 24 release date) when I went to 'Advanced Driver Search' at https://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx.


    In a factory mailing list message yesterday:


    https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-.../msg00045.html


    a user pointed to another source:


    http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/


    I just checked this, and see that a brand new version 390.12 is now available there, with a January 3 release date.


    http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/390.12/


    But: I have no idea of the pedigree of .run files from this source, if they're alphas or betas or what, and/or if this brand new release addresses the recent build problems.


    Has anyone here used drivers from http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/ ?

    I was talking about Driver Nvidia from the Repository, I honestly did not try to compile the Nvidia.run Drivers

    I just grabbed 390.12 to try. I get all my nvidia drivers from nvidia, why would they not be a good source that makes no sense ...

    390.12 seems to be working fine also

    The driver directory http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/ lives at nvidia.com, but I can't find any link pointing to it, and wonder if the drivers therein are intended only for developers / judged unready for public distribution. I believe that the latest official release of the Nvidia driver is 384.98.


    (This was also pointed out in one of the factory list messages: https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-.../msg00043.html )


    BUT!!!, with that said: alpha, beta, doodle, or whatever it is, I just successfully installed 390.12 after a zypper dup, and have an up-to-date system once again. Thank you, xorbe, for testing it out. I don't have to figure out how to go back to nouveau, at least not yet.

    When installing manually, you can use the --dkms option, provided that you install dkms first. dkms will trigger a rebuild of the nvidia module on a kernel update.

    Thanks for the tip, Knurpht! I hadn't known about the --dkms option.

    That said, however: would dkms have helped in this particular situation? The 384.98 nvidia driver wouldn't build after zypper dup brought in the 4.14.9 kernel. I had to download the 390.12 nvidia beta.

    the new nvidia 384.111 came out but I can not install them because it does not let me enter init 3, why?
