Re: Nvidia drivers

Do you have nvidia-glx installed?  That's what I think you need.

Install nouveau (that should clean out all the Debian nvidia stuff) then clean out the nvidia stuff that you installed privately, then install nvidia-glx.

I've recently after Squeeze went stable, changed my sources.list from
having the keyword testing to stable.

I've tried
apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-nvidia-glx

apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-kernel-dkms

which reinstalled those files but I think that there may be a linking
problem in
Hawaiian:/home/ja# ls -l /usr/lib/libGLc*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root       22 Apr 18 15:38 /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1 ->

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 28862968 Jun  3  2010 /usr/lib/libGLcore.so.195.36.31

Again any advice, and I'd be very grateful,

Best regards

Hi, My source.list has the following;

deb http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stable main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/ stable main non-free contrib

Done, that and still get the same error; full output is
Hawaiian:/home/ja# aptitude install nvidia-kernel-dkms No packages
will be installed, upgraded, or removed.
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 2 not

For me, nvidia-kernel-dkms is in testing and above and not in stable.

Here's the output:

$ apt-cache policy nvidia-kernel-dkms
   Installed: (none)
   Candidate: 260.19.44-1
   Version table:
      270.30-1 0

         400 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing/non-free i386
     300 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable/non-free i386

So I would suggest adding testing to your repos. I have this:

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free
