    I have this kernel

    5.8.0-0.bpo.2-amd64


    You think the 450 driver is compatible with my GPU ?

    Because when I go to this site it says that my GPU is compatible with the 340 driver

    http://us.download.nvidia.com/…EADME/supportedchips.html


    And


    Code
    Detected NVIDIA GPUs:
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation G92 [GeForce GTS 250] [10de:0615] (rev a2)
    Checking card: NVIDIA Corporation G92 [GeForce GTS 250] (rev a2)
    Your card is only supported up to the 340 legacy drivers series.
    It is recommended to install the
    nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver
    package.


    And when I install the 450 driver

    NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

    For my GPU, I have to install the nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver.

    I have purge my system, I launch the driver installation with:

    Code
    apt install -t buster-backports nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver

    The installation is going well, then I do:

    Code
    apt install -t buster-backports nvidia-xconfig
    sudo nvidia-xconfig

    After I reboot and when I want to see if everthing is good with:

    Code
    nvtop
    or
    watch -d -n 0.5 nvidia-smi

    It's sais


    Code
    Impossible to initialize nvidia nvml : Driver/library version mismatch


    Have you got an idea ? 🤔

    Here is what it puts

    Code
    root @ YannickServer: ~ # sudo dpkg --configure –a
    dpkg: error: --configure requires a legal package name. “–A” is not; illegal package name in specification "–a": must start with an alphanumeric character
    Use "dpkg --help" for help with installing and uninstalling packages [*];
    Use "apt" or "aptitude" to manage packages in a more user-friendly way;
    Use "dpkg -Dhelp" to get a list of debug flag values;
    Use "dpkg --force-help" to see the list of force options;
    Use "dpkg-deb --help" for help on handling * .deb files;
    Options marked with [*] display a lot of information: pipe them through "less" or "more".

    Thanks! But I have this problem...

    Do you know how I can solve it?

    Hello everyone, during the installation I encountered this problem:



    Anyone have any idea to solve it? 😁

    Ok thank you, and do you have an idea to solve this problem for installing the NVIDIA driver?

    That's the log

    That tells me

    Code
    No version of the linux-headers package is available, but it exists in the database
    of data. This usually means that the package is missing, that it has become obsolete
    or that it is only available on another source
    The "linux-headers" package has no version that can be installed
