The make.log of nvidea is very long with a lot of red error lines. Maybe the last will be enough for getting an solution.

My question: Is there something I can do to solve this issue?

Thanks for support and best regards
Thanks in advance and best regards


You will have to wait for an nvidia driver update 525.147.05-6~deb12u1 to work with the latest kernels currently in unstable but is being pushed through to stable-p-u (proposed updates)
The bug :
21grams >> light in flight


Thanks a lot 21grams,

it is possible to download the nvidia-graphics-drivers 525.147.05-6~deb12u1 from debian package website.

I tried to installl them, but I got the message, that this driver does not support Tesla 470 drivers any longer. I should use nvidia-tesla-470-driver. Tesla driver already installed.

Shall I install the nvidia-graphics-drivers 525.147.05-6~deb12u1 anyway by ignoring the warnings?
Will this destroy the tesla-driver?

Sorry for this maybe stupid question.
Thanks for your time...
Best regards
Thanks in advance and best regards


A stupid question is one never asked - your question is worthy of an answer I cannot currently give without testing that.

I will, however, assume the combining of drivers mentioned in the bug should work.

Perhaps run that new nvidia-detect and see what that allows or wait for the world to catch up.

Thanks for your friendly answer.
I have installed nvidia-detect [525.147.05-4~deb12u1]
Newer version is in sid nvidia-detect_525.147.05-6_amd64.deb
but it is not possible to install it.
nvidia-detect with existing version give as result:

Checking card:  NVIDIA Corporation GK208M [GeForce GT 740M] (rev a1)
Your card is supported by the Tesla 470 drivers series.
It is recommended to install the
I will/must wait.....

thanks a lot
Thanks in advance and best regards

System now updated to 6.1.0-18
Thanks in advance and best regards
