kernel.. does the nvidia module compile against that kernel and work ?
I am not finding any references of this driver being compiled against that new of a kernel, is it completing the compile and installation successfully ?
default@debianetch:$ cat /var/log/nvidia-installer.log | grep complete
-> Kernel module compilation complete.
-> Driver file installation is complete.
(version: 177.80) is now complete. Please update your XF86Config or
From that initial error message it looks like there is no kernel module present.
did you try to locate the file after compiling ?
default@debianetch:~$ uname -r
default@debianetch:~$ locate nvidia.ko
can't think of why it wouldn't find that module, unless the compilation failed.
