slackpkg error, nouveau blacklist with nvidia driver


So after using the nouveau blacklist installer from the 'extra' repo, I installed the nvidia driver (440) and everything is working beautifully.

Now, going to do routine upgrade (update) using slackpkg, I get a 'you have a broken /var/log/packages/' error.

It lists

xf86-video-nouveau-1.0.16-x86_64-1
xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist-noarch-1

as the duplicates.

What's the process to perform upgrade-all? (I)gnore just exits slackpkg.

Running -current.

You should be able to safely (B)lacklist these packages if you have the nvidia proprietary driver installed

They're likely being seen as duplicate packages because the xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist package doesn't have a version number (causing the system to assume "blacklist" is the version number and the packages have the same name), so I guess it's kind of a minor bug

If you install NVidia driver from the .run file, it creates the blacklist file,
the xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist package isn't needed.
I think the SBo NVidia driver also installs the blacklist file.

No, there's only a note in the README to install extra/xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist package.

Thanks for the info, I wasn't sure about that.

Ok, blacklisted and upgrade-all proceeded as expected. Thank you.
