Re: installing Nvidia drivers

hmm, I also get errors when I simulate installing those packages, though not the same errors. $ sudo apt-get install -t jessie-backports bbswitch-dkms bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia primus primus-libs primus-libs:i386 -s NOTE: This is only a simulation! apt-get needs root privileges for real execution. ...

Re: A strang problem with synaptic

You had the same type of errors a couple weeks ago: viewtopic.php?p=389753#p389753

I think removing the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sed* files will probably fix it, but I would take a look at them first and make sure they're not something you might need.

Re: installing Nvidia drivers

This will add the jessie-backports repos to your sources su -c "echo 'deb http://ftp.ru.debian.org/debian/ jessie-backports main contrib non-free' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jessie-backports.list" Your profile shows Moscow as your location, so I set it to use the Russian Debian mirror. Afte...

Re: installing Nvidia drivers

I've had the jessie-backports repo enabled pretty much the entire time I've had MX-15 installed. It's automatically pinned at a '100' level so it usually doesn't cause a problem with upgrades. About the only time I've seen large numbers of backports offered as upgrades is when there's been a problem...

Re: installing Nvidia drivers

The debian wiki article for Bumblebee has a warning saying you should not create a xorg.conf for the nvidia driver. https://wiki.debian.org/Bumblebee#Installation Warning: If you choose to install bumblebee-nvidia and the dependent nvidia driver packages, during postinst, you will see a debconf prom...

Re: installing Nvidia drivers

I don't see anything in our wiki for Bumblebee, so I'll point you to the Debian wiki: https://wiki.debian.org/Bumblebee

Re: brand new Dell latop with 4G card

I guess I'm not following what you're trying to do, modinfo shows both usb-wwan and qcserial modules in the 4.2 and 4.7 kernels. $ /sbin/modinfo usb-wwan -k 4.2.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 filename: /lib/modules/4.2.0-0.bpo.1-amd64/kernel/drivers/usb/serial/usb_wwan.ko license: GPL description: USB Driver for G...

Re: MX15-32bit-Kodi

Glad it's all working for you. If want to have an updated version of the nvidia-legacy driver you can follow kmathern's directions and install it from backports. If you are just happy that it is working then it sounds like you are there and just enjoy your new MX15. Maybe the one in the CR could be...

Re: MX15-32bit-Kodi

Ahhh, didn't take into consideration that we had a package in our repos. :duh: I was looking at the Jessie package. Jessie and backports versions appear to be the same. There's been several updates going from the Jessie 304.131-1 version to the Jessie-backports 304.131-8~bpo8+1. nvidia-graphics-dri...
