It is very possible that your card needs the legacy drivers instead of the ones you installed. Also make sure you have the headers installed.See the Debian Wiki for more information.
This is for cards that need the current driver. If you need a legacy driver (173 or 96) there are dkms packages as well, but I have no way to test them. Good luck!I have seen a few people having trouble with the proprietary Nvidia drivers on crunchbang. It should not be this way as installing the Nvidia drivers is quite painless in Debian.
I recently installed a new NVIDIA card GK106 [GeForce GTX 660]. I tried to install the nvidia drivers and didn't see anything different but once I restarted i cannot get any GUI. I can ctrl+alt+f2 and get to a terminal. I've tried to remove all Nvidia drivers but still that's no help.
I'm still a novice by most standards so any help is greatly appreciated!
I have Debian-LXDE 7.2(Wheezy) installed on an old, old computer. I have to use this for a couple of weeks until my new computer gets here. My other computer bit the dust a few days ago with no warning. So...
I have an Nvidia Geforce 6200 with Nvidia legacy drivers, 1GB of RAM, 2.08GHz Amd Athlon 2800+ (32bit.)
Hey everybody,I heard about #! a few days ago and I had been really eager to try it out. I installed #! this morning (with a plethora of problems, unfortunately) and I got it working after a while. Now, however, I'm stuck with more trouble. :(Lets start at the beginning. I installed the backport (you know, because the 3.2 kernel is clearly better than the 2.6.32 one, right?).
