I'm running Debian Sid on my laptop.
I have recently bought a GeForce GTX 750 Ti which is unsupported by the
Trying to install the 334.21 version of the official nvidia .run file
obviously results in the message that this conflicts with the debian
Now, I could just apt-get remove nvidia-installer-cleanup and install
the official .run file, but:
I am using the card on a eGPU setup on a laptop, I still need to be able
to switch betwee the nvidia module and the mesa module.
Currently I do this with this egpu initscript: http://sprunge.us/MIBg
The script tries to find an nvidia card, and calls update-alternatives
then either for nvidia or mesa and also updates the Xorg config file
When I remove the nvidia-installer-cleanup package, I also lose the
diversion for mesa and nvidia. Yet, I can't install the diversion
without the nvidia driver packages.
Now the question is: Are you already working on the 334 driver version?
I have tried to update the packages myself, but not being a debian
developer or package maintainer, I simply don't know where to start.
Or do you have another idea how I could solve this?
