getting Nvidia Driver is a pain inda ass
basically the title:
running Alma via dual boot with windows!
Machine = Thinkpad P50 with old Quadro m100m GPU
1.its kinda laggy … ok lets try install nvidia driver ( How to Install NVIDIA Drivers on AlmaLinux 8 - LinuxCapable ) Nope
i get: " All matches were filtered out by modular filtering for argument: nvidia-settings
Error: Unable to find a match: nvidia-driver nvidia-settings "
- then i tried getting a driver directly from nvidia ( Download NVIDIA, GeForce, Quadro, and Tesla Drivers )
But nope its a f u 2! He tells me that the noveau needs to be disabled (which i cant even if adding a file blacklist.noveau.conf )
- last try ( …) trying to steal a driver for rhel (there is one for Rocky 8 though) but all i achieved is screwing up something with the repo " Updating Subscription Management repositories.
Unable to read consumer identity
This system is not registered with an entitlement server. You can use subscription-manager to register."
is RHEL telling me i dont get their shit without a valid Account here ?
little Help would be much apprechiated !
