Can I not? Something wrong with the logic there. You want me to not. Where's the acorn?

So... yeah, Installing driver with .run file is sure an option. But make backup first, you might end up with broken system. How to install those drivers: when booting Debian, chose advanced options - recovery mode, login as root and execute that file, following it's instructions. After reboot you will have a great, proprietary nvidia driver in the system.

Thank you, DJ. I cloned the drive and made sure it boots. Now I'm ready to go for the proprietary nVidia driver install.

Got nVidia driver 460.80 with CUDA 11.2 up and running on the linux box. Now, make a backup and then swap in the 2080Ti and see if she flies. Then, move on to NVDec.

Holding off for now on making a linux GUI for DGDemux. Ramping up on GTK will likely be a lengthy process. No hurry. Maybe the community will take care of it. ;)

Wheee!

Thank you, gonca. Disabling nouveau had a little gotcha but squirrels are resourceful. The sound actually seems harder to get going.

Maybe DJ can suggest a linux-compatible sound card as I have had it up to here with this Realtek garbage. Creative SoundBlaster?

I saw manjaro on a list of worst distros for beginners. Just saying...

If Sherman lets me, we will have Rocky approved. He hasn't answered my PM yet. I think he's working on making a Linux forum(s). Not so easy, this webmastering stuff, eh boy?

My monitor doesn't have any sound connectors. Good old line out is what we need. Anyway, we're not putting the 3090 into the Linux box.

In windows was using the motherboard Realtek crap. Can't get that working with Debian. I need to know of a card that will function well with Debian, without me having to divulge all my acorn caches. Ya know?

No real magic here, Realtek cards should be supported on any distro.
Maybe you will have to configure output (if few detected), I remember I had such issue on some old Mainboard and 5.1 Realtek card.

Sound is working. Not sure what happened but I just plugged the speakers into the mobo line out and it worked, whereas it did not before (or did I have the wrong jack :scratch:). I suppose the nVidia driver install must have done something. Whatever, all's well that ends well. It's great to have a fully usable linux box.

On to NVDec! Oy, lots of dependencies.

Wanna buy my 8800 real cheap? You can start an nVidia museum. :idea:

Upgrading to the 9600GT was heaven:

Looks like the 3090 is good for at least the rest of this year:

The comments are amusing and informative.

Successfully installed the CUDA toolkit (required GL and GLU libraries as well as the developer files and several non-obvious environment variable changes). Successfully ran the CUDA nbody sample application as root. I need to get things working for my non-root login. Then everything should be good to go for the NVDec install. First, I'll make a system backup to stabilize this milestone.

Let me say this: I understand why linux is not taking off for "normal" users. :lol:

No museums, just want a 3080

That's why every so often I play with it and then move back to Win
That, and the lack of apps

I'll sell you my 3090 for $5000. Better than some prices on ebay.

:belly-laugh:

Actually, linux is growing on me, but I'm not a "normal" user.

Got CUDA working on my non-root account.

Coming from you it means a lot! I'm a very industrious squirrel. For example, during last year's apple harvest (that's almost four times my weight):
