I was trying to install nVidia's linux driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-331.49.run) with their automated script but had some issues regarding tty not opening after I disabled Nouveau.
My current Debian is 7.4 64 bits.
I did the following:
> Stoped the X service, as it will not start with X started.
# /etc/init.d/kdm stop
Went to console using ctrl + alt + F1
> Then, I started nVidia's script
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8762-pkg1.run
> After beginning the instalation process, there was error saying that Nouveau could not be enabled during instalation, so it asked me to stop it by adding the following conf file:
> Ok. After that I rebooted and was back to gdm3 login.
So, when I try to open the console with ctrl+alt+F1 it just takes me to a blank screen with blinking cursor and nothing else, then I have to come back using F7.
Gdm actually opens as X is started but if I login and stop X to install the driver it leaves me with that blank screen again.
My assumption is that the tty is not openning becuse Nouveau is blacklisted by nVidia's conf file, but what can I do to make it work?
Am I skipping any step?
Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
