Nvidia warning at boot

Hi!, so much time since i posting, i havent had any problem in jessie, but since i installed ascii, everytime on boot this message appears:

[    0.770303] udevd[121]: Error running install command for nvidia

I have an Nvidia Geforce 450 GS and installed the propietary driver via synaptics, using nvidia-driver, apparently the system works fine and the nvidia panel shows that the driver is beign in use, if i type

inxi -G

it shows

Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA GF106 [GeForce GTS 450]
Display Server: X.org 1.19.2 driver: nvidia tty size: 190x49 Advanced Data: N/A for root

So apparently is correct, but dont know how to rid of this warning, and if i type

dmesg |grep nvidia

shows

[    0.770303] udevd[121]: Error running install command for nvidia
[    6.884605] nvidia: loading out-of-tree module taints kernel.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Nvidia warning at boot

it seems at every reboot it restores restricted kernel modules (to nvidia ) so the best method for working is  seems to be commenting out "install nvidia /sbin/lrm-video nvidia $CMDLINE_OPTS" line in "/etc/modprobe.d/lrm-video".

Re: Nvidia warning at boot

I dont have that file "/etc/modprobe.d/lrm-video", so i created a new one and added inside the line "install nvidia /sbin/lrm-video nvidia $CMDLINE_OPTS", but no difference, i dont know if i am doing something wrong, thanks.

Re: Nvidia warning at boot

I think you did the opposite of what Ogis suggested, which was to comment out the command.  You've added it.  Delete the file you created and look for a file that has that command.

grep "install nvidia" /etc/modprobe.d/*

should work to find the file that has that command if it exists.  IMO, if it works, you can just ignore the warning.  It is simply reminding you that you are running some non-free software.

Re: Nvidia warning at boot

Ok, sorry i have a mistake by add it in, well i removed the file "lrm-video" that i previously created and run the command:

grep "install nvidia" /etc/modprobe.d/*

And the result:

/etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf:install nvidia modprobe -i nvidia-current $CMDLINE_OPTS
/etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf:install nvidia-modeset modprobe nvidia ; modprobe -i nvidia-current-modeset $CMDLINE_OPTS
/etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf:install nvidia-drm modprobe nvidia-current-modeset ; modprobe -i nvidia-current-drm $CMDLINE_OPTS
/etc/modprobe.d/nvidia.conf:install nvidia-uvm modprobe nvidia ; modprobe -i nvidia-current-uvm $CMDLINE_OPTS

So what line should i comment out? im lost, the file "/etc/modrprobe.d/nvidia.conf" where appears all the lines referenced has this inside:

install nvidia modprobe -i nvidia-current $CMDLINE_OPTS

install nvidia-modeset modprobe nvidia ; modprobe -i nvidia-current-modeset $CMDLINE_OPTS

install nvidia-drm modprobe nvidia-current-modeset ; modprobe -i nvidia-current-drm $CMDLINE_OPTS

install nvidia-uvm modprobe nvidia ; modprobe -i nvidia-current-uvm $CMDLINE_OPTS

remove nvidia modprobe -r -i nvidia-drm nvidia-modeset nvidia-uvm nvidia

Thanks in advance for all your kind help.

Re: Nvidia warning at boot

Could anyone running the nvidia driver without problems (either on ascii or an earlier release) please run the following commands (they don't need to be run as root) and post the output:
dpkg-query --search nvidia-current-drm
dpkg-query --search nvidia-current-uvm
dpkg-query --search nvidia-current-modeset

That should tell us what package provides them.

Hello:

I have an up-to-date Devuan ASCII with Nvidia non-free drivers:

groucho@devuan:~$ uname -ap
Linux devuan 4.9.0-7-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.110-3+deb9u2 (2018-08-13) x86_64 GNU/Linux

[root@devuan groucho]# 

I've just come out of a problem I had, reinstalled the drivers and apparently things work OK. (?)
This is what dmesg says:

[root@devuan groucho]# dmesg | grep -i nvidia

[root@devuan groucho]# 

Q.: Shouldn't there be a dkms entry in dmesg?

The cards are using the driver:

[root@devuan groucho]# inxi -G
Graphics:  Card-1: NVIDIA G84GL [Quadro FX 370]
Card-2: NVIDIA G96GL [Quadro FX 580]
Display Server: X.org 1.19.2 driver: nvidia tty size: 147x54 Advanced Data: N/A for root
[root@devuan groucho]# 

These are the non-free drivers I have installed:

groucho@devuan:~$ dpkg --list | grep -i nvidia

Cleaned it up a bit.
Unless noted, all are 340.106-2~deb9u1.

WRT what you requested:

groucho@devuan:~$ dpkg-query --search nvidia-current-drm
dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern *nvidia-current-drm*
groucho@devuan:~$ dpkg-query --search nvidia-current-uvm
dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern *nvidia-current-uvm*
groucho@devuan:~$ dpkg-query --search nvidia-current-modeset
dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern *nvidia-current-modeset*
groucho@devuan:~$ 

Cheers,

A.

Re: Nvidia warning at boot

Thank you. The clue was you are running 4.9.0-7-amd64 while I was running 4.9.0-6-amd64. After apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade I get

Which is what I should get.
