So you've run a random patch script for specific kernel versions against a kernel version it does not support, and are surprised that it doesn't work?

What makes you think this is in any way Devuan related? Have you tested against an equal Debian version and found it worked there?

Re: Devuan Ceres - X not starting at kernel 6.4 + 340.108 driver

its not "random" script
its working solution
its working for me at Artix(6.4kernel) and Fedora(6.4kernel) but not at Devuan(6.4kernel)
6.3 its mean 6.3+ kernel support
source for patch is here
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/nvidia-340xx

Re: Devuan Ceres - X not starting at kernel 6.4 + 340.108 driver

What's the big idea using nVidia blob with this old card. Use nouveau or Xorg modesetting driver. My laptop has newer card than yours, I tested it with blob and nouveau and modesetting and for 2D applications there is no difference, actually FOSS drivers are snappier.
Note, no FOSS Xorg driver will run if you pass nomodesetting to your kernel.

Re: Devuan Ceres - X not starting at kernel 6.4 + 340.108 driver

So your nvidia kernel module is crashing. Not that unexpected with obsolete driver and newer operating system. I recite, ditch it. There is nothing to win by using the blob on this old card. Any hardware acceleration it may have had in its heyday is obsolete and useless now. Getting rid of proprietary driver which taints your system is a plus.

Why do you need such a new kernel if you use old video card?

Problem only at Devuan Ceres, at Artix and Fedora 38 all works good with 6.4 kernel + 340.108 patched

If you use apt to install nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver it may well pull in the original unpatched /etc/init.d/nvidia-persistenced.
Have you tried replacing it with my patched version and then restarting it?

:~$ sudo service nvidia-persistenced restart

Re: Devuan Ceres - X not starting at kernel 6.4 + 340.108 driver

@deepforest . . . There is no "Deadalus" at Devuan (or anyplace else afaik).

PLEASE stop posting erroneous technical information on this forum and correct your previous spelling errors that might confuse other users. I am tired of cleaning up your mess.

Then . . . learn how to spell DAEDALUS correctly so our search engine will find the actual Devuan distribution to which you are referring.

Thanks for helping to make this forum a more accurate resource for other users.

Re: Devuan Ceres - X not starting at kernel 6.4 + 340.108 driver

Well . . . your English is better than my Ukrainian and we can understand what you are trying to say. Thing is that if information related to your installation is misspelled, our search engine won't be able to find solutions to any problems you might solve. Just a bit more attention would be really appreciated. Thanks. smile

OK. I'm assuming that the only problem we are trying to address is with nvidia-persistenced.

1) With your mouse select all of the script and then copy it, using the "Control" and "c" keys together.

I use Cinnnamon, sudo and the gedit editor and will illustrate using these. If you use su -  rather than sudo and another text editor just change to suit.

2) Open a terminal window.

3) in the terminal type:

sudo gedit /etc/init.d/nvidia-persistenced

This should open the nvidia-persistenced init code in the editor.

4) Select all the text with your mouse.

5) Press the 'Control' and' v' keys together to paste my version in place of the existing text.

6) Save the updated code. In 'gedit' there is a save button.

7) Close gedit.

7) in the terminal restart nvidia-persistenced by typing:

sudo service nvidia-persistenced restart

8) Close the terminal.

@Marjorie
Understood, replace original content ofsudo gedit /etc/init.d/nvidia-persistenced with yours version of script
Thank you i will try when will be at unstable
