nvidia Error during boot

hi guys,

I've got 4.0 chimera running on an old PC using  legacy nvidia 340 driver.

during boot, screen display nvidia error:

[    1.300473] udevd[118]: Error running install command 'modprobe -i nvidia-legacy-340xx ' for module nvidia: retcode 1
[    1.302943] ACPI Warning: SystemIO range 0x0000000000000828-0x000000000000082F conflicts with OpRegion 0x0000000000000800-0x000000000000084F (\PMRG) (20200925/utaddress-204)
[    1.302957] ACPI: If an ACPI driver is available for this device, you should use it instead of the native driver
[    1.302989] lpc_ich: Resource conflict(s) found affecting gpio_ich

any idea on what this might be and how to fix it?   I installed legacy 340 driver from Ceres repo a while ago since  is not officially supported in chimera.

Re: nvidia Error during boot

The (1st) error message does nothing on my system, the module is clearly loaded.

$ lsmod | grep nvi

No idea about the following 3 lines. What exactly is the problem?

How was the nouveau kernel driver working on your system? Do you really need the proprietary nvidia driver? Uninstall nvidia can be a solution.

Re: nvidia Error during boot

yeah, it seems to show Nvidia is being used.  I prefer using nvidia driver since I use this pc for streaming movies online with firefox browser. 
I noticed that the performance has been degrading since i couldn't playback 720p movie in full screen without drag.
