Install NVIDIA Driver nvidia-tesla-470-driver 4 NVIDIA Geforce 760 GTX

Hello,

The NVIDIA Geforce 760 GTX is detected at desktop startup and the driver is installed. This goes wrong, the desktop does not start anymore

Solution:

1. start Q4OS in repair mode (bootmenu 2. point).
2. login as root
3. you have to blacklist nouveau driver (following points 4.-6.)
4. Create the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
4.a For ex: 

nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf

5. Add the following lines:

blacklist nouveau
options nouveau modeset=0

6. Save & quit
7.

update-initramfs -u

8. 

reboot

9. start Q4OS in repair mode (bootmenu 2. point).
10. login as root
11.

apt update

12.

apt install nvidia-tesla-470-driver

13.

reboot

This solution works for me.

~$ lspci -nnk | grep "VGA\|'Kern'\|3D\|Display" -A2
