            You are booting in uefi mode.I found this information about the mac book 7.1
            http://wiki.archlinux.org/title/MacBookPro7,1#Nvidia
            http://askubuntu.com/questions/264247/proprietary-nvidia-drivers-with-efi-on-mac-to-prevent-overheating/613573#613573
            but there is always mentioned a black screen after nvidia installation, which is here not the case.

            Just to rule it out, did you use bootparamaters like failsafe ore savevideo to get the live stick to boot, before the installation of antiX?
            Before you installed the driver from control-centre, did you try to install it in another way?

                I tried # nvidia-xconfig and now i have the mentioned blackscreen after grub, i had this problem before but i never managed to solve it.

                I’m not sure what to do now

                    The touchy forum software didn’t like the second link and decided to say it’s spam, sorry.

                    I would guess there are leftovers from the first nvidia installation with smxi.
                    I am currently not familiar with the procedure for smxi to remove a driver again.but before a driver is reinstalled the old must first be removed completely.

                      I suspect the driver installation i did from smxi is still there even after reinstalling antix, not sure how to proceed now with the black screenn.. i can still ssh into it, any idea what to do?

                        If a reinstallation is OK for you , it’s the best way to go, I think.
                        Then please first try to install the nvidia driver with the software from control-centre.
                        Afterwards post the output from
                        inxi -Gxxx

                        Our answers have overlapped in time.
                        Do I understand correctly , after the installation with smxi you have already reinstalled ?

                          yes i’m reinstalling no problem

                          (btw, i read on smxi that my driver isnt supported after kernel 5.4, that’s why im using kernel 4.9)

                                  I just found this and it says the nvidia-legacy driver 340 is not available anymore in Bullseye.
                                  I am afraid that is true
