    After a short period with graphics bliss nvidia updates give below error. Any ideas welcome as
    many users have fairly modern cards installed or built in to devices. naughty sid is hard to
    blame as the drivers directly from Nvidia also throw same error. More like the lunacy from
    mr microsoft hero pottering to blame.

    Open drivers give terrible graphics performance and screen tearing performance on my system.

    xserver-xorg-video-nvidia : depends on: xserver-xorg-core (< 2:1.20.99) but 2:21.1.4-1.0nosystemd1
    will be installed.

    Looks like they will have to wait for Debian sid/testing to fix it.
    Since it is non-free, they may be in for a long wait.

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    Looks like the bullseye-backports one is trying to get installed and it is wrongly built on an older xorg

    Thanks anticapitalista, anyway its not just backports, must be waybackports,
    unstable sid and experimental are borked too, amd will love the responsible person.

    Was looking for equivalent radeon cards, 200 Euro plus, too much.

    Maybe I will try and install the driver package from NVidia website on my box tomorrow, others warned
    to wait. :-(.

    Been digging further, there is an old bug report thread
    https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=1005311

    Claimed fixed and closed. It was fixed for a few short weeks,
    wonder in the light of recent experience if some debian packages
    ever get QA lately.

    Will figure out how to file a fresh bug report. Sent to 1005311@bugs.debian.org

    Will try the workaround below later. Fails with same or similar error on
    Bullseye Testing and unstable…

    Just like all else I have tried with present debian drivers.

    $apt download xserver-xorg-video-nvidia nvidia-driver
    $sudo dpkg -i –force-depends nvidia-driver*.deb
    $sudo dpkg -i –force-depends xserver-xorg-video-nvidia*.deb

    Have at last managed to post a bug report, despite debian spam filter, IP filtering and
    dire warnings that I will need strong spam filtering on my mail account.

    The older now closed thread for same style bug shows movement only started when chief
    devs of other distros kicked ass. Philip Müller Manjaro was one of the first to do so.

    Unfortunately many of the heavyweights have own repos so the regression to trouble may
    well go unnoticed by them until something explodes.
