      I tried to get antix 22 or antix 23 on a macbook pro mid 2013 with NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M

      On the first run of “nvidia-detect-mx”, it suggested legacy-390 on antix 22 and nvidia-tesla-470-driver on antix 23.

      After try install the suggested driver, either 22 or 23 fails to start GUI.
      Then “nvidia-detect-mx” says this graphics card is not supported and I may need to check MX test repo.

        Are there any ways to install Nvidia driver for “NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M” manually?

          Not sure why nouveau is not good enough? But I am MAC ignorant.

          Good luck and Howdy and Welcome.

          The 470.xx driver supports the following set of GPUs.

          NVIDIA GPU product Device PCI ID Subdevice PCI ID
          GeForce GT 745M 0FE3
          GeForce GT 750M 0FE4
          GeForce GT 750M 0FE9

            How do I install nouveau-driver?

            Also this first reference is too old, any newer reference?

              Hi symbol, if this happens something went wrong during the installation and what exactly happened is recorded in /var/log/ddm.log
              So it would be useful if you post this here before you reboot.
              If something goes wrong during the installation, which is always mentioned by ddm-mx in the form of a mentioned error or similar, you can avoid being left without a GUI after the reboot by uninstalling the nvidia driver beforehand.
              sudo ddm-mx -p nvidia

              In my experience so far, the most common problem is that the nvidia driver cannot be compiled on the kernel used.

              How do I install nouveau-driver?

              The nouveau driver should be used by default. If you post the output of
              inxi -Gxxx
              or
              inxi -zv7
              we can see which driver is used currently.

                I see,then I never sucessfully installed antix linux with nouveau nvidia drivers.

                I have to switch to bodhilinux and will get back debugging with you if I have chance. Really love antix linux

                  What I can tell right now is that nouveau driver never works for GeForce GT 650M Mac Edition for both antix 22 or antix 23.

                      So the inxi you posted is from bodhilinux ?If it works for you the same nvidia driver 470.xxxx is available on antiX21 and 23 (debian bullseye/bookworm) and certainly ddm-mx will also try to install this driver as long as the repo sources are not changed.
                      I’m still guessing it’s a kernel problem, the nvidia cannot get compiled on the kernel.A first attempt to a solution would be to upgrade to the latest available version of the currently used kernel.Next try would be another kernel like the 6.xx kernels, always the most recent versions.

                      You said its a GeForce GT 750M in the first post, the inxi is from GeForce GT 650M.That’s why we prefer to see
                      the inxi -zv7 report from the installed or live antiX.We can see antiX version, the kernel in use and the specific hardware.

                        Yeah, it is currently from Bodhi.

                        I hope Antix Linux could install this driver/ or some working driver automatically on installation. Actually some linux initially does not install nvidia driver, but they will NOT boot into black screen, using nvidia alleviate the overheating problem.

                          With inxi -Ga I also have the info: “non-free: 545.xx+ status: current” in one of my GPU… so the better nvidia driver is: 545.xx , but this GPU also works with nvidia-legacy-390xx-driver. (and nouveau module, for desktop uses, not for games)

                              @caprea … Yes I guess it is the same version into antiX, but actually I am under MX and some repositories are not the same so it is better to use : nvidia-detect-mx first… and then for exemple: sudo ddm-mx -i nvidia -f nvidia-legacy-390xx-driver

                              But nvidia drivers are not always easy to install under Linux (need the same GCC version, no GCC pluggins .config into the kernel, etc) I have also tried the latest one 525.125.06 but without success so far. (it is my first nvidia GPU into Linux so I have to learn too.

                                  On my MacBook Pro mid-2013 with nVidia (the same MacBook as the the thread originator’s) nouveau is just fine, performing all the graphics I need, but perhaps the graphics performance requirements of @symbol are much higher. Nouveau performs much better with later kernels but not quite the same performance as nVidia with earlier kernels. I think there still a significant difference, but installing nVidia graphics driver has been increasingly more difficult over time.
                                  And heat might be another factor here in result of performance toll.
