Nvidia drivers for Porteus 3.2 rc5

Post#1 by bshogeman » 05 Oct 2016, 07:55

The Nvidia drivers on dl.porteus.org seems not to be compatible with the latest Porteus version.
Downloading the latest nvidia package from USM seems not to be recognized or working. Maybe something extra is needed to make it work?
The Nvidia .run file can't be used because I use pxe boot for all clients. The clients are diskless. If must be a .xzm file so I can pack it within the porteus\modules folder in the initrd.xz

Check if this works for you. You have to use all these 3 xzm files:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/0vev7mr3x ... -1_SBo.xzm
http://www.mediafire.com/file/ud1bj498p ... cklist.xzm

Also, you have to copy & paste this over /etc/X11/xorg.conf before calling GUI (init 4)
