In your howto you propose nvidia.tar.bz2 which include
/etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-installer-disable-nouveau.conf
but you do nothing with it (does it go with nvidia.sh?):

Notice that /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-installer-disable-nouveau.conf porteus stock is already set to:

Code: Select all

# generated by nvidia-installer
blacklist nouveau
options nouveau modeset=0

I was wondering about that myself, and I have not have the time to research about all that nvidia.sh and all other components of Blaze method is really doing. I presume he can enlighten us on that enigma. :)

You mean in the .run file? When I recall right about what had to be done to create a nvidia module (which doing all by hand and without Blaze scripted help is years ago, so probably I am not recalling it 100% correct) you also have to set nvidia-installer-disable-nouveau.conf when booting the system to just compile the nvidia driver.

blacklist.xzm and nvidia.tar.bz2 are the same. Maybe merging the final driver nvidia.xzm and blacklist.xzm would be the best thing to do, thus blacklisting included in the driver. What do you think?

I agree, it should be merged. It is only needed once. And can be inserted into the driver by xzm2dir it out of e.g. nvidia.xzm .

When I wrote a Russian article, it was 2016, and a lot has changed.
blacklist.xzm and nvidia.tar.bz2 are the same

Do you have a downloaded Version?
I always get a Internal Server Error and the download fails.
