NVidia 5.35 Update

by Brent Stewart on Thursday, Oct 19, 2023

Two months ago, I warned of issues with the 5.35 driver

Since the initial post, I tried 5.35 after a rev and found that it worked well. Until today.


I used nvidia-smi this time and was able to see that - although dpkg showed the files installed, the driver wasn’t loaded. I found some instructions from Michael Murphy on [] that helped to resolve this.

sudo apt purge ~nnvidia
sudo apt install nvidia-driver-535
sudo reboot

Keep this handy

There’s definitely something funky about 5.35. I haven’t had this problem before and this machine has been stable for a couple years now. It’s probably a good idea to keep this idea in mind when you install the latest drivers.
