Description

I currently have a EVGA GeForce GTX 460 (nvidia) graphics card installed in my PCI-e slot on my desktop PC. Works fine and is recognized by Windows 10 immediately with no issues.

However, the driver for this card (Nvidia 390) is not recognized during installation using Ghostbsd v20.01 (64 bit) dvd. When I select the nvidia 390 driver at the screen, the installation hangs up and I am forced to reboot and install and use GhostBSD without any graphics driver. I will attach screenshots of the messages I'm getting during install.

The main error messages that are displayed are:

Kldload nvidia —-error module already loaded or in kernal.

Number of created screens does not match number of connected devices (I only have one monitor installed in an hdmi slot).

Is this a bug in the install process?

#4 Updated by ericbsd about 1 month ago

  • Subject changed from Nvidia 390 driver won't recognize Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 graphics card to Xconfig display Nvidia 390 when 440.31 is the one installed by default
  • Status changed from In Progress to Done
  • % Done changed from 0 to 100

I am changing the title since it is irrelevant to the change I made and 390 is not installed by default.
