Install the original Nvidia-Driver in Pisi Linux

Install the original Nvidia-Driver in Pisi Linux

You would lnstall the original Nvidia-Driver instead the Pisi Linux package here the Introducing for it.

At the first you need the Nvidia-Driver for your graphic card, go to the Nvidia Webpage on the Link ““, and for our Turkish User “”

Search now your right graphic card at the Driver Download Section and note you need for Pisi Linux the 64bit Driver.

When you have download the Driver we come to the next Step, you need to install any devel-packages
do it with the command:

 sudo pisi it -c system.devel  

It installs the devel-packages for the building of the Driver.

As next install the following.

 sudo pisi it dkms kernel-module-headers  

You need dkms and the kernel-module-headers for building the Nvidia-Kernel-Module.

So you must now remove the “Nouveau-Driver” type for it in the Terminal:

 sudo pisi rm xorg-video-nouveau  

When doing this Step not, you can not install the Nvidia-Driver, because Nvidia tolerate not the Nouveau-Driver.

Then open Dolphin with admin-rights use the Keys ALT+F2, it opens krunner and type there kdesu dolphin and give in your Root Password.

You have now open Dolphin as Root and go to /boot/grub2 and open the grub.cfg.

Or you can open the Terminal and type

 kdesu kate /boot/grub2/grub.cfg  

Search there the Kernel Line for the Kernel what Pisi Linux use, Pisi Linux 2.0 use Kernel 4.3.2 at the moment.

and add “blacklist=nouveau” so as you see it here:

 ### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/10_linux ###  
 menuentry 'Pisi GNU/Linux' --class pisi --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os $menuentry_id_option 'gnulinux-simple-13e41073-0541-4a8f-a463-d64b9a15e929' {  
 set gfxpayload=keep  
 insmod gzio  
 insmod part_msdos  
 insmod ext2  
 set root='hd0,msdos2'  
 if [ x$feature_platform_search_hint = xy ]; then  
 search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root --hint-bios=hd0,msdos2 --hint-efi=hd0,msdos2 --hint-baremetal=ahci0,msdos2 13e41073-0541-4a8f-a463-d64b9a15e929  
 search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 13e41073-0541-4a8f-a463-d64b9a15e929  
 echo 'Loading Linux 4.3.2 ...'  
 linux /boot/kernel-4.3.2 root=/dev/sda2 ro "blacklist=nouveau" quiet splash resume=/dev/sda1  
 echo 'Loading initial ramdisk ...'  
 initrd /boot/initramfs-4.3.2  

After it make a reboot, and no wondering when you have a big screen after the reboot.

when you have login after the reboot you can install your Nvidia-Driver.

Press the Keys “CTRL+ALT+F1” for the tty
when you there give in your username and your password, NOTE: At the tty you can not use the numeric keypad, use the Numbers on the top.

type “sudo su” and give in your password.

Then type:

 service sddm stop  

in Pisi Linux 2.0

at Pisi Linux 1.2 you must type

 service xdm stop  

to stop the Display Manager.

after it go to the Directory with the Nvidia-Driver with following command:

 cd /home/name/Downloads  

as example: “cd /home/groni/Downloads”sudo pisi rm xorg-video-nouveau

you can check it with the command “ls” , the ls command list all that what you have saved in the Download Folder.

As next step the Nvidia-Driver need the correct rights. Type the command

 chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-***.**.run  

Replace the * with the Numbers of the downloaded Driver.

After it you can run the install with the command

 sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-***.**.run  

Replace here again the * with the Numbers of the downloaded Driver.

Follow the Instructions when the Driver runs, answer all Questions with Yes or Y “also for install the 32bit-libs and registering the Nvidia-Module with DKMS”
after it ask the Driver to create nvidia-xconfig, also answer here with yes reboot and your Driver works now.
The Introducing step by step

1.) Download the Driver from or

2.) Install devel-packages with sudo pisi it -c system.devel

3.) Install dkms and kernel-headers with sudo pisi it dkms kernel-module-headers

4.) Remove the nouveau-driver with sudo pisi rm xorg-video-nouveau

5.) Blacklist the nouveau-driver in grub.cfg with blacklist=nouveau

6.) Go to the tty become root there, and stop the display-manager with service sddm stop for Pisi 2.0 or service xdm stop for Pisi 1.2

7.) Switch to the Driver with cd /home/name/Downloads

8.) Take a view in the Folder with ls command

9.) Change the rights for the Driver with chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-***.**.run

10.) Let the Driver install with sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-***.**.run

11.) Follow the Instructions from the Installer

12.) Answer with Yes to make nvidia-xconfig

13.) Reboot and enjoy your Nvidia-Driver

You can update the Nvidia-Driver when it gives a new version from tty with the command:

 sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-***.**.run --update  

or remove it with:

 sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-***.**.run --uninstall  

The one and only after a Kernel update from Pisi Linux you must repeat the steps 5 to 13 again.
