I’m not too familiar with downgrading packages, but from the little information I could find with my google-fu, I know I should be able to downgrade using a cached tar. But uh, this warning popped up and I don’t really know what I’m doing so I stopped. Is there some other command I should’ve inputted before this?

Do you need to downgrade from some 470 version to another … or are you trying to use it instead of 495 ?

I am trying to downgrade from 495.44 back to 470.

Then you are doing it the wrong way.

Wow I feel really dumb now. Thank you for this.

No need to feel dumb!
But yes, that should get you sorted. Let us know if it does not.

Everything seems to be in working order. nvidia-smi shows 470.86. :smiley:

Downgrade worked perfectly.
Unfortunately nvidia-495 broke all of my wine games
