[SOLVED] Having problems to install NVIDIA Drivers

I am trying to install my drivers the way I always did, but at this point it is no longer working. I am sure my GPU supports this driver.

$ sudo mhwd -i pci video-nvidia-390xx

kernel 5.1 is EOL, so change kernels

also make sure you are up to date and mirrors are synced

also -- you could just use the auto-install option .. 390 is as low as nvidia goes .. who knows, maybe you can use a newer version.

I upgrade to linux kernel 5.2 and it solved my problem, thanks for your help and thanks for your suggestion too, but my GPU doesn't support drivers forward 390.
