Update trouble on linux59!

linux59 doesn’t support Nvidia drivers so i triyed back to linux54 using
“sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux54 rmc” but it doesn’t work (((

проверка зависимостей…
ошибка: не удалось подготовить транзакцию (не удалось удовлетворить зависимости)
:: removing linux59 breaks dependency ‘linux59’ required by linux-latest

Error: ‘rmc’ aborted because the kernel failed to install or canceled on removal.

nivida doesn’t support 5.9 yet. I can’t read Cyrillic, but if you want to remove kernel 5.9, you have to remove the package linux-latest, too (thats just a wrapper to install the newest kernel version)
you could also use kernel 5.8, it you don’t want to go back to 5.4.

I would suggest using mhwd to install the drivers:

sudo mhwd -i pci video-nvidia-455xx

i think it only work without CUDA or something like that ^^

I think they’ve addressed the issue as per their latest blogpost:
