Updating nvidia drivers debian

I figured that if the current fallback is on the intel driver, maybe as the other driver is not active, I didn't need to deactivate it to install the new driver.

Among other things, such as the RAR archiver or Steam game platform, you will find drivers for your video card, Wi-Fi adapter and other hardware in “non-free.” If you need these, for example to play 3D video games or if your Wi-Fi isn’t working, enable “contrib” and “non-free.” Simply add the words at the end of each line, after “main.” The following is some text you can copy and paste: Your file might also contain different URLs instead of “deb.” Use “deb.debian.org,” as it has some advantages.

It dynamically redirects you to a server close to you.

With a static server you might notice that your computer hasn’t been automatically updating for days or weeks, while the server was offline.

For such situations, Debian has a special repository where you can upgrade certain pieces of software that you absolutely need to have.

Since it won’t always redirect you to the same server, there’s another advantage.

If you use a static address, such as ” debian.org/debian/,” if the server goes down, you won’t be able to download packages for that time.

In contrast, you might get weird conflicts on other distributions when trying to switch default packages.
