Package: nvidia-legacy-390xx-driver
Version: 390.144-1

I have an odd issue. On a newly installed Debian 11 (bullseye) system, I cannot get the nvidia-legacy-driver-390 drivers to work. During the installation, it prompts me if I want to install the driver for this card even though it's not supported (but it is, it's a Geforce GTX 470) and I select no. I see that it's trying to configure: nvidia-legacy-check_460.91.03-1_amd64.deb

Odd right? I purged everything out for nvidia with: apt purge --autoremove *nvidia* and then did a: apt install nvidia-legacy-390xx-driver -s

It tries to install (in addition to normal 390xx packages):

Inst nvidia-legacy-check (460.91.03-1 Debian:11.0/stable [amd64])
Inst nvidia-alternative (460.91.03-1 Debian:11.0/stable [amd64])
Inst nvidia-egl-common (460.91.03-1 Debian:11.0/stable [amd64])
Inst nvidia-modprobe (460.32.03-1 Debian:11.0/stable [amd64])
Inst libnvidia-cfg1 (460.91.03-1 Debian:11.0/stable [amd64])
Inst nvidia-persistenced (460.32.03-1 Debian:11.0/stable [amd64])
Inst nvidia-vulkan-common (460.91.03-1 Debian:11.0/stable [amd64])

I've never ran into this before. Again, brand new install of Debian 11 x86_64 with the default 5.10.0-8-amd64 and contrib/non-free enabled.

Let me know what other info you need.

Thank you.

I confirmed this also happens in Testing (bookworm) aside from it pulling in Nvidia 470 packages instead. I tested this on the same machine but in a bookworm chroot with: apt install nvidia-legacy-390xx-driver -s
