Linux won't start after trying to install nvidia nvenc
« on: April 23, 2021, 08:26:22 pm »
I entered the command:
sudo apt install nvidia-cuda-toolkit libnvidia-encode1

After restarting linux, it got stuck on:
Listening on load/save rf switch status /dev/rfkill watch
I waited a long time and forcibly restarted it

Linux startup now stops at:
Started GNOME Display Manager

Linux Debian

Have you tried removing the offending software?  Boot with the installation medium, if you have it and open a Terminal.  Try entering "sudo apt remove nvidia-cuda-toolkit libnvidia-encode1" and then restart.  Does the system boot then?
