Specs: Quadro P1000 (compatible with driver version 440.100, attempting to get version 450.57) kernel: 5.7.11-050711-generic Ubuntu 20.04 focal fossa
Key problem: I've been unable to determine if I can actually get the newest gcc version on ubuntu 20.04. (currently have found 10.1 experimental), the newest I can seem to find is 9.3.0 (but newer versions are available on other platforms). currently I am unable to compile the drivers correctly (Nvidia's run scripts with dkms), and I am getting very nasty warning messages on startup and shutdown (they're long, and unrelated/unecessary if I can get this to work).
The installation script it advises me to check says that the driver was compiled with version 10.2.0. it seemed to me that I could not download (or at least couldn't find) the correct version for ubuntu, I thought I could downgrade, but got the same error message.
I currently have 9.3.0 and 10.1 installed, I'm somewhere between a beginner and an intermediate, but I've relied heavily on apt to obtain my packages, and am not sure (without a provided address for wget) how to install the package otherwise (at the time of writing, I am currently stuck with the command line).
I could force it to ignore the versions, but I'm already getting ACPI errors (unhandled region) and DC state mismatches, which suggests to me that I've done something very wrong, and I (hope) that this is it.
I know I'm almost certainly omitting necessary information, but I'll update it as necessary.
I'm aware that I can use apt to install the Nvidia drivers, but I have done so twice and had the second screen stop working, so I would like to use the Nvidia run file so that I don't have to deal with it again.
