    I have a Macbook with a graphic card ( 02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation MCP89 [GeForce 320M] (rev a2)
    I use “Debian Bullseye”,
    I have the following Nvidia-driver installed (Linux x64 (AMD64/EM64T) Display Driver | 275.09.07 | Linux 64-bit | NVIDIA 1)
    Is this the rigth-driver ?

    When I will install the driver, I get the following failure-message:

    Did you solve your problem? I have had similar problems with my Mac, but most of them were easy to fix because I found most solutions for my problems on the cleanmymac website. They have many articles with how-to steps, which makes it easy to get rid of most problems.
    I started using Mac recently, and it took me a lot of time to get used to it. I had no idea how to do most things, and tutorials were just the thing I needed. It took me a while to get used to everything, but now I love using my Mac. I still use my old laptop for games, but the Mac is for everything else.
