nvidia-driver broken after kernel update

Briefly describe your issue below:
After the update to kernel 5.1.0-parrot1-3t-amd64, dkms can’t build the nvidia-driver modules for the kernel. Henceforth I can’t boot into the GUI

What version of Parrot are you running?
Parrot Security 4.6 amd64, Kernel 5.1.0-parrot1-3t-amd64

What method did you use to install Parrot?
Debian Standard

Configured to multiboot with other systems?
yes

If there are any error messages or relevant logs, post them below:

Yeah I also have a similar problem. I will let you know when we will find a workaround.

What I got from the dkms log, two kernel header files are missing that are needed for building the module. I tried using the shown commands, but that lead to another Error about a missing Makefile

I just fixed these problems, please wait a little so we will roll an update. If you are interested what was changed, checkout my fork: https://nest.parrotsec.org/h0tw4t3r/nvidia-current-418.56-fork-5.1rc/commit/d46649862f5a4a86392d77f505e8f292d22ee65a

Thanks a lot for your swift help, your fork is very interesting. Do you have an approximate ETA for the update? I’d love to use my system again without having to reinstall

I have actually gone through the full installation and it did not help. I can still load 4.19 and function. I cannot wait to have the update come out.
i7-6700k
32GB ddr4
GTX nividia 1080

My system is having gtx nvidia 960 and my Parrot run well without nvidia-driver package. xserver-xorg-video-nvidia is enough for regular display i guess.

I’ve wrote a quick hack here: kernel update broke broadcom driver

Hmm, i am not sure that it is possible for nvidia to work without it’s own module. Probably it starts somehow, can you check lsmod | grep nvidia if its module is loaded? Because I think that you use integrated card, but not discrete.

Parrot install xserver-xorg-video-all by default, and xserver-xorg-video-nvidia is NVIDIA binary Xorg driver while nvidia-driver is This metapackage depends on the NVIDIA binary driver and libraries. It means my system is display X11 with its Nvidia support.
