Thx in advance for your help
After rebooting everything went fine.
The command proposed by the host seems effective even if no message is displayed.
Thx a lot

You should use the drivers from nvidia, the open source ones are not the best experience when playing hon but good that its fixed.

reboot fixing this probably resulted in the nvidia module being loaded.
Also that bash 1liner is no longer needed. hon has been patched to correct the issue requiring it
