Debian Multimedia :: X Won't Start After Installing Nvidia Driver

Mar 27, 2015

I tried to install drivers for my GeForce GT 630M graphic card. At first, I just installed nvidia-detect and there was a suggestion to install nvidia-driver:

Code: Select allsudo apt-get install nvidia-detect
nvidia-detect
sudo apt-get install nvidia-driver

After reboot, there was a sad ?monitor like this one: [URL] ....

After first failure, I tried to use Debian wiki tutorial for Debian Jessie (probably I should have done this at first )

Code: Select allaptitude install linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,') nvidia-legacy-304xx-kernel-dkms
echo -e 'Section "Device"
Identifier "GPU Nvidia"
Driver "nvidia"
EndSection' > /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf

But also without success. Now I can't use X at all.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: X Does Not Start After Nvidia Driver Installation On 10.10?

Feb 16, 2011

I am trying to install ubuntu 10.10 on my new computer: an Asus U33Jc. It is a 64bit machine. Everything seems Ok until I try to install the nvidia drivers. First, I tried to install it through the graphical interface as it popped up shortly after the install. Then, I tried to install the most up to date driver (290.19.36) found on nvidia's website. In both cases I get the same problem.

When I boot the computer it freezes at startup typically at the stage: "Checking battery state..." but not only (sometines before or after). In any case I never get to a graphical interface. I looked at many forums on the web (here here here and here for instance). But no solution work so far. Apparently there is a conflict with nouveau so I have blacklisted it. It seems the computer does not send the information on the good output, so I tried to twick my xorg.conf in different ways without any result.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Installing Nvidia Graphics Driver On 10.04?

Oct 3, 2010

I am having problems installing the graphics driver (from the Nvidia website) for my Nvidia Vanta card on Ubuntu 10.04. I disabled X via terminal and then I ran a Virtual Console. With the virtual console I ran the chmod command and the went through the installation. It did bring up a message with something about my distro not having a pre-configured script (or something like that) and asked me if I would like to continue anyway. I choose Yes and the installation failed.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Installing Nvidia Mx200 Driver - X Will Not Load ?

Dec 31, 2010

I am trying to setup a computer with xubuntu 10.10 for my dad. It is mostly working, but flash animations/games run somewhat poorly. I think I might be able to fix this by using the non-free nvidia drivers, but I cannot seem to get them installed.

Sysinfo reports that the video card is an nvidia geforce mx200, so I downloaded the nvidia 96 driver package from the repositories, ran the configuration program, & rebooted. As you may guess, x did not load.

I have been working on this intermittently for a few weeks, & I do not remember everything I might have tried to fix it, but here is what I am sure of:

Sysinfo reports that the video card is an nvidia geforce mx200

when i try "sudo modprobe nvidia," I get the message "FATAL: Module nvidia not found." "sudo modprobe nvidia-96" gives no such error.

When I check the Xorg.0.log, I find:

The nouveau driver does not seem to work either, but if I remove the xorg.conf file, x works okay. How to get Flashplayer running more smoothly.

Debian :: Installing Latest Nvidia Driver On Debian Squeeze ?

Nov 9, 2010

I installed Debian Squeeze with no issues. I went to install latest Nvidia driver as done previously with Lenny. Used instructions that worked on lenny from "the trooper" [url]

Downloaded th latest driver for my GeForce 7300 GS vidio card, driver package NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12.run

Used "method # 2 as described in HOW TO,as it worked perfectly in the past on Lenny. Only syntax I changed was instead of gdm I typed gdm3 as it appears that is the new name for gnome in Squeeze.

Did as folows:

Now the trouble showed up, Unfortunatly I can only go off my memory. A question was asked stating that something did not match, it needed a 3 and the driver had a 4 version or somethng of this sort. then it asked if I new what I was doing (and I lied) and selected yes. And whammo, it didn't work. (This question was asked when i did in Lenny and it is working perfectly still on that system). I now can not boot to GUI, I notice when system boots it starts in "S" mode although I select normal boot from grub2.

Not too bad if I got to reinstall as little is on the system. I just want to know what I am missing on the instalation deal or should I be going about this difrently with Squeeze.

Debian Configuration :: Colors Too Bright After Installing Nvidia Driver?

Aug 17, 2011

After I've installed nvidia-vdpau-driver 280.13-1 from debian testing repositories, all the colors on the screen became too bright, except dark colors.

I've tried to change the values from Brightness, Contrast and Gamma, in NVIDIA X Server Settings -> X Server Color Correction, but it doesn't bring everything back to normal.

Either the nvidia driver has problems, or I don't know how to calibrate. But before I installed nvidia-vdpau-driver, I had the nouveau display driver (experimental), and all colors were displayed normally, the same as in Windows 7 and XP.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia G8800GTS Proprietary Driver Not Downloading / Installing - Solve This?

May 20, 2010

Very new to linux, just downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 and installed it, dual boot, no problems with initial installation.

Trying to install graphics card driver for:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce 8800 GTS 512] (rev a2)

Using Administration -> Hardware Devices

I selected the recommended driver and clicked activate. Download started then failed with error message:

SystemError: Failed to fetch http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...ntu3_amd64.deb Connection failed [IP: 91.189.88.30 80]

Screenshot attached.

Tried several times now and the download doesn't even seem to start any more.

My Internet connection is 3 mobile broadband, which may have something to do with it, bit it seems to be working well at the moment.

Debian Configuration :: Installing Nvidia Graphics Card - Driver Error

Apr 28, 2010

I revived my old desktop (failed psu), and installed debian squeeze using netinst. It has a nvidia geForce 7600GT card. The driver in squeeze does not work very well, so I downloaded nvidia driver-installer. When I run it, it comes back with an error saying the kernel (I assume the nvidia graphics kernel) is compiled with gcc4.3, but the system is using gcc4.4. Using synaptic manager, I installed gcc3.3, but same error.

Next I tried to uninstall gcc4.4 and it gave a warning the system might not be usable. I did not understand it, but I went ahead and uninstalled gcc4.4 and guess what, the system is not usable, and I have to re-install squeeze. Not a big loss, since I do not have much in it. How to install this nvidia driver, specifically, how do I get switch to gcc4.3 from gcc4.3? Also, the squeeze install gave me 2.6.33-trunk-amd64, and 2.6.33-3-amd64. How do I get rid of ...trunk-amd64? Do I just delete it from grub?

Debian Configuration :: Display Size Wrongly Detected After Installing NVIDIA Driver

May 17, 2010

Using squeeze with a GeForce4 MX 440 video card (NVIDIA) I have a monitor (4/3 aspect ratio, 1024x768 usually), and a TV connected via S-video After installing the NVIDIA driver using the NVIDIA binaries I managed to have a cloned twin screen configuration working.

However, the monitor is (wrongly) detected as having size 1824x768 (aspect ratio is widescreen) Using system monitor, I can set the correct size, but only for one session; besides, the login screen too is messed up the xorg.conf file seems right: proper resolution modes are set; xorg.0.log too

Debian Multimedia :: How To Keep Out Proprietary NVIDIA Driver

Feb 20, 2016

Debian Jessie kernel 3.16.0 AMD64. Legacy GeForce 66oo GT video card.

I just re-installed Jessie via Debian non-free DVD. When I run apt-get update && apt-get upgrade, the screen says to the effect :

"Before Nouveau can be used, must remove Nvidia config from xorg.conf and xorg.conf.d"

Is there a simple way to keep Nouveau and blacklist or prevent Nvidia driver from being automatically installed in the first place?

Debian Multimedia :: Nvidia Driver On 2 Kernels ?

Feb 10, 2010

Running debian sid. I have the Debian 2.6.32-trunk kernel installed and the liquorix kernel.

I use sgfxi to install the nvidia driver. Normally sgfxi allegedly strips out all prior nvidia, using both the nvidia uninstaller and purging any debian nvidia packages.

Today when I updated the liquorix kernel and reinstalled the drivers for the new kernel, it was still installed in the old kernel. Normally it is just installed in one kernel.

Graphics:
Card nVidia G96 [GeForce 9400 GT] X.Org 1.7.4 Res: 1280x1024@50.0hz

GLX Renderer GeForce 9400 GT/PCI/SSE2 GLX Version 3.2.0 NVIDIA 190.53 Direct Rendering Yes

I guess the questions is, is this a new feature or just some weird glitch? Also I only get the nvidia splash on the Debian kernel and not on the liquorix kernel.

Debian Multimedia :: Desktop Error After Nvidia Driver Install

Nov 8, 2015

Problem summary:

Error - "Oh no! Something has gone wrong." and "A problem has occurred and the system can't recover. Please log out and try again."

How to get back to original nouveau driver after failed nvidia driver install?

What probably happened was a wrong nVidia driver install from the repository.. Because never had any problems earlier, but after I installed some nVidia packages, I get this error.

I already tried to remove nvidia driver by
# aptitude purge nvidia-kernel-dkms nvidia-glx
It was successful.

Then I reinstalled Xorg Nouveau driver and all its denpendencies by
# aptitude install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
It was also successful.

But problem still occurs..

Debian Multimedia :: NVidia Driver Not Working With External Monitor?

Mar 15, 2010

I have a Dell XPS M1330, which has a GeForce 8400M GS GPU. The binary (sigh) nVidia driver installed is version 190.53 (installed by sgfxi). This is working well: glxgears gives me about 2600 FPS and compiz is happy.An old Philips 170B is attached by VGA cable. I was looking to set up a method of switching resolution upon connecting to the monitor when working at the desk, since I don't like the 1280x800 resolution of the laptop.

nfortunately, I can't get any output on the external monitor. It does work under Ubuntu, which installed the 180 series binary driver. (Going to an earlier driver is an option, but I want to understand the problem.) Bottom line, I want to work under Debian.As far as I know, nVidia's proprietary driver doesn't support xrandr. At any rate, with he external 170B monitor attached and turned on, I get the following:$ xrandr -qScreen 0: minimum 320 x 175, current 1280 x 800, maximum 1280 x 800default connected 1280x800+0+0 0mm x 0mm

1280x80050.0*
1024x76851.052.0
960x540 53.0

Debian Multimedia :: Use The Free Driver For Nvidia But I Can't To Play With Wine?

I have a problem when i use the Nvidia driver and the latest version of Xorg (1.9.4) on Debian Sid. In fact, when i minimise a window (Nautilus, console or Chromium/Iceweasel), i see the window's black border and it's very slowly when i minimize or maximize it.

Debian Multimedia :: Xserver-common=2:1.11.0-1 Broke Nvidia Driver

Aug 30, 2011

xserver-common (2:1.10.4-1) was upgrade today in Sid to xserver-common (2:1.11.0-1) breaking my nvidia driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-280.13.run). There is a temporary fix as showen below.

Section "ServerFlags"

Option "IgnoreABI" "true"

EndSection

Some problems do exist and downgrading may be a better option.

I need to look at bugreports at nividia but not sure how. LOL guess it's time to google.

Debian Multimedia :: Proprietary Nvidia Driver - High CPU Usage Xorg

Aug 7, 2015

I recently switched from jessie to stretch on both i encountered a jerky ui in gnome 3. after a longer research i noticed xorg consumes over 80% of my first cpu-core while moving a window. for testing purposes i switched back to the nouveau driver and there is no high cpu usage while moving a window, also the ui is smooth.

i tried 3 different nvidia driver: the one from the debian repository, the current stable and beta driver from the nvidia site. i noticed on all 3 the same problem.

Code: Select alldaniel@Daniel-PC:~$ glxinfo | grep rendering
direct rendering: Yes
    GL_NV_path_rendering, GL_NV_pixel_data_range, GL_NV_point_sprite,
    GL_NV_path_rendering, GL_NV_pixel_data_range, GL_NV_point_sprite,
    GL_NV_path_rendering, GL_NV_pixel_buffer_object, GL_NV_polygon_mode,

Debian Multimedia :: Installing Nvidia Drivers In Lenny?

May 27, 2010

I'm still getting used to the system. I've been able to install a couple of packages like Disk Manager and Firefox, and was able to mount my ntfs drive. I've only learned some basic terminal commands, but I'm managing ok so far. That is until I looked into what was involved in installing the video drivers I need for my Nvidia 8400 GS card. (ouch!) I'm trying to follow the guide here: [URL] but I've run into a snag in the 'Overview' part: "0. Make sure APT has non-free and contrib sources (consult the sources.list(5) man page for help on doing this) " The link provided [URL] is dead. With only a basic understanding (next to none) of what the sources.list is for, I'm unsure how to fulfill step 0.
