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 :: Nvidia Legacy 96 - Starting Gdm - Xserver Fails

May 26, 2011

I recently installed the Nvidia proprietary drivers and I have a problem starting gdm. Xserver fails, only throwing a warning concerned to xkbcomp, something about ralt having two symbols... but just a warning anyway. Then, after waiting the screen flash between the tty and a black screen a few times;

i'm on the tty, from where I can "startx" without problem. I tried using the nv driver and gdm worked.. so i think it has relation with the nvidia drivers... If I start gdm from the tty, instead of using the startx command, then gdm appears but if I try to log in.. all freezes up.. Here's my xorg.conf generated by nvidia-xconfig: [URL]

Software :: NVIDIA XServer Driver Crashes ?

Dec 14, 2010

I'm running ubuntu 10.10 I have a Samsung Syncmaster 205BW Monitor and I needed a graphic accelerator to run my science software and to view full screen videos. so I installed the NVIDIA 96.43.19 Driver as recomanded by unbuntu. Well the server installs OK but doesn't completely communicate with my monitor, I'm using GeForce4 MX 440 with AGP8X/AGP/SSE2 Graphic card. I'm unable to set the correct Resolution which is 1680X1050, the driver only list 1280X1024 and doesn't list the correct one.Also the driver Crashes when I try to set the CPU scaling, it's locked on stretch mode. Also when ubuntu loads X it doesn't accept the Xserver settings I have entered in the driver Set Up.The additional driver screen also says the Driver is active but not in use. I sent a bug report to NVIDIA but they never answered me back.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Switch The Primary Within NVidia's Xserver App?

Jul 4, 2010

Currently Monitor 0 is the TV (S-video). I want it to be my Monitor. My attempts to change this are failing Seams I'm just tripping over some little thing:

Unbuntu 10.04
Graphics - NVidia 7600
Displays - 2
- Samsung LCD (DVI)
- TV (S-Video)

I do not see how to switch the primary within NVidia's xserver app. Background Info: In order to get the TV out working, I disconnected the Monitor and booted the system - The TV-out then worked for the first time. Reconnected the monitor and rebooted again - both worked..but TV is Monitor0. All other options failed me when I set this up the first time

Current xorg.conf
Code:

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVIDIA XServer Settings - Black Screen Of Death

Dec 11, 2010

I had Ubuntu 10.04 running fine. Then I got curious about NVIDIA XServer.

"ATI Technologies Inc RV380 [Radeon X600 (PCIE)]" - Video Card

I opened it up, clicked a settings change, and said OK.
It said you need to update your blah blah blah.
Then it said blah blah blah doesn't exist.
Then it said it would create it for me.
Then I said REBOOT!

Now I get a black screen of death.

The only way I can get anything to happen on my monitor that comes from this computer is to boot into the Install Disk and say "TRY UBUNTU".

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.

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

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

Feb 12, 2011

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. I don't know how to explain correctly so i tried to take a screenshot :

In this screenshot, you can see the black border. I haven't this problem if i use the free driver for my Nvidia but i can't to play with wine I tried with the driver on experimental repositories or the driver on Nvidia Website.

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,

xorg.log: [URL] ....
dmesg: [URL] ....

Apr 22, 2010

i installed the new beta 10.04 and it seemed right after the install and update that both nvidia hardware drivers were automatically install together. i deactivated both drivers. one driver showed the nvidia 173 driver and the other one showed "current" nvidia driver.

after a restart i then tried to activate the 173 driver. system required a restart. so i did. system booted to a black screen. i believe its at the desktop but i am unable to see it. i tried to hit esc at the boot screen to enter the grub menu but that didnt work.

Debian Multimedia :: Xserver Eating Memory?

Nov 21, 2010

I have installed Debian Lenny today from netinst cd. It all went good, hen I installed some basic utilities, daemons and libraries like dbus, hal, libgtk2.0, libasound2, alsa-utils, htop (for checking system load). Then I installed X.org with commandaptitude install -R xserver-xorg xserver-xorg-input-mouse xserver-xorg-input-kbd xserver-xorg-video-intel xinit xterm twmI used -R to pull less dependencies. When I ran startx X Server started, and I got on twm. But when I checked on htop, my memory usage was 175MB, and before starting X Server it was only 25MB. Why is X Server using so much memory on Lenny? I also have Debian Sqeeze on a different partition, it uses so much memory with all gnome services running+ iceweasel and amsn.

Debian Multimedia :: Second Xserver Has No Connected Output With Radeon DIS

Mar 26, 2016

My notebook thinkpad w500 has two video cards, intel / radeon. When i test some 3d games by wine or some videos by mpv using dri_prime=1 to dynamic enable radeon card, the game/video window always tearing, see bug report [URL] ....

So I try to start second xserver directly use radeon card, command like this:

$xinit /usr/bin/openbox-session -- :1 -ac -configdir radeon (/etc/X11/Xwrapper.config already changed to allowed_users=anybody)

I put 20-radeon.conf into /etc/X11/radeon, which is:
Section "Device"
Identifier "radeonGPU"
Driver "radeon"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
Option "DRI" "3"
EndSection

If i just put 20-intel.conf into /etc/X11/radeon (just use intel IDG), the second xserver runs ok. Just using radeon DIS the second xserver started without any conntected output. run DISPLAY=:1 xrandr could confirm that, all disconnetted, so it's black screen on second xserver vtn, and default xserver vt7 still ok.

Am i missing something to config second xserver using radeon DIS, or it's not possible...

Debian Multimedia :: Wheezy Warning: Keep Xserver-xorg-core 2:1.10.2-1?

Jun 19, 2011

I experienced this problem on Friday but didn't have time to write a warning.A couple of days ago, xserver-xorg-core 2:1.10.2-1+b1 reached Testing before a corresponding dependency (recommendation), thus breaking the hardware acceleration. The issue is (better) described here (1) by a developer.A possible solution is to keep (2) the previous version (2:1.10.2-1) or, if you already installed the faulty one, to grab the former version from Debian Snapshots (3) and downgrade the package.Because the error was a simple path change, one could also keep the new version of xserver-xorg-core and link the DRI Mesa modules to the directories that are inspected now (as described here [4]).The issue has already been addressed (5) and a new version should appear in Testing shortly.[URL]

Debian Multimedia :: Jessie KDE Broke After Log Out Session

Mar 2, 2015

A few weeks ago I have installed Debian Jessie on KDE Desktop Version. I have a problem with the Display Manager Kdm, if i log out session the monitor turns off (DVI No Signal), the only option that I have it's forced shutdown or reboot via power button. I try another DM lightdm and this works fine. But i liked to know why log out session crash on Kdm.

Adding : TerminateServer=true at the end of /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc (Section :[X-:*-Core], solve the issue.

Debian Multimedia :: X Broke After Dist-upgrade

Mar 20, 2011

After yesterday's apt-get dist-upgrade, I lost my higher screen resolutions. Only had 800x600 and 640x480. After trying to re-install the Nvidia drivers several different ways without success, I ended up purging xorg and xserver and then starting from scratch, re-installing the drivers. In doing so, I either found the problem, or created another, ha.I think part of the problem was that I mixed Nvidia proprietary and debian installations and the update broke the drivers.I am now unable to install xorg or xserver because I can not remove/purge libgl1-nvidia-alternatives.

Ubuntu :: Xserver With Nvidia Doesn't Work 10.04

Nov 13, 2010

It does this all the time whenever I reboot and I hadn't rebooted my PC in months simply because it's a GOD DAMN pain to figure this crap out. I need a REAL fix.

My computer turns off and boots, it goes directly into Recovery Menu. It refuses to boot normally. I load low graphics mode, it doesn't even let me make changes to the configuration file, OR let me have ONE session in low graphics mode. I've tried reconfiguring xserver, re-installing nvidia drivers, STILL the same effing garbage. It's starting to **** me off. I'm mostly a Linux noob, and I hate trying all these "tips" that don't work to make my stupid display work. I use gnome. Any advice, tips whatever to make this work? If you need something, I'll try my best to get it but I'm on my other computer right now so displaying my configuration files will be a pain. :/ Before I installed vesa, low graphics mode wouldn't work because it said the vesa module didn't exist and it also said no screens.
