Fedora :: 3D Applications Not Finding Correct Nvidia LibGL
Jan 16, 2010
I have a new system I built this week. I have the nvidia drivers installed, but desktop effects, googleearth and Quake4 all try to load the /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 from mesa-libGL and fail to start.I have two other machines, both with nvidia video, and don't have the problem with them. I've looked for differences on the systems, but haven't located anything so far.
Code: Fedora 12 188.8.131.52-70.fc12.i686 GEFORCE GO 7400
When my notebook boots I get a high screen resolution. However, when I login it seems to go to a lower resolution that is not clear. I think this all started when I updated to a new kernel. So I reinstalled the nvida drivers using leigh's guide. However, I still can't seem to get it to display correctly.

I have installed Kubuntu Lucid x86 10.4 LTS for the first time. Has anyone got a link that explains how KPackageKit gets the IP address of the repositories? I can install packages using sudo apt-get install xxx OK . KpackageKit tells me I have updates from the repositories. I can select them all and apply , but I get an error that it can't find the repository under a 192.168.100.129:8080 address . Which is not a surprise . I am using mirror.optus.net as a repository and can ping it fine on the command line. So is there somewhere else that KPackageKit maps IP addreses ? I have tried another mirror mirror.aarnet.edu.au and got similar results. My local sub-net is not 192.168.100 and have tried setting fixed IP on the local sub-net and different DHCP addresses and still the same error.
How do i find the correct path to my cd-rom drive? I want to install office 2007 using wine and I have used the programmerfish tutorial and now have to do the following:type wine /path to cd/setup.exe but I cannot seem to find the correct path.
-I tried /dev/sr0/setup.exe but it returned an error. -I tried /dev/sr0/media/setup.exe. returned the same error. -I tried /dev/media/setup.exe. Also no good.
I thought using df would help me and there i found /dev/sr0/ would be my cd-rom drive. Dunno it this correct though.
I'm looking for the ISO that I download to put on a flashdrive. Maybe I'm stupid, but every link mentions 'CD/DVD' and it throws me off. i'm just trying to get the horrid Windows 7 off of my new Hp mini 110 and Ubuntu in its place. my old netbook had 10.04 on it. but i think i want to give 10.10 a try. so thats the one im looking for.
I am a complete noob in the Linux community, having JUST installed my first Linux distro on my PC (that being Slackware 13.37).That having been said, please be patient with my TOTAL confusion is this regard : How do I determine which version of a package I need to download (in this example, I will use Yakuake, a program I AM trying to find at the moment!). I have done searches on the internet of the type"Yakuake for Slackware", etc., and I have always found results that I believed were a link to the correct version. However, when I finally have the package downloaded (I have downloaded BOTH source packages as well as the build app.), they are always for a DIFFERENT VERSION!
This is most frustrating...; is there a "listing" of different packages that are compatible with a specific distro / version? I realize that, in many cases, I may require a newer version of a library, etc., but again, how do I determine this ahead of time, before I bother downloading the actual app. I wish to install? I can use another example - I attempted to install OpenOffice; I began by searching for OpenOffice for Slackware / KDE (as some sources indicated that Gnome was the required gui for this package...).I found a site with an install cd .iso that was supposed to be multi-platform KDE compatible, but NONE of the versions would install on Slackware 13.37... - you get my point?
My HP Laptop screen is 18.4 in diameter and the only two resolutions that work are the highest a 1920x1080 which is too small for me or 1360x768 which is perfect. That res is no longer available in the latest Nvidia driver.
I'm wondering if you can share some tips in regards to finding .conf files in programs when installing using package managers. I'm scratching my head on the fact that when you install a program through yum/apt-get, I don't know what and where the software is being installed at. In Windows, I know that when it installs an application, it goes into the Program Files directory, it's that simple.I know Linux has predefined directories for applications but sometimes it installs configuration files in /etc or some other locations in /usr which I have a tough time sifting through.
Is there a way to trace what .conf or any files for that matter which relates to what software that needs it? It's just hard for me to understand what file relates to what application at the moment. As much as I would like to learn more about Linux, this process for me takes up alot of time. I hope you can help me out on this one.
I am new to opensuse and have installed 11.2 KDE. It is simply perfect for my system. However after the initial setup the display resolution was set perfectly fine for my 18.5" LED monitor, default resolution was 1366x768, and everything looked good from desktop to fonts but the OSS drivers didn't support compositing so I decided to switch to nvidia drivers. I installed the driver as shown in openSUSE repositories page, for my 6600GT card. Now after rebooting everything is stretched,even the fonts look really ugly and fuzzy.
I am unable to find any mode in Nvidia XServer settings that would correct the current ugly stretched display. I am unable to set 1366x768 manually as well, doing so my PC won't boot to KDM but rather sticks to console. Now it's for sure that my monitor and display card supports 1366x768 resolution but it's just that nvidia drivers/Nvidia XServer settings won't let me set that resolution. How can I set the resolution or even better if I can enable compositing using OSS drivers then that would be great an dm willing to switch back.
I am new to Suse Linux. So please excuse me for this "funny" query. have read the threads: Configuring graphics cards in openSUSE 11.3
From here I went to this page: SDB:Configuring graphics cards - openSUSE Its mentioned on this page that: Upon installing openSUSE, the X system's automatic configuration may have failed to properly configure the graphics correctly. Typically this results in either a black screen upon reboot, or the wrong resolution being displayed on the monitor.
I have none of these problems. But after searching for inability of desktop effects to become activated, I found that nVIDIA graphic card drivers are must for these effects. After clicking "My computer" icon on desktop, I found Display Info as following:
Vendor: nVidia Corporation Model: G98 [GeForce 8400 GS] 2D driver: nouveau 3D driver: nouveau Gallium (7.8.2)
Can anyone tell me 'Is nouveau an alternative for nVIDIA'? Is this the reason for no wrong resolution or black screen upon boot. That means my computer graphics are working correctly. Then why does Desktop Effects are not getting enabled.
After searching for Kaffeine media player extra codecs to play media files, I incidentally found the following options: I opened Yast Control Center @ linux-o26a Software> Add on Products > installed Add-On Products > Community Repositories > clicking Next, this opened a window with "List of Online repositories" where there is an option of "NVIDIA Repository". If I install it, will it enable the "Desktop effects"
I'm a Linux newbie and for my new job I have to do a lot of instant messaging to clients. They are on a variety of services, aim, icq, msn, myspace, facebook, yahoo, Google Talk, jabber, and .mac/ichat Is there a good instant messaging client that covers most of these on one application? I am using Mandriva with KDE 4.2.
What I want to do is force my DVD burner to use full writing power on the entire surface of a DVD. This should be able to invisibly damage the contained data, and should work on CDs, DVDs and BRDs too (in theory). I don't want to write data over it, so it's not a matter of having a RW disc or a R one. The result I want to obtain is simply an unreadable disc that does not look damaged. Do you know if there's a program able to ignore a disc being already full and perform this task?
I just installed the latest SimplyMepis 8.02, 64 bit and I can only find a driver that compiles with GCC 4.1. This is, of course, not accepted in the installation process, so it shuts down.If someone reading this knows of one, please direct me to a 64 bit Nvidia driver for a GFX260 chipped (XFX) card that will run with GCC 4.3.
I can't find kmod so I'll go for the Nvidia installer from [URL]. I tried to run it Quote: su -c 'sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-XYZ.AB.pkg1.run' but it wants me to kill xserver. How can I do that? " gdm stop" will kill Xserver too? How will I start it again?
I installed Fedora 12 nowdays and tried to install the driver as Leigh posted in here: [URL]...Well i had some depadency trouble by installing kmod-nvidia and xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686. I enabled rpmfusion repo of course. I don't have anything isntalled just the base programs what fedora installs. I updated the kernel and installed kernel-devel aswell.
It is important to mention that initially Fedora did see the cards and I was able to set up a dual monitor system. It right was after I enable SLI and PhysX and re-booting into Linux that the problem showed up.
I have seen this issue before in another machine with an ASUS board, but not until today I associated with the SLI setup. My guess is that there has to be something that the driver is enabling in the cards that messes up the interface between the nvidia.ko module and the kernel, but I don't know what may fix it. I need this system for some numerical calculations.
I Have just formatted to Fedora 14 64bit and installed kmod-nvidia akmod-nvidia and am experiencing visual lag. The lag did not occur before I installed the drivers, neither did it occur on Fedora 13 with drivers installed.
I have a priitty high spec pc with the nvidia 260 gtx.
just remove xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-260.19.12-3.fc14.i686
I updated kernel and everything seemed ok, except HD-PVR is locking up and recording only two minutes of every show it records. So, I have gone back to my previous kernel, but it seems that X isn't starting:
(II) NVIDIA dlloader X Driver 195.36.31 Thu Jun 3 08:27:29 PDT 2010 (II) NVIDIA Unified Driver for all Supported NVIDIA GPUs
Fatal server error:no screens found I had done a yum install kmod-nvidia for the newer kernel. I am thinking I need to get the kmod for the current kernel again (184.108.40.206-115.fc12.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Apr 30 19:46:25 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux), but am not sure how that is done?
