My friend just recently gave me an Nvidea Geforce 4 64mb, and it is supposed to be better than my ATI x700 Pro. I was wondering if there was openGL support for this card, and how do i replace it with my ATI card?
I own an ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC that has an Intel HD IGP, nVIDIA GeForce GT 325M GPU, and nVIDIA Optimus technology. I am running OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with GNOME. I used to be a former Ubuntu user. I used Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat 64 bit. In Ubuntu, it was not recommended that I install the proprietary nVIDIA binary drivers because it would cause me to log into a TTY console upon reboot.
nVIDIA states that they have no plans to support Optimus technology in Linux at any time. Would it be recommended that I install the proprietary nVIDIA binary drivers in OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with GNOME? Will I get the same problem as in Ubuntu? How do I do this?
First off, let me say: I'm a long time Linux hobbyist and recently installed Fedora 12. I've been looking (some say "lurking") around these forums for a bit after I loaded it up and let me say: Leigh, You're an amazing young man! Keep up the great work! I've a question: I've just put together a hobby computer: Pentuim 4, with 1 Gig of RAM and a Nvidia Geforce5700LE. When I install Fedora from a fresh install, everything works great: nice screen resolution, good graphics, etc. but no 3d or acceleration, so I'm very limited on my programs.
So I decided I need to upgrade my Nvidia driver. I followed Leigh's Nvidia setup guide after installing Fedora 12 (all four steps!) everything seemed to go fine, but when I reboot, I quickly see the Nvidia splash screen, but the screen then goes blank. Well, not really blank, I can see what appears to be a kind of cross-hatch pattern, plus I can see what should be my mouse cursor on screen (it also is a square shaped pattern). I suspect it may be at a screen resolution that my monitor doesn't support. Once there, the computer pretty much doesn't do anything else. Usually I can break into the x driver loading and go to the command prompt, but this latest time I can't even do that.
The second card (Nvidia GT218) I have the DVI connection going to monitor three Monitor one and two for the ATI work perfect but I cannot get monitor three which is connected to the nvidia gt218 to work properly. I tried editing my own xorg.conf file but that did not work, I have a windows 7 install on this box that works properly. I cant seem to make this work with the third monitor and the nvidia video card.
I am thinking of buying a Lenovo IdeaPad Z360, it has a GeForce G 310M.
I can't find much info on Linux support but an Ubuntu thread seems to suggest it isn't good. Can someone confirm that this card works with the latest nVidia drivers on Linux (Arch in particular)? It'd be even better if you had the Ideapad Z360 and could report on any other hardware problems I might have?
NVidia seems to say they have support (listed without the G however), but I've heard conflicting reports and so would like to check.
EDIT: I also found these:
Does the Z360 have optimus and the Z560 not so? I can't detect that either of them have it but occasionaly, someone says that they do. Can anyone confirm this? I thought the only real difference was the screen size.
I recently bought a sony vaio laptop, with nVidia GeForce 310M device.
I am new, and not very good with ubuntu. I downloaded a driver version 185, and installed, after installing which, I could not get any display at all. After trying to repair, in vain, I had to reinnstall the whole system.
I really need the correct drivers. I can see a version 190.42 of nvidia drivers, but that doesnt list my device model number, and so im not sure, whether this should work. Someone, also please tell me how do I repair, if I mess while trying this driver out?
I installed Nvidia xorg drivers (not knowing it didn't support my card) and messed up my video setup. When I rebooted it wanted me to restore to default, so I did. Now that I have, I can do stuff, but I am trying to run some games in W.I.N.E. and it just won't run. I can't activate desktop-effects either. And to be honest, I can't find any information on the NVIDIA GeForce 8200M, I can only find info and support for 8200 and the 8200M G. otherwise I'll just have to reinstall.... And I just installed 10.04 yesterday.
I notice in Leigh's nvidia guide for F13 it lists: For GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9, 200 & 300 series cards but not For GeForce FX cards (mine is a 5200) as it did for F12. Does this mean the 5 series cards are not supported in F13?
Forgive me if this was already posted but I couldn't find it. I am attempting to install F10 on my Acer Aspier 8730-6031, but I have video drive compatibility issues with my 9300m. Does anyone know of any drivers for this card or any fixes?
I want to install the proper drivers for my system .the drivers are here: [URL] and come in a .run format (archive format I guess?) Anyway. If someone has done this with these drivers or other nvidia drivers and has some advice. Please, I'd really rather NOT end up screwing up my system or end up accomplishing nothing at all because I did it wrong.
I just installed F13, congrats to the community for the awesome work - everything worked straight out of the box .
Unfortunately, I need to install the proprietary NVIDIA driver for my job (CUDA stuff). I first installed F13 + kmod-nvidia from Fusion on a machine with a GeForce 7200GS, and everything works ok (after turning nouveau off).
Then, I proceeded to update another machine featuring a GeForce GTX280 (again, nouveau blacklisted). The install was apparently successful, but X turned out to be extremely unstable and always crashes a few seconds into the session, either by leaving a blinking screen or by causing the machine to reboot. Thinking that some file might have ended up corrupted, I reinstalled F13 and tried nvidia-graphics from ATrpms. The result was the same: computer hanging a few seconds into the X session. Finally, I installed from the NVIDIA sh package, and again same outcome .
The card is most likely ok because I ran it with F10 till yesterday flawlessly, so I can only guess that it is the new version of the driver coming broken from NVIDIA. I tried installing version 185.18.36 but it cannot figure out the version of my kernel headers, and the legacy versions available from the repos do not support the GTX 280, so I cannot be positive about version 195.36.24 being bugged.
Both machines are x86_64 (a Phenom II and a Core i7). Especially, does anyone know how I could get version 185.18.36 to run on F13?
I was following this guide to install my nvidia drivers...[URL] but when I got to the step about checking to see if my card is supported I'm to check here...[URL] I don't see my card anywhere in this list So I kept reading and found this posting ... [URL] and it says that it is support under the geforce 200 ... The last time that I installed this driver my X session quit working ... I was able to ssh back into the laptop and undo the driver install so now i'm a little gun shy about trying it again...
Fedora Core 8 did not recognize my Geforce 7150M display adapter (in a HP DV6000 laptop), neither did Fedora Core 10 I tried yesterday although this laptop is now already over one year old (I have used Vista because it works out of the box but it sucks as you might have guessed). That could be something I'd like to complain about but I choose not to, I simply want to know how to install Fedora 10 from a live CD (that is all I have now, no DVDs and not too much cash to buy some..) Live CD boots and I can access command line. If I have understood correctly, Nvidia proprietary driver supports my display adapter but it is not included in live cd so I could use X after installation. Problem is that I don't know how to successfully run the installer from text mode. I tried to execute 'anaconda' but it cannot find packages to install when it comes to that. There seem to be no instructions how to install from a live CD that I could find using Google. For sure someone knows what command to execute to begin installation?
I am a recruit for Linux and install FC12 on my PC. The motherboard is ASUS M3N78-CM. The nvidia GeForce 8200 chipset on the motherboard is directlt used for vedio. The driver : NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.42-pkg2.run is downloaded from Nvidia website, but it can't drive the chipset successfully. So i can not start X-window. If anyone has a solution to this problem?
I've enjoyed accelerated 3d graphics for years with this laptop, but since moving from CentOS 5.3 to FC12 I have had no 3d or opengl working at all.My install seems good. I'm running right now with the 'nvidia' driver in 1920x1200 res with no real problems except the lack of 3d. I have just finished trawling the forums again, coming back to: F12,F11 & F10 Nvidia driver guides [URL] I uninstalled all my nvidia packages, re-installed only "kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686" and dependencies, ensured 'nvidia' was my selected driver in xorg.conf (using nvidia-config-display disable, then enable), and rebooted, and still no joy. No errors in Xorg.0.log. My 'glx' extension is loaded. 'nouveau' is rdblacklisted. SELinux is disabled. I have 3Gb RAM and so have chosen not to use the PAE kernel or modules.

Error log*********************************************** ******************** nvidia-installer log file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' creation time: Sat Jan 15 12:52:09 2011
I typed "su -l" and telinit 3. But "ERROR: You appear to be running an X server" is written. What I can install this driver as well? or how I can booting up the Fedora 14 in text mode?
Is there anything special I need to do to use this card in conjunction with Fedora 14? It's been acting a little strange lately. Also I think the card may have some type of 3D support although I'm not entirely sure on that.
In Fedora 13 with the kernel version of 126.96.36.199-56.fc13.x86_64, the NVidia driver of the version 256.53 was installed from rpmfusion repository. Everything works fine except for one problem: the brightness cannot be controlled from the power management programs in either KDE or Gnome. In Gnome, the scroll bar of brightness disappears, and, in KDE, the scroll bar cannot be dragged.
Since the computer with Fedora 13 and NVidia driver installed is Dell Studio One 19 (All-in-One computer) which has no hardware buttons to control screen display options at all, there is no other way to adjust the brightness of computer screen. The BIOS of the computer doesn't include an option to adjust screen brightness either. Since screen brightness is set at the maximum level when the computer is turned on, it is not possible to continue using the computer for a continuous period of time due to eyesight protection. Strangely enough, both the Nouveau driver included in xorg-x11-drv-nouveau 0.0.16-8.20100423git13c1043 from Xorg 7.4 and the driver included in the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental 7.8.1 support brightness adjustment without any glitches.
I am just getting into fedora and have installed it on an EMachine ET 1810. According to my SMOLT info, I have the above Video card. (my smolt info is in my signature). I had installed a couple of games that require 3d drivers in order for the game to play! but I can't find any.
i have a lenovo g550 with nvidia geforce g 105m i tried to install its driver on fedora 11 and 12 and i have followed the instructions of setup as in fedora sites and forums, the problem is after installation i have 6 equal screens 640*320 and i don't know how to edit xorg.conf

I've seen a lot of posts related to problems with GNOME 3 shell and nvidia drivers but I have yet to find anything that seems to fix my problem. At this point, the laptop, a Dell D850, boots just fine all the way to the gdm login screen. When I log in, the background and menus initialize and the mouse can be moved around, but nothing works---I can't click on anything, Alt-F1 does nothing, and I have to switch to a VT and shut-down X. I've uninstalled all things nvidia and now I have a working laptop, so long as I use Classic with Compiz.
I upgraded two other hosts, but both had ATI graphics cards; they worked without a hitch. I'm regretting having decided to upgrade this laptop
There I had legacy driver from nVidia but resolution was degraded to 640x320 and in their version 8.10 I cannot edit xorg.config (there was not anythig about resolution) I hoped in fedora i`ll fix this.
I have a Compaq Presario 8000 with an Nvidia Geforce FX 5950 Ultra on which a year ago I upgraded from Fedora 6 to Fedora 9, and this broke the Nvidia driver, since Fedora 9 was shipped with an X server incompatible with Nvidia. I went back to the 2d driver to get X working, and it sat that way for the past year. But recently I wanted to do some 3D work and decided to install Fedora 12, which hopefully has an X server that works with Nvidia.
I decided to do a cold install, re-partitioning my 80G hard drive at the same time. I backed up my data, ran the install CDs with no errors, and booted the system, with an immediate kernel panic: Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
Doing a Google search, I found over 8,000 hits for that message combined with the keyword Fedora. Several of the hits were on Bugzilla: [URL] I then booted the install disk, chose rescue mode and did - chroot /mnt/sysimage
