Fedora Installation :: NVIDIA GeForce 9300m GS Compatability?

Feb 19, 2009

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?

Ubuntu Installation :: Nvidia 9300M GS - Purple Screen (loading Screen) With 4 Dots

Oct 25, 2010

I have been using ubuntu wel a long time now and I know my way around in linux but I recently updated my laptop from ubuntu 10.04 to ubuntu 10.10 all went fine until I had to restart my laptop. I got a purple screen (loading screen) with 4 dots and a oldskool like font which said: Ubuntu 10.10 Right after that the screen goes purple and its like the system halts I hear no login sound etc just a purple screen. So I did a clean install from the 10.10 live cd which booted perfectly fine and the system was also useable like before. But when I installed the system and rebooted it again no problems.

But when I tried to install the proprietary nvidia driver (the recommended one) I got the same problem again the purple screen. After searching a while on the internet I only found posts which had the problem with ATI cards but my laptop is fitted with a Nvidia Geforce 9300 M card. So I tried several things like removing the xorg.conf (read it somewhere) which ofcourse did not work, and booting in graphics fail safe mode which worked. So the point is in 10.04 and 9.10 I CAN use my video card drivers but not in 10.10 is there a solution to this problem? I am talking about the 32 bit version of ubuntu and here's my system hardware profile:

Intel core 2 duo t7350 @ 2,0 ghz / 3mb l2 cache
2 GB DDR3 ram
160 gb hdd
Nvidia 9300m gs
Chipset: I dont know sorry
Model: Samsung R710

Fedora Installation :: Install From Live CD With Nvidia Geforce 7150M?

Mar 17, 2009

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?

Fedora Installation :: 12 And Nvidia GeForce 5950 - Kernel Panic - Not Syncing: VFS: Unable To Mount Root Fs On Unknown-block(0,0)

Dec 5, 2009

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

Ubuntu Installation :: NVidia GeForce 310M Support

Jan 28, 2010

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?

Ubuntu Installation :: What Are Best Drivers For Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS

Oct 20, 2010

What are the best drivers for Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS. I'm not 100% sure, but I heard the newest drivers have buggs and aren't 100% compatible with 10.10. I was wondering what the best version of Nvidia drivers would be to install on 10.10? apt-get install?

Ubuntu Installation :: Nvidia Geforce 5200 Tvout Fails

Nov 27, 2010

My current system (Dell Optiplex 260, 2.8 GHz CPU, 1.5 Gig RAM, Nvidia Geforce 5200 AGP, HannsG HX190 through DFP) was running Kubuntu 9 perfectly, but was lost due to a disk crash and a flawed backup. Rather than trying to fix a badly damaged system, I decided to go straight to 10. Installation went smoothly until I tried to activate tvout, which again worked perfectly under K9. Now, xserver goes into a start crash/loop and the system must be shut down using the power switch. While looping, the TV does seem to briefly go into graphics mode, but the monitor stays dark. The only way to get the system running again is to comment out the 'Screen 1' clause of the 'Section Serverlayout' in the xorg.conf. I even tried restoring the xorg.conf that ran fine under K9, same problem.

Here's the xorg.conf that the Nvidia Server Setting app generates:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
Screen 1 "Screen1" RightOf "Screen0"

Fedora Hardware :: NVIDIA 195.36.24 Does Not Work With GeForce GTX280 On F13

May 28, 2010

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?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Install 10.4.2 LTS On PC With NVidia GeForce 6150 Card

Mar 23, 2011

This is to request the communities assistance with the following: As the title suggests, I am attempting to install 10.04.2 LTS on a PC equipped with an ASUS M2NPV-VM mobo and integral NVidia GeForce 6150 chipset/card and AMD dual processors.

Result: While the CD with the installation software loads, the splash screen comes up distorted and is displayed as several black and white horizontal bars. I have tried this with low end monitors with a VGA input with the same results. It appears to me as if though the video driver on the installation CD is not suitable for the mobo's chipset, but I may be wrong.

Fedora :: Nvidia (GeForce Go 7900 GTX) Driver Install Ok But No GLX Visual

Feb 11, 2010

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.

Fedora Hardware :: Nvidia GeForce 310/GT218 Fan Control Support?

Dec 18, 2010

I am running a FC14 x64 on a desktop which has a nvidia GeForce310 aka GT218 card which is being supported by the in kernel nouveau driver.

The kernel/syslog reports:


When Fedora 14 boots, I can hear the nvidia GPU fan spin up to its max rate.

With Windows on this same machine, the same fan starts at the same rate but drops to a lower (and less noisy rate) so we know there is graphics card supports fan control.

Does anyone know if its possible to set the nvidia's fan speed via the nouveau (or other) driver/util?

I have looked at nvclock (0.8b4 being the most recent I could find) but running this reports that the card isn't supported, although it reportedly supports the NV5x backend.

Hardware :: Unable To Use NVidia Driver For GeForce 9200 In Fedora 13

Sep 29, 2010

In Fedora 13 with the kernel version of, 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.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: NVIDIA GeForce GT 325M And NVIDIA Optimus Support?

Apr 3, 2011

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?

Fedora Hardware :: 15 Nvidia GeForce Go 7400 Gnome 3 Shell Hang On Login

Jul 12, 2011

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
