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

Mar 25, 2010

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.

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?

Fedora :: Can't Install The Drivers For Nvidia Geforce Gt 240m

Jun 16, 2010

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 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 :: 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.

Fedora Hardware :: NVidia GeForce 310m - Use Card In Conjunction With 14?

Feb 17, 2011

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.

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 :: Setup Nvidia On Geforce 5700LE - Monitor Doesn't Support Screen Resolution

May 13, 2010

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.

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

Fedora :: Hardware - GeForce 4 MX440 Vs GeForce FX5200

Aug 28, 2010

Today I received as a gift a 5 years old Gateway 500X CPU which is apparently dead due to a faulty motherboard (I still have to troubleshoot it, of course).

Even in the cause I can fix it, odds are I'll prefer to make the aforementioned CPU a donor for my other machines, instead of resurrecting an old Pentium 4 (no HT) system.

Being this the case I checked the parts for possible transplants:

512MB DDR PC2700 memory module (useful right off the shelf for my main desktop system).
120GB Maxtor IDE hard drive (also useful, assuming it is in working order).
128MB AGP8X NVIDIA GeForce4 MX440 graphics card.

On this last part (the graphics card) I have my doubts as of where to use it. My main desktop system already has an NVIDIA card: FX5200, 128MB, which is newer. The thing is that I've been doing some homework comparing both the MX440 and the FX5200 and get mixed opinions: for one thing the FX5200 is the latest of the two with some advantages like support for a later DirectX (which for Linux is pointless) and other things, but the FX5200 is also reported to be technically inferior to the MX440.

In your opinion/experience which card is a better performer? Should I expect a performance gain if I were to replace the FX5200 with the MX440?

Red Hat :: 5.4 Not Compatible With NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600

Aug 14, 2010

I am trying for Redhat certification on RHEL 5.4. When i tried to install it on my Acer laptop with NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600, I was only able to install it in CUI mode and no GUI. From NVIDIA website I tried both the newest and oldest version they have for Linux, which is with .run extension. I tried installing it using sh <drivername.run> and it is starting the wizard, but exiting abruptly, with a kernel error.

How to work around on this issue? Any generic driver that would work for this display adaptor? whether version 5.5 would work with this card?

Hardware :: NVIDIA Geforce 7050 Compatible ?

Apr 30, 2010

I purchased a new computer and I am trying to boot up gparted to partition the HD for installing my Linux Distros, but it gives the famous error Quote:

input signal out of range. So I tried booting up some other live cd's, some give the same error as above and some tell me that the resolution or refresh rate in wrong. Of course using a live cd I have no control over that. I also tried three different monitors that have run Linux just fine on other computers.

My only thought that I could come up with is the NVIDIA Geforce 7050 graphics is not compatible with Linux. Can anyone confirm this ? Or is there something else I can try ?
