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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia GeForce 6800 No TV Detected Via S-Video

May 21, 2010

I have thrown together a frankenstein of spare parts to stream video onto my TV. The GPU is a NX6800GS (geforce 6800). I have used the restricted driver tool to intsal the recommended driver. The VGA output works fine. My problem is that when using the nvidia tool to set up my TV through S-Video on the graphics card, the TV is not detected. This puts me at a dead end, as every how to guide on this forum assumes the nvidia control panel can detect the TV. Can i force video to play over the S-Video port? Do i need some magical unicorn drivers for the card? Any help is appreciated (even a simple "this setup will never work").

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 ...

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Installing Nvidia Drivers GeForce 210 In 11.4?

May 2, 2011

I am having a challenge to install drivers on this machine with the OS and graphics card stated in the subject. To date I have tried different ways and they are broken in the steps or in the results I get on my machine. The how-to written by ajohnw Installing an nvidia driver - easiest I have found to date. results in a file or directory not found when I try to execute



The article SDB:NVIDIA the hard way results in the following error (copied from the error log):


ERROR: The kernel header file '/usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h' does not exist.The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files in '/usr/src/linux' have not been configured.

Researching how to resolve that error and I can't find anything relevant to openSUSE 11, closest version being openSUSE 9.Lastly, I've tried this SDB:NVIDIA drivers and for some reason it does not generate the xorg.conf file. At least that's what I am concluding. I go through the steps, reboot the system and boot only to a command prompt. Navigating to /etc/X11/ there is no xorg.conf and I have to copy xorg.conf.install to xorg.conf to get back into the Desktop.

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?

Hardware :: Using Geforce 6150 Nforce 430 And NVidia-drivers 196.*?

Jul 20, 2010

I used the videocard Geforce 6150 nforce 430 (NV4C) without problems untill the upgrade to kernel > 2.6.32 and nvidia-drivers > 190.*. After the upgrade I can use only nv and vesa in the Gentoo x86_64 and in the Fedora 13 x86_64. When I try to install Geforce 8800 GT everything becomes good with free nvidia-drivers and with proprietary ones in both distributions. use this videocard with the kernel 2.6.33(34)* and nvidia-drivers 196.* ?

Ubuntu :: Restricted Nvidia Drivers Break Geforce 240 Graphics?

Jun 21, 2010

I attempted to install restricted drivers using jockey-gtk, was told to reboot and drivers would take effect. Rebooted and got no graphics, after some finagling I was able to delete xorg.conf and I now have horrific looking graphics. Defaulted to current version or 195 (which is also the only option I see in the jockey tool, however in synaptic/apt I see I can install other versions.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can No Longer Boot Into 11.4 After Updating NVIDIA Drivers

Apr 24, 2011

Basically everything was going fine, and i was enjoying the OpenSuse experience, then downloaded djl (Games Launcher) , installed some games and found that i had a very very very bad frame rate (about 1FPS), and my GPU is a NVIDIA GTS250 (1GB), and runs most games flawlessly under m$, so i went about installing the graphics drivers for my card. I followed the instructions and was under the assumption that i installed the correct ones, but now i cannot boot into any graphical interface. I think that it should be a graphics issue, as this was one of the few things done before rebooting. I have tried booting into the normal mode, and the failsafe, I have read many other "Not booting'' posts, and have tried their solutions without success, there include: Changing the boot parameters Logging in and manually trying to boot up the gui (init 3.... init 5... etc)

When the computer tries to load up OpenSuse in normal mode, it comes up with the normal loading screen, and then about 90% of the way it stops for about 30 seconds, and then switches over to a CLI, asking for a login, going through the log a couple of things fail, did have these noted down (but cannot find and will post along with other commands that i am asked to do) I want to try and avoid a reinstall as it took me a long time to get the WiFi card working.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing And Updating NVidia Display Drivers

Feb 28, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu last night parallel to windows vista ultimate (no problems). My biggest problem is that when I tried to install the nvidia display drivers, I somehow downloaded a server based driver (and am having amazingly difficult problems). I use a dual monitor set up (both are plug and play LCD displays) and i'm not too worried about aesthetics but rather, performance. I downloaded the correct driver but now I don't know how to install it. Is there a way to uninstall this server driver?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVIDIA GeForce 8200M Ubuntu Drivers/Support

Jul 16, 2010

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.

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 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?

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?
