Fedora :: Kernel Update Disabled Nvidia Driver On F12?
Dec 26, 2009
i ran yum update which updated kernel to 22.214.171.124.174.fc12.i686.PAE. Now after logging in i get a blank white screen. With previous kernel updates i have had no such problem. Anyway, the boot messages are following:
checking for module nvidia.ko [FAILED]
nvidia.ko for kernel 126.96.36.199-174.fc12.i686.PAE was not found [WARNING]
The nvidia driver will not be enabled until one is found [WARNING]
Driver already disabled
I'm running Fedora 13 x64 and updated the kernel to the latest version (188.8.131.52-56 to 184.108.40.206-61). I use the proprietary nvidia drivers (currently 260.19.12) so I had to compile the kernel module against the new kernel sources and reinstall the driver. The process was apparently successful, but when I try to start X nothing happens, it's as if the computer had been suspended, my monitor acts like it isn't receiving any input. I have full runlevel 3 access, and the system seems pretty much fine up to that point. Nvidia's own sanity tests which are built into the installer reported no problems with my driver.
I seem unable to get an nvidia driver working properly after upgrading to the latest kernel with Fedora 11.Here is my laptop and its specs: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...reg_R1002_USEN[URL]I've tried both the kmod and akmod unsuccessfully. Everytime it gives me a black screen on boot, I can fix the problem by popping in the LiveCD, and changing the xorg.conf file back to the backup.Here are the errors/warnings from my boot.log file:
Code: WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/. Checking for module nvidia.ko: [60G[[0;31mFAILED[0;39m]
I compiled the 220.127.116.11 kernel and <insert drumroll> it boots!(my first kernel roll, I'm kind of shocked actually) That's the good news. The bad news is that my NVIDIA drivers are gone in the wind. That's not entirely true as I can still boot into the old kernel and startx. Is there a way to download the driver using the command line for reinstall?
my problem is on installing nvidia driver on fc12 32bit but, first of all, as i understood the pae kernel requires more than 4gb of ram,i have a 2.2 ghz cpu with 2 gb ram,but when i run command:uname -r it answers: 18.104.22.168-127.PAE [i have fc12 32 bit] when we try to download linux we have a 32bit edition or 64bit edition,do we have an edition which is only for pae? or when we install for example the 32bit edition on a computer with more than 4gb of ram then the kernel automatically will change to be a pae kernel??
Having just updated various files including the kernel using Package Manager I no longer seem to have the correct version of the Nvidia graphics driver. On previous updates this has been done automatically by the "kmod Nvidia" Metapackage. My last kernel was 22.214.171.124-163 fc12.i686.PAE and the Nvidia driver for that did get downloaded correctly. Looking on Yumex I cannot see a driver for this latest kernel listed.
I just responded to a (packagekit?) prompt to update packages, which included new kernel 126.96.36.199-88.fc14.x86_64. I use nVidia on my notebook and usually the new driver is installed automatically. This time, the computer would not boot to the stage that the nVidia logo appears, indicating the driver is not present. I edited grub.conf to take me back a version and I am now running under the previous kernel 188.8.131.52-83.fc14.x86_64. I tried a yum search for kmod-nvidia-184.108.40.206-88.fc14.x86_64 and nothing was found. I have enabled these repos:
I updated my fedora 12 GNOME installation. Now Compiz fusion is not working. It says Accelerated 3D support not found. Though Nvidia drivers are already installed. Now I can't even ALT+TAB between open applications.
I tried "metacity -- replace" but then windows wore a weird look with only a minimize button. No sign of maximise & close buttons.
I had a working ubuntu 10.10 system two days ago with kernel 2.6.35-24. I have a gtx 460 card so I have the driver from Jockey/Additional Drivers installed.
Two days ago update manager prompted me to install 2.6.35-25. I've never had problems updating kernels so I did. I Rebooted my machine and gdm/gnome no longer starts. I always get stuck on the tty1 screen. I did some troubleshooting and figured out that my current NVidia drivers seems to be messing it up. So I booted into my older kernel (2.6.35-24) and removed my NVidia driver.
I used these steps to switch from nvidia to nouveau: NvidiaDriverSwitching
I can now boot into my latest kernel (2.6.35-25) but now I'm having problems trying to reinstall the nvidia drivers.
jockey sometimes doesn't list any available drivers. and when it does, it gives me an "System InstallArchive() error" when trying to install.
I tried installing nvidia-current via apt-get and I get these errors:
Code: Setting up nvidia-current (260.19.06-0ubuntu1) ... Removing old nvidia-current-260.19.06 DKMS files... dkms.conf: Error! No 'DEST_MODULE_LOCATION' directive specified. dkms.conf: Error! No 'PACKAGE_NAME' directive specified. dkms.conf: Error! No 'PACKAGE_VERSION' directive specified.
I used to have FC11 installed with the nvidia supplied binary driver. Worked fine, very stable. Trying FC12 and FC13 live CDs caused a hang, so I stuck with FC11. FC14 live CD did boot so I backed up my own files and did a clean FC14 install. Upgraded to get kernel 220.127.116.11-48, installed the nvidia driver from RPMFusion (260.19.21) and had a working system! Now, after a cold boot, the kernel always hangs during boot. Tried a number of kernel boot option (apci=off, noapic and a few others too). The hang is not always at the same place. The earliest it has hung is after:Disabling lock debugging due to kernel taint
Sometimes its a few lines later at:NVRM: loading NVIDIA UNIX x86_64 Kernel Module 260.19.12 ...(which would seem to imply that the hang can even occur a step or two before the actual driver is loaded!)
Sometimes it keeps going for a few more seconds and randomly hangs during some other driver load.
Without a specific nvidia driver the system always boots ok, so I'm pretty sure its the nvidia driver but I just can't seem to get a handle on this in a reproducible way. Sometimes, when I have make some other change, it will boot and work ok, but a reboot locks it up again (for example, in case it was SELinux, I disabled it and on the next reboot it booted and worked ok. Then, next boot, it wasn't working again). When I make changes, I reboot using the previous kernel, make the changes and reboot, with an occasional success. Once I start rebooting using the latest kernel, it always hangs.
I'd love to get a solution to this, but even some advice on debugging this would be appreciated!

Lately I tried to update my nvidia drivers from RPFMFusion repos. There was a new version 275 available, so I installed it. After a reboot I would repeatedly see the Nviia Logo followed by black followed by a glimpse at the CLI with some error message. This process continues over and over again and it is so fast that the only thing I could make out from the error message is the following:
at-spi-bus-laun[some-number] segfault at 980 ... in libx11.so.6.3.0 ...
I tried completely removing the driver then updating my system (there were no updates) then booting with nouveau to see that that actually works. Then I tried reinstalling the nvidia driver following leigh's guide [URL]. Same error.
This is where I'm stuck at the moment. Booting to runlevel 3 I had a look into the messages and Xorg.0.log, but I didn't see anything. Maybe I can get the log files uploaded. I will boot from live media and provide them later on.

Using F15 x64 kernel 18.104.22.168-32 (from the top of my head, please don't shoot me) added repos: RPMFusion adobe (flash) playonlinux
There is one addition I can make. Before, when I was using the 270 driver, I tried playing some games via wine and that also segfaulted on me (most of the time - 1 worked), so I think there is a general issue with the nvidia drivers on my system. But back then It was only wine, not X.
I updated FC14 which included the kernel and also the nvidia drivers kmod. Then after a reboot the video driver wouldn't load. From another terminal I tried different things to fix it and didn't managed. I eventually erased all nvidia drivers so that I can get the default one. Now every time it boots I get a really low light. I can login, but can't see. It seems that the whole screens has about 5% light and I can't see to do anything. I managed now to boot into FC live CD for FC15 and I have light. For FC14 live CD it's the same no light problem.
I tried all older kernels to boot but I have the same problem. I am using PAE kernel and that's why I installed the kmod drivers. But now, since they are not anymore and I can't see anything, even though I am logged in I don't know what to do next. Is there something I can do from FC15 live cd? How can I go using the terminal to my harddisk and how to add the driver or any low graphic driver so that I can have light? After I did yum erase *nvidia* the light went almost off.
I have been running F11 for some time now. I install updates regularly and to this time have had no issues. Now it comes up with error.
Code: [root@red 2305 ~] $ yum update Loaded plugins: protectbase, refresh-packagekit 0 packages excluded due to repository protections Setting up Update Process Resolving Dependencies --> Running transaction check ..... --> xorg-x11-drv-nvidia conflicts with xorg-x11-drv-catalyst Error: xorg-x11-drv-nvidia conflicts with xorg-x11-drv-catalyst Error: xorg-x11-drv-catalyst conflicts with xorg-x11-drv-nvidia You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: package-cleanup --problems package-cleanup --dupes rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest [root@red 2306 ~]
I do not believe that I even have the 'xorg-x11-drv-catalyst' mentioned here installed: Code: [root@red 2315 ~] $ yum list all | grep installed | grep catalyst [root@red 2316 ~] This returns nothing so why the error?
I have just updated my kernel to version 22.214.171.124-35 in Fedora 15, it now refuses to boot that kernel. I just get a lot of text on the screen and nothing happens. I can ctrl-alt-fn to get to a prompt, but I do not know how to fix the nvidia problem.
When I edit Xorg.conf and replace 'nvidia' with 'nv' the new kernel boots but only to fallback mode, trying to then re-install the nvidia drivers shows them to be already installed and I can get no further.
Fedora (126.96.36.199-47.fc13.x86_64) I installed that update, during the installation process it said that it had to remove three packages, one of them was kmod nvidia for the old kernel (Fedora (188.8.131.52-149.fc13.x86_64))After the update finished installing the new kernel, I restarted the system and Nvidia did not load. (I assume because Update manager removed the old nvidia? But I also assumed that a new version would be installed automatically?)I received the following Boot messages:
Entering non-interactive startup Starting monitoring for VG vg_user1: 3 logical volume(s) in volume group "vg_user1" monitored
I'm confused, if Update Manager removed kmod nvidia, then why does yum say it is installed? And why doesn't the new kernel update work with that version? Or should I install a driver version for that particular kernel? I've read while searching that I need to install a kmod-nvidia for that particual kernel version and that I should login to my previous kernel until that happens, is that the problem I'm having?
Why don't rpmfusion and fedoraproject release the kmod-nvidia and kernel updates at the same time to avoid problems such as this? Does anyone know how long does it usually take for rpmfusion to release the new kmod-nvidia driver for the latest kernel?
Whenever I update my kernel, I have to re-install the NVIDIA drivers, and this has always worked for me so far. I have the latest version of the Developer Drivers for Linux (270.41.19). After updating to the 2.6.40-4.fc15.x86_64 kernel, the nvidia installer fails with the error (/var/log/nvidia-installer.log):
If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel installed on your system. If you specified a separate output directory using either the "KBUILD_OUTPUT" or the "O" KBUILD parameter, make sure to specify this directory with the SYSOUT environment variable or with the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.
Depending on where and how the kernel sources (or the kernel headers) were installed, you may need to specify their location with the SYSSRC environment variable or the equivalent nvidia-installer command line option.
The kernel sources are installed. Installation works properly in 184.108.40.206-32.fc15.x86_64
Everything worked fine on kernel 2.6.33-6.But since the update to kernel 2.6.33-8, not always but nearly everytime I resume from suspend, my wireless network is disabled.When I right click the tray Icon the "Enable Networking" box is unticked and greyed out.Only a reboot brings networking back
I applied the latest updates today and when I rebooted, My wireless broadcom driver is not working and the ifconfig does not list it either anymore, was working 8 min ago but is now dead. If I turn off the wireless with a switch and back on, I get a blue light but it remains disabled and greyed out on the network icon. Ubuntu 10.04, latest updates applied daily. I removed the driver and reinstalled it, it did not help at all. Also, my Truecryt gdecrypt stopped working.
Update: it seems the wireless switch on the front of the laptop is now working backwards, in checking the daemon log I found Turning off the wifi so the light goes out:
Oct 2 20:09:18 chuck-laptop NetworkManager: <info> WiFi now enabled by radio killswitch Oct 2 20:09:18 chuck-laptop NetworkManager: <info> (eth1): bringing up device. Oct 2 20:09:18 chuck-laptop NetworkManager: <info> (eth1): supplicant interface state: starting -> ready
Update, I found that if I boot the laptop up with the networking switch off, then, after I'm booted up, turn it on, it works. However if I reboot the laptop with the network switch in the on position I get the above issue with the switch being inverted and not working properly.
I was trying to update the new nvidia drivers since they dont seem to work in the newer kernel, or to try to fix it but now when i run yum update I get a screen like this:
Downloading Packages: Running rpm_check_debug ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve: kernel-uname-r = 220.127.116.11-18.fc15.i686.PAE is needed by (installed) kmod-nvidia-18.104.22.168-18.fc15.i686.PAE-1:270.41.06-1.fc15.i686
I installed the latest kernel liquorix (2.6.35) but when i want to install the Nvidia driver downloaded on the Nvidia website (256.53), i have an error message because Nvidia doesn't found the kernel source tree.
I install linux-image-2.6.35-6.dmz.2-liquorix-686_2.6.35-16_i386.deb, linux-headers-2.6.35-6.dmz.2-liquorix-686_2.6.35-16_i386.deb and build-essential. I don't understand why the installation doesn't works.
9.04 this morning updated my kernel to I believe it is 22.214.171.124 and upon the reboot I had no desktop. It booted wanting to go into low graphics.
So I drop to shell and stop the gdm and try to run the latest nvidia run file I have and it hangs saying I have a x server running.
Otherwise I am needing assistance with getting my desktop back! I can boot into an older kernel and if need be I would like to roll back that latest update this morning, but once again I am forgetting the command line for that.
I install fedora on my usb-hdd. Sometimes i boot it from real machine, sometimes i boot from virtual machine (kvm). When I boot from real machine, hdd driver is usb-storage, when i boot from virtual machine hdd drivers are ata_generic and pata_acpi.
Everytime i update kernel, mkinitrd only create initrd image contains only hdd driver current running, and I must recreate initrd manual with all preload hdd driver. How to config fedora to everytime update kernel, mkinitrd can make initrd image with all hdd driver I need?
This is a followup/secondary question from another post earlier this morning.[URL].. Info: Lucid 10.04, 4GB ram, Nvidia video, home built pc. I'm fairly certain that when I enable the pae kernel this time, I'll get usage of the full 4GB of memory that I have installed.
The problem is, that I did enable the pae kernel earlier this week to test something out, but ran into a problem. It came up in "low graphics mode" (800x600). As you can image, I wasn't real thrilled about that.
I went to System->Administration->Hardware Drivers to get the video driver straightened out. I figured it just needed one compiled for the pae kernel... Well, it didn't find one. Is there one? Is there a procedure to get one installed/compiled, if there isn't one?
I don't know if I want to mess with trying to get the Nvidia drivers working for pae, when I only stand to gain another ~700MB of memory. Currently showing 3.2GB. I'm not sure if its worth my trouble..
I am using Ubuntu 9.10 with a GeForce 7300SE/7200GS video card. The current driver installed is 185.18.36 - installed via Ubuntu when the OS was initially installed. It appears that Ubuntu is not automatically updating, or at least not informing me, when a new release is available. The latest version Nvidia driver is 190.53 released on Dec 16, 2009. I have manually downloaded the driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53-pkg1.run). Since I'm still "wet behind the ears" to Linux-Ubuntu, I really do know that much, if anything, about using the "Terminal" and all those "command line" entries. So first, can I set-up Ubuntu to check for Nvidia driver updates? Next, how do I manually install this new driver?
