OpenSUSE Hardware :: Failed To Initialize The Second NVIDIA GPU In 11.4
May 5, 2011
I have 2 NVIDIA card intalled - GT 240 and Geforce 9500.After updating by repo kernel to ver 126.96.36.199-0.5.1 and Nvidia driver by to ver 270.41.06 X server cant start
Part of X server log

So for now only dismounting one of cards gives working X server.
I updated kernel and everything seemed ok, except HD-PVR is locking up and recording only two minutes of every show it records. So, I have gone back to my previous kernel, but it seems that X isn't starting:
(II) NVIDIA dlloader X Driver 195.36.31 Thu Jun 3 08:27:29 PDT 2010 (II) NVIDIA Unified Driver for all Supported NVIDIA GPUs
Fatal server error:no screens found I had done a yum install kmod-nvidia for the newer kernel. I am thinking I need to get the kmod for the current kernel again (188.8.131.52-115.fc12.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Apr 30 19:46:25 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux), but am not sure how that is done?
when i start uubuntu it automatically goes to tty with out letting me login. then when i press startx it says:
NVIDIA: failed to initialize the nvidia graphics device pci:0:13:0 nvidia: please check your systems kernal log for additional erroe nvidia: messages and refer to chapter 8 nvidia: failed to initialize the nvidia graphics device! nvidia: screen found, but none have a usable configuration fatal screen error: no screen found
right before this i had activated a nvidia graphics device
Every time I start up my Ubuntu 10.04 install, instead of the graphical login screen, I get an error dialog stating the following:
Code: Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode. The following error was encountered. You may need to update your configuration to solve this. Also in the dialog are several lines of text:
Code: (EE) <date and time> Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the system's kernel log for additional error messages and consult the NVIDIA README for details. ***Aborting*** Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.I'm not sure what it means by "kernel log," or where any error logs might be saved. Any tips? Perhaps if I can find such error logs, posting them will help diagnose the problem.
If it matters, I have 2 monitors, an NEC AccuSync 120 CRT and a Samsung BX2440X LCD. I use them in Xinerama mode with the Nvidia drivers under my Ubuntu 9.10 install and have no problems there. To get normal graphics under 10.04, I have to start up in low-graphics mode, kill X server, reinstall the Nvidia proprietary drivers, and restart the X server. Then I have to do it all over again after the next restart, every time I want to run 10.04.It's very annoying.Also possibly relevant: I use the latest 32-bit Nvidia drivers for 10.04, version 256.53.I've found a few other threads where people had problems similar to this, but nothing exactly like my situation nor any real resolution so far. I hope it can be fixed, because there are other things about 10.04 that I really like.
I'm running ubuntu 9.10 64 bit (2.6.31-20-generic) on a Z600 HP. My graphics card is Nvidia quadro NVS450. I am using the Ubuntu Nvidia driver 185.18.36. I am experiencing random, daily system freezes where the system has to be manually rebooted. After installing the crash dump packages I am now getting a crash dump file and it's clear the problem relates to my graphics card.
Is this a red herring or the cause of my problems: (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libglx.so (EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, (EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check in your X
The NVIDIA X Server Settings shows a message "Failed to query the GLX server vendor".
Here is my xorg.conf file: $ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf # nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings # nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (buildd@crested) Sun Feb 1 20:25:37 UTC 2009 Section "ServerLayout"
I have had this error for way too long. This post will be done in parts. I've had it for months now and I'd like to solve it. Every suggestion on linux forums, ubuntu forums, or some XYZ-linux blog seems to either work for just one boot or none at all. since I have updated my kernel on several occasions, I have also re-installed my NVIDIA kernel module by downloading the run file from NVIDIA's website. It also follows instructions from this post. I have installed the linux header files and the xorg-dev files from repository I have also tried this.
I keep getting a warning messaged almost every time I reboot about Ubuntu running in low-graphics mode on a Macbook 5,1. This has been happening since Lucid Beta 1.
Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the system's kernel log for additional error messages and consult the NVIDIA README for details.
After I finish loading in low graphics mode I have to run "sudo nvidia-xconfig". Then, the next reboot the graphics card driver is loaded properly. Is anyone else experiencing this problem or have an idea how to correct it? I know it is a long shot, but do you think doing a fresh install of the stable release would work?
This problem has bothered me in both my previous install of 10.04 and my current one. Intermittently, booting into ubuntu results in ubuntu running in low-graphics mode, informing me that the Nvidia kernel module has failed to initialize.Running nvidia-xconfig does not help. Removing and then reinstalling the nvidia driver in Hardware drivers does not help. I experience the issue with both the 173 and current drivers.I love ubuntu, but this is making me seriously consider exploring other distros. Perhaps this not a bad thing - after I return from this exploration,
I am trying to get my Debian system running. I have an older Dell Precision 490 with two dual core CPUs. It has 16G Ram, an 150G Intel solid state drive, a 230G data drive, and a 600G backup drive. I have two Samsung monitors attached to the NVIDIA Geforce FX 5xx card. I have been using this machine for several years with Etch, then Lenny, running KDE 3.5. I recently needed to upgrade to Squeeze and KDE4 and have had nothing but problems since. I keep having issues with the video drivers, every time I touch anything the drivers seem to upgrade from the legacy 173 to the current 195.
There have been other library compatibility issues as well (gclib) and the machine has not been stable. This morning the system was running very slowly with X running at 100% (from top) and then the entire system froze. After a hard reboot, X did restart. The Xorg.0.log has the following message: "Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module! Please ensure that there is a supported NVIDIA GPU in this system, and that the NVIDIA device files have been created properly..."
I installed slackware 13.1 x86_64 bit with multilib, and its been about a month already, I'm really enjoying slackware but I am being troubled with my nvidia card, and I need to get my 3D acceleration working. And I've been looking around the net for information and kept on trying to make my nvidia card to work but to no avail. I cant get X to start, once I put in a xorg.conf stating to use the nvidia card. After troubleshooting for almost 2 weeks and now at my wits end, I now come humbly looking for help in linuxquestions slackware community forum.I've installed nvidia 64 bit kernel, drivers from slackbuilds (version 256.44). The laptop model I'm trying to get it working is an -ASUS K52J Intel Core i3 2.40Ghz with 2GB RAM and with an Nvidia Geforce 310M with 1GB dedicated VRAM.
im using a toshiba satellite u305-s2804 laptop with windows 7 installed it has 2gb ram .intel centrino dual core processor,160 gb hd ., what i wanna do is dual boot between windows and opensuse 11.3 which i downloaded today . i went ahead and set up a partion for the linux to be installed on (the space i gave linux is 25 gb) . but during the installation i got this error

I`am trying to install drivers for a very old graphics card GeForce2 GTS/Pro on Suse 11.2. I downloaded driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.13-pkg1.run and install it successfully. But when I launch "sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia" it crushes with error "isax: could not import file: /var/cache/sax/files/config at /usr/sbin/isax line 199"
my sound works when i boot up but as soon as i play a couple of files with VLC video or audio it doesn't matter the sound stops and comes up with an error saying: ALSA version problem:VLC failed to re-initialize your sound output device. Please update alsa-lib to version 1.0.22 or higher to fix this issue.Potential ALSA version problem:VLC failed to initialize your sound output device (if any).Please update alsa-lib to version 1.0.23-2-g8d80d5f or higher to try to fix this issue.

have an OpenSuSE 11.4 (Linux 184.108.40.206-0.5-desktop) with XBMC (10.1) installed.During installation of SuSE, I've created a user called "xbmc" and enabled autologin for this user. After XBMC have been installed I added the following to /home/xbmc/.xinitrc - "exec /usr/bin/ck-launch-session /usr/bin/dbus-launch --exit-with-session /usr/bin/xbmc --standalone -fs"... so far so good - everything is perfectly fine..... or at least almost - when trying to play some musik I get the message "Failed to initialize audio device, Check your Audio Settings"... but if I close XBMC, log in to Gnome as root, open a terminal an su to user "xbmc" and start xbmc from commandline it works if I choose "Internal Analog Audio" in System -> System -> Audio Output. Now the spooky/funny parts appears... I check the options in Audio Output I see the following:
Defaults iec958 hdmi HDA Intel Defaults
When returning to auto-login - it stops working again... By the way - to be sure that it wasn't a rights-problem, I ended up changing the UID for the "xbmc"-user to "0" to ensure root-privilegies
Everytime I log into Gnome Desktop I get this message : failed to initialize a HAL contextHere is the exact error message when I look into auth.logQuote:gnome-keyring-daemon: failed to initialize a HAL context: (null)gnome-keyring-daemon: Scheduling hal init retry
I just finnished my slackware upgrade to current (as you may know from my previous post), and now i am facing another problem.When i type startx i get error:Failed to initialize the GLX module,...,try reinstalling the NVidia driverno screens foundOkay, i thought i should reinstall the Nvidia drivers..And then when i ran the driver install file, i got another error:Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'....Kernel module load errorWhat should i do now ? Nothing works! New kernel
I receive following error when trying to enable strigi. "strigi service failed to initialize, most likely due to installation problem" I have searched internet, obviously not good enough, and i have found nothing. Nothing that would work. i have tried installing openjdk-devel as suggested, soprano. And still nothing. I have same problems on both boxes running Fedora 12.
Code: Failed to initialize Failed to initialize packaging backend This may occur if other packaging tools are being used simultaneously. under more details i get:
Code: There are unfinished transactions remaining. Please run yum-complete-transaction as root. I get to terminal, and as a root I try yum-complete-transaction, but it just says there are no unfinished transactions left. I tried to update thru yum, but this is what I get:
Since Livna went down, I've been having having problems with KPackagekit. I disabled the Libna repo by setting enabled=0 in /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo, and have been able to update with Yum.KPackageKit fails on me now with the message "Failed to initialize backend. This may occur if other packaging tools are used simultaneously."Then it fails to finish, which causes me to reboot before I can use Yum successfully.Under Settings, I see no indication that it knows where the repositories are, and no way to add repos.
I installed Blueman & paired my headset successfully but I get this error message when I connect my headset, "Failed to initialize pulseaudio bluetooth module. Bluetooth audio over pulseaudio will not work". When I go to Pulse Audio Volume Control, it's not showing in my hardware list.
I am recently getting a very weird error on my Webmin. The result of this problem I suspect is I am no longer able to log into my Maia Mailguard which is my Spam Viewer.

Problem: computer and graphics card had been running for months without problem. For some reason, last night, things locked up...wouldn't think it's related, but happened when I noticed I was locked out of creating new folders on my usb attached My Book storage drive. So, from terminal I tried to sudo change permissions to read/write. Everything locked up. Now, every time I reboot it states needing to use low graphics mode "Screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly."
When I check the error log I see: "(EE) Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module.."(EE) NVIDIA(0): ***Aborting* Screens found but none have a usable configuration. Fatal Server Error - no screens found"
If I try to then start in safe low graphics mode or restart X, I get the Ubuntu splash screen with the 5 dots that turn red to show progress...but nothing ever happens. I can switch to VT 1, login at command line, and type "startx" and then the graphical desktop loads just fine. Video playback, etc. is perfect and fine - not in low graphics mode at all. System seems totally normal.
However, I have to go through these steps each time I reboot. Also, I noticed that when I try to boot from Ubuntu Live CD I can't. I get as far as picking English as a language, then screen goes blank and goes to power saving mode (no signal being sent). This greatly concerns me as even though I have a work around for now - getting to command line then startx'ing - if I ever needed to reinstall from the CD, it seems I can't.
Some info on my pc:Running 10.04 on Compaq Presario SR1950NX AMD 64 GeForce 6150 LE/PCI/SSE2/3DNow! <- believe built onto motherboard on what I can do to fix? Is this a sign that something is wrong with my video card?
From the GUI, software update gives the error "Failed to Initialize - Failed to initialize the packaging backend. This may occur if other packaging tools are being used simultaneously." In the more details, "There are unfinished transactions remaining.
I run a terminal, switch to root and do as it tells me. It returns saying that there are no unfinished transactions. I've run it several times with the same result. Then I run "yum clean all" and "yum upgrade." The upgrade processes runs and reports "there are unfinished transactions..." However, the upgrade process still completes. Basically it is now a severe annoyance, but the system does seem to upgrade. I just cannot figure out why there are somehow unfinished transactions that I cannot get rid of. I tried reinitializing the rpm database - no luck. How can I somehow reset yum?
I downloaded the latest version of DirectX and installed it through Wine. It seemed to work, but whenever I try to play Akane's new Death Note game, it says 'Failed to initialize DirectX Audio' and closes the window. How can I fix this problem? I need my fan service!
I spent quite a lot of time jumping from one thread to another trying to fix a problem with my NVIDIA drivers in Lucid. I was getting the error message on startup: NVIDIA: Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module ...Failed to load module "nvidia" (module-specific error, 0) No drivers available".
After a lot of trial and error, this is what worked for me (I have updated this thread following [URL]):
- Download the latest NVIDIA driver from www.nvidia.com/page/drivers.html
- In the terminal cd to the directory where you downloaded the driver package (e.g., $ cd Downloads)and make it executable (e.g., $ sudo chmod +x ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-256.53.run)
