Software :: Disable PaX For Nvidia Drivers?

Jan 14, 2011

When using hardened gentoo kernel with PaX and SELinux...but SELinux is disable...I can not run Compiz Fusion. I get: Compiz: error while loading shared libraries: failed to map segment from object: operation not permitted". I went into X without compiz fine with no problems. Just seems to be with Compiz-Fusion. This is with Nvidia closed source drivers.

OpenSUSE Install :: OS 11.3 RC2 - Disable Nouvou Module Permanently; Use Propietary NVidia Drivers?

Jul 5, 2010

I have compiled the proprietary nvidia drivers for 11.3. When I boot, even using the nomodeset boot option, the nouveau module still loads, causing gdm/X to fail. I am able to manually remove the modules with rmmod and restart gdm. Everything then works normally. I have added the line "blacklist nouveau" to both 50-blacklist.conf and 99-local.conf in /etc/modprobe.d

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Set Nvidia Drivers - Dual Monitor Without Proprietary Drivers?

Apr 8, 2010

I have been using ubuntu for quite a long time, and for the first time, I am now unable to set nvidia drivers to work. I have just install ubuntu 9.10 amd64 on an AMD 64 athlong X2 with a GEForce 6500 nvidia card.

The only reason I need the proprietary drivers is to use two monitors.

I am going crazy, I have tested everything I have found on the web. I have tried all the nvidia drivers version, I have tried envyng, ... but nvidia do not work!!

I am trying Xinerama with nv, but it does not work either!!!

Here is my xorg.conf file in which I have tried to use nv driver to set dual monitor. X fails to load and it says that screen 0 is deleted, that devices are found but there are no matches in the config file. Any clue?

Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/cyrillic"
FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/:unscaled"

Ubuntu :: Changed From The Proprietary Drivers To The Regular NVidia Drivers - Startup Logo Is Displayed At A Really Low Resolution

Jul 13, 2010

I installed Xubuntu the other night (completely wiped machine) and started doing all the updates on it. After a couple of reboots, I changed from the proprietary drivers, to the regular nVidia drivers. After doing this, the startup logo is displayed at a really low resolution. Is there a simple fix to change this and use the nVidia drivers as well?

CentOS 5 :: Can't Install Nvidia Drivers (Unable To Load The Kernel Module "nvidia.ko")?

Jul 28, 2009

So I have been trying to install these drivers forever and after going through a million forum posts and Google searches I have been unsuccessful. The process I have been trying starts as such: I hit ctrl-alt-f1 and then login as root. i then change to run level 3 by doing /sbin/init 3. After that's done I cd to desktop and do sh --kernel-source-path /usr/src/kernel/2.6.18-128.2.1.el15-i686

If I don't give it the source path it can't find the source tree. Eventually I get the error: ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Disable Overscan With ATI Drivers?

May 11, 2010

When I first installed Ubuntu, I installed the ATI drivers with Catalyst Control Center, too. I believe the next time I restarted my computer, it was overscanned. It had the 2 inch border around my display. It was terrible, and I wanted to stop using Ubuntu because I couldn't find a fix. I finally removed the drivers through the terminal (don't remember how) and the border was gone.

The problem is, I don't have any actual drivers for this card installed. It's a Radeon HD 4650. I was thinking of trying:

Would the be a way to remove overscan with that? Or is there a way with ATI's closed source drivers I had the first time? Ubuntu crashes sometimes and the screen goes all weird, which I'm pretty sure is from the video card. I also can't see the boot splash for Ubuntu when starting up the computer, which I've heard can be caused by your video card.

I'd like to have the drivers for my card, but not have to worry about the damn 2 inch overscan.

Ubuntu Networking :: Disable Storage Drivers On An Aircard

Jan 15, 2010

I work for a regional cell phone company, and have recently taken it upon myself to create some documentation that will aid our mobile broadband users with installation of the aircards we carry.I decided to start out with Ubuntu 9.10, and I am using a Novatel mc727. I set it up using the mobile broadband feature that is built in, but I am having a few problems. First I have noticed that once you get the connection created, if you try to edit the settings, an error pops up stating that you are not authorized to do so, before I even get a chance to put in the password. Its not really a big deal, and if it comes down to it you can always delete the connection and start over. However, I have noticed that with the card plugged in, sometimes it can take up to 15 minutes to be recognized as a connection. I got to thinking about it and figured it may have something to do with the fact that this card, and all the cards we carry are seen on windows as a mass storage device. So to test this, i left the card in and rebooted, and of course on reboot, the card was mounted and once i hit eject, it was seen as a modem right away.

General :: Live Cd With Nvidia Drivers?

May 12, 2010

I work at a computer shop. I have been making ubuntu live cds for a couple years to help test hardware outside of whatever viruses and other crap software people have installed in their os. Generally I use remastersys to create the image. However, it removes all 3d video drivers, for good reasons which I understand.

Does anyone know of a similar program or a way to include the proprietary drivers on a live cd?

If you happen to have any other suggestions for troubleshooting linux live cd's as well I would be happy to hear them. Likewise, I would be happy to share any knowledge I have accumulated. I like to think my live cd is a pretty solid compilation of hardware diagnostics and utilities.

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Drivers Not Working Right On 10.04

Dec 5, 2010

I just did what i did below reinstalled them and seems to be working again. I installed the drivers then updated my ubuntu install (fresh install) which i read in another thread that if something updates the kernel or whatever it seems to below out your nvidia install on 10.04 and 10.10 i think if i remember right.

Ok so i haven't been using ubuntu in a very long time. Seen 10.04 lts came out and decided to wander back (xp is just getting to old and seems to be getting more and more sluggish everytime i upgrade to newer and newer hardware lol think no one is really supporting it anymore or barely and i'm to dam cheap to buy 7 lol)

anyway so i downloaded the newest geforce drivers from nvidia.

I followed instructions i had seen on here can't find the thread now.

anyway I shut down nouveau or whatever its called.

Then i did a alt+ctrl+F1

cd Desktop

tried using sudo service gdm stop but it don't work so i did sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop that worked but recommends the way that won't work above lol least for me.

Then i had the nvidia driver on my desktop so i did sudo sh N (then tab) enter. it started the driver up said it could not install the application or something i forget eh i'll find out but asked if i would like to continue. I said yes and installed the driver everything seems somewhat ok after that then i restart my machine and bam says i'm in low graphics mode now, and my x-server for nvidia don't have any options in it at all to modify anything....

I'm using Nvidia driver i have should i try the older one? if i can find it 250 something i think it was?

Just curious if there is another method i can try to get a driver in. I don't like using old drivers i tend to like the hot new stuff either beta or latest solid release.

Ubuntu :: Nvidia GTX 460 Drivers In 10.10 Not Working?

Jan 18, 2011

I just upgraded to 10.10 from 10.04. I used to have a manual install of the nvidia drivers configured (by downloading binary from Nvidia website) but right before I upgraded I used nvidia-uninstall to remove it. Upon rebooting into 10.10 I went to Additional drivers and activated nvidia-current. After I rebooted I still had no driver, so I looked in the Additional Drivers pane again. It says Nvidia-current is activated but not currently in use. Then I went to a terminal and typed:

sudo nvidia-xconfig. Thinking it would reconfigure X to work with my 460, however it instead said: command not found What's going on here?
