I just installed Fedora 11, and am trying to install my video card drivers. I have an Nvidia geforce gtx 260m. So far I have installed both the kmod-nvidia and akmod-nvidia packages, and I still cannot enable desktop effects. After i installed the akmod package, I sometimes see the nvidia logo for a split second when I log out, but my drivers are still not correctly installed.
I'm having problems with my Nvidia card. X doesn't work after installation (9.10), only command prompt. I've read the instructions at http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/nvidia on how to enable Nvidia drivers, but the instructions are only for GUI, which I don't have. Anyone knows how to enable Nvidia drivers from command line ?
I recently followed instructions to enable the nvidia driver. run the following commands:
then rebooted, a tricoloured loading bar appeared and finished, then all i got was a blank screen with flashing cursor. I don't get a prompt to login and can't access my account. I am dual booting on this machine with ubuntu, is there anyway i can restore my fedora partition and enable my nvidia graphics
Can't enable 3d effects on lucid lynx even if restricted nvidia driver (v195.36.24) is installed and activated. Actually 3D effects were working with compiz etc, but at a given moment -not sure if after the final release of the 10.04 - they stopped working, and now it always fails to enable them.
Have anyone tried enabling libvdpau, libva (vaapi) and MPlayer with the proprietary Nvidia driver? Does it actually work on slackware stable/current? (Lower cpu utilization during HD decoding) Is this the correct installation workflow?
It is important to mention that initially Fedora did see the cards and I was able to set up a dual monitor system. It right was after I enable SLI and PhysX and re-booting into Linux that the problem showed up.
I have seen this issue before in another machine with an ASUS board, but not until today I associated with the SLI setup. My guess is that there has to be something that the driver is enabling in the cards that messes up the interface between the nvidia.ko module and the kernel, but I don't know what may fix it. I need this system for some numerical calculations.
I'm in the live CD right now trying to figure out what to do. When I first got into Ubuntu, it asked me to install nVidia drivers, so I did. Afterwards, it said I needed to restart my computer to finish installation, but when upon getting past the bootloader, my screen hangs on "Assuming drive cache: write through". I found this post: [URL] but the terminal commands didn't help and I can't find /etc/xorg.cfg even if I show hidden files. I've added a picture of the screen I get when I try to boot up, so maybe someone can tell me what to do to get back into Ubuntu. I would like to be able to get back without having to reinstall, if possible.
I have recently installed ubuntu desktop i386 10.10 on my laptop (Saony vaio VPCF137HG) as a dual boot. When it first started it worked perfectly, but when I installed the nvidia driver (For a nvidia Geforce 425M GPU) it came to the purple screen (Pic of screen) and no further. It doesn't respond to any commands and would not go any further, even after 40 mins!
Fedora 13-64. While booting the nvidia driver has a segmentation fault:
Code: Enabling the nvidia driver: /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions: line 530: 1406 Segmentation fault "$@"[FAILED] It is not a problem when using the notebook's led/mouse/keyboard. The problem is when I'm using an external monitor/mouse/keyboard. In this case I must first boot using the notebook until it gets to the login screen when I can start using the external configuration. That is annoying because the notebook seats under the table and must be put over the table to boot. The notebook model is HP DV6 2173 CL with a discrete GeForce G105M
My other notebook running Ubuntu works exactly as needed. The whole boot process is shown and controlled by the external monitor/mouse/keyboard.
I have installed F13 and after reading some Nvidia Driver installation guides I managed to blacklist nouveu driver. I run the 'init 3' command and it gave me an error something like 'nouveu driver still in use' then I reboot the system and the fonts were bigger than I run init 3 command again and this time installation was completed then I went back with init 5 command. I opened nvidia x server settings I have cloned the monitors and I installed the flash player,totem vs. Than F13 gave me the notification about updates and with yum update command It has downloaded and installed those updates. Then I shut the system off. When I restarted system it does not boot up. I see the loading bar and It hangs on at the end like forever. I have installed fedora again and the process I have done was same so the result.
This is my first day with Umbuntu and my first post here at the forums. I bought a Dell Pentium 4 with a fresh install of Umbuntu 9.10 on it. Worked well until I decided to do something a newbie shouldn't do and install a graphics card and drivers. The graphics card worked just fine until the drivers were installed and I tried to reboot the system. Now it no longer boots. Some specifics for you.
Since my time with Ubuntu is limited to hours, the nomenclature will probably be wrong. But I will try to get the point across. The card is a EVGA GeForce FX 5700 Ultra. On first start up with this card the computer functioned fine. I went to a place where you could change the screen options. There were three selections and I don't remember the names (idiot that I am). I selected the middle one. The OS stated that in order to utilize all the capabilities of nvidia graphics cards blah, blah, blah, a driver would need to be downloaded and activated. No name, just a driver. OK, do it (sounds kinda windows like). The download seemed to go OK, but now I needed to reboot to activate the driver.
Now: Ubuntu logo comes up. Screen goes to a text screen that says:
Ubuntu 9.10 dave-ubuntu tty1 dave-ubuntu login:
This screen flashes and does not take input from the keyboard or mouse. Next, I removed the graphics card and used the on-board graphics. Same result with faster flashing. What have I done? Apparently Ubuntu and Linux in general don't have a system recovery option? I read something about the GRUB menu, but the system flasher GRUB loading for half a second and then is on to locking up. I can't seem to get to a GRUB menu. What a way to finish the day.
I have install Ubuntu 10.10 64bit in my sony vaio vpccw16fs which have Nvidia graphics card (GT 230M). I have install it using nomodeset and after entering the system I installed nvidia from System> Administration> Additional drivers. Driver version was current 260.19.06. After installation I was able to see the boot screen but was unable to see the logon screen. The computer froze with the background color of bootscreen which is purple. And I have to restart it and have to choose failsafe graphic mode. And after logging in in failsafe graphic mode. My NVidia driver says I am not using it. How to use nvidia driver properly. I have tried many Tutorials present on internet but none of them works.

I bought a new NVIDIA GeForce 6600GT video card for this PC recently and now whenever I boot Ubuntu 9.10 Live I can't change the screen resolution from 640 X 480. I get this message to the effect that the driver is restricted and not free software. When I try to download it and use it it says I can only activate it after a reboot, but I guess it means after rebooting an installation of Ubuntu, not the live cd since it never takes.
Ubuntu recommends NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver 185, so I went to NVIDIA's web site and downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.36-pkg1.run (and NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53-pkg1.run since I think it's the newest, at least when I enter GeForce 6 Series and Linux 32-bit in the driver download search it's what comes up). I noticed that at the beginning menu of the Ubuntu 9.10 Live cd, when you press F4, the option to load from a driver disk is there. I was hoping this means I could just put one or both of the above files on a cd, insert it into the other disk drive and select that option.
I've just installed 10.04 on my Dell Latitude D830 with a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M; upon booting Ubuntu asked me to install the official NVIDIA driver (latest) so I went ahead and installed it, now the boot splash screen is in about 640x480/800x600 rather than the usual 1920x1200 it was when I first booted.
i just installed nvidia driver 96 manually and after reboot pc wont boot, nothing no output , no beep even if removing ram but fans still work and lights too, did a cmos reset but still got the same result,
I have successfully installed the Nvidia driver on my FC13 system that is using an Nvidia NV44 (Ge 6200) card. It seems to be working as I see the nvidia driver when I do a lsmod | grep nvidia and the glxgears program works as well as the nvidia-settings program.Basically, I did the following:
since i installed nvidia proprietary driver on opensuse 11.3 my boot-image is gone. This is not really in issue but i would like to have it back. is there a way to get it back or a bootimage howto or something?
I installed the nvidia driver from the official repository for openSUSE 11.3 and now everything works perfectly, except i get a verbose splash screen after the grub menu.It has worked after i upgraded from 11.2. In my menu.lst it already says splash=silent.If you want more information, please ask, because i don't know where to look or what to show you (i'm fairly new to linux in general).
I realize that many have had the issue of getting a black screen when booting up. I'm posting because I've tried a couple fixes that I read after doing a search and haven't had any luck yet. I have the 64-bit 10.04 installed on my netbook and my issue surfaced after installing the current nVidia accelerated graphics driver. Following the install ubuntu now boots to a black screen and nothing more. 'nomodeset' only allows me to boot ubuntu in low-graphics mode (which I'm in now) and this fix hasn't produced a solution either: [URL]..64&postcount=9 My netbook has nVidia ION2 graphics with an integrated as well as a discreet graphics card (Intel GMA3150 and NVIDIA GT21
I am having a terrible time getting any networking to work with a new RedHat Enterprise 6 64 bit install.

Hey everyone I'm pretty new to ubuntu/linux so please bear with me . I recently installed 10.10 on my new htpc. The initial install went great, until I went to install the updated driver for my graphics card. What I did was I downloaded the driver off of nvidia. Then I did these steps:
2. logged in
3. sudo services gdm stop
4. I then located the driver package that I downloaded and ran it, it seemed to install fine (except for an error about some install script? but it let me proceed)
5. sudo services gdm start
It went to the gdm/ubuntu desktop. However I then connected it via HDMI, and the resolution was way off (top bar was not even displayed on TV) and I tried many different settings but no luck in fixing it. Next after restarting it did not automatically boot to the gdm/desktop. Instead it stayed at the command line login (the ctrl-alt-f1 screen).
tl;dr : 1. How to make it automatically boot to the gdm/desktop after I updated my gpu driver
2. How to fix the resolution for HDMI from my gpu to my TV. (DVI works fine
i installed the new beta 10.04 and it seemed right after the install and update that both nvidia hardware drivers were automatically install together. i deactivated both drivers. one driver showed the nvidia 173 driver and the other one showed "current" nvidia driver.
after a restart i then tried to activate the 173 driver. system required a restart. so i did. system booted to a black screen. i believe its at the desktop but i am unable to see it. i tried to hit esc at the boot screen to enter the grub menu but that didnt work.
