Slackware :: 13.37 With X11 + GeForce 9800 GT - Several Files Cannot Be Found / Accessed

Jul 21, 2011

I recently install 13.37 x64 and I'm attempting to get my video card going but I'm having some problems with X11 currently. After running xorgsetup I checked the xorg.conf file with VI editor and the device was configured as "modesetting". I have the "nouveau" driver blacklisted and attempted to use the more stable "nv" driver with my GeForce 9800 GT and the xserver crashes claiming several files can not be found/accessed. The "vesa" driver issues a highly garbled screen and crashes as well.

The driver now claims a kernel module has possession of the video card and the "nv" driver will no longer work. Anyone have any idea because this did not happen when I used version 13.1 x64 with the same card and had X11 configured with "nv" until I could install the Nvidia proprietary driver.

Edit: (update) I reinstalled 13.37 again and this time it registered the X11 server under "nv" as the driver using xorgsetup, yet it still required the "nouveau" driver edited in to actually enable X11. I'm going the SBo Nvidia packages possibly later tonight or tomorrow anyway. Hopefully it should work fine until then.

Hardware :: ATI Driver Install / Monitor Out-of-range

Jun 15, 2009

I have tried installing the ATi drivers via the 1-click install process, however when I get to init 3 and try to run sax2 (sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx) my monitor just goes out of range. I have tried this in both OpenSuSE 11.1 and 11.0 - both the same. I have tried running sax2 with the -l switch for low resolution - no change. I have also tried the switch "--vesa 0:800x600@60" and "--vesa 0:1024x768@60" which are known resolutions/requencies that this monitor supports (the latter is the native resolution) - no change.

I have tried another monitor but it's exactly the same. My video card is an ATi Radeon HD2600AGP and is correctly identified by OpenSuSE, and displays video fine using the default driver.

Ubuntu :: NVidia GeForce 8500 GT - Get A Speed Boost And For A Dual Monitor Setup?

Jan 12, 2011

I have the nVidia GeForce 8500 GT 512MB graphics card, I put it in my system to get a speed boost and for a dual monitor setup, I don't have the proprietary drivers installed I tried installing them, and when I did it asked for reboot, so I did, and when it came back up only one monitor was in use, and it was running very very sluggish, so I opened up the Monitors from the settings and it said to use nVidia's thing, so when I did, I enabled the second monitor, and hit apply, and it asked for a restart of Xorg, doing that came back telling me that no monitors were find, and a reboot brings me straight to tty1... I tried both the recent version and the older one, both did the same thing, I really wanna get my Compiz effects back. is there a way to get this working? I will do anything you ask if it solves the problem...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE & VX20LHD Monitor - Screen Resolution In Windows 7

Sep 9, 2010

I recently purchased a cheap computer to use for everyday tasks. It came pre-loaded with Windows 7. The monitor I am using is a Vizio VX20L. It's native resolution is 1366X768. I have no problem with the screen resolution in Windows 7 but in Ubuntu, I am having some issues. I have the propriatary Nvidia driver installed in Ubuntu but for some reason I cannot get the screen resolution right. I am currently using a resolution of 1360x768 and the right part of my desktop is not on the screen.

I have tried to adjust the screen size using the monitor settings, but I still cannot get the whole screen to show up. If I set the resolution to Auto in the NVIDIA X Server Settings, it defaults to 1280X1024 and I can see my whole desktop, but it is streeeeetched. Here is some relevant information pertaining to my system:

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04
Integrated Video chip is NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE
The driver I'm using is NVIDIA accelerated graphic driver (version current)[Recommended]
screen is a Vizio VX20LHD

Debian Hardware :: Install NVidia GeForce Driver For GT220?

Oct 25, 2010

install the driver for my GeForce GT 220. I'm using the latest Debian and here's what happens: I get out of X and run ./NVIDIA... .run. It then says that I lack the cc tool for gcc. If I update gcc, it says that the gcc version used to compile the kernel mismatch my gcc version. If I ignore that error, it says that it can't find my kernel source.

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.

Code:

[neek@uberneek ~]$ glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig

OpenSUSE Install :: Installing NVidia Driver For Geforce GTX 275 Fails

Aug 20, 2009

I have just installed openSUSE 11.1 64 bit on my system. Subsequently registered to get an auto-update repo and auto-updated until no more updates were offered. Then I first tried YaST to install NVidia drivers from the NVidia repo (added their repo), but sax2 wouldn't recognize them. So I downloaded their 190. (beta) drivers, installed the kernel source code and gcc 4.3. Then I switched to a console (Ctrl+Alt+F1), closed the x server, ran the driver install as described (gcc 4.3 is installed). Installer said that all is fine (I checked the log to be sure). So I ran sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia, but the driver still isn't recognized.

Hardware :: Unable To Use NVidia Driver For GeForce 9200 In Fedora 13

Sep 29, 2010

In Fedora 13 with the kernel version of 2.6.34.7-56.fc13.x86_64, 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.

Fedora Hardware :: Setup Nvidia On Geforce 5700LE - Monitor Doesn't Support Screen Resolution

May 13, 2010

First off, let me say: I'm a long time Linux hobbyist and recently installed Fedora 12. I've been looking (some say "lurking") around these forums for a bit after I loaded it up and let me say: Leigh, You're an amazing young man! Keep up the great work! I've a question: I've just put together a hobby computer: Pentuim 4, with 1 Gig of RAM and a Nvidia Geforce5700LE. When I install Fedora from a fresh install, everything works great: nice screen resolution, good graphics, etc. but no 3d or acceleration, so I'm very limited on my programs.

So I decided I need to upgrade my Nvidia driver. I followed Leigh's Nvidia setup guide after installing Fedora 12 (all four steps!) everything seemed to go fine, but when I reboot, I quickly see the Nvidia splash screen, but the screen then goes blank. Well, not really blank, I can see what appears to be a kind of cross-hatch pattern, plus I can see what should be my mouse cursor on screen (it also is a square shaped pattern). I suspect it may be at a screen resolution that my monitor doesn't support. Once there, the computer pretty much doesn't do anything else. Usually I can break into the x driver loading and go to the command prompt, but this latest time I can't even do that.

Hardware :: Slowdown With Nvidia's Legacy Driver 173.14.27. Geforce FX 5900 Ultra

Oct 9, 2010

I'm running a Geforce FX 5900 Ultra with nvidias 173.14.27 driver. I'm running slackware 13.1 with kernel 2.6.35.5.

I get a horrible slowdown which is noticeable in emulators such as bsnes and kega fusion. I also think it's responsible for other issues that involve zsnes flickering like mad and hanging. Zsnes will actually crash if I select any filter plugins with opengl output modes.

Kega Fusion slows down to a crawl (we're talking 10 fps) immediately before loading a rom. Playing a rom makes it even slower.

Bsnes has the same kinda slowdown as kega fusion (even worse since it's so cpu intensive) when I activate scanlines or any type of output filter with opengl. Otherwise with no filters and just plain opengl it seems to run fast like it should...

Gens-GS doesn't seem to enable any filters in fullscreen mode... They work however in windowed mode with no slowdown issues...

I've compiled and installed SDL 1.3 from hg repository, then recompiled bsnes just to test it with newer SDL. Unfortunately the problem persists even with a newer SDL version which thankfully for me means I can revert to the older stock SDL without having to recompile everything else haha!

It's funny because I thought these issues were related to the emulators and not the video card drivers. I had these issues for a couple years running ubuntu and trying other distros. When I installed Slackware 13.1 I decided to try my Radeon 9700 pro and kega fusion no longer had this slowdown issue! I switched back to my Geforce and installed nvidia's drivers and immediately had slowdown issues... I'm gonna switch back to the radeon card and test the other emulators but otherwise it'd be nice to know if there's a solution to this issue...

Ok I installed my radeon card: nvidia-installer --uninstall, then updated xf86-video-ati from 6.13.0 to 6.13.2. Even though kega fusion runs fine I get even worse problems with everything else! LOL so I'm going back to my geforce card.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Fglrx Driver For ATI Card Pushes Monitor Out Of Range?

Feb 21, 2010

fglrx driver for ATI card pushes monitor out of range

I am running Ubuntu 9.10, my video card is ATI Radeon HD 3600

Heres my issue:

When I originally attempted to enable desktop effects, I was told that I was unable to do so. Not being one to rush to ask a question, I tried to figure out the issue, and it seemed to be that I needed to install the fglrx driver available for ATI cards- a simple enough fix. I installed the driver, and rebooted my machine, and everything seemed to be fine- the initial splash page came up- but immediately afterwards (presumably when I reached the login screen) My monitor went out of range.

Not being strong in coding, I was unable to figure out a way to remove the driver without a GUI (though I think I very well could have), so I had to uninstall and reinstall (no sweat, I hadn't really started anything yet). However, its obvious that the fglrx driver is what blew it out of range.

My question is, is there anything I can do to get this driver to work on my machine? I found similar questions but they all seemed either to be slightly different from my issue or recommended changing the .xorg file, which does not exist in 9.10.

General :: Toshiba Tecra M2S With NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 Driving Dell External Monitor Quits Working

Mar 29, 2010

I've been trying to get it to work on my laptop off and on for several years now, experimenting first with Redhat (version 6.1, I think) and now trying with Ubuntu 9.04. I've done a full install using the entire hard drive (no dual boot). So I'm trying it for real this time. I'm having a problem with my video drivers. The video is ok (not great) and I don't seem to have any options to adjust it.

When I go into system > preferences > display, I see monitor "unknown", set at 1024x768 with a 75 Hz refresh. If I click on "detect monitors" nothing happens. It says under system > administration > hardware drivers that "no proprietary drivers are in use on this system". I've got two options:

[code]...

For the first part of boot, I have access, but then when it comes up into Ubuntu, the big monitor (a Dell 2500, I think, plugged into the stock Toshiba docking station via DVI) quits working, and all I have is a dim picture (dark, like something's sapping power from it) on the laptop display.....

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 Driver Install Failed On Maverick

Oct 13, 2010

tried to install drivers for FX 5500 today, the one that Ubuntu recommended (173) and the current version (260). Both installs failed when it tried to set up python-support. Returned an exit status of "10". I don't know what that means. I could really use some help, because I just installed UT2K4, and without the driver, I can't play it. I'm running the latest release, as noted in the thread title. Dunno if it helps, but it was a clean install, because an alternate iso upgrade failed and mucked up 10.04.

Software :: Xinerama Multihead Setup With NVidia 9800 GT?

Jan 30, 2011

Recently installed Slackware, and now trying to get my two monitors working nicely. After much hair-tearing I've got Xinerama set up so that each monitor displays separate information.I'm using an nVidia 9800 GT dual-headed graphics card. This is my xorg.conf file:

Code:

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "Xinerama" "ON"
EndSection

[code]....

then the mouse is stuck on the right screen. It seems to recognise that the physical right monitor is the virtual right monitor, but if you try to move off the left side of the screen, it appears on the right side of the same screen. This seems to be similar to the bug described here, but that's meant to be fixed in v1.2.3 and I have v1.5.0 (according to pkgtool). I have also considered physically swapping the monitors, but then I would have to edit all the other OSes I use to know about the change, and also on principle I feel I should work out why it's not working...

All i get at this stage is darkness with a few coloured shapes in the background (Video driver not loaded).I can however reboot and go in via the failsafe option. Once in here i can use the GUI. I am a total noob with linux, can some one give me the instructions on how to install this driver. Its driving me insane.

Fedora :: NVIDIA Bin Driver - Gnome3 - Dual Monitor ?

May 25, 2011

I have recently installed FC15 on my system. Dual monitor support seems to be broken with my setup. I am using the latest NVIDIA binary blob driver (270.41.19). I compiled my own kernel for it, version 2.6.39.

When gnome3 starts it almost manages to boot up, but then it crashes and gives me the option of logging out. I have my system booting into target 'multi-user.target' since I was doing some other stuff and I use `startx' to start gnome3. I tried running having X use xinerama and not use xinerama, both cause gnome3 to crash, albeit in different ways. Other than that I am running a stock install as far as I know.

If there are some logs I should be looking at for gnome3.

Debian Multimedia :: NVidia Driver Not Working With External Monitor?

Mar 15, 2010

I have a Dell XPS M1330, which has a GeForce 8400M GS GPU. The binary (sigh) nVidia driver installed is version 190.53 (installed by sgfxi). This is working well: glxgears gives me about 2600 FPS and compiz is happy.An old Philips 170B is attached by VGA cable. I was looking to set up a method of switching resolution upon connecting to the monitor when working at the desk, since I don't like the 1280x800 resolution of the laptop.

nfortunately, I can't get any output on the external monitor. It does work under Ubuntu, which installed the 180 series binary driver. (Going to an earlier driver is an option, but I want to understand the problem.) Bottom line, I want to work under Debian.As far as I know, nVidia's proprietary driver doesn't support xrandr. At any rate, with he external 170B monitor attached and turned on, I get the following:$ xrandr -qScreen 0: minimum 320 x 175, current 1280 x 800, maximum 1280 x 800default connected 1280x800+0+0 0mm x 0mm

Ubuntu Installation :: Nvidia Driver 4 Tiny Screens On One Monitor?

Jun 25, 2010

This happened after ubuntu pushed an nvidia graphics update about a week ago, on upgrade I booted up into this:Obviously I had to take this picture with a camera, since a screenshot only showed one screen. It's perfectly usable like this, except that it's too small to read.I of course have tried 'sudo nvidia-xconfig', and a minimal xorg.conf:

Code:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Default Device"
Driver "nvidia"
EndSection

Along with purging and reinstalling all of the nvidia packages numerous times. I'm currently running on the VESA driver, which sucks. My chipset is a 9200M, but like I said, it worked perfectly before the last upgrade. In all my years of using linux and kubuntu, I've seen and fixed numerous nvidia driver errors, but I've never seen one this strange, usually it will run or not run.

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?
