Apr 3, 2011

I can't figure out how to install the nvidia drivers for my nvidia 8800 GT video card. I've followed some other posts and all the posts seemed either incomplete, or led me down a path of which eventually broke my installation, that I needed to reinstall the entire ubuntu system.Again, it may not have been broken, i just didnt know how to get back in to the gui version of ubuntu, the instructions took me to the console terminal

2.) downloaded from nvidia.com "NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.44.run"

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 NVIDIA-LINUX-x86-185.18.29-pkg1.run --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 :: Best Way To Install NVidia Drivers?

Apr 29, 2011

I did alot of reading on installing nVIDIA Drivers So far, I did it through the Package Manager. But I got the older 260.* drivers. I downloaded the main drivers from nVIDIA Page. Ran the RUN file. I'm running an Giada PC with ION 9400 IGP. What do you people recommend the best way to install? Custom build? Which I don't know how to. I tried to get vdapu installed as well. But I still get Undefined Rendering in Flash Player. And Boxee plays videos cropped on the left hand side. Right now I have 270.40.16 drivers installed.

Ubuntu :: Install The NVidia Video Drivers?

May 1, 2011

I just installed 11.04 and I knew I would have to install the NVidia video drivers. So it was no surprise when it popped up a warning and dropped me into Gnome Classic view. So I turned on the NVidia drivers and rebooted. In my desktop selection menu on the login screen I have "Ubuntu" and "Ubuntu Classic".

Unfortunately they look exactly alike, with the Gnome panel along the top, and the panel with the taskbar, desktops and recylce bin on the bottom. I've gone back-and-forth a few times and nothing has changed. Some changes in one environment is not set in the other, like they really are 2 different environments.

According to the Software Center, Unity (not Unity 2D) *is* installed.So how can I boot into the Unity desktop?

Ubuntu :: How To Install Nvidia Drivers In Debian 6

Aug 16, 2011

I am trying out Debian 6 and was wondering how I install the Nvidia drivers. In Ubuntu, I just had to launch Hardware Drivers and install the drivers from there. Is Debian a harder distro to use than Ubuntu? Like I said, I am trying it out. I have a tendency to explore the different Linux distros hopefully finding one that is drop dead easy to use and maintain.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Install NVIDIA Drivers

Feb 9, 2009

When I go to System>Administration>Hardware Drivers a new window pops up (no proprietary drivers are in use for this system). I click on version 177 and activate, but all that happens is a smaller window comes up (downloading and installing driver) although it never goes over 0% and then quickly disappears without any "changes applied" message.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Install Nvidia Drivers Forced To Run In Low-res

Aug 27, 2010

10.04 64-bit
NVIDIA GeForce 8500GT 256MB

So I kind of had ubuntu working, but then I tried updating to the newer nvidia drivers and I broke it. I had to uninstall/purge nvidia so as to get ubuntu past the black screen/no signal to monitor...

I had been using a "Broadcom B43 wireless driver" which used fwcutter to extract firmware from various source files. I have never been able to get this install working with nvidia drivers and am about ready to try anything (including yet another reinstall).

**Nvidia drivers 96, 173, & current cause my system to freeze, lock up, reboot, fail to boot, etc. You name it and it's happened.**

I tried using synaptic, jockey and the terminal to install nvidia drivers. Then I tried adding the swat ppa and installing through System-Admin-Hardware Drivers to no avail.

Every time I start my PC it displays this window.

And when I open Hardware drivers this is what appears.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Properly Install NVidia Drivers On 10.04

Oct 8, 2010

Being a total beginner to linux, I can't seem to find a decent guide on how to install these drivers without much hassle, even though I've been searching for almost couple of hours now.

First, my system specs, taken with Hard Info
Processor: 2x AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 240 Processor
Memory: 3091MB (1865MB used)
Operating System: Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS

Resolution: 1360x768 pixels
OpenGL Renderer: GeForce GT 220/PCI/SSE2
X11 Vendor: The X.Org Foundation

Audio Adapter: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia
Audio Adapter: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia

-SCSI Disks-

Now, I've installed the "default" (dunno if that would be the correct categorizing) driver with the "Hardware drivers" utility from System->Preferences->Hardware drivers because I've failed numerous times trying to install the package from nVidia site ; I would always get an error while trying to run the package :
"It seems that X server is running on your linux, please deactivate it to install this package" or something like that, but I'm sure it was about X running.

Ubuntu :: How To Install Nvidia Drivers Without Losing Menu

May 27, 2011

how to install Nvidia drivers without losing my menu.Slightly more specifically: When I go to install the drivers for my graphics card (Nvidia 7300 SE/ 7200 GS) under the 'Additional Drivers' menu in Administration, it does everything fine, wants to restart, and when it does, I have no menu, no bottom bar, nothing. The only thing on my screen is my wallpaper. (I'm using the gnome set-up, not Unity) For whatever reason, my Linksys adapter stopped working with Windows7. I dunno why, I tried everything, it's just not working. Yet when I boot into Ubuntu 11.04 x64 it works perfectly. HOW ON EARTH a Linksys device is working better out of the box on Linux than it does on Windows is profoundly beyond my level of understanding, but no complaints. Once I found out that Ubuntu can actually run World of Warcraft better than Windows, given the right adjustments.I removed Windows from my hard-drive post haste.I've gotten WoW to run on Ubuntu now, but it runs horribly, like 1fps. Added the OpenGL text to the config.wtf file, and it got only very slightly less horrible, but I'd like to assume that having an actual driver for my graphics card would make the game playable.

Debian :: Install Wireless And Nvidia Drivers?

Apr 29, 2010

I looking for a new disto been using ubuntu. my friend recommended Debian, I just installed it and made it unusable very quickly by trying to use repositories for ubuntu. I'd like to know if there is an easy way to make my wireless work like in ubuntu it just does, (i don't even need to attach a cat 5 cable after install), and I'm happy in my blissful ignorance. Also an easy way to install nvidia drivers?

I need Broadcom and nivida 173 drivers. I looked through the Debian forums while I had a working system but found nothing easily and iceweavel was so slow, unless there was something wrong with my wired connection. Is there an easy way to install no free drivers?
