Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 & 9.10 Installs Fail, Asus MX-M2V + NVidia 7600 GS?

Jul 31, 2010

I am completely failing at installing most variants of ubuntu on my desktop (ubuntu & kubuntu 10.04, 9.10, normal & alternate, and mint 9 tried, all MD5 checks OK). My system has: Motherboard: Asus MX-M2V (google +ubuntu) Graphics card: gigabyte nVidia 7600 GS (google + ubuntu) 2GB RAM, AMD64 dual core, etc.


I've bean able to get past this stage by removing the "quiet splash" install option, however it still fails, usually with a garbled screen. The alternate CDs seem to work better but still ultimatley fail with a garbled screen. Mint 9 when live from the CD had the mouse cursor missing on the normal greed desktop, only a few pixels over a square about 1cm x 1cm were shown. I managed to run the "hardinfo" report guessing where the mouse was and save to a USB stick, I have attached the report.

Reading forums I saw a few things to try so I just installed Ubunto 9.10 alternate CD adding "xforce vesa" and "nomodeset" to the command line. During install I disconnected my 2 windows HDs so as to simplify matters. The install was to have a whole HD (Maxtor 160GB, IDE).

On booting with only that HD attached I am presented with the ubuntu logo, followed by a black screen with the mouse pointer only. At a certain point in the screen the pointer changeds to a insert text cursor. Once I managd to get something to happen by typing in my passowrd at this cursor but after this point only a garbled screen. Another interesting thing, after this I installed GAG to the MBR of my primary SATA drive which successfully loads either of my win HDs, but when I try to use GAG to boot to the ubuntu HD it reports "sector boot not found or invalid" I can get a command line on the HD with the ubuntu 9.10 screen using the "Recovery option" from the install CD but then do not know what to try.

Fedora Installation :: F13 Live CD Garbled Screen Asus M2V-MX / NVidia 7600 GS

Aug 2, 2010

I am completely failing to boot the Fedora 13 i686 live CD (MD5 check OK), in every case after the progress bar at the bottom completes I am presented with a garbled screen. My system has:

Motherboard: Asus MX-M2V
Graphics card: Gigabyte nVidia GeForce 7600 GS
2GB RAM, AMD64 dual core, etc.

Some websurfing this might be a graphics option and I have tried adding different commands to the boot option before the "quiet" namely:

nomodeset nolapic / nomodeset noapic / nomodeset noapci / nomodeset acpi=off / nomodeset xforcevesa

None of which worked. Both Asus and nVidia offer linux drivers for download:

Red Hat :: 5.4 Not Compatible With NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600

Aug 14, 2010

I am trying for Redhat certification on RHEL 5.4. When i tried to install it on my Acer laptop with NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600, I was only able to install it in CUI mode and no GUI. From NVIDIA website I tried both the newest and oldest version they have for Linux, which is with .run extension. I tried installing it using sh <drivername.run> and it is starting the wizard, but exiting abruptly, with a kernel error.

How to work around on this issue? Any generic driver that would work for this display adaptor? whether version 5.5 would work with this card?

Fedora Installation :: NVIDIA 9500GT Installation Fail?

Oct 14, 2010

When I install NVIDIA Driver 9500GT on my Fedora 13 (64 bits), they ask me to install "gcc" package. And the "gcc" package itself needs more dependencies. I managed to install all of those dependencies, except "libc.so.6"

I couldn't find the "libc.so.6" on internet. It looks like the "libc.so.6" and "Glibc" package the same or what?

I think I am experiencing the same problem as a lot of people with the Nvidia graphics driver. I have tried to use the guide here, mjm, RPM Fusion and the nvidia website. Each lists my card as being supported but each time the install fails and I have to Alt - Kitaral - f2 to get to the command line log in.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Old Video Card, Nvidia XFX 7800GT Now Beginning To Fail - Which Way Is Best, ATI Or Nvidia?

May 3, 2010

I have an old video card, Nvidia XFX 7800GT, which is now beginning to fail and I need to upgrade. I am not huge a gamer but I do play/buy games on regular basis. Right now I'm playing Eternal Lands on the Linux side. Looking to spend $100-$150 on a new card.I have a Core2Duo Wolfdale 3.0, with 2ghz ram and run Lucid 32bit. Also run windows Vista64Ultimate on dual boot (rarely).

I would love to buy a new ATI 5770 or 5830, ATI budget cards seem to be much better for the buck over budget Nvidia cards, but I'm concerned with ATI drivers and long term with Ubuntu.On the Nvidia side I'm considering the GTS 250. The only advantage I can find is lower power consumption with Nvidia and Ubuntu has always preferred Nvidia over ATI, as far as working drivers go.As Far as Ubuntu and Lucid is concerned, which way is best, ATI or Nvidia? Has anything changed with ATI support, that could make theor cards more compatible now and in the future?

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Drivers Not Working In 9.10 On An Asus Ul80vt Laptop

Mar 7, 2010

I have an Asus UL80vt laptop. This laptop has an integrated (Intel) as well as a discrete (Nvidia 210m) graphics card.

I want to use the nvidia proprietary drivers because from what I understand, it's the easiest way to set up dual monitors (I have an external monitor). I installed the latest nvidia driver: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53. When I try to run the NVidia X Server Settings GUI, it tells me that "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server. "

I checked out my xorg.conf and changed the device driver to 'nvidia' instead of 'nv'. Curiously, when I run nvidia-xconfig, it changes the intel device to 'nvidia' which is a problem. So i skipped running that and just stuck with my xorg.conf. When I run startx, I get a message saying "failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device PCI:1:0:0".

I've combed through multiple forums which state different kinds of solutions and I've tried different kernel options such as 'vmalloc=512m' or 'noapic' to no avail.

P.S. I've attached my xorg.conf file

Ubuntu :: All Attempts To Install NVIDIA Proprietary Fail?

May 28, 2010

The problem is that Ubuntu 10.04 as delivered is not compatible with the Nvidia driver installed with 10.04. This problem is widely reported, as is a fix for it. The usual form of the fix is as follows:

To fix the above error message use the following procedure
1) Download Newest Nvidia drivers from here
2) Open module blacklist as admin gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Newer NVidia Drivers Won't Work With Asus Laptop

May 10, 2010

There are currently two options for nVidia drivers in Lucid Lynx, 173, and current. With the video card in my laptop, 9650m GT, the 173 drivers work but Docky is painfully, unusably slow. With the "current" drivers, Docky is fine but I get progressively worse and worse static-type lines across my screen and eventually it the machine restarts itself. I've tried installing drivers manually but they won't compile against the kernel.

Before installing Lucid, I had 9.04 Jaunty installed, and Docky (at the time still merged with gnome-do) worked without a hitch. I ran into this error first when I installed 9.10 and decided to go back to 9.04, hoping that it would be fixed. I can't remember which version of the nVidia drivers I was using in Jaunty, but is there any way to go back to those drivers in Lucid?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Fail To Initialize The NVIDIA Kernel Module?

Sep 29, 2010

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?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Drivers Fail To Load After Upgrade To Karmic

Laptop with Nvidia integrated GO 6100. Now stuck in low graphics mode.

Uninstall/reinstall ENVY. No joy.

"Hardware Drivers" reports that Nvidia drivers version 173 are activated at the moment, but not in use. Got the same report from the 185s. 'nvidia-xconfig' produced no results.

Not sure where to go from here. Please assist.

On a positive note, my onboard Broadcom wireless is working without ndiswrapper.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: NVIDIA Proprietary Install - 195.36.08 - Fail ?

I tried installing the latest NVidia proprietary drivers, but it was epic fail.

OpenSUSE 11.2

It fails with an "unable to compile kernel module" error.

I stupidly overwrote the log file without backing it up. It had a lot of compile warnings, but I didn't see anything that looked like a compile error. I'll try to generate it again.

Fedora :: Attempted To Install Nvidia Graphics - EPIC FAIL ?

Sep 2, 2010

I have a Asus UL80j, Nvidia GeForce 310m w/ 1gb mem, i3 core processor and 4 gb ram. Windows 7 HP came on, I love Fedora so I dual boot. I installed the Fedora 13, did yum update all is good. I attempt to use the compiz for cool effects however, it freezes my system.

I attempt to install the nvidia graphics driver from thread [url] and follow the instructions to perform the install and reboot.

First it loads the fedora logo like always and then boom, black screen with a blinking white underscore mocking me. Reboot once more and get the load out of pass/fails and see nvidia.ko for kernel...... [NOT FOUND] blah blah [FAIL] blah blah [FAIL]

OpenSUSE Install :: Gnome3 - NVidia Drivers - Multiple Monitor Fail ?

Jul 24, 2011

I have installed openSUSE with Gnome3.

I had to install the nVidia proprietary drives so the OS would boot into Gnome3 and not fail safe mode. Without the proprietary drivers installed the display settings said:

Driver: software rasterizer in use

After installing the nVidia drivers Gnome3 works in one monitor, but I would like to be able to use my other two monitors (totaling three with two video cards.)

When I run nvidia-settings to generate an xorg.conf file it hangs, so I used nvidia-xorgconf to generate the xorg file and then used nvidia-settings to configure my extra screens.

This fails with a permissions error, running sudo nvidia-settings fails with the following error:


So, I ran nvidia-settings, saved the settings file to my /home/$USER dir, then copied xorg.conf to /etc/X11/

Logging out and logging back into Gnome fails with the error:

This problem extends to Ubuntu running Gnome3, so my thinking is:
a) Imma id10t and something in my xorg.conf file is wrong,
b) there is an issue with Gnome3/nVidia/Multiple displays.

I would really like to use Gnome3, it works on multiple other machines (ironically all ATI devices) just not the machine I use all day long...

Here is my xorg.conf file as generated by nvidia-settings.

Debian :: Building Kernel - Initrd Fail And Nvidia Can't Find Source

Feb 25, 2010

So I'm building a custom kernel cuz I want the fbcondecor patch in my kernel. I use the same .config that 2.6.32 debian kernel package comes with. This kernel runs perfectly. I pass --initrd to make-kpkg when building the package but no initrd is built when I install it so I have to make it using "mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-2.6.33 2.6.33" to get it to boot. Now when I try to build the nvidia drivers it complains it can't find the source. I did build kernel_headers and installed them also the source is in /usr/src/linux. I also tried to specify the path by passing --kernel-source-path= to the nvidia script but no change. What is going on? I've done this fifty times before and never had any problems. Has there been some changes to how debian kernel packages are built? EDIT: Just thought I'd add some info about the steps I took.

tar xjvf linux-2.6.33.tar.bz2
ln -s linux-2.6.33 linux
cd linux
patch -p1 < ../fbcondecor-0.9.6-2.6.33-rc7.patch
cp /boot/config-2.6.32-trunk-686 ./.config

make menuconfig Loaded .config then I removed support for maxtorfb, tile blitting and some sirrusfb thing, nothing thats relevant to my system. Changed cpu from Pentium 4 to Core 2 and added framebuffer decor
support from my patch, exited and saved. Then:


EDIT2: I have now tried to build in the same way with the same strange results, anyone have any thoughts as to what I'm doing wrong just throw it at me, I'm getting desperate and running out of ideas. I've checked all the kernel source symlinks and everything looks good.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: No HDMI Audio On NVidia GeForce / NForce IGPU On Mb ASUS P5N7A-VM 11.2 Or 11.3?

Aug 6, 2010

I have an ASUS P5N7A-VM motherboard and was using Optical out for sound without issues running OpenSuse 11.2. I then got rid of my receiver and wanted to just use HDMI sound. I couldn't get it to work so I upgraded to OpenSuse 11.3. I simply went to the Sound control panel applet and changed it to Internal Audio Digital Stereo (HDMI). I can not get any sound from it on OpenSuse 11.3 either. I have ran sound tests from the command line "speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav" which all run without errors, but nothing comes out of the speakers. I have ran the suggestion of one post "alsa-info.sh" and here are my results:

http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=27...860267e7079411. I have also tried the following post which did not resolve the problem since it seems to be Ubuntu based. I have undid everything from the post as well to make sure I don't stray to far from normal.

Hardware :: Strange Graphical Errors With Geforce 7600 GT

Jul 19, 2011

since I upgraded from Debian 5 to 6 there are strange red (and blue) stripes all over my GNOME desktop.I have experienced these graphical glitches in the past, but only in 3d-intense applications, never on the desktop. What is wrong with my setup? Does GNOME (my version is 2.30.2) make use of 3d acceleration features that were not used in past versions (that is, in the version that I had prior to upgrading)? If so, I may have a driver problem -- however, the glitches occur with the free Nvidia drivers as well as with the proprietary drivers (I tried version 195.36.31, which should be fairly new). I am beginning to suspect that my video card is broken.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installs On 133/266mhz FSB But Not 166/333

Feb 25, 2010

I have tried many things but none of which seem to work.

Motherboard : N2PAP-LITE
Processor : AMD SEMPRON 2800+ (32 Bit)
Stock FSB Settings : 166/333MHz

This is a really odd problem. It installs under 133/266MHz and runs fine. When it's at 133/266 it reconizes it as AMD ATHLON XP in the BIOS and the Linux Installation. I want to be able to install it using 166/333MHz which is the stock setting of the processor! When I set it to that in the BIOS it reconizes as a AMD SEMPRON 2800+ but will not install Ubuntu 9.10.

This is the error I get if I try to run it from the CD, Install it, or boot from the current installation which I installed it with 133/266MHz. If anyone can please help me figure this out it would be great, im trying to use it as a server and would not like to bottleneck it as it shouldn't be. I get these errors


? unknown_bootoption+0x0/0x1ab

Now if you want the whole error list I will type it up.This is a link for the motherboard manual.

I burnt a 10.04 LTS disc when it was released and just tried installing on an old Pentium 2 400 MHz with 320 MB and two 10 GB drives. After rebooting, it comes up in text mode with a tty2 login. Did this install the server version only? Is there a command to launch the GUI shell? There were no options during the install to choose GUI or server version and I assumed this was the 32-bit GUI version and the install disc ran we GUI during installation.

Ubuntu Installation :: Sharing Updates Between Two Installs

May 11, 2010

I'm planning to have two installs on the same pc, so I can break / test one and still have a usable system. I've got my partitions setup so I have a separate /home for both installs to share, but how do I share the updates? I'm going to use clonezilla to copy the working (/) partition, but how can I use the updates for both installs. I'm just trying to save downloading twice if possible. Is there a way to copy or use the updates applied in one partition to the other? Does apt save the updates somewhere?
