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 Installation :: Installing And Updating NVidia Display Drivers

Feb 28, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu last night parallel to windows vista ultimate (no problems). My biggest problem is that when I tried to install the nvidia display drivers, I somehow downloaded a server based driver (and am having amazingly difficult problems). I use a dual monitor set up (both are plug and play LCD displays) and i'm not too worried about aesthetics but rather, performance. I downloaded the correct driver but now I don't know how to install it. Is there a way to uninstall this server driver?

Ubuntu Installation :: Terminal Screen On Reboot With No GUI After Installing Nvidia Drivers On 10.04

Nov 4, 2010

who installed nvidia drivers on Ubuntu 10.04 and gets a terminal screen on reboot with no GUI.I came across this fix trying to install the drivers on Ubuntu 10.10. later i find that the same thing happens to me on 10.04 but one of the fixes i came across works perfect with it. Ok, so you just installed ubuntu 10.04 updated it through update manager and installed your nvidia drivers but when you rebooted and tried to log on you find yourself in a terminal interface well i found an easy fix for that.

i hope it works for you not saying it will though im new to the linux world only just coming out of windows and i dont know much anyways just log on the terminal and use command "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" then run nvidia-xconfig command reboot and you should be fine only wish this would work for ubuntu 10.10

May 2, 2011

I want to install NVIDIA drivers on my Debian Squeeze so that I can use parallel computing packages like CUDA C or OpenCL for my Master Thesis. I have NVIDIA Geforce 310M.

I found a link in wiki.debian which gives me two ways to install NVIDIA drivers and I want to install the NVIDIA way (non-debian way).I have to stop 'X' and I stopped it by typing 'service gdm3 stop' and then I went to ''init 3'' . Now I want run

Fedora Installation :: Two Ways Of Installing Nvidia Drivers In Fedora 12?

Nov 20, 2009

After searching online and in these forums I found two different ways of installing the Nvidia drivers in fedora 12. If you haven't yet installed the the repos then:

Code:
su
rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
First way:
as su
(1)
yum --enablerepo=rp*g install kmod-nvidia.$(uname -m) xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.x86_64

[Code]...

I used the first way and everything seems to work fine. Compiz-fusion works good but i did have to add vga=795 to /boot/grub/grub.conf to get the graphical boot loader to work again. Should I have used the second method? What is the difference in these two ways? Most notably the second steps. Is one way better or preferred over the other? From my understanding you must do this because of the nouveau driver.

Ubuntu :: Installing Nvidia Drivers In 9.10?

Apr 9, 2010

When I had a wubi install(after I restarted, logged in, etc.) a little icon appeared in the top right-hand corner of the screen informing me of an nvidia driver update, which was required to run compiz desktop effects. Now I have ubuntu installed on an actual hard drive(wubi was deleted beforehand) and I get no such icon. So I'm wondering how to update my drivers. BTW I have a 9500GT

Ubuntu :: Installing Nvidia Drivers Kills?

Jun 19, 2011

Three times so far I have had to re-install ubuntu because I installed an updated or new Nvidia graphics driver for my GeForce FX 5200 The first time, using Natty Narwhal, I installed an updated graphics driver, and upon reboot, I was presented with a blank screen that did nothing. Being a first-time Ubuntu user, I assumed it was me, or a bug in the new release. So I burnt a Lucid Lynx cd on another pc, and installed that instead. Same problem when I installed a new graphics driver, again via Admin>>Hardware Drivers. Reboot yielded a blank screen. Booted from cd again, as I had no files yet to worry about, and everything seemed to be fine, providing I stayed away from that tempting hardware drivers button.

I then accidentally installed a new driver when installing the dependencies(via terminal) for OGRE (Object-Oriented Graphics Rendering Engine) This time, my terminal froze, Firefox wouldn't boot, and a reboot yielded a blinking, blank login screen that did not do anything. Obviously, I'd like to have a graphics driver, as currently I can't run anything that needs 3d acceleration (Games, 3d simulations, even Desktop effects), but it's not absolutely necessary. So if nobody can suggest a fix, short of a new computer, new graphics card etc, can anybody suggest a way that I can stop myself accidentally installing anything driver-ish? The driver worked fine on windowsXP, but there's two reasons I'm not going back to that: a) I hate it. Hate, hate, hate.b) I've lost the activation key that came with computer, so I can't reinstall.

Further detail can be provided on request. Computer is Dell Dimension 2400, 256Mb RAM, Hard drive is almost empty. Old and slow, but I like it.

General :: Ubuntu - Black Screen After Installing Nvidia Drivers?

Aug 5, 2009

I have scoured the web the last few hours and I have come across a plethora of similar problems relating to Ubuntu and Nvidia drivers. However, I still havent found a sufficient cure for the problem.

The exact problem I face is that as soon as I install the Nvidia recommended drivers using the "Hardware Driver Manager", I restart the system but it never gets past the login splash screen. After I log in it simply goes to a black screen and sits like this indefinately.

Does anyone know of a particular fix for this problem? I am at the end of my tether and there is no way I can use Linux if it means either getting a different graphics driver or sitting on a 800*600 resolution. (Not to mention I dont have acclerated 3d support...so no DVD playing!)

I have a Nvidia GeForce4 MX graphics card and im a complete n00b to Linx so please go easy on the technical jargon.

Ubuntu :: Poor Resolution During Boot After Installing Nvidia Drivers

May 17, 2010

I have a HP dv6314tx laptop with Nvidia Geforce Go 7400 graphics card. Recently I installed 10.04. Without installing any nvidia drivers my boot screen resolution and desktop resolution were fine. But I cudn't activate Extra Visual effects and so I installed nvidia drivers. Now the problem is that Extra visual effects work just fine. But during the boot, the splash screen has a very poor resolution.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Volume Adjust After Installing Nvidia Drivers?

Apr 28, 2011

since installing nVidia graphic drivers I can't adjust volume using volume button nor using volume keys. The volume icon has 3 horizontal lines like Ubuntu couldn't find audio device. Morover when I try to run pulseaudio there is "/home/chris is not ours" message.

Despite these facts audio is playing and I can adjust volume using alsamixer, but it is extremely not comfortable to enter console each time I want to volume up/down..

Debian Multimedia :: Installing Nvidia Drivers In Lenny?

May 27, 2010

I'm still getting used to the system. I've been able to install a couple of packages like Disk Manager and Firefox, and was able to mount my ntfs drive. I've only learned some basic terminal commands, but I'm managing ok so far. That is until I looked into what was involved in installing the video drivers I need for my Nvidia 8400 GS card. (ouch!) I'm trying to follow the guide here: [URL] but I've run into a snag in the 'Overview' part: "0. Make sure APT has non-free and contrib sources (consult the sources.list(5) man page for help on doing this) " The link provided [URL] is dead. With only a basic understanding (next to none) of what the sources.list is for, I'm unsure how to fulfill step 0.

Fedora Hardware :: Installing Nvidia Drivers On Notebook?

Mar 4, 2010

I got fedora 12 like 2 weeks ago. I am newb in using linux. I got enough of the problems windows 7 has and thought to change on something good and free . It seems OK but i want to try play some online games on fedora. Seemed it did not have video card drivers installed and tried to install them. Once i installed some kind of video drivers using a yum command i found on web. But i think something was wrong because when i tried the first game installed with wine it worked as if i didn't have video card . Even yahoo messenger works very bad as if i won't have video drivers. I remember at the middle of that installation it shown kind of error like it did not find something.i don't remember exactly what it shown because immediately after that it continued to install video card drivers. But after i tried that game it still seemed something wrong happened. So....how can i see what video drivers i have installed ? Do i need to uninstall them before trying again? I got a CD with drivers when i got my notebook do you think those will work if i install them using wine ?

OpenSUSE :: Blank Screen After Installing Nvidia Drivers?

Maybe I waited not long enough (5 minutes), but the screen was blank, then I gave up.Anyone has an explanation. I can always re-install everything, but then what went wrong with the nVidia package

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Installing Nvidia 8400 GS Drivers On 11.4 ?

Mar 20, 2011

What i have done so far, after all that i still get a black screen after rebooting, so im runing on x11 failsafe.

1) Installed development tools and sources needed for nvidia kernel module build.

Checked what type of kernel i have and installed all the components below with all the dependencies they pull in.

2) Added nomodeset into /boot/grub/menu.lst

3) Set NO_KMS_IN_INITRD to Yes in /etc/sysconfig/kernel

4) Added blacklist nouveau to /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf

5) Rebuild initrd and rebooted

6) After reboot switched to run level 3, login as root (or as user and su to root)

7) Install the NVIDIA driver, run nvidia-xconfig (the -X option) and reboot

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Installing Nvidia Drivers Using Their Own Installer

May 1, 2011

I can install the nvidia driver for my card easily with yast but would like to try using nvidia's own installer. There is a paths problem. I've spent some time looking at 11.4 kernel build paths and they seem to be circular so the installer will not find what it needs. The installers help in this respect is as follows.

Code:
--kernel-source-path=KERNEL-SOURCE-PATH
The directory containing the kernel source files that should be used when compiling the NVIDIA kernel module. When not specified, the installer will use '/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build', if that directory exists. Otherwise, it will use '/usr/src/linux'. Obviously it will fail on the build directory and fall back to usr/............ where linux is a symbolic link linux -> linux-2.6.37.1-1.2

which must be the one in the same directory but it fails to find either type of auto conf file From this I assumed that it just needed pointing at the correct build directory but this turns out to be symbolic link

Build -> /usr/src/linux-2.6.37.1-1.2-obj/x86_64/desktop

However when pointed here it still doesn't find what it needs and falls over looking for the kernel header this time. I thought that the idea of the /usr/src/linux link was to standardise kernel building but if suse use it for something else or nvidia make the wrong assumptions just where should the installer be pointed?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Installing Nvidia Drivers GeForce 210 In 11.4?

May 2, 2011

I am having a challenge to install drivers on this machine with the OS and graphics card stated in the subject. To date I have tried different ways and they are broken in the steps or in the results I get on my machine. The how-to written by ajohnw Installing an nvidia driver - easiest I have found to date. results in a file or directory not found when I try to execute

Code:

/etc/bin/nvidia-xconfig

The article SDB:NVIDIA the hard way results in the following error (copied from the error log):

Code:

ERROR: The kernel header file '/usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h' does not exist.The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files in '/usr/src/linux' have not been configured.

Researching how to resolve that error and I can't find anything relevant to openSUSE 11, closest version being openSUSE 9.Lastly, I've tried this SDB:NVIDIA drivers and for some reason it does not generate the xorg.conf file. At least that's what I am concluding. I go through the steps, reboot the system and boot only to a command prompt. Navigating to /etc/X11/ there is no xorg.conf and I have to copy xorg.conf.install to xorg.conf to get back into the Desktop.

Ok, so I have Linux Mint 7 "Gloria", using kernel 2.6.28-11.
I got a new GeForce 8400GS and replaced my ATi pile of sh*t with it
no problem, Mint starts up fine as if nothing happened. code...

Everything seems fine, so I reboot and all seems fine, except when
I try to play music or a video I get no sound at all. I'm fairly
certain that something in the first links instructions (the Ubuntu ones)
removed something it shouldn't have, but I have no idea what to look

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Installing Latest NVidia Proprietary Drivers On 64 Bit Lucid 10.04

Jan 12, 2011

Thought I'd put this together based on what I just did as it's hard to find a place where you get complete info in one place for this topic.

Not taking any credit as it's just piecing together stuff found on the net.

Of course this is for my specific hardware and system so YMMV:
- Palit Sonic GT 240 card
- Lucid 10.04.1 64-bit
- Intel DG33FB board and E7200 CPU
- LG monitor L194WT at 1440x900 res

Reason for choosing the latest NVidia drivers instead of the ones available from the System > Administration > Hardware Drivers option is that the latest ones contain specific fixes for my card, that are not available in the others.

Prerequisites:

All of the following is based on a freshly installed 64-bit Lucid 10.04.1 system. Some actions may need modification if you have already been tinkering with Nvidia drivers.

1. Backup your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file if any. The default clean install of 64-bit Lucid 10.04.1 doesn't create this file so unless you have generated and modified the xorg.conf file for your specific needs, skip this.

2. Install the following packages

Code:

If this doesn't work, run

Code:

And paste the output of that in the command above so you get, say

Code:

3. Remove the following packages using Synaptic's 'Completely Remove' option
- nvidia-173-modaliases
- nvidia-96-modaliases
- nvidia-current-modaliases
- nvidia-common

4. Create a new text file disable-nouveau.conf in the directory /etc/modprobe.d/ with the following contents

Code:

5. Download the latest NVidia drivers applicable to your card from here:[url]

6. Save the downloaded file (e.g. NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.29.run in my case) to an easily accessible location like your home folder. Make this file executable by running, say

Code:

7. Check that the driver was correctly downloaded.

Code:

8. Run Update Manager, Check for updates and Apply any found

Installation:

1. Restart and choose the recovery option from the Grub options list.

2. Choose the Root Shell option in the list of options presented subsequently.

3. At the root shell run the following

Code:

If you skip this, the driver installer will inform you of the need to do this.

4. This will present you with a login prompt. Login with your admin username and password.

5. Navigate to the folder where the driver installer is present and run it, like

Code:

6. Accept the license text.

7. Say Yes to installing the 32-bit Open GL drivers.

8. I think you need to say Yes/ Accept once more time to initiate the driver installation.

9. Once the driver is installed it will ask you whether it should configure xorg.conf for you, say Yes. This will create the xorg.conf file if not present in your system and modify an existing one if present.

10. Back at the prompt, shutdown the system

Code:

11. Restart and use the normal startup option in the Grub options list, if all goes well you should see your beautiful desktop.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Incorrect Screen Resolution After Installing NVidia Drivers?

Mar 25, 2011

I know there are a lot of threads out there for same or similar issues, but nothing I found was working for me until, by sheer chance, I found this very simple solution on the Fedora forums. Too elegant not to share.Environment:Ubuntu 10.10nVidia GeForce 5500Samsung SyncMaster 225BWUsing DVI cable (in case it matters)Issue:After installing the proprietary nVidia drivers, the screen resolution was no longer the correct native resolution of the display. In my case specifically, the nVidia X Server Settings utility was detecting the maximum supported screen resolution was 1280x1024 while my display's native resolution is 1680x1050.Solution:Open a Terminal window.Make a backup copy of the original xorg.conf file. This is just good form any time you are making config file customizations.

Code:
sudo cp -p /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf_backup
Open 'xorg.conf' in a text editor.

[code]....
