Ubuntu Installation :: How To Install Nvidia Drivers For Nvidia 8800 GT Video Card

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

1.) I've installed the ubuntu 10.10 64bit for i386 in an oracle virtualBox..

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

3.) Stuck don't know what to do.

Fedora Hardware :: Install Nvidia Drivers For 8800 Card?

Jul 8, 2010

A few years back I gave linux a try. It was fun but eventually I dropped it because simple tasks like installing software were always a practice in goose hunting and copy/paste command marathons. I am trying again to get fedora up and going. Thinking many of the old methods would be cleaned up by now. I was trying to install nvidia drivers for my 8800 card.

I download the *.run file and it tells me I need to disable "X...etc" so I init 3 to the command prompt and run the *.run file there. Then the installer says.... "hey buddy.. you need gcc to make this work". ok.. I type init 5 to get back to the internet browser. So I search about google for a few moments and then find the yum command for getting gcc installed. Run the gcc and again... init 3 to get back to the command prompt and run the *.rn file for the nvidia drivers. This time the installer says... "hey man... you need the kernel source tree".

Ubuntu Installation :: What Are Best Drivers For Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS

Oct 20, 2010

What are the best drivers for Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS. I'm not 100% sure, but I heard the newest drivers have buggs and aren't 100% compatible with 10.10. I was wondering what the best version of Nvidia drivers would be to install on 10.10? apt-get install?

Hardware :: NVIDIA 8800 GTS - Dual Boot Fedora 10 Does Not See The NVIDIA Driver

Feb 5, 2009

I am experiencing the following issue. After enabling SLI and PhysX in windows vista, my dual boot fedora 10 does not see the NVIDIA driver.

Doing: cat /proc/drivers/nvidia/0 I get? in the VGA bios for both cards.

I disabled both SLI and PhysX in vista, but the problem persists. I powerdown and unplugged the rig for several hours without results.

Here are my specs:

CPU: Intel Q9300
Board: MSI P7N Diamond
CARD0: EVGA Gforce 8800 GTS
CARD1: EVGA Gforce 8800 GTS
RAM : 4 Gbytes OCZ gold PC6400 (4 x 1 Gbytes)
PSU : Thermaltake SLI ready 850 W

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.

Hardware :: Drivers For Old NVidia TNT2 Video Card

Dec 21, 2010

I just installed a nvidia TNT2 m64 video card on my AMD 2500+ Ubuntu Linux 10.04 on Gnome 2.30.2. (yeah, it's old). I'm trying to install the proper driver, but system>admin>Hardware drivers says there are no proprietary drivers enabled. nVidia synaptic packages installed (settings; common; modaliases 96, 173, current; xorg video). I used to have the same, or nearly the same card working great before some a**hole stole it. How to configure?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVidia G92 - GeForce 8800 GT Graphics Card Is Not Fully Functioning

Jan 25, 2010

I already posted this message on another thread but I'd like to start a new thread with it now, and add a few more details. My son and I are having trouble getting the graphics card to work properly in his computer. The resolution is good, but the graphics card is not fully functioning. He works on animation and graphics of several kinds, and the graphics programs cannot run without a fully functioning graphics card.

The computer will not run Blender and other graphics programs. Nor will it even allow for the "normal" "Visual Effects" in the "Appearance Preferences." (It comes up with the error: "Desktop effects could not be enabled," after it tries to find the driver.) The system is:

Graphics Card: nVidia G92, GeForce 8800 GT
System: Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic, 2.6.31-17-generic, 4.4.1 (x86_64-linux-gnu)
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ (3 Gigs RAM)

We know the graphics card works because it works in Windows. (We set up the computer to boot off of either of two hard drives -- either in Windows XP or Ubuntu 9.10, karmic.) Neither my son nor I understand much of the terminology on your forums, although I have been using Ubuntu for some years and have read quite a bit. (I also have the "Beginning Ubuntu Linux" book.) I love Ubuntu, but sometimes I just cannot figure out how to get some things running. We have tried many different ways of installing the drivers and setting up the xorg.conf file. We have followed the instructions on this and other threads. We also installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86-64-190.53-pkg2.run, as well as 173 and 185. The screen will only work at a proper resolution when we set the "Driver" to "nv" in the xorg.conf file. The screen goes completely blank and dead if we set the "Driver" to "nvidia." Then we need to reboot in safe mode and edit the xorg.conf file with VIM.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Enable Nvidia 8400GS Video Card Drivers?

I've tried to enable the drivers for a Nvidia 8400GS video card on Ubuntu 10.04. I've tried change desktop background > visual effects. It tells me Desktop effects can't be enabled. Sudo jockey-gtk looks and tells me no proprietary drivers are in use by my system. I've tried installing from Nvidia's site and that seems to go okay but doesn't seem to work. I have an internal video card that can't be turned off in BIOS )either ON or AUTO) that might be causing me problems.Lspci:Quote:

Ubuntu :: After Installing The Drivers For NVIDIA Video Card It Changed Resolution?

Apr 11, 2011

I reinstalled my computer with Ubuntu 10.10 and the resolution was fine. I turned off my computer last night and when I turned it on today it's back to everything being huge and the screen resolution being 640 x 480. Then when I try to change it, it says my video card isn't supported. All I want to do is revert back to my stock video card in my computer and remove the nvidia one since obviously ubuntu isn't working with it.

Fedora :: Set Up Any NVidia Video Card Properly With The Proprietary Drivers ?

Jan 5, 2009

Quote:

NOTICE: Some very old nVidia Video Cards from more than 9 years ago might not work with this way, but just try this method because you'll see if there's a driver available for your video card in Fedora or not.

I have been noticing that it was hard to set up my own NVidia video card, and alot of other people shared the same problem as I had. I have been experimenting with some things, and here's what I did to solve it.

It's fairly easy, anyone can do this. Read and follow these instructions:

Install all updates. Although it seems unimportant, it really is.

Go to [url] and follow the instructions to install the free and nonfree repositories

Go to System > Administration > Add/Remove Software

Search the following: nv

Click everything which has to do with NVidia. Do not check the checkboxes yet, but read the descriptions. If you've found your video card in the description, check the checkbox at the left of the title.

Install the drivers by clicking "Apply" at the bottom of your screen.

After installing, go to Applications > System Tools > nVidia Display Settings

Set the properties of your video card, such as TwinView or higher screen resolutions.

After you've set it up, click Apply to preview your settings. Change some settings if you like, and then click Apply when you're done. DO NOT EXIT YET!

Click "Save to X Confguration File, but do NOT save the file. Click "Show preview..." and copy the text in the preview.

Go to Applications > System Tools > Terminal and type "su". Press Enter and enter the root password.

Now type:

Code:

Select all of the text in the document and delete it. Then, paste the text of the "Save X Configuration" window into the text editor.

Exit out of the terminal.

Exit out of the nVidia Display Settings application. Do not save anything from this application.

Log out and log back in to see the changes.

If you want to change some settings, repeat steps 7 - 16.

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 Installation :: Using The Video Card Nvidia 7800GT On An AMD4200, MB T6100 - Unable To Install From The Iso?

May 3, 2010

Using the video card Nvidia 7800GT on an AMD4200, MB T6100, I am unable to install from the iso, as progression is halted by a video mode that is unviewable. (black and white rows). I can get to the "f6" menu, however once I attempt an install it fails. My main goal is to install Mythbuntu, however the problem seems to be with the Unbuntu install drivers.This post worked to get around this on version 6.10, however these instructions no longer work. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=379807

Is there any way to use the newest Nvidia drivers that should work from a new install CD? I do not see a command line option, which would seem to allow me to install and update and setup the distro, THEN add my drivers before I run xconf.

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?

General :: Install The Drivers For Nvidia Graphics Card?

Jun 8, 2011

I'm trying to install the drivers for my nvidia graphics card. I downloaded the shell script from the nvidia website. However, there's something peculiar going on. When I execute the shell script it says it cannot find my kernel headers, yet I can verify that my /usr/include/linux/kernel.h does exist. I have selinux on, but just installed os with it on, so contexts are fresh. Checked them as well. After doing some research I found something out. When I run a 'uname -a' I get this.

Code:
Linux ariel 2.6.18-194.el5PAE #1 SMP Fri Apr 2 15:37:44 EDT 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Yet when I ran 'yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers' they installed the following versions.
Code:
kernel-headers-2.6.18-238.12.1.el5.i386
kernel-devel-2.6.18-238.12.1.el5.i686
Shouldn't they be

[Code]...

I see that the error in the nvidia shell script can't locate the header files for the RUNNING kernel version which makes sense. Why would yum install that version instead of the one in 'uname -a'? Or am I misunderstanding something?

Ubuntu Installation :: Get NVidia Video Card Working In Linuxmint?

Jan 8, 2010

I just bought a new pc. It has plenty of hard drive space and ram with a 2.6GHz processor. I'm trying to run a dual-boot with Windows 7 and Linuxmint. I need some help as to how I go about installing my video driver. I have tried combinations of the following: -clicking on the taskbar icon that says "restricted drivers are available" and enabling the drivers -going to Software Manager/Drivers and choosing to install "NVidia 3D Drivers"

My efforts so far have only resulted in the following behavior: The screen changes from color into black-and-white and becomes unresponsive except to close it out The screen freezes up completely forcing me open up a terminal to kill the offending process (which turns out to be firefox)

The next thing I would like to try is to just go to the Nvidia website and downloading and installing the driver from there. It's a BIN file with a "run" extension. So I entered the command "chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53-pkg1.run" followed by the command "./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53-pkg1.run". But I get an error that says the following:

ERROR: You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing. WHAT IS AN X SERVER? HOW DO I CLOSE IT?? I've got nothing unusual open. Maybe a web page. I've tried closing out of everything except the terminal and I still get the same message.

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 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

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

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

-SCSI Disks-
HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22NS50

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.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Recommended Replacement For NVIDIA 8800 GT?

Jun 30, 2011

my PNY NVIDIA 8800 GT just stopped working yesterday before i buy a new grapic card, id like to hear your opinion on which one to buy. basically i want a high end card. google search with keywords like "high end card linux" did only give me cards for around 2008. id like it if there is a newer card, however i am open to buy an equivalent of my NVIDIA 8800 GT.

my requirements in order: at least as good performance as the NVIDIA 8800 GT good and reliable driver with 3d support gnome2/KDE4 with compiz and good performance maximum price of 150,00

low heat
low sound
open source driver
directx11 and opengl 3.3
possibility of 2 monitors
possibility of 3 monitors

i believe in open source, but in this case its just got to work with high performance 3d. on linux i play SPRINGRTS which worked on 1920*1080 like a charm. on windows - which is not a big part of this - i like to try out new games (thus dx11).

other hardware:

Intel E8400
MSI P35 Neo3
4 GB DDR2 Ram
400 W power supply unit

however i never had big problems with NVIDIA before, so im probably gonna stick with NVIDIA, but i┤m open to new stuff! not all of these requirements must be met. as for now, id go with one of these cards (links in german):

Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 OC
Nvidia Geforce 9600GT * 1GB * 1024MB DDR3 * 9600 GT * PCI-Express
AXLE nVidia GeForce GTS250 1024 MB Grafikkarte (PCI-e, 1GB DDR3 Speicher, 128-bit GTS 250 Windows 7 DVI, VGA, HDMI)

and my old one again:

Nvidia Geforce 8800GT * 512MB * PCI-E * (8800 GT) * HDMI Output * DVI * VGA *
