Ubuntu :: Uninstall The Nouveau Driver And Install NVIDIA-x86-71.86.14-pkg1.run For Old Nvidia TNT2 Card?
Nov 30, 2010
Only about 1.5 weeks into Linux guys so bear with me. I'm trying to uninstall the Nouveau driver and install NVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.14-pkg1.run for my old Nvidia TNT2 card. Following these directions I run into a problem in the first step. When I execute the Ctrl+Alt+F1 command and get:
Ubuntu 10.10 splat-desktop tty1 splat-desktop login: if I enter splat which I believe is my username and the correct p/w I get an incorrect login response.
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?
I can't find kmod so I'll go for the Nvidia installer from [URL]. I tried to run it Quote: su -c 'sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-XYZ.AB.pkg1.run' but it wants me to kill xserver. How can I do that? " gdm stop" will kill Xserver too? How will I start it again?
Can this be done similar to some other O/Ses so Nouveau doesn't pre-screw up the kernel for 3rd party drivers??? Would be great in F16 if we were given a choice re: wanting nouveau or not. I simply can not get F14 or F15 to work with the 270.xx drivers on recent equipment.
I just installed F12 over a former F9 system. I have a a nvidia TNT2 card. Formerly it was using the nv driver, which I understand has been replaced by the nouveau driver. Specifically this is what is reported in Xorg.0.log
The install ended up with a xorg.conf setting the driver to vesa. I presume this is because the standard install/upgrade option did not work and I had to install using the "basic video driver". Since I used this system to watch DVDs, the vesa driver does not work for me (too slow). So I tried removing the xorg.conf and followed these instructions for unsupported nvidia cards in order to try to get the nouveau driver working.
This failed. I I got was a black screen with a cursor following the mouse. Checking the Xorg.0.log I see the nouveau crash dump listed below.
I checked for fedora bugs, but I saw nothing like this one. I can't watch DVDs on this system at this point.
The freeze's on my machine only appears when i monitor the temperature of the gpu. Normally i use gkrellm to monitor temperatures including the gpu temperature. When i stop gkrellm there a no more freeze's on my system. Then i started nvdock which also monitor the gpu temperature and the freeze's are back. Stopping nvdock make the system working normally. I have done a few reboots now, warm and also cold starts und everything works normal.

There is one thing missing (I think) a clear guide to clearing out Nvidia and replacing it with nouveau. For all but hardened gamers, nouveau on 11.4 delivers. It also removes one more barrier to what I think is the intended goad of Tumbleweed.The problem IMHO is not that there are no clear guides. The problem is there are too many. No sooner does one person do a guide (that is clear) and someone else who does not like some point writes another guide that they think is more clear (but in fact is less clear in other aspects). And this goes on ad infinitum.IMHO we have too many guides - many of which are sufficient clear ... but the VAST number only serves to confuse users more.
Having typed that, IMHO this is NOT a Tumbleweed specific issue, but its MUCH WIDER in scope and hence does not belong as a discussion in this Tumbleweed thread.
First some specs: Fedora 13 (Goddard) 32-bit NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
The DVI output on my card works just fine to my monitor, which is what I've been using. I installed no drivers; it just worked. However, now I need a duplicate screen to be given via the s-video output, but it doesn't work. Nothing is being given to the tv and nothing is being detected under monitors. From what I understand, this is because I need to install the appropriate Driver.
I downloaded my driver from the nvidia website, but it won't install. it tells me I need to disable nouveau.
I am using an Nvidia GeForce FX5200 card and nvidia hasn't released a driver that seems to work with it in Fedora 13 yet.. However, I decided to do an install of F13 and use the nouveau drivers until Nvidia updates their drivers, however, the nouveau drivers don't work worth a crap with my card I did a fresh install and then ran a yum update. What I am seeing is after a few minutes, all the icons disappear, no fonts, and nouveau starts throwing errors to my message log. Here are the messages I get:
I need to install the nvidia driver on a PC that don't have any nvidia card in it.It's on a PXE server with read-only client's / . Those clients have nvidia cards.When this server had a nvidia card in it, i simply chrooted in the exported / , then i could install this driver.
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"
I have a video card. But I cannnot install nvidia driver because of some errors.
My video card's info is GeForce GTX760 1.5GB GDDR5. Code: Select all$nvidia-detect Detected NVIDIA GPUs: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : NVIDIA Corporation Device [10de:118e] (rev a1) Uh oh. Your card is not supported by any driver version up to 304.125. A newer driver may add support for your card. Newer driver releases may be available in backports.
I've been trying to install the latest NVIDIA driver for my 7800GS card. dl the driver from NVIDIA. ctrl+alt+F1. stop gdm3, after I hit agree I get an error. The CC version check failed: The compiler used to compile the kernel (gcc4.3) dows not match the current compiler (gcc4.4). The Linux 2.6 kernel module loader rejects kernel module built with a..
I have managed to work out how to install my NVidia video card driver. I'm just about to tackle getting the microphone aspect of my sound card in my laptop going. If that goes alright I'd like to install the Wacom drivers for my Cintiq 21ux.
I have sound coming out of my sound card, I just need to put some sound through it (for skype conferences)
Do you where I'd be able to find the right drivers or links to tutoials about or similarto my HP Pavilion dv5 1006tx?It's mainly the sound card and Wacom Cintiq 21ux I'm worried about.
Long ago (Back in the Intrepid Ibex days) I ran a manual upgrade of NVIDIA drivers from NVIDIA's website, in an attempt to get Wine running better on my system. Now every time I run upgrade manager, this message (or something similar) pops up twice every time I run upgrade manager:Code:The system has detected an obsolete NVIDIA driver in your system.Please install nvidia-glx-185 at the end of the installation with the following command:sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-185The removal of other NVIDIA drivers will be dealt with automatically.I actually have nvidia's 190 drivers installed, so the error message is a bit of a misnomer.This message has been persistent with every upgrade, and appeared many times during the Karmic upgrade.
Now I understand when I did this originally every time I get a kernel upgrade and rebooted I'd need to reinstall NVIDIA's drivers. But ever since my Karmic upgrade, things seem to be a bigger hassle than normal.. The system almost locks up after reboot. Compiz now seems crippled and I've disabled it just to get a decent framerate.What I'd really like to do is go back to Karmic's NVIDIA drivers and not have to deal with update problems anymore.However, when I attempt to reinstall Karmic's NVIDIA drivers, I just can't seem to make this error message go away or get the drivers to work. I end up frustrated an hour later, reinstalling NVIDIA's drivers because something is broken and I just can't get jaunty's drivers working at all.
I have spent ages looking at similar problems but not not quite the same. I have installed 11.4/Gnome (x86) and wanted to use my GT430 card. I went here: 'http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_drivers' and used the 'one click' install for current cards. All went ok until I rebooted and I got a 'gdm: WARNING: GdmDisplay: display lasted 0.846578 seconds' message. I got five of these in succession until the 'gdm: WARNING: GdmLocalDisplayFactory: maximum number of X display failures reached: check X server log for errors' appeared and it popped me down to an init 3 login.
So, I deleted the blacklisting conf file so that I could get back in to Gnome on Nouveau (which I did ok). I then noticed there was no /etc/X11 Xorg.conf file so I ran /usr/lib/nvidia-xconfig to generate one (which it did) - but it made no difference. I am at a loss know after spending 8 hours on this. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. My machine is still at fresh install state so even if I have to reinstall 11.4 it does not matter.
i just instaled bt4 on my hdd and i have a problem with instaling drivers... i cant find and install driver for my video card nvidia 8200 integrated on motherboard. exacly i got the problem with changeing video resolution... i have only 640x480 and 800x600, and here is the problem, i cant put it in 1024x768..
I've manually installed the latest NVIDIA display drivers from the website (newer than the restricted driver package that came with 9.10). When there is a new Linux kernel, or a newer Ubuntu version, will I need to uninstall that driver before upgrading? Will having this driver cause any special installation issues during upgrade (such as the need to reinstall the driver after upgrading)? I am using 9.10 through Wubi.
I use slackware 13.1-current on desktop with 4gb ram, nvidia geforce 210, and AMD cpu. I have problem with my X starting using 40-50 MB of RAM and after some hours suddenly rises up to 400-500 MB. I have tried KDE ( with and without desktop effects ), LXDE, 3 different nvidia drivers ( the one made from the slackbuilds ) but no luck. I decided at last to use the default slackware's driver. I uninstalled the nvidia driver and do startx, but it says code...
I have no idea about GPU and drivers, it was a mistake to install a driver for my nvidia just to have desktop effects. I just want to bring the things back as at the beginning of the systems installation and the default drivers. Do you have any idea how to do it?
I've just installed Squeeze and try to install Nvidia drivers, but installer wrote that I have to disable Nouveau first. So could you please tell me how to turn off nouveau driver totally and correctly.
I have Fedora 11 installed on a system that initially had an ATI 1650 type card. I recently replaced it with a GeForce GT 220. I don't believe there was ever an xorg.conf generated or used with the ATI card. Initially, when I replaced cards and rebooted, I was able to start up KDE or GNOME but with only 2 very low resolutions available(the highest being 800x600). Next I ran Xorg -configure to generate an xorg.conf file. Everything I am seeing in this file seems to make sense. But now, when I startx all I get is a red error box being displayed by the CRT monitor with this message:
Signal Frequency is out of range FH 30.1 kHz FV 24 Hz Please Change Signal Timing
The only way I can get my X system back is to go into the xorg.conf file (in the Device Section) and change the driver to vesa. But I still only have 2 very low resolutions available.
ill try to write in english as well as i can.So, my problem is this:Fedora has Nouveau drivers installed by default, and I want to install nVidia propietary drivers.When i try to install Nvidia propietary in runlevel 3, it says that ive to deactivate or unistall Nouveau.
Ok, i do that, but the next reboot, the tty doesnt work (black screen) and i cant access runlevel 3 correctly and i cant install propietary driver. I have looked this in google and i didnt find nothing, so i ask here.
