Debian Configuration :: Login Failure After Installing Nvidia Drivers

Sep 17, 2015

I'm new to Debian and installed it with Cinnamon because I want to learn some OpenCL programming in Linux. I have a Nvidia GT 525M GPU. Once the operating system is installed, I followed [URL] ..... article to install the proprietary Nvidia drivers. As the forum suggested, instead of creating an Xorg server configuration file, I installed Bumblebee according to [URL]..... article.

But when I restarted my machine after completing all the steps when I try to log in I get the follwoing message:

"failed to load session 'cinnamon'"

I cannot login as normal user or root.

Ubuntu Installation :: With NVIDIA 310M Graphics Card Drivers (310M) On A Dell Vostro 3300 - Errors "no Device Found - No Screens Found"

Oct 28, 2010

I have a Dell Vostro 3300, i5 460 processor with a NVIDIA 310M Graphics Card. I'm doing a KUBUNTU 10.10 (Maverick) install with the following results. The Live CD boots just fine to, "TEST," or "Install." Installation goes fine. However, the graphics card being used is the Intel i915. I have tried installing the NVIDIA drivers directly from the, "Additional Drivers," tool and after the reboot I get through the boot screen to the console. I try to manually startx and I get the errors, "no device found," "no screens found." The second install I tried purging and blacklisting the nouveau drivers and entering safe mode. Then using apt-get install nvidia-current. After that, nvidia-xconfig. Same results.

The third attempt I re-installed and this time downloaded the drivers from the Nvidia site (version 256.53). Blacklisted nouveau, remove all nvidia, updated initramfs, etc. The install went fine however I still end up at a console after boot with the same messages as above. No device found, no screens found. I've tried searching through the forum and web and have tried things like adding the modset option along with many other hacks, tips and fixes. still, no go.I can live with the Intel graphics for now although I lose 512MB of memory. Unfortunately there is no way to disable or change this set-up in the BIOS. I've seen quite a few bug reports at Launchpad:

1. Is this something I should just wait til a fix comes? Will a fix come?
2. Is there, or will there be an official Updated Ubuntu Guide for Maverick to install NVIDIA drivers with this tecnology?
3. Lastly, is there anything else I should try??

Ubuntu :: Nvidia 'No Screens Found' After Every Reboot?

Nov 7, 2010

Some background to summarise, I have installed 10.10 clean over the top of 10.04. I did not have X/display problems on 10.04. After installing the Nvidia display driver for my device (Asus 8800GT - display driver: NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.12.run) in order to get dual-headed display working under TwinView (as I had previously have used on 10.04 problem-free) I cannot reboot/shutdown my machine without a Fatal Error No Screens Found message appearing at boot time.I can hibernate, but this is less than ideal, especially after installing updates which require a restart. Every time this does happen I can re-run the driver installation and all is well again.Below are two copies of my Xorg log. The first is the erroneous log, the second the successful log. Below that is my xorg config file generated via nvidia-xconfig.

ERRONEOUS XORG LOG FILE

Debian :: Xorg Configuration And Nvidia Drivers

Sep 29, 2015

While trying to solve the problem indicated in another thread [URL] .... I realised that I do not have the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Also, if I enter the command Code: Select allsudo kate I get

Code: Select allcannot connect to X server :0

I tried logging in to another terminal (tty3) and entered

Code: Select allstartx

Kate opened normally with root permissions.

Currently I have a Nvidia card but I am using nouveau drivers.

My question is: installing the Nvidia drivers (following the guide in [URL] .....) would fix these Xorg issues?

I had troubles with nvidia drivers in other distros....

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.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.1 With KDE 3.5 - Screens Found But No Usable Configuration

Dec 27, 2009

I previously used 11.1 with KDE 3.5. Since I have /home on a separate partition I decided to install 11.2 from scratch to avoid any conflicts with KDE 4 installing. No problems on first reboot and some updates were installed. Now at each boot I'm dropped into text login. If I try <startx> I get <no screens found> and /var/log/Xorg.0.log gives <screens found but none have usable configuration>. However if I add vga=952 at the boot screen (for a 1280x800 laptop) I get into graphical login and everything works well (yes even KDE 4). Below is an snip from /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Debian Configuration :: Proprietary Nvidia Drivers Stopped Working After Upgrade

Apr 5, 2011

My GNOME system stopped using the proprietary NVIDIA drivers after the recent dist-upgrade to v6.0.1. It was working perferctly before that.

My inxi output:
inxi -F
System: Host thirra-ws1 Kernel 2.6.32-5-686 i686 (32 bit) Distro Debian GNU/Linux squeeze/sid
CPU: Dual core Intel Core2 Duo E7500 (SMP) cache 3072 KB flags (sse3 nx lm vmx) bmips 11703.9

[Code].....

When I tried to configure the screen resolution using NVIDIA X server settings, I was told to run 'nvidia-xconfig'. I ran it, restarted X but my resolution is still stuck at the maximum of 1024x768. I've tried running the above many times with the same results. I even tried aptitude reinstalling but still the same.

Debian Configuration :: Colors Too Bright After Installing Nvidia Driver?

Aug 17, 2011

After I've installed nvidia-vdpau-driver 280.13-1 from debian testing repositories, all the colors on the screen became too bright, except dark colors.

I've tried to change the values from Brightness, Contrast and Gamma, in NVIDIA X Server Settings -> X Server Color Correction, but it doesn't bring everything back to normal.

Either the nvidia driver has problems, or I don't know how to calibrate. But before I installed nvidia-vdpau-driver, I had the nouveau display driver (experimental), and all colors were displayed normally, the same as in Windows 7 and XP.

Debian Configuration :: Installing Nvidia Graphics Card - Driver Error

Apr 28, 2010

I revived my old desktop (failed psu), and installed debian squeeze using netinst. It has a nvidia geForce 7600GT card. The driver in squeeze does not work very well, so I downloaded nvidia driver-installer. When I run it, it comes back with an error saying the kernel (I assume the nvidia graphics kernel) is compiled with gcc4.3, but the system is using gcc4.4. Using synaptic manager, I installed gcc3.3, but same error.

Next I tried to uninstall gcc4.4 and it gave a warning the system might not be usable. I did not understand it, but I went ahead and uninstalled gcc4.4 and guess what, the system is not usable, and I have to re-install squeeze. Not a big loss, since I do not have much in it. How to install this nvidia driver, specifically, how do I get switch to gcc4.3 from gcc4.3? Also, the squeeze install gave me 2.6.33-trunk-amd64, and 2.6.33-3-amd64. How do I get rid of ...trunk-amd64? Do I just delete it from grub?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Xorg "no Screens Found" MacbookPro 3,1 NVidia 8600M GT

Dec 17, 2010

I recently installed ubuntu 10.10 x86_64 on my Macbook Pro 3,1 which has an nVidia 8600M GT video card. The native screen resolution for my system is 1440x900.Ubuntu is installed booting through Grub2 straight from my EFI firmware through rEFIt. I have to disable quiet boot and splash screen but I can boot into a shell.From there I obviously tried startX, but much to my chagrin it did not start. I screwed around with drivers and the like for a bit and ended up reinstalling completely to try and rule things out one by one.

I started by blacklisting nouveau, which didn't load nouveau but also didn't work. I then tried installing the newest nVidia drivers, which also didn't work.Everything I tried gave me the same error, "no screens found".I below is the most resent Xorg.0.log dump with the attempt at running with the nVidia driver.

Code:

[ 3242.793]
X.Org X Server 1.9.0
Release Date: 2010-08-20
[ 3242.829] X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0

I am a computer science student so I am not completely inept, however I just cannot seem to figure out whats wrong with this thing.

Debian Configuration :: Display Size Wrongly Detected After Installing NVIDIA Driver

May 17, 2010

Using squeeze with a GeForce4 MX 440 video card (NVIDIA) I have a monitor (4/3 aspect ratio, 1024x768 usually), and a TV connected via S-video After installing the NVIDIA driver using the NVIDIA binaries I managed to have a cloned twin screen configuration working.

However, the monitor is (wrongly) detected as having size 1824x768 (aspect ratio is widescreen) Using system monitor, I can set the correct size, but only for one session; besides, the login screen too is messed up the xorg.conf file seems right: proper resolution modes are set; xorg.0.log too

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Configure X-Server - Errors "device Not Found" And "no Screens Found"

Apr 15, 2011

I installed debian 4.0 (etch) on an old computer with some pickled graphics card in it, and then I upgraded the computer to one with slightly newer hardware only without the graphics card (the new one used on board graphics). I moved the hard drive from the old one to the new one but when I booted it up it failed to start the X-server and I got some errors listed for "device not found" and "no screens found".

I tried using "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" however I can't seem to find a working configuration. It seems pretty silly that when installing debian it can detect all this automatically with no problems but when it comes to changing some hardware around you are left in the dark with a complicated re-configuration process. Is there not some way to automate this? I'd rather not have to re-install everything

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Get X.org Configuration - No Drivers Found

May 31, 2011

I have ubuntu 11.04 few things first: I cant figure out how to get to the x.org configuration, i've searched high and low for it. I looked in the software center and it says i have OpenGL installed, but when i search for OPENGL or x.org in my applications menu, it only gives me available downloads, and nothing to actually open in a window and use. -When I open the additional drivers menu its 100% blank. not 1 driver is listed. -I searched for and downloaded the proprietary ATI driver from the software center, additional drivers menu is still blank, and I can't run Unity now. -I tried to open the ATI Catalyst control panel, and it says the driver is not properly configured, and to run the aticonfig, where is this? i cant find it. None of this is making any sense to me. I've been reading forum posts and numerous 3rd party sites for days, and nothing works.

I'm just trying to get my laptop to run EVE. It ran fine when I had windows on here. All of my problems with it seem to be stemming from my Graphics, and I cant seem to figure out how to fix it. It seems that every fix I can find, doesnt work on my laptop, and many of the control panels people point to as a resource to fix a problem, I either can't find them, or they are not populated the way they should be. I hate to say it, but if I can't get this issue resolved, I may have to turn back to Windows, The main reason I even have this laptop is to play games when I'm not at home...and I cant do that....all i can use it for ATM is music and internet...

Ubuntu :: Installing Nvidia Drivers In 9.10?

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.

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 ?

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
