Debian Configuration :: No Sound With Nvidia Driver?
Jun 7, 2010
I recently installed Squeeze. I had sound with the video driver that came with the install. Then I installed the Nvidia driver from Nvidia website. The sound dissappeared. When I uninstalled the Nvidia driver and removed xorg.conf and rebooted again, the sound came back. Then I installed the Nvidia driver from (nvidia-glx, dev and settings) from Debian with Synaptic. The sound went away again. If I uninstall the nvidia driver and xorg.conf the sound will probably come back again. The sound driver is the one that came with the install.
The volumes are unmuted in the alsamixer. Somehow alsaconf command does not work.
My mother board is a ASUS M4N78 Pro with Nvidia IGP.
What can I do to have sound with the nvidia driver?
i've installed debian 8 on this laptop but can't use the nvidia card from nvidia-detect can't find the card but it work 'cause i can see it in the list of hardware, 3d controller the driver from nvidia don't work, and i had a problem with force installation and xorg.conf file.. how i can make it work ? the card it's nvidia 820m
I have installed the Nvidia drivers on my desktop using [URL] according to the Debian way. Everything seems to be fine except the resolution. The best it will let me choose is something like 600x480. I have searched and most of what is suggested around the web is to change xorg.conf. I have tried this using different setting suggested but nothing is working. I did not have a xorg.conf file so I created one with the setting suggested on the Debian wiki.
I've posted here before (viewtopic.php?f=5&t=66322) about problems arising from my attempts to get an nVidia driver to work with my custom kernel. Now those problems are all fixed, and I'm back to where I was: the built kernel boots fine, but the nVidia driver fails.
The custom kernel is as near to the stock one as I can make it, I'm just trying to find a working build process at present, before trying to build a later-version kernel.
I used sgfxi with "-! 40" to build the nVidia driver for my custom kernel; it reported that everything was fine.
With stock kernel - 2.6.32-5-amd64 ...

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.
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?
I've built a new kernel (2.6.34) on our workstation at work. It boots and runs beautifully, but there is one minor problem. I created the kernel as a Debian package along with the kernel headers. Upon installing both and attempting to build the nVidia driver for said kernel, the installer tells me that it cannot determine the version and quits. This happens even if I manually specify the path to the headers. What's going on here, did I miss something during my compilation of the new kernel?
I'm running succesfully Debian 6.0 after first trying Debian 5.0 and ran into missing partitions. This is solved by using Debian 6.0 (Beta 2).
Now it's NVidia's turn: Under Ubuntu (yes...i know it by now...) you had to install a proprietary driver for NVidia to ensure that 3D was supported. What about Debian? There's nothing like this under Debian? How do i know if 3D is supported?
I have 64bit debian 6 squeeze installed on my 64bit pc. I have an NVIDIA gpu which I have installed the drivers for and they work just fine. I also have a 32 bit chroot located at /32 which was created using debootstrap. The NVIDIA 64bit driver gives the option to install compatability driver libraries into the 32bit chroot. Whenever I run any application that uses opengl rendering within the chroot, they segfault. When I uninstalled and reinstalled the NVIDIA driver without installing the libraries to the chroot, and instead replaced them with mesa gl libraries, the programs complain about framebuffer missing. They do not segfault, and some programs that can use sdl instead will work fine. I have xhost + set to allow any programs in the chroot to use the host's xorg. I have the host's proc mounted to the chroot proc directory, and i also have dev mount --bind 'ed to the chroot.
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
I get this error on enabling nVidia repo and downloading driver from YaST.

I have installed the current Nvidia driver(s) for my video card: nvidia-gfxGO2-kmp-desktop 260.19.12_k220.127.116.11_12-24.1 x11-video-nvidiaGO2 260.19.12-25.1 nvidia-settings 256.35.0.pm. 1.1 xorg-x11-driver-vido-nouveau 0.0.15_20100401_bfb95cc-1.10 libXNVCtrl 256.35-0.pm.2.1
Now my problem is everytime I save the configuration for - the open GL settings - the anti aliasing settings - the powermizing settings with the GUI-programm NVIDIA X Server Settings under GNOME
Every setting is lost completely after a restart of my system and the defaults are reset even if i save the configuration in the menu nvidia-settings configuration of the GUI-programm NVIDIA X Server Settings. Is there a possibility to SAVE the settings? They should stay after a reboot. I think this is a issue very spread under several Linux distributions. I can't understand the source of the mistake or bug.
Just installed Ubuntu, have no idea what I'm doing. This message appears and don't know how to do it. "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 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.
I just updated to 2.6.33 kernel and I am using an Intel Mac with ubuntu 9.10 running native. I upgraded because the new kernel has sound working for the imac (at least through headphones). Once the kernel was updated to 2.6.33 the proprietary NVIDIA graphics driver which I had activated through systems -> administration -> hardware drivers is now inactive and will not work. systems -> administration -> hardware drivers says to look in /var/log/jockey.log, here is the last part of that file [URL]. PLEASE HELP OUT. I hate using the Mac os on the other partition.
Under Fedora 12, I have installed the proprietary NVIDIA graphics driver successfully and am now attempting to use the onboard HDMI output. (The board has HDMI and VGA out built in.) I am getting a clear picture on the TV screen, although the edge of the screen output hangs off all edges of the physical screen. The HDMI audio output is being detected, but no sound come out of the TV when I switch the sound output from the Analog Sterio Duplex to HDMI Output in the Sound Preferences. Any suggestions, and what further information is required?
I installed Debian Squeeze with no issues. I went to install latest Nvidia driver as done previously with Lenny. Used instructions that worked on lenny from "the trooper" [url]
Downloaded th latest driver for my GeForce 7300 GS vidio card, driver package NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12.run
Used "method # 2 as described in HOW TO,as it worked perfectly in the past on Lenny. Only syntax I changed was instead of gdm I typed gdm3 as it appears that is the new name for gnome in Squeeze.
Did as folows:
Now the trouble showed up, Unfortunatly I can only go off my memory. A question was asked stating that something did not match, it needed a 3 and the driver had a 4 version or somethng of this sort. then it asked if I new what I was doing (and I lied) and selected yes. And whammo, it didn't work. (This question was asked when i did in Lenny and it is working perfectly still on that system). I now can not boot to GUI, I notice when system boots it starts in "S" mode although I select normal boot from grub2.
Not too bad if I got to reinstall as little is on the system. I just want to know what I am missing on the instalation deal or should I be going about this difrently with Squeeze.
I am trying to install the non-free NVIDIA drivers. I have read the guide here [URL] but what they didn't mention is what to do when you have a graphics card that isn't supported in Debian Lenny's repo driver version. I have the GeForce GTS 250, which isn't listed under the 173.14.09 (the stable repo version) supported VGA cards list. The version I need can be found in Sid and Squeeze (195.36.24 currently). If I add the Sid repository, it seems to work but it returns a whole lot of other unrelated package updates and its really annoying since I don't want to change to Sid yet. So how do I keep the rest of my packages under Debian lenny with only the minimal amount of packages to be under Sid.
I tried APT pinning once but the standard '*' won't work unless if it's alone in the 'Package' line. To clarify, a line like: Package: nvidia-* would get ignored. I would also need a list of required packages and dependencies that must be installed from Debian sid to get this to work. The documentation for APT didn't help much. I can usually get around this problem by using the NVIDIA way but then I can't boot into Gnome GUI at all under other kernel versions except the one I compiled it for, unless I use the terminal to restore the Xorg stock drivers.
If i run nvidia-xconfig, it will say driver not found, and the next time i boot, it will end up in a terminal. why is it so? (by the way i recovered from that using backup of xorg.conf). And i dont think now the nvidia-driver is present.
The nouvea drivers work with some xrandr magic, but the closed-source drivers won't. They fail to detect a possible resolution over 640x480. My monitor has a native resolution of 1440x900 @ 60hz. I've tried to modify my xorg.conf, but to no avail. I installed the latest nvidia drivers from the site instead of the repo drivers, version: 260.19.29, this is my xorg.conf, basically a standard xorg file:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig # nvidia-xconfig: version 260.19.29 (firstname.lastname@example.org) Wed Dec 8 12:27:39 PST 2010 Section "ServerLayout"
hHey i recently installed Debian Squeeze 64bit over my Ubuntu & Windows, i got everything installed and running including all programs i need without a single problem The one thing i havent been able to do yet is install the Nvidia Driver for Geforce 8800gt, ive searched a few sites but one site is telling you to do this way and the the is telling you to do it another way then people are saying about having errors when xorg updates and stuff.
So i was wanting to know whats the easiest and best way to install the Nvidia Driver package (from nvidia website) onto Squeeze 64bit, i've done it on lenny but cant remember ow
If i get this working then il probaly use Debian as my main OS from now on.
