Debian :: How Well Does Nouveau Driver Work?

Feb 17, 2011

I've started playing around with debian 6 stable, and was just wondering if its worth it to go to the trouble of removing nouveau, or if it will handle everything well enough. I use my laptop for a little bit of gaming (older games) under wine, all the basic email/web browsing/writing stuff, some photo editing under gimp, movies/music, and a very little bit of Blender work.Will Nouveau handle all this well enough, or should I use the proprietary nvidia driver?

Fedora :: Removal Of Nouveau Driver Crashes System After Boot?

Feb 10, 2011

I wanted to replace the Nouveau with the proprietary Nvidia driver. I removed Nouveau and changed to console mode with "init 1". Realizing that i did not properly save the binary file i switched back to graphic mode with "init 5" only to have the system freeze. I rebooted and chose the usual kernel in the grub menu. The system continued to load but froze right after the Fedora logo (which hides the textual loading details) finished loading. I can not even switch to a console with ctrl-alt-F1.

Debian :: Instability - IMPOSSIBLE To Disable Nouveau Driver

Jul 19, 2011

I was using an extremely common debian based distro, but I have been rebooting my pc non stop for the last two days trying to get my nvidia fx5200 drivers to work. (it is just IMPOSSIBLE to disable the nouveau driver, i have tried blacklisting it, editing xorg etc, nothing works) I need to know if there are many issues with getting nvidia graphics cards to work in debian. it seems like the last 18 months worth of releases on all the other debian based distros have completely broken all support for any nvidia card made prior to 2011. i know for a fact that in windows xp all my hardware works perfectly, but i really dont want to have to use that, i have been a linux user for more than 5 years now, but all i am really looking for now is reliability. i want to be able to use the nvidia-173 driver, as i know that this allows me to watch the movies i take on my dv camera, and ......

Debian Configuration :: Nouveau-driver Broken After Update

Jan 4, 2016

Yesterday I installed some updates on my Jessie system (I don't remember if the kernel was also updated). After rebooting the system nothing happens after the "Loading intial ramdisk"-message. If I boot in recovery mode the boot stops at the message:

Code: Select allfb: switching to nouveaufb from simple

If I add "nouveau.modeset=0" temporary to the GRUB-entry for the recovery mode, it will boot up in the console-mode.

I was able to get an ethernet connection with "dhclient eth0" and removed the "xserver-xorg-video-nouveau" package. Then I installed it and the removed gnome-desktop again. Before removing it, aptitude said the following to the package:

Code: Select alli A xserver-xorg-video-nouveau

Now it only says:

Code: Select alli   xserver-xorg-video-nouveau

But this didn't change my problem. I found a similar case in the internet, but there were no solutions for it: [URL] ....

The next thing I would do, is to install the proprietary nvidia-drivers, but since I have a GTX 960 video card, I would have to use experimental drivers. So I'm afraid to make it more worse trying to install this drivers.

Also I'm not sure if it really is a driver-specific of kernel-specific problem. My kernel is version 3.16.0-4-amd64.

Debian :: Laptop Will Not Boot - Error Loading Journal

Apr 13, 2011

I have a laptop with important data (no backup) that will not boot. It's a vanilla Debian 6 amd64 with dm-crypt LUKs encryption to a internal sata drive partitioned sda1 sda2 sda5 with lvm2 formatted ext3 for sda5. The symptom is that upon powering up, it progresses (albeit slowly now) past grub, to the point where the the "Enter passphrase" prompt occurs. After entering the phrase, it pauses with "Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while". It seems to work, but then gives me errors like:

ata3.00: status: {DRDY ERR }
ata3.00: error: { UNC }
ata3.00: exception Emask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x0
ata3.00: BMDMA stat 0x25
ata3.00: failed command READ DMA EXT
...some more stuff...
end_request: I/O error:, dev sda, sector 308725410
JBD: Failed to read block at offset 24711
EXT3-fs: error loading journal
and it drops me to Busybox ash shell. My impression is that the sda1 partition with the kernel is intact, but the sda2 or sda5 is bad.

What else I have done:
1. Removed problem disk and installed it into another known good laptop. Issue occurs with new laptop. So, I would assume hd is bad, laptop is good.
2. Booted from hd using grub rescue mode. Similar errors occurred.
3. Using suspect laptop and hd, booted into a live cd environment, which attempted to mount the encrypted drive. It prompted for the passphrase, but said it could not mount the drive.

Debian Configuration :: Failed To Load Nouveau - X Doesn't See Intel Driver

Aug 27, 2015

Built a machine w/ i5-4440 & gtx 960. I installed xserver-xorg-video-intel & xserver-xorg-video-nouveau. Xorg -configure fails, so I added xorg.conf I found online, makes no difference. xrandr can't open display. startx of course fails.

Backstory: My plan was to dual boot sid + stable as fallback with shared partition. First installed stable and whether connected to mobo or gfx card, I couldn't get login on tty, it would just hang on errors. So I installed sid (this time using lvm to hopefully make partitioning easier) and while I get the "failed to load nouveau" errors on mobo, gfx card gives me a login screen.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: How To Clear Proprietary NVidia Driver And Replace With Nouveau Driver

Jun 13, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Loading NVIDIA Driver With Live CD Boot?

Mar 15, 2010

I bought a new NVIDIA GeForce 6600GT video card for this PC recently and now whenever I boot Ubuntu 9.10 Live I can't change the screen resolution from 640 X 480. I get this message to the effect that the driver is restricted and not free software. When I try to download it and use it it says I can only activate it after a reboot, but I guess it means after rebooting an installation of Ubuntu, not the live cd since it never takes.

Ubuntu recommends NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver 185, so I went to NVIDIA's web site and downloaded (and since I think it's the newest, at least when I enter GeForce 6 Series and Linux 32-bit in the driver download search it's what comes up). I noticed that at the beginning menu of the Ubuntu 9.10 Live cd, when you press F4, the option to load from a driver disk is there. I was hoping this means I could just put one or both of the above files on a cd, insert it into the other disk drive and select that option.

Debian Hardware :: Wifi Driver Automatic Loading?

Nov 23, 2010

I have broadcom wireless card in my system. I got the driver from broadcom site. I compiled it against my kernel and the module works fine. How could I automatically load this driver at startup. I followed the instruction found in the driver source README file. But its not working. The steps I followed are as follows:

# load driver
# cp wl.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
# depmod -a

The same steps I followd in 2.6.26 kernel and it worked fine. Now its not working in my new kernel 2.6.32.For manually loading it I have to remove the ssb driver and the download this one. Otherwise it will not work. So I tried adding ssb to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklistle. But that driver loads during startup. So each time I have to manually unload the ssb driver and insert the new one.

Debian :: Grub Load Error "Grub Loading Stage1.5. Grub Loading, Please Wait... Error 15"

May 23, 2010

When I try and boot my Debian computer I get the messages: Grub Loading stage1.5. Grub loading, please wait... Error 15 Is there any way of recovering from this - or is it simply a fresh install? I was attempting an upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze and despite a few hurdles it looked like it was all happening. Got the new kernel loading, and the new grub. It looked as though grub2 was working so I ran the grub-remove-legacy-support command (something like that) and now my computer won't boot grub or Linux.

I'm assuming the MBR on my harddrive is lost, however I don't know what state the partition is in. I'm guessing that maybe this has been lost as well. I tried a few tools from the Ultimate Boot CD but nothing here was able to re-install my grub or boot from any partition or even mount my file-system. I'm fearing the worst but would like it confirmed before I blow it all away with a new install.

Fedora :: X Server With Nouveau Driver?

Nov 6, 2010

I have a machine running FC 13 and a GeForce 210 Graphics card. I'm running the kernel (if I use the newer kernels like, and, the X server won't even start; that was the subject of a different thread which didn't get answered). After a few hours, the screen is displayed in a disorganized state: each quadrant is displayed in the wrong space, and the X server won't respond to mouse movements (this isn't a screensaver). This is different from a previous problem where the X server simply hangs after an hour of so when I use GUI programs (that was also the subject of a different thread which didn't get answered). I think I'm running the Noeveau video driver, but not sure.

Ubuntu :: Removing The Nouveau Driver?

Jun 16, 2010

I installed the nVidia 3rd party driver before removing the Nouveau Driver, this means that when my computer is done booting i'll just have a black screen, being able to do nothing. Can i somehow solve this using a live CD? or is there a simpler way? Ubuntu can't boot in recovery mode neither, so it kinda sucks. Anyway, i'd like someone to tell me how to do this.

General :: Can't Install Nouveau Driver

Mar 28, 2011

I have tried everything I can think of to install the nouveau driver, which is the only one I can trust on my system with the Geforce 8800 card I received as a gift. I tried Nvidia direct download drivers before and it was impossible to alter the screen resolution and the "fixes"/patches were not able to correct that fact. And removing it led to my having to reinstall my system both times. So I'm done with those.

I realized that I could use the nouveau driver when I realized that the second OS on my dual boot system worked perfectly with it. It has the nouveau driver onboard. That OS is Ubuntu 10.04, btw. Also the system I want to install this driver on requires a screen resolution of 1280x960. The Ubuntu is at 1280x1024 for some reason, with the same monitor, it works.

How do I get my stable debian system to download the xserver-xorg-video-nouveau and meet all its dependencies without breaking my system? I even tried reloading Synaptic with the highest available software, but I still could not get the driver to install. What am I doing wrong? Is it just impossible to install this particular driver on my system? And if there's an old version of it I am willing to try that too.

Fedora Hardware :: Get Rid Of Nouveau Driver (permanently)?

Feb 17, 2010

I am running F12. With prior kernels - or before - I could simply rename the nouveau.ko driver to nouiveau.ko.bad. Then the kernel would load the nv driver instead, and everything worked great. FWIW: adding rdblacklist="nouveau" to the kernel params in grub.conf didn't seem to do anything.

On a recent update, a new kernel was added: I did the same rename trick as before, but this time the kernel still loaded the nouveau driver, and then X failed to load. So I had to fall back to the older kernel.

Is there a way to keep nouveau from loading with the newest kernel (ie, the one above)? And also, is there a way to keep nouveau from loading for any new kernels?

Ubuntu :: Use The Nouveau Driver But The Color Hue Seems To Be Slightly Off

Aug 2, 2010

I would use the nouveau driver but the color hue seems to be slightly off. Is there any way to adjust the hue for the driver in real time(I don't want to have to change values in Xorg.conf the stop x, restart x and see if it worked). For example the proprietary nvidia drivers have the color settings in nvidia-settings.

Fedora Hardware :: Way To Get Both Monitors To Work With Nouveau Driver?

Nov 4, 2010

I have two monitors - one connected to the VGA port and the other to the DVI port. Fedora seems to be detecting both monitors (figured this out because when I rotate the desktop cube, the second screen is also seen.). However, the monitor on the DVI port is blank. This happens even if I use just one monitor with the DVI port. I cannot install the proprietary nvidia drivers because my computer hangs (has been happening since fedora 11 or 10), Is there a way to get both monitors to work with the nouveau driver?

I faced this problem in Fedora 13 as well and was hoping both screens would work out of the box in F14. Is there any way I can do this to make it work like nvidia's TwinView?

Fedora :: Back To Nouveau Driver - Display On Projector?

Nov 12, 2010

Fedora 13, x86_64, up to date. Trying to get nVidia Quadro NVS 140M to display on a projector the same as it does on the laptop screen, which is 1680 x 1050. I failed to do so with the nVidia driver (latest version), so I want to go back to the nouveau driver and try with xrandr. I have always used the nouveau driver with Fedora without an issue, but in my former life in Ubuntu I sometimes switched back and forth between the "nv" driver and the nVidia driver.

Doing so was trivially easy - just edit xorg.conf replacing "nv" with "nvidia" or vice-versa, then restart X. However, after installing the nVidia driver via Yumex and using the nVidia config utility, I find that now I have an xorg.conf file that is loaded with stuff I don't understand, except that at the top it says it was created by nVidia, and there are two places where it says the driver is "nvidia." I have searched and all I can find is instructions for installing the nVidia driver.

Apparently that is meant to be a one-way ticket, because I can't find any instructions for how to return to the nouveau driver. Except stuff that is over a year old, and complaints from users whose systems failed to start X. What would happen if I just replace "nvidia" with "nouveau" in the xorg.conf file and restart X? I know if it won't start X I can boot to rescue mode and re-edit xorg.conf, but I'd rather ask first and do it the right way than have to repair a broken system.

Fedora Installation :: Nouveau Driver Reset To Defaults?

Jan 18, 2011

I installed the nvidia driver from the vendors homepage. But since it does not support regulation of brightness (and the display is that bright that I want to downlevel it), I wanted to go back to the default display driver which is the nouveau driver.So I uninstalled the nvidia driver and then I realized that I didn't make any backup of the xorg.conf file prior installing the nvidia driver. Shame on me, yeah.Now when the x-server started, it couldn't find the nvidia driver. Okay, fair as it was removed. Next to that my keyboard becomes unresponsive. That's really aching as I can not switch to a text-based console any longer.I'm able to boot into initmode 3 by editing the kernel parameters in the boatloader. I'm also able to edit the xorg.conf with vi in the shell then and start the xserver to test things by calling xinit.

I already tried to recover a bit from this situation by removing the references to the nvidia driver and replaced it with some information I could find on the nouveau homepage - but no luck so far, keyboard still freezes and login window does not appear. I could take a look into the xorg.0.log which warns me about the keyboard getting disabled but I do not really understand why. Next to that I find some other additional information. My computer experience is quite okay, but I'm somehow new to Fedora, I started half a year ago with Fedora 13 on my other laptop which worked like a breeze.

I wondered where I can find information about how to configure the xserver in the default configuration, if there is some reset functionality or so, that brings me back to installation defaults. Those worked ok for the nouveau driver. Unfourtionatly I was not able to gather the correct package name that would probably had helpded me by removing and installing it again.Next to fixing my setup, I had another idea as this is a quite new install to just re-run the install again on to that machine. Is this possible with keeping the files in my homedir?

Fedora :: Nouveau Driver On 15 - Primary Monitor Becomes Disabled

May 29, 2011

I am having a problem with the nouveau driver in Fedora 15 Code: lspci | grep VGA 40:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV41GL [Quadro FX 1400] (rev a2) The problem is that when I boot a Fedora 15 live Cd, either gnome or xfce, the monitors initially seem to work in that they display at the proper resolution, both as the CD boots and as X initially starts. I can see the background and the mouse cursor - it is "busy" ...

As the desktop finishes loading, however, my primary monitor becomes disabled. With gnome the screen goes black, with xfce it goes white. I can still see the mouse on my secondary monitor, but I can not seem to open any applications (such as a terminal) or change to a console (ctrl-alt-F1 or ctrl-alt-F2). I can boot into safe mode. Adding the boot option video=xxx sets the resolution on the console as it boots, but does not help running X.

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.

Slackware :: 64-current Could Not Get X To Start Correctly With The Nouveau Driver

Feb 6, 2011

After a fresh install of Slackware64-current could not get X to start correctly with the nouveau driver. When ever X started display was scrambled. Only kde would partially work with desktop effects enabled, but very slow. Without desktop effects enable kde was also scrambled. After trying several things and googling came up with the following. To get X to work created a nouveau-kms.conf file in /etc/modprobe.d with the following text.

Code: options nouveau noaccel=1 The one draw back to this solution is that Kde will not start with desktop effects enabled. Hopefully this will help someone else with similar problems. Maybe someone else has a better solution. video card: Nvidia Geforce 6150se nForce430

Fedora Hardware :: RIVA TNT2 64 On F12 Crashes Nouveau Driver

Jan 12, 2010

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.
