Debian :: Nvidia Drivers - X Server Starts Very Slow

Jul 22, 2015

Last week I decided to try Debian after some few years of using Arch. And I faced strange Xorg problem. Timings in Xorg.0.log (pastebin) are terribly high. And this is how the log ends:

Code: Select all> tail -n 20 /var/log/Xorg.0.log
[    19.493] (**) Option "config_info" "udev:/sys/devices/platform/eeepc-wmi/input/input17/event14"
[    19.493] (II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Eee PC WMI hotkeys" (type: KEYBOARD, id 11)
[    19.493] (**) Option "xkb_rules" "evdev"
[    19.493] (**) Option "xkb_model" "pc105"

[Code] ....

Latest timing may be even higher than 250 seconds.

Code: Select all> lspci | grep -i vga
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM107 [GeForce GTX 750 Ti] (rev a2)

I'm not sure if this information matters, but:

Code: Select all> dpkg -l | grep nvidia
ii  glx-alternative-nvidia                0.5.1                                amd64        allows the selection of NVIDIA as GLX provider

Fedora Hardware :: Nvidia Drivers From RPMfusion Working But Slow In F14?

Nov 3, 2010

After upgrading from Fedora 13 to 14 via preupgrade (works well), the nvidia drivers for my "nVidia Corporation GT218 [NVS 3100M] (rev a2)" (it's a ThinkPad T410S) work - including 3D, but every thing paints slowly. The Desktop Effects work, but everything visual (menus painting, dragging windows, etc.) are all noticeably slow (and worked fine in F13).

Update - apparently this issue is related to the GTK theme in use. The default (Fedora, or Clearlooks, or a few others) results in this slow behaviour. Other themes, like Nodoka and a few others perform fine.

Debian :: Nvidia Drivers Won't Install

Aug 11, 2015

I installed Debian 8 on my new computer 3 days ago. Everything went fine, until I tried to install the nvidia non free drivers version 352.21 (for a GTX 970M).I read a lot about that, figuring out I had to add the experimental repo. Here's my sources.list for reference :

Code: Select all# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 8.1.0 _Jessie_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20150606-14:19]/ jessie contrib main

Debian Installation :: NVidia Drivers Not Being Loaded

Sep 2, 2014

When I tried to rescue an old laptop that kept crashing (turned out to be HDD failure), a problem with the graphics quickly revealed itself. A graphical install was already impossible, and it looked like the image was starting halfway and wrapping around the screen, together with all kinds of artefacts. It's hard to describe, but impossible to work with. I did notice that all was okay when I booted into GParted live in the safe graphics mode (vga=normal).By the way, the system specs: AMD Turion64, NVidia 7150M.

When I had succesfully installed Debian using the normal non-graphical installer, the same effects showed up as soon as Nouveau was loaded, so I SSH'd into it to uninstall them and install the proprietary NVidia drivers. After purging nouveau and rebooting, the effects were gone! It clearly was a Nouveau issue. However, after I installed NVidia drivers successfully (X also started fine), I wanted to change the resolution using nvidia-settings which prompted:

"You do not appear to be using NVIDIA X driver. Please edit you X configuration file (just run nvidia-xconfig as root), and restart the X server."

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 :: Install Wireless And Nvidia Drivers?

Apr 29, 2010

I looking for a new disto been using ubuntu. my friend recommended Debian, I just installed it and made it unusable very quickly by trying to use repositories for ubuntu. I'd like to know if there is an easy way to make my wireless work like in ubuntu it just does, (i don't even need to attach a cat 5 cable after install), and I'm happy in my blissful ignorance. Also an easy way to install nvidia drivers?

I need Broadcom and nivida 173 drivers. I looked through the Debian forums while I had a working system but found nothing easily and iceweavel was so slow, unless there was something wrong with my wired connection. Is there an easy way to install no free drivers?

Ubuntu :: How To Install Nvidia Drivers In Debian 6

I am trying out Debian 6 and was wondering how I install the Nvidia drivers. In Ubuntu, I just had to launch Hardware Drivers and install the drivers from there. Is Debian a harder distro to use than Ubuntu? Like I said, I am trying it out. I have a tendency to explore the different Linux distros hopefully finding one that is drop dead easy to use and maintain.

Debian :: Debs For Ubuntu And Nvidia Drivers?

Jul 22, 2010

I'm in a bit of a rush so thought I'd ask two questions in one thread here.

1. Will a .deb made for ubuntu likely run into much trouble if I run it on Lenny?
2. Does the nvidia official proprietary driver come by default with a full 5-DVD install of x64 Debian 5.0.4, or do I need to install it myself? If so, is it enabled by default, or do I need to enable it? How?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: X Server Crashes With Nvidia Drivers?

Aug 2, 2010

i've been attempting to get to the bottom of this issue for the past few months, without much luck. i'm currently running 11.3 64-bit (the issue also existed in my previous 11.2 64-bit install) and whenever my laptop is unplugged, the x server will intermittently crash. this issue can be provoked by running flash applications like videos but the same issue will also occur by simply navigating the desktop. the messages log reports the following:

~~~~~
x server for display :0 terminated unexpectedly
~~~~~

the laptop is an alienware m15x with an nvidia gtx 260m. i initially suspected that this was some sort of an acpi issue so i tried disabling acpi for the nvidia card via the "connecttoacpid" xorg option. this did not make any difference so i went as far as shutting down the acpid service. this also did not make any difference. as a quick test, i uninstalled the proprietary nvidia drivers and that seemed to resolve the issue but given the limited functionality of the oss driver, this is not a suitable workaround. keep in mind, i did not run under the oss driver for very long so this result could be just a false positive.

Debian Multimedia :: XFCE Window Redrawing Very Slow (NVidia)

May 16, 2011

I'm trying to use squeeze + xfce + an nvidia gtx 460. With both the stable and sid nvidia driver, window redrawing in xfce is really slow. This isn't a problem in gnome. An example of this is having man windows open, filling up the screen, and then taking another window and moving it around the screen on top of the other windows - it slides around the screen slowly like those old dvd player screensavers, leaving a long trail in its wake. I'd like to know if anyone has any ideas on how to remedy this. Turning on compositing fixes the problem, but that is not an option for me as xfce's compositing creates massive screen tearing while using vdpau. I should also add that this wasn't an issue when I was using Gentoo and xfce.

Debian Configuration :: Install The Nvidia Drivers From The Repository?

Jul 7, 2011

I want to install the nvidia drivers from the repository (they seem quite updated lately). But i hit some issues:

# aptitude install nvidia-glx
The following NEW packages will be installed:
libgl1-nvidia-alternatives{ab} libgl1-nvidia-glx{ab}
libglx-nvidia-alternatives{a} nvidia-glx nvidia-installer-cleanup{a}
nvidia-kernel-common{a} nvidia-kernel-dkms{a} nvidia-support{a}
nvidia-vdpau-driver{a}

[Code]...

Since the nvidia packages are in testing i assume they can be installed, do they?

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.

Debian Multimedia :: Run The 2.6.32-5-686 Kernel On Squeeze And The Bad Nvidia Drivers?

Oct 31, 2010

I run the 2.6.32-5-686 kernel on Squeeze and the bad nvidia drivers. A recent update, and pardon for not noting which, broke 3d games on my box.

From a terminal neverputt yields the following error:

ignatius@lapbox 14:56 [ ~ ]:$ neverputt
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 137 (NV-GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 4 ()
Resource id in failed request: 0x2600013

[Code].....

I can mv xorg.conf to xorg.conf-pre and nexuiz will fire-up. Without 3d of course. I spent an hour or so last week going over my xorg.conf but it just ain't broke!

Someone else saw it, too, and reported it but his post remains alone in the thread as of 10 minutes ago. Anyone else seen this?

I don't play games much at all, but sometimes I just wanna frag muthafuckas and now I can't.

Debian Multimedia :: Install Nvidia Drivers In Squeeze?

Jun 21, 2011

It seems that I'm learning a bit about Debian in the last couple of days...

Here's the thing. I don't appear to be getting any 3D accelaration from my video card at the moment.

Having tried many things (which all failed) and making a mess of my computer I have done the following things:

1. Reinstalled Lenny from scratch.

2. Updated sources to point to stable and allowed update manager to do its thing.

I now appear to have a working build of squeeze.

X is up and running fine, but when I check /var/log/xorg it appears that I'm running the NOUVEAU driver, which does not support the 3D functionality of the card.

So... What is the best method for getting the appropriate driver installed?

My last attempt ended up with nvidia-glx fighting with xorg, so I'm hoping that someone will have up to date instructions that I can follow...

Debian Hardware :: When The Nvidia Legacy Drivers Are Going Into Squeeze

Feb 13, 2010

Does anyone know when or if the nvidia legacy drivers are going into Squeeze? I tried the ones in the Sid repos but ran into unresolvable dependencies. Lots of people were telling me that testing works just fine so I've been trying it out, but to be honest I've run into quite a few problems of this nature. I admit that I'm running a real Rube Goldberg mix of older and newer hardware on this box, but I wouldn't think it would be this much of a problem.

General :: Exit X Server In Order To Install NVIDIA Drivers?

I'm trying to install the latest NVIDIA drivers (not the ones provided by the 'Additional drivers' application). In order to install them, I need to exit the X-server and terminate all OpenGL processes. How do I do that? I've seen many things like 'press ctrl-alt-backspace' and typing 'sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop' but none of them work. I'm using Kubuntu 10.10 and gdm doesn't even exist.

Debian Hardware :: Drivers For NVidia GT240 Video And DWA 525 WiFi?

Nov 3, 2010

I have background in ArchLinux though, and have successfully installed, configured and used it on one workstation and two laptops. owever, i just got a new PC and spent several days trying to get Arch to run on it. Finally, i decided that i don't want to spend my time on this anymore and thought that maybe it's a sign i should try other distros (even though theoretically Linux is Linux is Linux), and Debian has always been appealing to me.

So my question is, has anybody had any experience (or issues) running Debian on the hardware mentioned above? I'm actually contemplating Ubuntu already, because there's a chance it will spare me some time and configure everything by itself, but the pride of a person who used to configure Linux from scratch doesn't let me switch to Ubuntu yet

Software :: Xorg (1.10.1) Crashes With NVIDIA Drivers (275.09.07) On Debian (grml)

Jun 24, 2011

I'm using the most recent version of Xorg that is available in the Debian repository (unstable) and it flashes the NVIDIA logo and crashes the whole computer immediately after. Ctrl+Alt+F[0-9] do nothing when this happens.

I've tried reverting to an older NVIDIA driver, but they either cause the same issues (27x.y.z) or require version ignoring for ABI (26x.y.z) which leads to a segfault.

I would be fine running vesa for now, but it doesn't support 1366x768 resolution so I either have to deal with a bad resolution or have part of the screen cut off.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Gosh Darn X Server Not Starting With Nvidia Drivers In 11.1?

Nov 17, 2010

I recently used Yast to update drivers for my Quadro NVS 290 card. When I did this Yast informed me that my current kernel (2.6.27.54-0.1.1) was incompatible with the latest version of the Nvidia driver, but that the Nvidia drivers could be installed if the kernel was replaced with version 2.6.27.7-9.1. I chose this option (there was a good reason for doing this I swear), but since then, the x server refuses to start using the Nvidia drivers; boot ends at the command line. I've tried obvious things like reinstalling the drivers, but this doesn't change anything. If I try starting sa2 from the command line with, it fails to start and refers me to sax.log. I look at this, and the relevant part of the log seems to be this:

(II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/updates//drivers/nvidia_drv.so
(II) Module nvidia: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.0
Module class: X.Org Video Driver
