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 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 :: Nvidia On Lenny Only Allows 640x480 Resolution

Apr 23, 2009

I've finally managed to get the nvidia driver on my Lenny box. However I've now found that I can't change resolution from 640x480, the nvidia panel shows this and 320x240 as the only resolution. The layout shows "hidden as under 600 pixels" If I go to gnome screen resolutions it only shows 640x480. If I plug a second monitor in it won't detect it.
I'm using NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.51-pkg1.run, older versions appear not to work with Lenny crashing x on boot. How to change resolution on the nvidia in Lenny?

Debian Installation :: 5.0.3 'Lenny Missing Drivers \ Doesn't Work At All?

Feb 27, 2010

In reply to my last question about Wireless incompatibility in Debian 5.0.3 'Lenny', I found out it was because of missing drivers that I chose to ignore, despite the notifications.Now I've got this problem again, this time with different hardware and a different distribution of Debian (Debian Testing 'Squeeze' i386). As well as asking me to load up ipw2100-1.3.fw (of which I already have), it asks me to load tigon/tg3_tso5.bin. Loading the firmware is no problem. Finding and downloading nthe firmware is the problem here.I've searched through packacges and bug reports for a dowload link, but I've only come across a bundle with the driver I need, as well as a few unneeded extras. IT doesn't work at all.

Debian :: Nvidia GeForce 7050 Not Working In Lenny?

Mar 7, 2010

I just did a fresh install of Debian lenny and I'm having an issue with the display driver. The system is defaulting to 1600x1200 and it's not allowing me to change it to a lower resolution. The PC has a Nvidia geForce 7050 display card and the monitor I bought with the machine goes up to 1366x768 resolution. I ran the dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg but nothing happens, it's only giving me options to change the keyboard. There is nothing on the xorg.conf for the monitor settings:

Seletion "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"

Apparently, the install did not picked up the display card automatically. I also looked up the drivers for the adapter and downloaded the nvidia-glx_173.14.09-5_i386.deb file but, don't know how to install it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVidia 9400 GT Drivers To Be Reinstalled After 10.04 Upgrade

May 9, 2010

I recently upgraded 9.10 to 10.04. I have Nvidia 9400 GT which drivers I had to reinstall after upgrade. Initially it was lot of work to get the drivers working on 9.10 and who knew for 10.04 it was even harder for me. I was trying to install this version NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.36.24. followed basic steps like quiting X server first, backing up and then removing xorg.conf file then rebuilding it etc etc ..

After all that, reboot and resolution messed up. My original resolution was 1600x900. Now its on 1024x768 and I tried absolutely everything what is discussed on Linux forums to fix it but no luck at all. Now about error msgs. When computer starts window pops up saying "Fail to initialize NVIDIA kernel module. Please check your system kernel log ...." Then it gives me some options where only two works 1) restart X 2) Load ubuntu with low resolution. Both of these options bring me to 1024x786 mode.

Second error msgs: when I go to 'NVIDIA X server settings' window pops ups saying "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." When I go to Preferences > Monitor this msg pops up "It appears that your graphics driver does not support the necessary extensions to use this tool. Do you want to use your graphics driver vendor's tool instead?" and it tells me that it can not recognize monitor even though it did before I tried to install drivers.

Here is my xorg.conf file (I tried to add some lines to it so it might be little different. I still have original which does not work either).

Code:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder75) Fri Mar 12 01:42:27 PST 2010

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
EndSection

Section "Files"
EndSection .....

ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux driver download page at nvidia site.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Drivers Fail To Load After Upgrade To Karmic

Apr 17, 2010

Laptop with Nvidia integrated GO 6100. Now stuck in low graphics mode.

Uninstall/reinstall ENVY. No joy.

"Hardware Drivers" reports that Nvidia drivers version 173 are activated at the moment, but not in use. Got the same report from the 185s. 'nvidia-xconfig' produced no results.

Not sure where to go from here. Please assist.

On a positive note, my onboard Broadcom wireless is working without ndiswrapper.

Debian :: Can't Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Sep 15, 2010

I run into a problem when trying to update from lenny to squeeze. Seems that util-linux fails to install due to some error and that this causes xorg as well as udev to fail. If this is the case then it might be a bug in the post-installation script for util-linux..Am I on the right track or is it completely wrong?

Debian :: Lenny Squeeze Upgrade Not Completing

May 28, 2010

when I tried to upgrade my computer from Lenny to Squeeze and it downloaded everything but it's stuck at installing udev which it said it couldn't do on the 2.6.26 kernel. I then did update-grub and Squeeze's 2.6.32 kernel was seen (on grub). I have grub-legacy chainloading (if I'm not mistaken) but I don't have grub2 installed. When I try to boot through the 2.6.32 kernel so that I can complete the upgrade (that is to install udev and have everything working fine), instead of reaching the OS, it says something along the lines of "kernel panick not syncing vfs" and something about "root(hd1,0)".

Debian :: Fail To Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Jan 8, 2011

I'm currently using Debian Lenny 5.0.7 and I tryed to upgrade to Squeeze. I followed the instructions from Debian's Guide:

1. I changed my repositories to squeeze in sources.list
2. # aptitude update
3. # aptitude install apt aptitude dpkg
4. # aptitude safe-upgrade

After this last command, the computer kept working for about 7 hours, it consumed 2 gb RAM and 1 gb swap, and in the end aborted with the following message:

I searched around and I found out that this error is somehow related to C/C++ package compilation, but I found nothing specific related to Debian's upgrade.

Debian Installation :: Best Way To Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Feb 7, 2011

A week or so ago, I downloaded the current stable and burned it. (lenny)And on the 5th I started installing and finished on the 6th.I then see squeeze was released LOL.I have started using the system and would rather not start over from scratch.(but I will if it is the *best* way to go)I am coming from Ubuntu but I do know my way around the system...

All the threads I see start off by editing the sources list to change lenny to squeezeIs there an easier way?I've looked for a HOWTO but did not see one.I am not looking to stop any part of the system from upgrading.In ubuntu I have gone from distro to distro, but that option is not offered.I checked "Software Sources" -> Updates I do not see the Ubuntu option of allowing distro updates ot be offered.

Debian :: Lenny Freezed After Upgrade ALSA

Jun 18, 2010

I was upgrading manually my ALSA to the latest version -1.0.23-, so after reboot I got several errors related to ALSA telling me that NO SOUND CARDS Found. so the system is freezed when tries to connect to the network but after that, the system is stopped, nothing else happens, I tried to Ctrl+C and reboot as "single user mode" and still nothing, when I rebooted I can see a message that says: "busy trying to mount /" .So my questions are:

1. is there a way to log into the system?
2. is there a way to deactivate this driver on startup?
3. when I can login, how can I remove the failed alsa driver?

if this helps, I have another linux distro running in the same HDD, so maybe I can do something for debian for that distro

Debian :: Upgrade Lenny To Squeeze Without Disturbing Settings?

Sep 9, 2010

I have actually done quite a lot with Linux servers over the years. One thing I haven't ever done is upgrade one. At this time, however, it looks like my Lenny server must be upgraded to a newer MySQL, and I'm beginning to think it is easier to upgrade the entire installation.Is there a recommended way to upgrade Debian without disturbing home directories, non-standard directories such as /mystuff, config files such as my.cnf and smb.conf, etc?

Debian Installation :: Failed To Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Feb 3, 2010

I have tried several times--unscuccessfully-- to upgrade to the testing branch. I change my apt sources to "squeeze". I get either "err" or "ign" on a lot of the sources when updating. I have seen several methods as to how to upgrade from stable to testing and none have worked so far. I have tried "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade" as well as using aptitude to do the same similar commands. What I find is the following:

* My kernel never gets upgraded at all.

* udev is broken and mice and keyboard do not work.

* Many packages are held back and not upgraded.

I do have a debian 5 image to re-install and try again but I am not finding it to be as easy as many debian people claim. Also, I did a fresh install of squeeze using the net-install image. When the install finished and I rebooted, the computer hung on boot up. It never seemed to read where the kernel was. It would boot up, the system would beep and then reboot never finding the kernel or boot block apparently. how to get squeeze on my box? It is a 1.2 Ghz computer with 512mb ram with the intel i810 southbridge chipset I believe.

Debian Installation :: Upgrade To Lenny Breaks The Printer

Feb 11, 2010

I just upgraded to lenny (stable) from a working etch system. It went pretty nicely but I'm having a problem with the print system.

Ok, I have an HP Laserjet 4M+ connected to my system by USB. (I have another color printer too and a scanner but I don't use them often).

I use CUPS. I never bothered with the HPLIP packages because straight cups has always worked well.

What happens now is that I'll send a job to the printer and nothing will happen. The printer won't get it. Looking at CUPS on the localhost:631 page I can see that the printer is on, connected, ready; the job is there too but just stuck on "processing".

Now here's the thing. If I manually load the ehci_hcd module with "modprobe ehci_hcd" then the job will make it to the printer and it will print.

I can't just make that module load at boot time because if I do and the printer is off, it doesn't work. (I have to unload it and reload it). For whatever reason, I have to make sure that module gets loaded AFTER the printer is turned on, or nothing gets sent to the printer!
