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.

Fedora Hardware :: How To Install Old Version Of NVidia Drivers From RPMfusion

Nov 5, 2010

The actual nvidia driver version (260.1912) does not work for my laptop (a Sony Vaio F11 series type, see bottom of page [URL]), I would like to install an older version (e.g. 256.53). Up to now, I cannot figure out how to tell yum to pick up an older version. Is there a way to do this (because kmod-nvidia is a meta package, there may be problems?), or do I have to install 256.53 manually (using the installer provided by nvidia)?

Fedora :: Rpmfusion Nvidia Driver Results In Unusable Display?

Feb 14, 2010

I would prefer to be able to use the rpmfusion nvidia driver instead of the closed driver but when I try it, KDE4 runs fine for a while but then the whole display starts blinking and the cpu % goes to 99% for XMy PC is Fedora 12 x86_64, the video card is a XFX 8800GT[URL]1) installed the kmod-nvidia-190.53-1.fc12.1.x86_64 and dependencies2) blocked nouveau with rdblacklist=nouveau in grub.conf, 3) Ran: setsebool -P allow_execstack on4) fixed the xorg.conf (I had to move my old xorg.conf out of the way and merged my DontZap option back in)
5) rebootedI did not yum remove the nouveau driver,.... didn't seem necessary.My desktop will run for a while but inevitably starts flashing uncontrollably. I can't even ssh to it to run init 3 to kill X (I can ssh to it but for some reason I can't su to root to kill X).

Fedora Installation :: Completely Remove RPMfusion Nvidia Driver?

Aug 14, 2010

The driver has crashed X and before I had a chance to find RPMfusion instructions on dealing with initrd, I removed the package just to keep X running.Uninstalling the package does not restore kernel and Xorg operation. I am still in VESA mode.Although they claim they don't put stuff in non-standard places and use RPM, still there is something left over, as nuoveau driver no longer loads.Now that system configuration is all over the place, it is not clear what they actually changed or replaced.

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] (**) 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

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

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Drivers Not Working Right On 10.04

Dec 5, 2010

I just did what i did below reinstalled them and seems to be working again. I installed the drivers then updated my ubuntu install (fresh install) which i read in another thread that if something updates the kernel or whatever it seems to below out your nvidia install on 10.04 and 10.10 i think if i remember right.

Ok so i haven't been using ubuntu in a very long time. Seen 10.04 lts came out and decided to wander back (xp is just getting to old and seems to be getting more and more sluggish everytime i upgrade to newer and newer hardware lol think no one is really supporting it anymore or barely and i'm to dam cheap to buy 7 lol)

anyway so i downloaded the newest geforce drivers from nvidia.

I followed instructions i had seen on here can't find the thread now.

anyway I shut down nouveau or whatever its called.

Then i did a alt+ctrl+F1

cd Desktop

tried using sudo service gdm stop but it don't work so i did sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop that worked but recommends the way that won't work above lol least for me.

Then i had the nvidia driver on my desktop so i did sudo sh N (then tab) enter. it started the driver up said it could not install the application or something i forget eh i'll find out but asked if i would like to continue. I said yes and installed the driver everything seems somewhat ok after that then i restart my machine and bam says i'm in low graphics mode now, and my x-server for nvidia don't have any options in it at all to modify anything....

I'm using NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.21.run Nvidia driver i have should i try the older one? if i can find it 250 something i think it was?

Just curious if there is another method i can try to get a driver in. I don't like using old drivers i tend to like the hot new stuff either beta or latest solid release.

Ubuntu :: Nvidia GTX 460 Drivers In 10.10 Not Working?

Jan 18, 2011

I just upgraded to 10.10 from 10.04. I used to have a manual install of the nvidia drivers configured (by downloading binary from Nvidia website) but right before I upgraded I used nvidia-uninstall to remove it. Upon rebooting into 10.10 I went to Additional drivers and activated nvidia-current. After I rebooted I still had no driver, so I looked in the Additional Drivers pane again. It says Nvidia-current is activated but not currently in use. Then I went to a terminal and typed:

sudo nvidia-xconfig. Thinking it would reconfigure X to work with my 460, however it instead said: command not found What's going on here?

Fedora :: Uninstall Nvidia Drivers (kmod-nvidia)?

Ubuntu Installation :: NVIDIA Drivers Not Working After 11.04 Update?

Apr 28, 2011

Tonight I upgraded to 11.04. Once I had finished the upgrade, I restarted my computer as it told me too. When I got past the ubuntu 11.04 (purple background orange dots), it simply went to the terminal and asked me to log in. I tried to restart the X server with "sudo service gdm restart" but no display popped up. I happened to have a few NVIDIA drivers in my downloads file also so I gave these a try, but the "install script" failed.

After all this I booted Ubuntu in graphic failsafe mode. I then decided to see what would happen if I removed the proprietary driver. Upon doing this and rebooting my Ubuntu booted into graphical mode "yay!".So without the Nvidia drivers I can finally see something other than terminal, but, I need those NVIDIA drivers for my work. So what can I do? I have tried installing the new NVIDIA linux drivers from the NVIDIA website,and have tried Installing the recommended driver via "additional drivers", but both have resulted in my being stuck in terminal.

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Drivers Not Working In 9.10 On An Asus Ul80vt Laptop

Mar 7, 2010

I have an Asus UL80vt laptop. This laptop has an integrated (Intel) as well as a discrete (Nvidia 210m) graphics card.

I want to use the nvidia proprietary drivers because from what I understand, it's the easiest way to set up dual monitors (I have an external monitor). I installed the latest nvidia driver: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53. When I try to run the NVidia X Server Settings GUI, it tells me that "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 checked out my xorg.conf and changed the device driver to 'nvidia' instead of 'nv'. Curiously, when I run nvidia-xconfig, it changes the intel device to 'nvidia' which is a problem. So i skipped running that and just stuck with my xorg.conf. When I run startx, I get a message saying "failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device PCI:1:0:0".

I've combed through multiple forums which state different kinds of solutions and I've tried different kernel options such as 'vmalloc=512m' or 'noapic' to no avail.

P.S. I've attached my xorg.conf file

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Sound Not Working With NVidia ION Drivers

Jun 4, 2010

I have a zotac IONITX motherboard with HDMI video. The video seems fine, but I haven't been able to get the sound working through the HDMI cable. Even the little speaker at the top is gone. It was working fine when I had speakers hooked to the motherboard. I have installed the latest 256 driver from nvidia. If I run 'aplay -l' I get this:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: NVIDIA HDMI [NVIDIA HDMI]
Subdevices: 1/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
lspci -v gives :
00:08.0 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP79 High Definition Audio (rev b1) Subsystem: PC Partner Limited Device 437b
Flags: bus master, 66MHz, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 22
Memory at fae78000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: Kernel driver in use: HDA Intel
Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel

I don't know if this is important, but I noticed that it says its running an intel driver for my nvidia sound. Could this be the problem and if so, How do I fix it? Also, if I click on system->preferences->sound it comes up with a dialog box that says that its waiting for the sound system to come up. Why I am not getting any HDMI sound or even the little speaker icon at the top?

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

CPU: Dual core Intel Core2 Duo E7500 (SMP) cache 3072 KB flags (sse3 nx lm vmx) bmips 11703.9


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.

Fedora :: Slow KDE Menu After NVidia Install?

I just install Fedora 12 x86_64 from the Live CD. KDE and all was just fine until I installed the nVidia drivers. Now when I click on the menu launcher on the bottom-left corner of the panel, the menu takes around ten seconds to come up. I can make do with the Application Launcher widget, but it's a little annoying since it's up all the time. Everything else seems fine.

Fedora :: After Last Update Nvidia Drivers Crashed

Mar 13, 2009

I updated fedora 10 a few days ago, by blindly installing every update available, and when i restarted, my nvidia drivers weren't loading, and I'm having an issue I had before, where the signal being sent to the monitor is out of frequency range. Basically when fedora tries to load its GUI, my monitor just goes blank. Before I could only fix it by plugging in a different (less tempermental) monitor, and messing around with the display driver.

I was wondering if there is a way to mess with the drivers from the command line. I really don't like switching out monitors, and i want to learn the skillz and such.

Fedora :: Using RPM Nvidia Drivers Or Building Them By Hand?

Aug 6, 2009

For a new project at work, I'm looking into building a processing farm of a few dozen Tesla 1U servers from Nvidia. This has lead us on to figure a way to let the developers run tests on their own workstations (with the appropriate gfx card).The cards we're looking at are Quadro FX 1800 or 3800's to provide quite a bit of poke.

Thing is, I'm having issues with running any Cuda code successfully on systems installed with the pre-built nvidia drivers from RPMFusion. I can only get code running if I download the nvidia or cuda drivers from nvidia and install by hand. Not something I'd like to be maintaining across all out developer workstations. Is anyone out there running Cuda on Fedora/RHEL5 platform? If so, are you using RPM nvidia drivers or building them by hand?
