Fedora Installation :: Nvidia Card Driver For T61?
Aug 10, 2009
I installed F11, before today, I used Ubuntu for a long time. my graphic card is nvs140m of nvidia. I download the card driver from [URL]. the vision of the driver is NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.29-pkg1.run. before I can install the driver, I must close the X-server. so, please tell me how to close the X-server.
The freeze's on my machine only appears when i monitor the temperature of the gpu. Normally i use gkrellm to monitor temperatures including the gpu temperature. When i stop gkrellm there a no more freeze's on my system. Then i started nvdock which also monitor the gpu temperature and the freeze's are back. Stopping nvdock make the system working normally. I have done a few reboots now, warm and also cold starts und everything works normal.
System data: AMD P2 X4 940, Nvidia GTS 250, openSUSE 11.3, Nvidiadriver 256.44, Gigabyte Mainboard GA-MA78G-DS3H rev.2,8GB RAM, KDE 4.4.95,
Only about 1.5 weeks into Linux guys so bear with me. I'm trying to uninstall the Nouveau driver and install NVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.14-pkg1.run for my old Nvidia TNT2 card. Following these directions I run into a problem in the first step. When I execute the Ctrl+Alt+F1 command and get:
Ubuntu 10.10 splat-desktop tty1 splat-desktop login: if I enter splat which I believe is my username and the correct p/w I get an incorrect login response.
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 have followed the Nvidia driver guide exactly. I did not see any errors during the four-step process. However, on the last reboot the system gets as far as the fedora "f" on the startup screen and hangs. This appears completely fatal. I have tried the procedure a couple of times now and the result has been to reinstall Fedora 14 from scratch each time. I have been able to access the system files after the crash using the system rescue option on the installation disk. I am on the Gnome X86_64 installation. My graphics card is NVIDIA GeForce GTS 240.
I need to install the nvidia driver on a PC that don't have any nvidia card in it.It's on a PXE server with read-only client's / . Those clients have nvidia cards.When this server had a nvidia card in it, i simply chrooted in the exported / , then i could install this driver.
I have installed F13 and after reading some Nvidia Driver installation guides I managed to blacklist nouveu driver. I run the 'init 3' command and it gave me an error something like 'nouveu driver still in use' then I reboot the system and the fonts were bigger than I run init 3 command again and this time installation was completed then I went back with init 5 command. I opened nvidia x server settings I have cloned the monitors and I installed the flash player,totem vs. Than F13 gave me the notification about updates and with yum update command It has downloaded and installed those updates. Then I shut the system off. When I restarted system it does not boot up. I see the loading bar and It hangs on at the end like forever. I have installed fedora again and the process I have done was same so the result.
I've followed leigh's installation instructions for the nVidia drivers on Fedora 14, and everything seemed to go smoothly, but I don't see any obvious changes after rebooting (should I?).When I go to KDE's KInfocenter (KMenu -> Applications -> System -> Info Center) and check the driver information I see this:
The nouveau driver coming with the free fedora does not even allow to run Gnome 3, so I'd like to install the Nvidia driver. So far I did not succeed as the nouveau kernel module is loaded at an early stage. How can I remove the nouveau driver?
After having some trouble with Intel graphics I decided to pick up a PCI Nvidia graphics card. Now I am wondering what driver to use. Is the open source drive good enough to use or should I install the Nvidia driver? I know that things are generally easier with the default driver, especially for support on older cards, but I would like to get the best performance I can. This is for my Dad's computer, so he won't be playing any games, but if it will help with 2D and video that would be great.
The card is an Geforce FX5200 fanless card, I've heard they are well supported in Linux.The computer is a P4 Dell 3000 with Ubuntu desktop 10.04 32bit.
Fedora (184.108.40.206-47.fc13.x86_64) I installed that update, during the installation process it said that it had to remove three packages, one of them was kmod nvidia for the old kernel (Fedora (220.127.116.11-149.fc13.x86_64))After the update finished installing the new kernel, I restarted the system and Nvidia did not load. (I assume because Update manager removed the old nvidia? But I also assumed that a new version would be installed automatically?)I received the following Boot messages:
Entering non-interactive startup Starting monitoring for VG vg_user1: 3 logical volume(s) in volume group "vg_user1" monitored
I'm confused, if Update Manager removed kmod nvidia, then why does yum say it is installed? And why doesn't the new kernel update work with that version? Or should I install a driver version for that particular kernel? I've read while searching that I need to install a kmod-nvidia for that particual kernel version and that I should login to my previous kernel until that happens, is that the problem I'm having?
Why don't rpmfusion and fedoraproject release the kmod-nvidia and kernel updates at the same time to avoid problems such as this? Does anyone know how long does it usually take for rpmfusion to release the new kmod-nvidia driver for the latest kernel?
After a few days of wrestling the xorg.conf file and the akmods/kmod apps, finally have it running properly with a dual display/one graphic card setup BUT only from init 3 and then startx. Trying with init 5 shows a segmentation fault right after recognizing the kmod driver but the sequence keeps running until it after it hits the anacron OK portion. This occurs with an NVIDIA 6800 XT which is covered by the 180.25 driver. Other forum Q&A suggests the wrong driver but NVIDIA recommends this one.
I just installed Fedora 11, and am trying to install my video card drivers. I have an Nvidia geforce gtx 260m. So far I have installed both the kmod-nvidia and akmod-nvidia packages, and I still cannot enable desktop effects. After i installed the akmod package, I sometimes see the nvidia logo for a split second when I log out, but my drivers are still not correctly installed.
I am a newbie to linux and having a hard time installing drivers for my card (gtx 260). I'm following this guide: [URL]. So do you edit the grub.conf file in etc first and then do the yum install kmod-nvidia? I've gone through this a few times, and each time when I think I've followed the steps and reboot, I get nothing. A blinking white cursor once and then a bunch of texts saying failure to mount and sleeping forever another time.
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.
I just installed Fedora 10 on a brand new machine with an on-board nvidia MCP73 ethernet card. Now, when I initially boot up the box after installation, the card comes up and gets a DHCP address just fine. When I go to edit the network settings (change to static) the NIC dies. I don't think I have the proper driver. Does anyone know a) where to get the driver and b) how I can install it?
I have a video card. But I cannnot install nvidia driver because of some errors.
My video card's info is GeForce GTX760 1.5GB GDDR5. Code: Select all$nvidia-detect Detected NVIDIA GPUs: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : NVIDIA Corporation Device [10de:118e] (rev a1) Uh oh. Your card is not supported by any driver version up to 304.125. A newer driver may add support for your card. Newer driver releases may be available in backports.
Many people are having trouble with the latest nvidia drivers. I think there might be a pattern and that might lead to a solution; even if that solution is "give up with that card you're using." So, here's the first:
I tried to install the NVIDIA graphic card drivers on my laptop XPS 1340, running with opensuse 11.2. There are two graphic cards, the integrated one and the NVIDIA one. I installed the drivers correctly by doing
wget ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...90.36-pkg2.run su -c 'sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.36-pkg2.run -q' but when trying to configure the x-server su -c 'sax2 -r -m0=nvidia'
I got the following error message in the /var/log/SaX.log NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidia0 (Input/output error).
My 4 yr old Dell XPS 400 has a nVidia GeForce 7300 LE card which won't run Unity as is. How do I determine without actually attempting to install 11.04 if there is an updated driver available that will allow this machine to run Unity?
I've been trying to install the latest NVIDIA driver for my 7800GS card. dl the driver from NVIDIA. ctrl+alt+F1. stop gdm3, after I hit agree I get an error. The CC version check failed: The compiler used to compile the kernel (gcc4.3) dows not match the current compiler (gcc4.4). The Linux 2.6 kernel module loader rejects kernel module built with a..
I can't figure out how to install the nvidia drivers for my nvidia 8800 GT video card. I've followed some other posts and all the posts seemed either incomplete, or led me down a path of which eventually broke my installation, that I needed to reinstall the entire ubuntu system.Again, it may not have been broken, i just didnt know how to get back in to the gui version of ubuntu, the instructions took me to the console terminal
1.) I've installed the ubuntu 10.10 64bit for i386 in an oracle virtualBox..
2.) downloaded from nvidia.com "NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.44.run"
Just installed a Sparkle GeForce 8400 GS on my Dell Dimension 2350 running FC9. As stated, every time the system goes to start the card, a stack trace occurs. I know the first thing that everyone will ask for is the output from the stack trace, but for the life of me I can't capture it. Tried grabbing the STDOUT and SDTERR from the 'service start' command, but nothing interesting is ever there. If anyone knows if and where such things get stored, just letting me know that would help. I assumed there would be something in /var/log, but no. For some reason, there's a lot of python errors in the output. I imagine I could try to type in as much of the output as possible, but I'm hoping someone has seen this before.
Anyway, I've tried the Nvidia install executable, the nvidia-newest RPMs, the nvidia-96xx RPMs and they all fail the same way. I also can't get the card to come up as the primary device on boot, which I don't think should be a problem since they all boot into VGA mode, don't they? If I disable the internal video setup in the BIOS, the machine freezes on bootup with blinking lights on the keyboard, which I imagine is the BIOS's way of telling me there's no monitor available.
I also tried getting the nv and nouveau drivers going with no luck. They are installed on the machine, but I'm embarrassed to say I don't know how to get them configured. Not really a driver guy, I guess. Also, the reason I installed this card is to get TVOUT, and I don't know if generic drivers will have support for that sort of thing.
At this point, I'm just looking for a way forward. One thing I remember is that when I removed the 'fglrx' drivers (because they conflicted with the NVIDIA stuff) I remember that a few python/fglrx based packages went with it. I'm wondering if that could be at the root of the failure, given the python errors in the stack trace.
I am using fedora10 in my notebook. I installed nvidia-graphics driver as follows.
su -c 'rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ble.noarch.rpm' su -c 'rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...ble.noarch.rpm' su -c 'rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-*'
Then i installed kmod-nvidia with yum su -c 'yum install kmod-nvidia' When i tried to open NVIDIA control panel, i got a message that nvidia-driver should be configured. Then i issued the following command as root. nvidia-xconfig. The i rebooted the system. Now in the boot menu, i see two kernel informations as follows
If i boot my linux with first one, x windows starts, if i boot with the second one (previously default), the x-windows is not opening. Why this happens? So i booted my system with first option in the boot menu. The system booted and x.windows started but i am not able to use any software that uses opengl window. The glxinfo command gives me the following error.
I am a new user of Fedora 11. I am a Ubuntu user and could not get my GeForce 9100 on board graphics to work on my new computer with out crashing my computer so I decided I would try fedora. I downloaded the driver from NVidia and I am attempting to install it (Fedora didn't automatically find the driver). I get the following message: "Error Unable to find the system utility 'ld'; Please make sure you have the 'binutils' installed. If you do have the bin utils installed, then please check that 'ld' is in your PATH." I am running the driver from $Download as root. I don't know what ld or bin utils is or the check if I have it or if it is in my PATH.
