Fedora Installation :: Nvidia Graphics Driver - Error: GlXCreateContext Failed

May 8, 2009

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

Fedora (2.6.27.21-170.2.56.fc10.i686)
Fedora (2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686.PAE)

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: NVIDIA Graphics Driver - Graphics Mode Option Via The Start (GRUB)?

Jan 26, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu (9.10) and noted that in order to successfully run the trial off the CD I had to test in "safe graphics" mode. I have an NVIDIA GEforce 6600 GT card - which was discovered by Ubuntu in the first few minutes of the trial and so I activated the recommended driver and continued to test. After a successful trial I installed Ubuntu (dual partition Ubuntu / Windows XP), however, it seems the install didn't activate the required driver (as part of the process) and so I'm unable to get into my newly-installed Ubuntu at all. All I get is a flashing tty screen asking for my username and password - however it's erratic and won't recognise what I type. So - I'm stuck in a catch-22 as there doesn't seems to be a safe graphics mode option via the start (GRUB?) menu list.

Debian Configuration :: Installing Nvidia Graphics Card - Driver Error

Apr 28, 2010

I revived my old desktop (failed psu), and installed debian squeeze using netinst. It has a nvidia geForce 7600GT card. The driver in squeeze does not work very well, so I downloaded nvidia driver-installer. When I run it, it comes back with an error saying the kernel (I assume the nvidia graphics kernel) is compiled with gcc4.3, but the system is using gcc4.4. Using synaptic manager, I installed gcc3.3, but same error.

Next I tried to uninstall gcc4.4 and it gave a warning the system might not be usable. I did not understand it, but I went ahead and uninstalled gcc4.4 and guess what, the system is not usable, and I have to re-install squeeze. Not a big loss, since I do not have much in it. How to install this nvidia driver, specifically, how do I get switch to gcc4.3 from gcc4.3? Also, the squeeze install gave me 2.6.33-trunk-amd64, and 2.6.33-3-amd64. How do I get rid of ...trunk-amd64? Do I just delete it from grub?

Fedora Hardware :: F15 Failed To Update Nvidia Driver From 270 To 275

Jun 21, 2011

Lately I tried to update my nvidia drivers from RPFMFusion repos. There was a new version 275 available, so I installed it. After a reboot I would repeatedly see the Nviia Logo followed by black followed by a glimpse at the CLI with some error message. This process continues over and over again and it is so fast that the only thing I could make out from the error message is the following:

at-spi-bus-laun[some-number] segfault at 980 ...
in libx11.so.6.3.0 ...

I tried completely removing the driver then updating my system (there were no updates) then booting with nouveau to see that that actually works. Then I tried reinstalling the nvidia driver following leigh's guide [URL]. Same error.

This is where I'm stuck at the moment. Booting to runlevel 3 I had a look into the messages and Xorg.0.log, but I didn't see anything. Maybe I can get the log files uploaded.
I will boot from live media and provide them later on.

Hardware specs:

Samsung P480
Intel corei3 330
nvidia GT330M 1024mb
8gb Ram
120gb SSD OZC Vertex 2 with /tmp mounted as tmpfs

Software specs:

Using F15 x64
kernel 2.6.38.8-32 (from the top of my head, please don't shoot me)
added repos:
RPMFusion
adobe (flash)
playonlinux

There is one addition I can make. Before, when I was using the 270 driver, I tried playing some games via wine and that also segfaulted on me (most of the time - 1 worked), so I think there is a general issue with the nvidia drivers on my system. But back then It was only wine, not X.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Which Driver For Nvidia Graphics Card?

Jun 6, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Installing Nvidia Graphics Driver On 10.04?

Oct 3, 2010

I am having problems installing the graphics driver (from the Nvidia website) for my Nvidia Vanta card on Ubuntu 10.04. I disabled X via terminal and then I ran a Virtual Console. With the virtual console I ran the chmod command and the went through the installation. It did bring up a message with something about my distro not having a pre-configured script (or something like that) and asked me if I would like to continue anyway. I choose Yes and the installation failed.

Fedora Hardware :: Nvidia Graphics GT 325M Installation Fail

Each lists my card as being supported but each time the install fails and I have to Alt - Kitaral - f2 to get to the command line log in.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Get Nvidia Graphics Driver To Work / Resolve This?

Apr 13, 2010

I made the mistake of trying to install an nvidia graphics driver from the download.nvidia.com/opensuse11.2 repository. My card is a PCI quadro nvs 295 so looks like it should be supported. The installation and update of the kernel seemed to be successful, but for some reason sax2 doesn't seem to recognise the nvidia card, even when I run "sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia" and I'm stuck with the VESA framebuffer graphics default in /etc/X11/xorg.conf code...

I've found tons of threads on this kind of thing but I only seem to be making things worse trying to fix it. If anyone can give me a hint and fix my pathetic-looking desktop I'd be very grateful!!! At the moment nothing that uses opengl will work either

Fedora :: Freeze On Boot After Attempted Proprietary Graphics Driver Installation?

Jun 21, 2011

I'm still trying to learn the ropes on linux as a whole and I've run into sort of a huge dilema. I wanted to connect my laptop to my TV via VGA. However, it would not work because I didn't have the proprietary graphics driver for my graphics card (Nvidia Quadro NVS 3100M). I searched the internet and found the guide below because the guide provided here did not specify Quadro family graphics cards[URL]I followed the "easy method" to the T. Now I cannot boot into Fedora 15 at all (I'm stuck on bloody Windows 7 again ). It simply freezes at the boot animation (the "F" in the bubble). What can I do to fix this

Fedora :: F14 NVidia Driver Installation Failure

Nov 9, 2010

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 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.
