Hardware :: NVIDIA 8800 GTS - Dual Boot Fedora 10 Does Not See The NVIDIA Driver

Feb 5, 2009

I am experiencing the following issue. After enabling SLI and PhysX in windows vista, my dual boot fedora 10 does not see the NVIDIA driver.

Doing: cat /proc/drivers/nvidia/0 I get? in the VGA bios for both cards.

I disabled both SLI and PhysX in vista, but the problem persists. I powerdown and unplugged the rig for several hours without results.

Here are my specs:

CPU: Intel Q9300
Board: MSI P7N Diamond
CARD0: EVGA Gforce 8800 GTS
CARD1: EVGA Gforce 8800 GTS
RAM : 4 Gbytes OCZ gold PC6400 (4 x 1 Gbytes)
PSU : Thermaltake SLI ready 850 W

It is important to mention that initially Fedora did see the cards and I was able to set up a dual monitor system. It right was after I enable SLI and PhysX and re-booting into Linux that the problem showed up.

I have seen this issue before in another machine with an ASUS board, but not until today I associated with the SLI setup. My guess is that there has to be something that the driver is enabling in the cards that messes up the interface between the nvidia.ko module and the kernel, but I don't know what may fix it. I need this system for some numerical calculations.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Install Nvidia Drivers For Nvidia 8800 GT Video Card

Apr 3, 2011

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"

3.) Stuck don't know what to do.

Fedora Hardware :: Install Nvidia Drivers For 8800 Card?

Jul 8, 2010

A few years back I gave linux a try. It was fun but eventually I dropped it because simple tasks like installing software were always a practice in goose hunting and copy/paste command marathons. I am trying again to get fedora up and going. Thinking many of the old methods would be cleaned up by now. I was trying to install nvidia drivers for my 8800 card.

I download the *.run file and it tells me I need to disable "X...etc" so I init 3 to the command prompt and run the *.run file there. Then the installer says.... "hey buddy.. you need gcc to make this work". ok.. I type init 5 to get back to the internet browser. So I search about google for a few moments and then find the yum command for getting gcc installed. Run the gcc and again... init 3 to get back to the command prompt and run the *.rn file for the nvidia drivers. This time the installer says... "hey man... you need the kernel source tree".

Fedora :: NVIDIA Bin Driver - Gnome3 - Dual Monitor ?

May 25, 2011

I have recently installed FC15 on my system. Dual monitor support seems to be broken with my setup. I am using the latest NVIDIA binary blob driver (270.41.19). I compiled my own kernel for it, version 2.6.39.

When gnome3 starts it almost manages to boot up, but then it crashes and gives me the option of logging out. I have my system booting into target 'multi-user.target' since I was doing some other stuff and I use `startx' to start gnome3. I tried running having X use xinerama and not use xinerama, both cause gnome3 to crash, albeit in different ways. Other than that I am running a stock install as far as I know.

If there are some logs I should be looking at for gnome3.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Recommended Replacement For NVIDIA 8800 GT?

Jun 30, 2011

my PNY NVIDIA 8800 GT just stopped working yesterday before i buy a new grapic card, id like to hear your opinion on which one to buy. basically i want a high end card. google search with keywords like "high end card linux" did only give me cards for around 2008. id like it if there is a newer card, however i am open to buy an equivalent of my NVIDIA 8800 GT.

my requirements in order: at least as good performance as the NVIDIA 8800 GT good and reliable driver with 3d support gnome2/KDE4 with compiz and good performance maximum price of 150,00

low heat
low sound
open source driver
directx11 and opengl 3.3
possibility of 2 monitors
possibility of 3 monitors

i believe in open source, but in this case its just got to work with high performance 3d. on linux i play SPRINGRTS which worked on 1920*1080 like a charm. on windows - which is not a big part of this - i like to try out new games (thus dx11).

other hardware:

Intel E8400
MSI P35 Neo3
4 GB DDR2 Ram
400 W power supply unit

however i never had big problems with NVIDIA before, so im probably gonna stick with NVIDIA, but im open to new stuff! not all of these requirements must be met. as for now, id go with one of these cards (links in german):

Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 OC
Nvidia Geforce 9600GT * 1GB * 1024MB DDR3 * 9600 GT * PCI-Express
AXLE nVidia GeForce GTS250 1024 MB Grafikkarte (PCI-e, 1GB DDR3 Speicher, 128-bit GTS 250 Windows 7 DVI, VGA, HDMI)

and my old one again:

Nvidia Geforce 8800GT * 512MB * PCI-E * (8800 GT) * HDMI Output * DVI * VGA *

Ubuntu Installation :: What Are Best Drivers For Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS

Oct 20, 2010

What are the best drivers for Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS. I'm not 100% sure, but I heard the newest drivers have buggs and aren't 100% compatible with 10.10. I was wondering what the best version of Nvidia drivers would be to install on 10.10? apt-get install?

Fedora :: Nvidia Driver Segmentation Fault At Boot?

Aug 12, 2010

Fedora 13-64. While booting the nvidia driver has a segmentation fault:

Code:
Enabling the nvidia driver: /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions: line 530: 1406 Segmentation fault "$@"[FAILED] It is not a problem when using the notebook's led/mouse/keyboard. The problem is when I'm using an external monitor/mouse/keyboard. In this case I must first boot using the notebook until it gets to the login screen when I can start using the external configuration. That is annoying because the notebook seats under the table and must be put over the table to boot. The notebook model is HP DV6 2173 CL with a discrete GeForce G105M

My other notebook running Ubuntu works exactly as needed. The whole boot process is shown and controlled by the external monitor/mouse/keyboard.

Fedora Hardware :: F13 Cannot Boot After NVidia Driver Installation

Aug 25, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVidia G92 - GeForce 8800 GT Graphics Card Is Not Fully Functioning

Jan 25, 2010

I already posted this message on another thread but I'd like to start a new thread with it now, and add a few more details. My son and I are having trouble getting the graphics card to work properly in his computer. The resolution is good, but the graphics card is not fully functioning. He works on animation and graphics of several kinds, and the graphics programs cannot run without a fully functioning graphics card.

The computer will not run Blender and other graphics programs. Nor will it even allow for the "normal" "Visual Effects" in the "Appearance Preferences." (It comes up with the error: "Desktop effects could not be enabled," after it tries to find the driver.) The system is:

Graphics Card: nVidia G92, GeForce 8800 GT
System: Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic, 2.6.31-17-generic, 4.4.1 (x86_64-linux-gnu)
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ (3 Gigs RAM)

We know the graphics card works because it works in Windows. (We set up the computer to boot off of either of two hard drives -- either in Windows XP or Ubuntu 9.10, karmic.) Neither my son nor I understand much of the terminology on your forums, although I have been using Ubuntu for some years and have read quite a bit. (I also have the "Beginning Ubuntu Linux" book.) I love Ubuntu, but sometimes I just cannot figure out how to get some things running. We have tried many different ways of installing the drivers and setting up the xorg.conf file. We have followed the instructions on this and other threads. We also installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86-64-190.53-pkg2.run, as well as 173 and 185. The screen will only work at a proper resolution when we set the "Driver" to "nv" in the xorg.conf file. The screen goes completely blank and dead if we set the "Driver" to "nvidia." Then we need to reboot in safe mode and edit the xorg.conf file with VIM.

Fedora Installation :: FC11 X64 Dell T5400 Dual Nvidia Quadro FX 1700 Fails To Graphically Boot

Sep 4, 2009

I'm running into this issue after installing Fedora Core 11 off DVD. Anaconda install the first part of the installation, then after reboot it goes into run level 3 (I think, where you have to login as root) I noticed that it said xserver failed to load before it actually boots Anaconda.

Maybe I should pull a graphic's card? I have logged in as root after the base install and did a lspci, and you can see the two Nvidia Quadro FX1700's and you can tell it is an intel board with the Intel Corp 6311ESB/6321ESB PCI Express ports. Also you can navigate through the linux directories via ls \. I tried YUM to find/install the graphics drivers but it says something about metadata not being configured. I checked the IP address with ifconfig and had to manually assign an ip.

Ubuntu :: Can't Boot After NVidia Driver Update

Oct 14, 2010

I'm in the live CD right now trying to figure out what to do. When I first got into Ubuntu, it asked me to install nVidia drivers, so I did. Afterwards, it said I needed to restart my computer to finish installation, but when upon getting past the bootloader, my screen hangs on "Assuming drive cache: write through". I found this post: [URL] but the terminal commands didn't help and I can't find /etc/xorg.cfg even if I show hidden files. I've added a picture of the screen I get when I try to boot up, so maybe someone can tell me what to do to get back into Ubuntu. I would like to be able to get back without having to reinstall, if possible.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot After Nvidia Driver Install?

Mar 4, 2010

This is my first day with Umbuntu and my first post here at the forums. I bought a Dell Pentium 4 with a fresh install of Umbuntu 9.10 on it. Worked well until I decided to do something a newbie shouldn't do and install a graphics card and drivers. The graphics card worked just fine until the drivers were installed and I tried to reboot the system. Now it no longer boots. Some specifics for you.

Since my time with Ubuntu is limited to hours, the nomenclature will probably be wrong. But I will try to get the point across. The card is a EVGA GeForce FX 5700 Ultra. On first start up with this card the computer functioned fine. I went to a place where you could change the screen options. There were three selections and I don't remember the names (idiot that I am). I selected the middle one. The OS stated that in order to utilize all the capabilities of nvidia graphics cards blah, blah, blah, a driver would need to be downloaded and activated. No name, just a driver. OK, do it (sounds kinda windows like). The download seemed to go OK, but now I needed to reboot to activate the driver.

Now: Ubuntu logo comes up. Screen goes to a text screen that says:

Ubuntu 9.10 dave-ubuntu tty1
dave-ubuntu login:

This screen flashes and does not take input from the keyboard or mouse. Next, I removed the graphics card and used the on-board graphics. Same result with faster flashing. What have I done? Apparently Ubuntu and Linux in general don't have a system recovery option? I read something about the GRUB menu, but the system flasher GRUB loading for half a second and then is on to locking up. I can't seem to get to a GRUB menu. What a way to finish the day.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Loading NVIDIA Driver With Live CD Boot?

Mar 15, 2010

I bought a new NVIDIA GeForce 6600GT video card for this PC recently and now whenever I boot Ubuntu 9.10 Live I can't change the screen resolution from 640 X 480. I get this message to the effect that the driver is restricted and not free software. When I try to download it and use it it says I can only activate it after a reboot, but I guess it means after rebooting an installation of Ubuntu, not the live cd since it never takes.

Ubuntu recommends NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver 185, so I went to NVIDIA's web site and downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.36-pkg1.run (and NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53-pkg1.run since I think it's the newest, at least when I enter GeForce 6 Series and Linux 32-bit in the driver download search it's what comes up). I noticed that at the beginning menu of the Ubuntu 9.10 Live cd, when you press F4, the option to load from a driver disk is there. I was hoping this means I could just put one or both of the above files on a cd, insert it into the other disk drive and select that option.
