I would like to use Nouveau rather than NVidia proprietary drivers. I am very experienced with Linux but a bit clueless with monitors. I got rather close to a working setup, but just can't get the resolution and maybe H/V sync frequency of my monitor correct.
OpenSUSE 11.4 32-bit Gforce 7300 KDE desktop Acer 21" LCD monitor, non-wide screen, it can do 1600x1200
X configuration: No x.org.conf file, and only one modified file in xorg.conf.d, namely to specify the driver "nouveau" (by the way, is that even needed??) According to lsmod, nouveau loads perfectly. However, KDE starts-up in an odd, non-useful screen resolution. 3d works, slowly, which is OK. I specifically want 1024x768 resolution, but am not able to specify a different resolution in the Display configuration section of the KDE control center (I understand that is perhaps normal).
I tried inserting text into the xorg.conf.d/50-monitor, not really knowing what to add or where and eventually got 1024x768 but the display was unstable, blinking off and on every so-often, and the screen edges were off.I am pretty sure I simply need to put information about my monitor and desired resolution into some file(s) in xorg.conf.d/ or maybe build a dreaded xorg.conf file. I know of the "cvt" utility, and I have a hunch this is part of the solution.
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.
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 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"
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 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.
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?
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.

I'm a new user of fedora12 and I'm a beginer in Linux, I'll apreciate if someone tell me how to install a driver for my video card (nvidia 9400GT) because when I try desktop effect fedora disply an error "require hardware 3D support" and that tell's me I don't have the appropriate driver.
I am attempting to make a video machine only... which mean I have a Compaq 6435cl and I have installed the latest verion of ubuntu on it. All I want this machine to do is play video from off the net on my LCD HD TV. The video on board was all choppy when going into full screen mode so I put in a 3dfx Voodoo card and the same thing happens. I cannot figure out how to install the drivers for this card in ubuntu so I was wondering if I should by a new video card. Do you have a recomended video card for ubuntu that would push HD video?
I just got done installing Ubuntu on a new harddrive and set it up to dual boot with grub loader. However, when I boot into Ubuntu, the screen goes black. I can however login (blind) by hitting enter and typing password. The login sound goes and it logs in, however, the screen stays black. I am running a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 295 Video Card.
I used commands below to install the driver,but when i executed the last command,it always outputted "no adapter detected",why? video cards ATI HD5650 was indeed insert correctly.Then i restart.unfortunately,i can't come into system.the screen was always flickering.I can't do anything but reinstall Ubuntu.Who can tell me why? thanks (my Ubuntu was installed in VMware workstation)here is commands i used:1.sudo apt-get install build-essential cdbs fakeroot dh-make debhelper debconf libstdc++6 dkms libqtgui4
Using the video card Nvidia 7800GT on an AMD4200, MB T6100, I am unable to install from the iso, as progression is halted by a video mode that is unviewable. (black and white rows). I can get to the "f6" menu, however once I attempt an install it fails. My main goal is to install Mythbuntu, however the problem seems to be with the Unbuntu install drivers.This post worked to get around this on version 6.10, however these instructions no longer work. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=379807
Is there any way to use the newest Nvidia drivers that should work from a new install CD? I do not see a command line option, which would seem to allow me to install and update and setup the distro, THEN add my drivers before I run xconf.
I have spent ages looking at similar problems but not not quite the same. I have installed 11.4/Gnome (x86) and wanted to use my GT430 card. I went here: 'http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_drivers' and used the 'one click' install for current cards. All went ok until I rebooted and I got a 'gdm: WARNING: GdmDisplay: display lasted 0.846578 seconds' message. I got five of these in succession until the 'gdm: WARNING: GdmLocalDisplayFactory: maximum number of X display failures reached: check X server log for errors' appeared and it popped me down to an init 3 login.
So, I deleted the blacklisting conf file so that I could get back in to Gnome on Nouveau (which I did ok). I then noticed there was no /etc/X11 Xorg.conf file so I ran /usr/lib/nvidia-xconfig to generate one (which it did) - but it made no difference. I am at a loss know after spending 8 hours on this. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. My machine is still at fresh install state so even if I have to reinstall 11.4 it does not matter.
I'm trying to install the driver for my ATI Radeon X1600 Series video card. I got the driver from the ATI site. Heres the link: [URL]... I'm using 10.04 LTS. I have attached a screenshot of the message I get when I run the installer.
I have an old video card, Nvidia XFX 7800GT, which is now beginning to fail and I need to upgrade. I am not huge a gamer but I do play/buy games on regular basis. Right now I'm playing Eternal Lands on the Linux side. Looking to spend $100-$150 on a new card.I have a Core2Duo Wolfdale 3.0, with 2ghz ram and run Lucid 32bit. Also run windows Vista64Ultimate on dual boot (rarely).
I would love to buy a new ATI 5770 or 5830, ATI budget cards seem to be much better for the buck over budget Nvidia cards, but I'm concerned with ATI drivers and long term with Ubuntu.On the Nvidia side I'm considering the GTS 250. The only advantage I can find is lower power consumption with Nvidia and Ubuntu has always preferred Nvidia over ATI, as far as working drivers go.As Far as Ubuntu and Lucid is concerned, which way is best, ATI or Nvidia? Has anything changed with ATI support, that could make theor cards more compatible now and in the future?
I have installed Open Suse 11.1 on two different machines. One contains an ATI X850 video card, and the other contains an ATI X1950 video card. I updated the ATI drivers on the 850 card and it works like a dream. I updated the ATI drivers on the 1950 card and Suse becomes unusable. System works fine before the update. Before the update I ran it at a resolution of 1280 x 1024. I thought I would lower it to 1024 x 768 to see if that would help, but it does not. I dual boot with WinXP, and card works fine with that setup at 1280 x 1024, so I would suspect this is a specific problem with my Suse setup as opposed to a Motherboard issue.
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.
