Debian Multimedia :: Run The 2.6.32-5-686 Kernel On Squeeze And The Bad Nvidia Drivers?

Oct 31, 2010

I run the 2.6.32-5-686 kernel on Squeeze and the bad nvidia drivers. A recent update, and pardon for not noting which, broke 3d games on my box.

From a terminal neverputt yields the following error:

ignatius@lapbox 14:56 [ ~ ]:$ neverputt
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 137 (NV-GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 4 ()
Resource id in failed request: 0x2600013

[Code].....

I can mv xorg.conf to xorg.conf-pre and nexuiz will fire-up. Without 3d of course. I spent an hour or so last week going over my xorg.conf but it just ain't broke!

Someone else saw it, too, and reported it but his post remains alone in the thread as of 10 minutes ago. Anyone else seen this?

I don't play games much at all, but sometimes I just wanna frag muthafuckas and now I can't.

Debian Multimedia :: Install Nvidia Drivers In Squeeze?

Jun 21, 2011

It seems that I'm learning a bit about Debian in the last couple of days...

Here's the thing. I don't appear to be getting any 3D accelaration from my video card at the moment.

Having tried many things (which all failed) and making a mess of my computer I have done the following things:

1. Reinstalled Lenny from scratch.

2. Updated sources to point to stable and allowed update manager to do its thing.

I now appear to have a working build of squeeze.

X is up and running fine, but when I check /var/log/xorg it appears that I'm running the NOUVEAU driver, which does not support the 3D functionality of the card.

So... What is the best method for getting the appropriate driver installed?

My last attempt ended up with nvidia-glx fighting with xorg, so I'm hoping that someone will have up to date instructions that I can follow...

Debian Hardware :: When The Nvidia Legacy Drivers Are Going Into Squeeze

Feb 13, 2010

Does anyone know when or if the nvidia legacy drivers are going into Squeeze? I tried the ones in the Sid repos but ran into unresolvable dependencies. Lots of people were telling me that testing works just fine so I've been trying it out, but to be honest I've run into quite a few problems of this nature. I admit that I'm running a real Rube Goldberg mix of older and newer hardware on this box, but I wouldn't think it would be this much of a problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Driver 96 Doesn't Work With Geforce4 MX-4000?

Mar 24, 2010

I've been having big problems getting 9.10 to work with a Geforce4 MX-4000 card. I know it is not a hardware problem because I've got a dual boot win xp/9.10 setup and the video card works very well under win xp. The monitor is a Samsung P2250. The issue is that the highest resolution available after installing the recommended nvidia 96 driver is 800x600, the same as that before the driver was installed. This is very frustrating because the monitor requires 1920x1080 I'm not sure whether the driver is at fault or the xorg.conf settings.

Should I try installing the nvidia site drivers? I've checked out several forum threads on xorg.conf settings but I'm really not sure how to go on this. What I need is an entry level guide to setting up xorg.conf. The manual here is not that user friendly.

Debian Installation :: Deb6, 'turn On' Nvidia Settings / Nvidia's Latest 270.xx With Squeeze?

Jun 9, 2011

Using online Debian guide, installed latest nvidia-current, glx etc which seems to be 195.xx Machine boots to GUI but monitor setting menu doesnt respond nor is there an nvidia specific one. xorg.conf shows 'nvidia' driver but I suspect I am still on 'nouveau' since the synapatic package manager doesn't show an nvidia xserver-xorg-video choice.

Second question, any trailheads for using wheezy based drivers (i.e. nvidia's latest 270.xx) with squeeze?

Debian :: Installing Latest Nvidia Driver On Debian Squeeze ?

Nov 9, 2010

I installed Debian Squeeze with no issues. I went to install latest Nvidia driver as done previously with Lenny. Used instructions that worked on lenny from "the trooper" [url]

Downloaded th latest driver for my GeForce 7300 GS vidio card, driver package NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12.run

Used "method # 2 as described in HOW TO,as it worked perfectly in the past on Lenny. Only syntax I changed was instead of gdm I typed gdm3 as it appears that is the new name for gnome in Squeeze.

Did as folows:

Now the trouble showed up, Unfortunatly I can only go off my memory. A question was asked stating that something did not match, it needed a 3 and the driver had a 4 version or somethng of this sort. then it asked if I new what I was doing (and I lied) and selected yes. And whammo, it didn't work. (This question was asked when i did in Lenny and it is working perfectly still on that system). I now can not boot to GUI, I notice when system boots it starts in "S" mode although I select normal boot from grub2.

Not too bad if I got to reinstall as little is on the system. I just want to know what I am missing on the instalation deal or should I be going about this difrently with Squeeze.

Debian Multimedia :: Nvidia 260.19.12 Work With Squeeze?

Oct 28, 2010

Does this latest nVidia driver (version 260.19.12) work with the default Linux kernel in Debian Squeeze? And does it require any additional packages before installation?

(I cannot test it myself, since it's my brother who recently bought a new nVidia card)

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze Install - Nvidia Fan Constant?

Mar 5, 2011

I installed Debian Squeeze (choosing no when prompted to add support for non-free or contrib sources) and noticed that the fan of my Nvidia 9600 GT video card is constantly running at full speed. I thought this meant that the default driver is not properly working. I would like to configure my system so that the video card fan is not being pushed so hard.

I downloaded the latest Nvidia (propietary) driver, stopped gdm3, and ran the driver installer. The installer failed because it said the Nouveau kernel driver was currently in use and incompatible with the Nvidia driver. I chose not to allow the installer to update my modprobe configuration directory. nvidia-installer log file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log'

[Code]...

It looks at though the xorg.conf.new file has the nv driver in use, but the Nvidia installer says the Nouveau driver is being used. I ran a line in terminal (i forget the exact line) to test the xorg.conf.new file in the /root/ directory. The result was No Screens Found.

Next, I tried to remove the xserver-xorg-video-nouveau package using aptitude, but it displayed a message indicating that xserver-xorg-video-all depends on it. I decided not to remove the xserver-xorg-nouveau package. Any suggestions on how to proceed in order to configure X with a free driver (nv, vesa, or nouveau) so that the video card is handled properly?

Debian Multimedia :: Incorrect Video Resolution In Squeeze NVIDIA?

Jun 21, 2010

Having been using squeeze on my primary system for some time, I decided to install it on my media center PC. After doing a clean install I lost sound (another post) and my maximum video resolution dropped to 1280x1024. I was previously getting 1920x1080 (native) resolution under lenny on this box. So it's a mystery to me why I'm not getting that now. As you can see, the nvidia module is loaded:

# lsmod | grep nvidia
nvidia 9821382 0
i2c_core 12570 2 i2c_piix4,nvidia

PS--This was installed the "debian way" via module assistant.

Debian Multimedia :: NVidia Died With Last Kernel Update In Squeeze

Oct 21, 2010

It was no surprise that I needed to reinstall the nvidia driver after a 2.6.32-5-686 kernel update a couple days ago, but I was surprised that it didn't work. I've had to drop back to a kernel I compiled a few weeks ago, which is basically the stock 2.6.32-5-686 from that time, with a timer frequency of 1000 and desktop preemption.
Vid card is GeForce PCX 5750
Using NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.22-pkg1.run

This is the command I used:
env CC=/usr/bin/gcc-4.3 sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.22-pkg1.run
(After it didn't work, I ran it with --uninstall and tried installing again. No luck with that.)

Here's the nvidia installer log (sorry about the encoding. I don't know what happened with that): [URL]
rivafb, nvidiafb and rivatv are not loaded.

I don't see it in this one, but on a previous attempt, I saw an error message that said no nvidia graphics card was found. I've been suspicious that the card is slowly dying, based on problems like gray blocks on the screen or (in an older lenny install) persistence of the contents of a window appearing inside a terminal, when I switch desktops from the one where the browser is open to the one where the terminal is open. Scrolling the artifact off-screen and back, or window-shading the terminal and then un-shading it causes it to re-draw correctly.

Debian :: Nvidia Drivers Won't Install

Debian Configuration :: Thinkpad W510 - Squeeze 64-bit And NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M

Feb 14, 2010

I am running Debian Squeeze ( kernel 2.6.32-trunk) 64-bit on this machine - "most" of the hardware can talk to Linux or vice-versa. I am, however, having trouble finding a suitable free / non-free driver to work with the abovementioned card. It would seem that this card is too "new" at the moment (February 2010).

Debian Hardware :: Nvidia GTX 260m HDMI Audio Not Showing Up In Squeeze?

Oct 31, 2010

When i was using windows it shows up and works, so thus it has to have the hardware onboard and the support for it sans the driver. It's incapable of working, i don't know why but it's not listing it, and it's just not working with it. I've tried a million times before to find a fix and they only have them for the desktop drivers and not the mobile ones. I was glad to see that i could finally use a second monitor correctly in linux now but the hdmi audio thing is driving me loopy and there doesn't seem to be anyone else who has posted with this issue before.

Debian Installation :: NVidia Drivers Not Being Loaded

Sep 2, 2014

When I tried to rescue an old laptop that kept crashing (turned out to be HDD failure), a problem with the graphics quickly revealed itself. A graphical install was already impossible, and it looked like the image was starting halfway and wrapping around the screen, together with all kinds of artefacts. It's hard to describe, but impossible to work with. I did notice that all was okay when I booted into GParted live in the safe graphics mode (vga=normal).By the way, the system specs: AMD Turion64, NVidia 7150M.

When I had succesfully installed Debian using the normal non-graphical installer, the same effects showed up as soon as Nouveau was loaded, so I SSH'd into it to uninstall them and install the proprietary NVidia drivers. After purging nouveau and rebooting, the effects were gone! It clearly was a Nouveau issue. However, after I installed NVidia drivers successfully (X also started fine), I wanted to change the resolution using nvidia-settings which prompted:

"You do not appear to be using NVIDIA X driver. Please edit you X configuration file (just run nvidia-xconfig as root), and restart the X server."

Debian :: Xorg Configuration And Nvidia Drivers

Sep 29, 2015

While trying to solve the problem indicated in another thread [URL] .... I realised that I do not have the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Also, if I enter the command Code: Select allsudo kate I get

Code: Select allcannot connect to X server :0

I tried logging in to another terminal (tty3) and entered

Code: Select allstartx

Kate opened normally with root permissions.

Currently I have a Nvidia card but I am using nouveau drivers.

My question is: installing the Nvidia drivers (following the guide in [URL] .....) would fix these Xorg issues?

I had troubles with nvidia drivers in other distros....

Debian :: Install Wireless And Nvidia Drivers?

Apr 29, 2010

I looking for a new disto been using ubuntu. my friend recommended Debian, I just installed it and made it unusable very quickly by trying to use repositories for ubuntu. I'd like to know if there is an easy way to make my wireless work like in ubuntu it just does, (i don't even need to attach a cat 5 cable after install), and I'm happy in my blissful ignorance. Also an easy way to install nvidia drivers?

I need Broadcom and nivida 173 drivers. I looked through the Debian forums while I had a working system but found nothing easily and iceweavel was so slow, unless there was something wrong with my wired connection. Is there an easy way to install no free drivers?

Debian :: Debs For Ubuntu And Nvidia Drivers?

Jul 22, 2010

I'm in a bit of a rush so thought I'd ask two questions in one thread here.

1. Will a .deb made for ubuntu likely run into much trouble if I run it on Lenny?
2. Does the nvidia official proprietary driver come by default with a full 5-DVD install of x64 Debian 5.0.4, or do I need to install it myself? If so, is it enabled by default, or do I need to enable it? How?

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

Debian Multimedia :: Installing Nvidia Drivers In Lenny?

May 27, 2010

I'm still getting used to the system. I've been able to install a couple of packages like Disk Manager and Firefox, and was able to mount my ntfs drive. I've only learned some basic terminal commands, but I'm managing ok so far. That is until I looked into what was involved in installing the video drivers I need for my Nvidia 8400 GS card. (ouch!) I'm trying to follow the guide here: [URL] but I've run into a snag in the 'Overview' part: "0. Make sure APT has non-free and contrib sources (consult the sources.list(5) man page for help on doing this) " The link provided [URL] is dead. With only a basic understanding (next to none) of what the sources.list is for, I'm unsure how to fulfill step 0.
