Hardware :: Possible To Install Nvidia Driver Without Card?
Jan 8, 2010
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.
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 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'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 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 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 just instaled bt4 on my hdd and i have a problem with instaling drivers... i cant find and install driver for my video card nvidia 8200 integrated on motherboard. exacly i got the problem with changeing video resolution... i have only 640x480 and 800x600, and here is the problem, i cant put it in 1024x768..
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.

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.
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.
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"
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 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?
I just got a new computer and I have been busy setting it up with openSUSE 11.2. I am trying to install the Nvidia proprietary driver for my graphics card, a Geforce GTX 260, but it will not work. I added the Nvidia repository and I am installing the driver for GeforceFX series cards but every time I restart I get a command prompt and if I try to start x it says that my card is not supported. This is really getting frustrating, I need the proprietary driver so I can play DDO with Wine.
Can do nothing with the PC. New install of 10.04 and was prompted to install Nvidia driver. Did so. Rebooted, now have nothing except a thin line at top of screen. How can I remove this driver when I see nothing?
I'm somewhat new to Fedora but not Linux in general. I went to install the nvidia driver as per any instructions I found on the internet that yielded results. I typed sudo yum install kmod-nvidia and eventually got a driver, blacklisted nouveau, restarted, and finally got compiz and all my desktop effects.
The problem was when I played Minecraft, which for those who don't know is a game, from a .jar file. After ~5 minutes of playing something happens and everything freezes. Video completely stops but I still have mouse control and sound(at least for anything already running). Clicking stuff does nothing and no hotkeys work to bring up anything at all. I end up having to do a reset by hand to get anything done. Turning off desktop effects didn't help.
Why is this? Did I install the wrong driver, even though kmod-nvidia should find the right one on it's own? nvidia 8800 GT is my card. Could it be the java program screwing things up royally? I can't remember if the program worked fine on it's own before the driver install, but uninstalling the driver now causes the game to fail on launch, which I guess makes sense but can't figure out if it's simply the lack of driver or if removing the driver screwed something else up. I might just reinstall fedora and start from scratch again, but before I did that I wanted to find out if I'm just installing the wrong driver and can simply find teh right one to fix all of this.
I've tried linux many times in the past, and I'm always irritated to the point of formatting it, shredding the disk, and cursing it while enjoying my windows. Anyhow, (for some reason beyond me) I'm trying it again. Let me start off with the fact that I am very very irritated with how difficult this is becoming (why the hell can't nvidia just make a driver I can install without all of this crap?). OK, so I know how to cd to a directory, login as root. Any time I try to install the nvidia driver, it tells me I need to close X. I've tried going into the recovery terminal and it tells me this. I've also tried the command "/etc/init.d/gdm stop" and then it just takes me to a black screen.I can't do anything from there but push ctrl+alt+delete to restart.So,if anyone can give me simple steps that would be great. I don't want to learn how to use the OS, I just want to install this driver so I can read text and more than half of my monitor is displayed on,I'm on linux hardy heron 8.04
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 RC, and only basic graphics work.I have Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT. I cant enable desktop effects, nor can i watch video or anything else. Is there a way to install nvidia driver in RC? It looks and feels real nice i wish i can start using it right now.
I've got some problems while using the Nvidia driver for my videocard.
Some system information: Intel core i5 430M 4 GB DDR3 RAM Nvidia Geforce GT 325M 1 GB HDD 500 GB, 5400 rpm Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit (Windows 7 64 bit)
I installed the newest nvidia driver(260.19.21), using the guide on this site:
Installing NVIDIA 3D Drivers Linux article Link(not allowed to post URLs, so I cut it in pieces) [url]
And I tried many other methods(System, Administration, Additional Drivers), other driver versions and so on.
The installation succeeds, but when i'm trying to reboot it wont start gdm. It will boot in Text-only(CTRL+ ALT +F1), and it won't let me use gdm. Restarting gdm, startx, all of them won't work. The only way is to boot in recovery and restore the default xorg.conf file.
Nvidia card is working under windows, so it isn't broken.
I managed to install the graphics card's driver on several distributions, but I just don't get what I have to do to run it on Fedora.Well.... The installation program asks me that X must be stopped... but.. how do I do that?Ctrl + Alt + Backspace doesn't work.When typing "top", X or gdm are not in the list.
I installed on my laptop NVIDIA driver from the opensuse repository. After restart i am not geting the GUI.The screen blinks while booting and finally ends in command line login. Error shows that gdm lasted for only few seconds. Max number of try exceeded.
