Yast2 appears to be broken. Whenever I open the YaST control center and attempt to install new software, I am greeted with this error message. When I click on the "Install New Software" shortcut from the start menu, nothing happens.
I researched this error message and found that apparently I can install software via Zypper, but all the commands to enter in the terminal result in a message about an unrecognized command.
I'm new to linux and trying to install the driver for Nvidia quardo fx 380 lp in redhat 5.4.From the Nvidia site I got the driver for this card to be NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12. I did check version of the gcc and kernel built by the gcc version. I also checked the following commands. # cat /proc/version Linux version 2.6.18-194.el5PAE (firstname.lastname@example.org) (gcc version 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-48)) #1 SMP Fri Oct 29 22:00:21 EDT 2010
Im trying to add the binary NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.14-pkg1.run in my CentOS 5.4 ks.cfg file. The problem is that when you manually run the program it asks you questions and you have to respond with ok if you agree to their licensing terms. I want to be able to include this binary in my kickstart so when my machine boots up for the first time this driver is already installed and I don't have to waste time troubleshooting video issues. Is there anyway I can do this?
I am having a strange problem with the Opensuse 11.2 Xorg server. Graphics hardware is Nvidia Quadro FX-5000, driver is ver 190.53. 90% of the time, I am getting a seg violation from the Xserver on trying to login via kdm:
...is the error that is present in the "kdm.log" file. So far, it doesn't seem to be user dependent (happens either as root or joe random user,) Again, so far, it only seems to happen with "driver nvidia" enabled in the config file, not with "driver nv" The failure occurs shortly after hitting return on the login screen. After it fails, it starts up a new Xserver, and presents a new login screen. Repeated attempts seem to *eventually* succeed, but 90% of the time, it fails I strongly suspect the Nvidia driver, but I have not been able to find anything documenting any similar problems.
I`am trying to install drivers for a very old graphics card GeForce2 GTS/Pro on Suse 11.2. I downloaded driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.13-pkg1.run and install it successfully. But when I launch "sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia" it crushes with error "isax: could not import file: /var/cache/sax/files/config at /usr/sbin/isax line 199"
I've been unable to boot into x using the real-time kernel from CCRMA at home. I get the error "Failed to load module "nvidia" (module-specific error,0) no drivers available. I'm using the driver from Nvidia. I know that this is not an official Fedora kernel and I should be bothering CCRMA about this, but in the mean time could I edit the entry in grub.conf so that it will use the Nouveau driver for that kernel only? That way I could "dual-boot", and just use the rt kernel when I want to use audio software and don't need 3d graphics.
when i trying to install NVIDIA drivers i get compile error:
NVIDIA: calling KBUILD... test -e include/linux/autoconf.h -a -e include/config/auto.conf || ( echo; echo " ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid."; echo " include/linux/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are mis sing.";
I am trying to install the Nvidia Quadro NVS 110 169.04 drivers but am having issues during install. Prior to attempting my install I did install the kernel-devel rpm so it can compile. after running the RPM I get. Quote: No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel from the NVIDIA ftp site [URL]?
which of course does not work. next it says Quote: "No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.. i hit okay and move on to. Quote: Error: Unable to find the kernel sources tree for the currently running kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured; on Red Hat linux systems, for example be sure you have the 'kernel-source' or 'kernel-devel' RPM installed. if you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the "--kernel-source-path' command line option
I just built myself an new workstation and now only 2 of 3 monitors are working. I built the nvidia driver by downloading it and installing with ./Nvidia...Before when I ran nvidia-settings I saw two GPUs listed but now I only see one. Xorg Config (Not sure how I ended up with 3 devices in there):

I have just bought a Dell Optiplex 960 with a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 450. Everything works out of the box with the 10.04.1 Live CD. It suggests to install and activate NVIDIA proprietary drivers, but you need to restart the machine afterwards. The problem is that, after that, all what you get is a blank screen, with not even a cursor. The same happens when you install Lucid: blank screen with no cursor. Ctrl+F1 does not show anything, but Ctrl+Alt+Prnt Scrn+REISUB works and the PC is reset. In the var directory the logs show that the NVIDIA module is not loaded.
Like the title says, I have the Quadro NVS 135M in my Dell D630. It's working (well, besides the startup screen issue - Plymoth... not a fan!), but when I watch a movie the image ?flickers? annoyingly. This is something I have never experienced before, with allegedly ?inferior? video cards. It's odd though, isn't it - better video card, inferior output!?!
I come here every two or three years, when I have some troubles with my graphic card. Indeed, once again. Since last Tuesday, I experience some system freeze. Since yesterday, I must run on low graphic mode. As there has not been any X.org or driver update, I suspect that my graphic card is running down. But I do not know how to diagnose this.
My configuration: -- Dell Latitude D820 laptop; -- processor Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 (2.0GHz 667MHz FSB); -- bi-canal 2x1024Mo DDR2-SDRAM 533MHz memory; -- graphic card NVIDIA Quadro NVS 110M 256MB; -- 15.4" WSXGGA+ (1680 x 1050) LCD screen; -- 100Go SATA (7200 TPM)) hard-drive; -- 8x DVD +/- RW burner; -- battery 9 cells 85 WHr LI-ION; -- Bluetooth card for Latitude; -- Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 802.11a/g; -- Ubuntu Linux 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope desktop 64 bits real-time kernel.
Trying to install 64bit onto Dell T3500 with NVidia Quadro NVS 295. Live Cd works and Install completes. When I boot I get BIOS and Disk info then boot switches to flashing cursor after disk read and then Monitor goes into sleep mode.
for the last few releases, starting with 9.04 i've been having serious crashing problems with the nvidia driver. whether i installed it manually using the latest drivers directly from nvidia, or installing them through the restricted driver option. after a few hours CRASH. it's been awful. and i tried everything from this side to the moon to fix this issue, all to no avail. no idea why i've even stayed with ubuntu after all these issues. came from the debian world back in 5.04, and almost moved back a few times. but i did a clean install of 10.04, and thought i'd give the nvidia driver one last chance... if it didn't work i'd be moving back home to debian (with the suspicion the issue would stay).
so after i tried the restricted driver and CRASH. nothing to fix it. then i thought ok i'll try to use the latest driver from nvidia. but ran into this error when installing it:
Quote: ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module nvidia.ko. This happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s), or NVIDIA GPU installed in this system is not supported by this NVIDIA Linux graphics driver release. so after googling around i found a fix to this error i was getting during the install:

On my Lenovo T410 (openSUSE 11.4 KDE - 64bit) I have mobile broadband. Gobi-loader is installed and working properly. However when I try to setup mobile broadband connection the KDE Control Module crashes. Tried many times also after reboots, though KDE Control Module keeps crashing.
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).

I have repeatedly installed CentOS 5.5 64-bit on a Dell T3500 with an nVidia Quadro FX 580, in an attempt to get dual monitor support to work to no avail. Everything works fine when just one monitor is plugged in and I do not try to enable or plug in a second monitor. I have installed the Dell DKMS, and the Dell recommended drivers (from Dell site) on one installation, I installed the nVidia drivers (from nVidia site) on another, and have tried with what CentOS loads by default on another. The results are the same every time: When I reboot as directed I get a black screen. I can recover by hard shutdown and unplugging one of the monitors, but that doesn't solve my problem. Has anyone had a similar experience, or have any helpful guidance? I am not very Linux savvy. This is for multiple machines in a corporate environment.

I keep getting a warning messaged almost every time I reboot about Ubuntu running in low-graphics mode on a Macbook 5,1. This has been happening since Lucid Beta 1.
Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the system's kernel log for additional error messages and consult the NVIDIA README for details.
After I finish loading in low graphics mode I have to run "sudo nvidia-xconfig". Then, the next reboot the graphics card driver is loaded properly. Is anyone else experiencing this problem or have an idea how to correct it? I know it is a long shot, but do you think doing a fresh install of the stable release would work?
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 recently purchased a Quadro FX 4800 and tried to install it on Fedora 10. During the installation, Fedora didn't recognize my new graphics card and began installing the OS in text mode. I stopped the installation and tried to start over, this time I passed the following command: linux resolution=1024x768. I then proceeded with the installation, and again, I was posed with a text mode installation. I continued with the text mode install and when Fedora was done installing, I rebooted and system just locked up.
At this point I was frustrated, so I reinstalled my old 8800 graphics card and started a new install with something that worked in the past. When the install was done, I loaded the latest NVIDIA drivers and the rebooted. I reinstalled my new graphics card (Quadro FX 4800) then powered up my system. I thought everything was good to go and all of a sudden my system flickered and then locked up during the 'Anacron' testing phase. I then rebooted with the "Ctrl+Alt+Del" hotkeys, but my system always locks up during the 'Anacron' testing sequence. I am aware that the Quadro FX 4800 is a few months old, but how can I get it to work in linux? It has gotten so bad, that I had to resort to using MS Vista.

I am posting this to hear if there are others with display issues on Dell E6500 laptop with the Nvidia Quadro NVS 160 driver. This problem is starting to annoy me a great deal, but I am uncertain how I should move forward. In short; I have Ubuntu 10.04 x64 installed on my Dell E6500 laptop. When using only the laptop, everything works great. The second I plug it into the docking station (the laptop lid closed) and want to use my two external monitors (Dell 2001FP) I'm in trouble. I cant see anything and what I get is a 'DVI: Cannot Display this Mode' on the primary monitor - If i try a regular VGA cable I get nothing but a black screen.
I have played around with the Nvidia config but it cant find my monitors and therefore I cant do much. I am aware of the various "hack the xorg.conf" options, but I before I do that I wanted to see if others had experienced the same thing. I had hoped that we were pasted the hack stage and that primary functions such as display would work by now.
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.
