I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Emachine Er1402-05, Wireless works fine, but not the grahics Emachine Er1402-05 has a nVidia GeForce 8200 graphics card. The problem is that after installation it only support resolution upto 1024x768, while my LCD has native resolution at 1600x900. I have installed the most recent nvidia driver $sudo apt-get install nvidia-current However, I was not able to config it:
$ sudo nvidia-xconfig sudo: nvidia-xconfig: command not found
I was not able to install the package.
$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-xconfig Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package nvidia-xconfig
I have just installed openSUSE 11.1 64 bit on my system. Subsequently registered to get an auto-update repo and auto-updated until no more updates were offered. Then I first tried YaST to install NVidia drivers from the NVidia repo (added their repo), but sax2 wouldn't recognize them. So I downloaded their 190. (beta) drivers, installed the kernel source code and gcc 4.3. Then I switched to a console (Ctrl+Alt+F1), closed the x server, ran the driver install as described (gcc 4.3 is installed). Installer said that all is fine (I checked the log to be sure). So I ran sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia, but the driver still isn't recognized.
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..
I am a recruit for Linux and install FC12 on my PC. The motherboard is ASUS M3N78-CM. The nvidia GeForce 8200 chipset on the motherboard is directlt used for vedio. The driver : NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-190.42-pkg2.run is downloaded from Nvidia website, but it can't drive the chipset successfully. So i can not start X-window. If anyone has a solution to this problem?
install the driver for my GeForce GT 220. I'm using the latest Debian and here's what happens: I get out of X and run ./NVIDIA... .run. It then says that I lack the cc tool for gcc. If I update gcc, it says that the gcc version used to compile the kernel mismatch my gcc version. If I ignore that error, it says that it can't find my kernel source.
I've enjoyed accelerated 3d graphics for years with this laptop, but since moving from CentOS 5.3 to FC12 I have had no 3d or opengl working at all.My install seems good. I'm running right now with the 'nvidia' driver in 1920x1200 res with no real problems except the lack of 3d. I have just finished trawling the forums again, coming back to: F12,F11 & F10 Nvidia driver guides [URL] I uninstalled all my nvidia packages, re-installed only "kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686" and dependencies, ensured 'nvidia' was my selected driver in xorg.conf (using nvidia-config-display disable, then enable), and rebooted, and still no joy. No errors in Xorg.0.log. My 'glx' extension is loaded. 'nouveau' is rdblacklisted. SELinux is disabled. I have 3Gb RAM and so have chosen not to use the PAE kernel or modules.

I typed "su -l" and telinit 3. But "ERROR: You appear to be running an X server" is written. What I can install this driver as well? or how I can booting up the Fedora 14 in text mode?
tried to install drivers for FX 5500 today, the one that Ubuntu recommended (173) and the current version (260). Both installs failed when it tried to set up python-support. Returned an exit status of "10". I don't know what that means. I could really use some help, because I just installed UT2K4, and without the driver, I can't play it. I'm running the latest release, as noted in the thread title. Dunno if it helps, but it was a clean install, because an alternate iso upgrade failed and mucked up 10.04.
I have installed Arch Linux quite a few weeks ago; but I'm still trying my best to install the nividia display driver for my graphics card (nVidia Geforce 2 MX 400). Not only in Arch but have tried installing on other distros and still failed. I have read up all the documentations and I still find it hard to do this task. When I used the terminal and executed the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-94.43.01-pkg1.run file without any window manager running, I get this problem:
Quote: ERROR: Unable to determine the version of the kernel sources located in '/lib/modules/2.6.35-ARCH/build'. 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.
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux driver download page at [URL].
Now I'm using Arch Linux Kernel 2.6.35 and I have got the source. But where am I suppose to put it now? I do not want to change the kernel. I just want the nVidia installer to identify that there is a kernel source so that it can install. I have searched up a lot on websites and ended up with no proper guide. This is a very old driver. So since now I have the nVidia driver installation package and also the kernel source
On openSUSE 11.1 I was able to configure KDE 4 for 2 monitors with sax2 (although the resolution was bad).On 11.2 neither SAX2 nor KRandR seem to work. The KDE User Guide says that a driver supporting version 1.2 is necessary. However the nvidia driver for eForce FX Go5200 seems to support only version 1.1.Is there a way to use both monitors with SUSE 11.2? I am quite desperate since for my work using only 1 monitor is definitely a handicap.
I did not find my graphics card in the HCL/Nvidia video cards thread. I looked in YaST for drivers & found none. My desktop pc freezes after the system loads so I cannot use my system. I understand about the level '3' boot option for tty input. How would I download/run the nvidia installer from tty?
When i start the install of the open suse linux 11.2 load the kernel but later my display is in black, i think that is my graphic card becouse in other linux only load linux without graphic mode, what i have to do for install open suse?, i can download a driver with the installer or something like?
I have a Macbook Pro which i want to install Opensuse 11.2 64bit(Upgrades to 11.3) The problem is that once i install opensuse and then boot via rEFIt, it loads up till the desktop is supposed to appear. All i get at this stage is darkness with a few coloured shapes in the background (Video driver not loaded).I can however reboot and go in via the failsafe option. Once in here i can use the GUI. I am a total noob with linux, can some one give me the instructions on how to install this driver. Its driving me insane. When i run uname -r, the results are 2.6.33-6-default I have added the following http repository (download.nvidia.com/opensuse/11.2/)
I have downloaded fedora 10, i386 and right to DVD/UD using 4x write speed. I have one machine have installed win xp, now i want to over right here, when i select installation , its asking common questions like language, drivers, when i select from Local CD/DVD i got 'No Driver Found' Error.
i know if u search a solution in forums u get so much confused information. i hope this little manual will help all with the nvidia driver problem! u dont need to edit or create a xorg.conf or something to run the driver correct and u need no blacklistedit too! if u did the standard opensuse 11.3 install its only about 2 kernel packages and the disabling of the x11noveau driver.
1. after standard installing opensuse 11.3 update and install the opensuse softwareupdates
2. install with the yast software re/installer:
(from Desktop or from the terminal. the terminal text command is: yast2)
u dont need to change the menu.lst after all, only u get many problems. run the midnight commander and delete the nomodeset word and the noveau driver would be normally still active after reboot.
I would like to test 12.1 M5 on my real hardware, so I have special for this purpose two additional partitions (sda2 (to install milestone) and sda3 (to store installation ISO files)). I am running my stable 11.4 with Grub on sda1.
I do not like to burn DVDs just for short test of one milestone, so I was used to download DVD ISO, to unpack it to sda3 partition with all its files, then I changed Grub to boot install Linux from sda3. Installation complains there is no DVD or CD, then I chose to force installation from hard disk and select sda3 partition and select root directory "/". As I was used to from 11.4 this will start installation as it would be started from DVD.
But I think the problem has appeared since 12.1, where I get message: No repository found. (on sda3 / ), so the installation does not start.
I know this is not official way to install openSuse, but it worked before, and it was fast and easy for me, to install from hard disk.
After starting the Nvidia driver installer I get the error message "please exit x before installing". I read the manual page for X. From the console I typed X -terminate. I get the error message "Fatal server error" "Server is already active for display 0". how to exit from X.
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.

I was following this guide to install my nvidia drivers...[URL] but when I got to the step about checking to see if my card is supported I'm to check here...[URL] I don't see my card anywhere in this list So I kept reading and found this posting ... [URL] and it says that it is support under the geforce 200 ... The last time that I installed this driver my X session quit working ... I was able to ssh back into the laptop and undo the driver install so now i'm a little gun shy about trying it again...
* My Graphics card is a NVIDIA Geforce 7900 GTX. I am running OpenSUSE 11.2. I have attempted to install the Propriety NVIDIA Drivers (without success). I have added the repository to YAST, then proceeded to install the NVIDIA software.
I then proceeded to reboot my computer into "init 3" mode. I ran the nvidia-xconfig tool as described in the openSUSE Graphic Card Practical Theory Guide for Users site I then proceeded to type "startx" and it failed to load.
