OpenSUSE Install :: OS 11.3 RC2 - Disable Nouvou Module Permanently; Use Propietary NVidia Drivers?
Jul 5, 2010
I have compiled the proprietary nvidia drivers for 11.3. When I boot, even using the nomodeset boot option, the nouveau module still loads, causing gdm/X to fail. I am able to manually remove the modules with rmmod and restart gdm. Everything then works normally. I have added the line "blacklist nouveau" to both 50-blacklist.conf and 99-local.conf in /etc/modprobe.d
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04, it was all working like a charm until y tried to install nvidia's propietary drivers using the integrated hardware drivers manager. Now ubuntu just boots into a non graphical tty. How can i fix Xorg?I have an AMD Athlon X2 5200+, the chipset is a nForce 430 with an integrated Geforce 6150.
So I have been trying to install these drivers forever and after going through a million forum posts and Google searches I have been unsuccessful. The process I have been trying starts as such: I hit ctrl-alt-f1 and then login as root. i then change to run level 3 by doing /sbin/init 3. After that's done I cd to desktop and do sh NVIDIA-LINUX-x86-185.18.29-pkg1.run --kernel-source-path /usr/src/kernel/2.6.18-128.2.1.el15-i686
If I don't give it the source path it can't find the source tree. Eventually I get the error: 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
I've just installed Squeeze and try to install Nvidia drivers, but installer wrote that I have to disable Nouveau first. So could you please tell me how to turn off nouveau driver totally and correctly.
When using hardened gentoo kernel with PaX and SELinux...but SELinux is disable...I can not run Compiz Fusion. I get: Compiz: error while loading shared libraries: libgl.so.1: failed to map segment from object: operation not permitted". I went into X without compiz fine with no problems. Just seems to be with Compiz-Fusion. This is with Nvidia closed source drivers.
I need to install the latest drivers for my Nvidia card. I have the Quadro FX 1800.I don't think the Nvidia One click installation will work with this card.I downloaded the drivers from Nvidia and tried to install them but their directions are very confusing. It says "exit x windows" and "restart in init 3". I don't know what that means.Can someone tell me step-by-step how to compile and install the nvidia drivers?I have opensuse 11.2 64-bit clean install with all the defaults, and the Quadro FX 1800.

1 64bit system installs but wont let me do updates so now using 32bit thats ok 2 How do I update drivers? My screen seems to have ghosting around the edges
3 On firefox when scrolling down the page its jerky Ive used firefox on most of my Pcs and never had this problem Im duel booting ubuntu and suse and using the internet on ubuntu so far other than these problems suse is fine
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.
Like a guy earlier today report a problem with Opensuse 11.2 working fine on his machine but 11.3 is not. I have somewhat the same problem. The default installation freezes randomly. I have seen this error before with Intel video cards but never with NVIDIA. Right now, I'm using VESA in failsafe mode and trying to install some drivers from this repo.
I'll try and find a fix for this. (Hope their is one)BTW, can anyone confirm when the official drivers for NVIDIA cards are coming out?
Basically everything was going fine, and i was enjoying the OpenSuse experience, then downloaded djl (Games Launcher) , installed some games and found that i had a very very very bad frame rate (about 1FPS), and my GPU is a NVIDIA GTS250 (1GB), and runs most games flawlessly under m$, so i went about installing the graphics drivers for my card. I followed the instructions and was under the assumption that i installed the correct ones, but now i cannot boot into any graphical interface. I think that it should be a graphics issue, as this was one of the few things done before rebooting. I have tried booting into the normal mode, and the failsafe, I have read many other "Not booting'' posts, and have tried their solutions without success, there include: Changing the boot parameters Logging in and manually trying to boot up the gui (init 3.... init 5... etc)
When the computer tries to load up OpenSuse in normal mode, it comes up with the normal loading screen, and then about 90% of the way it stops for about 30 seconds, and then switches over to a CLI, asking for a login, going through the log a couple of things fail, did have these noted down (but cannot find and will post along with other commands that i am asked to do) I want to try and avoid a reinstall as it took me a long time to get the WiFi card working.
I've recently jump from the Ubuntu/Mint ship, and figured I've give a polished KDE distribution a shot. Of course I turned to OpenSuSE, and I love it so far. I've resisted KDE quite a lot since 4.x came out but it's really come along. Much better than the (in my opinion) monstrous disaster that Gnome has become.
Anyways, on to my problem: I've installed the proprietary Nvidia drivers via the one-click-install shown in the wiki, and that worked great. But now my resolution at boot - that is the boot/loading screen, not my desktop - is shown at a very low resolution instead of my native resolution, like it was with OpenSuSE's default open-source Nvidia driver, which I'm guessing is Nouveau. On Ubuntu, this was pretty easy to correct; all you had to do was edit /etc/default/grub and put your resolution there, and tinker with some other options so that instead of Plymouth trying to set its own, it just carries over Grub's specified resolution. But I can't seem to do that with OpenSuSE. For one, I don't see /etc/default/grub, and more than that, I don't think you guys use Plymouth. I could be wrong on that second point, though. So, how can I change the boot screen's resolution to my native resolution? I'm using the latest Stable release (11.4) and latest Nvidia drivers. Other than that, the install is new.
My install of 11.4 (& 12.1) won't load unless I add the X11failsafe option to the loading of 11.4 (& 12.1) in the Grub menu.lst file. They bomb out after resetting the video when booting. I don't need to do this with my 11.3 install. Upon closer inspection 11.3 is using the nouveau nVidia driver, whereas both 11.4 & 12.1 are using the fbdev nVidia driver. My Hardware is a GEForce 6150SE and a Samsung SyncMaster 933SN. I have a couple of questions
1) What do I lose by adding the X11failsafe option in Menu.lst?
2) Can I, should I, replace the fbdev driver with something else. If yes, What? Nouveau?
[URL] I just updated and then saw this news , whats the solution for me, I either want to go beta or downgrade, If i try to boot to previous kernel, boot hangs in graphic mode, I cant start X and gdm . How to install kmod with beta drivers? Or whats the solution, nvidia ver: 195.36.08

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"
I have Ubuntu 10.10. I want to install the from the nvidia website. The propriatary drivers from Ubuntu aren't great. I have downloaded the file, but what do I do with it now? How can I get it installed?
I'm using Opensuse 11.2 with the fglrx-driver out of the ati-reposiotry.This fglrx-driver installs a HDA-HDMI-Audio driver using the snd-hda-intel module.My onboard via soundchip uses the same module: snd-hda-intelWith the hdmi-device set to the first device a few apps (like the flash-plugin) use the hdmi-device, which is not connected to any speaker.I can't switch the via-card to the first device in yast, because both cards use the kernel-module. I tried different things on /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound.conf with not results. And it is not possible to put the module on a blacklist, because both cards use it.Is there any way to disable the hdmi-device or to set the via-device to default?Here the output of aplay -l

I am a newbie and I am compiling a kernel in order to reduce the bootup time. I have a question as follows.
I am trying to remove a module. I used rmmod and modprobe. I can remove the module, but it is loaded again after reboot. How can I remove a module permanently? The module that I am trying to remove is lp.
I got this problem where my USB ports don't work. So if I do the command:
modprobe -r ehci_hcd
it fixes it. I can put it in the /etc/rc.local so that it runs every time when the server reboots. But, I want the ehci module removed without ever being loaded because sometimes the server goes through an fsck and the module is loaded and therefore I cannot use my IPMI to access the server.
I believe that my kernel has it within it because blacklisting the module does not work. I've tried remaking the initrd with this:
add module to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist mkinitrd -f /boot/initrd-$(uname-r).img $(uname -r)
and that didn't work. I've searched on how to do it but nothing is really clear. I would like to know what the command would be to do this. I use Fedora 8.
I would like the ehci_hcd module to not be loaded so that if the server goes through an fsck, the module is still not loaded.
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"
So I just installed Ubuntu on my second laptop, however I ran into a problem. The F9 key is going crazy. I'm not exactly sure what is causing it (I've already popped off and cleaned the keys) but if I could find a way to just disable it I'd be very happy.
I'm trying to install the nVidia driver for a fresh Installation of OpenSUSE 11.4 (32-bit) but I'm running into some issues. I followed the instructions (SDB:NVIDIA the hard way - openSUSE) using the driver binary mentioned in the workaround link (NVIDIA DRIVERS 256.53 Certified) but the installer fails while building the kernel module with the following errors:
Code: nvidia-installer log file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' creation time: Sun Mar 13 17:32:56 2011
I came across the following method of how to permanently disabling selinux and it's notifications. Although changing enforcement from the gui into permissive mode does most of the job, the notifications still pop-up when some applications are started.
So to disable it do the following:
open terminal as root and execute:
And then change the SELINUX line to SELINUX=disabled
This is it. Now reboot the system and selinux will never bother you again.
If you are not a Fedora user and you are using this forum just because we are cooler here then you will not find the /etc/selinux/config as in the fedora releases. What you need to do is to edit the kernel boot line and add selinux=0 at the end:
I have upgraded to ubuntu 10.4 i have some issues with it, first how to disable service permanently using GUI, second how can i change root passwd i tried sudo passwd root does not work, third i have network shared driver i want to mount permanently and create short cut to desktop.
