OpenSUSE Install :: When Official Drivers For NVIDIA Cards Are Coming Out?
Jul 15, 2010
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?
Compiz works out of the box in Live systems when run on computers with integrated Intel graphics chips.Is there a way to make it work on system with Nvidia or ATI chips? Even if I have persistence enabled, downloading and installing the drivers does not carry over to the next session and it again throws up a "restricted drivers available/needed" prompt.P.S The purpose of doing this is for demos. Plugging in a live system and letting people play with whizbang effects is the best way to convert them
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
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.
I have a computer with a Radeon HD 3200 graphics card and I am trying to use the ATI drivers for the HD cards because according to the wiki it is for HD 2000+ cards. After installing via the RPM and using aticonfig/sax2 to configure the card I have no X.org after boot/init 5 and in xorg.0.log. I get the following output regarding the driver
I have followed the troubleshooting guide in the wiki and still no go. "We must plan for freedom, and not only for security, if for no other reason than only freedom can make security more secure."
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
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?
I would like to know the best way to swap out video cards from ati to nvidia. For example. In windows, I would uninstall the driver, switch the cards, boot into a low VGA windows session and install the new drivers, reboot done.
In sues, I'm wondering if I uninstall the drivers, after rebooting I might loose my Gnome desktop. And I guess at that point I'd be looking at a blinking cursor?
i just upgraded my pc to 12.1 milestone 5 when i went to play my fav game (Xonotic) it was all laggy at 1 fps. I realised the graphics card app wasnt working anymore.Can any 1 fix PS and i had to go on failsafe too. PS2 milestone 5 workes flawlessly apart from the gnome 3 bug at startup
[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
opensuse 11.2 ,my monitor keeps going to sleep or somthing and this is a problem when im watching videos,ive set screens power setting but they dont seem to be whats doing it.im running a nvidia gtx260 and have installed nvidia drivers for series 6 and up.dont know if its the divers or somthing else.
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 am finding a lot of issues with flash in 11.4 release. As I know it is flash issue, because some people after updating flash on 11.3 got the same problem.
Flash seams to be crashing or/and slowing down web browser. After trying to figure out where is the problem, i found that: 1) removing SLI helped a little bit 2) updating to beta (270) nvidia drivers helped a little bit (moving window with flash animation from one screen to another one that is connected to different graphic card does not crash the browser anymore)
But still the problem exists.
For example, sometimes when i minimize the window with flash animation and i open new window (e.g. with spreadsheet) and move it on the same place where was previous window with flash, I can see this flash animation as a background of the new window....
Also, when i am moving the window with flash around, the flash disappears or gets gray.
Sometimes, ..... does not load the movie, but if i open the movie in VM windows, it works fine. After reloading Xwindows it works for a while also in opensuse.
I have dell inspiron-1545 laptop.I installed rhel5(downloaded from torrent for free),kernel (2.6.18-8el5xen).i got a driver cd from dell containing rhel drivers for audio,video,network.i tried to install those drivers but could not.it asked for dkms 2.0 which i installed.but even now also some errors are coming(like dependencies missing etc.).so no internet ,no sound,no video on my laptop.
Some command outputs:
When i boot every process come OK except(cpu micromodule failed.fatal error and hub port status failed). i think these cards have not been detected.
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've recently ran the Updater Applet to install any pertinent official openSUSE updates, but I got 2-3 (they vanished before I could click on them) popups on the bottom right of my screen saying that an update had failed. Additionally, I found the following message in the Updater's lower panel:
Code: This update fixes an issue caused by a previous yast2-ncurses update, which would leave some ncurses (textmode) yast2 tools crashing. - #569000: yast2-ncurses-2.18.11-0.1.1: crash of yast -i with a segmentation fault
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
Are there any official, almost-official or maybe even reasonably stable kernel repositories with new kernels for opensuse 11.2? I recently changed my laptop for a new one which has some issues, which then again are solved in 2.6.33 (and even in 2.6.32 with some tweaking). I would by any means try to avoid kernel recompilation.
I would like to have the opensuse 10.3 DVD for installing gcc. (I lost the original DVD and with opensuse 11 my laptop does not work) Do you know a webpage where I can download it? The official page doesn't work.
