General :: Nvidia Driver - Proprietary - Xorg/KDM - Some Games Freeze Sometimes

Apr 22, 2011

I have a problem that pops up with some games, sometimes: sauerbraten, lugaru, and nexuiz being the ones that pop to mind.

The problem is that when the game starts/loads the mouse "cursor" in the game will not work... the thing is frozen. The "fix" is to jump to a virtual terminal, via alt-ctrl-1, and restart KDM, then I log back into the session and everything is working swell.

This problem does not occur in Osmos, World of Goo, Warzone 2100, or the Linux Ryzom client.

I thought about adding an explicit /etc/init.d/kdm restart in my /etc/kde4/kdm/Xreset file, but that seems too draconian.

This has been a recurring problem on several machines with several 7000, 8000, and 9000 series Nvidia cards running under the proprietary driver, on both 32-bit and 64-bit AMD processors ever since Lenny and up through Wheezy. And it occurs on the following desktop/windowing environments: KDE4.4, icewm, fluxbox, blackbox, E17.

I would guess that it's a driver issue or a driver+xorg configuration issue.

PS: Please don't suggest that I should use the open source driver.

Debian Multimedia :: Proprietary Nvidia Driver - High CPU Usage Xorg

Aug 7, 2015

I recently switched from jessie to stretch on both i encountered a jerky ui in gnome 3. after a longer research i noticed xorg consumes over 80% of my first cpu-core while moving a window. for testing purposes i switched back to the nouveau driver and there is no high cpu usage while moving a window, also the ui is smooth.

i tried 3 different nvidia driver: the one from the debian repository, the current stable and beta driver from the nvidia site. i noticed on all 3 the same problem.

Code: Select alldaniel@Daniel-PC:~$ glxinfo | grep rendering
direct rendering: Yes
    GL_NV_path_rendering, GL_NV_pixel_data_range, GL_NV_point_sprite,
    GL_NV_path_rendering, GL_NV_pixel_data_range, GL_NV_point_sprite,

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Beta Driver: Resolution Cannot Be Saved In Xorg File

Jan 31, 2011

I am using 10.10 64bit with a Nvidia GeForce Graphic Card on my Acer 5741G 434 Notebook.

I have always used Compiz and without it I can barely use my Notebook. Apparently I had to install the Nvidia accelerated 3d Drivers (current version) in order to use Compiz.

However I cannot enable the "normal" visual effects (right click on desktop / change bakcground/ visual effects) that are necessary for using compiz.

Also everytime I reboot my resolution goes back to 800x600 although I saved the resolution to 1366. So everytime I start my Notebook I have to go to the Nvidia X server settings and set the resolution to 1366.

What I tried until now:

- I tried to reinstall Ubuntu twice!

- I tried to unistall all nvidia Drivers and install through the terminal using the command "sh" the nvidia drivers i downloaded from their website

- I tried to use the nouveau open source driver

Additional Information:

- when I boot a logo of the nvidia BETA driver appears

- for the past couple days I even experienced another problem: the windows do not have the minimize/close and maximize buttons

I am even willing to install the System again!

I had nothing but problems with the latest 10.10 ubuntu distribiution.

Jun 1, 2011

I am running slackware 13.37. I installed the newest NVIDIA drivers 270.41.19 and now impossible to load Xorg.

I get:

fatal server error:

How I installed the new nvidia drivers:
- removepkg xf86-video-nouveau
- installed xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist-noarch-1.txz for blacklist the nv drivers
- run script nvidia
- run nvidia-xconfig
- reboot

The startx and black screen with errors messages mentioned above.

I run glxinfo | grep render and i get " Error: Unable to open display". Logical since no Xorg

I run dmesg | grep nvidia and I get all the required fields:
- NVIDIA taint kernels
- power state
- enabling device
- Setting latency

I have to manually copy the errors messages since my PC is not working.

When I run "find /usr/lib -name *.270.* " I do get the module Same thing when I run "find /lib -name nvidia.ko". I see the nvidia.ko module.

Configuration :: Newest Upgrade Of Debian Testing Breaks Nvidia And Xorg / What's Going On?

Jul 1, 2011

I just updated my Debian testing as usual (apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade), and it totally screwed up Nvidia drivers. I had to revert to integrated graphic card to start Xorg.
After that, I noticed that libgl1-nvidia-glx is missing, and when I tried to install it back, it produces the following:

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libgl1-nvidia-glx : Depends: libgl1-nvidia-alternatives but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

Any ideas what's going on with it?

Slackware :: Can't Kill X For Nvidia Driver Install

Feb 8, 2011

I've been using Debian mostly for years now. Just got Slackware 13 (Xfce4) all set-up really nice. But I can't seem to "kill" or stop the x server to install the nvidia driver. I downloaded the one I know works for my older gforce4 card from the Nvidia website itself (the 96.43.19 one). In Slackware,..when I hit "Ctrl+Alt+F1, doesn't go to the prompt! I've tried everything I can think of in the Terminal,..but I admit, I don't really have a clue what I'm really doing,..and Google isn't really turning up much to go on. I even got the driver started in the terminal,...then it "fussed" at me for not killing x.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.2 - Recent Upgrade Of NVidia Driver?

Jun 19, 2011

I'm using a Dell Precision M65 portable workstation, often plugged to a docking station and with an external monitor attached. The graphic card is an nVidia Quadro FX 350M. I've been using openSUSE 11.2 until recently (with KDE 4.3.5). Then, during a routine update, the nVidia driver was upgraded from version 260.19.44 to 270.41.06. Desktop effects stopped working, and even after disabling them, some applications (presumably relying on direct rendering) do not work properly. I decided then to install openSUSE 11.4. The problems remain, with the additional issue that I can't switch anymore between the external monitor and the laptop display. I've tried several options using nvidia-settings; the original configuration when the system was working was "TwinView", "Cloned".

Direct rendering is still on:
phoebe:~ # glxinfo | grep -i rendering
direct rendering: Yes
but glxgears, for instance, while giving very high FPS, produces only a black window instead of the usual rotating gears.

The problem seems similar to the one cited here:
openSUSE:Most annoying bugs 11.4 - openSUSE
However, in my case, it appears with a driver newer than 270.29, so I am not sure this is the same issue. I also tried to follow the advices given here:
SDB:NVIDIA troubleshooting - openSUSE
without success.

I also noticed that my card (Quadro FX 350M) is no longer in the list of supported cards for that driver (the closest I could find is Quadro FX 360). But, again, it may not be relevant for this issue. So, at this stage I'm considering downgrading to the previous version of the driver (260.19.44). Before doing that, however, I thought to check for configuring options I may have missed.

Summary of HW/SW:
Model: Dell Precision M65
CPU: Intel Core2 CPU T7200 @ 2.00GHz
Graphic Card: nVidia Quadro FX 350M
Driver: NVIDIA 270.41.06
OS: Linux i686 [openSUSE 11.4 (i586)] + KDE 4.6.00 (4.6.0) "release 6"

The problem started with:
Driver: NVIDIA 260.19.44
OS: Linux i586 [openSUSE 11.2 (i586)] + KDE 4.3.5
and were absent with:
Driver: NVIDIA 260.19.44
OS: Linux i586 [openSUSE 11.2 (i586)] + KDE 4.3.5

OpenSUSE Install :: Messed Up NVidia Driver After Upgrade

Jul 26, 2010

I did an upgrade of Nvidia(Latest version v.196) and KDE-base4 to KDE 4.4.4(I think) in Yast2. Now when I reboot the X doesnt start. I claim it can't find any nvidia-module. I thing the upgrade of Nvidia v.196 failed, so I need to know how to reinstall Nvidia in console(CLI). It only boot up in cli. I thought it is so simple to just download the latest driver and install in CLI, but my NetworkManager doesnt start eighter so I don't have any network.

OpenSUSE 11.2 64bits
KDE 4.4.x
Nvidia NV140 Quadro 512MB

I guess my mistake was to upgrade both KDE and Nvidia in the same operation.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Unity After Upgrade To 11.04 (NVidia Driver)

May 5, 2011

I was running 10.10 with an Nvidia Quadro FX1500 and was able to get the effects (Compiz) working after following the manual driver install (found here) and editing my xorg.conf file. After this upgrade, Xserver (my desktop) wouldn't even launch. It just kept going into a terminal for log in. Not bad - better than not being to do anything at all. I removed all my nvidia drivers

sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-*
and then created a new xorg.conf file (and later moved to /etc/X11) using

Xorg -configure

That now allows me to log in to my desktop. However - no Unity. I've read that some people have had luck with the Nvidia 173 drivers, but not here. When I downloaded the current nvidia driver for my card (Quadro FX 1500) from nvidia, and went to install it manually using (from the directory where the download is)

sudo sh

Eventually, it errors out with this: The compiler used to compile the kernel (gcc4.4) does not exactly match the current compiler (gcc4.5). For the record, I can't boot from a thumb drive ("boot error") or CD (both were created and tested on a Windows 7 machine.)

CentOS 5 :: Nvidia Driver Rebuild Necessary After (each) Kernel Upgrade?

Oct 6, 2010

I have an Nvidia graphics card,... actually I manage several workstations that run centos and have an nvidia video card. I also have a personal computer with ubuntu and an nvidia network card.

I would like to do a regular automatic update of those Centos workstations. (With a pilot group to test and then a full roll-out). Until oktober 2009 no major difference in automatic updating ubuntu and centos (apart from the differences between apt and yum):

After a kernel upgrade, the systems can not boot into it's Xorg gui, because the nvidia driver must be rebuild (=not recompiled, because this is partially object code, the driver is not opensource).

But from ubuntu 9.10 onwards, the kernel update process checks for the presence of propietary drivers like those of nvidia and does a rebuild on the reboot, so that the system can succesfully boot into the xorg GUI (and gdm or kdm) My question is: Are ther any plans for Centos to do the same, this would relief me from some upgrade hassle for the Centos workstations that I manage. Or does anyone know about a (good) automagic workaround?

Hardware :: Can't Install NVIDIA Proprietary Driver In Slackware 13.1

Oct 7, 2010

I've been trying to install the driver for my NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 in Slackware 13.1 with no success. I always get the same error report: the module you're trying to build does not match the kernel source or something like that. The result: unable to build module and the installation crashes.

I have tried to:set a custom kernel source path, install it with the slackbuilds driver and kernel, extract the contents and trying to compile it myself, find possibly conflicting drivers or modules, use different versions of the same driver (I've tried installing the versions 256.53, 256.44, 195.36.31 and 173.14.27)recompile the Linux kernel in an attempt to make sure that the tools used to build the kernel were the same used o build the module.

The only time I got a different error message was when I used the slackbuild packages. It built the 'nvidia.ko' module, but it didn't work. I got a version magic notice when booting and, when I tried to start x, a fatal error "no screens were found."

Just to be sure, I made a clean full install of Slackware (only added WICD to be able to download the drivers and ran slackpkg update and upgrade all) and tried again. It didn't work.

Slackware :: Succesfully Running 2.6.32 With The Proprietary NVIDIA Driver?

Dec 15, 2009

I've been trying to figure out the cause of system hangs with slack 13 for a a week or so. I get random total freezes with the keyboard LED's blinking at me and the only solution is to do a hard-reset. I was using a self-compiled kernel on 32bit Slack with similar results, but thought it had more to do with several bad starts as I got used to Slack's way of doing things... eventually I decided I'd made enough bad starts with that installation and after reading a bit about _current fixing some stability issues added another installation to my machine using Slackware64 and upgrading to _current. It worked great, then I installed the NVIDIA proprietary driver. The system hangs are back.

Sometimes they happen quickly, sometimes they take hours, sometimes while I'm working, sometimes when the machine has been idle for hours. For a couple of days I've been going back and forth between the NVIDIA propreitary and the nv driver. I've run memtest86 for 4.5 hours and not a single error, I'm running this on a new HD, I even upgraded the case fan (the old one was starting to complain!).

I've also installed different versions of the driver 185.x.x, 190.42.x. I've used slackbuilds, I've used "sh" I've said "yes" to everything the installer asked, I've said "no".

So far no hangs with the nv driver. I've been leaving one or the other running at all times and no hangs with the nv driver, but within hours with the proprietary driver.

All that is to say I'm confident the issue is with the NVIDIA proprietary driver, OR something in my kernel options that only shows up when I'm using the NVIDIA driver.

Is anyone else running this successfully?

SLACKWARE64 kernel 2.6.32 (same behavior on 32bit with compiled kernel with "make oldconfig" then "make localmodconfig" BEFORE the NVIDIA driver was installed. ext3 filesystem (same behavior with ext4 on previous installation)

Overall, I'm pretty happy with it, but it wants to default to 1280x1024 resolution and we prefer 1024x768 on our old 17" CRT monitor.

No matter what I do, though, it starts up in 1280x1024. We start X from runlevel 3 and go into KDE 4.3.1.

It is not difficult to change to 1024x768 using the Nvidia configuration utility, but then the menu fonts are HUGE -- especially in Thunderbird and Firefox.

Slackware :: Not Able To 'click' With Touchpad After Installing Nvidia Driver

Jan 2, 2011

After compiling the kernel and re-installing the Nvidia proprietary drivers, my touchpad has started to act strange; the cursor seems to glide a lot faster, yet more erratic and when I try to hover over an icon the cursor wont stay still, furthermore I lost the ability to 'click' on anything using just touchpad.

I have checked dmesg and Xorg.log for any clues, as well as removed everything with the exception of the card and device section from my xorg.conf. The issue has nothing to do with compiling the new kernel, as it was working perfect until I installed the Nvidia driver.

Slackware :: Proprietary Nvidia Driver Crashes - 13 X86_64

Jan 23, 2010

I'm having an issue where the proprietary nvidia driver seems to crash my system. the weird thing is that it only happens if i have already started an X session. here is what i mean. i don't use a display manager so i invoke X by running startx. now if i run it for the first time it starts no problem. but if i kill X with ctrl-alt-backspace and then try to run startx again it just hangs and the machine completely freezes up. this only happens with the proprietary nvidia driver. if i use the vesa driver it works fine. the open-source nvidia driver doesn't seem to support my card: GeForce GT220. i never had this problem with slackware 13 x86. i have tried using the 190.42 version from as well as the latest version from nvidia's site 190.53. aside from this problem it seems to work fine otherwise.

If I'm reading the aptitude output above correctly, it's telling me that the only way to "resolve" the conflict is by uninstalling all nvidia support, leaving me with no driver at all. Is that right?
