Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Failed To Load NVidia Kernel Module

Aug 8, 2010

My laptop broke beyond repair recently so I am stuck on a 6 year old hp pavilion zv5000 given to me by a friend and I thought I may as well give linux a go, I have been meaning to for years. I've installed xubuntu 10.04 as I heard it is less resource intensive than normal ubuntu but have been unable to configure the nvidia graphics card. I used the hardware drivers program which installed the nvidia accelerated graphics driver 96 (which was the recommended version) and then ran sudo nvidia-xconfig as instructed and got

Code:
Warning: Unable to locate/open X configuration file.
New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'

Which I presume means it worked correctly, but whenever I try to boot I get a message saying "failed to load nvidia kernel module", at which point I either have to restore the generic configuration or just start the session in low graphics mode. I have googled the problem and in a lot of peoples cases it seems to be linked to upgrading from a previous version whilst mine was a fresh install. I tried sudo modprode and it says the nvidia module isn't present. I tried installing the packages in synaptic which mentioned nvidia kernel modules but still no luck.

Ubuntu :: NVIDIA: Failed To Load The NVIDIA Kernel Module?

Aug 31, 2010

I spent quite a lot of time jumping from one thread to another trying to fix a problem with my NVIDIA drivers in Lucid. I was getting the error message on startup: NVIDIA: Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module ...Failed to load module "nvidia" (module-specific error, 0) No drivers available".

After a lot of trial and error, this is what worked for me (I have updated this thread following [URL]):

- Download the latest NVIDIA driver from www.nvidia.com/page/drivers.html

- In the terminal cd to the directory where you downloaded the driver package (e.g., $ cd Downloads)and make it executable (e.g., $ sudo chmod +x ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-256.53.run)

- Edit blacklist.conf $ gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

and add the following lines to the end of the file:

#recommended by http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1467074
blacklist vga16fb
blacklist nouveau
blacklist rivafb

Ubuntu :: Failed To Load NVIDIA Kernel Module?

May 11, 2010

My nvidia graphics driver was updated last night, and since then I've been unable to get into Gnome without resorting to low graphics mode. I have extensive knowledge of Windoze systems. Upon boot up, I get the following error:

(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration

I've tried some troubleshooting, including attempting to uninstall all nvidia drivers and reinstall (via synaptic).

Administration->Hardware Drivers reports that version 173 is installed loaded and active. Nvidia X Server Settings (nvidia-settings) gives me the "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server." error.

I've tried the nvidia-xconfig (both with gdm up and down) and it hasn't made any difference.

Oh, it's a GeForce 6200 wwith two Dell E193FPp monitors running on Ubuntu 10.04.

Here's my xorg.conf:

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder75) Fri Mar 12 01:42:27 PST 2010

Software :: Failed To Load NVIDIA Kernel Module

Nov 26, 2010

So I just recently got my proprietary driver working yesterday (and enjoyed too many hours of Starcraft 2 afterwards) but today after I downloaded an Update Package and rebooted, it's telling me that it "Filed to load NVIDIA kernel module".So now I'm back to square one, I had to restart in the lower graphics mode or whatever it's called prior to logging in.When I go to System - Admin - Hardware Drivers, nothing shows up and it says no proprietary drivers are in use on this system.

When I try to change the resolution under System - Preferences - Monitors (since everything is so big) I get "It appears that your graphics driver does not support the necessary extensions to use this tool. Do you want to use your graphics driver vendor's tool instead?" I select "Yes" and I get "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server."I'm a total loss here, I'm assuming something from the update package has caused everything to go haywire and I'm hoping that if/when I get this fixed I don't have to keep doing this fix every time I use the Update Manager.I'm still fairly new to this whole Ubuntu thing, so any step-by-step instructions would be appreciated

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Failed To Load Nvidia Kernel Module In Lucid

Oct 15, 2010

I am running my PC on Lucid. It has been working fine, but suddenly the other day I got an error message when booting, saying that Nvidia kernel module failed to load. I had to boot in low graphics mode. The only thing i can think of that had changed is that I had recently upgraded to latest Linux kernel 2.6.36-25.I have tried carefully following tips on numerous threads on this forum and others, but still no go. I have purged nvidia drivers and reinstalled nvidia-current (also tried nvidia-glx-185). However, when I then do <sudo modprobe nvidia>, I get this message:

WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/lrm-vide, it will be ignored in a future release.
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be ignored in a future release.
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/bad_list, it will be ignored in a future release.

[code]....

When I go to System>Administration>Hardware Divers, it shows Nvidia-current as present but not currently activated.I have blacklisted vga16fb and nouveau in blacklist.conf, done <sudo nvidia-xconfig> etc.I am at a loss as what to do next, and am still new enough to Linux to not be in a position to fiddle to try fix it myself.

i just recently upgraded to Ubuntu. I also just installed the Nvidia 256.53 drivers for my gtx 460. I did that and it worked fine. But the other day i did some updates that were prompted to me on the desktop. So i did those, then i restart and i got "Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module." It then asked if i wanted to run in nvidia low graphics mode, which i did. So i am currently trying to figure out how to fix my NVIDIA drivers so that i have 1920x1080.

Debian :: Failed To Load Kernel Module

Jun 23, 2015

I'vd a problem with loading modules. Booting gives the this error:

Code: Select alllucas@debian8-1:~$ systemctl --failed
  UNIT                         LOAD   ACTIVE SUB    DESCRIPTION
● systemd-modules-load.service loaded failed failed Load Kernel Modules

LOAD   = Reflects whether the unit definition was properly loaded.
ACTIVE = The high-level unit activation state, i.e. generalization of SUB.
SUB    = The low-level unit activation state, values depend on unit type.

[Code] ....

Always the same error when booting. After a period of time, (Graphical User Interface) the mouse click no longer operates, also text input isn't possible.

I had no access to the system at all, even crt alt F1 stopped working, also text input was no't possible. so reinstall was the only option. Maybe there is a connection with this two errors.

I've reinstalled Debian 8 several times. Still, both errors stay.

The same happend again (in the GUI) is nothing possible, no txt input, no mouse click), but now I have access to the system, ctr/alt F1 is working.

Ubuntu :: ERROR: Unable To Load The Kernel Module Nvidia.ko

May 16, 2010

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:

Quote: sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

blacklist vga16fb
blacklist nouveau

blacklist nvidiafb
blacklist rivatv

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Keep Getting 'Failed To Initialize NVIDIA Kernel Module'

Oct 3, 2010

Every time I start up my Ubuntu 10.04 install, instead of the graphical login screen, I get an error dialog stating the following:

Code:
Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode. The following error was encountered. You may need to update your configuration to solve this.
Also in the dialog are several lines of text:

Code:
(EE) <date and time> 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. ***Aborting*** Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.I'm not sure what it means by "kernel log," or where any error logs might be saved. Any tips? Perhaps if I can find such error logs, posting them will help diagnose the problem.

If it matters, I have 2 monitors, an NEC AccuSync 120 CRT and a Samsung BX2440X LCD. I use them in Xinerama mode with the Nvidia drivers under my Ubuntu 9.10 install and have no problems there. To get normal graphics under 10.04, I have to start up in low-graphics mode, kill X server, reinstall the Nvidia proprietary drivers, and restart the X server. Then I have to do it all over again after the next restart, every time I want to run 10.04.It's very annoying.Also possibly relevant: I use the latest 32-bit Nvidia drivers for 10.04, version 256.53.I've found a few other threads where people had problems similar to this, but nothing exactly like my situation nor any real resolution so far. I hope it can be fixed, because there are other things about 10.04 that I really like.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Failed To Initialize NVIDIA Kernel Module

Aug 17, 2010

I have had this error for way too long. This post will be done in parts. I've had it for months now and I'd like to solve it. Every suggestion on linux forums, ubuntu forums, or some XYZ-linux blog seems to either work for just one boot or none at all. since I have updated my kernel on several occasions, I have also re-installed my NVIDIA kernel module by downloading the run file from NVIDIA's website. It also follows instructions from this post. I have installed the linux header files and the xorg-dev files from repository
I have also tried this.

My hardware (Alienway m17x - VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT200 [GeForce GTX 260M])

Code:

CentOS 5 :: Can't Install Nvidia Drivers (Unable To Load The Kernel Module "nvidia.ko")?

Jul 28, 2009

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

Ubuntu / Apple :: Error - Failed To Initialize The NVIDIA Kernel Module

May 1, 2010

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.

Quote:

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?

This problem has bothered me in both my previous install of 10.04 and my current one. Intermittently, booting into ubuntu results in ubuntu running in low-graphics mode, informing me that the Nvidia kernel module has failed to initialize.Running nvidia-xconfig does not help. Removing and then reinstalling the nvidia driver in Hardware drivers does not help. I experience the issue with both the 173 and current drivers.I love ubuntu, but this is making me seriously consider exploring other distros. Perhaps this not a bad thing - after I return from this exploration,

Debian Hardware :: Video Card - Failed To Initialize NVidia Kernel Module

Aug 9, 2011

I am trying to get my Debian system running. I have an older Dell Precision 490 with two dual core CPUs. It has 16G Ram, an 150G Intel solid state drive, a 230G data drive, and a 600G backup drive. I have two Samsung monitors attached to the NVIDIA Geforce FX 5xx card. I have been using this machine for several years with Etch, then Lenny, running KDE 3.5. I recently needed to upgrade to Squeeze and KDE4 and have had nothing but problems since. I keep having issues with the video drivers, every time I touch anything the drivers seem to upgrade from the legacy 173 to the current 195.

There have been other library compatibility issues as well (gclib) and the machine has not been stable. This morning the system was running very slowly with X running at 100% (from top) and then the entire system froze. After a hard reboot, X did restart. The Xorg.0.log has the following message:
"Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module! Please ensure that there is a supported NVIDIA GPU in this system, and that the NVIDIA device files have been created properly..."

Fedora :: Error "Failed To Load Module "nvidia" (module-specific Error,0) No Drivers Available

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.

OpenSUSE Install :: Failed To Load Module "fglrx" (module Does Not Exist, 0)

I've installed openSuse 11.4 server-mode (text only) on my desktop, and I'm trying to configure IceWM so i'll eventually have it set up so it always boots into text only mode, but I could be able to quickly start icewm via the command line.using Yast, I installed the Xorg server, and icewm.when I type X, the screen goes black and it just doesn't seem to do anythingI found if I hit ctrl+alt+f1 it kinda puts me back into text only mode, but I can't put in commands anymore. The last thing it says on the screen is:

Failed to load module "fglrx" (module does not exist, 0)

I've goggled that error message and the discussions that popped up around it made no sense to me at all. I've never configured X from scratch before, can someone point me towards a tutorial or something?

Debian :: Nvidia Module Sometimes Won't Load

Jul 25, 2010

I'm fairly new to Debian, but during the past I've used Mandrake, Slackware and Ubuntu. Few months ago I've migrated from Ubuntu to Debian - I like it a lot but there is one thing which keeps bugging me.Sometimes - one of the few boots - nvidia module won't load and GDM won't start. During the "bad" boot system freezes for a while after the message "PME# disabled" and gives the message about nvidia GPU not supported. Because of that GDM fails to start.Below are the boot logs (without the leading time for easy diff comparison) - the "bad log" when nvidia fails to load and the "good log" when everything is OK. Any help?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Module Won't Load / Make It Possible?

Jul 23, 2010

This nvidia driver is driving me nuts... I have tried everything I can think of including multiple solutions from threads.

I have a GeForce FX5200 with the nvidia-current drivers installed. On boot I receive the following error messages... code...

If I try and open the nvidia server settings I get the following message.

You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.

In Jockey I get:

The driver is activated but not currently in use.

I am using headers 2.6.32-23 and have updated to grub2 (something that seems to have fixed a mismatched header issue for others). I have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, edited the xorg.conf with nvidia-xconfig as well as manually and I don't know what else to do... any suggestions would be appreciated... 640x480 is crap.
