I'm trying to install the drivers for my nvidia graphics card. I downloaded the shell script from the nvidia website. However, there's something peculiar going on. When I execute the shell script it says it cannot find my kernel headers, yet I can verify that my /usr/include/linux/kernel.h does exist. I have selinux on, but just installed os with it on, so contexts are fresh. Checked them as well. After doing some research I found something out. When I run a 'uname -a' I get this.
Code: Linux ariel 2.6.18-194.el5PAE #1 SMP Fri Apr 2 15:37:44 EDT 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux Yet when I ran 'yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers' they installed the following versions. Code: kernel-headers-2.6.18-238.12.1.el5.i386 kernel-devel-2.6.18-238.12.1.el5.i686 Shouldn't they be
I see that the error in the nvidia shell script can't locate the header files for the RUNNING kernel version which makes sense. Why would yum install that version instead of the one in 'uname -a'? Or am I misunderstanding something?
I want to install a new graphics card, Nvidia Geforce 9400 GT, into my system running Fedora 12, x86_64.
* Should I install the hardware into the system first? * Or should I download the proper drivers and install them first, before hardware? * Do I need to disable or remove drivers for my integrated graphics card (Integrated NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE graphics) before I do anything?
I have just installed Kubuntu 9.10 in my laptop and it did not ditected my Nvidia 8400 M GS graphics Card I downloaded a driver file NVIDIA-Linux.x86-19042-pkg1.run to install drivers but when i run it it shows the error error:you appear to be running X server, please exit X before installing.
i am running 10.04 64 bit and did an update today and now i do not have any graphics card drivers and my virtual box is not working at all i have tried to reinstall the drivers through the hardware drivers and get told i have to look at the installation of this driver failed.
have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log
and when i try to open my virtual box i get
Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Server 08. Failed to open/create the internal network 'HostInterfaceNetworking-eth0' (VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND). Failed to attach the network LUN (VERR_SUPDRV_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND).
i have to at least get some info off the virtual box
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10, and it seems I'm unable to get the drivers for my graphics card. I know they exist, as I've downloaded them before (I switched back to Windows for a short period. Bad idea there. :/), and I know they work fine, but when I go to "System > Administration > Hardware Drivers" (where I've always gotten them from), they aren't there.
The only difference between this install and my old one, is that I used a USB drive to install, instead of a disk (I had run out).
Although I did have to change to boot order in the BIOS to get it to boot into the drive, I don't think that's the issue.
I have a Sapphire HD4850 X2 1G GDDR3 PCI-E graphis card, and presently I ruin a Windows 7 OS, but am moving to Ubuntu GUI Desktop, and was wandering where I could get Linux drivers for this card (and they are NOT available from the Sapphire site), or how I could get Windows drivers to work with this card, I do have 4 monitors using this card so I need the drivers and ability to use 4 monitors.
When I start ubuntu I get a black screen, I can't do anything, this started when I installed the new driver for my graphics card. I don't know what to do. I have a i7 core (64-bit) and nvidia GTX 260 (twice).
We are going to buy notebooks for our company and as Nvidia graphic card drivers are proprietary I would like to avoid them and support a graphics card company that offers free open source license for their graphics card drivers. Are there any such companies? ATI?
I have a problem with starting ubuntu 10.10, I changed my graphics card from an ATI card to a Nivida card a week or so ago (Machine has dual boot). I've sort out the windows install, but cant get into ubuntu to update the drivers. It boots as far as console but just leaves me with the text screen. How do I update the drivers from there or get a basic console screen to come up so I can update?
How to install this Nvidia Geforce 8800 driver. I've been told that the installation files I got will do everything - it doesn't. I've been told about some kind of xorg.conf file that doesn't exist- xorg.conf-vesa does though, I assume that's vesa drivers and theres something else for other drivers.
Completely new to Ubuntu, basically never used anything but Windows before, hadn't even had a chance to properly test out Ubuntu before I broke it. So, sorry if this question is very easy...or if I'm posting it in the wrong place...
Anyway, I cleverly installed the most recent drivers for my graphics card, and it killed Ubuntu - it won't start now. This happens on Windows, too, but Windows will System Restore for me. How might I fix this in Ubuntu?
I can choose Ubuntu from the grub menu, but then the screen goes blank, the fan on my computer goes into overdrive, and nothing happens.
Am currently running my Karmic Koala from LiveCD...
I'm going about my ways to get my drivers installed for my graphics card, but the page I'm using, URL>..has me apt-get install "nvidia-kernel-common".Synaptic says it doesn't exist, and it appears to be a pretty important package to have. So is there a way for somebody to get that online for me to install?
I have a cheapo Nvidea motherboard and an ATI 5700 graphics card. I wanted to know if there is a simple way to ensure that OS11.3 is using the ATI graphics card and radeonhd drivers instead of the Nvidea hareware+drivers. Is it necessary to blacklist the Nvidea drivers? Is there a simple YAST fix?
how to enable the Gnome Shell with an AMD 6950 graphics card and the default Fedora 15 drivers? I may try the AMD Catalyst proprietary drivers but from history those usually lag behind the Fedora versions. I also read some people had issues with the current AMD Catalyst drivers in the Catalyst guide thread.
Also, the AMD 6950 graphics card fan is at full speed all the time in Fedora 15. I do believe you can with the Catalyst drivers using aticonfig but was wondering about the default Fedora 15 drivers?
i have a little experience with ubuntu but i have had bugs that are not resolvable at this time in ubuntu. so instead of giving wild bill back my pc i am looking for a new distro. my concerns with ubuntu revolve around acpi. no fan control and high temp. the 2nd problem that is almost overlookable is the ata1 softreset error. it usually is no problem but occasionally have to do manual fsck to fix. so heres my laptop specs. toshiba a305d-s6848. amd turion x2 ati x1250 integrated. 3gb ram. 500gb hd vista and ubuntu 9.04 dual boot grub with 100gb ubuntu and the rest vista. so q1= what suse version would be best?
q2= is suse's acpi better? ubuntu runs all features but fan control q3= is suse as easy to install? or harder q4= ati graphics i know for my card went to legacy what version still has the ati drivers for my card q5= is suse easier or harder to work with and get everything working.
i know no linux is or opsys is perfect. im just looking for one that is stable and works the pc correctly. i know its a big thing to ask. i know no one can tell me that. but just looking for suggestions. im thinking of downloading suse and does all the downloads support live sessions.
I've lost my GUI while attempting to install the latest ATI proprietary driver. I followed their instructions on how to uninstall it but it didn't give me my GUI back. How do I get back to the default drivers that came with my installation? I have a Radeon 3850.
Booting into safe mode doesn't give me a GUI.
I want to try to reinstall the ATI proprietary drivers eventually. I have them on the hard drive, but I have had no luck installing them using the CLI so far.
Okay first off I'm a noob with Ubuntu. I've been trying to get Warcraft 3 and WoW to run on ubuntu via Wine, so far I managed to get them installed and running but I always have problems with graphics (poor rendering as oposed to when I ran them on windows). So I figured that maybe the graphics card/driver aren't installed correctly.
On the terminal I got this information: Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) I checked System > Administration > Additional Drivers When it finishes searching for drivers I get the message "No proprietary drives are in use on this system" (I have no idea what this means, I read elsewhere that I should check this) So um, I don't know If any of this is useful or necessary to fix my problem.
I have an old machine running Ubuntu 9.10 and XP.t is a P4 and Nvidia FX5200 card.Yesterday all of a sudden the screen started flashing black, the same type as when you install new graphics drivers and the resolution is changing. Only here it keeps happening over and over, the mouse isn't usable fully, the icons and menus are distorted, and I basically can't do anything.
I ended up reinstalling 9.10 and everything was working fine until I installed EnvyNG to get my nVidia drivers. It required a restart, and once I logged in the same thing started happening. So I said screw this, and installed 8.04. Yet even in 8.04, once I used EnvyNG to install the drivers, the same thing happened.A few other detailsP works fine, although one time a similar thing happened on XP (not as bad), and was fixed with a reboot.- This PC runs through a KVM switch, but I connected it directly and the same thing happens.I've found no help via Google. Sounds like a possible hardware problem, but it seems to work fine in XP and only acts up in Ubuntu once I install drivers.
I ran the wubi installer for kubuntu on my computer running a Windows 7 64 bit OS. When I boot my computer up I can go with either windows or kubuntu. I boot up kubuntu and an image of the kde logo appears. Then the computer shows a garbled mix of multi-colored pixels in no distinguishable pattern, yet the mouse is visible and still movable.
Installed Ubuntu 11.04 but i don't know how to install my nvidia 7200 gs graphics card. in the previous versions (ubuntu 9.10) it installed very easly.. But in Natty 11.04, while i am try to install my driver it fails 2 times and after installation (reboot) ubuntu freezes and not working So reinstalled ubuntu 11.04.
I have a Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2 motherboard with integrated graphics that shows up on lspci as an ATI Radeon 2100. I also bought a PCI-Express Nvidia graphics card so I could use the VDPAU feature on Linux (plays H.264 in hardware). The BIOS has three settings about which display to initialize first:
I cannot get anything, not even a splash screen or POST messages, to emerge from the PCI-Express graphics card. (I'm using a DVI connector; the card also has an HDMI output.)I cannot get the kernel lspci to see the graphics card; the only VGA controller it acknowledges is the integrated one.Running dmidecode acknowledges the existence of an x16 PCI Express slot, and it says
Current usage: Unknown
There is an additional BIOS setting called "Internal Graphics Mode" which is normally set to "Auto" which means it is supposed to prefer a PCI Express VGA card. I set it to "Disabled" which now means I'm getting no output at all. I will soon be learning how to do a BIOS reset!
Other information: The PCI-E card is a MSI N210-MD512H GeForce 210. This is a fanless card. Although there are no fans to see turning, the heat sink on the PCI-E card is definitely getting hot, so the card is getting some sort of power.It gets all its power from the PCI-E slot; there is no external power connector.The BIOS is an AMI Award BIOS.how can I make the PCI Express graphics card visible to Ubuntu?
I was looking to get glx to work with direct rendering. So i installed the nvidia drivers from the openSuSe Sight. I installed because /var/log/Xorg.O.log Said that the Nvidia card was not loaded. Long story short looks like the card is loaded but X windows... I guess GLX is not running and neither is Opengl. I still have output to the monitor. here is
I have unfortunately found myself unable to properly boot up openSUSE because I decided to buy the Acer Aspire with the i5 Processor.
I have the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD (GMA HD) graphics card, and unfortunately from all my searching online and on openSUSE, I have been unable to find a driver for this that works for linux, and in addition I don't know how to install a driver outside of a GUI.
My openSUSE boots up to the boot choosing screen (regular openSUSE or failsafe), and then that nice list of functions being done is displayed, but as soon as the daemon has started, suddenly my screen goes blank and I am unable to do anything about it. Beyond this point, my OS loses all functionability, and while I can hear it computing, I am unable to actually tell WHAT it is computing. get a driver for this and to install this driver and get this GUI running, that would be great.
I have a z9 volari Graphics card that opensuse 1.2 is recognising but the xgi driver is not present. I get the following when I startx:
auth: creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.4650
X.Org X Server 1.6.5 Release Date: 2009-10-11 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 Build Operating System: openSUSE SUSE LINUX
Perhaps my last post about this was too long and hence why nobody responded. So i will try and keep it simple and let the experts advise me.
I have tried installing an rpm that I got from rpm search. Namely xorg-x11-driver-video-xgi-1.5.0-6.1.i586 which seemed to install but when I did a query it said it was not installed, but when I tried to do an install again it said it was already installed ??
There is also a file called xserver-xorg-video-sis_0.9.3.orig.tar.gz which i got from this site. I have not managed to extract it properly yet but will look into that myself. It appears to have in it a makefile, so I presume it is source files and I could really do with some help in that.
