Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Get Gdm Working After Nvidia Driver Install

Nov 1, 2010

I recently downloaded and installed Ubuntu 10.10. I thought it was awesome...still do. OK, the problem is i was prompted to install some proprietary drivers and so i did but thats when the problems started. After reboot i couldn't get the GUI or gdm (not sure what to refer it to) to work. It goes directly to a terminal screen every time so i actually reinstalled Ubuntu and tried installing the drivers all different ways but no luck. i also can get into recovery mode and do low graphics. the driver version im trying to get working is nvidia 260.19.12. my graphics card is a geforce 7 series cant remember the number i have a 32bit processor.

Ubuntu Networking :: Internet Not Working After Nvidia Driver Install?

May 5, 2011

I'm trying to create a flash drive that I can use on my laptop to boot into ubuntu. I followed the instructions on the download page to create le usb drive and was successful.My problem is that whenever i install my nvidia drivers, my internet completely stops working. Both wired and wireless work fine on a fresh install. I can reboot and try again and they both still work. While installing the nvidia drivers however they both stop working, and upon a reboot they still aren't working. I can connect via my desktop and my phone to the same access point i'm trying to go through on my laptop, so the problem is isolated to my laptop.

Ubuntu Installation :: NVidia Driver - Cannot Install Kernel (No Access)

Jul 18, 2010

I've been trying to install the latest driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-256.35.run. I do ctrl+alt+f1 and login, then sudo sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-256.35.run and it gives me the license agreement, but after I accept and right after it gets to 100% it says it can't install the kernel or access or whatever. Has anyone done this installation and had the same problem but figured it out??

Ubuntu Installation :: Install NVidia Driver Via Additional Hardware GUI

Nov 9, 2010

I've seen may similar issues to mine, but some are different and others are identical, but have been resolved since in the repositories. I install Maverick from CD, reboot, update via update manager, reboot, install nVidia driver via additional hardware gui, reboot and I can't get into X, I get tty1 instead with a text login prompt.

dmesg tells me:
Code:
nvidia: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -1
purging nvidia-* and deleting /etc/X11/xorg.conf means that I can get back into X, but without any hardware drivers.
I have both an onboard and PCI-E nVidia graphics adapters but my PCI-E one is primary.

Debian Installation :: How To Install Driver For Non-nVidia Chipset

Sep 19, 2015

I've often installed Debian Netinstall and added the nVidia driver for my monitors. I just purchased a new PC that has this as part of its description:AMD A4-5000 APU with Radeon(TM) HD Graphics..I have monitors connected to both its analog and digital outputs. Larger distros have enabled a good video driver automatically, but I need to know how to do this for my Debian Netinstall partition. The video performance is horribly slow right now.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Nvidia Driver Install Causes System Reboot Crash

Nov 3, 2010

This was my first experience with Ubuntu, I was told to switch the hard drives on my computer and put the Windows drive in a safe place for the install. The first time I did the install on the hard drive (which was the clean second hard drive that came with my computer), I either didn't realize I believe I didn't realize I had to click a button and thought the install had gotten stuck, and therefore cut off the install midway through. The second time around the install went without a hitch, and I was able to boot to desktop once. There, I was notified that I needed/should install NVIDIA drivers, I believe version 173 was listed as the next most recent drives (the other was "current"), I have an NVIDIA GeForce 7350LE graphics card, and after installing the drivers, I went to the restart menu as directed and clicked restart, not shut down but restart, and there were several listed errors on the text/DOS screen, shutdown errors I believe (the errors were 5 digits and were something like 56759 or something like that, I can't be certain if I'm remembering right, though, but there were two errors going over again). I then proceeded to turn off the computer manually, and upon it coming on again, instead of the normal Ubuntu flash screen before login, a more choppy Ubuntu 10.10 screen popped up and it led me to the DOS mode, where I was able to login, but it did me no good because I don't know command logic for Ubuntu. The best I did (its the best I ever do when these things happen) is get menus to pop up that are basically useless. I turned the computer off and on again three times, and tried booting directly from disk, but that failed.

I'm actually using the same computer I just reinserted the Windows drive back in after the frustrating experience. Windows has been giving me problems itself, and I really wanted to switch to Ubuntu but I need to know that this is a fluke and not the norm. I can live with this sort of thing being so uncommon I must have did something that was very strange and out of the ordinary to my computer. But if its commonplace, I want to know that too, because that's just something I can't live with.

Ubuntu Installation :: Black Screen Boot-up After NVidia Driver Install?

Nov 8, 2010

I realize that many have had the issue of getting a black screen when booting up. I'm posting because I've tried a couple fixes that I read after doing a search and haven't had any luck yet. I have the 64-bit 10.04 installed on my netbook and my issue surfaced after installing the current nVidia accelerated graphics driver. Following the install ubuntu now boots to a black screen and nothing more. 'nomodeset' only allows me to boot ubuntu in low-graphics mode (which I'm in now) and this fix hasn't produced a solution either: [URL]..64&postcount=9 My netbook has nVidia ION2 graphics with an integrated as well as a discreet graphics card (Intel GMA3150 and NVIDIA GT21

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Updating NVidia Driver Not Working, Tried Manual, Not Working?

Sep 18, 2010

I installed it on a Dell Inspiron 531 with the GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 built in video card. From the recommend driver list I installed �NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current) [Recommended

Well, turns out it should not have been recommended. I had restarted and all I got was a low res ubuntu logo and a boot right into a full screen terminal. Tried startx and got a no screens found, I look online for about an hour last night and decided to just reinstall, which takes a couple hours when installing all the packages.

I have done more research today and found to install the latest linux x64 driver from nVidias website, which I did, but it does not run. I followed some more instructions and it said to do a �sudo chmod +x <file>� which I did, and it starts to open and I get �You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing.�

I�m starting to get a little frustrated here, guess I�m just used to a lot of the ease of windows and assumed that something like installing a graphics card driver would be easy.

Installation :: Unable To Install Nvidia Driver After Using Dd To Copy Drive?

Sep 25, 2009

I was recently able to obtain a new laptop at work. Rather than reinstalling the OS, reconfiguring all of the software, and then copying over all of my data from my old laptop -- I decided to try to use dd to clone my drive. It worked pretty darn well (thanks Saikee!). However, I have two problems that I have noticed so far:

1) The system does not seem to offer me the option to install the proprietary nvidia driver. I was able to manually install the nvidia-glx-180 package and then edit xorg.conf appropriately and I'm running with the nvidia driver now. So this problem is resolved (though I still find it odd it didn't even offer my the "restricted hardware drivers" option in System -> Administration).

2) Wireless is not working. I checked dmesg and it doesn't seem to have any errors in it. Here is a list of things I have checked/found which I think might be relevant:

- Oddly enough it seems that my wired device always gets renamed from eth0 to eth1, and my wireless device gets renamed from wlan0 to wlan1. I'm not sure why (though I would prefer them to be eth0 and wlan0).

- dmesg output looks good shows some message about the wlan1 link not being ready

Code:

bmayes@bdmlin:~$ dmesg | grep wlan
[ 10.915831] udev: renamed network interface wlan0 to wlan1
[ 185.179556] bridge-wlan0: peer interface wlan0 not found, will wait for it to come up
[ 185.179559] bridge-wlan0: attached

Fedora :: Install F15 Without Nouveau To Make Nvidia Driver Installation Easier?

Can this be done similar to some other O/Ses so Nouveau doesn't pre-screw up the kernel for 3rd party drivers??? Would be great in F16 if we were given a choice re: wanting nouveau or not. I simply can not get F14 or F15 to work with the 270.xx drivers on recent equipment.

Ubuntu :: NVIDIA Driver Stopped Working No 3D Acceleration?

Aug 23, 2010

My problem started with the following post.[URL]I ended up tracing the issue back to openGL that disappeared during an update and the nvidia driver had broken. The only remaining issue is that the 3D acceleration on the NVIDIA (GeForce 8600 GT) card will not activateURL]hich I have done many times now. I am now on the nvidia-173 driver as that one seems to be working the best. Even the nvidia-settings is having trouble and crashes when I try to look at the OPENGL/GLX information.I have found many instances of jockey showing that the driver is "active but not in use" which is what I am seeing. The problem is that the 3D acceleration is not working and the issue seems to be the driver.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Upgraded To 10.10 - Nvidia Driver Are Not Working

I upgraded to 10.10 from 10.04, and I noticed that the nvidia driver are not working all well as they did before.

Although I get the nvidia logo when X starts, the 3d part does not work well. For example using mplayer -vo gl does not work anymore. When I type glxinfo I get the x error of failed request badwindow message. More anonyingly flash will crash when going to fullscreen.

The 2d part of the drivers seem fine because xvinfo and -vo xv works fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Closed NVIDIA Driver Not Working / Solve This?

Feb 12, 2011

I'm trying to get a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 working with the closed Nvidia driver, as I would like to get the HDMI output working.

I have a Sony Vaio VPCCW18FX, with a Nvidia GT 230M graphics card. The open source nouveau driver works fine, but does not run smoothly. The only problem here is that it's needed to run with "nomodeset".

If i just activate the Proprietary Nvidia driver and reboot, it will hang after writing "Checking battery State [ok]". I have tried to add EDID from Windows partition, and here it hangs at a blank black/grey screen. I have tried hooking up an external display, no output on it either.

General :: Nvidia Driver Is Not Working After Using A Self Compiled Kernel (2.6.38)?

Mar 19, 2011

About a month ago, I decided to go deeper in my Linux knowledge. I've been reading a lot and found out that Arch linux would be my learning distro. As I was installing Arch, it was a pain at first but I really learned a lot which I would never ever learn with Mint. Now I decided to take a step further is which "compiling your own kernel".

MY PROBLEM:

Everything was smooth in my Arch for a 2 weeks until I decided to compile my own kernel. I currently have a Nvidia GTX 460 1GB card.

BTW, the method I used to install nvidia with 2.6.37 was

Code:
pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils
and that worked with all of the .37 kernels (-1 -2 -3 -4) which was download from kernel.org.

When I compiled the .38 (using the same .config of .37), it just boots up to the terminal (not loading gdm). However, I could still login by typing my username and password. So I've checked dmesg of both .37 and .38 and noticed that the Nvidia driver is not loaded in .38.

I tried reinstall it by running pacman and it doesn't do anything. It was thinking of uninstalling nvidia and nvidia-utils but there are so many dependencies conflicts (like screensaver, compiz, etc).

Since, I didn't want to mess up my .37 install, I just grabbed an old HDD and installed from scratch again. This time, I compiled the .38 kernel first (without gui) and then installed nvidia nvidia-utils. It was the same problem.

With this observation, I'm concluding that the nvidia and nvidia-utils from pacman is not compatible with .38.

I've read that I have to wait for nvidia to release a driver that will be compatible with the .38 kernel. Is that true? Does it mean I have to wait for nvidia/nvidia-utils to be updated from pacman? How would I know when it is updated?

I've also read about nouveau, but I guess that is not for me because it doesn't support 3D.

Is there a work around for me to use nvidia/nvidia-utils with .38?

Is nvidia and nvidia-utils proprietary drivers? What is the difference with these two and the one you download directly from nvidia?

First of all, I apologize for the bombardment of questions. As you can tell, I'm so clueless on how nvidia drivers work on linux in general (since it was spoon fed by mint) and I really would love to learn about this is a deeper level. Could someone please explain to me (LAYMANS terms) how nvidia works (and possibly a solution to my issue).

EDIT: Additional info - I have a netbook that also runs arch. It uses an Intel GMA integrated video chip which I used "xf86-video-intel" from pacman and I believe since it is open source, it works with .38 fine. So does that mean if you use an open source driver, it will work with all other kernels?

Debian Configuration :: Nvidia Driver Resolution Setting Not Working

Jun 5, 2011

I have installed the Nvidia drivers on my desktop using [URL] according to the Debian way. Everything seems to be fine except the resolution. The best it will let me choose is something like 600x480. I have searched and most of what is suggested around the web is to change xorg.conf. I have tried this using different setting suggested but nothing is working. I did not have a xorg.conf file so I created one with the setting suggested on the Debian wiki.

Debian Multimedia :: NVidia Driver Not Working With External Monitor?

Mar 15, 2010

I have a Dell XPS M1330, which has a GeForce 8400M GS GPU. The binary (sigh) nVidia driver installed is version 190.53 (installed by sgfxi). This is working well: glxgears gives me about 2600 FPS and compiz is happy.An old Philips 170B is attached by VGA cable. I was looking to set up a method of switching resolution upon connecting to the monitor when working at the desk, since I don't like the 1280x800 resolution of the laptop.

nfortunately, I can't get any output on the external monitor. It does work under Ubuntu, which installed the 180 series binary driver. (Going to an earlier driver is an option, but I want to understand the problem.) Bottom line, I want to work under Debian.As far as I know, nVidia's proprietary driver doesn't support xrandr. At any rate, with he external 170B monitor attached and turned on, I get the following:$ xrandr -qScreen 0: minimum 320 x 175, current 1280 x 800, maximum 1280 x 800default connected 1280x800+0+0 0mm x 0mm

1280x80050.0*
1024x76851.052.0
960x540 53.0
