Ubuntu Installation :: NVidia 8600GT - Start In (Tty1) Login Console Mode

Dec 17, 2010

I tried most methods suggested on many sites to install drivers
## through the additional driver panel only
## through the Nvidia.run file I downloaded
## through the terminal using apt-get

All failed to start ubuntu gui it takes me to the console login and I noticed it says "saned disabled" edit /etc/..something. This problem made me install ubuntu again three times and every time I activate the driver then install the driver Nvidia.run or through apt-get and both leads to a black screen tty1 login. So what to do now I installed and removed many things and I won't reinstall ubuntu again. Also I typed compiz and this came on:

root@ubuntu:/home/sherbieny# compiz
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":1.0".
compiz (core) - Fatal: Root visual is not a GL visual
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :1.0
Launching fallback window manager. I want to install properly so that I can start normally and enable the extra visual effects and the custom effects. Please elaborate the steps clearly

New Info:
When I enter nvidia-settings : server X opens and says
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. When I enter nvidia-xconfig as root and restart nothing happens and when I enter:
nvidia-detector it says none
and when I enter: nvidia-smi

Error: API mismatch: the NVIDIA kernel module has version 260.19.21, but this NVIDIA driver component has version 260.19.29. Please make sure that the kernel module and all NVIDIA driver components have the same version.
Failed to allocate an RM client
Could not allocate resources!
root@ubuntu:/home/sherbieny# apt-get update kernel
E: The update command takes no arguments

A new and very exciting error everyone now also the windows 7 that I have besides linux has also crashed and cannot open the login window. I don't know whats happening all I know is that few hours ago I logged in to windows normally now I cannot login to either one of them and the funny part is: I'm working on my thesis on this computer and I cannot work anymore and I'm supposed to meet with the professor on monday.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 (Tty1) Console Login Prompt At Boot

Nov 20, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my 32gb flash drive. Just one large partition for the OS and about a gig for swap. Worked fine. Booted to USB on two computers and a laptop at home. Fine. Figured I'd try it on a work pc for the sake of testing a random computer. Well I stick the drive in, boot up, select usb from the boot menu and bam Ubuntu starts loading. I look away, it's cool ubuntu's loading. Well I turn back and it's a black screen. It's "<username>@whatever login:" or something close.

I use the username and password I created during installation and what I used to login to the computer like fifty million times while booted into Ubuntu. Well, invalid login. The first time I installed this OS on this drive I updated it through the update manager and rebooted. Next thing I know I type in my username and password, hit enter, and bam black screen, some stuff, then im asked to login again. Now after this next iteration I am faced with yet another faulty login screen. What is up with this OS?

Fedora Installation :: How To Set Console (Tty1) Screen Resolution

Jul 29, 2010

After install of FC13, my command prompt console and tty virtual consoles are a small box in the upper left corner of the screen. It contains tiny 80 characters by 25 rows. I want to fill the screen the old way. I assume the problem is high value screen resolution set automatically to match my display; with fonts based on the smaller pixels. This is NOT X-Windows. I can set that resolution but it has no effect on tty consoles.

It is NOT grub, which I can set with kernel parameter vga=0 to do exactly what I want. Messages from grub are big letters but change to tiny ones at init ("press 'I' for interactive startup" and the beginning of the boot log). This is not an issue with the same display using FC10 and no vga= parameter. Is there a reason that the kernel parameter failed after grub? Can I specify console resolution?

Ubuntu :: Missing Login Prompt In Console Mode?

Feb 1, 2010

After upgrading to Ubuntu 9.10 I no longer get a login prompt when switching to console mode e.g. (CTRL+ALT)-F1. Instead i just get blinking cursor in the top left corner. Key strokes are printed the screen but otherwise nothing happens. I can switch back and forth between X and the console normally.

Where are the consoles configured, and is there a corresponding log somewhere i can check? Has anyone had similars problem?

My system is an old Amilo Pro laptop with a VIA 800 compatible chip-set.

How to get tty1-6 back?

Ubuntu :: Startup Tty1 Instead Of X Console?

Mar 4, 2011

I want to use Ubuntu to build an information terminal. This will basically be an X application that displays interesting information. I has to be lightweight seeing that it is installed on compact flash memory.I started with a 10.04 command line install and added xserver-xorg. Please note I am not using a window manager or desktop environment; bare bones X only. I have created a /etc/init.d/myapp file which can start my application by calling "/usr/bin/xinit ${MYAPP}". I used update-rc.d to create a symlink in rc2.d that points to /etc/init.d/myapp. Here is my problem:

On startup the application runs but the system sometimes switches to tty1 (virtual console 1) instead of displaying the X console. I then have to manually switch to it by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F7. How can I make it *always* display the X console with my application? Another thing I noticed is sometimes the X server runs on virtual console 7 and other times on 8. I though that X starts on the first available console and Ubuntu has 6 ttys configured by default. So I would expect it to always run on 7, like and ordinary Ubuntu desktop.

Ubuntu Installation :: NVIDIA Graphics Driver - Graphics Mode Option Via The Start (GRUB)?

Jan 26, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu (9.10) and noted that in order to successfully run the trial off the CD I had to test in "safe graphics" mode. I have an NVIDIA GEforce 6600 GT card - which was discovered by Ubuntu in the first few minutes of the trial and so I activated the recommended driver and continued to test. After a successful trial I installed Ubuntu (dual partition Ubuntu / Windows XP), however, it seems the install didn't activate the required driver (as part of the process) and so I'm unable to get into my newly-installed Ubuntu at all. All I get is a flashing tty screen asking for my username and password - however it's erratic and won't recognise what I type. So - I'm stuck in a catch-22 as there doesn't seems to be a safe graphics mode option via the start (GRUB?) menu list.

Hardware :: NVidia GeForce 8600GT Graphics Card Not Working Properly

Jan 28, 2010

I have a problem with a new GeForce 8600GT graphics card. I just installed the card into my Dell Optiplex 745. When I boot the PC I have no image until the Ubuntu logon box comes up. No bios info, no boot menu, no grub menu, nothing until the Ubuntu login. Once I get to the logon prompt everything seems fine except when I use CTRL+ALT+F1 to get to a console. Then I get nothing but a blank screen. When I press CTRL+ALT+F7 my desktop loads fine and all is OK again. I had a problem trying to get the nVidia drivers installed because I didn't have a usable console. I had to use SSH to install the drivers. I'm using this card with an HP 1755 flat panel that's about 5 years old and a Dell Optiplex 745 with Intel Dual-Core CPU.

Ubuntu Installation :: No GUI Interface / Keeps Starting In Console Mode

I recently installed ubuntu 10.10 on my Acer Aspire laptop 5745G-7671 laptop. It has an Nvidia Geforce gt 420m dedicated card, and an Intel HD integrated GPU. The problem is, I recenly installed a driver for it (because ubuntu had already found a driver in hardware management). After I did that, everytime I try to start ubuntu, I can no longer see any GUI interface.I have tried everything. I tried restarting X (which doesn't seem to work in Ubuntu 10.10, and tried holding CTRL+ALT+F7 too, but it just displays a few "[ OK ]" messages.

Debian Installation :: NVIDIA Quadro NVS 295 - Make Sure During Installation That GRUB Gets Configured To Stay In Character Mode Only?

Mar 2, 2011

I am trying to get Debian 6 to work on an hp Z400 - the problem is that it came with a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 295 graphics card; there may be a driver for Linux, but it doesn't matter, because GRUB insists on switching to some sort of graphics mode and the screen just blanks and switches itself off. Is there any way to make sure during installation that GRUB gets configured to stay in character mode only?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04/Nvidia- Continually Defaults Back To Low Graphics Mode

Jul 8, 2010

10.04 and Nvidia video card.

This sequence:

sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
sudo update-alternatives --config gl_conf (not sure what to choose, I just pick an option at random)
sudo ldconfig
sudo nvidia-xconfig

and then restart gets everything apparently working correctly, with my desktop spread across two monitors.

However, after two or three computer restarts, it 'forgets' and defaults back to low graphics mode and all the common error messages mentioned in multiple threads here, with my second monitor just duplicating the primary monitor.

Under System-Hardware drivers it says Nvidia_current is activated but not in use, regardless of whether it starts normally or in low graphics mode.

What's up? It's a pain to have to go through that sequence over and over again, and then restart my computer every two or three days, and leaving the computer on 24/7 isn't an option. power saving and all that.

Fedora Installation :: 12 And X Startup Failed On Nvidia / Falling Back To Text Mode?

Feb 23, 2010

I have an older PC that was running F11 without any problems. At some point I started updating to F12 through the web and got a a nice black screen that pretty much hosed my OS. (Not a big deal).So I went and downloaded the F12 Live CD which did the same thing.., at some point just after install the screen would be black and reset is the only option.Got the full F12 32-bit DVD and during the installation I get: "X Startup Failed,Falling back to text mode."Finishing the install I get to a nice black log-in prompt so I can log-in as root.From there I cant do much as I am a n00d in Linux to some extent and my network doesn't work

My video card is a Geforce FX 5200 which installed and worked just fine under F11 (without me doing anything but basic install and Ubuntu 9.10)

Fedora Installation :: How To Start Anaconda ( DVD Installer) In Expert Mode

Aug 25, 2010

I'd like to install Fedora12/13 on a external USB 2.0 HDD. Ive managed to do so with the live image several times, but the DVD installer does not see that particular USB HDD so I cannot install Fedora on it. Its the same with F12 and F13.Ive already tried to start the installation in expert mode. The expert option is ignored or something (linux expert/expert does nothing). Im not sure where exactly to write the options. I chose the rescue line and changed rescue to expert (nothing happend).

Then Ive tried Ctrl+Alt+F2 > "modprobe usb-storage" with no output (that should be right, right?). Again nothing.How to start anaconda (the DVD installer) in expert mode?How to load proper modules (to get the USB Drive to be recognised)?How to install Fedora12/13 from DVD onto USB2.0 HDD?
