Ubuntu Installation :: Internet Disconnection After Installing Nvidia Driver
Jul 6, 2010
last night i have fresh installed ubuntu 10.4 on my computer. Then after that, I installed the updates. Lastly, i installed nvidia hardware driver so that i could use its graphical effects. After rebooting my computer, i've noticed that i was disconnected from the internet. And I was surprised that it is the cause of my internet disconnection because when i remove it, my internet comes back. What should I do with this?
I'm a newbie to Linux and I'm using offline ubuntu 9.04 and now I have problem installing Nvidia driver which I don't have access to internet to download driver. Can you show the way to download Nvidia driver? I downloaded from Nvidia Site but I still need internet access to install it.
I have install Ubuntu 10.10 64bit in my sony vaio vpccw16fs which have Nvidia graphics card (GT 230M). I have install it using nomodeset and after entering the system I installed nvidia from System> Administration> Additional drivers. Driver version was current 260.19.06. After installation I was able to see the boot screen but was unable to see the logon screen. The computer froze with the background color of bootscreen which is purple. And I have to restart it and have to choose failsafe graphic mode. And after logging in in failsafe graphic mode. My NVidia driver says I am not using it. How to use nvidia driver properly. I have tried many Tutorials present on internet but none of them works.
Here is my xorg.conf file. # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig # nvidia-xconfig: version 260.19.06 (buildmeister@builder101) Mon Sep 13 04:59:45 PDT 2010 Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "Layout0" Screen 0 "Screen0" InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard" InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer" EndSection .....
I've had Ubuntu installed on my desktop for a month now, and its all worked like a charm, so I'm thrilled. I then decided to install it on my old laptop as well to see if I could breath a bit more life into it, and to get used to working Ubuntu a bit more. The laptop had 18.6GB partitioned to C:// drive or windows XP, and an empty 18.6GB D:// drive, so I deleted the D:// drive in XP using the Microsoft disk utilities tool, all well and good. I then did a clean install of Ubuntu-9.10-desktop with an Ubuntu CD into the largest continuous free space, and it set it up nicely. When I first booted it up there were a ton of updates to install, as there had been on the desktop first time, which I dutifully installed. As on the desktop a little notice popped up telling me to install the NVidia Proprietary driver for the NVidia card (specifically "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version 96)[Recommended]"), as it had when I installed it on the desktop, so I chose to install that and then restarted the computer.
On restarting GRUB2 loaded, and it booted Ubuntu. I then saw the little white logo on the black screen for a couple of seconds, and then the screen goes completely white, with some pixels left behind fading to white slightly slower. First time through I held down the power button to force shut down, and on restart exactly the same thing happened. This time I held down alt+sysrq and went through the R, E, I, S, U, B sequence, however as opposed to usual I didn't get a black terminal-like screen after hitting any of the buttons, although it did reboot on B. It did boot correctly in recovery mode, however I was at a loss what to do here. Incidentally, the same problem occurred when I booted to previous version of the kernel as well.
Then I decided that as I didn't have any data to lose, and it was still early in the day, I'd do a clean re-install. This time I chose to ignore the updates, and just install the NVidia driver as prompted to check that it was the driver causing the trouble. Having installed the driver and restarted I got exactly the same problem as before - definitely this pesky NVidia driver, not any of the updates.So here I am at clean install 3, having just got all the updates, but not having downloaded the NVidia driver as prompted, with little desire to go through yet more reinstalls. My questions are:
1) Do I need to install this NVidia driver? The rest of the computer specifications are fairly paltry by modern standards, and I won't be doing anything graphics intensive on it (the most graphical program will probably be Battle for Wesnoth) and I I don't need to install it, not installing it seems to be the easiest way to solve the problem.
2) If I do need to install it how would I go around doing this without getting my charming white screen?
3) Is there a way of removing the driver from recovery mode that doesn't involve a clean install again? I have tried sudo apt-get purge nvidia-driver, which tells me there isn't any installed. I have tried sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf which made no difference. I have tried dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg and this didn't help. I have tried a couple of other commands as well but I can't remember them, however I would probably recognise them if I saw them again.
Onto System information - pulled from listed specifications and SysInfo:

I just installed ubuntu on my m11x and am completely new to ubuntu. After installing the latest driver for the 335m I am stuck at checking battery state and there is no way I can get to the gui anymore. The only access I have to are the tty's and I don't know what to do. I have already tried finding a solution for a couple of hours, but cannot find any. Please help me solve this problem, I do not want to reinstall again.
I have completed building gazebo, and everything was done successfully according to the following link [URL]... bot_Simulation , but when I tried to invoke gazebo using the command "gazebo /usr/local/share/gazebo/worlds/pioneer2dx.world" it returns the following error
i am using ubuntu 9.10.i connect to net through the gnome netwok manager via a mobile broadband connection. can anyone suggest any commands or tools with the help of which i can disconnect the net at a preset time or after a fixed interval has expired. i know that by executing "poff" command in terminal i can disconnect the connection, but i want the same to happen automatically without any kind of user intervention at a scheduled time.
First, the network manager would show up on my girlfriend's profile (hers was the first one we created) but it won't show up on mine and it would not detect any internet connections. I found another thread that told me to type "nm-applet &" into the terminal, which works great. It shows the network manager and auto connects. But as soon as I close the terminal, it auto disconnects. Anyone know why and what I can do to make the network manager icon stay besides keeping the terminal open?
I had a working ubuntu 10.10 system two days ago with kernel 2.6.35-24. I have a gtx 460 card so I have the driver from Jockey/Additional Drivers installed.
Two days ago update manager prompted me to install 2.6.35-25. I've never had problems updating kernels so I did. I Rebooted my machine and gdm/gnome no longer starts. I always get stuck on the tty1 screen. I did some troubleshooting and figured out that my current NVidia drivers seems to be messing it up. So I booted into my older kernel (2.6.35-24) and removed my NVidia driver.
I used these steps to switch from nvidia to nouveau: NvidiaDriverSwitching
I can now boot into my latest kernel (2.6.35-25) but now I'm having problems trying to reinstall the nvidia drivers.
jockey sometimes doesn't list any available drivers. and when it does, it gives me an "System InstallArchive() error" when trying to install.
I tried installing nvidia-current via apt-get and I get these errors:

I have some trouble installing the nvidia driver on Fedora12. I started to follow the guide posted by Leigh here:[URL]..I enabled the rpmfusion repo, but when i wanted to install kmod-nvidia and xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686 i had a depadency failure Here's what i got:
I am having problems installing the graphics driver (from the Nvidia website) for my Nvidia Vanta card on Ubuntu 10.04. I disabled X via terminal and then I ran a Virtual Console. With the virtual console I ran the chmod command and the went through the installation. It did bring up a message with something about my distro not having a pre-configured script (or something like that) and asked me if I would like to continue anyway. I choose Yes and the installation failed.
I tried installing it via ctrl alt F1, i managed somehow to install it,i needed to because the old one was conflicting with my card(8800 Ultra), and this showed up when i typed in startx. Using ubuntu 11.04 [IMG] [URL]
I am trying to install Nvidia card driver. The driver has got a .run extension and i don't know how to handle that, I've tried to extract like i did with .tar files but didn't work. I clicked the file while in X window and it opens a terminal and runs for a sec and said i have to exit X window and run as root. so i exit X window and login form CUI, navigate to the folder and type "NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.08-pkg1.run" but nothing happens, so i add sudo and tried but All i get is "NVIDIA command not found". I guess this is not a problem but i just don't know how to handle the .run file. please help. I am using Ubuntu Lucid Lynx LTS. I' ve checked other threads and found some issues regarding Nvidia drivers but i wanna know how to handle the .run files.I've windows xp, 7, Puppy Linux and Lucid Lynx on my desktop and whenever i repair windows the GRUB got damaged. Is there a way to recover the loader without reinstalling the whole linux OS like getting into recovery console and fixboot,, fixmbr for restoring windows?
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.
I installed on my laptop NVIDIA driver from the opensuse repository. After restart i am not geting the GUI.The screen blinks while booting and finally ends in command line login. Error shows that gdm lasted for only few seconds. Max number of try exceeded.

But when I type yum list | grep nvidia, nothing comes up. When I type yum install kmod-nvidia or yum install akmod-nvidia, it says there's no package like this. Have these been updated for Fedora V10 yet? If they haven't, I guess I will just have to use another distro. BTW, when I tried installing the driver from the NVIDIA website, it says it needs to recompile the Kernel, and after installing gcc and make, it still gave some weird error about how with kernel 2.6 it can't find the proper kernel headers or something like that. I heard somebody post that you shouldn't use the NVIDIA drivers, they mess up OpenGL, you should you Livna kmod-nvidia.
1) Would you recommend livna kmod-nvidia or Nvidia's own driver's for a GeForce2 MX400 and Fed 10?
2) Whichever you recommend, could you give some clue how to get around either problem I'm having?
I have an LG R-450 laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 installed in it. When I connect him to a network (either LAN or Wireless) it stays connected for a few minutes and then Just disconnects (without showing any sign of disconnection except no internet/skype/dropbox). Only way to renew connection is after startup. The network controller is SIS 191 Gigabit Ethernet adapter.
I am trying to setup a computer with xubuntu 10.10 for my dad. It is mostly working, but flash animations/games run somewhat poorly. I think I might be able to fix this by using the non-free nvidia drivers, but I cannot seem to get them installed.
Sysinfo reports that the video card is an nvidia geforce mx200, so I downloaded the nvidia 96 driver package from the repositories, ran the configuration program, & rebooted. As you may guess, x did not load.
I have been working on this intermittently for a few weeks, & I do not remember everything I might have tried to fix it, but here is what I am sure of:
Sysinfo reports that the video card is an nvidia geforce mx200
when i try "sudo modprobe nvidia," I get the message "FATAL: Module nvidia not found." "sudo modprobe nvidia-96" gives no such error.
When I check the Xorg.0.log, I find:
The nouveau driver does not seem to work either, but if I remove the xorg.conf file, x works okay. How to get Flashplayer running more smoothly.
Im running Ubuntu 10.10 on an Nvidia ION gpu. I've installed the latest driver using the built in driver tool and by downloading from nvidia. Both times this has been the result at every resolution:[URL]
