Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Enable VDPAU For NVidia 8400GS

Oct 8, 2010

I installed libvdpau and then I installed the nvidia vdpau software. I was following some steps from another post. When I run XBMC and hit 'O' I can see that the gcpu is still not doing any work (0 - 6%), the two computer cpus are doing all the work. They run at 30%'ish on 720p content and that renders smooth. No prob there. However, the cpus jump up to 50%+ (both cpus) on 1080p content and they can't keep the frame rate steady. It jumps around significantly so of course the movie stutters. No, the network is not the issue. Its completely wired gigabit end to end. Plus I'm running the video from the local hard drive and it doesn't change.

So... the solution is to get VDPAU working and so far I haven't found the right instructions.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Enable Nvidia 8400GS Video Card Drivers?

May 17, 2010

I've tried to enable the drivers for a Nvidia 8400GS video card on Ubuntu 10.04. I've tried change desktop background > visual effects. It tells me Desktop effects can't be enabled. Sudo jockey-gtk looks and tells me no proprietary drivers are in use by my system. I've tried installing from Nvidia's site and that seems to go okay but doesn't seem to work. I have an internal video card that can't be turned off in BIOS )either ON or AUTO) that might be causing me problems.Lspci:Quote:

Ubuntu :: Nvidia 8400GS - Low Graphics Mode

Sep 1, 2011

A few days ago, I upgraded my system from the EOL 9.04 to 10.04LTS. This did go relatively well, though the upgrade process reported some "could not update" errors for the NVIDIA drivers and at the first boot it reported it had to start in low graphics mode. I noticed that I had manually installed drivers from NVIDIA's website before the upgrade, while afterwards the hardware drivers from the package manager had been enabled. I then disabled Ubuntu's drivers, and attempted to manually reinstall NVIDIA's own drivers.

This resulted in some errors related to the install script not being able to find some vdpau related stuff. Something interesting then occured. As root everything worked flawless, but as normal user I still ended up with errors resulting Ubuntu to continue in low graphics mode. So I enabled the package managers driver again. This seemed to solve all issues for the next 5 boots. Until this morning, I again get a black screen with only a blinking "_" on the screen for quite some time, after which (nice feature) Ubuntu proposes to continue in low graphics mode.

Here is a relevant part from my syslog:

Ubuntu :: Graphics Card Is An Nvidia 8400gs, Which Is Not That Good?

Feb 1, 2010

I'm running Karmic on AMD64x2, and I have Compiz. I have been running fine, but when I run top, I see that compiz.real always takes up 100% of one of the cores of my CPU. this happens even when I change the visual effects to none in the appearance preferences. This problem starts as soon as I log in. My graphics card is an nvidia 8400gs, which is not that good, and I've installed my drivers using envy. Does anyone have any ideas about this problem?

Fedora :: 13 With Geforce 8400GS - Graphics Performance

Jun 16, 2010

I just did (another) fresh install of FC13. On the last install I attempted to install the nvidia proprietary drivers (tried every guide I could find). When I installed the proprietary drivers, I could no longer boot. It would hang at the end tri-color progress bar. I could ALT+F2 to get to tty2, and deleting the xorg.conf file and init 5 would get me back to the Gnome login. I continued trying other methods, getting such results as a black screen with no way to access tty. I tried using the rescue function from the DVD, but this time I couldn't fix the problem by deleting xorg.conf and executing init 5.

After failing in everything I tried for the proprietary driver, I decided I'd give the new nouveau a shot. Every time I fresh install FC13, the graphics performance is TERRIBLE. Moving a window around or scrolling in Firefox is painfully choppy and borders on unusable. I tried 'yum install mesa-dri-drivers-experimental' but after rebooting the performance was still beyond crappy.

I can get proprietary drivers working in Debian Lenny without breaking a sweat, but I prefer Fedora as a whole by far.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Old Video Card, Nvidia XFX 7800GT Now Beginning To Fail - Which Way Is Best, ATI Or Nvidia?

May 3, 2010

I have an old video card, Nvidia XFX 7800GT, which is now beginning to fail and I need to upgrade. I am not huge a gamer but I do play/buy games on regular basis. Right now I'm playing Eternal Lands on the Linux side. Looking to spend $100-$150 on a new card.I have a Core2Duo Wolfdale 3.0, with 2ghz ram and run Lucid 32bit. Also run windows Vista64Ultimate on dual boot (rarely).

I would love to buy a new ATI 5770 or 5830, ATI budget cards seem to be much better for the buck over budget Nvidia cards, but I'm concerned with ATI drivers and long term with Ubuntu.On the Nvidia side I'm considering the GTS 250. The only advantage I can find is lower power consumption with Nvidia and Ubuntu has always preferred Nvidia over ATI, as far as working drivers go.As Far as Ubuntu and Lucid is concerned, which way is best, ATI or Nvidia? Has anything changed with ATI support, that could make theor cards more compatible now and in the future?

Here's what I've been doing:-Change the "Driver "nvidia"" line in /etc/X11/xorg.conf to "Driver "vesa""-Restart system in single user mode as root, no services running-cd to the directory with nvidia-Linux-x86_64-... .run (what I'll call nvidia.run)-enter "sh nvidia.run --uninstall"-enter "CC="/usr/bin/gcc-4.3" && sh nvidia.run"It starts up and it compiles the kernel 100%. Then it says this:

frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or
improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get 1080p On A Nvidia ION With VLC

Jul 2, 2010

I ended up getting 1080p playback working perfectly with vlc on my 1201n about 2 months ago, but then I decided I'd reformat my system to clean it out a little. There's other tutorials out there, but none are as straightforward as that one. I literally copy and pasted the commands and it worked like magic...now I have the latest nvidia driver installed, but vlc 1.1 won't let me check the GPU acceleration box under Preferences > 'Input and Codecs'.

I remember that this tutorial gave you PPAs for debs of vlc pre-1.1 git files, and a list of all the necessary software to install (vlc, vdpau, smplayer). It was hosted on a site other than ubuntuforums, and it was the only one that worked at the time for me.

Anyone know what I'm talking about, or give similar links? I think with this new nvidia driver stuff is actually being slowed down a bit, but that doesn't explain why VLC won't let me activate GPU acceleration.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Versus Nvidia

Jul 18, 2010

Are there big disadvantages to building a computer around a motherboard with ATI Radeon graphics instead of Nvidia? I am using an AMD CPU to save money, but all the motherboards AMD recommends use ATI. I have always used Nvidia in the past, And am not sure what the current state of ATI Linux drivers is. I know I would be giving up VDPAU acceleration for video playback, but hopefully the Athlon´┐Ż II X4 635 processor I am looking at has enough horsepower to handle this on it's own, even for high-def h264.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Install NVidia 260.19.12

Oct 15, 2010

nVidia came out with new drivers yesterday that are not in the nvidia-current metapackage. I don't care what card you have, this module drives it. What worked for me may not necessarily work for everyone, as I am not an oracle with respect to your particular system configuration. This howto will be done in broad strokes. Down to business. For this howto, I will assume two things: first, that you download the nVidia installer to /home/username; second, that your prior setup was having nvidia-current installed! Things we want installed

Code:

build-essentials linux-headers-generic linux-source

Thing we do NOT want installed

Code:

xserver-xorg-video-nouveau

Paranoid stuff we'd like to do just in case the above doesn't work (as it did not for me): sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf Somewhere in the file, add the line "blacklist nouveau" PRINT THESE INSTRUCTIONS NOW BEFORE YOU KILL YOUR X SERVER Now, I installed by doing (from my home user directory)

Code:

sudo stop gdm
sudo apt-get remove nvidia-current
sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.12.run -a
reboot

This stops the X server, removes the potentially conflicting current drivers you have, installs the new driver (and -a accepts the license agreement so that we don't get prompted), and reboots.If this does not work, you can rollback from a LiveCD or the recovery mode with (again, from your home user directory)

Code:

sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.12.run --uninstall
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
reboot

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Visual With Nvidia 260.19.06?

Ever since I let the update manager install the 260.19.06 Nvidia driver I have had page tares about 1/4 of the way down the screen when vsync is enabled, if i disable vsync I get tares all over the screen, with vsync on only 1/4 of the way down the screen. Same in Video playback, flash, games, window draging, always the same location. Its not a big issue as I'm not doing multimedia or games under Linux. I'm more wondering if this is just effecting me or if it's a known issue.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Over HDMI With Nvidia ION ?

Jan 4, 2010

I am having trouble getting sound over hdmi with my Nvidia MCP7A HDMI. The strange thing is that everything works fine in a Live disc, but once I do a fresh install of that Live disc I get no sound, even though my configuration is exactly the same (as far as I can tell). I've checked the little things like alsamixer volumes, aplay -l, etc etc. Everything looks good to me. I can reproduce on multiple TVs so its not the receiver. Video drivers are the same in both live version and installed. aplay -l detects my device. sound/pci/hda/patch_nvhdmi.c already has my correct vendor id in it. Perhaps the following info can figure out what my installed environment is lacking.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: New Nvidia Card - Visualizations Gone

New VideoCard, mplayer visuals gone Mplayer and Rythmbox, which I believe use the same visualiser engine, have both gone black-screen since I installed a new video card.

Any ideas what could be going on? The options for visualisations are enabled, I've tried just fiddling with the quality levels and changing the visualizer (Goom, monoscope, etc) and it's all just black.Here's a ton of info - I don't know what's needed so I'm just throwing anything I think might be requested in a pre-emptive move!Card: It's an MSI N9400GT - it's an Nvidia chipset something something, SLI card.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting NVidia ION To Output A 852 X 480 Signal?

Jan 20, 2010

On an Asrock ION 330HT-BD box Im running Ubuntu 9.10 (2.6.31-17-generic) with the nVidia driver 185.18.36. The Asrock box uses the nVidia ION chip and the nVidia driver appears to be working without any problems.

My problem is, that I what to use the box as a MythTV frontend with an (old) SD Plasma screen as display, which have a native resolution of 852 x 480 and I cant get the box to output a 852 x 480 signal. The Plasma is connected with a HDMI -> DVI cable. No matter what settings I have tried in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, the box keeps outputting a 1024 x 768 (or higher) signal

Questions:

1) Is the nVidia ION chip capable of outputting a 852 x 480 signal?

2) If Yes to above, how do I configure my xorg.conf file?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Swapping Between ATI And NVIDIA Cards?

I am running Ubuntu 9.10. My work requires me to frequently swap video cards between an ATI Radeon 5870 card and an NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX card. My question is: can the ATI driver (fglrx - catalyst 10.2) and the NVIDIA driver (nvidia 190.29) co-exist? Or do I need to reinstall the driver every time I change the card? I would like for the drivers to be able to co-exist so it would only be a matter of restarting my machine with the new card and choose the right xorg.conf file (perhaps from the GRUB menu).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get NVIDIA 195.36.24 Driver Installed

May 19, 2010

I have a Zotac IONITX-F-E motherboard (Intel Atom Dual Core 1.6 GHz + Nvidia ION) -based box with Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit installed. My goal is to play back 1080p video. I read somewhere that the nouveau driver that installs by default with ubuntu 10.04 does not support VDPAU. So, my first step is to install the nVidia proprietary driver. I tried following a half-dozen different guides for doing this, none of which worked. Let's take this one for example: [URL] I purge. I reboot. I run the Nvidia installer (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.24-pkg2.run). I get:

Code: ERROR: Unable to create '/usr/lib/nvidia-current/libGL.so.195.36.15' for copying (no such file or directory). So, I run: Code: sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-185 nvidia-185-modaliases I try the nvidia installer again. It works. I reboot. I get a message saying that ubuntu is running in low graphics mode, because loading the nvidia kernel module failed. I check /var/log/messages and see: Code: API mismatch: the client has version 195.36.24 but the kernel module has version 195.36.15. I take a Tylenol and here I am.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Use The Nvidia Driver

May 28, 2010

I just performed a clean install of Kubuntu Lucid earlier this week after deciding it was time to upgrade from Hardy. Pretty much everything worked, until I attempted to install the proprietary NVIDIA driver.

OS details: Kubuntu 10.04 x64 Kernel 2.6.32.22.What happened when I tried to install the proprietary nvidia-current package was simply that it didn't work. I could open the nvidia utility, it would say the driver was not in use. Attempts to force the issue by running nvidia-xconfig would render the X server unable to start, which gave me some quality time in a shell console with APT or restoring the xorg.conf file from backup. Trying to compile and install the driver from nvidia also wasn't working out so well.

I think the issue boiled-down to the install presumably attempting to upgrade the kernel during initial install from CD, but not doing so completely. I had all the appropriate 2.6.32.22 kernel and header packages, but GRUB was apparently still booting to the 2.6.32.21 kernel (which had no headers or anything) and not giving options to boot to the upgraded kernel.

How I fixed this was to remove all packages related to the 2.6.32.22 kernel via APT, then remove all the 2.6.32.21 kernel packages. That second operation triggered the 2.6.32.22 kernel to be reinstalled, and GRUB to be configured correctly to boot to it. At that point, I reinstalled nvidia-current, and it worked. I tried this after determining I was on the 2.6.32.21 kernel, and had no option to boot to the 2.6.32.22 one.

Your mileage may vary. In retrospect, I probably could've fixed it by fixing GRUB to boot to the current kernel. This appears to be a consistent issue, as I reinstalled at one point, just to start over, and went through the same thing again.

I suspect the driver I obtained from the nvidia website and patched (due to issues it has with recent kernels) might work now that I'm booting to the correct kernel with headers, but I think I'll save that for another time since nvidia-current is working great for me at the moment.

[URL]. I now have both monitor working and noticed my drivers are not current. I have the older ones installed. The 260.19.06 one. I installed via the suggested restricted driver utility in ubuntu 10.10. I don't have full use of the graphics and would like to install the latest driver.

Question:
1. Do I uninstall nouvea and nv drivers (still installed)
2. Do I uninstall the current nvidia driver, then do a manual install of the latest driver from nvidia?
