Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVidia Driver - Force TV Out Not Working

Nov 26, 2010

I used Gefoce9400GT , 190.53 nvidia driver, configuring Mulitiple X screen both CRT and TV, work fine if CRT and TV connected to card, but I hope foce TV-out output signal, means that if not connected to TV, the SVIDEO can output signal. Because the line too far, cannot detect TV connection, so I think foce output TV-out signal. I used Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV". Can force found 2 display device, have 2 screen ok, but not display at TV if not connected TV. I do not understand why the TV has been forced output signal does not display images, they can be connected to the TV show?

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.

Ubuntu :: Force Add 1440x900 Resolution To NVidia Driver

Jun 30, 2010

My monitor's dvi jack is damaged so my nvidia geforce 210 does not recognise the supported resolutions correctly.

result: while it actually can support upto 1440x900, the highest available resolution is 1360x768.

While on windows, i used the nvidia utility to add the custom resolution and everything was nice.

On ubuntu 10.04, i haven't found a way to do that yet. yes, i searched forums, tried a couple of things with the xorg.conf file and lxrandr, etc. but to no avail.

I did manage to get the resolution listed in ubuntu's own display manager, and it shows 1440x900, but it doesn't apply when i hit 'apply'.

The nvidia settings manager does not show the resolution.

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

Nov 11, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Driver Not Working With Kernel 2.6.35-27 / Getting Error?

Mar 11, 2011

I am running the newest Nvidia driver from nvidia.com, version 260.19.44. The built in proprietary Nvidia driver does not work properly.

Recently ubuntu was updated to a newer kernel 2.6.35.27 from 2.6.35.25. Under 2.6.35.25 the driver is working. Under 2.6.35.27 the desktop is not starting, and I can login to a 'console'. After login i try to run startx, and gets some errors. See attached Xorg.0.log.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: New Nvidia Driver Installation In 10.04?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.10 Nvidia Proprietary Driver No GUI

Nov 23, 2010

Installing Mythbuntu 10.10, which I finally got installed properly. At first I installed the open-source video drivers just to make sure the installation worked, then I installed the "version current" proprietary drivers using the graphics drivers manager...tool...thing. However, when I restarted the computer, it has a text-mode splash screen and I stay in the first virtual terminal.

If I try to go to the GUI "terminal" [Ctrl-Alt-F7], it appears to be partway through some kind of check:

Code:

I ran sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg to try to get back to the open-source drivers, but it didn't give any text output and went straight to the next line of command prompt, when I restarted it did the exact same thing. Any tips for at least getting back to the open drivers? I'd like to not have to reinstall again (I'm dual-booting WinXP,). The card in question is a GeForce 6200 AGP.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: OpenCL With The Packaged Proprietary NVIDIA Driver Not Working?

Sep 8, 2010

what the prepackaged proprietary nvidia driver is missing to run compiled OpenCL programs.

I have the pre-packaged proprietary nvidia driver from [URL] and the package is missing some files, like lobOpenCL.so, which I extracted from the .run file and put manually in the /usr/lib64 directory toether with creating some symlinks. I can compile my opencl programs fine (C | // // File: hello.c // - Anonymous - 3BF2vDzc - [URL], Getting started with OpenCL and GPU Computing), but when I run, the firsr opencl-related function clGetPlatformIDs returns an error code.

Again, I try to figure out what the prepackaged driver is missing. If I use the nvidia .run script driver, the problem probably does not exist. CUDA executables run fine (compiled on an other opensuse machine without nvidia card)

opensuse 11.1 64bit, nvidia quadrofx3700 driver version 256.53
