Ubuntu Networking :: No Ethernet After Graphics Driver Install?

May 3, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my PC last weekend. Other than the fact I had no sound (that's another story...), everything went fine. I then got prompted to install nvidia graphic drivers. Since I installed them and rebooted, i cannot get acces to my ethernet connection. I tried the solutions listed here, but none worked. Also, when i boot on my windows OS, the Internet is working properly. I tried tonight re-installing Ubuntu 10.04. I thought if the graphic caused problem, maybe a new blank installation would just do it.

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.

OpenSUSE Install :: Graphics Card Driver For GMA HD?

Jun 25, 2010

I have unfortunately found myself unable to properly boot up openSUSE because I decided to buy the Acer Aspire with the i5 Processor.

I have the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD (GMA HD) graphics card, and unfortunately from all my searching online and on openSUSE, I have been unable to find a driver for this that works for linux, and in addition I don't know how to install a driver outside of a GUI.

My openSUSE boots up to the boot choosing screen (regular openSUSE or failsafe), and then that nice list of functions being done is displayed, but as soon as the daemon has started, suddenly my screen goes blank and I am unable to do anything about it. Beyond this point, my OS loses all functionability, and while I can hear it computing, I am unable to actually tell WHAT it is computing. get a driver for this and to install this driver and get this GUI running, that would be great.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 9550 ATI Graphics Card - Cannot Install The Driver - Says Not Supported

Mar 28, 2010

Using Ubuntu 9.10 I installed Ubuntu onto a second hard drive and everything seems to work fine except for the fact that I cannot install the driver (it says not supported or something) when I downloaded it from the website. I downloaded the driver made for Linux. The driver manager claims "no proprietary drivers." At the moment it shows to be using integrated graphics, but I need the full hardware graphics to play games. The open source alternate driver didn't work either.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: ATI Catalyst Graphics Driver Install Failure In 11.3

Sep 17, 2010

I tried to install the ATI proprietary driver for an HD 5800 (Catalyst for Linux 64 bit, v. 10.8). The two main instruction sites are:

SDB:Configuring graphics cards - openSUSE
SDB:ATI drivers - openSUSE

I chose the hard way method. I downloaded the driver. Restarted SuSE 11.3 in mode 3. And as SU followed the method above, including adding the zypper programmes (which found some already installed and which installed a whole lot more). When I then attempted to run the install (sh ./atidriver-install-10.8-x86.x86_64.run) and selected automatic mode. It completed 82% and stalled attempting to install "Postprocessing Kernel Module".

I pressed control c to kill the process and attempted to re-install using the manual mode and then using the build mode. In both instances, same outcome. When I rebooted, and entered my password, the desktop did not load but sent me back to the username/password page. I can't get back in. Does not matter as I have backed up my docs.

I decided to install the proprietary driver because the colours on the desktop corrupt after the 2nd boot following a clean install. i.e. on the initial boot the colours are fine. Second, this is the 3rd effort I have made to install the driver after a clean install of SuSE 11.3 and there is no change in outcome. So, my question: anyone any suggestion what is going on and how I can install the driver successfully? Or, do I not understand the new regime in SuSE 11.3 and should I not attempt to install a new driver.

OpenSUSE Install :: Graphics Card Driver / Everything Is Greyed Out (nothing To Be Selected)?

Jun 18, 2009

I recently installed SuSE 11.1 (64 bit) on my system

AMD Phenom II 940 3.0 Ghz;Biostar TA790GX 128M Motherboard with ATI Radeon HD 3300 Graphics card built in;
4 Gb (2*2 sticks) DDR2 800 MHz RAM

The installation went smoothly, But on first restart and login (and subsequent ones too!) I get a light purple screen with a skyblue box at top left corner, with xconsole written on it. when I Left click anywhere on the screen, I get a popdown with a number of options, of which only XTerm (bash shell) and exit (logout) options work. Now I know the HD 3300 graphics card drivers are not built into the SuSE 11.1 distribution, and I have already downloaded them (Linux ones)from ATI website. I login as Superuser, and type init 3 to go to a very basic screen,login as user, change to superuser again and then run the following file i downloaded from ATI:

sh ati-driver-installer-9-4-x86.x86_64.run

The result/output at the command prompt:

Created directory fglrx-install.ubanI5
Verifying archive Integrity... All good.
Uncompressing ATI proprietary linux driver-8.602...
.....(lot of dots)...
ati-driver-installer-9-4-x86.x86_64.run: line 295: ./ati-installer.sh: Permission denied Removing temporary directory: fglrx_install.ubanI5

Once again, i tried everything in superuser login.

Also I tried making changes via sax2 command, it doesnt seem to work. A window opens where I see that my graphics card has been detected but thats about it. nothing else in that option, everything is greyed out (nothing to be selected)

General :: Boots To Bash Shell After Install Of ATI Graphics Driver?

Mar 23, 2011

After installing the ATI graphics driver that was suggested under System > Devices, ubuntu required a reboot. now it either hangs on boot, or boots into the Bash shell. I tried the option in the Grub boot llist to boot into recovery mode, and then teh option to fix recent update (or something like that), but it did not help.
Assuming the ATI driver is the problem, how can I back it out?

OpenSUSE Install :: ATI Driver Installs Have Destroyed SUSE/GNOME Graphics Setup?

May 20, 2011

Caution to all using ati graphics download repository. I have been using SUSE 11.4 after an upgrade from 11.3 through zypper for months. I added ati graphics as a update repository. Software update installed two ati files. I did not notice their names.

Upon installation my graphics was acting funny so I uninstalled the two ati-files figuring I'd be back to where I was. Now I can only get into terminal window after reboot at both runlevel 3 and 5; no graphics at all. I keep getting message re: display 'null' I wish to return to original graphics configuration prior to ati downloads which, I believed used xorg drivers.

I believe I either need to revise xorg.conf file back to original which was overwritten by ati process or reinstall xorg/X11 related files. I have an ati radeon HD 3450 agp card. 32 bit SUSE w/11.4 installed and running. Anyone have a sample xorg.conf that might work or some other ideas of how to get back to where I was.

As a related question, if I do a fresh reinstall of SUSE 11.4 using dvd can I save my /home files and any /filesystem files that my special software created in root directories.

Ubuntu :: Runlevel 3 And Graphics Driver?

Sep 16, 2010

This post is basically an addendum to my other post located at this link: [URL]... The "new" video problem I'm having is that now I can't get the resolution back to the regular 1200x1600. So what I did is download the latest driver and the previous one to try as well. When I tried to install them it said I can't because I had an X server running. I ran an init 3 to change my run level and then did a >runlevel command, which reported "3 3". I'm assuming that confirms I am in fact running at level 3. I then ran the following command:

>sudo sh ./NVIDIA..yada yada yada (driver info) It tried to install it but said I'm STILL running an X server. What am I missing? Also, I did the init 3 command and confirmed it was "3 3" and then tried to run >startx from the command line. It said "fatal server error: Server is already active for display 0. If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock and start again."

Ubuntu :: Get Resolution 1440x900 / Graphics Driver

I've been loitering over my resolution and nvidia xserver settings for about 2 days now, fiddling with xorg.conf and breaking ubuntu in the process trying to get my resolution at it's native settings. I've searched through many forums and none of them have solved my problem. Its maximum resolution is 1360x768, which isn't enough. It should be 1440x900. I have tried adding custom modes to the xorg.conf file and it wouldn't work. I don't know what's going on. Also here is my xorg.conf since I saved the nvidia settings to it...

Ubuntu :: Lucid Keeps Losing Graphics Driver?

Jun 4, 2010

I'm having a weird problem with Lucid: whenever I boot my system, it seems to forget there's a graphics driver. The result is that windows don't have title bars, and anything involving fancy graphics is turned off.When I go to the "appearance" settings, I can go to "visual effects", select "normal", and the machine starts looking for a driver, which is found After that shading effects are once again on, but the windows still don't have title bars If I then start the Compiz settings manager, that window and any window that appears thereafter does have a title bar.That way my desktop configuration is pretty much how I want it. The problem is that after starting up again, all the wonkiness is back.
