  • last night i try a nvidia-driver on 2.6.33 and fail

    last night i stay by a frend and try to help him out.
    i try a nvidia-driver on 2.6.33 and fail, after i fail, i download a patch for 33 and fail again...

    what do i wrong ?

    and a other problem to i can't install the nvidia driver in X...

    the driver wans ini3 save mode...



    in my point of view amds closed-source driver do have a better installer.
    i can install it in X KDE running and do not need turn of x...
    yes i also need a patch for the 2.6.33 but after the patch it works...

    in the end i downgrade him to 2.6.32 and now it works.

    yes composit 3D desktop makes flash movies extremly slow turn of the 3D desktop brings normal speed back.

    nvidia shows to me thats the amd's 3D desktop problems are normally...

    something is very broken by desine with the cloused source drivers AMD/Nvidia--

    You must have used fully outdated nvidia drivers. Use the latest stable 195.36.08.

      it was a 190.50 based driver.

      next time i will test the newer one but the nvidia homepage give me thr old one....

      i think the card is to old for the newest driver...

        When 190.53 works then of course 195.xx too.

            my nickname is : Qaridarium

            yes thank you very much if i go to my friend next time i will install the new driver......

            he needs me to install the driver because install a nvidia driver into an Ubuntu 9.10 is to complicated for him.. (no its not funny)

            he fails on jumping into a failsafe init 3 mode to install the drive because its boot without a grub boot screen...

            I have some questions:

            How to install the nvidia driver in an running kde-X session ?

            or alternative way
            How to get a grub-boot menu splash screen ?

            in the past i edit the /boot/grub/grub.cfg and set # to the normal boot to get the next in the list: failsave boot...

            is there a key to press at start to get the bootmenue?

            do ubuntu have a install script for the newest nvidia driver like kanotix ?

            will the opensource nvidia driver ever run HON ?

              You don't know that my script installs nvidia drivers on U too?
              Code:
              sudo -i
              rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
              wget -N http://kanotix.com/files/install-nvidia-debian.sh
              sh install-nvidia-debian.sh
              Be sure that you always run the lastest script to get support for latest driver versions. Additionally my script will configure dkms which the default nvidia-installer does not. That currently does not work with pure squeeze/sid, therefore you would need "-m" option there. To use more than 1 monitor add "-d". All drivers have been tested that are enabled (fully automatic driver selection) - it will just not work when you need a 71.xx series driver and use a too new xorg.

                i know your script and i use it in the past.

                good one ;-)

                i ask a question about a ubuntu 'product'

                  i found the option

                  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub2
                  GRUB_TIMEOUT=0

                  he need to chance that. so he can chose the save mode from the kernel

                    U patches GRUB2 to hide the menu. You can access it when you hold down the SHIFT key on startup. I don't get what you want with the timeout value...

                      It is possible to install the nvidia drivers while running X. (And come on, this is not Windows - anything can be done any time .)

                      If you are using the installer from the website, running the following would have given you what you wanted:
                      Code:
                      sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.03-pkg2.run --help
                      sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.03-pkg2.run --advanced-options
                      sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.03-pkg2.run --no-x-check
                      . My other favorite options are "-K", i.e., "--kernel-module-only" and "-k", i.e., "--kernel-version".
                      Make sure to add the line
                      Code:
                      Driver "nvidia
                      in Device section of your xorg.conf and then,
                      Code:
                      /etc/init.d/gdm restart
                      should restart X with green drivers.

                      Btw, I am on Gentoo and I just use the distro package ("emerge nvidia-drivers") instead of the installer. Mainly because it has a rather awesome and sophisticated way of linking the opengl libraries. If Debian and/or Fedora or any distro ever get the equivalent of "eselect opengl", let me know .

                        This is only partly correct. Certainly you can install driver while X is running, that can be done using

                        DISPLAY= nohup sh install-nvidia-debian.sh

                        too with my script. At least my script tries to unload the nvidia kernel module (from an older driver) first and also it enables dkms. I certainly know that you can use -aKk kernel-ver but dkms is much smarter... Without unloading old nvidia modules first you have to reboot.

                          Doesn't nvidia have some kind of package build system like fglrx?

                            Nope, i tried with a debian stub to do that, but it is no real fun because every few driver releases you needed to adjust it. That's not that problematic when you do that for a single driver manually but when you want to do that automatically for future releases you will not have so much fun. I stopped the idea after a few tries. EnvyNG did just that what you wanted, no idea if it still works - like 195.xx series has additional libs not there in older versions, but maybe it is more tricky than my approach - i did not use it

                              He seems to be trying to make this hard.
                              1. Download the driver.
                              2. Make it executable.
                                (If you're using Nautilus you could right click the downloaded file and change permissions that way, or use the chmod command.)
                              I've covered the above proceedure, but for Kubuntu here. (Look for Steps 2 & 3.) You should be able to generalize these instructions across to Gnome.


                              Having done the above, the next stage is to actually run the installer. Remember, if you didn't download the driver into the home directory, you should cd to the directory where the driver file is before running it.
                              1. Press CTRL-ALT-F1 (This takes you to a text console.)
                              2. Login with an administrator account. The one created with the Ubuntu installer will do.
                              3. type sudo stop gdm (You'll need to re-enter your password again after this)
                              4. type sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.03-pkg2.run
                                Then you need to go through the installer, following the prompts.
                                (Remember, you should let the installer modify xorg.conf when it asks if this system has never had the nVidia blob installed.)

                              If all goes well, it will tell you so, and if it doesn't you can upload the installer log file here so that we can analyze why it failed, and formulate a solution.

                              Assuming that the installer succeeded, you would type:
                              sudo start gdm

                              and hey, presto you should have a graphical log-in screen. Log in and enjoy the new driver.
