    Phoronix: NVIDIA 195.36.24 Linux Driver Released

    While NVIDIA's official 195.36.18 driver has been around for about one month, the Santa Clara engineers are getting ready to pump out a new official update. In fact, before the week ended, NVIDIA put out the 195.36.24 pre-release, which may be marked as their official stable release this week...

        Why are the nVidia drivers named like this?

        NVIDIA 195.36.24 with support for a new board series and has a number like this? Why not 196.1.12 or something to that effect?

        Anyone with a clue?

          Fixed in this release is also a problem that caused occasional red flashes during X-Video playback.
          Finally!

          Although I thought that had been fixed in the latest 190.xx release that I had from one of the PPAs.

            ok i try this driver helping a frend install this driver...

            and we fail...

            in an geforce 8600 we install 195.36.24 over a ubuntu 10.04+ NVIDIA 195.36.15 and .... it fails...

            the NVIDIA 195.36.24 fails to uninstall NVIDIA 195.36.15 and after the install of NVIDIA 195.36.24 the system does not start X at start

            if we install the driver on every startup in bash after that we can do a 'startx'

            befor that some old NVIDIA 195.36.15 kernel modules was found and he do not find the .24 ones..

            in the end... we are down and rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

            fuck of nvidia,,, next day we reinstall kubuntu 10.04 complete and try to install this fucking fuck driver again without broken NVIDIA 195.36.15 files.

              The only failure here is your failure to read the instructions. You uninstall the old driver first and then install the new. It even warns you when you install the driver. The other factor is that you probably first started with a prepackaged for ubuntu instead of using the actual nvidia installer. Considering I did the EXACT same install of the driver on a Ubuntu 10.04 system with a 8600 card with no troubles points to user error.

                Your incompetence has nothing to do with the driver itself.

                  LOL the installer !! the installer! talks abaut HE!!!!! uninstalls the old driver!
                  but the installer! the nvidia install do not uninstall the old one!

                    oh yes... thats true.. but 'users' are always incompetence!

                    if the nvidia installer fails on my incompetence the nvidia installer fails on any non skilled user!

                    i install nvidia and ati/amd cloused source drivers for 7 years now on linux..

                    and only nvidia fails to uninstall the old driver first at the install script !

                      For lucid that's really a special case, the PURE ati-installer fails and so does the nvidia installer. What do you learn from this lession?

                        Open your eyes!
                        X can't start, if the initrd loads the old kernel-module!
                        And the installer can't remove modules, which are in the initrd and that is not the fault of the installer, it's the fault from the OS!

                          in the end i rm xorg.conf and now we use vesa? or nouveau
                          Has he tried the bundled driver or did he go straight to the latest one from the site?

                          If self installing the Web based driver he'll have to blacklist modules but even that will work.

                          Make a file called something like

                          Code:

                          /etc/modprobe.d/blacklistnvidia.conf

                          and throw this into it

                          Code:

                          blacklist nouveau
                          blacklist lbm-nouveau
                          blacklist nvidia-173
                          blacklist nvidia-96



                          Kano:
                          Basically running ati/nvidia run installers is a very bad idea on lucid. It is very likely that it will break during update or when jockey wants to install something. The fglrx package for example tries to uninstall the files which the ati-installer copied onto the system, but fails because of the install has already been modified that you need an override value to "really" execute the uninstaller. the nvidia-installer has got an --uninstall option too but most likely it damages the system too. lucid has got too clever driver switching which uses a subdir for each driver and change ld search path while installing a binary driver. you could even install nvidia+fglrx the same time and switch with

                          sudo update-alternates --config gl_conf
                          sudo ldconfig
                          sudo update-initramfs -u

                          and adjusted /etc/X11/xorg.conf - for oss just delete the file. Because only the ati installer provides a switch to build lucid packages i did not update my nvidia script. Its too hard to integrate that cleanly in a non packaged way. Best reinstall if you tried something like that for nvidia and use an nvidia ppa for driver updates. my script tries to fix the problems when the ati-installer was used in the wrong way - the "correct" way was impossible anyway without tricks as ati is in 99% of all cases too stupid to supply correct packageing that suits for the driver - which they only need to fetch from fglrx-packageing.git in a timely manner.

                            Again you fail to read what is there. The installer DETECTS another driver installed and yes as it says it "Attempts to remove it". There is no guaranteed as packagers of various distro's tend to move items around from where the installer installs them. Again you fail at even reading what is printed on the screen right in front of you.

                            The only failure is your inability to read.

                              Just use them from a PPA on ubuntu since the installer from nvidia.com doesn't work with lucid yet, they'll be in this one:
