View Full Version : [ubuntu] 10.04 Video problems?

I have a program I'm trying to run under Wine which is segfaulting without a backtrace. The Wine gurus over at the Wine forum have said that this is symptomatic of badly installed video drivers, rather than a fault with Wine, which should produce a backtrace on a segfault.

I have tried reinstalling the drivers, but the program still segfaults, so I've come over here to see if there's any advice I can get on the video drivers before taking it back to the Wine forum.

I have an nVidia card and am using the nVidia-current restricted driver. I have purged the nouveau driver using sudo apt-get --purge remove xserver-xorg-video-nouveau as instructed in the community documentation; however, an lspci shows that the nouveau kernel module is still there - could this be the problem and if so, how do I fix it?

Output from lspci follows. Many thanks,

David Shaw

If the nvidia-driver works fine in ubuntu,I
doubt that your wine problem is related to this....

But,if you want to test,add "nouveau" at the bottom of
/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

And can you share what program that it is in this thread?

OK, so I've purged nouveau from the system and now I've blacklisted it in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf as you suggested and it's *still* listed as a kernel module after a reboot.

I have confirmed that the package really has been purged and that the entry in blacklist.conf is still there.

Oh, and Wine still segfaults on this one application - others work just fine.

Sorry, should have said.

The program in question is Grand Designs 3D Renovation & Interior; installed in its own prefix with Windows Media Player 10 installed through Winetricks.

..have a link?


Why did you install the nvidia-driver manually?

The Wine forum topic is at http://forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?t=11272

I didn't. I did a clean install of 10.04, then went to System > Administration > Hardware drivers and installed the nVidia-173 driver. As a result of this problem and the response I got to it over on the Wine forum, I went back into Hardware drivers and switched to the nVidia-current driver to see if this might clear the problem, which it didn't.
