I know there's already quite a few threads on this and some have kinda of helped, but I still can't get this working.
I have an HTPC hooked up to my Panasonic 1080p Plasma with an HDMI cable.
TV: Panasonic TC-P50G15
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L P45
Vid: Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce GT 520 GV-N520SL-1GI
I originally couldn't get audio through HDMI with Nouveau and I read that it needs the Nvidia proprietary driver.
Tried Ubuntu 12.04.1, 12.10, Lubuntu 12.04.1, 12.10, XBMCbuntu 11.0, 12.0 RC3 with the following.
What I've tried (I fresh re-installed each of the above OS's after each try):
Fresh install, install all software updates, activate nvidia-current in jockey. Reboot, shows blank aubergine screen right after GRUB loads. Fixed GRUB and Plymouth using this tutorial: http://jechem.blogspot.ca/2011/04/fi...ubuntu-on.html
It then will show the Plymouth them but then boots straight to tty and startx then fails.
I've tried with the x-swat ppa and the xorg-edgers ppa. I've also tried installing the Nvidia drivers from the website using this tut: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...postcount=1124
I've tried with nvidia-current, nvidia-current-updates, nvidia-experimental-310, and the newest on nvidia.com
My Xorg.0.log has this error no matter what I try
My xorg.conf looks like:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI:1:0:0.
of course I need to end this post with the requisite "it all worked in windows 7"...grrr, don't you just hate reading that?
VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
BoardName "GeForce GT 520"
Any help would be appreciated!
