    Nvidia-current v. 310.19

    There is a new nvidia-current beta version available from xorg-edgers PPA (RR branch).
    The version is 310.19.

    Working fine here.

    It's just warning... No harm produced as far as I can tell...
    Lot of bugs are filed against this and elsewhere...

    Re: Nvidia-current v. 310.19

    An observation here , that might help others.

    I downloaded (2 days ago) 310.14 beta driver from Nvidia's site
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-d...14-driver.html

    To test it with my Nvidia GT430. What I observed is when I installed the .run file , during installation asked me to blacklist nouveau. Installation failed due to nouveau loaded module.
    I blacklisted nouveau and booted with vesa (low graphics) and then installation completed successfully and the driver working good since then.
    Until this time I thought the only requirement was to stop the X , but seems a new requirement now is to have nouveau module unloaded.
    So , try to install with nouveau blacklisted. (manual by you).

    Thanks

    Then I stand corrected. My (ATI/Asus) machine does not produce any harm due to this warning...

    Well if one just upgrades from the previous nvidia-current version, then nouveau driver is blacklisted.
    That is, installing nvidia-current will automatically blacklist nouveau driver.

    Re: Nvidia-current v. 310.19

    i cant beleive what have happened:
    - due to previous comment, i've purged the "nouveau" driver (installed: vesa, fbdev, modesetting)
    - then did a cold reboot
    - was expecting a low graphic, but got a normal definition
    - then i've checked the active video driver : "nouveau"
    its really purged, but still active after a reboot

    - well going ahead: activate edgers ppa and install nvidia 310.19
    - got the kmod error
    - then i've rebooted: surprisingly i got alot of art-deco before getting lightdm
    - and everything seems ok: jockey show me nvidia activated that time

    Re: Nvidia-current v. 310.19

    Is your /tmp mounted noexec? If so, the update-initramfs issue might be related to Debian Bug #576678; at least it seems familiar.

    /tmp: [exec] needs to be mounted exec at package configuration time, or there could be problems with the maintainer scripts, e.g. see Bug#576678: initramfs-tools: breaks but continues if /tmp is mounted with noexec option (fixed on 08-Jun-2010 in v0.96.1).
    Does
    Code:
    grep \ /tmp /etc/mtab
    show noexec as a mount option? If so, try remounting exec before running update-initramfs (or apt-get, which will call it when appropriate). You can do that with:
    Code:
    sudo mount /tmp -o remount,exec

    hm, get no output, and /tmp is not mounted at all

    oem@oem-desktop:~$ grep \ /tmp /etc/mtab
    oem@oem-desktop:~$ sudo grep \ /tmp /etc/mtab
    [sudo] password for oem:
    oem@oem-desktop:~$ sudo mount /tmp -o remount,exec
    mount: /tmp not mounted or bad option
