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:Code:(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?Code:Section "Device" Identifier "Device0" Driver "nvidia" VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation" BoardName "GeForce GT 520" BusID "PCI:01:00:0" EndSection
Any help would be appreciated!
