    15 crashing with Nvidia drivers (any version)

    I have LM15 with MATE but this also happens with Cinnamon. I think this may be related to the proprietary Nvidia driver and something about HDMI. I tried many versions listed under Driver Manager and I need it so using nouveau wouldn't be a real fix here.


    SOMETIMES I get a oops error on boot forcing me to reset a couple of times, eventually it'll boot and work fine. This also happened on recovery boot.

    Does seem to be fine with nouveau drivers but then Chrome won't use compositing and is slower.

    Code:

    Re: 15 crashing with Nvidia drivers (any version)

    There seem to be issues for some with the 13.04 kernel that ships with Mint 15. Doing a "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" will install a slightly newer kernel from Raring updates. This resolved my stability issues (frequent kernel panics) when I tried Mint 15.

    Re: 15 crashing with Nvidia drivers (any version)

    Once after booting I got the message

    the greeter application appears to be crashing attempting to use a different one.

    Clicking OK would flicker the screen and the message appear again. I don't know if related

    Thanks done that and updated the kernel. So far it's good after a couple of boots, I will report if I get another error.

    I hadn't had any freeze/Kernel panic/oops error since that update so I will consider it fixed.

    Re: 15 crashing with Nvidia drivers (any version)

    After I updated it was fine for some days.
    Today I have same problem.

    And that is why those that ranted about Unity were right: Because when forces are divided in smaller groups like Linuxmint, KDE, Unity,... bugs will stay forever. If Ubuntu were giving a normal desktop option as Interface as LinuxMint is doing, we would have less problems.

    Sad days for Linux users that need CUDA in Nvidia cards. I had to go back to LinuxMint14. The 15 is just not working realibly, I had to restart today three times the 15 and you can't spent 10 minutes only to boot. So I go back to LinuxMint14.

    Re: 15 crashing with Nvidia drivers (any version)

    HA! SOLVEEEEEED!!!!

    You need to upgrade the kernel so Nvidia propietary drivers don't crash anymore and you can use at last CUDA without having to reboot so many times because the boot crashes.

    So enter this in the terminal to upgrade and solve the problem:

    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

    it upgrades the linux-headers to 3.0.28 if I remember correctly it said (the LinuxMint15 by default is 3.0.19)
    SOLVED!

    LOL I see it was said in post 2. But man, the rule is to mark as SOLVED a thread or people thinks the bug continues and instead reading the thread they search for a solution.
    If it were marked as SOLVED I would read it to find the post with the solution! tsk, tsk...

    Re: 15 crashing with Nvidia drivers (any version)

    Had the same issue here and 'sudo apt-get dist-upgrade' dit solve it indeed. Thanks.
    However, I have to get of my chest that these things really shouldn't t be happening anymore! I recently returned to linux after 3 years of using Windows (7). When you boot up your computer in the morning to quickly sort out a few things with very little time and the next thing you know is that the x server does not start, then all you can say is "this is really, really bad".

    Re: 15 crashing with Nvidia drivers (any version)

    No, they shouldn't happen.

    My understanding, easily wrong, is that the problem with the kernel was discovered just prior to 13.04's release date. I would have voted to delay the release. More importantly, if that's what happened, it points to serious inadequacies in the testing process. This problem, in fact, was reflected in derivative distributions that packaged the faulty kernel despite reports of this issue. For example, Mint 15 is based on 13.04, and uses the same kernel. On the day of its release, a considerable number of kernel panic reports were posted in a very long thread at Mint's blog.

    Re: 15 crashing with Nvidia drivers (any version)

    I'm running linux mint 15 cinnamon, which is based on raring I think. The sudo apt-get dist-upgrade did nothing for me. The cinnamon desktop freezes and I even have problems with LXDE. X is unstable for me with my Nvidia GTX 280 card. This is very frustrating. Do the nuveau drivers work at all for nvidia? It would be unfortunate to lose cuda though.
