Remember to try version 7667 too
You mean instead of NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7667-pkg1.run ?
I don't know guy!
I wanted to try this flavor of linux to see if it had alot of merit. The GUI is great, but frankly, I run BeOs 5 professional and it is more compatibls with all of my hardware than Ubuntu Breezy is!!
You have to do similar things to update software etc, but essencially it's more up to date than Ubuntu! I can play dvds right out of the box, not so with my Ubuntu!
My nvidia fx5200 PCi card is recognized right out of the box, not so Ubuntu!My wacom table works about the same on both Be and Ubuntu, crappy.
As I said BeOs 5, dead since 1999, is slightly more advanced than ubuntu Breezy!, And BeOs 5 is not very compatible with alot of hardware!
I will try one more time with this damn video card, if it doesn't work, I am going back to BeOS.
I will let you know
Does BeOS lets you use the latest nVidia drivers? If you just want your 3D acceleration to work, you should just use Synaptic and install the nVidia drivers from there. That's the easy way, you should've just said so!Originally Posted by coz
Follow the following guide if you want to install via Synaptic:
That's the way I installed my nVidia drivers, they're not the lastest version but they work and it's easy to install.
Ok I have tried everything including downloading the nvidia drivers from synaptic. NOTHING works. I am goiing to give up on this one I think.
I have to use theonboard intel video , which is crap and uses too many system resources for this machine. The video card would be great but apparently I can't do it. I alwys get the message, regarless of the driver verison I use, that there is either NO gcc or the wrong version.
That's as far as I can get.
The drivers from synaptic always screw up the system I get a weird screen, all blue with white backdrop for the font, saying that the video is set up incorrectly and xserver cannot start.
The drivers from synaptic are the nvidia-glx. I have a PCI nvidia card NOT an AGP card.
Have you made sure that you're not getting conflicts between the onboard and the addon video card? Do you need to disable the onboard graphics?
yes the onboard graphics have to be disabled in the bios.
Doesn't matter. They don't work!
The error is about xconfig and xserver
After diableing the onboard graphics I get this error
Can you post the errors again? It's not showing.Originally Posted by cosimo
I thought I had followed your guide to the letter, however I cannot install the NVIDIA drivers. My error log:
