Well, this is my first post here, so I am a newbie here. But any help I can get I will take. I am having issues after I installed my Nividia Gforce 5500 graphics card tonight. Here is my system before I installed my Nvidia card:

Dell E310 Desktop
P4 w HT
Dual DVD Drives
Integrated Intel video (i810)
Integrated audio
Dell 1707fp screen

I first started using various Linux distros over a year ago, but did not have time to tweak my computer, so I went back to jail. (Windows) I decided I wanted to try the new Ubuntu 8.04, and I installed it on my computer at the end on March. When I installed Ubuntu, my computer was standard, even the integrated video I used. I continually tweaked on it getting Compiz and Emerald working beautify. Then I got AWN working great, and also XP working on VirtualBox. I even tried Wine, I have only gotten limited apps to work on it though. But the experience has been great, and I love tweaking my machine every chance I can get.

But there is one problem I have, getting my external video card to work properly. I thought I would give my Nvida card one last shot. I installed it again tonight, I went into my BIOS, switched it over to external video card, and rebooted my machine. Everything worked like it should. The login screen was at 1280 x 1040 resolution, I logged in, and my desktop was at normal resolution again - 1280 x 1040, but my Compiz or Emerald was not working. So I ran the Envy NG installer, and it said everything installed correctly, so I rebooted. Upon reboot, there was so abnormal lagging (It was searching for the right resolution to use) and the prompt to adjust screen settings popped up. I selected my screen resolution 1280 x 1040 and in the drivers tab, both the i810 Intel and the Nvida drivers are listed. As the desktop appeared the screen resolution defaulted back to 800 x 600. I cannot adjust my screen resolution or my driver. I have tried running 'nvidia-xconfig' as root-

Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".

WARNING: The CorePointer device was not specified explicitly in the layout;
using the first mouse device.


WARNING: Unable to determine CoreKeyboard; will rely on X server's built-in
default configuration.

Backed up file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' as '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'
New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'

That is the result in terminal after running 'nvidia-xconfig'.

I then tried looking for my restricted drivers tab under administration, but it is gone. I do not know what to do, but I want to use my external card to run more Compiz settings. Just a recap, I have tried these:
1. Tried Envy NG and it did not work
2. 'nvidia-xconfig' got the result above
3. No restricted drivers tab in administration

Are the the drivers conflicting and my computer does not know which one to use? If that is the case, how do I get rid or turn off the Intel video drivers? Keep in mind this card uses a standard PCI bus, not the new express bus like new computers have. Would this create a conflict? When I run Envy, everything runs ok as I watch it run in terminal. It prompts me to reboot,I reboot, and my screen reverts back to the 800 x 600 resolution and the Nvidia server does not run.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

not a real expert on these matters, but my guess is that there is a conflict between the integrated video drivers and the drivers for the geforce 5500...if the integrated card works well, i would just let it do the work...but if you want the external card to work, i am sorry but i have no solution for you

it sounds to me like xorg may be trying to configure your intel vid card with nvidia drivers and is reverting to default graphics cuz it doesn't make sense. I could be way off there, either way i have a suggestion for you to try.

first run

lspci
find your nvidia card in the listing and not the numbers on the left.. should be something like 01:00.0

in the device section of your xorg.conf there is an option where you can specify the bus id of the card. This line can appear anywhere in the device section.


BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
the 1:0:0 should of course match whatever the lspci readout was. Hopefully that will solve the problem. That line may or may not already exist.

empthollow-

ok, I ran 'lspci' and noticed these two outputs:

'00:02.0 Display controller: Intel Corporation 82915G/GV/910GL Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 04)'

'03:01.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5500] (rev a1)'

So it is seeing both, the Intel and the Nvidia. I opened my /etc/x11 folder and found some interesting facts. There are four xorg.conf files: xorg.conf, xorg.conf1, xorg.conf2, and xorg.conf3. Also there is extra failsafe and backup files too. Should I leave those alone or delete them?

Upon opening xorg.conf this is what is inside:

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildd@palmer) Tue Jan 22 12:05:14 UTC 2008

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by failsafeDexconf, using
# values from the debconf database and some overrides to use vesa mode.
#
# You should use dexconf or another such tool for creating a "real" xorg.conf
# For example:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

I can see already it is trying to install the Nvidia drivers onto the Intel chipset. This seems so easy to fix, but how do I get rid of or turn off the Intel chipset?



Thanks

Does anyone know how to disable or delete drivers in Ubuntu? There is a conflict between the intergrated Intel graphics and my external Nvidia card. It wants to try to install the Nvidia drivers on the Intel intergrated grpahics and not the external card. Does anyone have any solutions? Help?

ok, i think i have a fix for you, in your server layout section the screen section is listed as screen1, as it turns out that is applying the nvidia drivers to the intel busid. If you change screen1 in the server layout section to read screen2 like this

Screen 0 "screen2" 0 0
you should be good. This will cause xorg to ignore your intel card as the screen2 section is pointing to the correct busid for the nvidia card.

As for the other xorg.conf files, you do not have change their names or delete them, they are not read by the X server.

Does it help at all if you change:



Screen 0 "screen1" 0 0


to



Screen 0 "screen2" 0 0


in xorg.conf?

o.k. I went to the xorg.conf and made some changes. They worked the first time when I booted up, I then opened: applications - other - screens and graphics; I noticed there was no Intel driver listed. Then I rebooted again and everything reverted back to e the way it was 800 x 600. I notice on bootup it does not now what to do when it wants to load the screen, so it reverts back to default. Here is the output of my current xorg.conf file so you can see it for yourselves.

your server layout section points to the Default Layout screen section which uses the intel graphics card which is commented out. The server cannot find a configured video device to use so it guesses and uses some default. if you change the "Default Layout" in your server layout section to say "screen1" the X server will see the nvidia as your video device. When you are done your server layout section should look like this.

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
screen 0 "screen1" 0 0
EndSection
In this particular server layout you are not specifying a input device, i do not know whether this will cause a problem for you of if it will be auto detected.

Dear sir,

I really think you should give enVy a shot.
http://www.albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html

Use these steps:
1. Install Ubuntu proprietary drivers.
2. Install enVy [Not NG in your case nVidia 5500] (http://www.albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html)
3. Reboot and experience low graphics.
4. Run enVy in either text or GUI mode. Remove old nVidia driver first.
5. Now reinstall new NVidia driver. If errors come up concerning dpkg, do what it says and resume installation of the NVidia driver.
6. Enjoy!

Good luck and tell me how it goes!

HI and have you disabled the intel graphics from within bios on the motherboard?

motomick
May 20th, 2008, 06:02 AM
Well, I have a Dell, so my options in the BIOS are very limited, and the only thing I van do is to switch it over to say I have an external card, but I do not have the ability to totally turn it off in BIOS, it is not an option.

Second, I have been working with Envy, but the legacy version will not install. My only choice is the NG, then I can choose which driver I want to install, or it can do it automatically. But for some reason it wants to enable the Nvidia graphics on the Intel chipset, and I have been modifying the xorg.conf file to try to get it to work, but to no avail yet.

Thanks for all of your help so far!

Envy is still not doing the trick, upon boot I get the screen to adjust the graphics, I try adjust the graphics, it reverts back the original 800 x 600. Here is my xorg.conf file so far:

I try to follow the modifications I need to do, but this is one SOB of a computer!

the xorg.conf really looks like it should be working at this point. I can think of only two other things.
1. A simple mistake i have definitely made before - make sure the monitor is plugged into the nvidia card and not the intel card.
2. take all of the "fluff" out of the xorg.conf, basically, if it isn't part of the necessary config for the card just delete it. (I can take a look at that for you tomorrow if you like)
good luck.

I was wondering if I can just delete the extra stuff. I will try it later tonight when I have time and give you an update. I have noticed one thing with xorg.conf file. When I go to screen & graphics and I specify my monitor (Dell 1707) it adds a bunch of extra stuff or 'fluff'. On that same note, is Envy supposed to rewrite the entire xorg.conf file? I noticed when I run Envy it gives me a fresh copy of the file. It is kind of nice instead if working with one full of 'fluff'.

I will let you know about my progress tonight.

Thanks

I tried in vien to properly configure the xorg.conf file, but I gave up. Somehow it reads the two video cards and assumes then there is two monitors. But the monitor is hooked up to the external, but assumes there is two monitors.

Thanks for everyones help!
