View Full Version : [ubuntu] module nv not found

November 3rd, 2008, 05:36 AM
I just upgraded to Intrepid, and I can't use my nvidia card because the module is not found.

I have a dual-monitor setup, onboard Intel and pci card GeForce2 MX200. I had the binary nvidia drivers installed (I don't know why; I can't use 3d since the onboard controller doesn't support it). They aren't supported under the latest kernel, so I uninstalled them. I have xserver-xorg-video-nv installed, but when I do "sudo modprobe nv," it tells me the module is not found. In Xorg.0.log.old, the only line with nv in it is the following:

(--) PCI: (0@3:0:0) nVidia Corporation NV11DDR [GeForce2 MX200] rev 178, Mem @ 0xde000000/0, 0xc0000000/0, BIOS @ 0x????????/65536

I'm probably doing something dumb here, as I really don't understand the process, but I do know it has worked fine in the past. I tried using an older kernel (I'm now on 2.6.24-21-generic), but it hasn't helped. Any help would be appreciated.
