    Re: Hardy and NVIDIA Driver Issue

    ok finally made it work


    1) checked this blacklist file .. nvidia was blacklisted ..

    sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-restricted


    2) realized my grub boot menu was fubared ..was loading kernel 2.6.20.16 generic
    instead of 2.6.24.16 generic

    so simple eh ?? yeah right!

    Re: Hardy and NVIDIA Driver Issue

    for the record, i have upgraded my kernel and reinstalling the nvidia drivers was not difficult. I just had to boot up recovery with the new kernel and run the installer again. Luckily i didnt delete it .

    Does anyone know if the updated kernel and restricted modules from the repos got the nvidia issues fixed? I would like to get rid of nvidia site's driver asap.

    Edit: I didn't notice the kernel and similar updates came from hardy proposed...

    Arrow Re: Hardy and NVIDIA Driver Issue

    i have this card and shouting ur self in the foot would be a positivly enjoyable compared to setting it up

    i use etch by the way and i dont have x when i netinstall so be thankfull of ur low resilution --> i must say the pain is worth it beryl is the best on a 22" mointor with a good card

    i dont know the code tags sorry

    first use

    #apt-get install build-essential

    get the kernel name

    $uname -r

    get the kernal headers

    $apt-cache search $(uname -r)

    install the appropriate pacige

    stop gdm

    #/etc/init.d/gdm stop (i think u need root??)

    (there wont be any windows now so copy the location of wget (ctl+C) or do that first i dont notice as i havent had x at all and have copy the hole damn thing out (ctl+sft+C/V in terminal ctl+C stops what ever ur up to ) )

    remove this i foget why but my little black book of expiriance tells me to (i atualy have real blank black book where i write down the trikes to install or compile complicated stuff) (may work with out)

    #apt purge nvidia-glx

    get the driver (this is for any 64-bit Linux or Unix mechanic, 32bit users look on the site)

    #wget http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...69.12-pkg2.run

    and run it

    #./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-169.12-pkg2.run

    then get gnome back

    #/etc/init.d/gdm start (i think u need root??)

    but beryl wont work well until u mess with the the xorg config file

    i think thats every thing??

    good luck
