    I've disabled GLSL and OpenGL but the problem is that If I switch OpenGL to like pbuffer or backbuffer anything with wine is choopy, GLSL disabled = missing parts on game/character.

    Unhappy Re: nVidia latest Drivers - How to install - (180.xx - 185.xx - 190.xx)

    I just installed the x86_64.185.18.31 drivers and when i reboot i get the error, linux running in low-resolution... he doesnt detect the drivers or something... i installed the drivers by clicking yes on every question, because im not an expert...

    i had the 180 installed with the envyng program.. which work perfectly btw (maybe updating to 185 is unnessecary?)

    any help please? is there something with the opengl or so that i should now?

    i have an acer 5738 laptop with t6400 duo core and Nvidia GeForce G105M videocart..

    I don't know this is the same or not but I was told that before updating your drivers you need to first sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
    then remove the current drivers by sudo sh NVIDIA-xxx.run --uninstall, it will tell you it will do its best to uninstall the drivers. Go ahead and press ctrl+alt+F1 and log in, once that is done type sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop now just do the samething you did before and they should work.

    I successfully installed the driver without build essential. I found that to be very odd, is it possible without it? (I am just curious, I usually use debs anyway but I tested the Nvidia sh installer.)

    I have found that way to be reliable. It may not be the easiest way, but so far, it has always worked.

    I have the latest linux headers, now my question is, how do I uninstall the current drivers, because I dont have the NVIDIA-xxx.run file for the current drivers, since I installed them using envyNG...

    some help?

    edit: can I just open my synoptics package manager and uninstall everything with nvidia in it??

    I did the following:

    sudo apt-get --purge remove nvidia-glx* nvidia-kernel-common nvidia-settings
    sudo rm /etc/init.d/nvidia-*
    sudo update-rc.d nvidia-kernel remove

    and then reinstalled the drivers with some weird errors I ignored and thought now it's all wrong, but then rebooted and it finally works

    So does anyone have a solution to my problem? I've already got workarounds for it but they don't fix my problem. My really question is what is "libglcore.so.1" and this output mean.

    Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0x00000004 in 32-bit code (0x7d3195f8).
    Register dump:

    EIP:7d3195f8 ESP:0033e214 EBP:7c487d74 EFLAGS:00010246( R- -- I Z- -P- )

    ESI:00000000 EDI:00000000

    then I get

    Backtrace:

    Trouble Trouble. I installed the nvidia binary NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.14-pkg1 it worked so great when NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.29-pkg1 came I was estastic to upgrade. After a day or two use I got white snow dots all over my display. I blamed the new driver. So I uninstalled the newsest driver and reinstalled the older NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.1-pkg1. After a couple of days I noticed that xorg was consuming quite of bit of resources and not allowing me to watch HD programing. I took it upon my to added Avenard's testing repository and try to install his version of the NVIDIA 185 drivers and now I have no playback and no I idea on what I have do to maybe take a course of remedying my beloved mythbox. I have trying using apt pinning to revert to the Ubuntu version but it doesn't seem to work.


    Code:
      nvidia-glx-190: Depends: nvidia-190-libvdpau (>= 190.18) but it is not going to be installed
