Problem installing nvidia driver
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hi all,

I'm not being able to install the nvidia 180 driver for my GeForce 6200 on Ubuntu 9.04 - Jaunty Jackalope.

I've tried with:
- System -> Administration -> Hardware, activating the 180 nvidia driver
- checking the xorg.conf:
Quote:

Section "Module"
Load "glx"
Disable "dri2"
EndSection
...
Section "Device"
Identifier "Device0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
EndSection
- tried to install the 185 new driver (which didn't change the results)

The xorg log shows in different tries the following:
Quote:

(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)
Quote:

(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libglx.so
dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libglx.so: undefined symbol: _nv000046gl
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libglx.so
(II) UnloadModule: "glx"
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 7)
The sympthom is that after the Ubuntu logo loading black screen which hides the boot sequence, when gdm starts, the system hangs. It doesn't respond to the keyboard.
I have then to reboot in safe mode and restore the X, which makes my xorg load with the basic "nv" driver.

I've attached two generated files from the nvidia-bug-report.sh script, one from the console withouth X and the seccond after restoring X (using the generic "nv" driver)

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Ignacio

This problem is caused when an old version of libGLcore.so.1 is installed, usually because one was installed to an incorrect location. Did you previously install the driver via the .run package? If so, please run "nvidia-installer --uninstall" and then reinstall the Ubuntu driver packages.

I've tried so many times with the .run package, tried also with the Ubuntu 180's aptitude installer.

I'll try that now. Thanks!

Well, besides I was able to run the "nvidia-installer --uninstall" command, it's still hanging when GDM starts

Here're the new bug-report files.
I don't have now a direct problem with glx, so it's strange and I'm confused :(

Can you get something more from these new logs?
Thanks in advance,

Ignacio

Unfortunately, the log ends right after loading libglx, which is typically a symptom of the dynamic linker calling abort() and terminating the X server unexpectedly. Can you please run "startx > stderr.log 2>&1" from a terminal and then attach the resulting stderr.log?

I've tried several times with commands like

startx > stderr.log 2>&1

2>&1 startx > stderr.log

2>&1 bash -x startx > stderr.log

nohup 2>&1 startx > stderr.log &

echo > stderr.log < `bash -x startx`

But it seems that before the script gets something to write in the log, the screen activates and crashes, hanging the Ubuntu. Also, the keyboard doesn't respond when is hanged, neither the BloqNum or the other led-lighted keys work while is hanged.

I'll look forward the log of the startx binary

thanks,

Ignacio
