GT220 Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Driver : Unable to load kernel module
 
1 Attachment(s)
I have a problem with driver installation whatever the protocol choice and driver version.

First protocol : I used the driver manager give by Ubuntu and the installation success. But after reboot, an error message appear and say :
"Failed to initialized the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the system's kernel log..."

So I try a manual installation. An after compilation success, another message error appear and say :
"Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s)."

Notice that I stop the X server to do this installation.
You have the enclose file log in this message.

Do you have any explanations ?
Yours Sincerely.

------------------------------------------------

Protocol:
- Ubuntu 10.04 LTS installation
- Operating System Update
- Driver installation

Configuration :
- Motherboard : Asus P5Q deluxe
- Graphic Card : TwinTech GeForce GT 220
- Screen : Zalman ZMT ZM-M220W(D)

You have the nouveau kernel module loaded. You'll have to blacklist it in order for the nvidia driver to work.

I already blacklist some drivers

This is what I add to blacklist.conf :
blacklist vga16fb
blacklist nouveau
blacklist rivafb
blacklist nvidiafb
blacklist rivatv

But there is no difference and the problem is still unsolved.

You may have added it to the blacklist.conf, but as you can see from the nvidia-installer log file, nouveau is clearly loaded:

Code:

  [  11.804364] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: Allocating FIFO number 2
Did you reboot? Did you start up X afterwards, using the nouveau driver?

Did you reboot?
yes I reboot after the adding in the blacklist.conf

Did you start up X afterwards, using the nouveau driver?
After the adding, I restart X but I don't know if it were using the nouveau driver. I will try to uninstall it and install manually the Nvidia driver.
