NVIDIA drivers Version mismatch
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 (2.6.35-31-generic kernel) to get XBMC running with a Flat Panel Sony Bravia TV.

Everything went fine except taking audio out of HDMI cable, that is, TV speakers. So in in the meantime I have PC speakers.

My onboard graphics card is: VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C77 [GeForce 8200] (rev a2). As far as I have read, i do not need legacy drivers.

I installed the latest version (290.10) located here http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-d...10-driver.html in order to try fix the problem.

For some reason I can't get to know, after playing around several days and reboot PC, graphical X doesn't start. The dmesg is:

NVRM: API mismatch: the client has the version 290.10, but
NVRM: this kernel module has the version 260.19.06. Please
NVRM: make sure that this kernel module and all NVIDIA driver
NVRM: components have the same version.

To things be more confusing, I run this script http://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphic...ia-versions.sh

which gave me the result 'Your card is supported by the default drivers and version 173.' Which is a legacy version???


1. Which version should I use (in theory to solve HDMI audio output problem, if related)
2. How I fix this (I started this manual http://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers but it is going to be endless).

Thanks for any hint you may provide.

Re: NVIDIA drivers Version mismatch
When you run the driver installer, does it complain about something, like missing kernel headers? If so, install those (linux-headers-2.6.35-whatever) and run the installer again.

Re: NVIDIA drivers Version mismatch
1. rmmod nvidia
2. rebuild your initrd
3. reinstall the driver

Re: NVIDIA drivers Version mismatch
Looks like your OS already has nvidia driver package installed. Remove nvidia driver package with synaptic OR apt-get and then install nvidia installer .run file.
