Problem:NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7185 on RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro

Hello:

I'm running Ubuntu (Linux version 2.6.20-15-386), and trying to install the Latest Legacy GPU driver (1.0-7185) on RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro.

I finished installing the driver, but when I try to start X, it occured an error: Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module!

Here is the nvidia-bug-report


I've tried several solutions which I found in the forum but they did not work. The problem really bothers me.:confused:

Thanks!
-Mike

Your dmesg shows version conflict. Ensure only the 7185 version is present. Is there a 9755 package installed?

Code:

[ 1499.436000] NVRM: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 Kernel Module  1.0-7185  Mon Apr  2 18:29:54 PDT 2007

Yeah, I intalled 9755 package before and remove it by in the Menu later.

Now.
I've removed some package whick I think will be related to 9755, and reinstalled the 7185. And the error still exists and 9755 still appeares in nvidia-bug-report.log.

Could you give me any advice how to remove the 9755 package completely?

Thank you!
=========================================

Great!

It's done!

Though I still don't know how to remove the 9755 package completely, I know one basic method: remove all of the system and reinstall it.

After that the problem is never occured.:)

But why my screen resolution is only 800*600 and refresh rate can just reach 60Hz ?? It seemed to be lower than before. what can I do?

You should read the forum sticky posts.

Thanks, I found a thread here

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=439800&page=2

testube_babies suggest //in fact, it maybe come from netllama
1) In Section "Monitor" of xorg.conf, change the Horizsync and Vertrefresh numbers to a wide range, eg 20-100 for both.

I just added these:
Option "HorizSync" "CRT-0: 50-110; DFP-0: 40-70"
Option "VertRefresh" "CRT-0: 60-120; DFP-0: 60"

2) In Section "Device" insert Option "UseEDIDFreqs" "False" to override the faulty monitor detection. //If I do not add this, the resolution is still ok

It's O.K. now!

PS:
Here is a link to how to install NVIDIA driver, the step is clear, It maybe useful to some one:
