GeForce 210 fails with 195.36.31 & kernel 2.6.32-21|2.6.32-22
I'm trying to install the nVidia Linux driver, version 195.36.31, on Ubuntu 10.04 i32 (Lucid Lynx).
I've tested the installation against the kernel version that shipped with the distro (2.6.32-21) and 2.6.32-22.
On both kernel versions the nvidia.ko kernel module loads, but when I attempt to launch the X server the process fails. The following error is logged by syslogd:
NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x27:0x28:1094)
NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed
I've made sure that I've deinstalled the nouveau package and blacklisted the module. Also, some threads suggested that "vmalloc=256M" should be added to the GRUB default cmd line. I've confirmed that the size is increased when I 'cat /proc/meminfo', but that doesn't help either:
VmallocTotal: 524288 kB
VmallocUsed: 34920 kB
VmallocChunk: 480892 kB
It does seem asif the PCI ID is correctly detected, if I compare the bus id in xorg.conf with the value from lspci:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT218 [GeForce 210]
