Question insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko and can't find my NVIDIA card?

Hello.

I recently upgraded Debian's Kernel package from 2.6.32-4-686 to 2.6.32-5-686 and rebooted. However, I am having problems compiling the driver with the latest Kernel packages.

See http://pastey.net/137242 or http://pastie.org/991807 for my /var/log/nvidia-installer.log and it shows "Kernel module load error: insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko': -1 No such device" and can't find my video card. Uh, what?

$ uname -a
Linux FooBar 2.6.32-5-686 #1 SMP Tue Jun 1 04:59:47 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

Am I missing something?

I also tried uninstalling NVIDIA drivers with /usr/bin/nvidia-uninstall, but that didn't help at all. ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...x86-256.29.run didn't help either.

dmesg: http://pastie.org/991920

What's wrong? Obviously, I can see my text console so I assume my video card is working. Thank you in advance.

2.6.32-5: Exactly the same problem
2.6.32-4: Cannot build NV kernel, because linux-headers-2.6.32-4-686 is missing (NVIDIA driver is particulary running, but without 3D acceleration; nvidia-settings is running too)

I forgot to mention that I have an EVGA GeForce 8800 GT video card (PCIe and 512 MB of RAM).

I am thinking of going back to 2.6.32-4-686 Kernel packages and see if I still have problems.

I'm currently using 2.6.32-4-686, nVIDIA driver is still running, but only with the 2D acceleration.

Currently I have one solution- get and install linux-headers-2.6.32-4-686 (and linux-image-2.6.32-4-686)
Unfortunately, this package is unavailable for unknown reasons in the Debian repository, I don't know why.

Nouveau is loading. It's possible the 2.6.32-5 kernel now includes nouveau, and the 2.6.32-4 kernel didn't. I haven't been keeping very close track of what is happening in the Debian kernel these days, but I'll take a look into it.

Code:
[  200.154123] NVRM: The NVIDIA probe routine was not called for 1 device(s).
[  200.154128] NVRM: This can occur when a driver such as rivafb, nvidiafb or
[  200.154130] NVRM: rivatv was loaded and obtained ownership of the NVIDIA
[  200.154131] NVRM: device(s).
[  200.154135] NVRM: Try unloading the rivafb, nvidiafb or rivatv kernel module
[  200.154136] NVRM: (and/or reconfigure your kernel without rivafb/nvidiafb
[  200.154137] NVRM: support), then try loading the NVIDIA kernel module again.
[  200.154140] NVRM: No NVIDIA graphics adapter probed!
The NVIDIA driver can't load, because nouveau is already using the device. You have to unload nouveau.ko before loading nvidia.ko.

Unfortunately, this is difficult if Nouveau is doing a KMS. You'll have to minimally make sure that nouveau doesn't do a KMS by adding "nouveau.modeset=0" to your kernel boot options. It might also help to blacklist nouveau in /etc/modprobe.d.

Currently I have one solution- get and install linux-headers-2.6.32-4-686 (and linux-image-2.6.32-4-686)
Unfortunately, this package is unavailable for unknown reasons in the Debian repository, I don't know why.
I am going to try the older, installed Kernel version. This is why we should always keep the previous one. I hope it still works!

I can't even remove it:
# rmmod nouveau

# lsmod |grep nouveau

i2c_core 12696 5 nouveau,drm_kms_helper,drm,i2c_algo_bit,i2c_nforce 2
button 3598 1 nouveau

Grrr!!!


What is KMS? And where do I add "nouveau.modeset=0" to my kernel boot? I have never done this before.

For now, I will try /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file, I added to the bottom of the list with:
blacklist nouveau

I hope that's OK. I think I have to reboot for this to take an effect?

KMS is Kernel Mode Setting. Many modern video drivers do modesets in the kernel instead of in user space. Nouveau does a kernel modeset on boot, and then uses that mode to display a framebuffer console on your VT. The reason you can't unload nouveau is because it's now used to provide your text console. By disabling kernel modesetting, your text console will be displayed in VGA text mode, instead of a framebuffer console.

On Debian, edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst, and look for the section that starts with "### BEGIN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST". Go down to the line that starts with "# defoptions=" and add the option "nouveau.modeset=0" to the end of that line. Then run update-grub and reboot.

You can also add the option at boot time by selecting your kernel in the bootloader and pressing 'e' to edit the boot options.

Yes, you can add that to blacklist.conf, and yes you'll have to reboot for that to take effect; however, if nouveau is in your initrd and you don't disable KMS, you'll still end up stuck with the same problem.

Ant: Try to use the VESA driver, maybe you will able to remove Nouveau modules.
But I think it does not help, I've never used the Nouveau driver, I do not have installed any package Nouveau, I don't use DKMS.

Thanks for the informative post. It makes sense. Now, I know why my text console is all tiny! I was trying to fix that but without luck, but it appears to be related to this Nouveau! I prefer that old fashion VGA (80x25!) since my eye sights are bad.

I don't have a /boot/grub/menu.lst, but didn't Grub2 change this? I don't use the original Grub anymore. I don't know where your suggestion goes.

As for blacklist.conf, I will undo the change since you say I will still have problems. I assume only Grub's boot with nouveau.modeset=0 would be enough to fix this problem? Or is there something more?

[ 937.582729] nvidia 0000:02:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
root@Sid:~# dmesg | grep drm
root@Sid:~# dmesg | grep nouveau
I just want to get rid of/disable it so I can use NVIDIA and X.

I don't have a /boot/grub/menu.lst, but didn't Grub2 change this? I don't use the original Grub anymore. I don't know where your suggestion goes.

As for blacklist.conf, I will undo the change since you say I will still have problems. I assume only Grub's boot with nouveau.modeset=0 would be enough to fix this problem? Or is there something more?
Yes, sorry, GRUB 2 is different.

Edit /etc/default/grub and add the option to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. For example, if that line currently reads 'GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet"', change it to 'GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet nouveau.modeset=0"'.

You'll still need to run update-grub (or is it update-grub2 now?) after editing the file.

I would keep the line in blacklist.conf, it won't hurt anything.
