Default Re: Segmentation Fault with Graphics Drivers

So you're saying that when using the -x switch, the driver extracted successfully? If you cd into the newly created driver directory, and run "./nvidia-installer -s" what happens?

Also, to confirm, you're installing the driver on a local filesystem, not some kind of remote fileshare?

Thanks,
Lonni

When I run "./nvidia-installer -s" the words "segmentation fault" are printed to the screen.

The driver is on a local hard disk.

I'm starting to suspect that you have some kind of hardware problem. Are you able to compile any other software successfully? Have you verified your RAM?

Can you compile a kernel successfully?
Have you verified your RAM?

The only code I compile is stuff I've written myself. It's all pretty small, the largest being about 150 lines. I have compiled around 2,000 lines of code in Windows though.

I don't know how to verify my RAM.

Try memtest86:
http://memtest86.com

However, I'd also be curious whether you can successfully compile a kernel without seeing more problems.

Thanks,
Lonni

Memtest seemed to go okay. I had two passes and zero errors. I'm pretty new to Linux and I'm not CS, so kernel compilation sounds like a lot of headache.

I've rarely seen a system complete two full passes in less than 2 hours unless it had less than 512MB of RAM, and a very fast CPU.

How much RAM is in your system, and what kind of CPU do you have?

2x 512mb and an 2.2GHz Athlon 3500.

I don't even have specs like that and memtest86 completes in 20 minutes on 1G/2.0GHz AMD64.

I think you're mistaken Lonni. Try a more recent version of memtest86.
