Default Beginner's guide to installing driver's?

I am brand new to Linux and just installed Fedora Core 5 on an AMD Athlon 64 3400+ with an NVIDIA nForce 410 chipset. The FC5 install was painless, but as I've found in these forums, getting the NVIDIA driver to work seems to be no easy task. I have found several threads describing the same problem I am having, but the solutions are a bit greek to me -- not be very familiar with linux yet.

This is the latest driver I was able to get from nvidia.com...
NFORCE-Linux-x86_64-1.0-0310-pkg1.run

This is the log I get when trying to install...

Could someone point me to step-by-instructions for a linux newbie to resolve this issue and get my network working?

After reading the log, it looks like the kernel sources weren't found. On FC5, you can get a suitable subset of the kernel sources by installing the "kernel-devel" rpm. If you have yum set up, do "yum install kernel-devel".

Once that's done, try rerunning the nvidia install script.

Default Re: Beginner's guide to installing driver's?

I am brand new to Linux SuSE 10 and I have a similiar issue.
However, I was able to figure out how to install it based on the instructions:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-8756.html

Wheres SUSE users have to follow specific instructions. (I am using an AMD64 processor).

Originally I could not find the step to Install and Installable patches to proceed, but I did find them and completed.

It even looks like the Nvidia drivers are installed in my hardware information (XFX Pine VGA Controller) but NOT as the Graphics Card and Monitor (this is still VESA Framebuffer Graphics). I cannot change the VESA Framebuffer Graphics to Nvidia, the option is not available.

MY error log seems longer than everyone elses, but then again I am brand new (2nd day). I even had a very experienced user VNC in and assist. The problem is possibly Kernel related, but I have no clue.

The Nvidia error log says that I am running an X-server (the gnome GUI) but well, that, a catch22 because the installation instructions can only be carried out in YaST awhile I am on the thing!


My error log file is too large, I believe there is only one section of the log that you guys need. I will try to accomodate that.

Ignore this. Just complete the installation as it is described and check that your X server is using the nvidia driver, don't go back to YaST to set or change this.

But you can go to textmode and start YaST there!
YaST can run both in textmode and in graphic mode.

Boot the system in textmode (selecting the safe settings will do), login as root and start the installer. Running X will come later.

Default Re: Beginner's guide to installing driver's?

I've always found it much easier to install the drivers using the distro's packaging system then the generic installer from nvidia.

For example, under Kubuntu I just call:

$ apt-get install nvidia-glx

or use the graphical install tool (called Adept) to install the drivers.

The downside is there is usually some lag between new drivers being released and appearing packaged in the distro's repo, although when new ones do come out it is generally easier to upgrade and you can be notified rather than having to keep going to the nvidia site.

On Fedora I believe yum is the preferred way these days. I don't know what GUIs there are for it, but there probably are at least a couple.

Now remember, I'm new. I will figure out how to start YaST in text mode on my own. BUT, How do I check to see if the x-server is running the nvidia driver (I noticed it showed up in the startup echo, but I still dont have any Nvidia capabilities. I would think at least I could see something definitive. An Nvidia setting or something!

Really all I'm trying to do is to get my dual display going. AFter that I can do whatever, I'm going to learn and own (as in dominate with skill and experience) linux, but i need to have two displays, this is crazy. (I have used dual display for years, never got used to single display)

Just type yast or YaST.
But unless you want to install the SuSE-provided version of the driver (which is behind by a few versions, but of course easier to install and maintain uptodate) you don't need to use YaST for this.
Do it as written in the installation instructions:
- go to textmode
- run the installer
- use either sax2 or the nvidia-xconfig program to modify the X config file
- try to start X to see how it works out

But that is in the installation instructions, isn't it?
One sign is the white splash screen with nvidia logo appearing when you start the X server. When your monitor is slow to sync it may flash by a bit quickly.
You can also check if the opengl 3d accelleration is working by typing:

glxinfo | head

This shows output like:

name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.3

OK, this might be a dumb question, but isn't that dependent on being online? I get: Error: cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates My network card not working is my problem, so anything involving the internet is not an option at this point

Good point!

Look for the kernel-devel package on the installation CDs. Try something like the following command to find it:
Code:
mount /media/cdrom; find /media/cdrom -name 'kernel-devel*.rpm' -print; umount /media/cdrom; eject
(You may have to change /media/cdrom to something else more appropriate for your installation. E.g. on one of my FC4 machines, I have /media/cdrecorder instead of /media/cdrom. After you insert a CD, look in /media and see what's there.)

The above command mounts the CD in the drive, looks for a file named 'kernel-devel*.prm' and prints the path if found. If it prints nothing, it wasn't found. It then unmounts and ejects the disc. Assuming that the file wasn't found on the disc you tried, insert the next disc and try again.

Once you find the disc containing this RPM, you should reinsert it, mount the drive again and then do "rpm -Uvh <path-to-rpm>", where <path-to-rpm> is the previously determined path.

You should be able to find the kernel-devel RPM on your installation media, but if you can't, use another (network connected) machine to visit a Fedora mirror, fetch the package, transfer it to some suitable media, and then install it from that media onto the desired machine. Use the rpm command listed above.

Thanks a bunch. That did the trick. It's installed and shows as active in Network, but still no network activity. I'll work on that tomorrow

Show us the output from the following commands:
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig eth0
and
Code:
netstat -rn
You might also take a look at /var/log/messages to see if there's anything of interest there.

The full nvidia-nforce-installer.log was too long to post here. Contained lots of warnings and errors, but the best I can make out they were related to the audio driver, which I don't need to worry about at this point. this is what I could make of the network stuff...

This is what my modprobe.conf looks like based on the instructions in the release notes...
Quote:
alias eth0 nvnet
alias scsi_hostadapter sata_nv
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-hda-intel index=0
remove snd-hda-intel { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-hda-intel
alias eth0 nvnet
alias forcedeth off
One thing I can say for sure is that I am having a problem in the Network Configuration. If I set modprobe.conf with eth0 it only shows forcedeth as a device. If I change it to eth1 I get NVNET as a device, but trying to activate it results in nvnet eth1 does not seem to be present
