Default Re: X Not starting with Device Driver "nvidia"

I did what you said. ALT+CTRL+F1 then telinit 3. Then I did nvidia-installer --uninstall but it said bash: nvidia-installer not found
So I tried a sh NVIDIA-Linux-(drivernubmer).run --uninstall and the installer came up and said there was no driver installed. Is that what I wanted? I loaded the installer and said no to the OpenGL for 32bit libraries but that didn't work. When I run sax2 -r -0=nvidia I get the same error I have always gotten with this. That black screen. But it won't let me ALT+CTRL+F1 back to the command line. So I have to reboot and go into SafeMode. In a few minutes I will get the bug report on this. Gotta get my X back to defaults first.

Default Re: X Not starting with Device Driver "nvidia"

Here is my nvidia-bug-report.log. I haven't looked at it but I noticed something when I was installing through YOU. This is an error like this....


nvidia-gfx-kmp-default-1.0.8762_2.6.16.21_0.8-1.x86_64[20061011-144040] cannot be installed due to missing dependencies
There are no installable providers of kernel(mm) == 277a6b320d9419dc for nvidia-gfx-kmp-default-1.0.8774_2.6.16.13-_0.8-1.x86_64[20061011-144040]
Conflict Resolution:
( ) do not install nvidia-gfx-kmp-default
( ) Ignore this requirement just here

This is not the actual error cause I installed anway and now cannot get the error. But it is nearly identical to the one I got.

Is this related?

Default Re: X Not starting with Device Driver "nvidia"

Those errors are coming from SuSE's tools, not the nvidia driver. You should contact SuSE about them.

However, your latest bug report does capture a failure. I have a few questions:
0) Have you verified that you're using the latest BIOS?
1) Why are you booting with the acpi=off kernel parameter?
2) If you set NvAGP to 0 in xorg.conf, does that have any impact on the problem?
3) Does this problem persist with the 1.0-9625 driver as well?

Thanks,
Lonni

I haven't tried the NVAGP thing yet. I will have to try that tomorrow.
I just bought the motherboard. It's got a PCI Express port and an AGP port (part of the issue?)
ACPI is off because I haven't changed anything and that's how it set. Should I turn it on?
I thought the 8774 driver was the newest for x86_64 systems. If it is not, can you link me? I have looked through the driver selection and I only say 8774. Thanks.

Its generally not a good idea to disable ACPI unless it fixes a problem.

It looks like you should update your openSUSE(YOU).

BTW, xorg-x11-server-6.9.0-50.24 is the most recent X11 for openSUSE 10.1. There was update for it recently(a week or two ago) so check that 2. ...

Why is nvidia providing BETA drivers rather than the released driver?

You need to look in your message log for ACPI. Whatever mobo that is may have bad ACPI tables that the kernel cannot use ... hence the default is acpi=off.
Typing
dmesg
might(should) give you the info...
And you are correct, 8774 is the latest driver that is officially RELEASED. I don't know WTH nVidia is doing or why...

fhj52,
I'm not sure that I understand your question. Beta drivers are released prior to the final stable driver.

Thanks,

...
beta == test
beta .NE. release
pre-release == the release version with only (ONLY!) minor cosmetic/documentation changes.
RC == release code & often same as pre-release

beta == unstable and (very) often requiring major changes

If nvidia is claiming that 9625 is RC, then please, PLEASE, call it such.

In any event, I will add,
nvidia-installer -a --update
should NEVER install a non-official release.
It did and it broke the box.

I don't believe anyone stated that 1.0-9625 was a release candidate. Its a beta driver, as stated on the website.

Thanks,

Default Re: X Not starting with Device Driver "nvidia"

I frankly don't know anything about ACPI. If there is a setting in my BIOS I will find it and detail it here. I will do the dmesg and post that here as well. Where can I find the updates for x11? If that is something I can get through YOU I would like that but for somereason I can't seem to get online updates unless I add my own repositories. I tried setting up online update configuration but it took so long and I had to go to work. I left it running so when I get home I'll look at that. I went to opensuse and added some repositories but none of them have the new kernel on it. So we'll see about that. Is the ACPI settings in my xorg.conf file? Thanks guys.
