Default Re: Install fails with Debian 2.6.20-1-k7 + Linux-x86-1.0-9755/Linux-x86-100.14.03

Hi giraf,
sorry for the late answer but i wa s a bit overwhelmed these days. Can you post your log form the x server. As i said i didn't try to install this older version on my computer, but as far as i know there should be no such problem, i didn't change anything regarding the binary modules and they way they get installed. You can also check with

Code:
lsmod | grep nvidia
if the kernel module has been loaded. If not try running

Code:
modprobe nvidia
and look for the result - if nothing comes this has worked and you can try running x again if not please post your error here too.

Hi Giraf,
I accidentaly found information about your problem. It is actually some bug in th version reporting of xorg in the newer versions > 1.3 and the nvidia installer installs its filesto wrong locations.
The bug and its solution are described here:

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...02&postcount=2

I have updated the version available on my page to call the nvidia-installer with the correct options supplied. Hope this helps.

I had some trouble with this last week as well. And I found out NOT to apt-get anything nvidia* and only run the nvidia official driver. Then all worked like a charm. Even got compiz working in 1920x1200 as well. Very pleasing.

Using Debian Lenny.

Julian is there gonna be also a patch for the 96xxx drivers for kernel 21? On your site I can only see it for kernel 20.

Thanks!

AFAIK should the driver present for download on the nvpatch page install on 2.6.21 too. However I am about to post one version for 2.6.21 with the 9639 version (I think this is the last legacy version on NVidia's site). I think it will happen tomorrow. Will post here once it's done.

I posted the 9693 version of the Legacy driver for download would really appreciate some feedback whether it is working for you.

One tip concerning one of the last problems with Debian/Ubuntu testing distributions - upon installation an error comes that the libGL.so could not be copied from /usr/lib/dosemu/drive_z/tmp if you have the dosemu package installed. I think this has to do with the wya the temp dir is being located and I would suggest you run the installation with the --target ~/somedir/ to prevent it looking for the tmp dir in first place or try setting the TMPDIR env. variable (bash - export TMPDIR=/somedir/ or tcsh setenv TMPDIR /somepath/) hope this will spare you some time. I hope they will resolve the problem soon.

Hi Jul,

Thanks for the packages. Unfortunately it didn't work on my debian unstable (I also tried the --target xx).

I get these errors:

ERROR: Failure creating directory '': (No such file or directory)
-> The installer has encountered the following error during installation: 'Cann
ot install /libXvMCNVIDIA.a'. Continue anyway? ("no" will abort)? (Answer:
Yes)
ERROR: Failure creating directory '': (No such file or directory)
-> The installer has encountered the following error during installation: 'Cann
ot install /libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1.0.9639'. Continue anyway? ("no" will abort)?
(Answer: Yes)
executing: '/sbin/ldconfig'...
executing: '/sbin/depmod -aq'...

Thanks for your help!

If this is the only problem you can just first extract the driver without executing the installation script by running it with the following parameters

--noexec --keep --target /somedir/

then navigate to somedir/usr/X11R6/lib there you'll find both libXvMCNVIDIA.a and libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1.0.9639. Copy these files to your /usr/lib directory and create a symbolic link called libXvMCNVIDIA_dynamic.so.1 to libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1.0.9639 in the same directory. This should be all concerning this particular files. If this doesn't help or you stumble somewhere I'll gladly try to help more.

Those where the only errors yes. I tried copying the files and creating the symbolic links. However X still refuses to start, the output from the kdm.log:

-------------
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) No drivers available.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

-------------

Once again thanks for your help

well i have the same issues and i thing that they are Debian issues.

I got it installed with -e (the expert option) it does tell you that it does not copy files but my x started after all.

I dont think it is tmp dir issue as i tried ln -s plus setting TMP=/tmp and tmpdir=/tmp

please report if you have any suggestions

This is actually know problem and should have been solved. I don't have much clue about the problem left but can you please try running the driver setup once more and attach the complete nvidia-installer.log (normally in /var/log/ ) and the x-server error log too. You can have a look at the problem description here as well http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...02&postcount=2
