Nvidia?

Postby Snitch on Wed Dec 22, 2010 10:07 am

Hi, my GeForce 7600 didn't install (I don't see NVidia in Settings). How can I fix it, please?

Thanks. What's the difference between 17xx legacy driver and 195xx driver?

Snitch,
I solved this way:
open synaptic and make sure that libgl1-mesa-dri is not installed
open the terminal and in sequence enter:
su -> will ask for your password
apt-get install module-assistant
apt-get install nvidia-kernel-common
apt-get install nvidia-glx
apt-get install nvdia-kernel-source
apt-get install nvidia-xconfig

then need to activate the driver from the terminal by typing:

m-a prepare
m-a a-i nvidia
modprobe nvidia
nvidia-xconfig

then shut-down and reboot the PC and verify if the driver is OK typing from the terminal the command glxinfo | grep render

if everyrhing went OK U should have an output like the above
ciao

Command line could'n find nvidia-kernel-source, so I installed it through the Synaptic.
But modprobe nvidia isn't working - "FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/nvidia/nvidia.ko): No such device" :(
