Nvidia Drivers won't install on Liquorix 3.7.0-10.dmz.2

Postby cplguy on Wed Mar 20, 2013 3:01 pm

I have successfully installed the 3.7.0-10.dmz.2-liquorix-amd64 kernel, and it starts, but Xserver does not function. after doing a sudo apt reinstall nvidia-kernel-dkms, it integrates the modules fine for the stock 3.2.0-4-amd64 kernel, but not the liquorix kernel. How can I get the nvidia drivers to install? I have included the contents of the /var/lib/dkms/nvidia/304.48/build/make.log file below:

dkms doesn't currently support 3.6 - 3.8 kernels, so your drivers aren't going to install. Apart from that, I doubt you'll get much help with issues relating to the liquorix kernel here anyway.

Liquorix does not support dkms. You either re-install Nvidia through synaptic, or the way I would suggest (and preferred) is to install with SMXI. SMXI installs drivers, does DU's and will update your Liquorix kernels...

http://smxi.org/

To install the scripts

http://smxi.org/site/install.htm

To run the scripts you have to drop out of Xserver (Ctrl+alt+F1)
Login as root

Run
Code: Select all
smxi

Follow instructions.

After drivers are installed, if you ever need to re-install =

Drop out of Xserver (Ctrl+alt+F1)
Login as root

Run
Code: Select all
sgfxi


Smxi saves the install files, so its an easy re-install

A big plus is the very latest stable drivers. I am at Nvidia 313.26

Been using SMXI , Liquorix, with Nvidia for years with no issues. (First time may be a bit intensive, but its really easy)... :wink:
