[SOLVED with solution...] !!!! Nvidia GP107 a 10 series card driver problem

Post by Arctic-Prospector » Wed Oct 31, 2018 7:07 pm

Code: Select all

Credit goes to  ajgringo619, and thru him, catweazel.

SAimplicity is the essence of elegant, Plus the fact
I'm lazy.
now I have a decent mint 19 machine.

disk partitioning - I can help you with.

for linux mint 19 install onto

a ASUS Prime X399-A motherboard with a threadripper 2290WX cpu
and two NVIDIA GP107 [GeForce GTX 1050] with 2 gigs video ram
used only one video card to install with.

installed the latest bios for the motherboard.
set motherboard bios to factory defaults
          2 exceptions set time and date
                       set num lock off at boot
==============================================================

            Linux video cludge between ==== lines

after motherboard bios boot
 "esc" once
linux boot menu options appears
"e" (for edit mode)

add nomodeset after quiet splash - make sure
you do not overwrite anything, and needs a space
before and after nomodeset

F10 to save changes and continue the boot.
==============================================================
Install Mint 19
at the requested reboot, 
repeat the Linux video cludge as above

then as per other posts in here to add nomodeset into grub file.
arctic@Ripper64:~$ sudo nano /etc/default/grub
[sudo] password for arctic: 
arctic@Ripper64:~$ sudo update-grub  <<<<----does not work here...

/usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig: 10: /etc/default/grub: nomodeset: not found
arctic@Ripper64:~$

Now I deal with my needed video drivers.
my 2 video cards are as below
arctic@Ripper64:~$ inxi  -SMCGx

Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA GP107 [GeForce GTX 1050]     bus-ID: 41:00.0
Display Server: x11 (X.Org 1.19.6 )   drivers: fbdev,nouveau (unloaded: modesetting,vesa)
Resolution: 800x600@75.00hz   OpenGL: renderer: llvmpipe (LLVM 6.0, 128 bits)
version: 3.3 Mesa 18.0.0-rc5 Direct Render: Yes

Use these commands to remove any Nvidia driver files:

sudo apt purge *nvidia* && sudo apt autoremove
reboot or Logout/ Login. 
Use this command and post the output:

inxi -SMCGx

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa  &&  sudo apt-get update  <-from add'l repositories

apt search nvidia | grep 410    <-- only needed to see additional sources

sudo apt install nvidia-driver-410 nvidia-prime nvidia-dkms-410 nvidia-settings

have not used
sudo apt-get install *nvidia*



my working fstab

again does not work

I have jre-8u191-linux-x64.tar.gz a 64 bit java
install - BUT - how to use it?
this is needed for Nvidia site to select right driver for my GP 107 card.

It is a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 aka PH-GTA1050 series card
with 2 gigs of video memory. (NVIDIA GP107 [GeForce GTX 1050])

or is there another way to solve this?
Synaptic, nor Driver manager does not appear to help.


I'm a linux newby.
thank you for your help in advance guys and gals.

What happens with Driver Manager? Which version(s) have you tried to install with it? According to Nvidia's site, your card is supported on all the available versions.

Just like me when my fantasy team wins! :lol:
Now, regarding the Java. You should already have this installed: openjdk-11-jre. The only reason the Nvidia site wants to install Java is for the automatic driver detection, which you shouldn't need. I'm running the 410.73 driver with my GeForce GTX 960, but I installed it through the Driver Manager.

These are the Nvidia packages I have installed; unless you need them, you can ignore the .i386 packages:

I;m bashing my head against a brick wall
trying to figure out these items

how do I get the driver for the video card - ie
Graphics: Card: NVIDIA GP107 [GeForce GTX 1050]
bus-ID: 41:00.0

next how does one install it?

sure am tired of 800 x 600
when it can do 1920 x 1200
sigh

OK, try this:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install nvidia-driver-410 nvidia-prime nvidia-dkms-410 nvidia-settings
The rest should come along with it.
