nvidia card & Bea. Help please SOLVED

Post by drum » Fri Dec 22, 2006 9:42 pm

Hi,
How do I get Bea to recognise my Nvidia 5200 card at boot up?


BTW guys, Bea is terrific.
Thanks
:D

Thanks Arv3n
After I hit option 1 in the envy script my screen blacks out before I can read anything that follows.
I have to do ctl-alt-f1 to get to a login and then I do startx but it takes me to a new desktop with none of my settings on it.
I reboot back to my normal desktop again.
No sign of the nvidia splash screen
What am I doing wrong
Cheers :D

Go to this wiki page for Ubuntu "edgy", follow the Nvidia driver howto. I did and it worked for me.

What? If I think I understood you correctly, then you are saying you did it in the terminal w/ the xserver running, you are supposed to close it, then run sudo envy.

Basically, this is what I did:

Pressed CTRL + ALT + F1, logged in, ran sudo init 3, ran sudo envy, then typed reboot.

But, yeah, what the other guy said would work, too.

Looks like there are 2 ways to do it, I used to use the "init 3" method when I last ran an Nvidia under SuSE.

Thanks to all. At age 70 I've been using Linux for a couple of years and it's the best thing since sliced bread.
I love learning things like this:-

[/quote]Pressed CTRL + ALT + F1, logged in, ran sudo init 3, ran sudo envy, then typed reboot.

It worked and I get the nvidia splash on boot.
What differences should I see on my system now?

Thanks, you guys are great 8)
