Thread: nVidia-driver problem
Enjoy an ad free experience by logging in. Not a member yet? Register.
AMD 64 Athlon 3000
2 gb RAM
nVidia GForce 5200 DDR 256MB.
I've dl the the proper driver from www.nvidia.com. When I follow the steps from nVidia it says type sh ./NVI -bla bla
It seems to install proberly, and asking to update xorg.conf, so the driver will run with KDE, the next boot. Everything seems to work fine.
Now for the problem:
The next time i start the Linux computer X is displaying some kind of error msg, and will not run. I have to kill gdm, and run the sh ./NV* again. I do not get any error msg, and when the compiling and installing is complete, I can type gdm. The the nVidia logo flashes and I can log on as normal. Now everything seems to be okey. BUT. The next time I start the computer, I have do to it all over.
I'm willing to belive that it does not save the xorg.conf-file and the kernel is run in the RAM, which means its gone when I hit the powerbutton.
You could try saving the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file once you have got Nvidia working as perhaps/etc/X11/xorg.conf.working and the copy the contents into the broken one that you boot intofree/libre/open software for the people by the people

I'll try that, and get back!
Nope. That didn't help. I still have do do all of the above....
Problem solved - YES!!! :-)
After searching the seb for some time, I found this on the Ubuntu-server. This simple!
Have a nice Christmas holiday!
