Titel: How do I get working nvidia drivers?  BeitragVerfasst am: 19.10.2006, 22:59 Uhr

After many, many delays I have finally taken delivery of my new computer but the nvidia card is giving me trouble on linux.
I've had a hell of a time getting 3d acceleration working on suse and am still unable to get xgl running.
So I've been trying it on kanotix but I can't get anywhere with this either.
Kanotix detected the card on boot but it's using the vesa driver. I've tried using the install-nvidia-debian.sh script but it doesn't seem to be working
This is the output
Code:
Unionfs found.

so how else do I get drivers installed for my card?
I have no experience at all of getting graphic cards working on linux so I don't know where to start.
The card in question is an nvidia GeForce 7600 GS and has been working well on a couple of live cds with xgl/aiglx/compiz (amazingly well, in fact).

try using 9626, maybe nvidia pulled the beta 9625. Or use the latest stable, 8xxx driver.

All you're seeing is that nvidia.com isn't willing to deliver that file to you.

run update-scripts-kanotix.sh, then reedit the nvidia installer, comment out the 87xx item and uncomment the latest 9626 driver, then run the script.

simple solution: go to nvidia.com. find and download the v9626 driver there (you'll have to search the forums b/c this is a beta version). follow nvidia's installation directions (one (1) command).

that's it. good luck.

I found the beta driver on nvidia.com but I can't download it. It says I need to read the licencse first and agree to it before I can download but when the licencse page comes up there is nothing to click on to say I agree.

Keep in mind that using the nvidia installer is the WORST way to install the nvidia driver on a Debian box. Why? Because it installs to non-standard directories. There are 2 ways that work. Using them both on the same system could result in undesirable behavior.

1st way is the Kanotix way. You need the -c switch for latest beta driver.
Code:
CTRL+ALT+F1
# update-scripts-kanotix.sh
# install-nvidia-debian.sh -c


If at first you don't succeed at getting the download from nvidia try try again. Winken

The other way is the Debian way where you actually make a deb w/ the nvidia driver. It also works just fine on Kanotix because well Kanotix is Debian.

Problem is I can't get the driver at all, it won't download from nvidia nor via the install-nvidia script. I tried changing the script to point to a different driver but it didn't work with any of them, neither beta nor stable.
I've been trying all day and I have no problems acessing download.nvidia.com so I don't know what's going on.

here's the link to v8776, released today (not a beta version):

http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_ia32_1.0-8776.html

[click] on the link, where it says "download". if you can't click and download, then you have some other kind of problem, maybe try a different browser.

even when my display was totally messed up, i was able to access the website and download a driver using lynx (a text-only browser - very good for emergencies)

Until now I relied on Kano's install-nvidia-debian.sh script. Worked fine until about 2-3 weeks ago. Then a d-u totally messed up my graphics system, had disappearing fonts in kde, kdm, and just about everywhere else. Tried many times to update my nvidia driver using kano's script, also tried h2's script, both failed to install the driver. why? i don't know. but when i finally used nvidia's installer, it worked and restored my system to working order.

bottom line: right now i got a working system again. if the nonstandard directories break something else further down the road, i'll deal with it then.

Yeah but clicking on back didn't do anything.
Anyway I tried downloading the file you suggested while I was in suse and it downloaded fine so I tried downloading the beta while in suse and that also downloaded fine so it looks like I'm having internet trouble again with kanotix.
Anyway, I chrooted into kanotix and tried running the install-nvidia script that way and it downloaded and installed ok and then I ran the install-compiz script the same way.
I wasn't expecting things to go well and when I rebooted into kanotix, X didn't start.
I tried running the install-nvidia script again and it said something about patching a file then suddenly an nvidia beta screen flashed up and the desktop loaded up. So far so good.
I then clicked on kmenu and it wobbled into view and sure enough, I now how a desktop full of warping, wobbling windows.
xgl and compiz are running perfectly and the performance is stunning.

Erm, well it was working, after rebooting I'm getting no wobbly windows and no window borders or anything. Anyone know what's wrong?

You forgot the -c switch. Current script installs 8776 without and 9626 with -c.

du-fixes-h2.sh now also has the option to install the beta nvidia drivers by using the -c switch.
