HOWTO: 9.04 nVidia Drivers

This is how I installed nVidia drivers on a fresh 9.04 install

(Step 1)
First grab the drivers from here
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_archive.html
put them in you /home/user folder

(Step 2)
Right Click, Terminal
Install these three applications to prepare for the driver installation

sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings binutils gcc

(Step 3)
press CTRL+ALT+F1 to take you into a non-X terminal thingy

(Step 4)
authenticate with your user account

sudo killall gdm
sudo killall openbox
sudo ./NVIDIA*

(Step 5)
Run through the installation wizard.

(Step 6)
Afterwards, reboot your GUI, enabling the drivers, by typing  (thx alt-SysRq-boom!)

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start

P.S. i <3 #!

edit: fixed reboot to gdm start

Re: HOWTO: 9.04 nVidia Drivers

hi, nice howto smile

Just out of curiosity. Have you tried using the Restricted Device Manager to install these drivers?

Re: HOWTO: 9.04 nVidia Drivers

I was about to ask the same thing. And if this is a minimal install, then you just need to install jockey-gtk.

Re: HOWTO: 9.04 nVidia Drivers

With the driver installed Restricted Device Manager on my laptop HP Pavilion dv 5 1040ER does not work. So laid hands beta driver
   
I would like to add, before installing the driver need to download
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
sudo apt-get install make
sudo apt-get install binutils
sudo apt-get install gcc
sudo apt-get install libc6-dev
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg

Re: HOWTO: 9.04 nVidia Drivers

i thought i was following this word for word, but i got a "command not found" when trying sudo ./NVIDIA*
and it's definately in there, i checked. /home/crunchbang/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.04-pkg1.run
feel free to point and laugh at my obvious mistake, but please do me the courtesy of telling me what it is too.  wink

Re: HOWTO: 9.04 nVidia Drivers

you also need to do:
chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.04-pkg1.run
before you try to run it.


I say never be complete, I say stop being perfect, I say lets evolve, let the chips fall where they may.

Re: HOWTO: 9.04 nVidia Drivers

Than you for a simple howto.
Don't forget add the line, as iggykoopa said, that makes it executable.

Re: HOWTO: 9.04 nVidia Drivers

First post, but been using crunchbang for a while now.

I'm running 9.04 32-bit and I'm unable to get it to compile.  I get an error stating that I need to specify the SYSOUT or SYSSRC.

Just let me know if you'd like me to post the whole installer log.

Re: HOWTO: 9.04 nVidia Drivers

Need to chmod +x the .bin, then it will work.

I was able to update my kernel and use this method to update & rebuild my legacy 96 series Nvidia module to get my X back.  Nice!  Thanks!

Re: HOWTO: 9.04 nVidia Drivers

For those who having lower 2d performance on 260.x driver, get the 270.x beta from here :

Latest 270.41.06 amd64 beta :
ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/270.41.06/
Index amd64 :
ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/

Latest 270.41.06 x86 beta :
ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/270.41.06/
Index x86 :
ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/

I don't experience anymore slowdown on 2d performances.

Re: HOWTO: 9.04 nVidia Drivers

@nanocipher - Please do not bump old threads; this was about 9.04. There are newer threads about installing the NVIDIA driver on Statler.
