Re: Installing NVIDIA official Linux Drivers

a how-to as your first post. that is always great smile
only thing i was wondering when reading this is 'where is the link to the NVIDIA driver?'
of course you can Google it, but would be more logical (to me) to include the link in the how-to, for ease-of-use purposes.

that said, why don't you head over to the Introductions subforum and get yourself a real welcome from the community? smile

Re: Installing NVIDIA official Linux Drivers

You trying different things makes it difficult to guess what went wrong.
If you could post the output of

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log

it would help.

Re: Installing NVIDIA official Linux Drivers

I re-installed CrunchBang. I'll be starting from scratch. Following the instructions on this thread, now I get:

Building kernel module:
(I see a progress bar go to 100%)

ERROR: Unable to build the NVIDIA kernel module.

ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. etc...

Re: Installing NVIDIA official Linux Drivers

I guess you dont have the linux headers installed:
Try this:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

Then restart the command that produced the error.

If you get the same error, post the output of the command:

sudo cat /var/log/nvidia-installer.log

in this forum.

Re: Installing NVIDIA official Linux Drivers

The full output is to long to post here. The first error I get is:
   test -e include/generated/autoconf.h -a -e include/config/auto.conf || (        \
       echo;                                \
       echo "  ERROR: Kernel configuration is invalid.";        \
       echo "         include/generated/autoconf.h or include/config/auto.conf are
   missing.";\
       echo "         Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it
   .";    \

Attempting to enter:
sudo make oldconfig
Yields:
make: *** No rule to make target 'oldconfig'. Stop
Same with make prepare.

Re: Installing NVIDIA official Linux Drivers

Thanks DerLateinProfi.

After black screens from other non-CLI solutions I tried this and everything popped up with all monitors working perfectly.
