Re: Installing Nvidia Drivers on Waldorf

@Erinsfan thank you - I might take you up on that offer when Waldorf goes stable and the desktop has to cross the great divide with its ancient hardware.

@sector11 thank you too - that's just the sort of getting started info I was looking for.

Re: Installing Nvidia Drivers on Waldorf

You must re-install the nvidia kernel module for the new kernel.
The easiest way is probably to set aside the xorg.conf file, boot into the new kernel and go through that install procedure again:
(1) boot into the old kernel
(2) in a terminal window

sudo mv -v /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.nvidia

(3) boot into the new kernel (using the nouveau driver)
(4) go through the nvidia install procedure again
(5) reboot into the new kernel
All should be well now.

Re: Installing Nvidia Drivers on Waldorf

Those were replaced by version 3.2.0-4 by now.
Run

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Then try the m-a command again.

Re: Installing Nvidia Drivers on Waldorf

this worked for me in 64 bit, but I added one step:  I got rid of the xserver-xorg-video-nouveau driver, because I got a message about it conflicting with nvidia.  And I had to reboot; I couldn't restart SLiM.

Nouveau has been absolute crap with my EVGA GeForce GT 630.  Every few seconds, my screen flickers in X.  And in tty consoles, I get this:

[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 48
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 48
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 49
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 49
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 54
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 48
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 48
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 49
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 49
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 54
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: No native mode, forcing panel scaling
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 48
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 48
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 49
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 49
[uptime] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown i2c port 54

I really need to learn something about bug reporting, cos this happened in madbox 12.04 as well.  I'm going to pop in some other live distros and see where else I find the issue.  It did not pop up in Stella 6.3, but IIRC, that uses nv, not nouveau.

Re: Installing Nvidia Drivers on Waldorf

To the original poster;  thanks, worked fine here as well (I did everything via ssh, as the machine was blank). And i got my vdpau/mplayer working as well.

Re: Installing Nvidia Drivers on Waldorf

I am glad this post and  follow ups have helped people.
I have always used Nvidia with Linux because I believe they have the best drivers.

Re: Installing Nvidia Drivers on Waldorf

Thank you bartos! I finally found one that didn't crash my system  I already had Xorg.conf set up from previous try's so I was able to follow these steps exactly.  The debian version was playing hell with chrome-beta.  Now life is good again.  kiss
