nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

I don't want to mess-up my system. So I think...especially nvidia-drivers are best put into a module. Regarding to kernel: Which one to choose? I found a thread here and a sub-thread here . They talk about self-building porteus-kernels. There are many many versions to download. All of them with a di...

nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

Since I got the kdeinit-error with the newest driver, I tried compiling the 340-driver this time. The installer was not be able to compile the kernel-modules and aborted installation. Strange thing this happens to me with the 340-driver, while the newest driver was compiled well, before. Full log: n...

nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

I tried compiling the 384.69-driver one more time. This time I erased the home-folder from the module. I got no errors during compilation. When booting the new driver-module however, I'm getting the X-Server-error again: Could not start kdeinit5. Check your installation. I'm glad kde-config didn't g...

nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

I'm sorry being so annoying. However, nobody did upload a module with the newest nvidia-driver for porteus 3.2.2 up to now. So...helping me would make this module available for everyone. I didn't notice that Blaze's nvidia.sh (which I modified for my purpose) doesn't clean-up the module-content prop...

nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

I compiled the newest nvidia-driver 384.69 for porteus 3.2.2 (64 bit) in always-fresh-mode. Unfortunately the new package leads to an error-message after boot-up: Could not start kdeinit5. Check your installation. The error comes up in a white message-box in graphical mode. KDE doesn't load, afterwa...

nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

Thank you for the link. The 304-driver is not working with my 560 ti. I tried both drivers: Yours and the one from the porteus-server . In both cases I get a black screen on kde-start. Back on porteus 3.0, the old 340-drivers are working like a charm with the new card :D BTW: The file-hosting-site i...

nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

Just a little update: I finally got a gtx 560 ti and replaced my gt 740 with it. I now have trouble running wine and playonlinux because of the 32-bit libraries. I first tried 0050-multilib_current-x86_68.xzm which were recommended in some thread, here. Afterwards, I just tried the old compat32-libs...

nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

Sorry for late reply. I was very busy the last days. I tried porteus 3.2.2...and...wow :shock: ...it really is better than 3.0. All the little annoying bugs are fixed (vanishing desktop, sound-card-bug, etc) and up to now EVERYTHING is just working out of the box. Even my usb-sound-interface doesn't...

nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

@beny this is exactly what I did. Even the question for 32-Bit driver appeared on the screen (I answered "yes", of course). So...thank you for the help. At least I now know that opengl "should" work out of the box. I was afraid some libs were missing on my system. Didn't you need to install mesa in ...

nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

Nothing?

:o

Anybody?

Tried glu-compat32-9.0.0-x86_64-1compat32.tgz from pkgs.org, as recommended in some forums-post, here. No change of problem. I checked the symlinks in /usr/lib64/, as recommended in some other thread. All important symlinks in /usr/lib64 seem to be in place.

nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

:oops: just noticed that the script I used propably was from another tutorial. I just don't know anymore which one. In addition, I also changed some lines. Here is the nvidia.sh I did use in fact: #!/bin/bash # Build and clean nVidia xzm driver module for Porteus by Blaze for arch x86 or x86_64: dir...

nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

I finally got it! :crazy: It turns out that no crippled-sources are needed to compile the nvidia-drivers on porteus 3.0. I used cheatcodes from /boot/syslinux/porteus.cfg to boot-up porteus in always-fresh- and textmode. Then I ran the nvidia-installer NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-384.69.run and finally use...

nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

No luck with new kernel and driver. The graphics card doesn't even get mentioned in the system-logs anymore. It's missing in dmesg and lspci. No messages from X.Org anymore...not even something about the nouveau-driver. In addition, I get trouble with the number of modules getting loaded at system-s...

nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

No, I don't have crippled sources for porteus 3.0 :( On the porteus-file-server crippled sources are placed in the kernel -folder on porteus 3.2 and later. Earlier versions don't have this folder. BTW, do you know the cheatcode for booting into fresh-porteus in text-mode? I'm booting porteus with gr...

nvidia-drivers not working with geforce gt 740

Thank you for the awesome links! Before I try compiling by myself, I want to mention another idea I got meanwhile: I downloaded the newest driver from the nvidia-homepage (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-384.69.run). It's an executable file. I also found a tutorial for making a xzm-file here . Problems: 1) Is i...
