Problem install Nvidia driver

Post#1 by Slaxmax » 16 Apr 2014, 23:40

I downloaded porteus 3.0-x86_64 and Nvidia driver 304.119, but X does not start.
In same pc I have porteus rc2 i486 with Nvidia 304.117-i486 and works fine.

I try compile my own Nvidia driver 304.119-x86_64 but does not complete the construction of the module.
The 05-devel module is enabled and I put disable nouveau in /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-installer-disable-nouveau.conf
There seems to be some problem with the kernel. See the picture below and the log:
What is the problem?
In this case I tried in virtualbox, but the physical pc gives the same problem.

It could be one of two things.

1) Different kernel sources (problem with 05-devel.xzm) or perhaps it requires the FULL kernel sources and not s tripped down version.
2) Or it could be that nouveau is not being unloaded. You could boot into text mode and run 'modprobe -r nouveau' before running the Nvidia wizard to see if it installs and loads the nvidia.ko kernel module.

@beny
Same problem. In same PC I have porteus-3.0-rc2-i486 with Nvidia-309.117 working fine.

Does anyone have the 05-devel 3.0rc2-x86_64 module to download?

What was wrong with my compilation?
maybe you have older 05-devel.xzm? please compare it's md5sum with one from http://dl.porteus.org/

updated nVidia is now in /drivers folder on the server and will ask Hamza for doing the same for the desktop wizard.
thanks
