nvidia driver woes after dist-upgrade (GeForce F5200, Debian Unstable)
 
after my last dist-upgrade, X would no longer start. Last time this happened, it was a simple matter of reinstalling the nvidia drivers.

I am using the nvidia driver package from nvidia (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1.run) and not doing things the apt-get/module-assistant way. This time the drivers would not even install. I tried installing the older version (9746) also to no avail.

I am able to get going using the native nv driver, but I want to get back to using the nvidia driver ASAP.

The past few times I've installed the nvidia drivers, I've done so successfully by runnning:
Quote:

NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1.run --x-module-path=`X -showDefaultModulePath 2>&1 | cut -d, -f1` --x-library-path=`X -showDefaultLibPath 2>&1`
This time I tried this way and just ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1.run

Here is /var/log/nvidia-installer.log:

-> License accepted.
-> There appears to already be a driver installed on your system (version: 1.0-

  driver will be uninstalled.  Are you sure you want to continue? ('no' will a
  bort installation) (Answer: Yes)
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you li
  ke the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel f
  rom the NVIDIA ftp site (ftp://download.nvidia.com)? (Answer: No)
-> No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means
  that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.

Now for some specific questions on excerpts of this:

First:
Quote:

WARNING: Unable to restore symbolic link /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 -> libGL.so.1.2
(File exists).
when the install fails, both the file and the symbolic link disappear. They exist prior to the driver install attempt as part of the libgl1-mesa-glx package. Without this, several programs will not run and I end up having to reinstall that package.

Also, There are several message similar to this one:
Quote:

ERROR: Unable to create
'/usr/lib/dosemu/drive_z/tmp/selfgz5620/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9746-pkg1/u
sr/lib/libGL.la' for copying (No such file or directory)
/usr/lib/dosemu/drive_z/tmp is a symlink to /tmp. I verified that /tmp is writeable.

Any ideas?

djcs 06-02-2007 07:39 AM

Try something simple like moving the NVIDIA installer file into a more simple directory, like /tmp/

Im not sure but maybe the _ in /usr/lib/dosemu/drive_z/ is causing a problem.

And im really only guessing.....
But heck, anything is worth a try if it gets it working. :D

DJ

Edit:
This also tells me that the problem may be cause your trying to run the installer from a cd???

Use Debian apt way
 
I have to say something as an NVIDIA XFX 7300 GT Debian Sid user.
I compiled myself a kernel for my specific purpose.that is another case.
btwn I uses Debian Sid with lenny+experimental apt-pinned(GIYF)
As for u,
get urself the Debian way of doing things dude.I hope u r running Debian Sid/Lenny.
try the guide below.do remember that ur compiling fails if u dont have a similar gcc version as of the kernel which u uses.that is the case where i used custom kernel.
But U may not need a custom compiled kernel.
any ways follow the guide.make sure u have all repositories listed in ur /etc/apt/sources.list.
NvidiaGraphicsDrivers - Debian Wiki
Debian-nVidia HOWTO - Installation
Debian-Kernel-Compile-Howto (Kernel 2.6) | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials
^^ the first and second are almost same.but works!!Happy GFX with NVidia ;)

Im not sure but maybe the _ in /usr/lib/dosemu/drive_z/ is causing a problem.

And im really only guessing.....
But heck, anything is worth a try if it gets it working. :D

Edit:
This also tells me that the problem may be cause your trying to run the installer from a cd???

I have no idea why those /dev/hdc messages are there...I have an audio CD in /dev/hdc.

OH, I did run the installer from the /tmp directory and I recompiled the kernel just to ensure teh gcc versions matched.

Anyhow, I was able to fix it...kinda. I had the the nvidia-installer build/install the module and I manually installed the libraries and created symlinks.
