running ubuntu 8.10
Processor: AMD Atholn 64 x2 Dual Core Processor 5600+ 2.8 GHz
Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
1. Paste output of /sbin/lspci
I can't find it... and I guess thats all that applied to me but if you request any logs I'll post them.
So I just installed ubuntu for the 1st time. I was rebooting after installing the 180 NVIDIA driver and i saw
(EE)NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device
(EE)NVIDIA(0): Please see the COMMON PROBLEMS
section in the README for
(EE)NVIDIA(0): additional information
(EE)NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device!
(EE) Screen(S) found, but none have a usable configuration
Someone suggested that I:
"I would suggest you start in recovery mode, and at the menu select xfix, once it is finished select resume and continue on to your desktop. This should start you up with the default video driver. Open System-->Administration-->Synaptic Package Manager and remove all mention of nvidia. Next make sure you are fully upgraded before installing the restricted drivers."
That yielded the same result.
Someone Else Suggested that I:
"Try this, remove all mention from Synaptic again, go to terminal and type "sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-180", then do a "sudo apt-get update". After that type "sudo nvidia-xconfig". Do not include the quotation marks. Reboot after that. If that doesn't work, then we would have to wait for the real experts to take over."
Yieled the same result
Then I did that again but I ran recovery
Same result but a new error it was before the (EE)NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize ... PCl:0:13:0
It said (EE) Failed to load module "type 1"(module does not exist,0)
Now I'm getting that and in the driver manager all of those proprietary drivers are gone =O.
What should I do?
Edit: Someone Reccomended:
"I just had this problem few ours ago just choose go back to default configuration then open up ubuntu then open a terminal and type
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
after that open System >> Adminstration >> Hardware drivers and pick 177 or 173 i think the problem that 6xxx series card aren't supported anymore by nVidia updates or at least that what i think not sure of it (they just show 8 series and higer on their website)."
But it now shows that i have no proprietary drivers.
