Question nVidia GeForce 6150 LE, Ubuntu, and X.org crash


Okay, so up till about two or three weeks ago my linux partition (Ubuntu + Beryl, etc.) was running perfectly. Then for some odd reason this happened.

It all started out with my screen resolution shrinking again. My monitor's "best" resolution is 1280x1024, and under Edgy that isn't a default choice, so I'd edited /etc/X11/xorg.conf so that anything that had a list of screen resolutions had "1280x1024" too. Then I upgraded to Feisty and all the resolutions were automatically there. I was like sweet! (and dang, 'cause I had to do it the hard way first ) Then two or three weeks ago the resolution was back at 1024x768, and I was confused. I checked the Screen Resolution thing in System | Preferences | Screen Resolution. It didn't have a 1280x1024 choice. I check /etc/X11/xorg.conf and all my additions are still there. So I reinstall the nvidia driver. I restart X and I can't see my mouse: It's there, 'cause stuff is still getting highlited when the thing that should be my cursor moves over it. So I (with difficulty ) uninstall and install the driver again (I think I used Synaptic both times.) I restart the computer and WHAM. I get a tty screen which flashes twice and goes to a blue error screen that says that X couldn't load and would I like to see the error output? I hit enter and it shows me a bunch of stuff that basically says that X couldn't load because the nVidia kernel module has a different version number than the one that X has. I do
Code:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
I look up the type of my graphics card (nVidia GeForce 6150 LE) and the type of my monitor (which it says on the front of my monitor ) and put that in. Then I do
Code:
sudo nano -Bw /etc/X11/xorg.conf
and replace nvidia with nv so it will let me see my GUI. Then I try every way to reinstall my nVidia driver I can find. I even use a downloaded version and compile the kernel module ('cause it had to, don't ask me). That was the only time anything changed. Every time I restart X after reinstalling the driver, it works, but I can't see my cursor. When I restart the computer I get the tty and the error thing. After I used the downloaded installer I got the same stuff, except the error message changed: the version module that the kernel module had was different.

So yeah. One of the things I love most about Ubuntu/Linux is Beryl, so I really need the driver. Can't anybody help? I asked this on ubuntuforums.org and didn't get a reply. Please help and thanks again, I'm such a

Did you initiate the command "nvidia-xconfig" after installing the driver?

Beryl is experimental, so expect it to crash X Window System even with reliable 3D modules (drivers). I suggest using something else that is not eye candy. You can use Beryl, but only for testing at this time.

When you install a nVidia module, make sure you have the kernel source code that matches your kernel version that you are using. Always compile th nVidia module and ignore any pre-compiled nVidia modules. I suggest posting /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

The mouse cursor may need to be set to software instead of hardware, but it may be a bug in Beryl. When I use OpenGL as the video output device with mplayer, the cursor does not show on top of the video. I do not mind this problem but it can be fixed by editing the code to draw the cursor with OpenGL when the cursor is over the video window.

Upgrading a distribution is like upgrading Windows. It is best to backup and then do the upgrade. I suggest do not do the upgrade but upgrade the libraries and software that are vulnerable for an attack. With all upgrades backup so you can resort to the previous that worked better.

IMHO, Gentoo developers makes it easy to install nVidia and ATI modules (drivers) as well as other programs. The Portage, Gentoo package database, has Beryl. The Gentoo developers have designate it as experimental from the ~x86 keyword option. Again use Beryl at your own risk.

I realize this, however, Beryl is not what crashed X, the nVidia kernel module and the X module conspired together (or something like that )

Huh? please explain.

How would I do that? Beryl is not the problem here. It was not running when I couldn't see my mouse.

It's not the upgrade's fault either. PEOPLE! My problem is that the kernel module for nVidia doesn't match the one that X has. This is not about upgrades or Beryl. Those are not my problem. Feisty was running fine for about a month before this, and Beryl was not running when my problems occurred. I don't use Gentoo, though. I use Ubuntu.

Yes I think so. Will try again doing this.

Make sure /usr/src/linux-`uname -r` exist. If it does not, install it through your package manager.

For files /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log, just use cat and highlight the text. Then post the text.

The nVidia installer overwrites X Window System libraries (mostly GL core libraries), so the upgrade to Feisty may have over written these files. Though since Beryl is experimental, it could corrupt the libraries to make X Window System to not work. I have experience ReiserFS corrupting files. If you are using ReiserFS, backup your data and use either EXT3 or XFS.

With out the two files, I can only provide suggestions that may never come close to an answer. If the utility nvidia-xconfig gave you a working setup, then you need to look at the old setup to find out what you did wrong.

Also, I do not believe "/usr/src/linux-' uname -r'"exists. Please explain what I would/should be looking for in Synaptic (the package manager) to get this.

--EDIT--
I tried installing the driver again and using nvidia-xconfig. Nothing noticably different happened.

Here's what I suggest. Starting over with your xorg.conf. Do so by executing the following commands as root.

mkdir /etc/X11/backup
cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/backup
rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
nvidia-xconfig

Then reboot. If that doesn't work then restore what you have done above by doing the following.

rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
cp /etc/X11/backup/xorg.conf /etc/X11/

Hope that helps.
