nvidia geforce fx 5200 graphics card not functioning right at all
 
ok so ive had ubuntu for about a year now switching back and forth between that and xp i recently put in a 5200 card cuz i had it lying around and it was better than my integrated card. anyway since then ubuntu refuses to go back to my integrated card and my nvidia card wont cooperate with compiz which is my whole reason for being here i either hope for a way to get nvidia and compiz to work together or get linux to use and only use my i810 integrated graphics chip.

um how does that help me if ur having the same problem come out and say it cuz ur post makes no sense otherwise.

comprookie2000 03-29-2008 05:11 PM

Because I am sure you will need to load some modules;
Code:

Section "Module"
        Disable                "dbe"
        Disable                "dri"
        Disable                "glx"
        Disable                "vbe"
EndSection

mine works fine ...
did you read this;
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Bi...erHowto/Nvidia

polarisdrivr 03-29-2008 05:16 PM

ive tried loading some but it does nothing

and that site doesnt say much other than install the driver which i have and still doesnt help...

You need to load all modules except 'dri'.

I take it you installed the latest version released of the NVIDIA drivers, and it compiled fine, etc.

If not.

http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...69.12-pkg1.run

But i suspect your problems are due to not loading 'glx'.

For reference, my xorg.conf. Im running a newer card and bigger screen, but it might help you.

Also try looking at /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see if any error messages are being displayed.
