(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the nvidia kernel module


Hi there,

I just compiled a new kernel (2.6.9). I followed the instructions here...
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=127095

The kernel loads just fine but I can't load the NVIDA driver. After I type "startx", I get this....

(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the nvidia kernel module
(EE) NVIDIA(0): ***Aborting***
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration

Fatal server error:
No screens found
/var/log/xorg.0.log

If I try to install the Nvidia driver again I get this.........

-> There appears to already be a driver installed on your system (version: 1.0-
5336). As part of installing this driver (version: 1.0-5336), the existing
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.
-> Kernel source path: '/lib/modules/2.6.9/build'

ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'. This is most likely
because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source files.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your
kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel source
files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
'--kernel-source-path' commandline option.
-> Kernel module load error: insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko':
-1 Unknown symbol in module
ERROR: Installation has failed. Please see the file
'/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details. You may find suggestions
on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.

/sbin/lsmod shows that the nvidia driver isn't even loaded. If I change the xorg.conf file from nvidia to vesa, it works fine. Also, the nvidia driver works fine on the 2.4.26 kernel.

Can anyone help me out? Any help would be apperciated. I am relativily new to Linux so the simpler you can explain it the better. Thanks in advance.

It is a known problem that this Nvidia driver does not work with a vanilla 2.6.9 kernel. You could either patch the kernel or use a patched driver. As I prefer the latter here is the link to a patched NVidia driver which will work just fine:

Thx cccc828,

I used that patch but it did not seem to work. I still get the same error message. Was there anything additional I have to do to the xorg.conf file? I already replace "vesa" with 'nvidia" and added load "glx" and removed Load "dri" and Load "GLcore". While installing the patch, it suggested that I remove the rivafb module. Could that be causeing the problem. If so, how do I remove it? Thanks again

you might want to grab the latest and greatest from Nvidia. The latest is 1.0-6111.

mmmh could you maybe post the relevant parts of your xorg config file? Also maybe the Driver's Readme is usefull.

Getting closer....

Now when I type "lsmod" the nvidia driver is shown as loaded, whereas before it was not. However, I still get the same error message when I type "startx"

Here is a copy of my x.org.conf file (the module and graphics section)

I am not sure if the rivafb module is interferring. It does not say it is loaded when I type "lsmod"


# **********************************************************************
# Module section -- this section is used to specify
# which dynamically loadable modules to load.
# **********************************************************************
#
Section "Module"

# This loads the DBE extension module.

Load "dbe" # Double buffer extension

# This loads the miscellaneous extensions module, and disables
# initialisation of the XFree86-DGA extension within that module.
SubSection "extmod"
Option "omit xfree86-dga" # don't initialise the DGA extension
EndSubSection

# This loads the font modules
Load "type1"
Load "freetype"
Load "speedo"

# This loads the GLX module
Load "glx"

EndSection

# **********************************************************************
# Graphics device section
# **********************************************************************

# Any number of graphics device sections may be present

Section "Device"
Identifier "VESA Framebuffer"
Driver "nvidia"
#VideoRam 4096
# Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate
EndSection




I think I edited it properly. Any suggestions? Thanks again.

Please disregard the part where I said "lsmod" shows the nvidia driver loaded. It is only loaded when I boot up my old kernel

When I boot up my new kernel, nvidia does not load. If I type "modprobe nvidia" I get this message

/lib/module/2.6.9/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko no such file or directory

I had this problem some time back. The problem was (if I remember correctly) due to a symbol extern unsigned int __VMALLOC_RESERVE which for some reason the nvidia kernel can't use. As a very ugly hack I found the line in the kernel source which sets the value and added a line

unsigned int __VMALLOC_RESERVE = 128 << 20;

to nv.c just after the includes. This will most likely break horribly if I change the memory boundaries or if I use the mem= option to the kernel however in the meantime it has worked flawlessly.

nhs,

I think I have the patched driver installed. I got it from this site

http://ngc891.blogdns.net/index.php?...nvidia-drivers

Or were you talking about changind the kernel source code and recompiling?

I was referring to changing the source code for the NVidia driver (not the kernel). I wasn't aware that there was a patched version available at the time. This is just my quick hack to get a GUI running. I had a look at the page you linked to and it looks like their driver patch amounts to the same modification I described. Run "bash NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1.run -x" to extract the source and change NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1/usr/src/nv/nv.c as described above. Once modified running NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1/nvidia-installer ought to install the modified driver (successfully).

Thx nhs,

That worked great! What exactly does that extra line do?

The extra line just declares the symbol __VMALLOC_RESERVE with a default value which I copied from the kernel source (somewhere in the initialisation). It can be overridden with a command line option (vmalloc= I think) which is why it is declared as a variable. For some unknown (to me) reason the NVidia driver can't access this variable and therefore fails to compile. This line just gives it it's own copy which is used instead. The main problem with this approach is that if you were to override te default with a command line option then the NVidia driver and the main kernel would be out of sync potentially with nasty results.

hi there,
I seem to be having a similar problem to necbrownie, however I compiled a 2.4.32 kernel and
everything seems fined, the kernel loads and the nvidia module loads except when the x server
tries to startup the fatal (EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialze the nvidia kernel module. I was originally using the latest nvidia linux drivers the 8762 and followed the help given in this thread but to no avail since the lined specified in the nvidia source code did not exist in the latest nvidia driver source code so I changed to the 6111 driver and tried again but this time including the necessary line in the nv.c file but still the error message appears when x tries to start. I seems x refuses to use the driver for no other reason other than not being able to find a usable screen config which I have tried to modify several times. I have tried everything I would think of and all the help given in this thread and others as well as other forums. I have included the xorg log as well as the results of lsmod and ls -al /dev/nvidia. Any help would be very much appreciated, hopefully someone may see something I may have missed. thanks in advance

when i tried to use the modules from a custom made kernel, i had some problems
but when i downloaded the .run package from nvidia site and when you run that it will make a module for you and will also edit the xorg.conf file. so try that before compilling kernel many times to solve this issue.
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-8762.html
go to this page and download the run file and run it best of luck

sorry forgot to include that I did get the .run package from the nvidia website and installed it successfully with the driver altering the xorg.conf file for the x server to use the nvidia module everything appears to be correct yet the error keeps coming up
here's the xorg.conf file

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder3) Mon May 15 13:23:42 PDT 2006

# XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config

# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the

# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"

# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"
