Red face Nvidea card problem on Samsung 300E5A notebook


I tried to install nvidea driver from official website, from slackbuilds (installed core and drever), but nothing helped me. X window can't start.
I'm using x64 13.47
and nvidea card GeForceŽ GT 520MX.

Check to make sure you installed everything in the right order and with the correct dependencies. If it still doesn't work, then you can always just use the .run file directly from nvidia.

Maybe there is another driver for Intel processor computers?

Then you can't install the nvidia driver and use it directly. You have to use the intel Xorg driver, and use a project called bumblebee to access the nvidia GPU when running 3D applications.

Fore more information, see here.

If somebody wants to try switcheroo, I append information about it. But I don't know if that can really help with Optimus.

It's good, but I have current installed nvidea driver (by mistake, I didn't know that it won't work), and I don't know how to return to default driver and install Bumblebee....
But I don't want to reinstall all system again, I want to slove thiese problem without reinstallation of operating system......

Just the run the nvidia package like this:

Code:
./NVIDIA-* --uninstall
as root and it will uninstall itself.

I can't find too much on this laptop. You can try running it using the intel driver, but it may not work. Do you have a /etc/X11/xorg.conf ?

Yes, after installing of nvidea driver I have it.
-----
So, I will uninstall nvidea, and then how could I configure x system to use default driver (or intel driver)?

I can't uninstall using thiese command. I installed thiese driver using *.run installer....

------------------
ps. Maybe it will be a lot easier to reinstall all x-window system and there will be default settings?

Yes, you run the *.run installer again but with '--uninstall' after it.

You can make a simple xorg.conf:
Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier     "intel"
    Driver         "intel"
    VendorName     "Intel Corporation"
EndSection
It may not work because of optimus, in which case you should use bumblebee.
