nvidia drivers


I recently installed the new nvidia drivers. They seem to work fine themselves but as a side effect of installing them, I have a bunch of problems. 1. Anything I run in wine now uses 100% cpu. Before it would be down around 10-30%. 2. A lot of things fail to load on startup, but only sometimes. Most of the time smb4k fails to load then again it does sometimes. 3. I cannot start some apps. Like Amarok, something about it can't communicate with something. 4. When I shutdown or reboot I get a black screen w/ random white symbols filling the screen and going across it.

What is wrong with my system?

you need to take a look at your logs. There should be an install log in /var/log that tells how the nvidia install went. Are there any error messages there? The last time I upgraded my nVidia drivers, there was an issue with one of the libs, which I solved with a symlink, thereby solving all problems.

Also, in your XF86Config file (or XF86Config-4 or xorg.conf ) there will be a section where you load the driver and set options.

What does that section say?

I edited the xorg config file so that it would use the nvidia drivers rather than the nv driver. And my log file looks like this:

It all went well and the driver IS working, but these problems i metioned in my first post started happening imeadiatly afterwards.

Yes, your install went OK.

If there are anomalies that occurred when you did this install, then the place to look is in the libraries; the upgrade may have left you with some incompatible libraries someplace. Do a locate on libGL.so.1 and see where/how many copies you have.

Then do an ls -al on all lib.GL.so* that you find and compare the dates/versions. I have had problems with this on upgrades; likely you need to upgrade something else to restore complete compatibility.

When these things fail to load, are there any messages in var/log/messages ?

whereis libGL.so.1
libGL.so: /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 /usr/lib/libGL.so

and the ls -al gives a no such file or directory.
There are no error messeges when things fail to load. They ust don't load. Sometimes they hang in a box in the uper left corner but nothing comes of them.

probably the solution

Your kernel was configured to include rivafb support as
a loadable kernel module.

The rivafb driver conflicts with the NVIDIA driver; the
NVIDIA kernel module will still be built and installed,
but be aware that the NVIDIA driver will not be able to
function properly if the rivafb module is loaded!

*** Failed rivafb module sanity check, but continuing! ***

Look for a file called blacklist in /etc/hotplug/blacklist. and edit that file like this: at the bottom end, leave a blank line and then add rivafb then save the file and logout. This will stop that module wich conflict with the nvidia driver from loading. I dont know about your distro but that file may also be there...

Your problem is easy to fix.


you are most probably running a graphical boot. or you have set the vga= kernel option to something other than the default. Remove all vga=??? lines from grub.conf or lilo.conf (whatever applies to you) and rebuild the boot sector (run lilo ... you don't need to do anything for grub).

reboot

that should fix it.

Kobra_Stryke's fix worked great. What is the reasoning behind why a graphical iunterface wont work with nvidia drivers?
I also did Davno's suggestion after I did Kobra's and I didn't notice a difference in anything, but I left the blacklist file modified afterwards anyways.

However while my other problem may not be related, I think it is since it happened after the new drivers. Wine still uses 100% CPU when I run anything under wine. This means I can't set something up in wine to run in the background and expect to be able to do anything else. Anyone know anything on wine and drivers or other reasons it might not be working correctly anymore?
