Thread: nvidia driver doesn't work after automatic kernel update

  1. nvidia driver doesn't work after automatic kernel update

    -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
    Hash: SHA1

    OpenSuSE 10.3_x64: After automatic kernel update 2.6.22.16-0.1 nvidia
    driver doesn't work anymore.

    I allready tried the opensuse method of installing the driver and also
    compiling the kernel module with the NVidia installer.

    When X starts, the screen goes blank and the computer freezes (no input)

    Now I changed nvidia to nv in xorg.conf, to be able to work at all.

    I have a Geforce 8500 GT.

    after you compile the nvidia driver did you start sax to set the resolution
    did you also uninstall the suse nvidia driver before compiling the nvidia
    driver

    when I start sax2 the computer freezes and shows:
    stty: standard input: unable to perform all requested operations.

    and in /var/log/xorg.log und /var/log/SaX2.log it says fatal server error 11

    did you compile the new kernel, and on updating the kernel did you download
    the kernel-source, kernel-bigsmp as well the kernel-bigsmp should download
    by default but if memory serves me right the kernel-source is not.

    it was an automatic kernel-update through AOU and the kernel-sources are
    also updated. kernel is: 2.6.22.16-0.2-default

    Depends on what you mean by "new kernel" I think I am at 2.6.23
    something, and I installed my Nvidia drivers from the download of the
    file, not the one button approach, using the standard "SuSE" instruction
    on the Nvidia site... as root... from console with no instances of x
    running anywhere. switch "q" on the nvidia package and "sax2 -r -m
    0=nvidia" to set it up.

    I always get the source for anything I compile... in fact... I think
    most folks do. ;-] Nudge, nudge...

    But yeah... on a Debian system, I use git and grab stuff right off the
    fingertips of Mr. Torvalds' daily brainwaves... :-]

    On SuSE, I use what SuSE wants me to use as compiling freshly released
    materials can result in breaking some pieces of the whole SuSE package.
    (as in don't they modify/make their own kernel for release?)

    If you need to get your system back up, run "sax2 -r -m 0=vesa"
    That will change you back to a vesa mode, which your display can surely
    handle (I am asuming).

    Then, you can DL the actual file, and install it from a console with no
    x running anywhere.

    You could also put the file on a thumb drive on a another machine. :-]
    Then sneakernet it over to your sick bawx.
