View Full Version : Change video driver

Hi

I got the CD, booted and it ran fine, though I wasn't happy with the screen resolution. So I decided to do a HD-install, messed up my disk when partioning and at least have now a running version of linux on the disk.

I still have no clue though, how to install the correct video driver. This is what the lspci -v gave for the video card:

0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV20 [GeForce3] (rev a3) (prog-if 00 [VGA])
Subsystem: Hercules: Unknown device 0040
Flags: bus master, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16
Memory at f1000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
Memory at f4000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=64M]
Memory at f3800000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=512K]
Expansion ROM at f37f0000 [disabled] [size=64K]
Capabilities: [60] Power Management version 2
Capabilities: [44] AGP version 2.0

On Win2K I can run it with a resolution of 1920x1200 and that's what I would like to achieve here as well.

As I'm a complete newbie, I would like to thank you for a detailed description. Thanks A LOT in advance.

Some nvidia drivers would be in order, try this.




If you've got a Nvidia graphics card you'll need to install Nvidia 3D drivers with 2.6 kernel support after booting into 2.6 so download them and configure your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file if necessary prior to rebooting.


Get the latest official Nvidia driver with kernel 2.6 support from here:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux.html




Installing the nVidia 3D driver:


1) You'll most likely need to have the nvidia installer compile the driver so make sure you have the 2.6 kernel source installed in /usr/src/linux (if you're following this document then you already do). Also, remember that the linux in /usr/src/linux should be just a link to the kernel-source directory for your running kernel.


2) You'll need to logout of X before installing the driver, do this by opening a terminal and typing init 3, or init 1 (mine was init 1 but most ditro's use init 3 for logging in without X). Next, login as root, cd to the directory where you downloaded the nvidia intaller to, type ls and hit enter, type sh NV, hit the [tab] key then enter.


Configure XF86Config-4:


If this is your first time insalling the official nvidia driver then you'll need to follow the steps below. It's much easier to do these steps while logged into KDE/Gnome/etc... before you log out of X to run the installation routine, otherwise you'll need to know how to use the non graphical Vim text editor.

1) Open a console and make a backup of your XF86Config-4 file with:

cd /etc/X11
cp XF86Config-4 XF86Config-4-orig


2) Open your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file with a text editor. Under section "Module" make sure you have the following line:

Load "glx"

If you have these lines, remove them:

Load "dri"
Load "GLcore"

Now scroll down to the "Graphics device section" and change:

Driver "nv"

To:

Driver "nvidia"


3) Make the above changes, save, exit, reboot to your new kernel and cross your fingers.


Install Error's:

You must have the appropriate kernel source that matches your running kernel and a .config file in /usr/src/linux or nvidia won't compile.

If you receive any errors while running the nvidia installer then check this file:

/var/log/nvidia-installer.log

Hi Firebyrd

Thanks for your reply. I did that and it seems to be working. At least I get the gui back up after a reboot.

What still hasn't changed though is that the maximum resolution is still at 1024x768. How can I get the 1920x1200 that my monitor supports and that I have under Win2K?

In setup - control panel (in German Einstellungen - Kontrollzentrum) I can't chose anything higher than the 1024x768.

You'll need to edit the XF86 file again and add the resolution manually. Its not hard, just look at the other entries.

:( Unfortunately I wasn't lucky with that. The first try only reduced the choice down to a single option (1024 x 768) and the second try resulted in only a console login and no GUI at all. At least I am now back at the GUI with the original but still no improvement. And when I look at the log file, it seems that the NVidia drivers are not working.

Do you have any other ideas?
